    Things I liked:Great looking. Smooth action. Easy to operate and adjust. Extremely accurate.
    Things I would have changed:Power adjustment knob needs positive clicks rather than free spinning. Adjustable butt-pad.
    What others should know:This is one magnificent air rifle and is .22 caliber. I have been extremely impressed. Both Air Arms fields plus 5.52 and JSB heavies 18.1 grain work very well with the JSB grouping a tiny bit better at greater distances (70+ yards and up). After learning the rifle and finding the right pellet/barrel match, I have been able to make 5 shot groups of 1 inch at 103 yards. I have even made some 3/4 inch groups at that distance. A 20 shot group at that distance was slightly under 1 1/2 inches. This was using a rest. It has a sweet spot of 175 bar down to around 120 bar. This results in 25 consistent shots. Although you can fill to 200 bar and shoot down to 110 bar and get many more shots, which will be accurate at closer distances (50 yards and closer).

    Things I liked:Nice looking rifle, very accurate and quiet.
    Things I would have changed:The filling system. I had to ream out the female connector that is used to connect the gun to the filling system, to get it to fit.
    What others should know:You will need to shim the scope mounts, or use ones that have barrel droop compensation in their design.

      Things I liked:I just got the gun in December. I was really impressed with the poplar wood option. I was a little skeptical on how it would look being the cheaper package. I've got a 25cal Marauder that is pretty plain and thats what I was afraid the AA might resemble. The gun shoots great. It's pretty easy to get Dime groups at 50yds with JSB 18.1 grain pellets. I haven't tried the other quality brands but I think they will shoot good also.
      Things I would have changed:A tighter power adjuster knob with indents that semi-lock the knob in place. This seems to be a common issue.
      What others should know:If your shooting Mrods this would be a great gun to purchase if you want a better quality gun and still stay under $900. It's a tack driver right of of the box.
