Things I liked:Two calibers, .177 for 10 meter target practice, .22 for plinking shooting tin cans etc. Easy to change barrels, need an allen wrench (included) to swap the barrels, and you also need to sight in the rifle after swapping barrels, Also you need to make sure the O-ring for the breach, is seated correctly before use.
I have to tighten the screw that locks the barrels in place very hard, and sometimes re tighten it after a few shots. But after re tightening the screw, it doesn't loosen again.
I find the .177 barrel likes heavy pellets, lighter pellets tend to spread.
In .22 it seems to prefer lighter pellets.
I love the trigger, a little rough straight out of the box, but after polishing a few rough surfaces, oiling and adjusting it, it's become VERY nice. Things I would have changed:- I would find a better way to lock the barrel in place, the existing screw tends to loosen during the first 3-4 shots after swapping barrels.
- Turning the safety off, and then on again, before shooting, will make the trigger very unpredictable. What others should know:I like it, it's very accurate, I often have hole in hole series with it. Considering the price, and what you get, it's like two good rifles in one.
The bluing on my rifle seem to be very sensitive to fingerprints, and tend to rust/corrode if I don't use some light oil/gun oil on it after every other use.
Again, check the breech o-ring after changing the barrels, mine came with a spare o-ring included. I use some silicone grease to make sure it stays in it's seat.
Things I liked:- Lead free
- High Speed
- Good Penetration
- Easy to load.
- Difficult/almost impossible to damage during handling or loading, very tough. Things I would have changed:Maybe make a heavier version ? What others should know:These pellets fills the rifling on my Beeman RS2 with plastic residue. After using these, I have to clean the barrel thoroughly, with gun cleaner, and cleaning pellets + cleaning rod, for a good 5-10 minutes to remove all the plastic residue that has "melted" itself into the rifling groves of the barrel. I'm not sure if this happens on all guns. But it happens to both my Beeman RS2 and my Crosman .177 "357" revolver.
- Regular lead pellets shot without removing the plastic residue makes my guns fire very inaccurate.
- When you shoot them, it smells like burned plastic. <--- I like that smell...
Things I liked:- Accurate
- Consistent weight and shape, I have gone through two boxes and no defective ones yet.
- Tight lid for the box, does not come of that easy.
- Leaves a wad cutter like hole in the targets with my Beeman RS2 and my Crossman 357w, a perfect circle, no tearing, In fact, I think the holes are a little crisper than with my normal wad cutters, probably because these do not wobble. Things I would have changed:-Nothing
What others should know:- Works GREAT with my Crossman 357w pistol, really accurate, great speed, the best round I have tried for this gun, excellent fit in the magazine.
- Works Great with my Beeman RS2 air rifle, accurate, fits really snuggly in the barrel, one of the best rounds I have tried for it.
- Does not work with my Baretta FS92 pistol - Jams up, even when the round balls are pushed a long way into the magazine. I don't know why, as they fit good and tight in the magazine, normal wad cutters works great.
