Things I liked:The stock is better than some high power rifles. The acurracy is excellent after only 150 shots, no spread at 12 yards, cuts the same hole. After sighting in, and trying to break it in, shot and killed a bird eating my seeds in my garden with the first shot. I have never killed anything in my life with the first shot at game. Things I would have changed:The under locking lever has a tendency to come unlatched after firing. Get rid of iron sights all together, and send them along as an installable option, and put screws in the holes. Front sight is awful. For those of you complaining about the plastic trigger, you must not have shot enough different rifles in you time, because this trigger is better than some very expensive powder rifles. It has very little first stage creep, great, crisp release, and low pull weight. What others should know:Get a good scope like the Leapers 3-9X40, TS with locking turrets. This thing has pretty tough recoil, and will jostle the reticle in lesser scopes.
Things I liked:Nice feel of a well made product. Very smooth cocking. I have the RWS 460 Mag, and it is not nearly as smooth to cock as this gun is. It has pretty good power, but mediocre acurracy. The stock needs a butt pad. I try to stand this thing up in a corner, if not on carpet, it slides down the wall. Things I would have changed:Make all decent airguns tapped and drilled for scopes, or have rails, and send the open sights as an end user installable option. I think airguns benefit from scopes more so than open sights. What others should know:This is a great first foray into airgunning. It has such a well made feel. Get a good recoil proof scope, and have fun. Try buying some really cheap pellets, shoot it 500 times, then sight it in with pellets that work with it, and enjoy.
Things I liked:Good reticle stability. Nice clear optics, even when you consider it cost $70. I like the illuminated reticle, especially in lower light conditions. The mil-dot isn't bad either, just need to learn how to use it. Things I would have changed:Gid rid of the flip len covers. Any scope that does not have a side focus(parallax) knob, should not have flip covers. Any time you have to adjust reticle focus, or objective fcus, alot with an air rifle, you have to pull them off, and re-adjust. What others should know:Good airgun scope. I put it on an RWS 460 Magnum, hits anything up to 45 yards, very nice. It rates much higher than my Bushnell Sportsman for $75.
