Things I liked:Reasonably quiet, great for shooting in the confines of suburbia. Nice and accurate right out of the box. I'm sure it will quiet down more once broken in. This is a considerably light rifle for it's size, I feel that one could carry this in the field for extended periods of time without issue. Things I would have changed:The stock, it has some rather sharp edges and rubs on the barrel while cocking, to the point some bluing gets rubbed off. While the trigger is decent, it could stand to shed a pound or two of pull weight. People new to airgunning may have accuracy issues due to the somewhat heavy pull. A better drop-in trigger is available, the CBR trigger from Charlie Da Tuna. I will order one once I have thoroughly tested my replacement rifle. That said, I could easily live with the factory trigger, as it is much better than what comes on most Crosman spring rifles. What others should know:This is a very quiet gun in comparison to other spring rifles. It sounds almost like a staple gun. I had to return my first one and exchange it due to the cocking shoe rubbing on the gas strut. This seems to be a somewhat common issue on rifles using this powerplant, such as the Crosman NPS and Remington NPSS. The only pellets I've tested were Crosman Premier Hollowpoint 14.3g and Premier Domed 14.3g, both shot very well with good accuracy. I will try other pellets in the future.
Things I liked:Consistent weight, soft lead, very few deformed skirts in the 4 tins I purchased. The best sub-14gr domed .22 pellet around. Things I would have changed:A screw-on lid would be nice. What others should know:These are excellent for backyard pest control in low to medium powered airguns. I'm shooting these from a Flying Dragon-tuned Xisico XS-12 with great results. Very effective combo inside of 30 yards for winged and 4-legged vermin alike. They seem to hit with more authority than my previous pesting round, the CPHP 14.3gr.
Things I liked:Great pellet for close range pest removal. I use these with a Flying Dragon XS12 and these are great for pest birds inside of 20 yards with this rifle. They hit with authority, even with my low-powered springer. Very accurate in spite of somewhat bent/deformed skirts. Things I would have changed:Nothing really. You won't get JSB quality in a pellet that costs $3 per tin. I can't complain, very few fliers and great at this price point. What others should know:Bent skirts are easily fixed with a golf tee. Just insert the pointed end and make a small circular motion, wallah, round skirt once again.
