How do you guys like the polymer covered barrels on the new Gamos....

Do you like the newer style breech lock-up, with the cross-pin rather than the angled detent catch? Reason I ask is after a trip to Gander Mtn. recently, I stopped to check out some of the new Gamos and wasn't very impressed with the amount of slop I felt at the barrel pivot. Seems the breech block is also covered with the polymer plastic. I originally thought it was only on the barrel. Doesn't seem like plastic would provide enough firmness in the pivot area of the breech for a good consistent lock-up. Now, this did happen to be on one of the display models for anyone to pick up and play around with, so maybe it was just a little ragged out from abuse. I do kinda like the fluted barrel look, even though it is plastic. TIA for opinions.
