Things I liked:Accuracy, price, trigger Things I would have changed:Lighter stock, add a fold down bi-pod What others should know:This thing is sick accurate, easily the most accurate air gun I have ever owned. After a short break-in period I started shooting raisins off of the ends of toothpics at 25 yards. I would have moved the backstop further but that's all the back yard I have. When the challenge went away I just started cutting the toothpicks in half.
Things I liked:Price and accuracy, this puppy humms. I was very impressed with what I got for the price right out of the box. I knew from the reviews that it would be loud so I ordered a silencer from a guy on the internet the same time I ordered the gun. It took the report from that of a 22LR to that of a BB gun. Actually the report of what I was shooting at was louder. The accuracy initially went to hell with the silencer since I had to remove the sight and there was nothing left but threads to act as a base for the silencer. I just turned a ring on my lathe with some axis adjusters and that fixed the problem. I started shooting raisins off the ends of toothpics at 35 ft but after a while I just went to shooting the toothpics. 10 sequential shots, 10 toothpics cut in half and I have video to proove it. It likes the heavier pellets (18.3) and I don't see a loss in accuracy until well below 80 bars. I fill my cylinder with a 80 CF scuba tank I bought on Craig's list for $65 and I've put over 300 rounds through it without re-filling the tank. I have a 4x12x40 illuminated reticle Leaper MiL-Dot scope mounted on the gun which is crystal clear and allows me to take shots I have never taken before like squirrels hiding behind a limb and only exposing 1 eye and an ear. I just put the shot between the ear and the eye, no problem even at 60-80 ft. I also mounted a camera rig I bought off e-bay ($40) for my Nikon coolpix camera which allows me to take stills and video in HD right through the scope. Things I would have changed:Some type of shrouded barrel for noise suppression would help. This thing is loud. I like my screw-on suppressor but it's about 8" long. What others should know:A lot of discussion about the trigger however, I found it to be one of the best in the airgun market so I don't think it's a game-changer for most people considering buying this rifle. You can buy a good springer for around the same price as this gun but you will not get the accuracy. After using this gun I will never go back to a springer.
