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 Aochuba from USA on 2013-06-25 20:41:30Things I liked:Exquisite finishing, accurate and quiet, this is a beautiful rifle, very well balanced anyone looking for a accurate, quiet air rifle should buy this without any hesitation.
Things I would have changed:Wish they had included an additional Magazine as most manufacturers are doing these days.Also wish that these had pre installed swivels like the marauders for slings as doing it by ourselves may spoil the finishing of the gun.
What others should know:Out in the field the wooden stock tends to pick up dents and bruises easily therefore care should be taken while taking it outdoors.
