Things I liked: Excellent fit and finish, very nice ergonomics, cocking effort moderate (wouldn't be a prob for smaller/younger shooters), beautiful gun appearance-wise, EXCELLENT Customer Service from PA (above and beyond what I had ever expected)
Things I would have changed: Quality Control. Trigger. Accuracy. Did I mention Quality Control?
What others should know: I picked this up on a whim, decided to look for a nice PCP rifle but wanted something to shoot in the interim while I tracked down the SCBA gear, etc and decided on this gun. Having shot Springers before and also having REALLY liked my buddies NP, I figured "what the heck" regardless of the mixed reviews ... And go figure, I got a Lemon. Within about 30 shots the reticle busted loose in the scope and rotated, a couple of fast phone calls and it was on its' way to Crosman for Warranty replacement. I mounted up a buddies UTG and ran a couple of hundred rounds through it to get things all together, tightened up the barrel bolt and started to get it dialed in - which has been impossible. While my buddies XP is great and I can routinely group at well under .75" at 30m, this gun was plagued with at LEAST a 50/50 ratio of flyers, some off the entire paper. Without a Chrony, I can't give exact velocities but the delay between trigger and target was actually MORE than noticeable and varied wildly - I suspect a bad seal but figured it wasn't worth chasing the trouble down for what could be weeks, etc (done this before, LOL). PA was GREAT and issued me a delayed RMA while I wait for the scope to be returned from Crosman, and in the interim I found a great deal on a used .25 Marauder, tank, etc which only proves to me that Crosman/Benji CAN make a dead-accurate, beautiful gun - it just wasn't this one. Using the credit and a few bucks to grab a Hatsan AT44-10 so no harm, happy customer.
Things I liked: N/A
Things I would have changed: Quality Control - chipped and dented skirts, mismolded pellets, weights all over the place, mold marks - like a ten-year-olds first attempt at making lead soldiers.
What others should know: VERY poor QC, I ordered 2 tins to try out and will be either returning one or melting them to use for molding. Tried in my ShinSung Infinity as well as my 201s, with the .35 JSB's off bags my Infinity and I group at .65 or under at 75yds,under an inch with RB's, these were literally missing the paper. At 30yds they were a 4-5" group off of bags - absolutely unacceptable.
Things I liked: Consistent, Load and Cycle Well, Great Performer, very little if any wind drift with light to moderate wind
Things I would have changed: Even with the 3:4 pricing, they're a bit spendy at $0.155 per pellet shipped. Given the accuracy and quality in my ShinSung Infinity though, it's worth it compared to the AV or EunJin offerings, which perform terribly in both my 9mm's.
What others should know: Don't be fooled by the fact that they are comparatively light, they fly VERY straight and even in wind they don't wander - get your holdover right and they hit solid and true to 100yds+. Great Pellet !!!
