Things I liked:Looks good, feels good and has tons of tuning options and is suppose to be a killer gun when working......
Things I would have changed:Is there any quality control at Air Force or PA? I received the gun and everything looked great. Got it all setup, barrel cleaned ect. Went to add air to the tank and it begins leaking from the burst disk plug. The disk wasn't busted as it was a slow steady leak that took 3 hours to leak from 2000psi to 800psi. I contacted PA and they were VERY helpful but that didn't help the fact that the air gun I was so excited about now had to be returned. I highly suggest paying the $10 to have Pyramid Air test the gun before shipping it out. After doing some research it seems the leaky tank is something they're known for. Hope I get it back before the weekend because I'm sure when it actually works it will be awesome.
What others should know:American made means nothing. I hate to say it but the number of issues with these guns/tanks makes me believe they are putting the kits together and shipping them out the door without checking them over. There is no way there was ever any air in the tank prior to me adding it. Otherwise someone would've surely realized the leaky tank and I would've been shooting stuff instead of shipping my gun back.
Things I liked:The sound lock air suppression. Comparable in loudness to my .25 cal mrod! I also really like the ability to fill the gun w/o removing the tank. The top hat is very vulnerable to damage (bending) with having to remove the tank each time to fill. Also, I like having the pressure gauge and the spin lock system. Spin lock system keeps the tank from unscrewing inadvertently and maintains the orientation of the valve in relation to the hammer. The gun does not seem to have the POI shifting that my old full sized condor used to have from shooting session to session. I really think the condor is really too powerful for any other platform than .25 cal. I like the simplicity and modular design of the gun. Also, the light weight and the ability to separate the gun to fit in a small carrying case for ease of transport.
Things I would have changed:I don't like how the gun cannot be decocked!! I think that is a dangerous feature. However you can hold the delrin breech before you pull the trigger, so that you keep the hammer from hitting the valve but this is not ideal. My gun was shooting faster at the lowest power wheel setting compared to the highest. It was probably due to the tophat setting being too far out and bounding off of the valve at the higher settings. I would add an additional collar near the end of the barrel for an additional anchor point.
What others should know:This is not the gun you want to fill with a hand pump. I recommend already having a scba tank to fill with. This gun takes technique to shoot similar to a spring piston gun. Be advised about the learning curve. If you are expecting the ease of shooting and consistency like other pcp's you are choosing the wrong gun. If you want power, the ability to change calibers and relatively quiet operation this is a good choice. I would consider this gun to be back yard friendly especially if you keep the power wheel on the lowest setting. Consider turning in the top hat to .85" from the factory setting of 0.1" or place a small oring behind the top hat to flatten out your power curve.
Things I liked:I just cant get over the accuracy of this rifle. At 40 yards I was able to put ten shots into less than a dime size pattern.
Things I would have changed: trying to get a hose set up to go from the rifle to a 4500 tank was 2 weeks of hell. ( I'm glad I didn't give up and send the rifle back.) Better info on the fittings would be helpful.
