Things I liked:Not much. Nice overall finish to the metal parts. Center Point scope is crystal clear and compliments the gun nicely. Sighting in the scope was a snap about 1" to the left and 3" low - but shot a NICE GROUP easily covered with a dime. This is with only 10 or so shots thru it - not broke in yet. Cocking is fairly easy and the gun is definately quite. Things I would have changed:Not too fond of the safety location - in front of the trigger - but I'll get used to it. What others should know:Nice that this is American Made. For the money I think this one is a WINNER. Made my first squirrel kill this morning off one of my bird feeders....about 30- 35 feet....he never knew what hit him....Shooting Crosman Premier Hollow Points. 22 caliber is the way to go for backyard pests control.....
Things I liked:I already own a S410 SL EXTRA FAC in 22cal but wanted a carbine. This carbine is absolutely fantastic - everything I hoped for.
Wood (walnut thumb hole) is outstanding. Metal to wood finishing is top notch as well. Attention to detail is the usual AA quality. Things I would have changed:THE SAFETY ON THE TRIGGER. Hello AA, is anybody there? Every AA owner I know with this safety hates it. Please change the location of the safety. What others should know:Much louder than my S410. Much louder...! To be "backyard friendly" you're gonna want a LDC. Nuts on a real shooter tho. Likes JSB's in 16 and 18gr.
Shooting JSB 18's @ 50% & 100% power chronys out at 718 & 887 respectfully. The 16 grainers @ 50 & 100% power, chrony at 753 & 910 respectfully.
Shooting the 18gr @ 50% power at 25 yds can easily
be covered with a dime.
Haven't tried longer ranges yet as mother nature is
into her "windy" faze. But if this carbine shoots
line my S410 EXTRA at distances - I'll be double
