I’ve got an R3M .25. If you find one of the early ones, make SURE the magazine cycling issue is not present. Several early versions had the magazines cycle such that they did not line up with the breech. It appeared the cocking plate was not correctly sized and one of the machinist fellows on this forum made/sold a replacement part which fixed the issue. I got one and it worked.
You can see the magazine jump a bit if the alignment is off; the pellet’s head forces the magazine to line up as it enters the breech. This can damage the pellet’s head slightly and throw off accuracy. If everything is working correctly, they’re crazy accurate. Mine is a R3M long, more shots and fits my tall build better. Forward cocking guns are generally easier to use.
