Things I liked:This rifle can be accurate out of the box if the barrel is first cleaned with Hoppe's #9 followed by a good scrubbing with J-B bore cleaner. I strapped on the scope, sighted in my .25 caliber at 10 yards and then took it out to 50. Tweaked the elevation a bit and was soon hitting golf balls and the 1 1/2 inch kill zone on the Gamo knockdown targets. I'm not interested in hitting aspirins. This is a hunter. There are many good smaller caliber rifles out there which would give you pin point accuracy if that's what you're looking for. But this is a winner in terms of power, accuracy and report (surprisingly quiet).
Things I would have changed:The trigger could stand some improvement. Having said that the adjustment that allows for shortening the second stage enables the shooter to touch it off after having taken away the unduly long travel inherent in the first stage. You just have to learn where the break is located by feel and experience.
What others should know:I can't say how well this rifle will hold up over time but as of now, it appears to be the best bargain on the air gun market for small game hunting and pest control. You can plink with it too if you so desire provided you're in pretty good shape as the cocking reqires a heavy effort.

Things I liked:The way to shoot this pistol is with a scope. Use 2 sided tape under the clamps to secure Crosman B 272 intermounts to the barrel. With this setup I shoot 2 inch groups, off hand, at 25 yard (7 pumps) and 3 inch groups at 4 (8 pumps) . I have a P-1 and a Browning 800 Mag. I shoot this as well if not better.
Things I would have changed:Nothing
What others should know:You don't have to pay a lot for a quality air pistol that will be accurate at typical pistol distances.
