Things I liked: Awesome air rifle that delivers excellent accuracy, easily adjustable power, fine workmanship and quality. The power wheel allows low velocity for 10m shooting and high velocity for extended ranges beyond 50 yds. Also, the rifle gives a high number of shots per fill on half power with very useable velocity to 40 yards. The rifle does not seem to be pellet fussy. Accuracy at 20 yds and 40 yds has been impressive. The balance, feel of the rifle, length of pull, and comb height are spot on. Pyramyd customer service has been second to none.

Things I would have changed: Noise reduction could be improved through a better baffle system. The location of the safety needs moved off the trigger, as others have said. The fill adapter fits tightly when new; a foster style fitting would be preferred. Offer a version with a true match trigger.

What others should know: The trigger is decent from the factory but still has some sticking points which are very predictable. It is good for a sporter rifle, but not at the level of competitive match rifles or custom triggers. This model is a single shot and it is very easy to load the pellet evenly each time without worrying about alignment tolerances of rotating magazines. If you require fast follow-ups, get the S510 repeater.

Things I liked: The whole package is great. Comes up to shoulder, mine at least, really well. I've started doing some testing and got to the range with a Hawke 6-24 by 50mm sidewinder scope on top. Weather is miserable so I only spent an afternoon getting zeros for 745 ft/sec with crossman premiers, 14.3 grain, and it shoots pretty flat. I plan to use this for field target matches so I'm looking for under 20 ft pounds. I got these zero: +3 MOA at 10 yards, 0 at 15, -1/2 at 20 and 30, up 5 at 45, up 8 from 15 yard 0 at 50. I like 2 stage triggers so this is a great feature. All kinds of adjustments. Shooting it for the 1st time I left it untouched. I like the fact that the power is externally adjustable. Chrono'd today in the house and nice shot count at 50 with velocity at 780 ft/sec with 14.3 gr pellets with good consistency before falling off.

Things I would have changed: Ok - the power adjustment is insanely sensitive - at it's lowest 445 ft/sec for corssman 14.3 gr pellets - about 1/3 up for 19.x ft pounds. It would be nice to have a good solid way to lock it place - I plan on some clear nail polish. Aslo the trigger as it came to me was kind of heavy - didn't measure it. I lightened it as much as possible - feels ok now but I'm not sure of the weight but guess around a pound and a half - no creep or lumpyness and goes quickly.

What others should know: Great rifle in 22 - wanted one for a while, seems to shoot really well. A bit heavy for off hand but off the knee - no problem. Will make a hell of a silhouette rifle too. You need to get Air Venturi Male Quick-Disconnect, 1/8" BSPP Female Thread to use the fill probe - the probe doen't have tapered pipe threads.
