Things I liked:Built in sun shade is great. I bought it for the long eye relief due to my 70 yr old eyes and cant be happier with the eye relief. I'm using it on an RWS-34 & its a good fit . So far I've pumped 200 rds thru it and all is well. The odd part is the product specs here says it has a 35 yd parallax but the box it came in says its preadj is 100 yrds?. The eye piece at the rear has multi turn adj to match your eyes and I had to turn it around 10 turns till my eyes now see from short range out to 100 yrds and its very good focus. Good enough for my weak eyes without glasses. Things I would have changed:More sturdy flip up lens covers but after 200 rds they are still holding together. The person who wrote the instructions on the lock down feature is goofy. Very lame instructions that I found simply goofy. Who cares about the lock down anyway.
I would have preferred 50mm rather than 40mm. But 40 is OK. What others should know:I spent a very long time reading about air gun scopes. The video's provided here were very helpful. As well as reading the different reviews of scopes. I preset the elevation and windage to where it looked right and the first shot at 20 yrd was only 3/4" low. A few clicks and it was dead center. That was the only adj I had to make and it only took two shots to have it sighted in dead center. Very amazing. Entire sighting in took less than 5 mins and I've never sighted in a scope before :-) And I've never shot an air gun before either. Thanks to the video's :-)
Things I liked:I found the open sights on the .177 to be very good out to my normal range of 50 yds for varmint control. But I equipped it with the 4X40 Leapers Tactedge long eye relief scope as at 70yrs age, every vision advantage is needed. For a younger person with good eyes, the open sights would be just fine at that range. The new TO6 metal trigger is excellent. I've shot pistol and rifle all my adult life and the trigger is up there with the best of them. No adj were necessary :-) Things I would have changed:Too bad the UTG special RWS scope mount wont fit the guns with the TO6 trigger. As all the current 2011 RWS production use the TO6 trigger. Perhaps UTG will upgrade their mount soon? Also, it would be great to see a bundle with a wider range choice of Leaper Scopes. So a person dosnt have to spend so much time on the web site doing research. What others should know:I spent a lot of time viewing the Video's and reading the reviews on this site and found them very helpful. Pyramyd Air is providing great service in this way. And made the choice of air guns and scope a lot easier. I use the .177 cal only for varmint control and this gun has great knock down power. Every shot I've made with it has been a clean kill using RWS field line superdome. And the noise is low compared to other air guns I've used 35 yrs ago. Lots have changed in that 35 yrs !! For the better too.
