Things I liked: This gun is fantastic!!! I was a bit leary about spending 1500 bucks for an air rifle, but if your serious about air guns you wont be dissapointed. This gun is at least as accurate as my condor but not quite as powerful, still very powerful. The side lever action is smooth and precise. The trigger is really nice out of the box and is fully adjustable, havent tried adjusting it yet, could use a little less second stage travel. Mounted a 4-16x50 leapears scope, i like these scopes, it's my 3rd one and they all are great particulary at less than a 100 bucks. I use the accushot high rings but probably could have used medium rngs. The gun is a bit heavy but has nice balance. The stock is gorgeous, no flaws at all in the wood. This gun is a show piece. I also had the 10 for 10$ test. 1st shot was 1080 10th shot was 1050, but that was with 11.4 gr pellets PA should use a heavier pellet more suited to the gun for their test. JSB exact jumbo heavy 18.1 gr seem to shoot very well, at 10 yrds. same hole time after time. The only reason i didnt giv this gun 5 stars for value was price, but that is splitting hairs, you get what you pay for. I would buy this again in a heartbeat.
Things I would have changed: Comes with a very very nice case, but with a large scope mounted wont fit. If case was 1 inch wider all would be good. But i can use it for 1 of my other air rifles.
What others should know: Regardless of the #2 loudness rating, this gun is pretty dang loud, not as loud as my condor, but not far behind. If condor is a 5 this gun is a solid 4.
