Things I liked:Very nice sight picture. Fun to shoot. No extra expense buying CO2, but cocking it for every shot is a trade off. Overall I am glad I bought one. Things I would have changed:Somewhat difficult to load with a pellet. (I need thinner fingers maybe?) What others should know:It seems to be more accurate firing pellets than BBs. Mine shoots high with BBs. I have to aim about 6 inches below the target to hit. With pellets it is nearly correct. The spring action is tough to cock. Younger shooters may find it difficult.
Things I liked:The accuracy is unbelievable. I shot seven perfect bullseyes out of the first seven shots straight out of the box without any sight adjustment. Things I would have changed:You are kidding right? It was a great little gun back in the 60's when I was growing up. It is still great in the 21st century. Don't change a thing! What others should know:It does take some effort to pump this one up. That is something to keep in mind with younger shooters.
Things I liked:Accuracy is good with Crosman pellets. Twelve shots is great. Things I would have changed:None What others should know:WARNING. This thing is way too much fun to shoot. If the grandkids find out about this I will never be able to afford the pellets and CO2.
