Things I liked:this is the first RWS i have ever owned, so i did not know what to expect. it is very nice out of the box. nice heavy feel, very stout. beautiful wood, the trigger is really nice. i was very excited about the noise level, it is actually pretty quiet, not silent, but i can shoot it in my backyard and not get nervous that the neighbors will be alarmed, this was really my main objective with finding a well made air rifle. overall it is just a time tested sure thing, well made air rifle, that i know will be in my family for many years. Things I would have changed:maybe add some fancy checkering on the stock like the 350 magnum. What others should know:pyramid air customer service did a good job. i did the 10 shots for $10, and i felt it was worth it.
