Things I liked:this is an amazingly amusing gun. it is accurate, esp for the price, and very very easy cocking, which is important to me as i am 70. i paid $99 for it and i just don't think you can find more fun for so little money. also, i love that the stock can be adjusted. loading is very easy too. Things I would have changed:the trigger is good but i would love a better trigger. at present there is some first stage distance in the trigger but it is predictable. second stage is fine. still more adjustments would be good, though that would add to the cost. some complain of the plastic; there is not much, other than the stock, and that is very stable. What others should know:i can not think of a single gun that is great for both new shooters as well as skilled shooters. this is a pickle of a gun. i put a scope on it and i shoot targets at 50 yards. yes, 50 yards. the scope helps my poor old eyes but the gun has enough power to go the distance. for the money, every airgunner should have one of these. just so you know, i also shoot an izh 46m for which i have a shoulder stock. no, the 60 is not in the same league because the 46m trigger is just a whisper and a breath to shoot. but even so, the 60 is just plain fun. btw- the 46m also shoots to 50 yards and gosh is it accurate. baikal=pickles of fun.
