By Andy from USA on 2012-04-24 09:15:28Things I liked:Very good power out of the box. Great looks. Entered an all-day airsoft war and everyone had an L96. This was unique and people liked the look of it. Nice weight. Chrono was showing up to 480 with .28's which is amazing (as is from the box). A good 100 to 150 fps faster than the next best sniper on the field. If anything next time I'll use higher weight (.3 or .4 even) to get better accuracy.
Things I would have changed:Opened the box and the bb's it came with were strewn throughout. I'm sure they were garbage anyway but bag was broken. Poor directions for putting together but it's actually a very simple procedure. I'd like to see more about cleaning and maintaining the gun. It's easy to use and put together - but what about maintenance? May be too hard to pull back for 10 and under. I have no issue but my kids it takes all their might. No idea how to zero the scope - directions on that would have been nice. It's fairly accurate but could use an adjustment - I just don't know how (will look on YouTube).
What others should know:High power - hard hitting. Good looks. So far so good - no issues.

By Alan from USA on 2015-04-11 03:16:41Things I liked:Got off 10 shots before it stopped firing, only clicking after working bolt and pulling trigger...during the first and only 10 rounds, I found the SD97 to be powerful and accurate...the scope supplied was clear and easy to adjust, I almost had the rifle precisely zeroed before it broke down.
Things I would have changed:Obviously, I wish the SD97 proved to be much more durable. I would have preferred a simpler stock.
What others should know:Save the original box and packing materials that come with your shipment, until you're pretty sure you don't need to ship the gun back for defects, especially for something as large as the SD97. While Pyramyd has been really responsive in furnishing free return shipping via FedEx, it was still a hassle to repack the rifle and to get it to FedEx...the box is pretty huge and clumsy to handle. I don't think I will be ordering a rifle online for a while.
