Things I liked:Weight, feel and power. This rifle hits a 3/4" piece of plywood and continues on. When I first purchased this rifle I could not keep a consistent group at 20'. Come to find out the scope shipped with this rifle was damaged. I replaced the scope with a 4x32 leapers and after finishing a 500 count tin of crosman premiers off the rifle started keeping consistent groups. I was able to keep a dime size group at 50'. Go figure ... Scope or break in, I don't know. Things I would have changed:The trigger on this rascal is a bear, at first I had never felt such a hard pull. It seems after shooting 500 rounds/pellets through it the trigger has relaxed some. It's still a hard pull but tolerable. What others should know:This is not a high dollar air rifle, it does have a lot of the capabilities of the higher priced rifles though. You are going to have to spend some time with this rifle so you both will have to get to know one another. This rifle can and will perform along side the higher end rifles, just don't expect to tear this thing out of the box and start shooting groups the size of a dime at a 100' If your looking for a budget priced quality air rifle for yard critters, this rifle will work.
