    Things I liked:Solid mostly metal build...Holds alignment on all my air rifles and pistols even though I don't own a springer...Personally I like the tightening screw to hold the alignment as most other models in this price range don't have it and lose alignment as a result..The 4 MOA dot sizes and 7 intensity levels cover all my shooting needs and more actually...The one mount tightening screw is a cross section rod to stop shifting on the Weaver mount...Lens is quite bright in low light as a result of the coated glass...I tried a couple others in this style and a couple more in the scope style and for me this Walther MDS was by far the best value...
    Things I would have changed:A seperate on/off switch so I wouldn't have to rotate the top knob 3-4 positions both ways every time I use it...Of course this would add to the cost so hopefully the rotating switch will hold up...
    What others should know:The sight is Made in China and not Germany like most Walther products...

    Things I liked:Most accurate pellet for my Crosman 2260 and fits/loads smoothly...
    Things I would have changed:Keep them in stock
    What others should know:I tried all 3 Crosman Premier 14.63 pellets, including the 625 ct. box and this Beeman FTS clearly shot better groups in my Crosman 2260...The FTS will consistently shoot 3/4" groups at 25 yds with my 2260 and a cheapo Daisy red dot sight...I don't really need a scope but clearly the groups would probably tighten to 1/2" or better at 25 yds using one... All the Crosmans would struggle to keep 2" groups at 25 yds...I was surprised the 2260 didn't really like the Crosmans as my 1077 absolutely loves the .177 Premiers... Also, the H&N Field Target Trophy is supposed to be the exact same pellet so try them when they are available..

    Things I liked:Two power settings,screw adjustments rather than knobs and very solid with minimal lateral movement.
    Things I would have changed:Maybe a larger viewing area but that would increase size and cost.
    What others should know:Along with this Daisy I tried the Crosman and UTG/Leapers dot sights in the $10-15 price range. To me the Daisy is the brightest and sharper dot, plus it has 2 power settings. The Daisy also has MUCH less side/end play than the other two. The difference is huge and as a result the Daisy holds zero much better. I also like the screw adjustments better than the knobs because the knobs are easy to knock out of whack. I have used my Daisy's on four pistols, one of them .22 cal and two rifles, one of them .22 cal. The Daisy has held zero on all of them perfectly. Admittedly, I only shot targets in my back yard and lay the guns down on a bench when necessary, so they don't get knocked around in hunting or paintball type activities. The Daisy holds zero for pure gun recoil and that's all that matters to me. This is actually a case where the less expensive unit is superior in many ways to it's competition

    Things I liked:ACCURACY...So far I can get consistent 3/8" groups at 25 yards with a 3-9x50 scope using H&H Field Target Trophy pellets...Smooth and fairly crisp trigger pull...Overall a very high quality bolt action repeating rifle..
    Things I would have changed:Availablity of hardwood stock...
    What others should know:I have tried all the Crosman Premiers including the 625 ct. box along with Beeman Crows and Kodiaks with mixed results up to 1 1/2" groups at 25 yards...Check around for various ways to bulk feed the 850 or even refill the 88 gram cartridges which only adds to the shooting pleasure...

    Things I liked:Consistency of accuracy with 88 gram cartridge over the 12 gram...With the 12 gram you may get 20 shots in the middle of the cartridge where the accuracy and performance are consistent whereas with the 88 gram this number increases to 200 plus...
    Things I would have changed:Trigger action of the Nightstalker and availability of wood stock...
    What others should know:The accuracy advantage with the larger tank is huge...I can get 3/4" groups at 25 yards using the Crosman Field Hunting pellets and a Daisy red dot sight...Ironic this gun prefers the less expensive pellets over all the more expensive premier variations..I imagine any magnified scope combo would shrink the groups even more... The gun is also easily adapted to 9, 12 and/or 20 oz tanks while using a hose of course...Careful though, one can go through a 500 count tin of pellets REAL fast...

    Things I liked:VERY accurate with my Hammerli 850 getting 3/8" groups at 25 yards using a 3-9x50 scope...They come in 500 ct. tin with a much more competitive price whereas the Beeman equivalents are only 200 ct.
    Things I would have changed:Nothing as they are marvelous as is...
    What others should know:The new lid is an improvement by snapping on via 2 small indents...My Crosman 2260 also prefers these over several other brands and weights... For me they take an extra step in pushing them into the magazines...I just lay the pellets on the magazine and then push each one further in using some sort of semi pointed tool...Just pushing with the fingers or thumb isn't quite enough to engage the rubber oring retainer in the center of the magazine and consequently the pellets can fall back out rather easily. I don't mind the little extra loading effort with the superb accuracy these pellets provide...

    Things I liked:Awesome 3/8" groups at 75' with my Hammerli 850 .22 cal
    Things I would have changed:Nothing
    What others should know:The skirts on these are very thin and soft...Sometimes they are not perfectly round so I designed a tool to correct...I simply took a pellet and attached a toothpic with some apoxy on the inside...Since I own the Hammerli 850 and it's magazine makes a nice holder I used it for the project...Insert the pellets in the magazine with the bottom and where the round head of the pellet will be, on some soft wood like pine...Then take the tool with the round nose and push down firmly on the skirt of each loaded pellet...Any skirt deformation will be quickly rounded into shape without deforming the rest of the pellet...This simple process has almost totally eliminated any fliers and also has resulted in amazing 3/8" groups at 75' with the 850... Even just holding the pellets in one hand and pushing the round nose of the tool firmly on the skirt with the other hand will work...

    Things I liked:One hole groups at 75 ft. with Marauder.
    Things I would have changed:Possibly larger container to help the cost.
    What others should know:These shoot superb with CO2 and PCP. I use mostly CO2 for plinking in my back yard but even at 560 fps with CO2 they hold a group and ignore the wind real well. This is a do it all pellet for me. Plinking or hunting it will deliver.

    Things I liked:Accuracy and options available...Different power levels, barrel lengths and even different calibers, all from the same gun...Plus Made in USA with a limited lifetime waranty...
    Things I would have changed:Better grips...These are very cheaply made...
    What others should know:One hole groups at 25 yards using Falcon 13.43 gr. pellets at 760 fps on CO2...Still holding a 3/8" group at 40 yards which is the furthest I can go in my yard...I tested several JSB's and they all admirably held 1/2-5/8" groups at 40 yards...Basically this gun will shoot any pellet real well and some EXTREMELY well... Even with the thinner 12 oz tank and high mount rings I still opted for the AirForce Tri-Rail base for even more height...Using the 20 oz tank it was very difficult to maintain a sight picture through the scope without triple stacking or offset ring mounts...I can still get 500 plus shots with the 12 oz tank so that's enough for me...Plus the lb. less weight is a bonus as well... This gun is finely crafted and other than the grips is of the highest quality, durability and functionality...

    Things I liked:VERY accurate in my Condor using CO2...Consistent 1/4" or less hole in hole groups at 40 yards...When I first tested them I was getting ticked with so many fliers until I realized they were actually one hole shots instead...
    Things I would have changed:Nothing...
    What others should know:After testing 12 different pellets these came out on top using my AirForce Condor at 40 yards...The Air Arms Falcon 13.43 grains came in second followed very closely by the 14.3 grain JSB Exacts and then the 15.9 JSB Exacts with 1/2" groups at 40 yards...I didn't try any of the heavier Kodiaks and Barracudas because of using CO2 and the lower available energy... With the Condor on CO2 these were averaging 720 fps for 18.4 ft. lbs...Plenty for my back yard target shooting and occasional crow hunting. Some say these are re-packaged JSB's and that may be but all my CO2 air rifles prefer the Air Arms over the JSB's for whatever reason...
