Things I liked: Boy this may be the best plinker ever. I have always loved my RWS 34 for its accuracy and quality feel but boy is it heavy and large to carry around. I really have not shot it that much over the years. The R7 is just a lot of fun to handle and shoot. I put a Leapers 4 power Bug Buster scope on it and that increased the fun factor also. That scope will focus down to 3 yards so you can use it indoors as well as out. This R7 is a shooter !! Very accurate ! I love it.
Things I would have changed: Nothing.
What others should know: You can buy a sling swivel set that mounts to a .177 barrel and to the butt of the rifle. A sling is nice for extra stability for some shots and for carrying of course.
