Things I liked:Powerful, accurate and quiet. Make sure you have a good backstop if you are using it in the back yard. I had to buy the dogs a new pool after my first shot went through an old lawn chair cushion and a 1/2 inch sheet of plywood! Things I would have changed:Leave the scope out of this package deal. It is worse than useless. I mounted it using the included wrench, which merely stripped the screws, and was barely able to remove that piece of garbage. Put my own scope and mount on it, and it shoots like a dream. What others should know:I cannot stress enough for anyone that buys this rifle to NOT use the included scope. It looks nice enough, but it is junk. Gamo should scrap it.
