Things I liked:Powerful gun. PA is a great company and am happy with their customer service. Things I would have changed:I have found this to be a difficult gun to shoot accurately. After much trial and error, I've found that an artillary hold is crucial, as the gun will shoot all over the place if you actually put the butt of the rifle firmly onto your shoulder. As others have stated, the trigger gives you no indication of when its about to break. You just try to pull back progressively and smoothly until the bang surprises you. It's also quite loud - not sure I'll be able to use it in my backyard. What others should know:If you want a backyard pest control rifle that's easy to shoot out of the box, this isn't it. If you are patient and don't mind the weight, trigger, noise, and challenge to shoot accurately, then you will have a powerful airgun. I would personally have traded 100 fps for a better overall package.
Things I liked:Powerful. Handsome stock. Things I would have changed:Very loud, even after being fully broken in with 500 pellets. Rifle is very, very hard to shoot accurately. You need an artillery hold with a very consistent grip, or your groups will be wildly off (even from a bench). What others should know:Watch the accompanying PA video. If you want something that's going to be fun and easy to shoot, this isn't it. If you just want the most bang out there, this is the gun for you.
Things I liked:Good trigger. Quiet. Nicely priced. Things I would have changed:Well, out of the box, it could only shoot through one side of a soda can and could not group well enough at 10 yards to even call the shots a "grouping." Spent many hours online with customer service and reading airgun blog how-to's to optimally adjust the hammer tension and stroke, and metering screw. But to no avail. I suspect it suffered from severe valve lock. It's going back for an exchange - hope this was just a dud and the replacement will live up to the hype. What others should know:I will amend this review pending my results with the 2nd gun.
