Things I liked:By far, this air rifle commands respect. Friends who comment on it say its black finish and barrel silencer makes it look deadly. It REALLY does look like a high-tech sniper rifle, as one person put it. Things I would have changed:Add a better scope...put it where it belongs...in a higher class of off-the-shelf air rifle where it belongs. What others should know:It is very easy to break and cock. Unlike many others I have used! The sound gets quieter as it is used. Very well balanced and is joy to fire. The price is right...the fun is there...the quality is assured. Go for it and buy one for yourself!
