Reading all this, I am interested in one as well. Probably need one to join Wladek's game in September anyway :-)
Bootedfeet, wonder if they discount for buying more.

If you wanted to place a bulk order, I'd be on for it.

Well if there is going to be a bulk order I'd certainly be up for it, the MP40 is very nice but there's something very satisfying (and authentic) about working a rifle bolt. :)
I've fired a bullet on every continent. Nearly hit someone, too.

one word of warning about khmountain , i asked if they could put mu ukara No on the box , they did not and further they marked it as toy part's $30 , now it came through customs un checked and i paid no tax but i dread to think what would have happened if it had been checked , at the very least a long delay in delivery while they check thing's out , this happened with my German great coat but all that caused was a tax payment and a delay , importing a RIF without the ukara or afra number on the package could be risky .

they put it on mine just above my name and address , which may have been why mine did not slip through as safely as yours , but to be honest £23 paid was pretty good and it got through ok :) and for parcel farce and there customs dept pretty fast , the slowest part was waiting for the damm charges.

ta for the heads up on them as saved me £100 as nearly got in the uk

after a few hundred rounds plinking I've found some wear in the hammer piece on the under side at the rear of the bolt , so far it seems to have had little effect on performance but it is never the less worrying .

i took the precaution of making a steel one up but this is not an option open to many people ,took me over 4 hours so not practical cost wise to get me to make them on mass as i'd have to charge over £50 for them.hopefully it will not be an issue or maybe as G+G did a harder wearing part will be offered as a replacement.

My mags have been charged since I first got the gun and have all retained gas and are working without issue.

I finally got to use mine in a game yesterday, all be it a 'walk on skirmish game'. Set at 305fps using a 0.25g BB, (322 being our site limit with 0.25s) the effective range was actually rather good as was the accuracy. I managed a couple of pretty good kills (if I say so myself) and am very pleased so far. I did need to tweak the hop at the start of the day, but I put that down to the change in temperature, giving me a little rise in fps.

Alas, I only played for an hour or so as I had marshalling duties and other stuff to do but thoroughly enjoyed my first game as a Gerry.

I will keep an eye on the bolt as Dadio has pointed out and may fettle a new part if needed.

I really do like this PPS gun, so much so that I am tempted to get one of their Nagants or possibly their 'modern' boltie too.

good to hear , i reckon the bit that wears could be drilled out and tapped then a steel screw inserted ,locktighted and filed to shape if needed , it also is the pawl for the trigger sear so it could be just filed back without affecting the net throw of the hammer .

ok so she had her first taste of action today and the gun was flawless , a little adjustment of the hop during the day as it bedded in or warmed up but no dig deal as it can be adjusted with a fingernail in the screw head .the only down side was i lost a little spring from one magazine , the spring pushes up a piece at the back of the mag that the hammer hit's to release the gas , i managed to wedge a piece of twig in place and it worked perfectly all day , the other mag's i stuck a piece of chewing gum over the spring to stop them falling out , evidently this is a common fault on the Tanaka's as well . other than that i'd say go ahead and get one , really impressed .

Mine has just arrived today, around £270 delivered from eHobbyAsia including £53 customs. Can anyone go through adjusting the FPS in really simple terms? All this gas malarky is brand new to me! :oops:
