Things I liked:I bought this pistol for my wife to practice at home. She has a 38 that is almost identical in weight and even the trigger is about the same. It is just as accurate and since it is she can practice at home inexpensively, quietly and without going to the range 30 miles away. Things I would have changed:I would set it up so .177 pellets would fit in the nose of the "bullets" instead of BB'S. Maybe in a newer revision.
Things I liked:No plastic. It is more accurate than most shooters. Reasonable scope not quite powerful enough for my eyes. Great exercise for my biceps and chest muscles (cocking effort). Easy to load with pellet pen. Things I would have changed:Would rather have peep sight but just my personal preference What others should know:I read all the reviews before buying this gun in .22 cal. I bought it even with all the scope complaints. My personal feeling is the scope is OK if you bother to set up correctly. I stated I needed a more powerful scope only because my eyesight is poor. I would suggest setting the scope again after the rifle has been fired a can of pellets. Is it a great scope...no! But is it a worthless scope.... no. Its a functional scope that keeps the price of this rifle where we can afford it!
