Things I liked:Value. Excellent optics. Thin reticle. Low price.
Things I would have changed:I am beginning to tire of Leapers flip open scope caps.
What others should know:I put this scope on my Benjamin Discovery. I feel it is a perfect match as far as size and weight to maintain the characteristics of the rifle. It would also be good on something like a Beeman R7 or Air Venturi Bronco. This scope does not have the nearly useless illuminated reticle so it saves you about $20 or more off the price.

Things I liked:Low price. Wood and metal construction with very little plastic. Beautiful blueing on the receiver. Very nicely contoured rubber buttpad (with white spacer). Crisp two-stage trigger. Nice muzzlebreak, will maintain finish on barrel. Stock feel/gun balance is excellent. Accuracy. Accuracy. Accuracy. No fiber optic sights, they have their place-- but not on this rifle.
Things I would have changed:Rear sight is a compromise to save money. Mine would not adjust low enough to zero at 10 yards without slight modification. A wheel adjustable sight would be nice. The stock was a nice piece of wood, but I am not fond of the light color. A good candidate for a sand/stain-oil/repeat. How about some nice, western style checkering? My rifle gets a might slippery when I'm heardin' them doggies!
What others should know:Use a very light hold with this rifle. Watch the "Artillery Hold" video by Tom Gaylord on the Tips and Tricks page. You will be rewarded with amazing accuracy if your technique is good. I eventually mounted a Leapers 3-9x32 scope with low rings to the rifle to get the most accuracy out of it. My Bronco likes Crosman Premiers 7.9gr pellets in the cardboard box the best among the pellets I tried.
