Things I liked:The mil-dot crosman scope is great. The rifle and scope and very sturdy rings are very light and very durable. The plastic stock is perfect for an adult. The value of this rifle/scope combo is impossible to beat. This rifle shoots HARD. Things I would have changed:I would accurately reflect the FPS. With CPHP I got an average of 940 FPS (after 200 break in shots, some of which were indeed close to 1200! LOUD!) and a SD of 9. Not so great, but again, hard hitting rifle like this is not available for under $100 anywhere else!
I removed the factory spring and piston and replaced them with the crosman nitro piston and piston from a crosman (benjamin) Titan, a .22. The rifles are almost exact clones down to every detail, except the stock and powerplants. The average FPS went down to 920, but the SD is .7 FPS!!! I now have a Leapers SWAT 3-12 x50 sitting 2" over, and can hit playing cards at 70+ yards on a calm day. What others should know: I use this for pest control, and now I can stay in the shade (and near the cooler) and reach the entire garden. I am basically lazy so this suits me just fine. Wonderful gun even without the modifications. If you buy this gun, you must wait 100-200 shots to sight it in, and wait 500 to 1000 shots for the trigger to settle in. My trigger was abysmal at first, now it is a pleasure. Crisp and light.
