Yes Mr.BCC your accuracy should be a lot better but I would give it the benfit of the doubt until I had it to the range a few times. You may need to adjust to the gun as well. I had to when I got my frist poly gun. The gun shot fine but I couldn't hit a barn door at ten paces. After about a half dozen trips to the range things started to jell. I like the gun fairly well now. Good luck.
