By Eric from USA on 2012-07-02 13:44:06Things I liked:It's very accurate and very quiet. A very good rifle for the price.
Things I would have changed:The bundled scope and the stock trigger. I put a UTG 5th Gen 4-16x40AO Rifle Scope ($70) on it and I love it. I also installed a GTX trigger ($33)and I'm amazed at the difference it makes. Honestly makes it feel like a different rifle. The trigger was simple to install. The whole install took me about 15 minutes.
What others should know:I think it's a great deal for the price.

By Michael from USA on 2015-06-21 10:12:11Things I liked:I like the fact that the rifle is a spring, shrouded, break barrel design. I like that fact that it was offered in .22 caliber. I liked the particular overall style of the rifle. I really like the black synthetic stock. I liked that the rifle came with the scope already mounted. I like Paul Capello's and Rick Eutsler's reviews for this air rifle.
Things I would have changed:Few things are perfect, but if I worked at Stoeger, I would insure that there be quality control tests conducted at the factory BEFORE the rifle shipped for sale (if they indeed had conducted the QC tests, then the rifle I received definitely failed). After the appropriate tests, a QC sticker on the rifle would certify that it was ready for sale (next time, I'm going to purchase Pyramyd Air's 10 for $10 certificate. It cost me $57.00 to have the rifle shipped back to PA. Ouch!). I would offer the buyer an option to purchase a better scope or just go ahead and bundle a better spec scope at an increase in price. I would address the below standard trigger. Trigger action feels rough and unrefined (you give up a few quality features or specs for the price [plus a discount from PA]).
What others should know:This was the first air rifle I purchased from Pyramyd Air. I chose this model based on several factors including specifications, online reviews, style and price (I wanted to get into the sport on a budget). Unfortunately, the particular rifle I received was defective. After reading the manual very carefully, I only managed to fire the rifle 3 times. After that, the next time I cocked and loaded a pellet into the rifle, when I raised the barrel, the rifle fired without ever touching the trigger! Luckily, I had the rifle securely pointing straight into the sky. What the...? What happened to the automatic safety feature? Thats why we should always secure the barrel while we load the pellet! Despite my disappointment and disbelief, I once again tried to cock the rifle. spring pressure was there but it would no longer remain cocked. I would like to mention, Pyramyd Air customer service was SUPER. Representative Dan courteously listened to my explanation and promptly gave me an RMA number.
