    Default Received my Rapid today.

    Finally received my Theoben Rapid MK II today. Its a 35 ft/lbs .20 with S-Type stock, Harris bipod and 500 cc bottle.
    I waited 8 months and 2 days for this rifle. Buying from Twinbore was a painfull and frustrating experience. For the last 6 weeks I started phoning Theoben directly and had better results.

    I waited 5 months for my Rapid from Twinbore, and the order came through incorrect!!

    I fitted a quickfill adapter to mine since the filling method on the Rapid is PATHETIC!

    and a Weaver scope rail, oversized bolt, took off the cr@p varnish that Theoben used...hand oiled the stock .
    I must say for a rifle costing over 18k I was not happy.


    BTW I have a spare Theoben Weaver rail if u are interested...much better mounting system than the ridiculous Theoben rings!

    Joggie, I paid to much for it. Initial cost including extras was not that bad - but they messed up every time they try to send it. Finally they used somebody else to send it and I offered to pay for that (just could not wait any longer).

    Theoben should be made aware of the bad service the local importer is giving...

    Theoben suggested to send it as a "12 ft/lbs" rifle to save time. 23" Barrel and the 35ft/lbs hammer springs were send in a seperate parcel and I am still wating for that. Talked to Tony at Theoben this morning and he explained to me that i just need to replace the 19" barrel with the 23" one as well as the hammer springs.
