I love the gun. Only had 2 FTE on the first 70 rounds. That was with CCI Blazers but during rapid fire. Tried the Winchester and Federal 550 round bulk and haven't had any problems with FTF or FTE. The only real problem I've had is that I can't get better than 3" groups at 35 yds. Could be my unfamiliarity with using peep sights or more likely the 20 lb trigger pull. It may not be 20 lbs but it's definitely the stiffest trigger I've ever had on a gun. Will probably have to try a bench rest and scope to see what the gun is really capable of but a scope kind of defeats the purpose of what this gun is for.
The barrel also seems kind of fragile, like it would bend if you get careless with it. Might be tougher than it seems, sure hope so. It's not really a problem because the incredibly light weight of the gun is worth the trade off of a solid steel barrel. Also wasn't sure if I'd like the cheesy looking bright orange front sight but it seems pretty easy to pick up with the rear peep. Not as bad as I thought it would be.
On the other hand, I have a really nice Marlin bolt action .22 for squirrel hunting so this gun is really just for plinking. Will probably use it for hunting occasionally if I can tighten the groups.
I've read a LOT of reviews on this gun before I bought it and most of them say to get the Marlin Papoose. The problem with that advice is that if you want to add an AR-7 to your collection, the Marlin Papoose is not an AR-7.
This is definitely the most fun gun to shoot that I own. Would have given it 5 stars if it weren't for the crappy trigger pull. Hopefully, it'll smooth out the more I shoot it. If anything happened to it I'd get another one in a heart beat.
