Things I liked: The Ruger Elite is an all around awesome air rifle. It is heavy and so are my Winchester, Ruger, Remington and Springfield M1Garand deer rifles. It is a well made air rifle and is very comfortable to shoot. After cocking the breakbar the safety automatically engages. That is a nice feature. Overall a very accurate rifle.

Things I would have changed: There is no scope stop. Ruger should have added one. To overcome the lack of a scope stop, simply use the blue breakable locktite and apply it to the hex head screws. Tighten both evenly and your scope will not budge.

What others should know: My rifle shot 5" low even after the elevation knob was maxed out. I placed a shim inside the rear scope mount. The shim raised the scope enough to counteract the issue.
