Things I liked:speed and power. Things I would have changed:colors. black absorbs too much heat from sunlight. price. ouch. What others should know:why on Earth is there a flash suppressor on this? IT'S AN AIR GUN! AIR being the key word. There is no flash.
Things I liked:Great pellet shape, works great in break barrels or pistols with magazines.
Things I would have changed:Needs a screw-top tin, and a note on the packaging that these suck in bolt-action airguns. The price for this ammo is ridiculous considering the actual weight of the pellet, and the fact that the lead is quite impure. What others should know:I paid $7 for a 500 round tin of these at Big 5, these are a bad choice for bolt-action guns (the semi-wadcutter face loves to catch on anything, and is prone to flipping over, causing the round to be loaded backwards...), and the lid on the tin loves fall off when you don't want it to.
Things I liked:Price, accuracy, feeling in hands, fast shipping, comfy stock, and the Nitro piston make it a deal. Things I would have changed:Properly crown the loading port.
Reinforce the cocking lever (splays apart after a few thousand rounds).
Better scope (3-9x32mm came with G1 Extreme for $99).
Make it perform as well as the numbers tout.
Claims 950 fps with PBA, and 800 with lead, but 650-750 is closer to muzzle velocity with lead pellets.
Hollowed tail of stock for storage
Custom fit rubber recoil buffer for myself
Transplanted scope and mount (3-9x32mm with one piece mount)
Move muzzle brake forward
Stuff to do still:
Install GRT-III trigger
Moly. lube contact points What others should know:Loud for a few shots, broke in after 100 downrange, settled down around 200, and sighted in so easily. Nitro piston is consistent, easy to cock, and rather quiet compared to the G1.
This rifle can drive tacks when you have it figured out, and it sends lead out with lethal velocity.
Mine has eaten through a tin of 500 Crosman Premier Hollowpoints quite happily, and I'm probably opening the second one in a day or two.
