Things I liked:Lightweight,accurate,and quiet for a springer..22 available! Things I would have changed:Stock Trigger. What others should know:You will get the best shot groups,using GAMO Hunter pellets.I can only speak for the .22 version of this gun.Master a shooting technique,where you hold the gun as lightly as possible,and let the gun do it's thing.Springers are very hold sensitive,so focus on using the same hold,and technique,every time,and you will get KILLER shot groups with this gun.
Order a GRT III trigger!This is the best single upgrade you will EVER get for this gun.
The noise dampening system DOES work.It is not that apparent to the shooter, and you may be disappointed at first,because you may think it should be quieter.This is because what you will hear,is actually the spring,and piston cycling,when it is fired.
But at a distance this gun is VERY quiet.The more the gun breaks in the quieter it will get.You could probably nail a squirrel in the head from 50 ft.away,and your next door neighbor could be standing outside,and wouldn't hear it.Not that I know anything about that.
Lets just say it's an educated guess.You will like this gun.
I noticed some vibration upon firing I didn't like.I corrected this by stuffing the gun stalk with memory foam.Vibration gone!This is a hard rifle to put down,at the end of the day!
