    Although it's quite long @ 47.25", I like the looks of that AR3000FC

    Noticed it was brought in as a "sample"...have you had a chance to go over it yet, possibly fire off a few rounds?

    I know the stocks are different, but it would be interesting to see how the mechanical aspect compares to the XS46U - i.e: cocking effort, "twanginess" (not even sure that's an actual word), accuracy, etc...

    I have tested all of the new rifles over a chrony, and I don't have the specific numbers handy- the SAG guns were all within 5% of the stated specs- some were actually higher- even after a dozen shots (i.e. not detonating). The 3000 (and the B36) have a better underlever lockup/closing position than the XS46U in my view, and also has a neat little padded scope stop included with it, and a very good stock for a Chinese product. The 46U is also solid. Bottom line is- I'm not the best judge of underlevers or sidelevers- I prefer a regular breakbarrel. That being said, these are definitely not rifles of the (low) quality of the old B3/B4 non-PAL rifles which made me very nervous in respect to their crappy build quality and lack of cocking lockup to prevent the loading door from slamming on one's fingers.

    All that being said, if things don't sell, I won't order more in- I can't bring in products where only one sells every 6 months or such.
    I'd say I care- but I'd probably be lying...
