By Matthew from USA on 2009-09-23 12:52:48Things I liked:Well lets see the stock is the best i have ever seen on an air rifle! This Gun is very quiet!!!! great rich blueing I was amazed on the speed out of the .22 with the JSB Diabolo Exact Jumbo Heavy 18.1 Grains, Domed, im getting around 900-950fps like 32 to 36 ft/pounds As for Accuracy well lets just say its was sighted in at 20 yards, 30 yards shoots are a little high but at 40-50-60 yards cross hairs dead on making head shots to squirrels all day long cant beat that. The cocking of the gun never jams it’s all steal nice and heavy duty the Trigger is great take up the slack with the first stage then a nice clean second stage break im guessing maybe 2 pound pull that means you will “not” tweak the gun trying to get a heavy trigger back over all a great gun if you have the money to spend you wont regret it
Things I would have changed:I would change the clip a little the only problem I was having was the pellets would fall back and when the clip Rotates the pellet skirts might hit the main block that the clip sits in it really only happened when I was using the predator polymag pellets so when you cock the gun make sure the pellets are in place as for the JSB Diabolo Exact Jumbo Heavy 18.1 Grains they did not slip at all but both were shooting great dead on target at 20 to 50 yards even at a 100 yards held two mill dots high and still getting out there with in 3in but that could have been me moving around
What others should know:As for the baffles there are 3 long tubes and like 6 little caps in there what I had to do was take the 3 long tubes and make the holes in them the same size as the holes in the 6 caps because the pellet was clipping the tubs and making my grouping go hay wire the sound is the same as before and just works 1000 times better. As for the bar gage I guess they are having some problems with them working but they sent me a new one and I did the install and now works great. Just to let you know the gun is heavy!!!!

By Rodger from USA on 2009-05-19 00:25:37Things I liked:I bought the .22 caliber right handed version... After I got the shroud's baffles sorted out, this rifle is VERY accurate. It's also VERY powerful. It also has a very nice two stage trigger.
Things I would have changed:I have a feeling Evanix rushed the production of the Blizzard just a bit to beat the Murauder to market. This decision may give a bad reputation to a really nice (but heavy) rifle. The first "clip" of pellets (JSB 18.1 gr. Diablos) I fired at a target gave a "group" that looked like I was shooting a shotgun. They also went clear through the plywood backing of my "quiet" pellet trap from 25 yds away. Whoa!! That power is why I didn't just box the gun up and send it back to Pyramyd. I pulled the shroud off the barrel and then pushed the delrin baffles out. Every one of the baffles showed evidence of pellet clipping. I went ahead and bored out the baffles and the brass muzzle piece to .3125" (5/16ths) and reassembled it. Ah what a difference. I fired five more Diablos and they all went through the same hole (and blew the back out of my repaired and reinforced pellet trap, again...). I didn't detect any increase in the noise of the shots due to my "modification". I've since fired another hundred or so pellets through my "Blizzard" and it does deserve that "5" I gave it for accuracy... now.
What others should know:The rifle with a good scope weighs almost 10 pounds. If you were carrying it through the woods hunting it would make for a very long day. I wish they'd have put sling studs on it.
