Common with all Falcon FN19 rifles:
I see alot of you are struggling with the bolt action and pellets.
Bolt action, basically there are two minor issues with the bolt action, which is down to owner setup and usage.
1, Sometimes people let a shot off with the bolt arm lifted, this causes a blow back, and usually hammers the bolt back onto the allen/O ring screw making the slot end "Burr up". This then causes a grating effect on the bolt action, and can premeturely damage the allen/o ring screw.
When the bolt slide end does "Burr up" just undo the Allen/o ring slide out the bolt and lighty file off the burr, clean off the filings and apply a light coating of Grease, very carefully put the allen/o ring screw back in.Do Not tighten fully as you will obviously lock up the bolt action. If you find the bolt slide rails are very sharp, then you need a new bolt, otherwise the bolt will wear out the o ring easily.
The Brass bolts last alot longer than the steel one. When ordering from falcon, get a few spare allen/o ring screws aswell.
2, I have tried many pellets in my FN19, and found Accupells the best without doubt, these rifles are very pellet specific,
I have dropped Bunnies up to 50 yards + with good clean head shots with accupells.
Hope this helps you.
