I simply can't understand the engineers of the rifle factories, why is each air rifle produced with fixed barrels?!?
probably a hangover from 10m, where you dont see the shift problems. Also most tend to have a chassis with a semi floating tube, rather than being clamped around the tube and using that for support.
