Things I liked:Light weight, easy to cock, good looking rifle Things I would have changed:Lighter trigger, lower price What others should know:Much louder than anticipated and not as accurate as I had hoped. I have shot 300 or so rounds and cleaned it a couple of times which helped the accuracy. I have used Crosman and Benjamin hollow points. It seems more accurate with Crosman pellets. My Crosman Optimus rifle is much more quiet and more accurate. I am hoping it will get better. It is a really good looking rifle and light. I have not had a problem with the scope. Overall I am satisfied but I think it is about $60 too high. Pyramydair has great service. I would not buy from any other company.
Things I liked:Accuracy, light trigger, light weight, 5 shot clip, easy to cock
Things I would have changed:Add a safety What others should know:This is a great gun. It is very accurate. I have used several different pellets and they all are accurate in this rifle. I have only used open sights at short distances. For target practice you can't beat the accuracy and price.
Things I liked:It's light and easy to cock. It also looks good. This rifle is much more accurate than I expected for its price. I used several different pellets at 10 yards and had a half inch group. I also like the stock. Things I would have changed: I changed the scope out immediately and it made a lot of difference in the accuracy. It is actually kind of hard to load because of the design, but not too bad. What others should know:The trigger is heavy however I think it actually made me more aware of my technique and made me shoot more accurately. This is a very fun gun to shoot and very accurate. Just be ready to use a different scope.
Things I liked:It feels and looks like a much more expensive rifle than it is. I like the safety. The gun is easy to cock. It is well balanced. So far I am using the open sights and they work well. It is accurate out of the box. So far I have shot about 200 rounds indoors. It does not seem to be loud. It has plenty of power for target shooting. Things I would have changed:I can't think of anything I would change except maybe a .22 version. What others should know:In my opinion this gun could be used for young shooters to older ones because of the light cocking but still plenty of power. It is a very good value. I enjoy shooting this one as well or more than some of my more expensive guns.
Things I liked:Price and accuracy. Things I would have changed:Nothing really. Maybe a screw on lid. What others should know:This is an accurate pellet for the price. I have use it in several rifles and it's accurate in all of them. I have not used it in any magnum type rifles. My higher powered rifles are .22's.
Things I liked:I like the power and accuracy. I also enjoy the wood stock. I have the .22 version. I also like the scope with the Weaver rail. Things I would have changed:The trigger is spongy and very average at best. Make the rifle a little bit lighter. What others should know:This rifle is more quiet than my Gamo Bone Collector IGT but not as quiet as my Crosman Optimus. It is a little on the heavy side. Once this rifle was broken in
I installed a well known after market trigger and it became very, very accurate. It is more accurate than my Bone Collector but not quite as comfortable to shoot because of the weight. This is a very nice rifle and the price is good. You get a lot for your money with this rifle. You will enjoy this rifle more with the after market trigger. It's a 5 with the after market trigger and a 4-4.5 with the factory trigger.
Things I liked:Nice trigger. I haven't adjusted it at all from the factory setting. Very good accuracy out of the box. I also like the wood stock and the power. I also like the automatic safety. I have the .22 version. Things I would have changed:It is fairly difficult to cock and has a lot of recoil. The cocking is not very smooth. What others should know:The hinge piece underneath the barrel seems lose and rattles a little bit. This doesn't seem to affect the accuracy or power. I don't know if this is normal for the Hatsan 95 or just my rifle. I wa very surprised how accurate it is and the trigger is very consistent and light. The scope is not great but it is fine for my use. The rifle is good looking. I used the open sights and they work well. This is an adult gun because of the recoil and the cocking effort. Comparing the Nitro Venom to the Hatsan 95 is a close call. The 95 has a much better trigger but harder to cock. The NV is much smoother, quieter, and the scope is better. You can't go wrong with either, but I would lean towards the Nitro Venom.
Things I liked:Consistent and good price Things I would have changed:Nothing What others should know:I have only spring and gas piston rifles. These pellets are the most consistent that I have used. If I could use only one brand of pellet it would be these. They perform very well for the cost.
Things I liked:Good power and quiet. I like the safety. Things I would have changed:The trigger is not good. Make the pistol lighter. What others should know:This pistol is difficult to cock. It is very quiet, but not that accurate. I've tried several types of pellets from about 10 meters and have not had much success with consistent accuracy. Hopefully, the accuracy will get better as it breaks in. I think the hard trigger pull affects the accuracy. The gun is a little too heavy also. I do like the nitro piston. For the same money I would choose Izh pistol over the Benjamin. The izh is easier to cock, lighter, has a better trigger, and more accurate. I don't mind sacrificing power for accuracy. They both are very quiet.
Things I liked:Light, easy to cock, good trigger, wood stock-nice checkering, open sights, accuracy. Things I would have changed:Nothing. It is absolutely perfect for the type shooter it is designed for. What others should know:This little rifle reminds me of the older model Savage Cub .22 rimfire. It appears to be the exact dimensions. The LOP is 12". I'm an adult and it is very fun to shoot for me. This one is perfect for a child or smaller person. It is very light and a breeze to cock. It took me 3 shots to adjust the open sights for 10 meters. It is surprisingly accurate. I tried all cheap pellets and they all grouped well. I used Tech Force HP, Beeman Coated HP, Crosman, Pointed, Crosman Premier HP, and Crosman Wadcutters. I got the best group with the Wadcutters. That was my last round of shooting 7 shot groups, so I may have just gotten more used to the gun. I just got the gun from PA today. This is not a hunting type gun, but a great one for target shooting. I also have two Stoeger X5's one for scope shooting and one for open sight shooting. Those are great guns too in the same class. The Little Cat is much lighter, shorter, and less LOP than the X5. The open sights work very well. When you cock the rifle the design of the breach slightly protrudes making it very easy to load pellets. I don't have that design on any other break barrels that I own. I highly recommend this gun especially for young shooters. I'm over 6' and it is fun for me too.
Things I liked:I like the light weight. The scope is good. It is easy to cock. It hasn't really nice sound when cocking the rifle. More of what a high cost springer sounds like. The stock is nice. I like the relative short length of the rifle and the LOP is good for an adult. Things I would have changed:Nothing so far. What others should know:I shot the rifle with several lower cost pellets of all shapes and weight. It shot pretty well with all of them. It was pretty accurate out of the box. I have only shot about 75 rounds so far, but I feel like it will be really accurate when broken in. Again, the scope is really good. For the price I will give it 5 stars when considering what you get for the money. Not a hunting rifle-very little recoil.
Things I liked:Very nice quality. Things I would have changed:Nothing. What others should know:I purchased two of these. I am mainly a target shooter and this scope is perfect for my use. I think the price is good for the quality. I will buying more of these scopes for other guns. Very nice.
Things I liked:Screw on lid. Things I would have changed:Cheaper price. What others should know:These pellets seem relatively good in all of the rifles ii have tested them in, but there is always another brand that seems to out perform these in any particular gun I use. I agree with the one review that these pellets look the Crosman Premier pellets. I will say these are average pellets and your money is more well spent for Crosman HP, Crosman Ultra Magnum, Benjamin HP, or the JSB Exacts.
Things I liked:Good price. Screw on lid. Things I would have changed:Nothing. What others should know:Shoots very accurately in the Crosman Nitro Venom. I have both the .177 and the .22 versions of the Nitro Venom. This pellet also comes in both calibers. It is more accurate for me in the .177.
