By Cheng-Lee from USA on 2010-09-17 17:11:42Things I liked:This is easily the best air gun I have owned. Very, very smooth and quiet. Barely louder than the Beeman P3 pistol. Definitely quieter than the RS3 and the RWS 48 I have. The gun feels very balanced in hand and feels lighter than it is. I have the .22 version and it's very accurate with the FTS and the Kodiak. The side lever action is very smooth, once you learned how to insert the magazine properly. The fit and finish is absolutely first rate. The walnut stock is so beautiful I admired it for hours. The sport model's thumb indent fits my shooting hand nicely.
Things I would have changed:Nothing at all.
What others should know:The fully shrouded barrel virtually has no recoil or muzzle flip. I think they have directed some of the gas back to close to the action to vent. There are 4 small vent holes just pass the action on the barrel shroud. This is so much refined shooting. I am still trying to figure out how to adjust the trigger for weight. The manual (probably written for the previous non-FSB version) mentioned 2 screws but the one in front of the trigger guard does not seem to be there, or they may have moved it, or that it is underneath the stock. Short of removing the stock, I have no way of finding that screw mentioned.

By Mark from USA on 2013-03-03 23:29:22Things I liked:Sturdy feel, very quiet. Trigger is amazing, extremely accurate. Nice finish. No recoil. Did I mention accurate.
Things I would have changed:I don't like having to cock the gun to remove the magazine. I feel like i should pull the trigger to release the air before storing the gun. I don't mind the safety so much, it is one way to tell if the weapon is loaded. This is my first air gun and I would like better instructions.
What others should know:With the hawke 3-12x44 this is a tack driver. I've been shooting a .22 cal big boy (22grain) hollow point. There have been no wounded varmints! And i havent missed one yet. This is a real pleasure to shoot.
