Things I liked:Exactly as advertised! I love it! Easy to cock, accurate to shoot, and quality made. The trigger is a joy to use. Mine came in at 1.78 lb. trigger pull. A laminated tag tied at the trigger guard indicates speed of 468 fps. and trigger pull numbers 1.78lb from the factory and paper of grouped shots. I enjoy shooting this all day at the backyard. At 15 yards shooting at a cone Gamo Pellet trap using .177 Crosman Hollow Point 7.9g pellets, I was able to group shots at a hole no bigger than a dime using a bench rest. It shoots good groups when using: Beeman Hollow Point Pellets or Wad Cutters; Crosman Premier HP 7.9g; RWS Meisterklugen (sp?) Wad Cutters 7.0g; and other German made pellets. But if you're on a budget the Crosman Premiers 7.9g Hollow Point and Beeman standard 7.0 hollow point will do. Very accurate shooting open sight at 15-25 yards. I'm having fun with spinners, pellet trap targets while using 2x6 pinewood boards infront of masonite as backstop. Excellent plinker. Very quiet and quality made. No spring "twang" whatsoever. The Bronco has controlled accurate shots! Bullseye! I love the trigger! Very light. Things I would have changed:Although intended as a youth rifle, the Bronco, in my opinion can be improved by making it capable of 600 - 650 fps using 7.9g - 8.4g . lead .177 pellets. (The Crosman Raven Youth Break Barrel Rifle has 650fps for example) This slight increase in power will allow pellets to penetrate and become trapped inside the 2x6 pinewood board backstop 1/4 in deep. The pellets ricochets making it less safe as a backyard plinker -- Than a Crosman Raven with a hard to pull trigger that I own. What others should know:The Bronco, when scoped 4x32, and zeroed in, makes it much more fun to shoot. You can shoot with confidence knowing you are going to hit the target from which you aimed - and nothing else (within 25 yards). I am so impressed by Air Venturi and this Bronco Model, that today, I decided to buy the Air Venturi Avenger 1100 as well. This time in .22 cal. We'll see how the Bronco's big brother, the Avenger really is.
Things I liked:It moved the scope further back towards my eyes and made scoping out my target easier. Less forward strain on my neck. The one-piece 11mm dove mount fits perfectly on my Air Venturi Avenger 1100 .22 cal. rifle with a 4x32 Leapers 1" scope. The mounts stayed firmly mounted without moving even during the rifle "breaking-in" period -- At the time, the rifle was still dieseling and shooting at irregular speeds. I fired just over 1,030 shots over the last week. and the scope remained steady. I really like this scope mount and rings. Good purchase and I ordered another one for my Beeman. Things I would have changed:Make the 11mm rail mount with 4 screws instead of only two. It is strong and stable the way it is, but it would look better and will match the 4 screws on the ring mounts for the scope. What others should know:This is a perfect scope mount and rings for people like me who is only 5 ft. 5 in. tall and need the scope closer to the rifle's cheek rest to get better sight when shooting.
Things I liked:it is uniformly made and does not get my fingers too dirty. It works well with my Beeman RAM Air RS2 .177 cal. rifle. The best group shot so far that I can get with my Beeman rifle. The Crossman Premiers 7.9g HP; RWS Superpoint; RWS Super H-Point Hollowpoint; RWS Meisterkugeln; Beeman coated Pointed pellets; and RWS Diablo does not group well at all with my Beeman RAM Air RS2 .177 cal. rifle. Things I would have changed:They should be available with 500 count tins and a lower price. What others should know:Tins are small and be sure to tape or rubber band the lid as the tin does not have a screw on lid.
Things I liked:Shoots well and accurate. Shots very good tight groups with my Air Venturi Bronco. Clean and uniform pellets and quality made. Things I would have changed:Make them available with 500 count tins. What others should know:Clean fingers! These Meisterkugeln pellets are clean and don't get my fingers too dirty. The Crossman Premiers 7.9 HP shoots nice groups with my Air Venturi Bronco as well, but my fingers at the end of the shooting session is filthy.
Things I liked:Very clean and uniform pellets. Keeps your rifle bore clean - your fingers too! Things I would have changed:Too expensive. These are identical to the Beeman Coated Pointed Pellets for $2.69 with 250 count tins! They are just dipped in copper with a higher price and more uniformly made. What others should know:I was hoping these higher priced pellets would shoot better in my Beeman RAM Air RS2 .177 cal rifle; but the groupings I get is the same inconsistent 4 to 5 inch groups with the Beeman Coated Pointed Pellets.
Things I liked:Quality made pellets with wide skirts. Forms a tight seal on the breech when loading pellets. (I use break barrel rifles) Things I would have changed:These pellets did not form tight groups with my Beeman RAM Air RS2 .177 cal. rifle. They end up being 4 to 5 inch groups at 50 feet with my Beeman RAM Air RS2 rifle. Using open palm with bean bag rest on a table. I have yet to try them on my Crosman Phantom and Air Venturi Bronco. What others should know:These are excellent pellets, but you must have the right rifle or airgun that work well with them. They are uniformly made and your fingers won't get all that dirty handling them.
Things I liked:Very accurate and consistent form and shape of pellet. The pellet skirts are firm and don't warp easily resulting in consistent shot accuracy. Great for long distance at 50 yards. RWS Superdomes are clean pellets with negligible black residue in my finger tips even after handling 500 pellet rounds. Hits my target almost all the time as long as I do my part. RWS Superdomes 14.5gr are my exclusive .22 cal ammo for my RWS 350 Magnum, and my RWS 350 Feuerkraft rifle. I also have an RWS 350P Magnum air rifle in .22 with Synthetic Stock, but that one shoots better with Crosman Premier 14.3gr HP--but you end up with filthy thumb and fingertips after your shooting session. Things I would have changed:Make them in 500 round tins. A bit too pricey. What others should know:They hit hard and sends my .22 caliber rimfire grade spinners turning at 25-30 yards. Imagine what it would do to varmints.
Things I liked:The RWS Superdome 8.3gr is the best pellet for accuracy and distance for my RWS Model 34 in .177 cal. I love these pellets. They are clean and very uniform in size and shape. The skirts are firm and don't bend or warp easily resulting in consistent accurate shots. I like them so much I stocked up on them. Things I would have changed:Nothing. What others should know:These don't shoot too well on my Beeman RAM Air RS2 Rifle (The old Sportsman 1000) in .177 cal. because the pellet skirts are too wide for the breech.
