Things I liked: Excellent build quality- the fit and finish is superb and evident from the moment you pick this rifle up. It has an extremely solid feel with excellent bluing. The trigger is of course wonderful. Easy to cock considering its power level. This rifle blew me away with its accuracy- it's fantastic! More accurate than any other brand I have owned and I have tried them all. I wish I had bought this gun years ago!
Things I would have changed: The only issue I have come across is the stock screws (all 4 of them) do come loose after a certain amount of shots even after using loc-tite on them. You would think after all these years building springers, they would have come up with a cure for this but not the case. Oh well, I can live with this as the rifle just shoots so darn good!
What others should know: I tried this rifle out in the field recently and I made up my mind I would be happy if I could hit certain objects at 55-60 yards. To my surprise, I was able to hit small balloons and other objects all the way out to 100 yards! I can not believe how accurate and flat shooting this rifle is and it hits with authority too! I am pleasantly surprised with this rifle and I don't see how you can go wrong with this well made German masterpiece. Do keep in mind this is not a lightweight rifle but it handles beautifully. The Gamo Gun Buddy Sling made it easy to carry in the field all day long! Shoots JSB Exacts and Crosman Premier (both 7.9 grains) extremely well but if I had to choose a pellet, I would choose the Crosman as they just seemed very consistent in terms of shooting small groups.
