One of my friends had a couple of GP's from the very first ones to the latest versions and told me a lot about the various design issues (weak mounting of the breech block, barrel touching the air tank, built-in chrony problems etc) which resulted surprising POI-shifts and unexpected velocity changes. He had 3 or 4 of these rifles and built his own version after a lot of experimenting, also the factory took over most of his ideas in the late models but the rifle has never been so consistent as expected, so he finally ditched the lot and chose an Anschütz.
If you are interested in, I can ask him for more details.
