Things I liked:Sturdy feel, very quiet. Trigger is amazing, extremely accurate. Nice finish. No recoil. Did I mention accurate. Things I would have changed:I don't like having to cock the gun to remove the magazine. I feel like i should pull the trigger to release the air before storing the gun. I don't mind the safety so much, it is one way to tell if the weapon is loaded. This is my first air gun and I would like better instructions. What others should know:With the hawke 3-12x44 this is a tack driver. I've been shooting a .22 cal big boy (22grain) hollow point. There have been no wounded varmints! And i havent missed one yet. This is a real pleasure to shoot.
