Things I liked: The Ruger Air Hawk is my first pellet rifle. I have shot many large caliber rifles for many years. I love to shoot. The rifle is just fine. All metal parts have nice dark blueing. The wood stock has a nice finish. Fixed sights are good. Have trouble with the scope rings. I am replacing them with a one piece ring set. The accuracy will get better with heavy pellets. Lighter pellets have fliers with the power of this weapon. I am 70 and my sight is not the greatest, but with this rifle I do fine. I don't think you could go wrong with the purchase of The Ruger Air Hawk
Things I would have changed: One piece rings
What others should know: Clean rifle before you shoot it. Thghten all screws. Lock-tite all scope screws. If you don't the scope will shoot loose. Leave the scope stop in place. I over tighten the base screws, and damaged them. Did not hurt the rifle groves. Got hold of the company, and they sent me a new set free. The scope is 1/4 inch adjustments. At 25 yards it takes 8 to 10 clicks to move it a inch
Things I liked: This pellets ar fine. Still lighter than I need for my Ruger Air Hawk
Things I would have changed: I ordered the 9.3 gr. Got the 8.3
What others should know: The pellets are fine.
