Things I liked:Ease of operation, price to performance is exceptional, styling, adjustable stock, trigger, unique, consistent, fun fun fun Things I would have changed:The "button" to release the side lever could use more rounded machining or a piece of plastic for comfort. The bolt could use a little brass ball on the end. Just the post digs in my fingers a little. On mine the finish on the barrel is slightly lighter toward the front sight. These are cosmetic and comfort issues only. What others should know:I couldn't put it down when I got home! My first 5 shots went wild, no idea where they hit but it wasn't my target. Calmed down, lightened up my grip and shot a ragged hole on my target from 30 feet. I'm a complete rookie to long guns. Strictly a handgun person. It is flying a little high and right. I will adjust the sights after I try a different pellet. Started off with Hobby's and they seem to be doing great. What thrilled me was the consistent groups I got on the first 100 pellets. No they weren't dead center. But the consistency is there telling me this will be very accurate when I get it sighted properly.
For the price I'm not sure what on the market is even close. Styling is unique and it's super easy to operate. I opted for the single shot for several reasons. No lost clips, no buying clips to replace lost clips, over time I'll get just as much shooting done as I'm not loading clips, no accidental unloaded firings, and it's a nice safety with kids using it as well. Less moving parts is also a bonus. Loading 1 by 1 is not at all a challenge and only takes a few seconds from a belted pouch.
On a side note I picked up my order from PA. While I was waiting for them to bring it up to me I had a very nice conversation with the owner. Commented on the izh 60/61 and what it meant to him. Super nice individual and PA has a customer for life. Next up is the izh 53m! Thank you Mr. Ungier for your hospitality.
