Hi all, I have two questions.
First is there anywhere on the web I can download the book for a Matchguns MGH1 air pistol.
I bought a used one but the book was missing.

Second, has anyone had trouble with pellets being crushed when loading. I was using DIABLO MATCH and found if I dropped one in gave it a push and closed the loading handle, then open again it had crushed the pellet, would not load all the way in, used Qiang ones and can open and close plenty of times and still perfect. Has others had this trouble and if so which pellets to avoid.
Thanks.

I was talking to an owner last week who has the same problem with some Hobby pellets.

I got the impression that he knew when a pellet was going to give trouble as it didn't feel properly seated in the rotating port. He then just pushed it in a bit more with a small tool.

It's obviously troublesome on the MGH1 as there's no easy way, e.g. knitting needle, of getting the pellet out without firing it.

Email match guns. They are very customer friendly. Steffano is the man to talk to. They take paypal payments.

Take a look at how the skirt is bent. I am thinking mine are bent when I open the breech without firing.

I've got a pair of fine tweezers and finishing nail to remove unshot pellets.

Try RWS Basic; they're not as fat as Hobby.

Ja, the Basics are trouble free.
