Things I liked:This is the best spring rifle at this price point. My rifle arrived in perfect condition. It surpassed my expectations in quality. The walnut stock is worth the price of the rifle. It shoots well. It's not quite the shooter that my RWS is, but it's 90% as good at half the price. I wanted a 22 cal. rifle for squirrel control, and it's very good at that. It's very accurate with open sights. It is definitely is more accurate than my ability to aim it. Well done Hatsan. Things I would have changed:The scope is not very useful. Hatsan should offer this without the scope. It needs a better mount to properly hold the supplied scope, as this rifle does have a medium amount of recoil. What others should know:This rifle shoots quite differently with different pellets. The crosman hollow points are very effective against squirrels, but are hard to load. The air arms domed are easier to load. For better accuracy, don't hold this rifle too tightly. The stock will be too large in the grip area for those with small to medium size hands. This is an adult size and weight gun.
