Things I liked:The overall balance of the gun is excellent. I was concerned with it being 45" long, but that length is not apparent when actually using it. The trigger is just beautiful. The sights that came on this rifle are the best fiber optic open sights I've seen yet. Very accurate rifle. Things I would have changed:I'm pretty happy with it just as it is. What others should know:The reach to cock the gun is a little long. I'm a very average sized guy and the reach is about all I can manage. If you have shoulder problems, you might like something a little shorter.
Things I liked:Bright. Easy to adjust. Holds zero well. Reticle is easy to see and focus sharply. I seldom use the illumination feature. Things I would have changed:More eye relief would be helpful with a scope this compact. My shooting is primarily indoors at about 8 meters and the cross hairs are a little thick, but just fine for my short range. When I go outdoors it would be better for cross hairs to be thinner. What others should know:You will likely need setback rings to get this scope far enough back to achieve proper eye relief...I did on my RWS 34.
