Things I liked:Accurate as any gas piston rifle out there. Not as hard to cock as you would think from a magnum. Not as hold sensitive as others. Things I would have changed:Cant think of anything. I would like it lighter but I feel accuracy would suffer. I believe the weigt tames the movement as the pellet travels through the barrel. What others should know:It is not as heavy as the np xl. I origionally wanted the np xl but after reading alot i purchased the hatsan 125 with the crosman nitro piston because at the time thats all that was available for gas power plant. Glad I did. I own several gas and spring rifles and this is very accurate and actual fps @ 10 yds is 690s with a .25 cal jsb exact king 25.4.
