Things I liked:I like ANY permutation of the 13xx line, and this is no exception, sturdy,easy to mod, powerful,accurate great new forearm, takes down and assembles well..I have had none of the "shaky stock" syndrome that some reviewers have mentioned. Things I would have changed:Ummm, nothing really, it is at a fair price, and the backpack and other geegaws are cheap, but they work and can easily be upgraded --- especially the first aid kit and backpack. You probably have an old bookbag or laptop case laying around - use that to store the rifle and stock, either will give better protection to the sights and thinner parts of the stock casting, Add a couple of pellet pouches with your favorite pellets in 'em, add some military surplus hardware to the first aid, a couple of cliff bars and transfer whatever gear that is likely to get dragged through the mud to the Crosman pack and you're off to the races. What others should know:In our headlong dash to buy expensive PCP gear, we often forget that virtually any springer or multi-pump gun can be modded for very reasonable money to exact humane kills on some pretty tough medium game, especially if we quit overlooking .20, .25 and .30 --- yes .30, PCP only at the moment, but, who knows. I myself will gladly leap into PCP when: the power goes up, the price goes down and somebody comes up with a 20 or 28 Gauge PCP shotgun, even a muzzleloading light steel shot trap gun.
