    Things I liked:Agree with other reviewers, this gun is quiet and very accurate with only open sights. The scope is just adequate. I found the trigger to be fine.
    Things I would have changed:Leave out the scope and drop the price a few bucks. The rings that come with the rifle are garbage. They would not align properly. Be very aware that the stock color is not as pictured (see my pics). The color is duller and the grain is not pronounced. Crossman needs to improve their QC. There are numerous places on the stock that were left unstained.
    What others should know:Pyramyd Air does not stock extra rings, so it's best to contact Crossman directly at 800-724-7486 for replacement rings. I had a new set within 1 week after speaking to them. The new set was entirely different than the set that came with the rifle and worked perfectly. (see my pics). They look exactly like Centerpoint 1" rings, med, 3/8" dovetail CPM2PA-25M. So far I have tried Crossman Premier Ultra Magnum Dome 10.5 gr and RWS Superdome 8.3 gr pellets. The RWS were slightly more accurate.

    Things I liked:I agree with the other reviewers. This rifle is quiet and accurate, even with just the open sights. The supplied Center Point 3-9x32mm scope is cheap but adequate. The trigger on mine is fine.
    Things I would have changed:The color of the stock is not exactly as pictured (see my pic). The grain is not as pronounced and dull. The color is more of a chocolate brown. Crossman needs better QC. There are numerous places on the stock that they did not stain (see my pics). I recommend finishing it with a gun stock oil, i.e. Birchwood-Casey Tru-Oil, to bring out the grain and help protect it. The ring mounts are poorly machined. I spent an hour trying to get the ring mounts to line up with the barrel and with each other. I gave up, no way were they going to work. (see my pics, one is mislabeled, the badly misaligned rings are the originals). It would make more sense to sell the gun cheaper without the scope and rings. Contacted Crossman about the rings. They sent me an entirely different set of scope rings (see my pics). These work perfectly. The new ones have 2 allen head screws instead of 1 thumb screw to secure the ring to the barrel. Hopefully Crossman includes these rings in future stock. If not for the included junk scope rings I would have given it a 5 overall rating.
    What others should know:So far I have tried Crossman Premier Ultra Magnum Round Nose 10.5gr and RWS Super Dome 8.3gr pellets. For accuracy, I prefer the RWS pellets.
