By John from USA on 2009-02-06 09:51:14Things I liked:The gun is very beautiful. Great work was done on this gun. The wood stock is good looking and the blued barrel is great as well. Everything about this gun is fantastic and it is very, VERY accurate. I love it and I would suggest that if you are even a little bit interested in this gun, get it already. It is everything that you expect it to be and then some.
Things I would have changed:The pellet stop is very flimsy. You have to be very, very careful when loading pellets in this gun using the magazine or you can break the pellet stop if it is not adjusted correctly. It is also a pain in the butt to re-adjust the pellet stop to suit different pellets as you have to remove the entire top of the gun (2 screws) as well as the gun butt as they are connected together. Once the cover is removed, be very careful as parts will start flying out like the magazine spring and the slider on top. But once everything is adjusted for the gun, it's all good. I would still redesign the entire loading and magazine system so that the gun can use ANY pellet with the magazine without having to tear the gun apart.
What others should know:The single loader on the right side of the gun is also very, very usable. Somewhere in this site, somebody said that pointed ammo can not be used in this gun. This is not true. You can NOT use pointed ammo with the magazine, but you CAN load them in the side loader. It is also not to easy to load pellets in the side loader as you actually have to depend on gravity to drop the pellet into it. You kind of have to shake and pull on the lever for the pellet to slide in. Sometimes it goes in smoothly and some times the pellet flips around and you have to spin the gun around to drop out the pellet. Other than this, if you calibrate the pellet stop to suit the right round that you choose, the gun loads wonderfully and easily. This gun blows away any other pellet rifle that I own. I also had a GAMO Hunter Extreme in .177 cal. and a Walther Falcon in .22 cal. My son has a GAMO Hunter 220 in .177 cal. These guns are great but really do not compare to the Shin Sung. They are not even in the same league. The Career III 707 is awesome and I am very happy with it. I would suggest this gun to anybody that loves to hunt and depends on accuracy and dependability. This gun is a very hard hitter and looks very beautiful.

By William from USA on 2009-01-25 15:38:49Things I liked:Powerful. I got 991 fps using a 28,4 grain Eun Jin for 61.9 fpe. My first six shots were 980-991 fps with the Eun Jins. Accuracy was very good.
Things I would have changed:I could not get a truly low power range. At the lowest setting using 14 grain Premiers I got 1100+ fps and no accuracy. The level action does not work well and jams pellets; I called Boris to ask for help on this. The tandem pellet carrier system is trouble-prone and should be abandoned in favor of a cylinder. The pellet carrier is finicky; just a nudge and it will empty itself of pellets all over the ground. It is very loud.
What others should know:This gun is for hunting only and is not a good choice for novice shooters. Due to the noise level from this gun you will not get a second shot.
