Things I liked:The feel of the gun is great,its heftyness makes it feel like it will last a very long time, the cocking effort is not at all bad i can cock it with one hand, and im only 14!! the price was awsome, 109$ for a gun this powerful and well made? almost unbeliveble! i would recommend this gun to any shooter both young and old who is intrested in accurate and powerful shooting. Really want to hunt small game with this gun beacuse i feel that the acuracy and power are exeptional. Things I would have changed:Only problem i had with this gun was the scope and the acuracy at the beggening, what i mean is that this gun has a break in period, which means that the first 100 or so shots will be inconsistant in acuracy, so calibrating the scope during this time is basically pointless. However affter this period of time the scope was still allitle hard to calibrate, but when i finally set the scope, the gun and scope where right on mark. What others should know:This gun the "optimus" is a very well balanced weapon, it is heavy due to the monte carlo wood frame, in my opinion this is good because it feels more like a real gun, another thing i liked is the small recoli or blowback the gun has affter every shot, it is just another factor that makes the gun alittle more realistic in comparison to an actual gun. I recommend this to men of all ages,defenetly better than the phantom and quest i previosly owned. Happy Hunting or Plinking!!!
