Things I liked:Light weight, respectable power, looks cool. Things I would have changed:Switch from a spring piston to a gas piston for quieter shots. What others should know:The noise dampener helps a little, compared to a basic air rifle. People complain about the scope, but if you take the time to sight it properly, w/ a comfortable distant from your eye, it'll do the job. All in all a GREAT air rifle for the price.
