Things I liked:I find this carbine very accurate with several brands of pellets. My favorites are the Crosman hollow points. My stock was beautiful and arrived without a nick or scratch... impeccable. The scope included goes well and does not leave you feeling like you need to upgrade. Its great that Crosman has included an extra set of high rings in case the lower ones are too difficult for some people to load pellets or bring the scope to the proper eye level. I did not have this problem and am currently using the rings included with the scope. Things I would have changed:nothing. What others should know:Let me start off by saying that i almost didn't get this gun due to some lackluster reviews on the accuracy and the quality of the stock. Glad it was the reviews that were inaccurate rather than the 2250XE. I took the gun to our range and had the scope dialed in within ten shots. After that 25 yard shots off of a rest will be in the red to the point of boredom. For a real challenge you need to shoot without a rest. If you are an Olympic match shooter perhaps you should move on but for the rest of humanity this gun is nothing but fun son!
