Things I liked:I like the styling and the stock. Metal and wood construction. Fun and accurate. Made in the USA. Easy to work on when the need arises. Pyramid Air is great to deal with and also carries the parts for the Blue Streak 392 and 397 models. Crosman has put the brass valve back into this Model which in my opinion is a very good move. Things I would have changed:I would let it be known proudly that the CB9 is made in the USA and I would stamp the gun "Blue Streak" Model CB9 instead of just CB9. I would also price the Blue Streak accordingly with the 392 and 397 that are identical. What others should know:A little hard to pump after 6 pumps but not to bad.
