    Things I liked:Great 10 meter target rifle. This rifle has won many Gold Medals in the International Junior League. Wether young or old you will like this rifle. It is made to punch targets in same hole, not shoot game. However it is plenty enough for some such uses. Grooved for scope mount or use standard sights. extra clip and cleaning rod. Be careful not to double feed, as they are dificult to clear, you have to knock em out with the cleaning rod from the muzzle so be careful not to bugger the rifling. All IZH guns have hammer forged barrels as opposed to cut rifling, companies generally cannot afford the massive equipment to hammer forge, probably why these shoot so good. Just cheap ole Crosman wadcutters will follow each other, try some others too if you want one ragged hole. Pleasant to use, easy cock, not loud at all. Nice for basement in winter for everyone to share. Their Match pistol is a Olympic Medal winner too.

    Things I liked:Easy to cock, decent trigger, magazine loading
    Things I would have changed:I have 2 purcased around december 09 and they are both horribly inaccurate. I cannot reliably hit 8.5 x 11" target at 10 meters. The "groups" are about 1ft if I am lucky. I can throw a pellet more accurately. I have tried open sites and 2 new bugbuster scopes, and an old japanese Tasco. I have tried 6 types of pellets, and none work. It is not me, I can shoot my Hw35 better without sights. I suspect the pellets are being deformed by the loading mechanism as some forums indicate (google it).
    What others should know:Be sure to send it back in 30 days if it is anaccurate. The barrels were horribly dirty, and rifling is not as good looking as my other rifles, and pistols. It may be the dirt. I shot about 20 cleaning pellets, and the are still comming out more dirty that my 35 year old hw35 that wasn't cleaned for 20 years.. I thought that since two were showing the same inaccuracy, it may have been pellets, breakin or lack of lubrication. Unfortunately, by the time weather permitted a good test, my 30 days were up. I will be sending both in for warranty work.

      Things I liked:Where do I start? This gun is incredibly accurate. One hole groups sitting and standing from 20 feet are commonplace including one 10 shot group within .4 CTC with iron sights. I don't see what the big deal is with the looks. It looks to me like a combination of sniper rifle, assault rifle, and target rifle and a bit of a space gun with the best of each. Why not? It looks cool. The stock is also very ergonomic and lines up the sights very naturally. The whole thing radiates solidity and quality, and the price is amazing. The low power makes it perfect for indoor apartment shooting which you could not do at higher power.
      Things I would have changed:Stock is a little short at full extension although perhaps that's because I'm 6'2". But the stock is rock steady when extended. The scope rail is a little short but it fits a red dot scope easily enough as well as the Leapers Bug Buster that I plan on getting. A more detailed manual with maintenance instructions would be nice. So would a safety.
      What others should know:This gun, like most springers, needs the artillery hold which basically is a loose hold with the foreend supported on the flat of the hand. For more interesting details see the Pyramidair blog. Crosman Premier Lights work very well with this gun and seat properly in the clip--much more than Gamo Match. But perhaps there is an even better pellet out there. Fantastic deal and great gun. If it was better in the all metal configuration, I don't need to know.

      Things I liked:The looks are very original. Accuracy is superb, I can easily hit a 12 gram co2 cartridge at 35 ft with open sights! It is extremely easily to cock (around ten pounds of force) and shoot (one pound trigger). The trigger is very good, you can fully adjust it to how you like it (I left mine how it was when I first got it though). It is one of the lightest air rifles out there! You can also add a scope if you wish to! The barrel is indeed one of the best you can find out there, it is hammer-forged and rifled (and the Russians do know something about barrels). It is built to last, nothing on mine has broken since I have bought it (it's been around a year since I bought it). I still cannot emphasize on how accurate it is, I'm in my schools rifle team and we use the Daisy Avanti air rifle but if I could (or had a choice), I would instantly chose the IZH-61 over the Avanti anyday (yeah, its that good!!). This rifle is very customizable from the barrel to the sights to the length of the stock! My friend hit a quarter at 26 feet the FIRST time he shot this rifle. Again accuracy is by far the best thing about this rifle
      Things I would have changed:I would change all the plastic this rifle has (the stock, body, grip is made up of plastic) and change it for wood. The stock isn't the most comfortable out there and it is a little wobbly when fully extended. It is very tedious to maintain (oil, cleaning, etc). One major thing that I would change is to make the whole rifle left-handed (I'am left-handed). Also the magazine is very easy to lose especially when you eject it (it goes flying if you don't catch it) and you tend to get jams when you are not using match pellets, and the pellets do tend to fall out when you load it. The last thing is that I would increase the velocity to around 600 fps (mine is at 478 fps average with Crosman Premier) so it is more versatile.
      What others should know:Clean the barrel with the barrel rod it comes with the first time you get it. DO NOT use any other type of cleaning rod since the barrel is hammer-forged and you risk damaging the rifling that it has. Try to use only Premier Match pellets because those fit perfectly with the magazine and you will not have any jams if you do. They also seat better in the magazine, plus that is what the rifle was made for [accuracy], so feed it its favorite pellet and you'll hit the bulls eye everytime. Clean it every three months and don't forget to oil it!

      Things I liked:Best 20 yard soda can killer for the buck. Shoots five on a nickle at 10 yds with open sights.
      Things I would have changed:Rear stock a little wobbly fully extended.
      What others should know:A scope would be a bit of "over Kill" but then don't we all. Try 7 gr hobby ammo, and seat them in the mag. If you don't have one, get one or two. Hours of backyard plinking at a very low price

      Things I liked:adjustable stock, 5 shot capability, side cocking, NOT barrel break! easy adjusting sights, 3 way adjustable trigger... ACCurate !!!!
      Things I would have changed:need some sort of clip retainer. If it pops free outdoors, you're all done. the is a spare clip but you can't load singlly. got to have that clip. I might put a string on mine!!
      What others should know:the kid down the block wont have one as cool.
