finally have my hands on a 78 !! Many Thanks to COR for bringng one in for me.
Stock These little marvels generaly shoot quite well with fairly decent grouping.
Having said this they are Chinese made and require a good clean and a once over at very least.
With some mild Mods it transforms this Air Rifle into an absolute MACHINE !!
