Things I liked: I really like the stylish looks and the quality craftsmanship of this gun. It is a real beauty. The air reservoir is easy to fill, and the pressure hookup and gauge are reliable. The gun is very comfortable to shoot; stock and dimensions perfectly fit my shooting style and positions. I like the many different power or velocity settings -- allows me to precisely adjust velocity for different circumstances. Accuracy is unbelievable -- shoots one-hole groups at 30 yards. The 19 in. Walther barrels are truly works of art.

Things I would have changed: The scope mount track should be raised just a little so that when a standard American scope is fitted to the rings, it doesn't collide with pellet magazine. I had to add a few strips of electrician's tape to the inside of the scope rings to lift the scope above the magazine. I'm sure that I could have purchased taller mounts, but they weren't available at the local stores. I would prefer a bolt action instead of the side lever, and I know that the bold action is available on the competition model.
