By fsh_whisper from USA on 2010-01-19 09:19:08Things I liked:I ordered the big bore a couple years ago (old model) and the gun just keeps on impressing me. With .454 lead swagged balls from hornady at 50 yards i get compleat pass throughs on a 50 gallon steel drum. This gun has HIGH POWER and should be treated exactally like a firearm. I have dropped several deer with it out to 60 yards, and have plowed over a couple of coyotes. If you spend a bit of time with your gun it's VERY accurate, for fun shot a couple squirles in the head at 40 yards. Nice gun, well balanced, and with a Leapers Bug Buster scope very accurate
Things I would have changed:Would prefer a bolt action loading port rather than the slide cover port. With the port set up it makes it a pain to seat the ball, or pellet into the barrel. It is LOUD, although a much diff. sound than a firearm.
What others should know:The neighbors hear it fire, but through conversations with them they really have no idea what it actually is. However this is not a backyard plinker and DONT buy it for that. This gun also takes alot of air, so if your not in shape enough to do some seriose hand pumping go the scuba tank route. It's a fine rifle, and be prepaired if you show it to friends cuz they are gonna want it !!!

By Ronald from USA on 2013-01-25 10:57:29Things I liked:Value for the money - if you want a big bore air rifle its hard to beat the 909S. Lots of power for not a lot of money. I also like the looks of the single tube.
Things I would have changed:The trigger. The trigger on this rifle is absolutely terrible. Its gritty and the pull weight is somewhere in the double-action revolver range. There are tuners out there that can fix that though but I sure wish it came with a good trigger like many other top of the line airguns.
What others should know:If you're going to put a scope on this rifle - and you really need to to get the kind of performance its capable of - you will need the highest rings you can get. I used BKL high rings with a scope with a 40mm objective and still had to remove the rear sight blade to make it work. This is because the rear sight is very tall.
