Things I liked:I like that this gun has a wood stock. The scope is pretty good, however, it should have a bigger objective. It is fairly easy to cock, and pretty quiet. It does have ambidextrous safety and cheekpieces, which is a plus for lefties. This rifle is very accurate, shooting a 1/2 in. group at 50 yds. This gun doesn't have much external plastic, only the trigger guard and muzzlebrake. Things I would have changed:The trigger guard should be made of metal. I like the coating on the muzzlebrake because it prevents blisters. The scope should have a bigger objective, maybe 40mm. The trigger isn't very good, not a very clean break. What others should know:The first 100 shots are sometimes inaccurate. Be sure to clean this gun before you shoot it! the barrel, internally and externally, was very dirty on mine. My hands were black after handling it for the first time. When you open up the crosman box the gun is in, be sure to find the scope accesories, the allen wrench supplied is the only one that I could find that fit the scope mount screws snuggly.
