Near cocker performance.
Great on paper...ends there though
Not a cocker
Actually more complicated than a cocker.....which I didnt think was possible
Good luck selling this bad boy
There is a store near me that has a used one. I offered them $50 for it and they are actually seriously considering it. No bs
This gun was a good concept. You cant blame them for trying. They were attempting to feed off of cockers like...I dont know, maybe a Titan or Raptor did off a Spyder. No cigar though
A poor gun at a poor price
you frigging havent even shot it. reviews like yours is why the credability of the reviews on pbreview.com is going down. i wish you had some brains to think that you might need to actually shoot a gun to review it.
WHAT AN IGNORANT REVIEW, NEVER SHOT THE THING AND YET HAS DETERMINED THAT IT IS A POOR GUN?! Actually, while it is about as complicated as a cocker, most of the timing and tuning needed on a cocker is not required on the Sovereign. For instance, the cocking block distance from the body is set by rotating the lower cocking rod and fixed PERMANENTLY at about 1-2 mm until the next time you remove the lower cocking rod from the bolt, which for me has been just once after many years of owning the thing. On a cocker you need to adjust the distance so it is just far enough for a sheet of paper to slip in, but not touching the body whenever the side rod or cocking block has been removed from the gun.
I can't believe they even permit this guy on the website! How can you review a gun you saw in a shop and rate it's accuracy and quality based upon it's appearance on a shelf. This is a classic design and only a fool would call it a cocker wannabe. The Sovereign is a hybrid of the Nelson and Sheridan valve designs and produces the best of both worlds. The Sovereign II is a new and improved version with even higher machine tolerances. I'm proud to have one in my collection alongside the classics.
