By benny from USA on 2010-01-09 11:52:07Things I liked:This rifle is deadly accurrate. It has a nice heavy weight to it and is a large framed rifle, so it fits the larger man well. After firing around 100 rounds through the machine it is becoming a tack driver.
Things I would have changed:It comes with alot of cosmoline on the contact points. You need to wipe some of the excess off, but being careful to leave enough on to keep the machine lubed. I also went with a leapers one piece scope mount and mil dot scope. The gun has heavy recoil and I did not want to take a chance with scope creep or breakage.
What others should know:It takes about 60 rounds for the rounds to start to settle in. Don't even try to set the scope until you fire about this much ammo through it. It will be a futile attempt. The rifle also likes hollow point rounds far more than match rounds. Using crosman hollow points I was able to group at 1.5" at 20yds in 10F weather. Every so often my hands would go numb, so it would probably due better in warmer weather. It is very hold sensitive like other break barrel rifles. After I put several rounds through it the claimed accuracy started to appear. The rifle will also smoke a bit through the first dozen or so rounds as it is blowing the grease out of it. Go ahead and blue locktite everything down (scope base, stop, tube mounts) before you start shooting to save yourself some grief.

By George from USA on 2013-05-08 23:08:56Things I liked:I liked the power, scope, the high feel of a quality product. Was very impressed! But then:
Things I would have changed:A different way of cocking so the scope is tied into the Barrel.
What others should know:I could not sight in the scope. I was only 50 feet from the target and it would shoot high 4 inches then low 4 in. It was all over the place. Then I found out why. I held the gun buy the stock and wiggled the tip of the barrel. There was a good 1/8 in movement at the break point were it cocks from. This would not be a problem if you just used the sight because its mounted to the barrel but the scope is not. Bad design. I returned it the first day. All that power and niceness is no good if you can't hit any thing.
