    Things I liked:Very accurate. Sure it will get even better once i get back in to it. Lots of shots on one CO2 charge. Very inexpensive to shoot. I have only fired chinese target pellets (The Peak, 8.3 gr), but is working great so far.
    Things I would have changed:The loading trough. It is horrible. Unless you are a little kid, it is a pain to load. any tips anyone? IF you are a tall person, like me, the proportions are a bit off, as far as where the rear sight should be. That may be regulation, but all I know is it is too low. I am looking at trying a dovetail riser and see if it brings it up to a more comfortable height, otherwise I am scrunching my face and holding the rifle at an angle.
    What others should know:For all of those who complain about not being able to charge it or having to buy a special adapter from Daisy, here is your solution: First of all, if you have CO2 bulk fill tank (not a paintball tank, a bulkfill tank), then you can buy the Kingman deluxe CO2 filling station here at Pyramid Air, do a search. On the other hand, If you have access to 9 oz or larger paintball tanks, I suggest you call PA and ask to talk to their techs, specifically Stacey. She custom made me an adapter out of two Benjamin Sheridan CO2 paintball tank adapters for the Discovery, Marauder, Challenger rifles. so I purchased two of the Benjamin adapters, and then she took one of them and exchanged the hose for a male quick disconnect (just like the end of the Benji rifles) and now I can charge my Benjamin rifles AND my Avanti from the same paintball tanks. Just hold your paintball tanks upside down (so the liquid CO2 goes down) and probably chill your Avanti tank for about an hour prior to filling (I think degassing works too, I don't know, CO2 is new to me.) This solution works great. Thanks to Erica and Stacey for helping me get this figured out. Really happy with the setup. I"ll try and post a video review showing my setup later
