By Zack from Pakistan on 2012-07-02 15:38:47Things I liked:Power, Looks, Accuracy, Adjust-ability, Muzzle break/Silencer, Trigger, Sling, Is there anything left??
Things I would have changed:The included bipod is plastice not metal (as posted on PA specifications)and is not much of a use unless it was fitted with a more sturdy spring which would provide reasonable clamping power. If only the stock would be in Turkish Walnut :D
What others should know:I did not purchase from PA, I'm from Pakistan & I got an optima 3-9x44e scope with the package along with an extra scope stop. i am 6f 3" and 94 Kgs, and this gun gives me a workout. It is not for kids, it is for strong adults as it is long, heavy and got a fair bit of kick, and takes a fair amount of cocking effort. I haven't scoped my gun yet, have shot at least 70 pellets through it without making a single bit of adjustment to the installed fiber optic sights and out of the box this gun is DEADLY accurate and powerful. We do not have access to the whole JSB, H&N, Crossman pellet lines. The pellets available to us are H&N wadcutters, Gamo pro magnum, Gamo match, and Gamo pointed. I used Gamo pro magnum pellets with good result, tighter groups (2 cm x 3 cm) at 10 yards open sights. H&N wadcutters are lighter, produced 1.8cm x 3.75 cm groups at 10 yards with open sights with occasional flyers and atleast 3 pellets producing a louder than usual crack. It is imperative that you use artillery hold for best results. So far I am VERY pleased with my purchase.

By Ronald from USA on 2012-03-02 15:59:07Things I liked:Fills like a solid rifle and I believe the power is as described.
Things I would have changed:Trigger does not live up to claims. It does not seem to matter where you set the screws on the trigger there is very little change on the lbs of of pull. The trigger seems to be set around 4lbs and I could not get it to change. The screw was already turned all the way clockwise when I got the rifle( as much reduced pull as possible). Unscrewing the screw which should cause a higher pull does not seem to do so. Screwing it back in all way makes no difference either. Same thing with stage 1 pull screw. I am shooting Beemen Kodiaks, which have worked very well for me in the past in other air rifles, which only provides a 1.5 inch grouping at 10 yds so not very accurate. At 10 yds with my other air rifles I have groupings smaller than a dime.
What others should know:I have not had the rifle out side for further yardage shooting but disappointed in accuracy at 10 yds. Even with the claimed recoil suppressor the gun kicks like most of the piston rifles I have shot before. I took the scope stop block off so I could move the scope mount to the very back of scope rail. Even with mount screws tighten very tightly the scope mounts slip because of the recoil. I had to put the scope block back. FYI, I am using a much more expense scope than the one that came with the gun.
