    Things I liked:Comfortable fit. These are great for taking notes, inspecting and loading pellets without changing to my reading glasses.

    Things I liked: I purchased .22cal about a year ago. First thought was very front heavy. I cleaned barrel and shot about 30 rounds. The trigger is gritty and my guess at about 8 pounds. Disasembled rifle and polished surfaces of trigger mechanism.(luckily read a review that said trigger pins will easily fall out, I used electrical tape to secure them}} Used loctite on all screws in reassembly. Trigger smoothed out but still around 6 pound pull, maybe a hair more. Mounted scope (great article on PA by Mr. Gaylord on mounting scopes} Sighted in at 30 yds planning on shooting out to 50.{article on PA about sighting scopes} shoots well from 20 to 50, with about 1 inch holdover at 50 using H&N 18.21g Hunters. Scope has held up well through at least 8 tins of ammo. Sighted in using a grip like centerfire rifle, Octane didn't seem to like artillery hold. I am getting great accuracy off shoulder. Wasn't sure about thumbhole stock but i love it, shoulders well and comfortable.
    Things I would have changed:Trigger. Somewhat front heavy.
    What others should know:Few months after receiving rifle, here are some chronied speeds. HN Hunters 18.21g-average of 732 fps. Crosman 14.3g H/P average 842 fps. Not quite what i expected , but plenty of power. Will chrony again soon and report findings.
