    I recently acquired one of these at a heck of a discount from a local fun shop. Other than a few basics that I read on a TFL thread from 2007, there isn't much I've been able to find about this rifle. I was curious about how many were actually produced, first of all. I read it was around 2200 total, but I was wondering if any of you would have a more exact number. The reason I ask is that due to the serial number, I suspect this was one of the last few to be turned out if the 2200 figure is correct.

    Second, does anyone know where I can find some factory literature on this rifle? I can remove the barrel easily, but I'm at a loss as to how to remove the bolt assembly for cleaning.

    Thank you all in advance!

    Wow, it would seem that I've somehow managed to stump THR!

    Not stumped but not here for a long time. I will PM you and I can send you a PDF of the only manual they produced.
