Things I liked:Overall, given the price point for this gun I was very satisfied with what I received and how well it has performed: 1) Barrel, piston, stock, etc. had solid build, 2) Scope has AO and performs fine for plinking and hunting, 3) Smooth barrel break, cock and reset without a painful workout, 4) Very powerful for gas piston air discharged .22 with great knock-down power and flat trajectory (ammo dependent of course), 5) Very consistent and accurate after break-in period (about 150 shots for mine), 6) Not ammo picky compared to many air rifles, 7) Hardwood stock is solid and looks great, 8) Gas piston is much quieter and less "bouncy" than my springers, 9) Weaver/Pic rail system is great and allows for solid scope position without any shift/drift, 10) Sling mounts very convenient for hunting or just for hanging gun while changing out targets, etc. Things I would have changed:Again, for the price point, there is very little I feel should be changed. With that said, I do agree with most others in saying the trigger pull is not the smoothest or easiest to learn. BUT, with a little time I did get used to it enough to keep 1" groups @ 30 yards... works for my needs. What others should know:Definitely need to remove, clean, and blue Loctite all hardware because vibration WILL loosen them otherwise. But once done, everything has remained tight for over 1,000 shots now.
Things I liked:VERY solid construction - at 20 lbs. this trap can handle hard hitting heavy .22 air rifle ammo with no damage (other than the expected interior surface paint removal). Saves $$$ in the long run instead of replacing $20 traps every month because their construction fails so quickly... Things I would have changed:Possibly coat the exterior with a rubber-like noise dampening material. What others should know:Trap is great, but be aware it is loud if used as-is. But when sand bags are placed on top of the unit it is much quieter... result is a dead thud versus a loud clang.
