Things I liked:looks
made in usa
fun to shoot
accurte Things I would have changed:less plastic What others should know:This gun is just about all plastic. This means that it requires a little more tender care than your pumpmaster! Be sure to follow the instructions and it'll work fine. It shoots harder than a pneumatic airgun I have that is rated at 600fps. The nightstalker blew through plastic bottles at 15 yards when the pneumatic only pierced one side (with the pellet staying trapped inside the bottle). This gun shoots so fast that you can literally blow the bottles away. My sons thought it was the best gun we shot. Buy it, follow the instructions, remember it's plastic.
Things I liked:This rifle felt solid right out of the box. The cocking motion is smooth, and it's easy to aim without a scope. The grip is extremely comfortable. When I bought this rifle, it was the only USA-made break barrel on the market. It's a damn shame it has been discontinued. Things I would have changed:The trigger guard. It's completely functional, but it doesn't do justice to the high quality feel of the rest of the gun. What others should know:Accuracy will suffer for folks who've never shot a spring piston air rifle before, but those accuracy problems are not because the rifle doesn't shoot straight; it just isn't a pump action or pcp and has a reasonable amount of kick.
Things I liked:The power (over 20 foot pounds with several pellets), the open sights, the accuracy (with the right pellets), the fit and finish, and the safety system Things I would have changed:Nothing, but smaller/weaker individuals should be aware that the cocking effort is close to 50 lbs. What others should know:This is absolutely the best value for your money in a .25 break barrel. In many ways it's a poor-man's Theoben in that you get all of the power and reliability of a Theoben-built gas ram for a little more than half the price of a comparable Theoben.
