    Things I liked:Of course I like the Bronco--I helped design it! I really like the straight Western-style stock that eliminates the need for a high Monte Carlo cheekpiece to raise your eye up for a scope. This rifle comes up to the right place naturally. And the easy cocking is another major plus. The Bronco was designed for older children, though adults will find that it suits them very well. The light cocking will make you want to shoot it all day long. I also love the two-bladed trigger that tells you absolutely when the transition is made from stage one to stage two. My test rifle trigger breaks at just 30 crisp ounces! You will be showing it off to your friends. The accuracy is another plus. Just because this is a plinker doesn't make it inaccurate. And it is completely ambidextrous.
    Things I would have changed:I would like to have a solid hood over the front sight. For now you can just remove it.
    What others should know:The Mendoza rear aperture sight will make the Bronco a delightful informal target rifle. Don't oil the piston seal until it squeaks during cocking. Crosman Premier pellets and Premier hollowpoints are very accurate.

    Things I liked:I like the design of the rifle and the open sights are nice for a plinking gun. The light cocking effort is also nice.
    Things I would have changed:After trying about 30 different pellets in this gun, I could not find one that grouped better than .441 inches CTC for a ten shot group at 10 yards. Most all other pellets were above .600". Also, the cocking and trigger are very gritty even after around 1500 pellets.
    What others should know:Shame on me for not catching that this particular gun is a dud in terms of accuracy. It should have used the 30 day money back guarantee, but I didn't start using it until then. Lesson learned. Even though my experience with this gun is not good, I would still trust the reviews this gun has received.

      Things I liked:This rifle is well made, cocks very easily, and has a light, crisp trigger. The iron sights are simple and work well. The blonde stock also looks very attractive to me.
      What others should know:If you would like to try other sighting options, Pyramyd sells the Mendoza Diopter sight, and Mendoza fiber optic replacement sights. I have installed the Diopter sight on my Bronco, and it works very well with the stock front sight. The soda cans do not stand a chance!

      Things I liked:Sighted in perfectly for 10 meters (using Gamo Match 7.71 grain wadcutters) right out of the box -- and VERY accurate. It's the easiest to cock spring airgun I've ever handled, seems lighter than the advertised weight (a good thing, IMO because it is well-balanced and smooth shooting and doesn't seem to need more weight). The western stock is point-friendly and the blonde wood contrasts nicely with the black metal. Also, it is very, very quiet, and I'm a basement shooter, so that's important to me.
      Things I would have changed:Hmmm. Nothing. Well, Mine has no serial number, and that sort of thing matters a bit to me. A serial number would be nice, but I'm being picky.
      What others should know:The two bladed / two stage trigger will take getting used to for me. I do not dislike it, but it is not a natural feel for me yet. (The second stage is crisp and light, though.)

      Things I liked:Size, weight, cocking effort, accuracy - after shooting magnum springers for so long.. it is nice to just have fun and hit the bulls-eye every time with NO EFFORT.
      Things I would have changed:The open sights are worthless... expect to put a leapers or centerpoint 3-9x32 AO variety scope on this for maximum fun and accuracy
      What others should know:AirVenturi keeps impressing me with products just like this. Their new Bronco beats other "youth" rifles that I've tried hands down. It is VERY consistent and easy to shoot. Nothing is more frustrating for a beginner than to never be able to get good results. This rifle, while not expensive, delivers where it counts, accuracy. It is easy enough for youngsters to shoot all day without fatigue. With an average of 479 FPS using H&N Finale Match Rifle Pellets, it is not a hard-hitting gun only generating a little over 4 FTLbs. But this is a YOUTH rifle and the power is just right for little Sally or Johnny to go in the back yard and shoot targets or spinners.
