Bought this gun used just a couple of months ago off yellow air guns classifieds.
It is a large gun with wooden adjustable hand fitting grips. It is recoilless and capable of match type accuracy. Rested from a bench at 10 meters I regularly shoot one hole 5 shot groups.
The trigger is fully adjustable. As it came to me it was a one stage mushy, creepy trigger. I immediately adjusted it to be a true two stage with the first stage stopping abruptly with a bump, then the second creep free stage fires with only a bit of increased pressure. It only took a handfull of “prematurely fired” shots to get the hang of bringing the trigger quickly to the second stage with out firing the gun.
The sights are true match type sights with positive click adjustments. The front inserts are interchangable though only one came with the gun. The rear sight has four different notch types/widths to suit your tastes.
Cocking force is moderate and no cocking assist is needed.
This is a really great gun which is no longer made due to the cost of manufacturing it compared to a single stroke pneumatic.
Cost of a really good used gun is increasing at a good pace due to the fact these are great guns and are very collectable. Very good specimans of the 6M with the wood grips are going for around $250 – $300. Don’t bother to buy the ones with plastic grips unless they are under $175. Those grips are not adjustable and will cost you 5 – 10 points off your score in a match. I just saw a mint version of a cased 10 M (much fancier version of this one) with all accessories go for $500!!
If you like to shoot pistols, you will love this one. If you can find one at a reasonable price, BUY IT!!! Be sure to determine if the seals are good. If they are not, it will cost you about $150 to have it repaired! So price it accordingly. Which means only about $100 – $150 for the gun.
Lots of sellers put a disclaimer that they don’t know if the seals are good or not. If it says that, THEY AREN’T!!! It only takes a couple of pellets to determine if they are good or not! So they either know they are bad, or did not test them because they suspect they are bad! Either way, the gun should be priced as a non-shooter.
