Things I liked:Gun is fantastic! Great accuracy, trigger and quality built.
Things I would have changed:None
What others should know:You are getting a lot of gun for this money. I bought this rifle for a back up to my daystate panther, but this gun is shooting just as accurate or better. This maybe the best value in a high power or hunter class rifle.

Things I liked:Superbly accurate. Fantastic adjustable match trigger. Easily adjustable power level. One ragged hole at 35 yds with Beeman Kodiak 10.2 at 1/2power. Avg 913. Nearly 1100 fps at full power with same weight pellet.Single shot gate is easily loaded and the cocking lever is excellent and very smooth.You can get a 10 shot magazine model for an extra $200.
Things I would have changed:This finish is not very durable. Easily scratched and the checkering is wearing after some use. I would recommend the wood stock either beech or Walnut. I would easily rate this a 5 on all counts if not for the durability of the stock.Also power level adjuster needs detente.
What others should know:Note the "banjo" fitting for the air fill. It is unique to the industry and takes some getting used to. Make sure you have the correct fitting to match the "banjo" Female 1/8 thread. Due to barrel constriction you will need to use a straw down the muzzle end of the barrel to get your cleaning pass through down the barrel. A neat trick picked up on the AA owner forum.Most accurate PCP for the price. I would highly recommend it with a different stock. If you want accuracy this is the one regardless of stock.

    Things I liked:First off I have the 0.177 version. The stock is beautiful as others have noted. The gun is lighter than expected - certainly lighter than my Marauder. Very accurate now that I've run dry patches through the barrel. Plenty of power - I get about 19 ft lbs of energy at half power with a 10.34 grain JSB pellet. Plenty of shots per charge - I can shoot this from about 190 bar to 110 bar giving me about 40+ shots.
    Things I would have changed:Price - but I can see why it costs so much. You get what you pay for. The blueing on the gun loves to gather fingerprints - so be prepared to wipe it often to keep it looking great.
    What others should know:First off I had trouble getting hole-in-one groups right out of the box with JSB pellets at 25 yards. I ended up running dry patches through the barrel and the gun is super accurate now - even got great results with Beeman Kodiak 10.65 pellets. Mine loves the heavier pellets for some reason, especially the JSB 10.34 grain. To try and keep the gun light, I paired mine with medium scope rings and a Hawke 2-7x32 AO IR scope - plenty of range out to 50 yards. Last, if you plan on using a Benjamin pump to fill it up - remember to buy the Air Venturi Foster adapter to make the connection. Much easier to pump up compared to my Marauder for some reason.

    Things I liked:The weight and finish of rifle. Being able to adjust the power easily is a major plus. The finish on the stock is great.
    Things I would have changed:Nothing! Gun is perfect and priced perfect.
    What others should know:This gun is extremely accurate and very consistent without a regulator.it is one of the best values for the money! I bought the gun for a back up field target gun and this gun is outperforming my main gun that cost $1,600 more. Buy this gun! You will love it.
