Things I liked:This is a decent and economical pistol for anyone that wants to practice target shooting and plinking in their back yard.
Things I would have changed:The adjustments for the back sight are not smooth. The up and down is labelled, but the windage is not, so you have to fiddle with it to figure out how to properly adjust it. I put some masking tape on the barrel near the sights to help me remember which way to turn the windage adjustement knob. The back sights don't seem that solid, either, like I'm not sure if they will move around on me after some shooting.
What others should know:This pistol came out of the box looking and feeling fairly dirty. I wasn't sure it was a keeper at first. After giving it a good cleaning the accuracy improved quite a bit. After a couple hundred rounds the trigger is starting to loosen up some, which is nice, cuz it was fairly stiff at first. If you don't like it right out of the box first give it a cleaning and then put a couple hundred rounds through it, then see how you feel.

Things I liked:This gun is accurate, easy to shoot, and quiet enough that it won't disturb the neighbors. So far is has shot all the pellets I've tried with good accuracy, some just slightly better than others.
Things I would have changed:Double cocking the gun could result in damage. It would be nice if that wasn't a concern. If you aren't sure you cocked it it's safer to put a pellet in and pull the trigger than to double pump.
What others should know:For target shooting indoors or out this makes a fantastic first air rifle to own. The stock is easy to adjust, and you'll never have to wonder if the gun is accurate. I started with some cheaper "starter" guns and wish I'd saved my money and bought this one the first time. I put a UTG scope on top and the shooting experience is top notch.
