Things I liked:very realistic gun. fun as all getout to just plink things with. Nice weight and balance. Things I would have changed:Double action trigger pull is a MILE long and hard. Single action is shorter but still stiff with an annoying click a second before the hammer falls. What others should know:City boys be aware -- very realistic gun -- would not be a good idea to be waving this thing around in your yard. Unless you want to be on the local news!
Things I liked:Its quieter than most spring rifles. Urban shooting -- Be careful a "discerning" ear can easily make out the sound but with a little background noise (weedwacker, lawnmower etc.) the report blends right in. I have not tried alloy pellets -- I am sure they make more noise. Things I would have changed:Scope, Barrel droop
I have ordered a CDT trigger we shall see
Dont waste your $10 on the ten for ten --- "spring guns" diesel so bad while breaking in the only thing the 10 for 10 tells you is --yeah it fires! What others should know:The barrel droop is very pronounced! I put a Bugbuster scope on and could not get it to shoot high enough. I had to install UTG's Scope Elevation Compensator Mount that finally got me on target! For a gun that has NO open sites I dont know why the barrel droop has to be so great. The scope that came with it is non variable magnification so it sited in "ok" without the compensator.
Things I liked:Only a year or two into shooting pellet guns. I had a couple of springers and found them very difficult to shoot consistently. (I am sure strictly my technique -- or lack there of)This gun is amazing what you put the cross hairs on it hits! Its a squirrel killing machine!It's as quiet as it gets --- if there is anything that is quieter it probably doesnt have the same punch. Not having the scope killing recoil of a springer means you can also put just about any type of scope on it. Things I would have changed:Putting the safety in front of the trigger in such a manner doesnt make sense to me?? If you have sausage fingers you might find it a little difficult releasing it. Plus I find myself -- without looking -- pulling back on it to see if the safety is set -- this is not good because the potential is there to put your finger behind the safety and actually pull the trigger inadvertently! What others should know:As everyone has said in other posts (or at least thought it) Using a hand pump is a slight workout! I weight about 165lbs and don't have any problem getting it to 3000 psi. but it definitely makes you appreciate each shot though!
