Things I liked:Classic well made pellet rifle. Add the scope, and it becomes a squirrels worst nightmare. Things I would have changed: This was more of a trip back down memory lane for me. I prefer the same or more power from a single stroke, modern pellet gun. But I still believe the fixed barrel design will be more accurate in general, day to day use. What others should know: If you like a value in a time proven design with the benefit of modern optics, this is hard to beat. If you would rather shoot than pump....there are other choices.
