What is the cocking effort? I sometimes do a lot of shooting per session.
35 to 40 pounds
Is the barrel brass?
No, it's steel.
How do you maintain it?
Here's a link for the manual on pyramyd: http://cdn.pyramydair.com/site/manuals/break_barrel_air_rifles_manual_2010_en.pdf
Does this gun have the scope mount retainer pin hole in the barrel to keep the scope from moving back after shooting ?
how loud is the gun
I have since shot some targets with the neighbors outside. They were 150 ft away and were not bothered at all. Great rifle.
I own the Hatsan 95 .177 too and have shot it at point blank range next to my iPad at about three inches. Using a decibel app I consistently get 90db. I have also stood on my neighbors patio 100 feet away as a friend fired it to give it a "listen" test. It sounded like some one hit a 2x4 with a hammer with a medium blow.
We do not have a decible rating on the 95 but I would say it is a bit louder. If you have neighbors close by or need something quieter, look at the model 85 sniper.
