Things I liked:This is an upgrade from Crosman 760, so know that I do not have a lot of experience. I selected this gun because of it's weight, moderate level of power, and ease of cocking. I have 2 teen boys and live in suburb on 5 acres, so didn't want anything too strong. Right out of box, very first shot I hit can at 25 yds w/o siting scope. Gun is relatively light and easy to cock. Fit and finish are excellent. It feels very well put together. The scope, based on my experience, is pretty good. The shooting and handling of this gun is just great. Well made, well balanced gun.
Things I would have changed:Based on our needs and use, there is nothing I would change. Being a .177 a 800FPS, it won't drop a raccoon in its tracks, but it takes care of chipmunks and squirrels that are over-running us. Most air rifles are heavier and this being lighter enables you to get it on target and to hold it there longer.
What others should know:This is a fantastic gun. I will be interested to hear if others are as impressed with it as my family and I are. I am going to order a .22 from Pyramyd soon and can use this as a basis of comparison. I am writing this now due to the X5 not having any reviews and it certainly deserves consideration. No regrets here. Two big thumbs up from this novice.

Things I liked:Light, easy to cock & all the other advantages of a gas piston.
Things I would have changed:The safety is too close to the trigger. My son commented "you need to carry a screw driver around with you to pry the safety away from the trigger". This is a safety issue in itself; your finger is putting pressure on the trigger in order to release the safety. After 25 or so shots, wiggling your finger into the narrow space chafed my finger.
What others should know:On one hand, the low velocity Titan is a sensible rifle: light, low-powered gas piston, auto-safety. This combination is ideal for women or young teens who have trouble cocking more the powerful, heavier weapons. We liked the gun for these reasons, but the safety was a deal-killer. You can see the problem if you look at the Titan pics. I also have the Remington NPSS and this safety is correctly designed. Thanks for allowing the return, Pyramyd!
