Things I liked:I have owned this gun for so long- 4and 1/2 years. I have pumped aproximately 30,000 rounds through it with no significant jams or breaks that were unfixable. This gun will take any beating you throw at it. It is accurate, high powered, fast cocking, and overall the most reliable gun I have ever had in my veteracy of airsoft. Overall, for the price, an unbelievable gun. Things I would have changed:After 25,000 rounds the stock screw became loose, but is easily fixable with 1/12 turn of it. I would really change nothing about this gun except to put on sights, but it is so accurate even at 331/2 yards (6 inch spread on eight inch target after 10,000rounds) that anyone who can hit the broadside of abarn can learn to use it. What others should know:There have been numerous problems with this gun, but all because of how hard I am on it ( regualr airsoft wars in the rain and snow). Trigger broke, mechanism broke, spring jammed, barrel clogged, magazine dirtied, magazine jammed, RIS broken, barrel fell off, pump fell off, weight fell off, pistol grip chipped, barrel chipped. Take it from a veteran airsofter- this is the gun you want.
Things I liked:Heavy. Feels great. Extreme power. Very accurate. Very cheap. 150 round break in period. Things I would have changed:Is hard to cock at first. Could be better accuracy to rival the RWS 460/350, but good for price I guess. Really loud, but it just makes the gun feel better I guess. What others should know:Kicks badly. Fun to shoot though.
Things I liked:Pretty powerful. I didnt chrono it or anythin but man it can devastate with 20 pumps (be careful not to wear the seal down). Its very light. Things I would have changed:Looks/Feels like a toy. Pellets are not accurate in it. Would not reccommend for shots over 15m or so. What others should know:Great value for money. Its a lot of fun, and rivals some low level breakbarrel guns' accuracy. Its very durable and reliable. This is not the gun i use for hunting, this is the one i use for soda cans and hair spray. A lot of fun, you'll enjoy it.
Things I liked:Almost nothing. These are horribly inaccurate in my Benjamin Marauder, Big Cat, Ruger Air Magnum, AND Benjamin 397. Terrible. Things I would have changed:Everything. Make them not complete garbage. They are just way too light to be accurate. What others should know:Speed does not equal power or lethality. I mean these pellets can't hit a soda can at 20 yards.
Things I liked:When I first got this gun, I was a little skeptical of PCP. I have been shooting springers for a while, and this is my first PCP. I bought the hand pump, a nice scope, and this rifle. After 100+ dead pest squirrels, 200+ dead invasive birds, and 50+ instances of larger game put down with this in .177, I am completely satisfied with this rifle. Phenomenal accuracy with most any pellet and Very little maintenance (I've had my gun for 5 years and never even cleaned it - it still shoots 1/2" groups at 60 yards and same hole groups at 50 and closer. It's mind-boggingly quiet, even though mine is not depinged as the newer ones are, so the new ones are even quieter, I guess? I get 50 good shots out of a full fill. Easy to fill with the hand pump, too. The bolt action and magazine feel cheap and plasticy, but both work like a dream. Perfect weapon for hunting because it is exceptionally quiet, has a fast repeater, and delivers a lot of force on target while maintaining accuracy. Things I would have changed:When I got my rifle (2009-2010) the model came with a horrendous wooden stock. I mean, this is a discount PCP and all, but for $500 I should be getting a decent stained stock. The stock is cheap and chips easily, and it will look like crap if you don't watch every branch you pass by while you're out and about. The bolt and magazine feel fake, but work fine. I'd like it if both of these were made of metal instead of plastic. Also, this gun is pretty big and heavy, so all day hunting with it is a bit of a pain. If it was lighter and smaller, that'd be nice. What others should know:HANDLE THIS GUN CAREFULLY! The wood on the stock chips extremely easily. Besides that really, this is the best gun I've ever owned for the price. If you have something under 15lbs you want to kill, this gun, even in .177, will do the job.
