<p>As I stated in another thread, this is my leap of faith; a Metal Framed field target rifle built by Bori and his sons at Topgun-Airguns.  Not much to to tell, as I just unwrapped it and grabbed some stills to share with the forum:</p><p></p><p></p><p></p><p></p><p></p><p></p>

I thought it was one of mine by the heading of the post. Same initials!

Is that an Air Arms S400 style action with their new sidelever breech? That looks like a formidable setup and if it as half as accurate as the S400E I used to have it will probably be tackdriver accurate. Nice looking stock too. Is this something they are gonna be offering for sale or a project to pass the time? Nice...peace

<p>Yes, this rifle is based on an S400 action and MPR FT trigger group.  Here is the website:</p><p>http://topgun-airguns.com/metal-stocks.html</p><p>So far the only issue is the cheek weld... The base that the cheek riser and butt stock are mounted too, is made for the right hand... and I shoot lefty... simple fix, if Topgun has a lefty style piece.</p><p> </p>

Johnnie, that looks great. Can't wait to see it at a future match. Is is regulated?

The action is merely a stock S400, so I would venture to say unregulated.  I have a few minor issues to get ironed out, and we'll see if it will make it out to play...

I can see where that might raise a concern... I edited the title accordingly.

only reads about 140 bar and I fill to 3100.

...as BAR measurements are still in the catagory of metric to me.  But I am fairly confident without having the rifle in front of me, that it is unregulated.  Obviously an upgrade I would consider for future reference.

read about 200 bar when full. Of course, not all gauges are created equal. Mine is
a little off, not by much.
If you have been shooting lefty, why not just give it a go? You are already used to
left eye/left trigger finger. Pretty late in the game to change.
Love the stock. Good luck.
