You may be right, Manny.  Whatever's going on is outside my level of expertise, so I have sent an e-mail to Jacob at JSAR requesting their assistance.  I may have to send it in and have the experts take a look at it.  I'll know more when I hear back from them.

Knife, suggested that if you're resting the air tube on a stand, that it may cause erratic groups. Mine is doing fine though. It likes the JSB 18gn and the K&N sniper magnums. Blew a lizard in half the other day, that wandered onto my target, FIRST shot! 20 yards. I'll get some more video in a day or two. absolutely whisper quiet with a moderator on it. :D

Yea, I saw his post about resting it on the air tube.  The rest I use fits under the forearm and just behind the pistol grip, so only the stock is touching the rest.  I don't think that's the issue with my rifle.  Hopefully, it is just a bad barrel and the one Travis sends will resolve the issue.  I guess things like this can happen to any air gun manufacturer!  I'm just thankful for the support we have here in the Sates with Travis and crew at JSAR!

On a slightly different subject, anyone else notice that the cone baffles from a Marauder fit nicely in the free space between the end of the barrel and the end of the shroud?  Three of them fit nicely in that space when you remove the cone shaped piece from the end cap and add a spring next to the air stripper at the end of the barrel!   It doesn't quiet it a lot, but it does tone it down a little...

Can't wait for when Travis finds springs,
 I will buy one for taking it back to stock power and hopefully one to power it up, but primary I would like this gun to stay with the Lover power tune, and then get the bigger springs in there needed,
so I'm really looking forward to the new Magazines to be able to shoot the 14gr pellets

I saw them on the Airgun Depot website for $69.99. They have a 14% off code right now with free shipping on orders of over $49.00 also. I picked up another spare  magazine and 4 tins of different heavy pellets to try in it.

 The Air speed mags are not the same as rainstorm etc mags and if you use them get ready for serious jams.

Anyone heard if walnut stocks for these will be available in the near future ??? The way I see it is these guns deserve to be available with a walnut stock, especially after seeing what others have said about the quality machining that goes into them.  .   .  .  There's just something to be said about the allure of a nice walnut stock.

The dual Mag was designed for the old Semi-Full auto,....the design of those mags will not aloud you to get past the probe since the plate goes all around vs the Air Speed mag that has a gap so it can slide past the plate

I ordered a single mag from AGD with their 14% off code, I guess I'll see if it works or not when it arrives.  If not, I'll be sending it back.  They only show the back side view, so you can't see if it has the cutout for the bolt probe or not. It said it would work in the Evanix Speed, which I know is different than the Air Speed, but I was hopeful they were the same.

Paul, did you by chance try removing the shroud from the rifle ? It could be an alignment issue with either the stripper or endcap . Maybe I missed it if you tried that already.

I did not remove the shroud completely and then shoot the rifle, however, at Travisí suggestion, I did remove the end cap to eliminate the possibility of clipping.  The groups were actually tighter with the end cap installed, so I believe they eliminated clipping as a problem.
