most (of the few that have entered this country in significant numbers) were well made, though I seem to recall one model that didn't have a great rep.
One of the reviews said the .22 would easily hold a tight group over two magazines full, so 26 shots seems like the minimum shots per fill at US spec levels. That's what you get with the combination of highish output, a smallish, low pressure reservoir, and no reg. One of the Brit testers got 140 shots at 10.5 ft/lbs, so it probably would give you a hundred shots per fill at 12 ft/lb.
The upside of that is that pumping back to full would be easy and quick, with no need to rest the pump.
I may just sell one of my M-rods and replace it with the Orion, it sounds like a much better match to my preferences in a gun.
Personally, I wish there were more guns on the market specd like this. Lower fill pressure, so the reservoir doesn't need to be as strong(heavy)give up a dozen shots per fill in return for a shorter reservoir and handier gun, no reg, so simpler and more reliable,and put the money into a great barrel.
