Fixed my Matador R3.5m
« on: February 23, 2018, 06:10:15 PM »
First thank you Brian for the prompt return phone call and e-mail response. the fix for my magazine was a 5 minute process. all that was needed was to remove the bolt assembly and replace the worn o-ring that puts upward tension on the magazine actuator and allows the magazine to advance to the next pellet. So now my Matador is back to flawless  ;D ;D

The Matador is well thought out and the design allows anybody with mechanical aptitude and a few basic tools to do essential repairs.

Again thank you for the prompt response and clear explanation

Thanks again and that last tidbit is good to know. When will you have a side lever cocking assembly for the R3 that would make an awesome bullpup the dream gun for many AG lovers out there
