By Les from USA on 2012-04-06 22:32:35Things I liked:This is a well-built gun that delivers on its promises. It is easy to cock and accurate. Even brand-new, it shoots without roughness or buzz. I like the stock. I think the light color is distinctive and attractive. The stock allows an easy, repeatable cheek weld. The bluing is rich and even. I think this gun will last longer than I will. The trigger breaks light and smooth compared to other lower-priced air rifles. This adds a great deal to the accuracy, as the gun does not wiggle when you squeeze the trigger. It is a springer, and needs to held like one, as it will recoil a little when fired. I put 120 rounds through mine he first time I had it at the range. I think I could have put 120 more through it before my arm would get tired. I can't say that about my other springers.
Things I would have changed:Only two things. This is a target rifle and I use it for shooting black bulls-eye targets. The black front post is hard to see against a black target. I painted the rear face of the front post white to see it better. The safety works oddly. The safety cannot be engaged unless the gun is cocked. After firing, the safety remains on "fire". Thus, the gun cannot be transported or stored with the safety engaged. An empty, discharged gun will appear exactly the same as a loaded, cocked gun with the safety released. I like to store and transport my guns with the safety engaged (although they are unloaded). I would change the safety so it can be engaged whether or not the gun is loaded.
What others should know:This is a gateway gun to upscale spring guns. It is way better than guns costing only a little less. The money spent building this gun was concentrated on areas that affect performance the most: the barrel and the trigger. I bought the target variant because the sights are similar to the ones used on target guns my grand children shoot in their 4H shooting club. Obviously, you could buy the standard version if you intend to scope it and save a few bucks. But the target sights are good enough at 25 yards that it shoots within the range of accuracy of my scoped guns at that range. I do not intend to put a scope on this one.

By Malcolm from USA on 2014-01-06 20:28:15Things I liked:Very accurate for a break barrel springer.
Things I would have changed:Better sights, the Williams Target sight does not work with this air gun without raising the front sight considerably. You are getting a fairly accurate but cheap springer with a cobbled up sighting system, don't be fooled. The safely is kind of cheap along with the plastic "breach block". The comb of the wood stock needs to drop more, seems like the stock was carved out of a 2x6.
What others should know:The reason I gave this 1 star is not necisarily the quality or function of the air gun but that Pyramyd Air would ever let the Target Pro model of this air rifle leave their hands without adding the front sight riser or at least take the time to toss it in the box. Why pay $50 extra for a target sight that doesn't work with the air gun as is? Why not just add the $2 sight riser? Overall not worth the hype, save your money and buy something higher end.
