Things I liked:The build quality of the gun itself it very nice. Metal work was well finished as is the wooden stock. The butt pad is nicely fitted. All in all shots very well, as quiet as advetised. First fifty rounds were a little eradic but it settled down nicely to quarter sized groups after that. Things I would have changed:The trigger is as everyone else says, long and very vauge, but for what it was designed for I would say it performs as designed. The scope, they should not have wasted the materials or time to even build it. I would suggest Crosman delete the scope from the offering, put the money into a little better trigger.
The poor scope just takes away from what is a really nice little air rifle. What others should know:Just get a better scope on day one.
