    Things I liked:Accurate even before it's broken in. Great Rekord trigger, I havent even made any adjustments. Muzzle velocity is as good or better than stated, much unlike RWS claims. Not at all hard to cock.
    Things I would have changed:A bit on the heavy side. A sling is a must for field trips.
    What others should know:This rifle rocks! Very accurate and very consistent, even before break in. I can get fat 1.0" groups @ 50 yards with open sights......not bad at all! Dont take the following info as this being a poorly made rifle, but it seems if you pay about 600 bucks for one there would have been better attention to those details mentioned. I have heard that Weirhrauch was cutting some corners in manufacture, this may be what I've seen. I had reason to remove the stock, and was surprised while inspecting the visible spring tube and other areas hidden by the stock. There were metal shavings left from machining and metal bits still attached at the ends of machined slots and holes. I had expected the interior of the stock would have had a good sanding, and these metal bits would have been removed, but that didnt happen. I took care of the shavings myself, and the big router fuzz left over on the stock can sit there......for now.

    Things I liked:I have two R1s, a .177 I purcheased in 1983 and a .22 I purchased 10 years later. Both triggers are exceptional and both group far better that I can shoot. Fit and finish are excellent. The .177 has a Beeman Blue Ring (aka Hako) 2-7 scope that I like a lot.
    Things I would have changed:Lose the iron sights at the factory and include a trigger shoe. My .22 has a BSA 2-7 scope that may be going away. The gun deserves better.
    What others should know:The Beeman R1 book is a very good read. Both guns seem to like H&N Match. I use the "artillery hold" exclusively.
