Overall rating:5.0

Value for money:4.0

Accuracy:5.0

By Anthony from USA on 2009-10-27 22:36:01

Things I liked: Awsome airgun. Good for compation, the people complaning should just let the air rifle speak for its self. The long trigger pull makes me hit the 2nd stage and then I would know when it would break like glass. I have used this gun for comp at 10 meters and I dominated the comp. Every one had more better guns, but bad pellets. This gun is not picky on pellets so you could use any pellets you like. This gun will fire and keep going with a match grade barlle. It will get the job done.

Things I would have changed: I wish they would make wights for the stock to balance out the gun.

What others should know: Don't be bugged by the trigger and let the gun speak. You can costamize it, but don't go over board. This gun can be used for 10 meter comp, and I have went all the way to national comp and almost won with this air gun 7th in national. So don't blame the gun and let it work out the bugs and speak.

    Things I liked: Rifle is very accurate, the sights are good but could use a couple of different inserts beside just circles. The stock is beautiful and holds very nice in all positions. The weighted front (co 2 tank and barrell weight) keep the gun from moving at all this helps to overide the trigger pull creep. The trigger pulls nice but creeps a long way after engagement with the sear. Only the free play is adjustable not the weight of pull or travel. The pull can be lightened but requires some gunsmithing. (don't do it if your not sure how to ) it is quite easy to ruin the internals if you make a mistake. The trigger is nothing you can't live with and shouldn;t ruin the overall rating of this gun. Other than a few minor problems it's a pretty nice little rifle for the aspiring target shooter. The co 2 tank needs a little work on the threading on the gun end it is somewhat difficult to screw in, use a 5/8' box wrench the wrench supplied doesn't do it and will ruin the hex end on the tube. kw

    Things I would have changed: A little better trigger adjustment would help. The wrench for th co 2 tank is no good at all doesn't fit properly and is soft steel.

    What others should know: A little heavy for a small shooter. Scope mounts easily and is a nice accessory for field shooting.
