I had my Ripley Rifles XL9 serviced a few months ago, following the service nine shots were fired at a piece of card (with the rifle action clamped). The result is below; a pellet is a friction fit in the shot hole produced. For myself, the XL9 is a superb rifle in every respect, it doesn't produce fliers, probably due to precision pellet sizing in the chamber. The mag is fixed, made from stainless steel and matched to the chamber, there is no probe O ring.
I am fortunate to own an XL1 and an AR5S in FAC, my son has an AR5S also. I've owned my XL9 for twelve years, never once have I been disappointed with it. I get 200 consistent competition accuracy shots from a sub 300 BAR fill, lock time is extremely fast. They are fine rifles. ;)
