What Folks are Saying about Flying Dragon

"I just got my XS-28, .25 cal, today. It's a beautiful piece, can't wait to try it out, but I don't have a single pellet in the house that fits it. This is my fourth purchase from Mike, I wish everyone gave his kind of service." - Larry

"After speaking with Mike Melick at Flying Dragon I ordered a B26-2 with low comb and lube. The gun arrived today. I'm just plum tickled. The gun has a very nice stock and cocks easier than any adult rifle that I have handled. The action is super smooth and the trigger is the best of any of my guns including my RWS 34P."

"Mike Melick's B25 line are excellent clones of the RWS34. They are tough, powerful, accurate and reliable. Best of all is the price - with a super tuneup from Mike thrown in. He is a super nice guy and one of the most sought after tuners out there."
