Things I liked:The looks, the grey synthetic stock looks like much more higher quality than the synthetic stock of the gamo shadow 1000.
The grips, Gamo stayed true to the viper-snake thing. The grips arent checkered, theyre shaped like snake-skin.
Bull Barrel: This thing feels much better in your hand when you cock it, and it balances the gun, which I believe reduces the recoil. Things I would have changed:I would make the cheekpiece leather What others should know:The scope doesn't seem to hold its zero very well, and the cocking effort gets heavier in about halfway through the cocking, but gets light as it approaches the end.
