Things I liked:Durable, solid black is really cool and the power of this rifle is EXCELLENT for the price. Things I would have changed:They should have mounted the scope from the factory (novices might have a problem- my son had issues keeping it railed as he tightened it down. Also sling swivel mounts would have been a real plus (not included). What others should know: This is a weapon in every sense of the word. Accuracy, speed and power of the pellets are as strong as a 22. Adult supervision is necessary if bought for a youth. Also, since this is a, "barrel cocker," sling mounts are VERY difficult to find and mount, so gunsmith maybe needed......have fun!
