Things I liked:This is a pretty nifty little gizmo. I used it in a recent 10m match and it was easy to keep track of my shots. So, now I use it for practice sessions as well. It's easy to load and it makes it easy to check the skirts of your pellets for damage. Close the cover and the pellets stay put. Nice. Things I would have changed:The spacing is a little tight for my fingers. Another 1 or 2 millimeters between pellets would be good, but it's quite usable as is. The price could be a bit lower as it's all molded plastic.
Things I liked:These pellets are consistently well formed and clean. I weighed about 100 of them to evaluate their consistency and got 6.8 to 7.4 grains with most being from 7.1 to 7.3 grains. They shoot very well in my IZH 46M. The diameter also seems to be very consistent, unlike Crosman competition pellets that sometimes load loose, sometimes snug. The weight variation might make a difference at longer ranges, but no problem at 10m. Things I would have changed:Nothing. They are as advertised. Good value for the $.
Things I liked:Great targets for 10m practice as you don't have to change targets as often. I made a 15 inch square pellet trap (targets are 14 inches square) and the system works great. Things I would have changed:Nothing.
Things I liked:These are very clean and consistent pellets. I weighed about 20 pellets and they were all within two tenths of a grain, so I stopped. RWS Basic pellets I weighed varied by six tenths of a grain and they shoot very well at 10m, so I figure the Meisterkugelns will do even better. I tried comparing accuracy of RWS Basic, Meisterkugeln, and H&N Match Pistol pellets by putting a red dot on my IZH 46M and shooting 5 pairs of each pellet at 10 meters from a rest. Frankly, all these pellets are likely more accurate than I can shoot them, even from a rest. Most pairs shot into overlapping holes maybe 2 to 3 mm center to center. The Basics pairs were maybe not quite as good as the other pellets, but still very good. Things I would have changed:Nothing What others should know:I live at 6000ft altitude, so my IZH 46M suffers a little in velocity. I chronographed the RWS Basic, Meisterkugeln, and H&N Match Pistol (both 4.49 and 4.48 head diameter) pellets and found the Meisterkugelns to give the highest average velocity by about 12 fps over the Basics which shoot at 436 fps from my gun. The H&N pellets shot the slowest (433 fps), even with less friction from the smaller head size. Apparently the extra weight offsets the lower friction. Since extra velocity is a good thing, the Meisterkugelns will be my match pellets and the Basics will do fine for practice.
Things I liked:This is a well made and well finished, all metal product. It fits my IZH 46M perfectly and takes Weaver rings perfectly. Things I would have changed:Nothing What others should know:Very secure mount. I used it to mount a red dot for some pellet testing. No problems at all.
Things I liked:Installed easily on my Crosman PC77. They are very light weight. They make mounting a red dot very easy. Things I would have changed:The bottom of the mounts don't quite touch the cylinder, so the mounts can twist side to side a little. What others should know:The play is enough to throw a mounted sight off a bit. A little strip of thick tape on each side would probably fix the problem well enough.
Things I liked:These are great pellets. My 2nd generation Marauder loves them and shoots them very well. They're very clean and consistent and I found only a few in each tin with bent skirts. Things I would have changed:Nothing.
Things I liked:These are excellent pellets. My 2nd generation Marauder shoots them quite well. The only better shooting pellet I've found is the JSB Exact 8.4 grain. Things I would have changed:Nothing
Things I liked:This is a quality pump. It's well made and very solid. I chose this over other brands because it's ok for the owner to service/rebuild it when it needs it. Hill sells rebuild kits for this purpose. Things I would have changed:I think the provided fill hose is too short. I bought a micro bore hose that is 24 inches long and it makes filling my airgun much easier. What others should know:Hand pumps are not for everyone. It is fairly strenuous to fill a Marauder to 3000 psi.
Things I liked:Not very much. I bought these when I bought a Marauder because people on various forums have said they shoot well in their guns. Many seem to use them for field target competitions. My 2nd generation Marauder does not like them at all. They are also coated with graphite or some other black substance so they are kind of dirty to work with. My gun likes JSB Exact 8.4 pellets just fine. Things I would have changed:Nothing. Airguns are sometimes pretty fussy about pellets. That's just part of the game. These work well for some people/guns and not for others.
Things I liked:The steel is a bit thicker than the Gamo units so should be a little more durable. The cost is pretty good. They come with a length of string for resetting, so they're usable right out of the box. Things I would have changed:The fasteners on the ends of pivot shafts tend to come off pretty easily. Something better should be used. What others should know:These operate pretty roughly. They work out of the box, but eventually they will need some work to keep them operating well. The paddles dent pretty easily even with a .177 caliber pellet. I don't think they will stand up very long with almost any .22 caliber gun.
Things I liked:Very solid mount. It clamps onto the dovetail very securely. Also, since it's a one piece unit, the rings are well aligned. Things I would have changed:The only negative on this is that the clearance between the bottom of the rings and the support bar is only 1/8 of an inch. The bottom of the turret housing on some scopes is more than this and the scope will not sit in the rings correctly without shimming. What others should know:Excellent quality. Just be aware of the scope bottom clearance.
Things I liked:I was very impressed with the build quality of the gun. It's very, very nice. It's got a classic style stock so the gun handles very well. It seems to shoot a few different pellets pretty well. I haven't really done any serious pellet testing yet because one of the first ones I tried shot fine. The trigger pull is long, but otherwise excellent...and adjustable. Things I would have changed:The gun was pretty oily when I unboxed it, especially the spring. I've heard a number of comments that these guns were being shipped too dry, but mine was the opposite. As a result, it dieseled quite a bit until I worked the oil out of the chamber. Perhaps there's a happy medium somewhere. What others should know:This is an excellent spring rifle, but it does vibrate and recoil. Be sure to tighten up the screws periodically.
Things I liked:This a very solid scope mount and is clearly designed to work with RWS guns. It has not moved a bit, even with a somewhat heavy scope on it. Things I would have changed:Nothing. It has worked perfectly. What others should know:Don't know if I really needed the droop compensation with an RWS 34, but there have been no sighting problems with it. I just works great.
Things I liked:It's a solid scope. The glass is clear and easy to look through. It has held zero just fine so far, although I have it mounted on a PCP rifle so there is no real recoil. It focuses to less than 10 yards which I needed for field target shooting. The turrets can be zeroed which is nice after the rifle is sighted in. Things I would have changed:The reticle is a bit thicker than I like and it has slightly large mildots, but it's not a real problem. I almost never use the illuminated reticle, so I do wish Leapers offered the same scope without the illumination. That might result in a slightly lighter scope. Seems like Leapers scopes tend to run to the heavy side. What others should know:The scope is working well for the shooting I do. It's a good all around scope.
Things I liked:The unit is well made and installs easily. It gives a lot more tactile feel so I know when I have my finger square to the trigger. It's easier to know that I'm stroking the trigger straight back and not either pushing or pulling to the side. Things I would have changed:My finger does not fall horizontally across the trigger. I doubt if anyones' does. It would be nice if the trigger blade could be rotated to accommodate the downward angle of the trigger finger. What others should know:As others have mentioned, this trigger cannot be adjusted quite as far back as the factory one. For me this is not an issue. Do remember that you want your finger to be square to the trigger after you've taken up the first stage travel. Also, I got a better fit by turning the blade upside down on the shaft. This is easily done.
