Things I liked:This is a top quality gun at a more reasonable cost than most similar rifles. One of the few (if not the only) air rifles that are factory supplied with a walnut stock, and what gorgeous walnut it is too! It's also straight and cut from good dense heartwood, making the furniture worthy of a fine match firearm. Excellent rich and high polished blueing too, but WHAT a great shooter it is!! Fine trigger and finely accurate rifle worhty of any collection of fine arms, even where money is no impediment to quality. Chron's an honest 980 fps firing 7.0 grain hollowpoints. Love it! Things I would have changed:I have a personal dislike of muzzle brakes as cocking handles on airguns. They could leave it off and improve the looks of the gun, IMO.
