Things I liked: Same hole accuracy at 25 yards, good velocity, comfortable stock

Things I would have changed: Crap scope and mounts, no iron sights, loud twang from spring

What others should know: I've put 2500 rounds through mine. With Crosman Premier, I get same hole accuracy at 25 yards. This rifle is surprisingly accurate. I often pick off Tums tablets with ease. The scope is terrible on this rifle. I've used blue Loctite, torqued to spec and shimmed it. It still drifts steadily to the point that it requires re-adjusting after only 10 shots. It refuses to hold zero under any circumstances. If you want this rifle, you have to take the price of a new scope and mount into the final price. The value drops a bit, but it's a solid rifle. Knock $30 off and sell it without a scope and it's a steal.

Things I liked: Look scary and dangerous

Things I would have changed: Why do these even exist?

What others should know: These really solve a problem that doesn't exist. Adding the little point on the end is a marketing gimmick. Use a hollow point for good expansion and penetration, or use a wad cutter for 'destruction'. Both are cheaper and will probably be more consistent.

Things I liked: Buying in bulk is a good value Relatively accurate in pretty much all guns

Things I would have changed: Has some flashing still on the pellets Inconsistent sizes Package is inconvenient

What others should know: Pretty much all air guns will shoot these well. They aren't really anything special. They do have size inconsistencies. Some will fit really tight in the barrel, others will be really loose. There is flashing left on from the manufacturing process. However, they will shoot good groups. I can consistently hit dime size targets at 25 yards with these in my Gamo Cat. Would I use them in competition? No. But for backyard plinking, these are a great value!
