Things I liked:.22 cal. 60 year old male with large rodent problem. Never had a springer before. Cleaned barrel, installed scope & shot at target using 14.66 H&N. Wow. Impressive power & accuracy for $200. After 50 shots I tried the H&N 21.30 pellet. Double wow! I have no doubt this will humanely solve my rodent problem. problem. Things I would have changed:The trigger pull mechanism yet I only have fired 100 pellets. What others should know:Clean barrel before firing then leave it. Manufacturer leaves the machining residue to protect against corrosion. Don't go nuts with JB compound, etc. No solvents. Be very careful if you pull a metal rod through bore. Don't ding the rifling or breech. I mounted scope out of box yet I should have fired 20-30 rounds to get used to recoil of a heavy springer. Use a bench rest to sight in scope.
Things I liked:Excellent quality. Things I would have changed:Nothing. What others should know:These do not lock correctly in the Crosman C31. Use the Crosman clip in C31. Either Crosman or Beretta clip works fine in Elite II. Almost identical yet clip retaining machined area is different.
Things I liked:.22 caliber. Impressive power & accuracy for $200. After about 400 H&N FTT's it groups well at 35 yds & getting better. I was very skeptical at first now I think I'll buy the XL1000 when I have this one dialed in. Things I would have changed:I agree with others about trigger yet you get used to the pull. The adjustment makes only minor change. After warranty ends, may change it out. What others should know:Clean barrel bore before shooting. Looks like manufacturer leaves machining residue yet that protects it. Don't scour with solvents & brushes, just pull some patches through with string trimmer line until clean, then leave it. I pulled a patch through after 400 shots out of curiosity & it was very clean. Be patient as this rifle is just a wild thing out of the box. Loud, inaccurate with recoil like a cannon. As other reviewers stated after a few hundred rounds, it settles down. I have tried a few heavy pellets yet will stay with medium weight pellets.
Things I liked:Great protection. Sturdy construction. The foam blocks included are easy to modify. Great balance when you carry. Things I would have changed:Nothing. What others should know:I have both the Benji NP Trail All-weather & Trail XL1100. The XL1100 dropped in with 1" clearance at barrel end, several inches of scope clearance & looks like thew case was made for rifle. The all-weather needed some foam added.
