Things I liked:This is an inexpensive Nitro Piston air rifle that gets you shooting and hunting without the worry of cold weather or spring tension. The thumb-hole stock feels great and provides more stability with every shot. It is a great hunting rifle. Things I would have changed:Better quality trigger would definitely make this gun perform superbly better. What others should know:The Scope it comes with should be replaced with something more powerful since this gun can deliver much more power and accuracy. The trigger should be either tuned or a new one should be purchased.
Things I liked:I love the weight and look of the gun. Easy to carry when hunting. Things I would have changed:Include a 4-12X40AO scope
What others should know:I thought from other reviews that this gun would be accurate and powerful but I was wrong. The gun will shoot about 5 inches high and then shoot lower and lower till its shooting 5 inches low from the aim point so my groups and about an 8 to 10 inch group and 20 yards. I cannot sight the gun in because it is not consistent enough for the pellets to group at all. I believe that after a few shots the gun begins to lose power with every shot which is why the shots begin to hit the ground. This gun is also very loud. Although it says it is quiet, it is not. My other air rifles that do not have any type of noise dampening system on them are quieter than this gun and I am getting complaints by the neighbors with this gun and I have never got any complaints for years with my other guns.
Things I liked:I have own the .177 and .22 models and both of them are very accurate and powerful. The .22 I just got had a bent barrel so I will be requesting a new one but even with the bent barrel, the gun was consistently accurate at 20 and 25 yards. I love the weight, feel, and color of the gun. Things I would have changed:obviously I would opt for a bigger scope but to keep the price lower, the scope works. What others should know:The gun is louder than many other springers but if you do not mind a louder cracking noise, then this gun works well.
