Things I liked:precisely what I needed to mount a scope on Crosman pistol while maintaining sufficient eye relief Things I would have changed:nothing What others should know:could be a better option than cobbling together offset/riser components...especially for spring piston
Things I liked:Balance and "feel" are very good. Trigger is excellent straight from the box. The operation of the integral safety is both effective and convenient to deal with. Repeatable accuracy superb. Things I would have changed:The rear sight could be a bit more robust and have more refinement but this could add to the cost. The top rail could be more like the lower one and accommodate scoping other than dots. Even just a second cross groove would help a lot. What others should know:2 pumps give adequate velocity/energy for many closer targets but 3 pumps are ideal. The 3rd pump takes a bit more effort but is not a dealbreaker. The Alecto is a BIG pistol yet the use of quality polymers make the weight a non-issue. If you want "metal" in other than the necessary mechanism, look for a different pistol. Great value for the price point.
