Things I liked:Easy to cock, accurate like no other (even with out iron sights I was able to aim down the barrel and hit 5 squirrels). Nice scope for long range shooting. Good power. Unlike my friend Gamo gun the scope stays put. On his gamo gun, even shot the scope moves back, this gun nothing. The mounts stay solid. Things I would have changed:I would like it to be a bit lighter, but I feel like the heavier build will make it last longer or be stronger over all. The weight isn't bad, but being really skinny, standing and aiming (no support) is a bit of a challenge to line up right. I guess it means I need to work out. What others should know:I got a 1/4 dove rail to weaver rail mount (small one for $7 off Amazon) and threw a red/ green dot scope on the rifle. Its better for suburban back yard shooting or 10 - 15 yards. The scope is great when I need to shoot far, but this gun paired with a red dot (sighted in) NOTHING survives in my cross hairs.
