Things I liked:good penetration for wood and steel can targets, makes even lower powered pistols into soup can destroyers. airgun version of AP round (armor piercing) looks like sabot tank round. leaves barrel clean, its lead free and can be handled with out hand washes. price is great. Things I would have changed:accuracy could use improvement, but its penetrating power makes up for its faults. would go from zinc formula to tungsten tips. What others should know:does well for accuracy more in pistols, any ultra light pellet is not for long range accuracy in riffles that break sound barrier (1100 fps) tests show tumble of the pellets on target.
Things I liked:solid, close tolerences, great riffling in barrel, does well on velocity despite its very short barrel, 400 fps for a hobby pellet 11.9 grain. can cock without assist tool with a shop rag or your palm if placed in correctly. Things I would have changed:not much because of its its reasonable pice, you get more then you pay for. rear sites are combat style insted of target sites, combat style has bigger gaps in between front post and rear posts when looking down the sites for a target. What others should know:the 22 version pellets will stick flush in pine boards, and because of the weight of the pellets it has even more energy at 25 yards then the fast light .177 pistols that do 500 fps with 7.4 gr pellets, this is because heavy pellets retain more energy then light pellets wich means saved power for longer range impact on target. make shure breach seal sticks just above flush, a sunk breach seal can cost 50-100 fps in velocity, 1/32 to 1/16 exposed should be fine. 22 version loves light 9.57 gr beeman fts lead free pellets 480 fps on high end, for lead use air arms or jsb 13.4 gr, its a lighter domed pellet, and rws hobby 11.9 gr for 10 meter paper popping. dont forget 3 drops chamber lube also after 6 months or a few thousand rounds, wich ever comes first. you can use a eye dropper to put lube in chamber hole, then just buy rws chamber oil or the other brands specifically for the chamber, never use other lubes, they are not the same as chamber lube and can dielsel very hard or errode piston seal.
