Things I liked:A very solid gun that feels good to hold. Accurate out of the box shooting Crosman Premier 10.5 grain round nose with open sights. The stock fiber optic sights are very easy to see. Things I would have changed:I wish it had a Weaver mount as opposed to the 11mm dovetail. Very little recoil, but one of the louder pellet guns I own. What others should know:I use this as a back yard plinker. My 7 year old son and I really enjoy shooting together, and he does well with this gun despite having trouble disengaging the safety. Get a nice sand bag rest, a tin or two of pellets, and have fun. This is a good quality, well made gun that will last. I also think it's a good value for the money.
