    My ultra Mmc tactical single shot .177, has been my main hunting tool for the last 5 years, never let me down ,mega accurate with bisley mags. Find I can cock and load with minimal movement, very quiet to cock if you take the probe release pressure with your thumb..essential when hiding in a barn. It accounted for over 100 jackdaws last year alone at ranges upto 45 yards. I've hunted with airguns since I was 11 and own 17 rifles now, the ultra has been my best hunting gun by far.

The concept is great for hunting guns, you can leave the pellet in the barrel and cock / decock the hammer making the gun safe to carry in the woods etc. It's also much more silent to cock than a bolt action. The only downside to me is the front cocking knob which is PITA when shooting from bench, one of those side cocking conversions will fix that.
    Off topic ( I like the Ultra and Hornet BTW, I had a lovely .22 JB Hornet), I'm going to be in Helsinki for some time this summer, it would be great to come up to Tampere one day and see some of these big calibre airguns. I've tried an FAC HW80 at 25 ft/lbs, I suspect that this is another ball game altogether
    Do you think that would be possible sometime during June?

    It is indeed a completely different thing to shoot some serious bigbores We have comps at Iittala range if you want to join us, 17.6 is 100M airgun BR, 15.7 100M bigbore silhouette comp and 26.8 200M airgun BR if any of those fits your schedule. 100M BR is a mix of small bores and bigbores usually, I'm yet undecided whether I'll use my .25 or .357 for that.

    I thought the BBS's "big bores" would be enough for anyone.

    Did you have the volume turned up high Moley? It was quite a low key review on my 'phone.
    I didn't agree with everything Catatonia said, especially about the trigger being sublime, but he's having a go and doing a reasonable job.
    For the more inexperienced airgunners, I think it's a useful and informative review.
    The point about the release system breaking is only relevent if you're daft enough to let it fly back under it's own steam. Anyone who ever owned one learned within 10 minutes that the probe needed to be cushioned.
    Your point about it being loud is irrelevent too. It's a short barrelled carbine so needs a silencer and, with one, it's as quiet as any other carbine.
    Keep up the good work please Catatonia. You're helping more people than you think.
    Go easy on the 'Just For Men' though mate :-)

    Some , including me, like the MMC system and I found it a joy and easy to use. Each to their own and why we have hundreds of rifles to chose from.
    Going off aim with the MMC, well for me I would go off aim much more with a cocking bolt or lever and hence why I like the MMC system. It is a pain for bench shooting, but that is not what it is designed for.
    The joys of doing a video semi unscripted, is that sometimes I make mistakes. I didn't realize I said side lever when I meant cocking lever. Thanks for pointing this out as overs have done.
    Never allow the pellet probe to spring back on its own power with the Ultra MMC as it will eventually damage it. Use your thumb to ease it back as I showed in the video and there are no issues.
    There are hundreds of owners who have had many problems with the BSA magazines and hence why they were re-designed and replaced by BSA to owners for new ones or are all these owners and BSA wrong ?
    If you are going to insult someone, at least spell moron correctly

    Thanks for your thought provoking comments
    Very well said Steve, our Mr Mole does get carried away now and then

    Maroon

    I think you'll find he meant maroon! An excessively loud noise designed to draw attention to itself! He makes a valid point. It went right over your heads.
