No,it is a very well made rifle, Perhaps because of the weight I can shoot it freestanding better than my AA 400 Carbine, the only question I have is that there might possibly be a problem after heavy use with the magazine because the indexing  rack molded into the mag seems fragile. It might, after thousands of shots fail, I am only surmising that could happen,only time will tell. for the money it is a very good rifle, Cheers.

Hello Tron, I had a problem wih my Hammerli 850, cleaned and lubed my pellets , now no problems..

How rude we ask questions to find out if it's worth buying?

Not rude, I posted my concerns about possible life span of the R8 magazine, you responded asking if I was talking about the mag? or the operating mechanism?? Your next post asked about what moderator I use? whats that got to do about the R8 I havent the faintest idea. anyway   MERRY XMAS to the members on here. :bye: :bye:

Hey Matt, What price are they fetching in London? I have looked at some of the ads and a lot of shops are asking £450. I paid £400. for mine and I read somebody got one for £375 back in August!, I think after Xmas the prices will probally start rising. If you can get one for £400, snap it up

I quite fancy a .177 version at some point, after converting a 850 to hpa, very successfully, I can see how good a rifle this will be, mine was super accurate, and the magazine smooth as silk after a couple of hundred shots, I am assuming the r8 has the same trigger as the 850, if it does, there is a super simple mod, to convert the trigger to two stage which I did on mine and it totally transforms, a pretty dead feeling but ok trigger into a crisp two stage group shrinker.

Hmm my reservations are about the power of the .177, Welsh willy said his .22 was a little underpowered about 10.7 I think, it is easy to modify them to get them up to just below legal limit though, but I will be interested to see what the first .177s are producing, about 9.5- 10 will be my guess, but we will see, not a .22 fan mate, its .177 for me everytime.
