Things I liked:It fits. Things I would have changed:Increased strength to prevent bending. I haven't found a suitable material that resists bending, though stainless steel is close. What others should know:This is an exact fit replacement for when you bend the cocking rod, which is fairly easy to do if you're not careful. It's rather expensive, in that one could purchase 3/16 stainless rod inexpensively and make your own, if you have skill at making your own threads. The thread on this rod is metric, 5X0.8. I suggest using a small metal working lathe for straight threads. Hand-threading is very difficult to do without "weaving" back and forth.
In addition, when installing the rod, be very careful of alignment so you don't bend the newly installed rod. The lever must be in the almost-retracted position for proper alignment. The lever should have a very slight resistance for proper lever stowage at the end of the cocking procedure.
Things I liked:Everything you need! Things I would have changed:For the price, include more cleaning pellets, larger bottles of oil. Eliminate the targets and lead pellets. What others should know:This should be a "sho-nuff" maintenance kit, not a sample of various-use items. As a maintenance kit, it has the cleaning pellets, rod, and oil. It seems to be an afterthought to throw in a couple sample cans of lead pellets and a card of targets. I would suggest leaving out the lead pellets and targets and stick to the oil and cleaning pellets; and reduce the price! Or, leave the price the same and increase the amount of cleaning pellets and oil! Nice kit, though.
Things I liked:Consistency in manufacture, performance. Things I would have changed:Not a thing. What others should know:Excellent pellets which have about 15% more penetration than 7.0 grain wad-cutters when shooting into a phone book!
