Things I liked:The accuracy, power, price, metal receiver and barrel, pellet and bb capabilities, Things I would have changed:Maybe a smaller front sight. The fiber optic tip is a little too big to use at longer ranges. What others should know:For $60 you cannot get a better, all around air gun. This gun is perfect for beginners and for practicing rifle shooting. For moderately experienced shooting this is still a great gun to own. I have a 3-12x50 scope on it that is sighted in for 50yards with the crosman preimer hollow points. I can hit a half dollar with it every time. The other great pellet choice for this gun it the gamo rockets. At up to 30 yards they will penetrate about halfway into 1" thick plywood. Being, once again, extremely accurate. I see a lot of people complaining about the bbs being inaccurate on this gun. but it you get the hard sights adjusted for pellets bbs will be accurate up to 15 yards. At 10 yards or under, you can multi-load bbs and get an accurate spread of multiple bbs towards the same target. The only thing to know about the bb option is that if you have extra bbs in the stock they rattle around, which can get annoying. As long as you just fill the 15 round spring mag you should be fine. The pumping lever can be tough at first, but people of most ages should be able to handle it. I hear most people pumping it only 5-6 times, but for me 8-10 keeps it consistently accurate. The two pins holding the pumping lever in can become loose but if you push them back in they usually stick. I've had this gun going on 2 years now and it still fires like new. I've put around 30,000 rounds through it and have yet to have a failure to fire or broken part. I highly recommend this gun for any shooter.
