Has your 58 arrived. I am waiting to see what you think of it.
Don't think I have seen any in the UK.

It just arrived and it is Beautiful looking.
I unpacked it to find the action removed from the stock and the "red release button" carefully taped in place in the stock to not get lost.
 But when I installed the action into the stock, the button doesent release the lever and simply falls out of the stock. The seller is trying to help by advising to release the safety and pull the trigger to assemble. No luck, button still falls out and wont release the lever.
 I am over looking something or can not comprehend what he is saying....

Oh jeezus... I just figured it out. He shipped it with the button taped in from the out side. The "head" goes to the inside...I had assembled it with the release button upside down as shipped...
I feel stoopid!!!
Pics tomorrow.

When I said Beautiful, here is what I meant.
 Can hardly wait to get the scope mounted and try her out...

Depending on what part you need Geoff, that may be a possibility.
 I have read the QB57 is a close sister to the 58, other than t Take Down parts and the trigger linkage since it  is a pseudo Bullpup('ish)

My QB58 .177 wonder, wonderful it likes cheap pellets. Gamo hunters, Beeman hollowpoint coated and surprisingly Crosman Destroyer EX. One holer @ 17 yrds. I replaced the plastic trigger guard with crosman aluminum and solid trigger from newer Crosman springers'...just have to tweak it a bit. I had the gold trigger before but didn't like hair trigger with this finger chopping loader.

How do you word it... "Air Guns" or "AirGuns"?
