Things I liked:Overall quality & operation, accuracy, trigger, cocking, appearance Things I would have changed:Front sight hood was hard to remove to accommodate scope at low power. What others should know:Buy a good one to begin with. I found a Winchester on sale at Walmart as an upgrade from a multi-pump Crosman. It was an improvement but only made it clearer that I wasn't going to be happy until I had a quality air gun. You can spend more than I did on the Hammerli but I'm very happy with it and do not see myself outgrowing it. It's accurate enough for plinking with my buddies and has enough power to bust the occasional varmint.
Things I liked:Trigger, LOP, cocking resistance, accuracy, stock, nice little 4X scope, I like having the Ruger brand on the rifle and the scope. This shoots as well as my Hammerli and shoots rings around my Winchester. It's a tremendous value. Things I would have changed:Fiber optic rod on rear sight flew out on the very first shot...I wish they were more substantial. What others should know:This is a real shooter! Dime sized groups at 30 yards within 30 shots. I love the trigger and the fit of the stock. It DOES NOT like pellets that are loose in the breech when you load..like the Gamo Pro Magnums...4 inch groups with fliers! I'm having good luck with Beeman Silver Bears and H&N Match wadcutters. Predator Polymags group real well to.
