Things I liked: The size of this rifle was perfect for my 10 yr olds first air rifle. When he opened it on his birthday he was the envy of all his friends. I was not a fan of the "blonde" wood but he loves it. Actually its starting to grow on me too.

Things I would have changed: I was extremely disappointed with the open sites. I have never seen such a worthless site on any gun including rifles in the $50 range. I really wanted to teach my son to shoot with open sites before moving on to a scope. Dont get me wrong, if you want to hit a can you could. We shoot mostly at paper so you can see where each shot lands. Trying to "fine tune" these sights to hit bullseye is next to impossible.. I feel if your going to market this rifle as a "youth" or beginners" air riflle then good open sites should be standard.

What others should know: I found that RWS Diablo Basics shot the best in this rifle. Which is good news because they are one of the least expensive. I tried several others at twice the price but none out performed them. After putting on a scope and stripping off the factory sites this rifle looks awesome. My soon is consistently grouping 5 shots within a nickel size circle at 10 meters. I couldnt be prouder. The double blade trigger is interesting but seems to work good.

Things I liked: These pellets are consitent and shot great at 10 meters. I have not found a better pellet to shoot at twice the price and I have shot alot of differant brands. These pellets are clean compared to others I have used.

Things I would have changed: Provide a screw top lid.

What others should know: These pellets seem to work best for me in my air rifles that shot 600 FPS or less. I use them in my FWB 300S and my sons Bronco. I havent found any thing that out performs them. They do not shot as good in my Gamo CFX. I have not been able to find any wadcutters to shot good in the CFX. Give them a try. At $6.00 a can you cant beat it.
