Things I liked:The only sound you hear is the firing mechanism. Very nice sound baffling. Quality piece for the money. Nice balance. Dropped a gray squirrel at 15 yards with the first shot!!!! Things I would have changed:None that come to mind. What others should know:The packing of this item was terrible. Both outer and inside Gammo boxes had been opened. The inside box was flopping around inside the outer box. Inside Gamo box was held together with scotch tape, which had opened. Customer service said Gamo boxes were opened for accuracy of contents. That's great and appreciated, but at least some sort of notification on the box would have been appropriate. Everything was in the Gamo box inside. A little better TLC with the shipping would be nice.
