Things I liked:This is an extremely accurate rifle. With JSB Exacts I get sub 1/4" groups at 25 yards. Plenty of power for small game and pest control. The stock itself is just gorgeous! It seems to have a soft glow to the wood. Lots of people seem to comment on the weight but although it's heavy it's wonderfully balanced with just slight weight forward. I will admit, this rifle absolutely has a break in period. When I first started shooting the groups were less then great even when using perfect artillery hold. I decided to hold off on doing the review until I had a full tin of JSB Exacts through it and WHAT A DIFFERENCE! To say that every part of this gun preforms better after about 500 shots is an understatement. It is literally night and day difference. I would not trade or sell this rifle for the world it's that good! Just stick with it and you will be rewarded.
Things I would have changed:1.The Freaking stupid tiny screws that hold on the muzzle brake. Save yourself lots and lots of head aches when you first receive this RWS, remove the muzzle brake and put two (2) drops of Blue thread lock in each of the two screw holes. Re-attach the muzzle brake and snug the two tiny screws down. Then the most important part put the rifle somewhere out of sight for 24 hrs. Once these two little screws have set up you will be free and clear to start seeing the amazing accuracy of this rifle (note: the front cap on the muzzle brake did not loosen on me when shot but I still put a couple drops of blue thread locker on those threads just to be safe you might as well since it will be sitting for 24hrs anyway :)) 2:Scope The scope that comes with it is good on a scale of 1-10 it sits at a solid 7. That being said the scope had very loose windage adjustments. The elevation gave a solid reassuring click with each adjustment. The windage had no click at all but it still adjusted crosshairs accordingly with how much you turned it. This may very well not be every scope but it may have been just the one I had. Still this was not a big deal and definitely would not discourage me from ordering the same thing all over again. 3. VERY Slight surface rust IF you have prolonged use in very humid or moist conditions. Let me first be clear that this is NOT specifically a pro compact issue. I have 5 RWS rifles all will get this if I dont wipe them down with a very lightly oiled rag a EASY FIX :
What others should know:The scope mount that comes with the gun is plenty adequate and I actually like it very much. The one and only item I would suggest as an unnecessary but fantastic improvement would be to purchase a Center Point 4x16x40mm adventure class scope to put on it. That is what I currently have on it and it fits like it was made just for this gun! I am consistently taking down pesky house sparrows (These are legal to shoot where I am) anywhere from 15 to 50 yards. Well worth the money (70$ ish) to pair with such a fantastic rifle. Last but not least. The people working at Pyramyd Air were just FANTASTIC to deal with. Very polite, knowledgeable and ready to help. Do not have any reservations about purchasing from them they truly are honest and reliable people. Hope this review helps. Shoot straight Be Safe and always check local laws.
Things I liked:I like the way the rifle feels. It's heavy, but not to heavy. It recoils very little because of the weight. It is accurate!!!
Things I would have changed:The trigger is a little to light for my liking.
What others should know:It took A few shots to get used to the trigger, but I would not change it for some others I have used. This is part of the reason the rifle is so accurate.
Things I liked:This rifle has been incredible! I was very impressed from the first time I took it out of the box. It is hefty and it SCREAMS German quality! Very solid rifle. Accuracy has been outstanding too. The wood grain is very classy and professional. I was all set up to purchase the synthetic stock version but I'm so glad I splurged and chose the wood stock at the last minute. The scope works great for me. Some people mentioned upgrading it. I don't see a need for that any time soon but always an option later if I change my mind. No issues so far with loosening of scope or shroud due to following others' advice about using locktite. The hardest thing was making myself wait for it to dry before shooting it! I got the 10 for $10 as recommended by others and glad I did. Everything is well lubed and action closes crisp and tight.
Things I would have changed:Maybe streamline the scope base ? The scope base that comes with the rifle is a little primative looking but appears very sturdy / functional. Other than that maybe add a set of carry strap studs on the ventral portion of the stock.
What others should know:Make sure you pay attention to the weight listed. With the solid stock, scope and shroud on, the weight is more like holding up a Garand. Here's a comparison. Put a broomstick through the handle on a 1 gallon jug of water and hold the broom up like a rifle. That's a fairly close estimate. This was a bit of a surprise at first but also adds to the feeling of quality to me. If this is an issue for you maybe look at one with sites on the barrel instead of scope and shroud. I still love this little beastie. Especially the short overall length. The shroud really makes it easy to cock the action and gives the gun a great tactical look. It's a humbling yet proud feeling when I realized I own a pellet rifle that is more accurate than I am. Ha! Plenty of room to grow into this beast! I will be keeping this rifle for the rest of my life. Always be safe and have fun! Tony
