Things I liked:The price on mine was outstanding….I got it on craigslist for $65.00. It did however have a few spots of rust due to improper maintenance, but that is the way it goes when you buy used. It also came with an inexpensive leapers 4x32 golden image scope so I have not used the open sights.
I am glad to say that I am very happy with my purchase! The bronco has a delightful two blade two stage trigger that is pleasantly predictable. I wish other low cost airgun makers would adopt this trigger design. The cocking effort is so incredibly smooth and crisp with the added security of an automatic saftey. The accuracy of this gun is amazing to me. I am getting touching five shot groups and solid holes the size of a dime or less indoors at both 10 and 20 yards! I am sad to announce that I am getting more consistent groups with this than I am with my rws Diana 34 with the T06 trigger?
Things I would have changed:The blonde stock, I am more of a brunette kind of guy. What others should know:The previous owner was disappointed because they could not hit anything with it. It was just in need of proper scope installation and adjustment. It is a good idea to spend so time reading the articles and watching the many instructional videos here on pyramydair before you buy a spring airgun.
The reason I wanted this rifle is because my father has already ordered one for my 12 year old son for Christmas. I look forward to showing him that real life can be more interesting and challenging than the video games that he is playing. It will be a lot of fun shooting together with our matching guns. However, he will have a better scope than me, it already arrived from pyramydair this week. Lucky kid!
If you are not familiar with spring airguns take some time and do your research. This gun requires a light artillery hold at the balance point of the stock and a smooth consistent follow-through trigger pull to be accurate. I highly recommend the air venturi bronco. Hope you enjoy yours as much as I am enjoying mine.
