Hi pal. I shoot a ev2 mk3 at redferns ft club and I love mine to bits. I like the spirit level and wind indicator built into the gun and the adjustability of the stock. I bought it new from swillington in august 2009 and I have put about 4000 pellets through it. Would I buy it again? Yes is the answer. All the ft guns are good in my opinion and yes they all have there quirks. Definatly try to shoot one before you buy to make sure it's right for you!!!
