By afastman from USA on 2013-12-26 00:17:01Things I liked:I bought 2 of these for my boys for Christmas. Of course the surprise was worth the effort, but the product lived up to its reviews and reputation. Although the backpack water bottle and firs aid kit are "take it or leave it," the gun and the stock are well worth the investment. The fact that it comes with a starter pack of pellets pushes the total value over the top. By noon we had set up a small target range and the boys were shooting with HUGE smiles on their faces. It was a great afternoon of learning safety, technique and by the end of the session, hitting targets with fairly consistent results from 20 yards out. Right out of the box, the accuracy is impressive. The ease of use made it fun for my brother and I as well as the 7 and 9 year olds. The small-ish stock is a good stater platform for the smaller ones as well.
Things I would have changed:So far, not much. I do see the usefulness of several of the modifications that are popular on this gun and would hope that Crosman would incorporate several of them in subsequent offerings.
What others should know:Airgunners beware, this is definitely a gateway into a deep (probably $$$) black hole. I already have plans to dial these in and make them better for the monkeys, but I highly recommend this kit.

By Alexander from USA on 2014-07-20 15:28:27Things I liked:Very accurate with a cheap dot sight installed on a steel breech. Variable power and relatively low report makes it perfect for shooting indoors.
Things I would have changed:Plastic breech and wiggling stock. With the plastic breech the barrel moves up and down quite a bit. This can be fixed somewhat by tightening the barrel band screw, but a much better solution is installing a steel breech. The stock wiggles a lot due to the pin not holding it tight enough. Crosman should include the stock with the holes in the grips for the screws. The metal grip has the threaded posts for the screws, so there is no reason to include the stock without the holes.
What others should know:Excellent value for the money. Put on a steel breech and a scope of your choice and you'll have lots of plinking fun. Make sure to put a drop or two of pellgun oil right behind the pump piston cap. Out of the box pumping can be quite stiff. Once lubricated properly, pumping is very easy.
