Things I liked:Very realistic feel, albeit quite a bit lighter than the real thing. Things I would have changed:TRIGGER! God, it's awful. It's double action and quite bearable at first but to suddenly it becomes really heavy at the end (after the BB goes into the chamber) and feels like a 13lbs trigger pull. Absolute junk! What others should know:Will be good for firearm training and safety techniques and plinking, do not expect accuracy as the trigger will ruin your best shot. Granted this is not a target pistol, so don't expect it to behave like one. There are tons of other airguns in this price range that don't suck
Things I liked:It may not win matches but at this price point nothing will. I am not the greatest shot but I can make a 1 inch whole at 10m. Trigger is quite good, may become even better after the break-in.
It is a bit large for my hands, but single action shooting is very comfortable. I have to adjust my grip in double action, but I don't see much difference in my accuracy between single and double action. Just work that trigger.
I am getting about 70 shots/co2 cartridge.
Adjustable rear sight is a welcome feature on such a low priced gun (and I did adjust it, it shot a little low for me at 10m). Things I would have changed:The plastic shroud and faux-rail with the front sight feel pretty cheap and there's a bit of wobbling. But it does not affect the shooting.
The hinge is very tight, I am assuming it will break in.
The crown of the barrel looks a little damaged on the outside on mine but it does not affect anything.
Not sure how long the plastic indexer will last, would be nice if it were metal as well as the rotary clips, but it would add to the cost of the gun What others should know:Are you kidding me? Get this pistol if you haven't already!
Things I liked:Great starter and plinking rifle. Not too small for adults either, but 6'4' shooters may have a problem acquiring the sights.
Easy to cock and shoot all day.
Not too hold sensitive, as far as I can tell, at least I haven't found any particular hold or position that gave me better accuracy, trigger control and breathing are what works with this rifle every time.
Not sure about what groups it is capable of - I am not that great a shooter, but I can call virtually all my fliers with this rifle, so, it's me. Things I would have changed:Throw away the scope and make it $10 less What others should know:The scope is junk, just like other reviewers said, but this doesn't surprise me one bit, so no star taken. Use open sites, they are awesome. The sites came adjusted way too high, so sight in at shorter distances first (at 15ft I was 4-5 inches off).
Crosman Competition (milk carton) pellets are too loose for this rifle. They come out sometimes before I can close the gun and get crushed and block the port. Not good for the seals. Pay attention and slowly close and lock barrel pointed *downward*. Easy when you are standing but a bit awkward while seated/prone. The best way would be to use a pellet seater adjusted as deep as you can, I experimented with different depths and can't tell if it affects the accuracy one bit.
