By Eric from USA on 2011-09-24 00:36:33Things I liked:Velocity, accuracy, scope, sound, pistol grip stock, kill power.
Things I would have changed:Nothing, NOT even the trigger.
What others should know:Some people here are having trouble hitting the target with this rifle so here are my observations after shooting daily with this in .177 for a month... 1) Do not fire this from a rigid bench rest as the big recoil will cause this rifle to bounce even if locked in 2) Use a sand or bean bag to rest your hand on then rest the rifle forend on your hand as this will reduce any bounce 3) With the .177 pellet use the Crosman Magnum Dome 10.5 grains - lighter pellets will be traveling too fast for accuracy 4) After shooting more than a thousand rounds I can consistently hit 8 out of 10 in a one inch circle at 20 yards. While shooting one day a fly landed on my target & I hit it - again at 20 yards 5) I have taken out 9 raccoons with brain shots and several smaller pests with body shots - chipmunks, sparrows, rats, & mice 6) Hold the forend just in front of the trigger to reduce bounce from the recoil 7) This rifle has a big recoil because of the extra power and the shooter needs to learn the right touch to handle this without throwing off accuracy. The artillery hold didn't work for me so I use a semi-firm grip - just enough to hold the crosshairs steady while squeezing the trigger 8) Buy an offset Phillips screwdriver at your local hardware store to adjust the travel and tension of the trigger - you DON'T have to remove the stock. Many people have complained about the 2 stage trigger but I like it...squeeze, adjust aim, squeeze, fire. I have forty years experience as a shooter.

By william from USA on 2013-09-21 17:32:01Things I liked:Nice looking gun. Seems well built. I really like the design and feel of this gun.
Things I would have changed:Trigger is just plain bad. Horrible feel and way to long. Never know when it will finally fire
What others should know:I had one that went bad after one month of use cheap parts broke in half. Got second rifle. The 2nd rifle did not break but it can't hold any pattern at any distance. I have tried everything and spent to much time and money trying to figure this gun out. No type of hold seems to help and no pellet works well with it. I finally got to the point that I hated it. Decided to get an Discovery. I would highly recommend to stay away. 2 out of 2 guns went bad on me. Don't take the chance like I did...
