Response to what happened to the 100 dollar pcp buzzz from 2015 ??

Had an early one and the design had me kind of excited about the possibility of converting it to PCP, it would certainly be easier and cleaner than converting a QB. But after playing with it for awhile, I came to the conclusion that the receiver was just WAY too soft, I don't know what aluminum alloy they used, but I suspected recycled pop cans. Add in the fine threads and a steel tube, and it just seemed like a recipe for disaster. Decided to stick to QB's, and I think that was the right decision. Nice little rifle otherwise, and a nice modernization of the QB design, but marred by some bad engineering choices. Now, if they'd used 7075 for the receiver, well, look out world happy.gif!
