I am thinking of selling both my pcp's and diving cylinder to buy a new Nova Freedom in 5.5. I only need one PCP for PC and will not do much target shooting so the constant pumping will not bother me at all.
But I have some concerns or questions before I buy.
1. Apparently this gun can start leaking quite easily. Due to a o-ring on the built-in pump. Some said that happens only when you pump at a fast rate and it heats up a lot, not when you just top it up after a shot or 2 and keep the pressure below 2600psi.
2. Moisture. So how does this rifle make sure no moisture gets in the pressure tank? With a hand pump etc the moisture can be drained, but not on this rifle? How dangerous can this be over time?
3. Spares availability and ease of service. Can all of the airguns guros easily fix the rifle if something goes wrong, especially with the built in pump?
4. If the rifle is too loud for my liking, can a silencer be fitted to the shrouded barrel?
