I got it second hand so had a service as a precaution which took 2 days and £50 and it came back with a load of internals upgraded to later designs. Shaun is one of the nicest people you could meet, takes absolute pride in his work and really knows what he's doing. They do go wrong now and again, usually due to an o ring going hard, but I see more problems with Steyrs, Daystates and FTP's.
Monkey is correct about the ease of servicing them and that Shaun is keen for us to do our own maintenance, if someone genuinely has an unreliable ISP the chances are they took it apart themselves using mole grips and a hammer in a box full of sand and put it back together using the cheapest o rings they could find on ebay.
Not sure what comes in the current standard package but the air receiver and barrel shroud are both titanium making the rifle very light at the front. You should be able to choose what colour anodising you want on the alloy and whether you want the titanium polished or blasted.
Great accurate post probably wasted on tyre kickers. If your rifle has a problem you can't fix Shaun is the most helpful knowledgeable bloke on the planet, no yard is too far.
Rick Ardern super low mounts ISP MK3 pellet launching platforms and Sightron 10 x 42mm telescopic sights.
Because it is not about how, but how many.
