By Frances from USA on 2012-05-29 11:07:52Things I liked:I like to be able to shoot .17 or .22 pellets with the same rifle. It states that if you change barrels you will have to resight it. I have switched barrels half a dozen times and did not have to resight it. Have not had a barrel loosen up while shooting. It hits really hard. Penatrates a half inch pine board at thirty feet plus. I am using the open sights. I just don't care for scopes. Packaged very well. Like the carrying case. I have not had any problems with the rifle like I have read.
Things I would have changed:Somehow make it easier to cock. I am 75 years old and do not have the strength that I had in the good ole days. I have to bring the barrel down to where it is ready to cock then give it another pull with the help of my other hand. Oh well, I need the exercise anyway.
What others should know:When you tighten the set screw that holds the barrel in don't be a woose and put some man into it. You will not strip the screw unless you are a gorilla. My name is Bill. Frances is my wife and I use her PayPal account. That's why her name is on the review.

By Andrew from USA on 2013-03-25 19:06:17Things I liked:Barrels and scope are easy to mount and change.
Things I would have changed:Terrible accuracy. At 25 yards, the .177 barrel averaged 6.5" with 5-shot groups. The .22 barrel average 3.25" with 5-shot groups.... and I'm subtracting 1/4" for approximate aiming error, which I think is the maximum possible for the worst shot I made while testing. The .177 muzzle velocity averaged about 870 FPS w/ 8.2 grain pellets, standard deviation of 25-30 FPS. The .22 muzzle velocity averaged about 650 FPS with 15.4 grain pellets, standard deviation of about 15 FPS. Dieseling was so bad that the rifle is smokier than a .22 long rifle. Point of impact shift between barrels was 6 inches horizontally and not much vertically.
What others should know:While this rifle functions, it is so inconsistent that I consider it defective. Typical Made in China junk. Don't waste your time with it.
