Things I liked:No startling observations. However, everything you read is true. This is a great little carbine: very accurate and light. Everyone can have fun with this rifle. It is very easy to shoot well. It is no 50 yard rifle. Keep your targets within 30 (maybe 40) yards and it is great. Also don’t expect it to go 40 yards when it is 49 degrees outside. This power envelope is not a disadvantage in a suburban environment or other locations where the open space is limited to small parcels of land. Every Air gunner should have one of these. Friends new to the sport will get instant success using this rifle…. We all are ambassadors of air gunning. The scope that comes with it is a great match for the gun and all that is needed given the power level. Things I would have changed:The open sites are a waste. The trigger is o.k. What others should know:I am an oddity. I have gone from Mercedes to Corvettes, and RWS to Crosman. Nitro Piston baby...
Things I liked:Just out of the box… Accuracy is great. Marksmanship is almost effortless with a very good trigger. More accurate than my 2300S clone and it hits with a lot more power, and it is not as loud… Wow.
I have a shoulder stock and it worked great with the pistol converting it a single shot carbine. Accuracy beats power in my book. Recharging air from the Crosman hand pump is fine.
A Great first impression, and it is worth the extra money.
Things I would have changed:None noted yet.
Things I liked:Great for Crosman Pistols with long barrels Things I would have changed:I have four of these. How about different colors? I use colored tape for quick identification. Do I own too many air pistols... Of course not...
Things I liked:A great heavy pellet. I use in CO2, PCP and a Springer (RWS 48). Low velocity in the CO2 but the pellet stays on course and hits like a hammer. Things I would have changed:None noted. Still cheaper than rimfire and target practice in the back-yard is safe and sane.
