Things I liked: Awesome power, will blow thru 1" plywood with no problem. Good accuracy up to 50 yards or so. You must treat this gun with respect, it is not a toy for a 12 year old. Excellent quality and workmanship, well worth the price in my opinion. The scope is first rate but really waaay too much for this gun, you will not be shooting at 200 yards. I put a BSA 1X red dot on mine and it works great. The tripod is very nice and good quality, a heavy gun so it comes in handy.
Things I would have changed: The safety is the only rinky dinky thing.
What others should know: You won't find ammo at your corner store so buy lots of it. Try the round "mini-ball" as well, works OK and a lot cheaper.
