I should also add that the 22 ci bottle I put on it shoots forever! Somewhere in the area of 200 shots! And I got the reg set at 1200.
The bolt is super smooth. I crafted a single shot tray for it because all I do is target shoot and that is just my preferred way. At 25 yards its just a same hole tack buster. At 50 yards I am in between the crosshair and the first mil dot. I was gonna do some hammer spring work on it, but decided to hold off--its shooting good enough really.
My Gauntlet is a Hajimoto build and my M2 keeps right up with it, but the M2 has a smoother bolt and is lighter. M2 built in Germany. Gauntlet built in China. Is that the difference? Not sure. Hajimoto does great work though. I got about $400 into my M2. The Gauntlet I have almost $700 into.
You be the judge.
