Things I liked:Unbelievable fit and finish, world class accuracy, excellent trigger, beautiful stock, not much else I can complement on this rifle. It is springer perfection in the sport class for sure. This is an heirloom quality air gun without equal.
Things I would have changed:The small rubber "cocking buffer" tends to break or fall off the shroud but I like the look of it without being installed anyway. No major issues found.
What others should know:The only problem I have is inside 25 yards it tends to put the pellets through ruffly the same hole. Makes it hard to know if you hit the target or not. I would recommend a high power scope of at least 12x or more to take full advantage of this wonderful air rifle's accuracy.

Things I liked:Amazing value and accuracy for the money. Perfect "quality" youth and training rifle. I gave this one to my 10 year old almost a year ago so I thought it was time to post a review of a "broken in" Bronco. After struggling with the factory rear sight I opted to install my trusty Williams aperture sight on the dovetail. This is the perfect fix for the poor stock rear sight and allowed this rifle to show it's true colors. After gaining experience with the peep sight and learning trigger and breathing control I decided to get him an inexpensive scope to allow him to take his accuracy skills further. The 3-9x32mm Centerpoint scope is a perfect value matched scope for this Bronco. Comes complete with 11mm dovetail rings and a illuminated mill-dot reticle for a great price. With this combination I have been able to achieve 3/8" groups at 25 yards very consistently. Been enjoying this one so much it is my go to rifle for sub 35 yard plinking and target shooting. Trained my ex-wife how to shoot with this one and now she is an excellent shot with all my air rifles. Very good trigger with neat double blade design that offers the feel of a good two stage setup at a much lower cost. Breaking quite clean and consistently at about 2 pounds this is quite a bit better than most rifles at this price range by far. Easy to cock at around 18 pounds my 10 year old son, now almost 11, has never had a problem cocking and loading this rifle. Best bang for buck in youth air rifles, great job folks!
Things I would have changed:Only the crappy rear sight should be trashed for an improved click adjustable open version from the factory. Otherwise an aftermarket peep sight or scope will fix you right up for little money.
What others should know:I found the H&N Field Target Trophy 8.64 grain with a 4.50mm head size so far shoots the best in this rifle. Chrony coming from PA in a few days and I will post / update with ballistic numbers soon. If you want a "real" air rifle that can even out shoot dad and keep the entire family outdoors and enjoying shooting sports look no further than the Air Venture Bronco from Pyramyd Air. I think Tom Gayloard and Gene Salvino got these guys in Mexico to keep their quality control tight as this air gun at this price is far and away better than the Chinese built versions I have seen. Mendoza is doing a bang up job down there making these and apparently are keeping up the good work. At first I wanted to rate this a 4 star overall but it honestly deserves the 5 all day long. Thank you for bringing this to the US market PA. Excellent rifle!
