As Doc says the loading lever design is not good. It functions quite well for ramming a ball, but is not user friendly when breaking down the gun.
The quality of the gun and the way it shoots is well worth owning it. Hawg has no use for em, but others do. I'd keep it unless you need the $$. And personally, even if I needed the money, that's a keeper. Sell something else.
