Things I liked:Compact, lightweight, easy to use, no frills - utilitarian. Very accurate and not fussy about pellets. Shooting 22cal. Premiers and getting nickel size groups at 25 yds. Pretty quiet considering 800+ fps at power level 4 (of 12). About 20 FPE. Comes with the sound loc kit installed. Like the quick fill port on the tank and the large tank capacity. Lot's of shots before a refill is needed. Standard rails offer lots of mounting options for accessories. Overall good value for the money.
Things I would have changed:The stock butt / shoulder pad is underwhelming. I gave it a quick remedy with an aftermarket recoil pad and some plastic tape. Looks funky but works great and improves the pull length for me.
What others should know:Needs some sights / optics. If you have normal anatomy - I. E. you have a neck between your head and shoulders you will probably want to elevate your scope. Or be prepared to scrunch down to get your sight picture. I added the Air Force tri rail to the scope rail, with a Leapers dovetail to Weaver adapter, with high scope mounts, to get the Leapers UTG 4x16 50mm scope into a comfortable and easy to access position. Sweet setup for me. So far this has been a lot of fun.
Things I liked:Superb piece of equipment! I like my .22 caliber very much. It is quieter than I expected, so nice surprises all around. I was a little hesitant about the short barrel, but after shooting it for a couple of weeks, I will definitely be squirrel hunting with it this fall. Powerful and accurate! No doubt, it is deadly on squirrels/rabbits out to 40 yards, and probably 50.
Things I would have changed:Forestock! Way too small for my large hands. With the large scope on top and a pistol grip, it tends to want to wobble left and right on the shooting bench. 1/4" added to EACH side of the foregrip to widen it would just about do it. Also, AirForce is missing sales by not offering it in olive drab or CAMO!!!
What others should know:If you keep your tank filled without letting it go below 1500 psi, it is much easier to maintain. I've gotten used to the workouts on the pump and actually find them healthy! 50 pumps at a time go fast.
Things I liked:Accurate with the right pellets; quiet enough for backyard plinking; nice dimension and power combination; cute looking.
Things I would have changed:Fill gauge inaccurate (300 psi +), as have been commented by many reviewers, needs better quality control. male adapter cover loose, needs better design.
What others should know:Picky on the type of pellets you've chosen. The best pellet i've tried: .22 JSB Jumbo Exact 15.89 grain; Very easy to fill up with Hill Pump; 2000 to 3000 psi, two sessions each session 5 minutes. At power setting 6, you could get 50 good shots. It's not as quiet as Air Arms rifle, but quiet enough for backyard use.
