Things I liked:I like how they took the tactical look and feel off of a "toy" platform and put it on an air rifle that can actually take down medium sized pests. I bought this gun 4 days ago and shoots fine. Takes a lot of birds and a few squirrels. Things I would have changed:I would improve the muzzle break to one that actually improves noise reduction. Current stock is just a price of plastic for leverage apon breaking the barrel. Another thing, removable iron sights. Or a better scope. When there's a squirrel you gotta shoot fast it's a pain to aim through the scope when your only 10 yards away. Adjustable buttstock would also be a huge seller on this gun. More versatile for smaller shooters and also bigger shooters. What others should know:Over all this gun is great. Easy to sight in, shoots great groupings. At 20 yards I was getting a 3 inch grouping. Plenty of power to take down anything from small pest birds to probably a racoon with right shot placement. Crosman sold me on this gun with the over tactical look and feel but with the power of a precision air gun. Don't be fooled by its looks! It is not a toy! The pricing is also a plus. My local sporting goods store did not have the nitro piston version but for the price I paid ($120) was well worth it.
