Things I liked:Clarity and features exceeds the price of this scope. The illumination, zoom, construction, TAP feature and side wheel are all user friendly. You need not change your grip when aquiring a target, just simply use your thumb or your fingers to reach the sidewheel and pull the trigger. Light weight for its class and quality fit and finish as well as ruggedness. The W/E adjusters will blow you away on how easy it is to adjust on the fly when the target is moving. You need no tools to do/adjust zeroing. Things I would have changed:Flip top caps quality makes this scope look cheap (get them made elswhere please Leapers folks). Please make better ones or dont include them. The scopes you make are way better quality than the covers you include. What others should know:I use this to hunt and it never fails. Zeroing this scope is a breeze on any distance due to the no tools needed, jjust flick the lock ring on the W/E. I have the big brother 8-32X56 mounted on my TX200 mk3 .177 cal for FT/hunting as well. Get a one piece mount it works well.
Things I liked:Solid mount and does not get any square than this when mounted. This is way better than the two piece mounts on any springer. I have tried a few and went back to this affordable one piece solid as can be mount.PERIOD. Things I would have changed:nothing What others should know:Mount it loosely and push down on the half rings while gently tightening the clamping screws until snug. Adjust the pin stop and observe the movment and carefull not to move the rear part of the mount. Then tighten the clamping screw and retighten the pin stop snug to get a firm hold on the stop groove. Mount the scope and zero it. Yes that simple.
Things I liked:Das air rifle !!!
Weight and the infinite adjusting of the trigger and trigger feel and the shorter barell look with the muzzle break. The way it performs for the prices is comparable to my TX200 MK3. Same hole shots infact 9 out of 10 at ten meters is a testament for an awesome rifle like this is one. Shooting on a standing stance is more cntrolable than my other high price rifles. The craftmanship of this rifle is worth more than what they charge for the it. Get one and compare it to any Gamo rifle and you be the judge. Challenge any springer after break in and you will understand why this is such a nicer option. Things I would have changed:Need a rubber butt pad and a better scope mount. The quality /finish on the scope base is not up to par on this gun at all. What others should know:Looks like an assualt rifle with picatinny rail and all black is a plus.
Get a better scope with 4-16X40 or 50 or 56 AO with either 1 inch tube or the better yet 30mm with the lowest possible Weaver style mounting and match it with the UTG picatinny rail droop compensator (get the one for the 48 with less compensation 17" at 20 yards, that works better coz the 34 one is too much due to the shorter barrel).
Break in on the gun is at 1000 shot at least and from there everything smooths out.
Trigger is so adjustable it gets dangerously light so be carefull. The plastic trigger is no big deal as it feels like the metal as it releases so dont even worry about that. Replace it to metal if you like.
This rifle fires so predictable that you will not need to tune it, tune it if you have extra $$$ but about 1000 shots later and it all settles nice and gets more accurate.
Hold sensitive you might ask? Find the way you want to hold it and zero it from there and it will hold same hole shots. The weight of the nose is not as bad as the regular RWS34. This is more balanced than the others.
Pellets I shoot Crossman premiers in a brown box light and heavy it likes them both. The cocking is heavy at first but settles to a much lighter after break in. I will do a blog on this gun for sure.
