Things I liked: Nice stock. Very comfortable to hold with good hand position. Very good trigger for a $90 rifle. Two-stage with clean take-up and then a clean break. Very accurate. I was able to shoot one-hole groups at 10 yards from a free-standing position. This also speaks well of the stock because it allows you to maintain a comfortable stance. I didn't chronograph it - but it sure seems like its kicking the pellets out with some real force.

Things I would have changed: I like open sights and this rifle has fiber optic sights that are nice and clear. They are, however, made of plastic and very easy to knock out of alignment. The sights need to be sturdier.

What others should know: Very good value for the money. Good trigger, good stock, good accuracy. Not quiet. Makes quite a "CLANG!" when you pull the trigger. Be careful where your hands are when you shoot. The piston releases with some real force and if your forward hand is in the wrong place - it will hurt.
