Things I liked:This is very well built air rifle. Made to last for the long term. It was accurate out of the box. I measured out 100 yards and was able to hit soda cans without a problem every time. After some more testing at this distance I found that there was about a 2 in drop at 100 yards. Not bad in my opinion. This was using the Crossman hollowpoint hunting pellets. The matte finish on this rifle is very nice and durable. Not to mention the looks of it is awesome. Things I would have changed:The ONLY drawback I see to this rifle is the weight. Very heavy, but when you hold this rifle you can tell that its a quality air rifle. I have ran around 500 rounds thru it now and it is getting easier to cock. Out of the box I thought that I may have to get help hehe, but im no youngster either. What others should know:Due to the weight I dont think that this would be a good competition rifle. But for plinking and hunting its just great. Not to mention that its great upper body exercise. I love mine and wouldnt trade it.
