I have to agree, Guy. Over the years many of these have passed through my workshop. The Panthers, RO72's and Rekord models ... all total crap to an engineer.
I suppose they did serve a purpose as many of them were sold, but there must have been an awful lot of dissapointed kids when their airguns finally broke and were found to be un repairable.
I would also include the G10 in that bunch , and mmuch higher up the chain ..... Relums ......total crap , and yes I have read the ' carbining a tornado' thread .... You can't polish a turd. !
New year , new policy .. no more being nice , tell it like it is.
Oh dear what have you started ?
