Things I liked:My first springer ... At first there was a learning curve. Open sights grouping was awful. Scope helped. The. I tried JSB Diablo Heavy pellets did a tear down, clean, deburr and lube and it shot like a different gun. Hitting 1.5" square blocks at 46 yards and 32oz Gatorade bottles at 100 yards. I may try open sights again to see how it does. Things I would have changed:I didn't mind but it is rough out of the box. With some tinkering it will shoot very well. Just needs some TLC. If you are mechanically inclined do the tear down and it will perform very very well for you. What others should know:It is all about the right pellet and outstanding trigger control. For mine the JSB Heavy Diablo 10.34 grain pellets provides the opportunity for 100 yard shots with the stock scope. Planning on upgrading the scope now because mine doesn't want to hold zero very well. Something else to tinker with.
