Things I liked:Previous reviews mentioned poor quality of the wood finish. However, my gun was flawlessly made. Gorgeous to look at, light enough to shoot for hours, and more accurate than I could have expected. I'm shooting at 25 yards and only my lack of skill keeps me from getting quarter-size hits. On a rifle rest (which I use to sight in the scope), I can consistently hit the bulls-eye of a paper target. Fairly quiet and no kick. Very easy to load. I think the trigger is actually better than that of my Beeman R7 rifle, which is known to have a superb trigger. I'm getting 30+ accurate shots from one CO2 cartridge. I'm using Crosman Premiere Ultra Magnum pellets and honestly there is no reason for me to ever change. I sold the included Centerpoint 3-9x32 scope to get one of higher magnification and because the crosshairs of the Centerpoint were somewhat fuzzy when using the illumination feature. Nice of Crosman to include a high set of rings because they were definitely needed. The only issue was that the handle was a bit loose and tightening the two screws which attach it to the stock didn't do the trick. I called Crosman, whose Customer Service is excellent (no wait time, informed tech support person)). She told me what to do and the fix took about two minutes. As for buying from PyramydAir, I got delivery in two days with free shipping. Rifle was packed extraordinarily well. Things I would have changed:Crosman should include a better quality scope. The one it comes with (a Centerpoint 3-9x32) sells for just $50 at PyramydAir, which tells you something of its quality. I would also like to see the safety automatically engaged after each shot. Lastly, Crosman should improve their quality control, in that they should never have packed my gun without checking the handle first and tightening it before packing and mailing it. What others should know:Overall, a phenomenal rifle -- light, accurate, and beautiful.
Things I liked:I bought this scope to replace the Centerpoint 3-9x32 scope that came with my Crosman 2250XE rifle. First, the Quality of this scope is top-notch. You can tell wight away from the look and feel of it. Adjustments for elevation and left-to-right are easy due to the large knobs. Whereas other manufacturers make you unscrew a cover that allows access to the adjustment knobs, UTG uses a locking nut that you easily loosen and then turn the knob to make the adjustment. After zeroing in the scope, UTG allows you to set your new positions to zero using the supplied allen wrench. Very easy to sight in. Flip-up lens caps are top quality. Using the illumination feature generally works well, as it's easy to turn on and off, and the one-touch buttons are much nicer than turning knobs. I like the fact that the scope remembers your previous setting the next time you turn it on, and that it will turn off automatically in an hour if you forget to do it manually. Nonetheless, the system is effective and easy to use. All told, this is an excellent scope especially for the price I paid. Things I would have changed:My only gripes are that the scope is a bit heavy (23 oz.) and that the colors are no way as bright as the manual or the PyramydAir description would have you believe. For example, I am unable to duplicate the bright yellow and orange as the manual shows. What others should know:This scope is a great replacement for the scope provided with the Crosman 2250XE and for the money, a great scope to choose for any rifle.
