By primo from USA on 2012-03-02 20:47:23Things I liked:This rifle is the same as the cfx except for the stock . That being said if you have the money and want to buy the most affordable and accurate underlever on the market don't think twice order it. This rifle is so accurate at 20 -30- 40 plus yards that it can become boring almost impossible to miss with a good scope ,ie: the Leapers 3x9x40.
Things I would have changed:NOTHING
What others should know:The gun did not perform well with open sights so get a good scope it's well worth the investment you'll get tons of fun for your buck. The rifle shoots just as good as other underlevers which are priced way up there in the big bucks. It's not a super powerful rifle although if you place a shot correctly on small critters it's effective. The rifle is for precision and that is where you get your money's worth, believe me it will make you chuckle like a kid when you shoot it.

By primo from USA on 2012-04-06 08:18:02Things I liked:This rifle has excellent accuracy for its price. As an under lever it can compete with others that are way more expensive . Looks are superb & the scope it brings works fine. You can make dime size groups with it at 20 yard,not to noisy,backyard friendly in that sense. Good gun all around ,and it has good safety features in the way you have to load it. Shoots very well with Gamo pellets 7.56 grains gets 900 plus feet per second consistently . Scope is almost mandatory ,but with practice it performs decent with open sights,the ones it brings are really good ,and made of metal. The Gamo pellets I mentioned are a very good all around pellet inexpensive ,a very good deal at Pyramyd.
Things I would have changed:As a spring rifle it should be easier to maintain. Once you get to shoot it a lot the gun will demand maintainance . You can be sure that this rifle because of it's very good accuracy will hook you into shooting thousands of shots . The issue is that it has a rotary port with an inner seal that is a pain in the neck to change,and the breech seal also. Gamo does not make it any easier they don't sell parts other than to pro.gunsmiths. So you get a good gun that you like a lot ,but the maintainance is annoying.
What others should know:The rifle is very accurate,and it's an "inexpensive" way to get into accurate underlever guns. The rifle is not hold sensitive,it's got good power and its kick is hardly felt. It's good for off hand shootings, and a lot of shooters agree. I wish this rifle came with a seal kit or that one were easy to find. Gamo makes fine guns,but it has a whole bunch to learn from RWS.
