Things I liked: The gun is easy to cock and my 9 year old had no problems cocking it which made him feel like a big boy. It is light. It is a solid gun.
Things I would have changed: The trigger is just too hard to pull. I was new to buying an air gun when I bought this gun so I didn't quite understand the trigger pull force. My nine year old has to use two fingers to pull the trigger. Now that my boy is becoming a better shot, he is frustrated with the trigger because it is hard for him to be consistent. He got a blister on his finger from trying to shot it. I have an old Sheridan pump and that trigger is so much easier that my boy is using that gun. If I would have known at the time I got this gun that the PCP was so easy to operate, I would have gotten him a Benjamin Discovery which is what I ended up getting him. I have a very hard time being consistent with this gun because of the trigger. It also has no safety.
What others should know: To get my boy to learn to cock a gun and start hitting a target it is ok but once they get to be good shots this gun losses its ability to satisfy. The only youth part of this gun is the weight and cocking effort.
Things I liked: There are so many things about this gun to like it is hard to start. The balance and the feel of this gun is unreal and the adjustments to make it fit your body, enhance the experience. The trigger is as smooth as silk and pulls the pellet right to the target. It seems like it shoots forever on a single charge. It is very nice to have 20 rounds to shoot off without having to reach into a pellet container. It is quite and doesn't let your neighbors know what you are up to in your backyard. The gun instills confidence in you and when you miss you know that it is your technique to blame and not the gun. After a quick sight in, I was doing dime size clusters of 20 rounds quicker than you could say Air Arms, because of the 4 magazines. When you look at it there is no question that this is a quality rifle.
What others should know: You will need a few adapters to be able to use a hand pump with this gun. It seems to take longer to pump up by hand then my other PCPs. My son is left handed and doesn't seem bothered by the right handed stock when he shoots it.
