That's why Peter Kang used G&P to start importing that way, removed all manuals, installed heavy springs and let the RCMP test the guns. He brought alot of them in that way too, at least 20 or more made their way to Northern Alberta, where I replaced the springs in many of them with something a little less than the 450fps the came to us with.

Think about how many guns come with a manual or printing on the box stating velocity. How do you pre-upgrade them, and make it reasonable to believe?
If you allow the guns to be tested for muzzle velocity, isn't
it done at your expense?

Sad to see another store close, but ASC classifieds have always
had more to offer every day of the week— plenty of new and
quality used items. As a player I'm not worried at all, because
the temptation to "bring in" what we want will always keep some
new toys flowing into this forum. If your a hobbyist/collector
then it's probably time to find a new one.
