Things I liked:Wood finish, machining quality, size, ease of use and quiet sound level. Packaging. Accuracy. Included scope mounts. Likes a light handed artillery hold but is forgiving if you grip it firmly like a regular rifle. More accurate with different types of pellets than others would make you believe. Perfect step up for those that loved their Red Ryder Daisy or Crossman pumpers. Things I would have changed:Instructions could be better. Ability to turn safety off and then back on would be nice rather than just off. If moving up to a scope versus iron sights you will have some reading to do on how to properly set up. What others should know:Remember all the fun you got out of the Crosman 760 Pumpmaster? Well I wanted a similar sized and medium power plinker and sparrow taker outer but in a professional finish with incredible accuracy. I also wanted a quiet gun in a pick up and go form factor. You get that with the Beeman R7. Lastly, I don't understand why this gun is the highest rated gun with the most users. A well made gun that is the perfect size and form factor for everyday .177 backyard shooting.
Things I liked:Very accurate to 15 yds with my beeman R7 Can't speak to accuracy beyond that range. Things I would have changed:Nothing What others should know:It is a fancy wadcutter and with a good gun it has great knockdown power for nuisance birds like starlings and HOSP.
