Things I liked:these pellets have unparalleled penatration Things I would have changed:nothing What others should know:they say these pellets are not meant for precision air rifles but I have no problem at all shooting them with my Rws model 48 or my Gamo shadow, I am blasting thru everything I shoot at with dead on accuacy and stunning penatration.
Things I liked:Looks great, very POWERFUL for a springer It took me a while to site in the fiber optic sights to shoot accuratly at 30 yards but once I lifted it off of its bipod and held it with a military hold it made all the difference finally hitting center target. 50 yards and beyond you need a scope well after this thing destroyed 2 good airgun scopes I bought a leapers 4x16x44 swat scope with adjustable turrets leapers high rings took about 20 shots to sight it in only cause I wanted to see which pellet it liked best which was the h&n 10.34 grain baracuda hunter hollow points some reviews on this gun said they could not get this gun to group accuratly but Im getting 10 shot groups I can cover with a nickle from 50 yards. Its by far a gun that shoots good right out of the box but If you are determined to make it shine as I did It definatly will.
Things I would have changed:It should of come with a decent scope since it ruined 2 of mine;-) it should have came with a better bipod and at least a sling for 300.00 What others should know:its a big heavy gun but can be tamed if shot properly dont grap it tight I put my elbows on the picnic table or kneeling put my elbow on my knee just lay the gun in my hand til I get the balanced weight aim and fire. I see all these company's copying the wrong spec's for this gun as 1000 fps when it is 1200 fps I get over 1400fps with pba ammo and with gamo ballistic tip pellets it shoots clean through 2x4's and nickles. I tried with my rws mod.48 1150 fps and my ruger air magnum 1200 fps they come close but no cigar the air magnum puts a bump on the other end of the 2x4 but not through it and almost through the nickle but not quite. so dont believe the 1000 fps false claims going around on this gun its a copied mistake.
