Things I liked:This is an extremely accurate rifle.
With JSB Exacts I get sub 1/4" groups at 25 yards.
Plenty of power for small game and pest control.
The stock itself is just gorgeous! It seems to have a soft glow to the wood.
Lots of people seem to comment on the weight but although it's heavy it's wonderfully balanced with just slight weight forward.
I will admit, this rifle absolutely has a break in period. When I first started shooting the groups were less then great even when using perfect artillery hold. I decided to hold off on doing the review until I had a full tin of JSB Exacts through it and WHAT A DIFFERENCE! To say that every part of this gun preforms better after about 500 shots is an understatement. It is literally night and day difference. I would not trade or sell this rifle for the world it's that good! Just stick with it and you will be rewarded. Things I would have changed:1.The Freaking stupid tiny screws that hold on the muzzle brake. Save yourself lots and lots of head aches when you first receive this RWS, remove the muzzle brake and put two (2) drops of Blue thread lock in each of the two screw holes. Re-attach the muzzle brake and snug the two tiny screws down. Then the most important part put the rifle somewhere out of sight for 24 hrs. Once these two little screws have set up you will be free and clear to start seeing the amazing accuracy of this rifle (note: the front cap on the muzzle brake did not loosen on me when shot but I still put a couple drops of blue thread locker on those threads just to be safe you might as well since it will be sitting for 24hrs anyway :))
The scope that comes with it is good on a scale of 1-10 it sits at a solid 7. That being said the scope had very loose windage adjustments. The elevation gave a solid reassuring click with each adjustment. The windage had no click at all but it still adjusted crosshairs accordingly with how much you turned it. This may very well not be every scope but it may have been just the one I had. Still this was not a big deal and definitely would not discourage me from ordering the same thing all over again.
3. VERY Slight surface rust IF you have prolonged use in very humid or moist conditions. Let me first be clear that this is NOT specifically a pro compact issue. I have 5 RWS rifles all will get this if I dont wipe them down with a very lightly oiled rag a EASY FIX : What others should know:The scope mount that comes with the gun is plenty adequate and I actually like it very much. The one and only item I would suggest as an unnecessary but fantastic improvement would be to purchase a Center Point 4x16x40mm adventure class scope to put on it. That is what I currently have on it and it fits like it was made just for this gun! I am consistently taking down pesky house sparrows (These are legal to shoot where I am) anywhere from 15 to 50 yards. Well worth the money (70$ ish) to pair with such a fantastic rifle.
Last but not least.
The people working at Pyramyd Air were just FANTASTIC to deal with. Very polite, knowledgeable and ready to help. Do not have any reservations about purchasing from them they truly are honest and reliable people.
Hope this review helps. Shoot straight Be Safe and always check local laws.
