    Things I liked:Bought two of these (my first one was stolen) in .22 caliber. This gun has a nice quality feel to it when you pick it up and handle it - much better than most guns in this price range. It is a bit long, but the gun balances well and the length aids in using open sights. I used it for a while with the stock sights, which worked very well, but I wanted to scope it. Bought a Centerpoint 3-9x50 Adventure and B-square one-piece, high-profile mount. The mount had to be installed "backwards" due to placement of the stop hole on the scope rail - but I have not had any problems with slippage after 500 rounds. I added a custom muzzlebreak to cover the ugly grooves left behind after removing the front sight - newer models will have a factory muzzlebreak option. It looks very cool, and for me anyway, that is an important factor when selecting a gun (my Ruger .22 WMR Single Six in stainless always gets complements at the range). I would not consider myself a competitive shooter by any means, but I have no problem dropping squirrels on thin branches from 25 yards with a single shot. I use RWS Superdomes and Benjamin Diabolos (14.3gr), which usually pass cleanly through a squirrel at 20 yards - know your backstop!
    Things I would have changed:The safety mechanism is not the best design - about half the time, I disengage it unintentionally; your index finger tends to push it as a result of the natural hand position when holding the stock during cocking. It also seems to be the lowest quality item on the gun.
    What others should know:This may not be have the exclusivity appeal of some of the other high end air rifles - but this gun definately delivers performance where it counts - power, accuracy, good looks and workmanship.
