using iron sights and benchrested using a sight vise (1" AGE High Mounts and Gamo Stop on order for my 44 Mag) after shooting 50 pellets. It groups consistantly the same. This CFX will go to Field target very soon and will be passed around the CASA members for further evaluation. The trigger is 5 pounds, but smooth and with a predictable second stage that I adjusted the travel out of. The CFX has a smoother cycle than my Mendoza RM600. The RM600 has a slightly better trigger. I hope Skyler has the trigger inserts ready soon. This CFX will be at the California State Nationals for anyone who wants to try it. This is a Refurbished unit, so I do not know how many pellets have been shot through it. Ric

<P>Remind me never to get on your "fecal catalog."</P>
<P>Seriously, it is heartening to see that others are confirming some of the impressions I have of the CFX.</P>
<P>The trigger will "run in" and improve somewhat with use.</P>
<P>My CFX still sound like a box of loose parts when it goes off (a sound that Bob Ford has described as "nasty").</P>
<P>I look forward to your further experiments with the CFX.</P>

open sights, Jock. This gun will be passed around the CASA Club, because I do not expect anyone to trust my individual results. The CFX will sell itself to any shooter who tries it. It handles like no other Gamo I've tried. Should be a cinch with the Simmons 44 Mag mounted. Ric

telling why it was sent back or at what stage of ownership. PA Pistolero said his refurb appeared brand new. BTW, is your serial number on the barrel or the receiver?

I've tried in those barrels are not "FT" worthy at 50 yds.

It will be tried on the Field Target circuit after more pellet testing. Ric
