Things I liked:Love it. Out of the box shot quarter size group (single action and braced ), strudy construction.
Use to work on trigger control practice and to relax. Things I would have changed:Would like it in 4" What others should know:I like crosman. Have a model 1, and 2200 magnum in 22 cal. Rifles. Both over 30 years old and work fine. The new 357 seams better, from what I remember, than it was25 years ago.
From talking with the air gunsmith always use a drop of crosman pellgun oil on top of CO2 power let, and take time between shots, the CO2 is COLD and may freeze the seal
Things I liked:It's faster than hand loading Things I would have changed:I believe if the column was more narrow it would feed better. It would be nice if it came with a funnel to fill it. What others should know:If you look you'll see not to depress the piston down too far while loading it, also you need to keep it pressed it firmly against the magazine. Play with it for a while you'll get use to it
