Things I liked:I bought this gun for my 11 year old who is shorter then most. He has no trouble with it. I on the other hand had the time of my life while helping to break it in. So much more fun then my magnums! I had forgotten what air gunning was all about. In no time at all you get used to the funky two bladded trigger and fall in love with it. At first I thought I wouldn't like the primative but rugged rear sight but after adjusting the windage, I was able to set a soda can out on the snowey up hill slope outside the house at my 25 yard marker and push it up hill, inch by inch, to my 40 yard marker. I could have gotten it to the 50 bit their was just nothing left of the can and I was cold. So the sights work great and they will last through the next generation of users of this gun. Cocking is very easy. The blond stock is great. No need to tune this solid little gun. It has impressive accuracy. What would a scope do? Things I would have changed:My sight will not give me a POI closer then 25 yards (using 7.0 gr. RWS Basics) but some minor surgery on it will fix that if I get around to it. What others should know:After 250 rounds through it a string of 20 shots yielded 593 FPS using RWS Basics. After 400 rounds a 20 shot string yielded 599.5 FPS (so close!). I have not tested any other pellets yet. When and if the big brother version to this rifle comes out I will be the first in line. Oh yes, It will shoot clean through a soup can.
