...that is Indy-like. Costs around 400 bucks.

Just an FYI. I feel that FX, though very nice products, are over priced IMHO. I'll buy powder burners over an airgun at those prices.

I have had an Independence for about 5 years, and have put a tin or so a year thru it. I agree w most everything said so far. Outstanding accurate, a little heavy (like most airguns). I usually shoot three times, then pump 10-12 strokes. I would shoot it more if it didn't need repairs so often.

I have resealed it myself twice. Third time, about a year ago, sent it to AZ to see if he could improve it. He disassembled it, cleaned it up and did some research. He didn't think that he came up w much.

For no good reason I haven't really shot it since getting it back. Have two of next three weeks off, maybe that can be remedied.

How many rebuilds in your 34000 shots?

Any other advice?

Unfortunately, the majority of feedback sounds like the fellow in the post below. Bad new travels like Wildfire, good news travels slow!
Fortunately, Mr. H. Is going to send me an Independence to try for myself. Can't wait! !
