By James from USA on 2013-06-19 17:40:51Things I liked:This impressive 22 cal is powerful, accurate, and quiet. A 3-9x50mil dot ret scope & one piece mount were used. JSB Diabolo Exact Jumbo (15.89gr) pellets were used for testing. It will punch thru a 1" thick pine board @ 10 yds, a 3/8" pine @ 50 yds, & a steel coffee can lid at 40 yds. It can easily shoot thru soda cans at 50 yds. It shot a 2 1/2" group @ 50 yds and a 5/8" group at 40 yds. The trigger is good, the open sights are excellent and the noise level is low.
Things I would have changed:The sling attachment clips are poor. On one occasion the snap at the butt end came loose. Luckily my hand was around the gun and it didn't fall. The gun is a little heavy because of the big scope, so a sling is very handy.
What others should know:The gun was tested on a bench. The rest consisted of a 6x6 block of wood 12" long with a length of foam pipe insulation (2 5/8"OD & 15/16"ID X 12"long)placed on top of it (held in place with some twine). The front stock rested directly on the foam and the rifle was lightly gripped. Rifle accuracy should improve when the trigger is adjusted for better "feel" and the barrel is further seasoned. The stock attachment screw loosened and the scope rotated a few degrees. The rear protective scope lens cap fell off frequently because of the recoil. (PA Service test measured pellet speed (RWS 11.9gr) @ average 870fps)

By Zotero from USA on 2015-03-10 00:33:27Things I liked:Mossy Oak Camo, it is quiet, compact, German steel, gun sling, accuracy, general feel, TRU GLO, Quattro Trigger. Have slain hundreds of pest birds with this thing on my homestead. I have birds eating & getting into animal feed, so this has been super effective. If I'm far enough, they don't hear the air gun at all, and can just drop them one by one. Have just been using open sights since I can get pretty close & the Tru Glo system is top notch. The contrast of the red against the green is, so bright, and it's super easy to sight in for accuracy. I've been getting head shots (15 yards max) no problem. They just plop over from a headshot. It is a powerful air rifle though, I've miscalculated windage one day, and hit a couple birds nowhere near their heads & the force was powerful enough to make them kill shots. I'm very pleased with this air rifle. I can go out in my camo gear & sneak up on varmints no problem & wreck them since it's so quiet.
Things I would have changed:Better scope, or A.P. for close range shooting
What others should know:It's a compact gun, I'm 6' & it's not an issue for me, but could see it be a problem for others. My gun came with a lot of extra oil. You may need to wipe it down. The .25 cal is semi-backyard friendly depending on how big your yard is. If I didn't have a cement block wall, I would be very cautious about using it, because depending on the ammo you can get some serious penetration. I've been using 5 gal buckets filled with dirt as a target trap & have had the predator polymags go right through it & hit my block wall from 20 ft. The JBS Diablo Match doesn't go through, so something to keep in mind.
