By Alex from USA on 2011-01-05 11:56:04Things I liked:The feeling, it's more on the heavy side. Cocking it, is a pleasure. I like the feature that the safety is engaged automatically. It is accurate, low noice. The power is excellent for target shooting or plinking.
Things I would have changed:I think that the wood work can be better. After recerving mine, I started polishing the wood with household polishers, now it looks much better.
What others should know:For the price, this rifle is a bargain.

By Randall from USA on 2013-02-28 11:58:50Things I liked:The X5 is an easy cocking all day shooter with a lot going for it. The quality of the workmanship, and the excellent fit and finish are beyond what one might expect from a sub $100 airgun. And for those who like to tinker with, or tune their guns, it is an easy gun to dis and re-assemble. The is a notch in the top of the receiver, at the rear of the dovetail for a scope stop. It's also quite accurate, and 1/4" groups from 10 yards are easily obtained. The X5 shoots well using H&N Sport (8.18 gr) pellets. My gun, which I tune lubed, averages 545 fps. A serious gun for a modest cost makes this Stoeger a best buy.
What others should know:Lockup of the barrel is snug, and so, a forward slap of the muzzle brake may be necessary for cocking.
