Things I liked:Great value. Very nice design and style. Very accurate too - my results at this point are only limited by my skill with it. Convenient size, smaller than most rifles. Adjustable stock. Punches clean holes in paper targets. I like the side lever action and find it nicer than a break barrel. Things I would have changed:Bolt could use a rounded end. The part that needs to be pushed to unlock side lever could be made more easy on the fingers. My rifle shoots a bit to the right even after adjusting the rear sight all the way to the left - I aim slightly to the left to compensate for now, but I will look next into modifying the rear sight to allow it to move further left. What others should know:For recreational target shooting, this is a great buy. There are spare parts included with the cleaning rod in a tiny package attached with a staple - don't make the mistake of throwing them away with the cleaning rod wrapping paper. This rifle has a lot of plastic, but don't let that deter you - it is very sturdy.
