Things I liked:This gun shoulders nicely and the stock allows for a very steady hold. The gun has a rather pleasant balance and handles like a joy. A really fun piece to tote around for plinking and varmit control. Things I would have changed:The stock sights are, as I anticipated, rather inadequate. I ordered the steel breach kit with mine which REALLY increacses the flexability of this gun. I am waiting for the Crosman Mim sight to be available. That should put this gun on my "first to grab" peg! Until then a Bug Buster scope suits these eyes just fine. (Knocks hickory nuts off the tree at a really far piece, should do the same fer a squirrel) What others should know:Pump grip is a bit noisy, OK if you are keeping an eye on a young'un practicing. A few minutes with a rasp and a bit of rubber tape sure fixes that with no visible change to the appearance. The catch for the wonderful removeable stock is, at first, a little sticky. Be sure to check that it fully extends. It will work better the more it is used. The stock sights work well for cans out to 20-30 feet, but as I noted this gunn is capable of really much greater accuracy with better sights. I'm no gunsmith, fer sure, and I put the steel breach on mine sitting in my easy chair in about 15 minutes including the time I spent pickin' up stuff I dropped cause I didn't read the instructions first. Think by now I'd know better.
Things I liked:Lot easier to install than I anticipated. Was acually kinda fun. Much better quality than the price would suggest. Things I would have changed:Nothing, Crosman really has this one figured out. OK, maybe a bold handle option for us old goats with gimpy ol' fingers.... jus' sayin'. What others should know:You WANT this on your gun if you aint got one!
