Things I liked:This rifle is a bargain for the price, magnum power, over 1200 fps with Gamo PBA ammunition. This rifle also has an easy cocking effort at only 30 lbs.If your used to shooting springers you can shoot all day and not tire your arm out . This rifle also features a beautifully stained European hardwood stock, groups covering a nickel at 15 yards. It's also a Beeman, great value overall. Things I would have changed:The rifle was made in China, Although the rifle performs probably just as well as some higher priced German and Italian models, the manufacturing in China lacks the precision in producing high quality all steel triggers and barrell construction. What others should know:This is an adult air rifle, being that the dimensions are probably to large for younger shooters, It is also deadly powerful shooting at 1000fps with lead pellets and 1250fps with PBA ammo, so be careful. This is a perfect hunting or plinking gun. However if you are going to hunt with this gun, shots should be kept within 30 yards for the best consistence and clean kills.
