Things I liked:Value for the money is great even if the scope and rings are junk. Add a Leepers or Hawke scope of your choice with an OA. They are both magnum air rifle rated and reviews are solid for them. Enjoy the sport! Things I would have changed:Drop the price for the bare rifle, or offer a gun case for the same price and call it a combo. The thumb screw mounts and no brand "Optima" scope without an adjustable objective is less than thrilling. There is not one reviewer who likes this scope. What others should know:I contacted Hatsan through their webs site about an inferior walnut stock finish. They emailed me back within 3 hours and offered to pay shipping both ways to replace the stock or the complete gun and send me a tin of pellets! Got to say it is the best customer support I have ever had from anyone ever.
Accuracy is greatly improved using an artillery hold. USA Olympians use it and if you Google there is a good video for this hold on the rifle.
