By squirrelhammer from USA on 2011-10-30 09:50:58Things I liked:The overall construction of the gun is precise and beautifully designed. At the lowest power setting, the striking pellet makes more noise than the gun firing; even at the highest power, this is one stealthy pellet gun. I'm still experimenting with pellets, but some JSB Diablo Exact (.22 cal.,15.9 grains) produced a ten shot pattern/hole the size of a dime at 35 yards. This was after setting up a Leaper's scope and firing less than forty pellets to zero it in! The air tank is fairly easy to top off with a hand pump, taking under four minutes.
Things I would have changed:The only thing I would like to see is more power, fps with heavier pellets, but that's true with all the air guns I own, except the Condor. The indexing spring, which advances the 10 shot clip is a bit fragile and easily bent if one adds/removes the clip improperly, a sturdier advancing system would be good. Otherwise, I wouldn't change anything, especially the barrel; the accuracy is amazing.
What others should know:Follow directions regarding the clip. Watch the clip rotate as you use the lever to advance pellets and make sure the clip "clicks" into place before pushing the advancing lever forward, which pushes in the pellet. If the clip does not advance and click into place, the advance spring may be bent or damaged. My gun started incompletely advancing the clip, but I CAREFULLY barely bent the brass advancing spring toward me and it's been working fine. Any serious advancing issues should go to an authorized shop. If the clip/magazine tends to pop out, bend/tighten the small, dark metal tab which grips a plastic wedge on the clip; this keeps the clip in place. Both of these above "fixes"are fingertip adjustments, possibly needed due to an improper loading on my part. I don't want to scare anyone off with these scenarios, the gun is fantastic. I own several pellet rifles; this one is rapidly becoming my favorite.

By Edgar from USA on 2014-10-26 17:08:39Things I liked:Well what can I say this gun is amazing. Pin point accuracy at 50 yards, power is there ranging from 34 fpe on high and 12 fps on low (.22 caliber), and having the power adjusted with just a slight turn if the knob is great, it's a very beautiful gun too. The trigger amazing to any gun I've ever owned. it will meet your expectations.
Things I would have changed:Nothing with the gun itself it's perfect well worth the price! The only thing is the markings that show what power my gun is at is different on mine; it's just one big mark so if I move it it'll be a little difficult to put it back exactly where I had it other than that it's perfect
What others should know:Even though its a thousand dollars is very well worth the price.but that is if you are a serious air gunner, I've had the Benjamin Marauder in this gun is more than twice the Marauder is. so don't settle for less if you want you want consistency.
