    Things I liked:I like the heft of the rifle. It handles like a true centerfire rifle. Very accurate with the right scope combination. Dime to nickel sized groups of 5 at 35 yards. I've put over 2000 pellets through this air rifle. No vibrations, smooth and crisp. Well broken in. I've plinked at ranges greater than 50 yards and hit the target. I haven't benched it further than 40 yards but suspect it would fair well even at 50-70 yards. I think I picked a pretty good rifle out of the production line.
    Things I would have changed:The factory scope is inadequate for the forward recoil of this spring piston air rifle. Mine broke within the first week of firing. Gamo needs to go back to the drawing board with their scopes. They don't hold a zero. It's a shame that they've put such a low quality scope on and air rifle with such promising potential. I changed to the Leapers AO 3-9x50 Illuminated mil dot UTG scope. Superb accuracy with this combination using Gamo Hunter 8.3 gr. pellets. Dime to nickel sized groups of 5 at 35-40 yards. Deadly in capable hands with this combination. The trigger is a little stiff and creepy at times but tolerable because I hit what I'm aiming at. I've plinked at ranges greater than 50 yards and hit the target. I haven't benched it further than 40 yards but suspect it would fair well even at 50-70 yards. I think I picked a pretty good rifle out of the production line.
    What others should know:This air rifle has GREAT potential. With the accuracy that I'm acquiring now, I wounder what will happen with a premium tune package for this air rifle.
