Things I liked: Excellent accuracy. Using Beeman Kodiak HP 10.34gr pellets, I was grouping within 1/2" (5 shot groups) at 20 yds off of a sandbag within 10 minutes of sighting it in. Not as good with lighter weight pellets like Crosman Premier 7.9gr HPs or the Beeman 7.2gr HPs but still about 3/4”. I put a 4x12 Leaper's scope on it and it is surprisingly good so far, no issues. I love the wood finish, it’s more of a matte than glossy. Whacked over 30 chipmunks with it in 2 months, they are what I bought the rifle for. I’ve had a population explosion in the last two years. I can’t comment on the durability because I only had it a few months but it appears to be a very good, high quality rifle. It is heavy but that helps stability.
Things I would have changed: Larger and/or more Allen screws for better anchoring of muzzle brake/cocking handle. It loosens up way too easily, after only a few shots, and it really affects accuracy…Loctite definitely helps here. Glad I read the other reviews here so I knew what to look for. The safety is a little hard to get to under the scope if you need to reset it, it needs to be larger to get your fingers on it.
What others should know: Barrel droop if you set it down too hard on a sandbag. Trigger is awesome out of the box, I haven’t had the need to adjust it yet. Accuracy is outstanding. The finish and workmanship are top-notch. I am very pleased. This is exactly what I wanted. Kudos to Pyramyd for fast, free shipping (3 days) and great airgun reviews, it makes selection of the right air rifle for your needs much easier.
