Things I liked:Made in germany, bluing, woodstock, nice hefty feel, light recoil Things I would have changed:Quality control, manufacturing tolerances. Rifle I received had the rear of the barrel bored completrly off-center, very close to seal! What others should know:This is NOT a 'good deal' airgun as you could be lead to think. Far from the idea you'd have of german quality manufacturing. The hoopla is very much on the marketing, not on customer support. Poor purchase.
