Things I liked:This was my first experience with Pyramyd Air and it has been an excellent one. I have owned many air rifles in my life - Im in my mid 50's. This Rifle is pretty incredible - beautifully made and hits hard - very hard! Don't let the moderate cocking effort fool you - when you hit a small animal with this rifle - its going down!
The gun is quite large compared to other spring guns - it feels great in your hands - a formidable weapon! Several posters have mentioned that they wish this gun had a shorter barrel - remember the barrel is a lever - the longer it is, the easier it will be to cock. One could not cock this gun if the barrel was 5 or 6 inches shorter. Its great just the way it is. Things I would have changed:This gun is heavy and I intend to lug it hunting. I would like to see more sling options for spring guns. I don't care for slings that mount around the barrel. I would think that any competent machinist could make a metal sling swivel that would replace the top crank pin on this unit. I know it can be done as I have been personally modifying stuff my whole life. What others should know:Great Gun - A solid performer - I highly recommend you save your pennies and purchase one!
