Things I liked:Love just about everything about this airgun. The size, weight, and accuracy are perfect for a "take anywhere" plinker. Things I would have changed:The stock sights are the only weak point. The front can rotate on you and change the windage.
Most people will add a steel breach and scope it, so that's not much of a factor.
I'm going to make some quality iron sights for mine on my mill. It just seems more appropriate to have irons on such a small, light gun. What others should know:Out to 25 yards my gun will keep all it shots inside a nickle. What more do you want from a $75 airgun?
Things I liked:Overall presentation was very nice. I was impressed with the quality of the materials and finish. Things I would have changed:The breach had some issues and I couldn't get pellets into the "chamber". The ones that did shot terribly at 9 yards.
I went online and found out that this is common on these guns and people have just been polishing the burrs off of the chamber mouth.
It also looked like my barrel was bent when you looked down the tube from the rear.
My other spring gun doesn't have these issues, and the Stoeger was sent back for a different product.
I don't want to have to "fix" a $180 airgun out of the box. What others should know:I will not be buying another Stoeger airgun.
The concept was appealing, but the execution was poor.
