By James from USA on 2009-04-26 21:27:01Things I liked:Nice looking gun with good bluing and nicely finished stock. Mine came with a Center Point 3x9x40 adjustable objective airgun scope, and it is accurate. I purchased this gun from Pyramid in December 2008. Velocity is advertised at 1000fps with PBA non-lead ammo. I use the heavier RWS 9.3 grain supermag wadcutters and H&N Match 8.09 grain wadcutters, attaining velocities of around 900fps; quite respectable for heavy pellets.
Things I would have changed:At first, cocking was a little rough, and the recoil fore and aft was heavy, associated with a little 'twang' as the spring unloaded. The heavy two-stage trigger and the heavy recoil prevented me from achieving any real accuracy before the trigger job and tune-up.
What others should know:I installed the GRT III after-market trigger produced by Bob Werner, aka. 'CharlieDaTuna', and I had the gun tuned by Gene Curtis of Airgun Toys in South Carolina. Both actions turned this little Remington into a real shooter! At forty feet the gun will produce 10 shot groups consistantly at 3/8" diameter or less. Whether you buy this gun, a Gamo, or an RWS, they all require a little tweaking and tuning before they become real 'shooters'. Rifles advertised at 1000 fps need ammo in the 7.5 to 9.5 grain weight category. Ammo weights lighter than 7.0 or heavier than 10.0 can damage pistons and seals. The Remington Summit is a good shooter for both targets and small game, and it looks like some of its Big-Brother Remingtons. This gun is a lot fun! Jim

By charles from USA on 2007-09-21 19:05:04Things I liked:the gun has a great finish i like the trigger scope and mounts are very goog
Things I would have changed:i dont know if the spring is made in china or not i think it is because the gun is that said i bought mine a while back almost a year ago and first thing out the box it shot great open sight i was nailing everything i aimed at put the scope on and it was great but then accurary started to go like one day i took the gun to my shooting range and could not hit anything this was on my 2nd can of pellets at this point i must say that i owned a gamo shadow and it was not accurate at all out of the box i shot 1000 pellets through it gave it to my soninlaws brother a while past and the came out to shoot targets his bother had the gamo i said to him can you hit anything with it and his reply was ohyea we all started shooting and to my amazement he was knocking over targets first pull of the trigger i asked if i could try and when i did shoot it i hit the kill zone and droped the target this said i was not giving up on this gun so i shot the gun and let other,s shoot it and nobody could get it to shoot accurately i put 2000 pellets through it i dont know how much the 3 people i let have the gun put through it but one day i and my son in law and his brother went out back to shoot airguns they had just got their rm 600s i brought out the remington to shoot and while helping them with the new guns i was doing my best to sight in the summit and about 20 pellets into it i started droping the gamo steel targets i was happy i was thinking the gun was coming around but somewhere between 20pellets and the sun going down the spring broke so the gun got shiped to crosman and i have it back and i have been shooting it once in a while and have hit some targets but i have not put it to the test yet waiting for cooler weather here in fla if it turns out to be just as bad as before i will hang it on the wall as a dust collector because it is to late to get my money back
