Realizing that I had never actually tried out all my spare magazines and having heard of some feeding issues I decided to dig out my 1903 and go through several loads with all three magazines. Thankfully they all worked seamlessly and it seems like the power in this S&T is up a bit from where it was. Still not equal to a JG Bar 10 which shoots at around 465 fps but up from the 320 or so that it was shooting. I didn't chrono it but estimate it's shooting at 340 or 345 or so with .20 gram. With full on hop up it's nice and straight out to 110 feet. None of these statistics are very impressive for a spring powerded, bolt action but better than I recall. Fun gun to plink with and really a gorgeous replica. Reloads of the clips themselves is awkward and changing mags via the trap door remains decidedly non tactical but for 22 shots or so you'll be in the Battle. Be sure of course when you change clips that you don't have any loose BBs still in the magwell that can cause mischief.
