    I know i do

    Kev
    It cost me about 35 for a complete tuning kit and piston seal from Maccari, the rest was down to a lot of elbow grease really (and some moly paste). Apart from that, the bling was just to keep me happy. It shoots just as well without it.

    no such words as alot or ect, and do you really want to add a second 'o' in 'lose', unless you're talking about something that isn't very tight?

    Fast reply thanks for that.
    What sort of price was it? If you don't mind giving that information!
    The trouble is, will I get snubbed if I turned up a a Rifle club with the XS19?
    Are Chinese imported rifles really that Bad?
    I read that the SMK XS Super Grade Series Rifles are Checked at the UK Factory or whatever for quality ect before being distributed. Do you know if this is true?
    Why are these Daystate ect Rifles so Big? May be a Daft question but I'm only just starting out.
    Thanks Kev.
    Just Looking for a good cheap rifle that will get me out there and not get laughed at by these Daystate,Logon ect owners.
    You see where I'm coming from?
    Thank again.
    Tony..
    I bought a Chinese Rifle after losing it with 3 faulty pistols in a row and paid 70 for it, (around 100 now)
    it is a QB78 Deluxe .22 (No Less) it takes 2x12gram Co2 cartridges the butt is Chinese Beech, sights are truglo, bolt action (snazzy gold bolt) instructions in Serbo Croat,
    It has a good single stage trigger, and initially chucked pellets everywhere??

    using much gun oil a rod and plastic brush removed shedloads of black muck from barrel,
    shoots brilliantly, it likes JSB Exacts, I have done comps with it, scoring 38 out of 60 all standing shots (Dodgy Legs) as for snobs? shoot well and why worry,

    ATB, Bernard.

    Thumbs up Smk 15

    Yesterday I had a ride to Manchester Airguns, I phoned earlier to ask if they had any junior rifles, after having an SMK 20 I was a bit dubious when the guy raved about the SMK 15. All I can say is I'm a convert to the NEW range that is being imported, no more Rough Sharp edges, Bad wood,or sub standard Bolts pins etc,They seem to have taken notice of the importers and now produce good standard Rifles. The Price for the SMK 15 45 Bargain
    does it shoot well in a word Yes, It can hit the 25mm on my Knockover 9/10.Straight from the box, Needs another session to get rid of the excess oil. but so far its a winner.

    i had the smk 20 when it first came out.- had the despute over the silencer. In the picture it had a silencer/barrel weight but when delivered it didn't. well the first one was sent back after 2 weeks as it wouldn't group.. 20 pellets in a sheet of a4 paper at 20 yards. all over it. so it was returned and i was told the scope groves hadn't been cut correctly.!!

    so a new one was sent out and after 2 weeks the same issue. i put up with this for a bit, striped it down and polished it all up and shimmed the barrel. it was better but in the end i throw it in the bin. literally. for the money your better getting a 95k. which is what its based on. chineses copy pooh

    I think they were just being kind
    Mine groups well at 20 yards and only starts to lose it at 40+.

    if people had the money that is what they would buy in the first place...
    Seriously, they are a much improved range, and i was well happy with the recent run in with an smk19, nice smooth rifle, and for 100, cant complain.

    You are not the first person i have heard having had trouble. It seems to me that you either get a good one or a badun and there is no quality control even on these shores as claimed in the advert. The XS20 is quite good when a good one is found and for the money can't go wrong again if a goodun,Still not as good as the HW80 though

    That's because it's like a 95.

    Seriously, and without bias, I wouldn't have one given. I once had one given, so I know what I'm talking about. I spent many a hour trying to get it something like. Waste of time. I gave it back. I don't give anything away that is of the remotest bit of use or value. What does that tell you?

    It tells me you don't know how to tune a Chinese rifle.

    These guns aren't an 80 ,or 95,or whatever,
    they are what they are,low priced full sized,full power,guns,
    that if fettled correctly can send their pellet where you are aiming,
    also the more they are used,the better they become,
    they don't have delusions of grandure,you get 'what it says on the tin'
    if in doubt,buy a hw ,but in all fairness ,new hw's can't scream top quality
    these days,
    and the customer service from the importer
    absoulutely stinks,
    when i had a problem with an smk,bgt couldn't have done enough for me,same with dai too.

    You think?

    I took it totally apart. All internals polished and relubed. Spring guides and top hat made and fitted. Trigger totally stripped, ground and repolished. Stock drilled and lead weights fitted to improve balance. Shooting within 5 ft/sec. Sod all recoil. Trigger sweet as anything. Still wouldn't hit a barn door at ten yards! Seriously, it was doing 6" groups at 20 yds. I rest my case.

    i never had the xs19 , but i do have the 20 , i bought it cos a friend of mine had one for a few years , been shooting at my club with it, and done very well , i allways thought it would fall apart or something
    but he did as well as me with my hw95 so i decided to give one a go ,
    well mine works perfect to , ,so is it just down to luck ? , and i have done nothing to it at all , drop of oil on the pivots and sent about 10 tins of pellets through it ,
    and i sold the hw95.
