By Customer from USA on 2011-02-04 09:14:43Things I liked:Trigger,the feel and looks of the gun,and I get a little over 100 accurate shots out to 50 yards where my targets are set up.
Things I would have changed:Maybe give the length of pull about another 3/4 of an inch.Even with all the spacers it is just a tiny bit to short to my liking.
What others should know:Drop dead accurate with Air Arms 8.4 grain,4.52 head size lightly oiled with FP-10 lubricant.I get sub half inch groups and have shot groups smaller than a 1/4 of an inch at 50 yards.Small flies dont stand a chance that land on my targets,and I turn small acorns into a mist.Of course this is from my bench with no wind. But If you know your wind doping skills you can still get 1/2 groups with this gun all day long at 50 yards.With these Air Arms pellets as mentioned above and gun charged at 170 bar on my chrony on a 10 shot string I get a low of 741.8 fps,High of 756.8 fps,Average of 747.9 fps,Extreme spread of 14.75 fps,Standerd Deviation of 4.79 FPS.Also I chronied this gun with the RWS 5.2 grain Hyper Max pellets and they averaged 860 fps on a 10 shot string.Anyway,not only is it accurate,it DOES have enough power at 30 plus yards to bag squirrels.I have also dispatched black birds and grackles out past 70 yards.By the way,I am not carring this gun in the woods anymore.Just like my AIR ARMS S410 Extra FAC,it is to beautiful to accidently get it scratched up.I will stick with my Synthetic Stock FX Monsoon,Condor,TalonSS,or one of my springers to carry in the woods.If you like field target out to fifty yards and dont want to spend over $1000 dollars,this is the gun to buy.You will be pleased!BTW,I forgot mention the silver air stripper on the barrel.It really brings shines on this gun.No muzzle jump at all.

By kevin from USA on 2008-11-12 17:47:48Things I liked:This rifle is very accurate and will shoot with the AA EV2 out to 35-40 yards, very well balanced, has a really high shot count for an unregulated gun and I like the looks.
Things I would have changed:I would add some weight for more stability for Field target or silhouette shooting. The after market adjustable butt stock is mandatory for anyone of average height and build. This rifle could definitely use a knee rest stock.
What others should know:This a 12ft-lb air rifle, so plan on working the wind doping skills. It makes for a really nice rifle right up to entry level field target, but if the cash is there and you're serious about competition spring the extra cash for the AA EV2.
