Things I liked:Power: Awesome. I purchased this for Grackle and Pigeon control and it has done the job with spades.
Accuracy: After initial sitein it has been a tack driver. I was expecting to have a 250 to 500 shot shoot in period till it settled down. It shot right out of the box....very suprised!!
Craftsmanship: Incredible!! Mind you this is my first adult air rifle so this may be the norm for this type of air rifle. But it is a nice peice and well made! I have read about the flimsy trigger but I have no problem with it what so ever....once I learned the creep of it before the break it is easy to predict when it will break.
Scope: I like this scope and once I locktited the screws there hasn't been any problem. Shoots where I aim every time. I have taken grackle with it off of the power lines out to 60 yrds from a support (usually the fence) and the 22 cal 14.3 grn pellet drops them like a rock. Things I would have changed:Nothing at his point. What others should know:This is a nice air rifle. Magnum power and it is heavy but that keeps it steady!!
Firm cocking but manageable. I personally break the barrel and load the pellet before I start the cocking. I saw a video of a break barrel rifle that was discharged wil trying to load a pellet in it......took have of his knuckle of the thumb off!! OUCH!!!!
