Things I liked:The rifle is very quiet, and has great accuracy; I am hitting the same hole at 20 yards. I was pleasantly surprised by the 3-9x32 that came with it, it is not advertised here on the site, or was not when I bought it at least. After zeroing I have pegged a few starlings and squirrels no problem from 20-40 yards. you will not be disappointed with this purchase, I am sure of it. Things I would have changed:Trigger and rings, what else is new? What others should know:I got a leapers Golden Image 4x32 on mine because I did not know the centerpoint would be 3-9x32, if I could do it again I most likely would have just got the one piece mount and kept the stock scope to save a few bucks. 8.44 rounded is what you want like the reviewer above me said, I found Crow Magnums to be very accurate also.
