Things I liked:I liked the look, weight and feel of this gun. Had a nice balance to it. If you didn't know you had a BB pistol in your hand, you would look for some rounds to load it. Things I would have changed:When I first received my Makarov, the forward section of the trigger guard would drop down. Never seen or have had this happen to me before on any air/firearm before. After searching the entire manual, there was no mention of anything that would come close in explaining this problem. I called and emailed Pyramydair several times for an explaination, but never received any response. I guess they were too busy. Anyway, everything else I had ever received from them I have had no problem and experienced good value. Just ashame that we could not have worked this out. I really wanted to keep that gun, but not under those circumstances. What others should know:I never fired it because it appeared to be broken.
Things I liked:Just received this .22 cal version and I immediately purchased a 9x50 scope w/rangefinder. I also purchased four differeent types of .22 pellets with varing weights. I like the balanced weight of 9 lbs and the extra speed loaders that come with it plus makes reloading quick & easy when you need the extra firepower. Tomorrow I sight in the rifle. Things I would have changed:Nothing, this is an awesome looking weapon that I'm sure I will be proud to own. What others should know:I'll get back on this with you later.
Things I liked:What I liked the most was the looks and feel of this .50 cal. It has a nice carry feel to it (if you like to carry a rifle with some heft to it) and I first used a 300 gr pellet on the high power setting using the hard irons (no scope). I first used paper targets at 250 feet and no problem with head shots with a few chest shots. I then mounted a Tasco 3-9 x 50mm scope with a wide angle field of view. At first the scope caused me to hit the ground and missing the target. Needs more adjusting and will get back on this later with you. Things I would have changed:Better "O" rings where you slide the sleeve back on the breech. On my first 9 rounds of 300 gr. pellets both rubber "O" rings broke and had to send into Venturi for replacement repairs of the "O" rings. So far I haven't used any other size pellet weights but will buy some lighter weights to see how this improves accuracy and I think that there may be some barrel droop but not sure yet.
Sure would be nice to get this in semi-auto.
