Things I liked:Power! well balanced looks sharp, excelent workmenship for its price and very accurate great for target and small game. Things I would have changed:The rifle case could use a little improvement in order to store pellets and small equipment for changing barrels.
Gun barrel sleaves may offer better protection against nicks then small loop straps. What others should know:Being a previous owner of a Beeman R1, which was obviously more expensive,i find this Beeman Excel X2 Air Rifle to be very competative in its versitility (dual cal) and price range.
