Things I liked:The wood to metal fit ... the finish on the wood and metal... the overall appearance of the rifle... the under barrel cocking... the fixed barrels effect on accuracy... the outstanding trigger performance ... the rubber butt padding... the absence of any plastic parts... the feel of the rifle when raised to the firing position... the eye relief of the Leapers 3-9x40 Scope Things I would have changed:The cocking lever ball lock catch on this gun needs QC attention. The ball and spring popped out for the ball fit in its housing was not sufficiently tight.
Another QC matter I encountered was with the seal that closes on the breech was cut damaged and not a good fit. These two problem areas are relatively minor failures easily corrected by replacement of a couple of small parts.. What others should know:This air rifle has been improved so much that it is a pride to own. It is a beautiful rifle and a good shooter. While the rifle is a little heavy, that likely is a plus for stability when firing. I find nothing cheap or sub-standard about this rifle.
