Things I liked:Powerful, not to hard to cock and mine is VERY accurate when set up properly (see below) to the point that it shoots better then I do. Even with the scope mounting issues i was able to ping a 4 inch target at 50 yards.
Priced in an affordable range i think you could hunt pretty well with this gun, as well as target shoot and plink.
I like the trigger,which feels somewhat heavy out of the box. I like the synthetic stock (wood would have been nicer but for the price the money is better spent on the actual air gun mechanism) with its raised stippeling which provides a good grip (not as nice as checkering would have been but OK)
Recoil feels about as much as my pals .22 rimfire.
Scope is pretty decent for this rifle.
Things I would have changed:Better scope rings.
Sling would be nice too.
I dont like the safety being right infrount of the trigger- if it were automatic i might like it better. What others should know:Scope mount SUCKS-
Make sure the set screw goes into the hole (mine didnt fit properly)
POI would change after every few shots... eventually I realized that
the scope mount had bounced HALF OFF THE GUN - pretty annoying as I was in the woods on vacation. The verticle set screw had gouged a trail as it bounced backwards on every shot. When I got home I got a tap and die set and enlarged the hole to take the set screw (which did not fit properly before) and now the gun is a tackdriver at 15 yards (not taken it out again)
Things I liked:Dead on target when i got the sights adjusted- had to look up an old army training vid on youtube.
It shoots plastic army men and plastic animals at 15 meters every time with Daisy BB's which is all i shoot indoors. With pellets its even better, but I dont want the dust inside. Things I would have changed:I really like this airgun when it comes to shooting and really really wish they had made it out of better material... it FEELS like a kids toy due to the nasty plastic so its an indoor only shooter.
The magazine is ok but prone to sticking,
Biggest issue is the little key's (2 come in the box) used to tighten the co2 powerlets- the first one broke the second time i used it and so i baby the other one and have ended up with improperly pierced powerlets because i'm frightened of snapping the junk plastic tightening key...which has virtually no gripping surface or leverage anyway....make it an integral hand screw or pack a single metal key with a decent grip to torque with.
What others should know:Good: This airgun is fun to shoot and very accurate with pellets or even BB's and has authentic (and cool...) adjustable "peep" style sights.
It is the same size a the real gun and "points" really nicely.
Bad: airgun FEELS like its going to break if you bump or drop it, and i'd beware of leaning the plastic barrel against anything long term, for fear of bending it.
If you can get it for less then 100 bucks i'd say its a pretty good deal for plinking in the garden.
