Things I liked:I liked the option to use open sites or a scope. I have never been a fan of scope only rifles since it limits your shooting to daylight only. I would have probably looked at the more expensive rifles but chose this one for the sight option.Have been shooting springers for many years and am impressed with the NP. It cocks smoother and is much quieter. I had no problem with the trigger it is smooth and I will not replace it.I have just over 200 Crossman Premier Pointed pellets through it. Becoming much more accurate now. I was able to hit 8 out of 12 targets the size of a quarter from 30yds. Now that it's broken in, I plan to try some other pellets. Things I would have changed:I think a tube of RMC oil should be included from Crossman. The manual recommends this as the only oil to use and it's hard to find in stores locally. What others should know:If you purchase any break barrel, research the type of oil is recommended and order some with the gun to save on shipping. A .25oz on the web is a little over $5 but the shipping brings it to $10. Seems expensive for something that could be put in an envelope and mailed USPS. I have read all types of info from never oil to use what is recommended. Guess I'll go with what the factory recommends.
A good gun for the money.
