    Contact Wally on here, he is quite the expert and has tuned and fixed all the rifles from TS in any case.

    Try Hermann, "Wally the clown" on this forum. He did it for TS anyway.

    JTK, i dont know.....after +-2000 shots i am still not consistent with the XL. Maybe its me. Then there is the occasional dieselling and it is very harsh to shoot, compaired to my Meteor, witch is all I have to compair it to. I go thru breach seals like you will not believe. I am on my 4th seal now and it is on its way out. Dont get me wrong, I luv the rifle. I knew it was what I wanted the first time I saw it in AGW, but it is not sweet to shoot like the Meteor. But like I said, maybe its me. I think I should let some one who know XL's beter, take a couple of shots with it and give me their opinnion.

    Another thing. The recoil is so severe, the scope stop on the gun made a 3mm notch in my scope mount where it made contact. I changed the mount from a 3 bolt solid to a 4 bolt solid mount, after it killed a Nikko Stirling Nighteater in less than 20 shots. I took the Nighteater back to the dealer and they replaced it with a Nikko Stirling Airking 4x32(R800) plus the Hawk 4 bolt mount plus pellets and targets and stuff to make up the price of the Nighteater(R1600). Now I use the Nikko Stirling Airking 2-7x32 that I bought with the gun. The 4x32 is on the Meteor.

    If your Lightning XL is one of the FAC ones you will end up hating it.
    Sharpedge brought in the FAC ones only and they are BAD!

    Detune it and put a sub 12 fpe kit in it...it will be transformed.!
