By Jeffrey from USA on 2014-05-29 22:31:46Things I liked:First PCP and I certainly started out right. Gorgeous gun. Fit and finish could not be better. Accuracy is absolutely amazing. Trigger is superb. I can't say enough great things about it. Expensive but well worth it. A GIANT step up for me and more than pleased.
Things I would have changed:Can't think of a thing other than the safety but that is minor.
What others should know:Definitely worth the cost.

By alexander marciniak from USA on 2015-03-02 14:50:15Things I liked:Near flawless, consistent AA accuracy. Fully customizable buttplate and cheekpiece. Large air reservoir for a high shot count. Stock that feels and fits as good as it looks. External power adjuster. Adjustable sling stud to place bipod various positions. Just fairly quiet, but nearly no mechanical noise at all, just air. The stock just feels great. From resting against your shoulder, to the smooth cheekpiece, to the ergonomic feel under the barrel. The stock just fits like a glove.
Things I would have changed:The minor things I'd like to see AA change are as follows. Like everyone else, the rheostat power adjuster has no notches to designate low, med, high power. You just have to guess. And for precision shooting, this not good enough. You will never get the same power each time adjusting it, apart from high of course. The front dovetail does not go back far enough. For scopes with a short eye relief and short length, you may not be able to put it far back enough toward you for your liking. I had to use a single strap mount in the front to do this. Could be lighter, but not too heavy. Ok, price. You're getting a wonderful stock, but it's nearly $600 more than the cheapest wood. AA, it's time you start making your wood stocks with cheekpieces and buttplates optionally adjustable. Had they, I would not have thrown this much money into this rifle, however, I am pleased with its quality nonetheless. Implement the safety elsewhere than the trigger. engaging the safety requires...
What others should know:...you to reach your index finger through the trigger housing and wrapping it around the trigger to engage it, as it is on the left side (this is of course if your right handed). it's awkward and can cause you to accidentally fire. You get two mags, and they operate well enough, but an extra is 50 dollars? this is way overpriced, and the design is far from perfect. Unlike my marauder mags, which completely house the pellets, the AA mag always leaves the pellet to be loaded exposed. so if you want to go hunting with preloaded mags, you'll be subject to the pellets (albeit 1 per mag) falling out into your pocket. Bottom line, I love this rifle, but for this price and for an established brand such as Air Arms, there is plenty of room for improvement. and one last thing, my initial rifle from PA came with the pistol grip snapped in half. Even after sending pictures of this (as asked), I still had to send it back to be inspected before my replacement would be sent. Unacceptable
