    I had a thread opened here about my experiences with the new Hellcat II. Looks like my thread disappeared but as promised I have returned with an update.

    The original barrel was defective with a pitted finish and feedramp cut to short. (Pictures were in my original thread).

    Since I have contacted I.O. and received a new barrel, stainless steel this time. Upon inspection it looked good. Went to shoot the gun today and I still have problems chambering a round, would take 3-5 times before I got one chambered. All kinds of jams when I was able to shoot it, never made it past 2 shots in a row before it jammed in one way or another. The few shots I did get off I could not hit paper at 10 yards. I found it was shooting about a foot to the left.

    Its a joke of a gun and was unuseable from the factory.
    It is being returned to buds for a refund.

    I saw one guy at the range with one. He didn't shoot it since I was there because the ejector just broke!

    I checked a couple that I had in stock after reading your thread. I doubt if there will be another one in my shop. Not impressed at all.:barf:

    Probably a good idea! After looking into it more looks like a large % of people who bought these have issues of all kinds.
