Things I liked:Good quality. Works for all sizes of rifle with a minor design flaw which is not correctable as I see it. See below. Things I would have changed:Form fit the forend and stock loop attachments a little better. What others should know:One size does not fit all. If you don't have a raised cheek piece on your stock the attachment can and will slip down toward the pistol grip. Otherwise a pretty good piece of equipment.
Things I liked:Built for the magnums. Fills a needed gap in the weight range available. Great price. Things I would have changed:Skirts are not as good in my batch as the RWS brand, generally, is but very satisfactory for semi serious shooting. What others should know:Shooting these pellets in a magnum air rifle is a must to get the most out of the pellet. Anything below 700-800 fps will not allow them to expand properly. The 2300S, Gamo Compact, and IZH 46M pistols will tolerate them but accuracy falls off appreciably.
Things I liked:Price relative to quality. These are great. Work just fine in velocities of 600-750 fps for informal plinking. These are my low cost plinkers. Screw top package. Things I would have changed:I would like to see them in 15.0 gr or slightly more to see what they will do in the more powerful rifles. Some deformity in mine at the back end but nothing too bad. What others should know:Out of a powerful rifle at 20 yds these pellets will tumble upon contact in a consistant manner in most medium I tried. At 30 yds they will flatten nicely. They seem to be on the hard side . These pellets hold together well at all speeds.
Things I liked:Accuracy is phenominal. Different pellets may shoot to different impact points but in every case they will be one ragged hole at 25ft. R10s' are best.
Easy to cock and easy to load.
Trigger is perfect right out of the box.
Attention to detail by the manufacturer is excellent. This pistol deserves a nice storage / carrying box.
Grips are very nice and very hard. They look like Oak. That isn't bad. They are easily modified but I'll live with the "as issued" for a while.
Things I would have changed:A safety is always good to have. Taking the bolt out of battery to act as a safety kind of bothers me but I guess it's OK.
Slightly nose heavy but you will quickly forget about that when you shoot the pistol. What others should know:For storage in order to preserve the 2 seals on the bolt, so they are not compressed against the breech and the compression chamber, I release the bolt and place a very small piece of wood under the bolt just enough to prevent movement and keep them off those surfaces. There is no compression on the seals or bolt springs
Things I liked:Style, fit for a large hand, attention to detail (somewhat), and will fit a P38 holster. Things I would have changed:More room for your fingers to pierce the cartridge. Rear sight is a little too wide relative to the width of the front blade sight. What others should know:Replacement or extra mags are not available yet. Crosman says the part number will be C41-001. As of this writing about 2 months in the future. Cost???. Pack???. They don't know.
Forget the advertised velocity but it's plenty fast. It is loud.
Things I liked:Fit, Feel, Finish, attention to detail, single, double action. Did I leave anything out? You fill in the blanks. This is a very fine pistol for the money. Things I would have changed:Perhaps a matte finish?? What others should know:This pistol will fit in an original MAC holster very nicely. Available for less than $10.00. And you will have room for the extra mags when they come available. Pyramid has no idea about extra mag availability at this time. Umarex does not either. Go figure!!
Things I liked:Size of rifle, cocking ease, sights, accuracy, rubber butt plate, trigger, trigger, trigger. Every function was a perfect fit. Carrying ease, shooting ease, I just can't put it down. Fun and functionality all in one package. Things I would have changed:Mine came with a slight blueing blem below the rear sight as if a 1/4 X 1/4 piece of tape was left on and not degreased after removal and before blueing. Result is a lighter shade of blue at that location. 90% of people wouldn't even notice it but I know it's there. What others should know:The HW30S has the Rekord trigger which is preferred over the HW30 with the Perfekt trigger. BSA 2x7x32 scope is the perfect size for this smaller than full size rifle. If you cock the rifle and take the automatic safety off it is necessary to recock the rifle to actuate the safety again. This is by design so I can't complain too much.
Things I liked:Parallax adj. down to 7.5 yards is outstanding. Screw on lens covers can't be beat.. Adjustment knob covers are very good. Clarity and sight image is perfect. Adjustment Indicaters on the scope are easy to read. Finish on the scope is perfect. This is the perfect scope for the right application. Things I would have changed:Can't think of any. What others should know:On another web site this scope is rated as a "good" for it's ability to withstand medium recoil from a springer air gun. The last one I purchased is on a HW30S in .177 and I have had no problems with it. The other two are on Walther lever guns in CO2 and they are just as good after two years of use. I have them mounted on these rifles because they are the perfect size for these "smaller" low or non existant recoil rifles. I'm happy with them.
Things I liked:Look, heft, accuracy, detail. A mansized plinker. Things I would have changed:Rear sliding grip is a little too loose for me. The moving action slide is a pain and rattles too much. It makes it difficult for holster use. What others should know:I finally got tired of the annoyance of the moving action slide and applied a VERY SMALL dab of J&B epoxy weld to the left side of the slide rail at the front. Wipe off any over run and let it set over night. WaLa everything was quiet and solid the following morning. No permanent or visible harm done. Remember a SMALL dab on the left side of the slide. You'll understand better when you look at yours.
Things I liked:Fits my Mak holster perfectly. Feel in the hand. REAL nice pistol. Things I would have changed:Finish is fine but a matte finish might be better. Loose grips but not anything to fret over believe me. What others should know:After 9 months I called Pyramid about spare mags. The girl said none were available and there was no indication as to when they might be available. She also looked it up on the Umarex web sight and said they did not show them as available. Disapointment ! I asked her to put this on her agenda for her next customer service meeting and she said she would. Then I called Umarex directly and talked to Anna who said they indeed had the mags for the Mak, how many did I want !!? Umarex' web sight is not up to date or they are holding back high demand parts for a hot selling pistol. Go figure. Got my extra mags.
