That sounds backwards, you sure it ain't the other way around?
Makes it sound like you get better groups at longer range

No, by one hole groups I mean I can place all shots so that the hole just gets bigger and bigger.

So how's the durability? If you dropped it, would it snap in two? I hear an airsoft company makes them. I hope they're more durable than an airsoft gun.

Default Reg: GSG-5

I bought a GSG-5 from Sportsmans Warehouse. Fired about 500 round over two years. On the 4th time out with it, it started firing with an open bolt, sometime fullauto. I took it back to the store and they sent it back to American Tactical Imports for repairs two weeks after the warrenty had expired.
They want $169.00 to return my weapon, they said that I must have bought a used gun, because the barrel was to "thin" and had to be replaced. I don't think the gun is worth $100. If I pay for the repairs I'll have more than $675.00 into a piece of junk. They won't buy it back. Sportsmans Warehouse has been no help. I don't think I'll ever shop there again.

Anyone with any ideas as to how to get my weapon back without paying the full price?

Geez man, that sucks. Its horror stories like these that make me wanna just mod out a 1022. For the same price I could jazz up one of those. Sorry about your luck man, I have no ideas on how to get that thing back.

Thanks, maybe if the word gets out that they don't stand behind their product it may help change their mind.
