Things I liked:inexpensive Things I would have changed:I would rather have a weaver mount on top instead of the 3/8 rail . If you use an adapter it will be very tall , and would like to use some different optics choices not available for 3/8 direct fit . What others should know:Had read other reviews and heard of shimming for better fit . I used to thin strips[under 3/16" wide] of 3m double sided foam tape along the top of the barrel where the seems are . I also mount with no space in between the mounts and have seen no negative moment etc. Very light red dot mounted on top.
Things I liked:Gun is solid and all metal and wood. Moving parts are well fitted. Good hard hitting power. Things I would have changed:Powder coat/ paint is on the muzzle/crown area , had to remove and re-crown. Trigger frame is cast metal still has a ridge which could/should have been ground off. What others should know:MADE IN USA WITH SOME FOREIGN COMPONENTS IS WHAT IT SAYS ON THE BOX. Crosman insists it is only a couple seals, for this kind of money they should be able to make those in NY too.
