Things I liked: The power,and accuracy is amazing on this gun.Both in semi-auto and full auto mode out to 100yards. Mine is .25 caliber. I have shot 1500 pellets without any issues. The gun is reliable+not pellet fussy. Not to mention built solid with good quality. Out of all my other pcp airguns. This one is my favorite. I liked it so much that I bought two of them and can't wait for my .25 Max bullpup too..

Things I would have changed: I wish Evanix made a 15, or a 20 shot magazine..

Things I liked: I had the .25 cal version. The wood stock looks and feels great. The stock is also quite light and is easily removed via a single hex screw. Powerful- .25 cal version was shooting at an average of 49 FPE. Fun to shoot (when its working)

Things I would have changed: The premium magazine doesn't sit flush in the breech and is prone to jamming if not perfectly centered. The rifle often requires dry firing in order to remove an empty magazine as the pellet probe often was in the forward position after I was done shooting. The gun is prone to false shots / skipping pellets. Access to the battery is tedious and requires a large screwdriver The battery cables get crumpled due to the tight fit Qality Control is not very good: The barrel was extremely dirty when I unboxed it. Missing a couple of screws. The gun is very loud, even with the built in baffles.

What others should know: This is a finicky gun. When it shoots well, it's a blast. Unfortunately, mine would routinely jam as the magazine would shift off center pinning the pellet probe against the magazine. The fix required dissasembly the breach to reset the bolt which could lead to even more problems if not performed properly.

    Things I liked: I have the .22 caliber version. This is my 4th Evanix. All bought refurbished with discount and 10 for 10 testing. The stock is very nice, better than my Windy City. The air cylinder and walnut stock give it a nice, traditional look. The accuracy is very good. Shot a ringneck dove this morning at 45 yards. The automatic action. Hard to go back to side lever cocking. The magazines are well made and easy to load. Rarely jams.

    Things I would have changed: The trigger is much like shooting a digital camera - not instantaneous. There is no slack in the trigger, more like a light switch. I spend most of the time reloading :)

    What others should know: The large capacity magazine does not fit! Ball bearing is up too high. Need a center punch or something to push pellets while loading magazine. I only use BKL 11mm to Weaver adapters and Burris Signature rings with inserts (a fantastic system for air gunners to correct barrel droop) and Leopold fixed power scopes (6X on this rifle).

    Things I liked: Very accurate, good fit and finish, nice wood.

    Things I would have changed: Need outlet for external charging instead of having to remove butt pad. Wire connectors not good, need a better system of connection. Gun slow cycles in cold temps. Even the recommended 9.6 volt battery did not change this. Gun is definately not backyard friendly, loud in my opinion. Gun is also pellet fussy and kodiacs caused mine to lock up. In addition had a tendency to doubletap (two shots fired with one pull of the trigger.

    What others should know: Shoots JSB Kings Kings (.25) great. Be careful if removing stock as you will have to thread the battery wires back out through the stock. Barrel needs to be cleaned about every 400 rounds.
