Things I liked:This gun has a very nice appearance with its all wood stock. I like the design and feel of the underlever cocking mechanism - smooth and not too hard to cock. Things I would have changed:The trigger. Way too heavy for me. I found it very difficult to keep a tight group with such a heavy trigger pull. I'm used to Crossman pump air rifles, and this is my first springer, so maybe some of the problem is in my technique. I just know that I got way better accuracy with the Crossman gun I had as a kid than I get with this one. Also, the power was less than I expected. This gun doesn't seem much more powerfull than the pneumatic pump rifles I have shot in the past. 1000 ft per seems way overstated. What others should know:I wonder if I'm using the wrong pellets. Maybe I will try the Crow Magnum and see if that helps. My gun has a Centerpoint scope and maybe the scope is moving too, as this gun has a lot of recoil.
