Things I liked:The looks [since it is basically a 760 in fancy dress, you should definitely shop for something else if you don't like the looks... ;) ]
The balance [it's pretty light, so balance is an easily overlooked essential.]
It comes with a useful set of basic sights. [But much better than the usual *extremely* rudimentary ones you'd expect of airguns in this price range.] Things I would have changed:Save the expense on molding in useless frippery like Allen bolt heads [& then hold the thing together w/ a bazillion tiny Phillips head screws waiting to strip out?], non-functional magazines [at least mold in a sliding cover or a rubber plug on the bottom so the space can be used] and non-functioning adjustable cheek rests in favor of spending a little more on useful items [like a self-indexing pellet magazine so that the loading cycle is sped up by about 3x.] What others should know:Charging this puppy w/ air is LOUD! The combination of a fairly thin plastic pump handle and a mostly-hollow forestock leads to truly impressive WHACKING sounds when pumping up this bad boy. I'm still working on how to reduce the noise level some [I'm not expecting silence, esp. not at this price point!] but for now, you'll want to wear ear plugs when shooting this, not for the muzzle blast, but to protect your hearing from the constant clacking of the recharge cycle...
Things I liked:Pyramyd's price is good. Things I would have changed:Crosman should supply AT LEAST three of these w/ each gun, not just one. What others should know:Realistically, these things should sell for about a nickel apiece. But they don't. Crosman deliver *one* with the rifles it sells that require one in order to shoot either pellets or BBs [if the airgun is so capable.] With out it, there's a hole in the side of the action that's too small to fit your fingers in to load thru, but large enough for the ammo to fall out. Since 2 is one & one is none, Crosman essentially gives you the one that's none, and you MUST buy a pack of these to have spare on hand, or you will regret it!
