ok i got this gun the day after Christmas and right out of the box the eye harness was broken. Got that fixed and then no one told me that you cant dry fire this gun without a barrel so i warped the breach and on top of that somehow my eye harness broke again. And the new screws that they put in them are made in china so i stripped the eye piece screw. This gun also gets bad first ball drop off even with ABS on.
Besides all the problems i actually like this gun. Its light and small so its good for snake players.
Its a really good gun but when u buy it just be prepared for some problems and be careful because the parts are easy to break even when u dont touch them.
Unfortunately for you and fortunately for the rest of us, I have to agree with ikey, sounds like you got a lemon! They are not like that, mine and several others haven't had a bit of trouble except normal tweeks upon break in. Take it back for an exchange and get one that rips like it can and should! Good luck.
Dispute: The only reason the eye keeps breaking obviously is because when installing back together it gets caught and rips the ribbon. If you don't know how to be careful or patient I recommend you don't take your gun apart. I say unpatient because it shows when you overtightened your eye covers. Take it to a certified gun tech or read the manual and grow patients. Not trying to be mean but trying to save you money.
