Nice looking gun, very simple loading shuttle with a lovely slick bolt, uncannily accurate.
BUILD QUALITY!! very poor quality control, nearly all PCP air rifles are this accurate.. and are a lot more solid.
I really hate to write this review as a negative one, because the gemini has everything it needs to be a seriously good rifle - it is light, accurate, and very simple to load and fire.
Its one problem (and it's a big one), is that every logun rifle i have seen seems to have been built on a Friday afternoon. 3 of my shooting buddies use gemini's, and they have ALL had trouble.
The catalogue of problems include :- loose bolts and screws, (in one case, falling out into the rifles mechanism), barrels working loose, airleaks, one leaked from the integral gauge, another discharged itself over night and one was delivered from new with a big gap between the woodwork and the air bottle (which was sent back and replaced, the new one has been ok so far..).
Logun really need to sort out their quality control, but until they do, they will continue to lose customers, disillusioned and disappointed. It's a shame, because on looks alone they are great. Very classy woodwork and the bolt feels like it runs in silk.. and when the barrel fixing screws don't work loose they are as accurate as anyone this side of the world field target championship will need.
on the strength of what i have seen about loguns, i went out and bought an Air Arms S410, and haven't looked back. Try one..
