By Adam from USA on 2013-04-20 00:15:46Things I liked:Piston fire; dovetail; gorgeous sights; long trigger pull; smooth trigger (after break in); visually attractive
Things I would have changed:Despite being smooth and crisp the trigger is too heavy. Ideally should be around 4lbs. The front sight is located much too high: in order to get sighted in I had to put the rear sight as high as possible AND move it all the way forward on the dovetail...which only lasted a little while as there's no sight stop.
What others should know:I've had this pistol on [back] order since May 2012 and it finally came out April 2013. The long wait was worth it as now that I've broken her in she's everything I expected her to be. You should know a few things: First, she's heavy. That should be obvious since it's a piston fire and it shoots over 500fps. It's also quite large. Keep that in mind - this is sized and weighted for an adult. Secondly she shoots low without the helper handle, even lower with the helper handle. For mounting a scope I had to get an elevation adjustable mount. Third, the break in took me upwards of 400 shots. This is the most it's ever taken me to break in a pellet gun. I was getting quite frustrated but glad I stayed at it. Fourth, it requires a loose grip to be accurate. That has been a challenge in and of itself due to the weight of the pistol and the heavy trigger. Yes adding a scope compounded getting used to firing it accurately. Lastly, it took me a while to figure it out but to use the helper handle to cock it without firing with it mounted...turn it around and slip the front end over the end of the barrel. It took me a while to figure that one out as I don't see it mentioned in the instructions. Overall this pistol is everything I was hoping it would be. I wanted something powerful and accurate enough for the smallest game and she performs.

By Jimb from USA on 2014-04-01 22:43:49Things I liked:Looks good and feels good in the hand. Balance isn't bad
Things I would have changed:NO power. pellets bounced off of aluminum cans.
What others should know:Less than 20 pellets through it, but it should have more power than this. If you are buying this hoping for pest control airpistol, look elsewhere.
