By William from USA on 2010-01-25 19:07:23Things I liked:Bought 22 caliber model. Trigger pull crisp and repeatable. Very accurate at 20 meter indoor range with 14 grain pellets....15 shot groups shot at casual rest position covered with quarter; plenty good for hunting accuracy. Actually, got bored watching the shots go through the same hole (dime) with benchrest hold.
Things I would have changed:Scope supplied ended up with reticle rotating 45 degrees with respect to scope body after a dozen shots. Obviously, not up to recoil which is substantial but smooth. Put on spare RWS scope and that one works fine.
What others should know:Removed front barrel shroud and saved 13 ounces. This also shifted gun balance towards middle of gun. This gun is a handful to cock and hold offhand (9 pounds with scope), but if you're in shape not too bad. I would try for a rest position shot when hunting if possible. This gun hits HARD!! As it says in the copy, 14 grain pellets move out at 850 fps.

By Jim from USA on 2011-01-07 06:49:41Things I liked:I was a little worried that this gun was going to be hard to cock, it is not at all. If your worried about this don't be.
Things I would have changed:Nicer wood for the stock. It is really uninteresting. I think it is birch maybe.
What others should know:The web site description says the gun is "deeply blued". It is not. It is matte finish. I was at first disappointed but in thinking about it the matte finish is probably better for corrosion prevention than a blued finish. I would like to see the web site changed though.
