Things I liked:This is...amazing to me. I've never won anything in my life that didn't require sitting through an 11 hour spiel on Mexican time shares. Yeah, I'm the one that won it, and thanks to all, particularly to Stormy helping me through a (completely) unexpected experience. As much a high report on Pyramid Air as the rifle itself. The thing that stands out on first look is the electroless nickel finish. I've never cared much for either stainess steel (sharp & unpleasant to hold) or gloss nickel (gaudy & peels eventually.) But since acquiring a government model in electroless nickel, I'm sold. And then there's the stupendous walnut stock...everything the other reviewers say is true. The ability to stack one pellet on top of another doesn't hurt either. Fabulous trigger. Coupled with the 6.5X-20X Hawke scope, it's a combination that will quickly teach all of us both how good something like this can be and teach you how to drastically improve our scores. If you miss, it ain't the rifle.
Things I would have changed:While plastic magazines have given me no trouble, they could be a little more substantial. The power control, while marked could definitely use some repeatable click-stops. I'd like some sling studs should I eventually want to take it to the woods.
What others should know:One of the goofy things about this largess is how it's affecting my plans for airgunning. The plan had been to slowly work through some inexpensive european CO2 guns, then when ready, pick up a high-ish end springer, and then ultimately, something like a Feinwerkbau, or...an Air Arms...or... So now, the collection exists, no regrets on any of them. But now I have to learn the fine points of something pretty different. PCP. If you're a newbe to PCP, Tom Gaylord's blog is one of the great resources hosted by Pyramyd air. Reading past posted blogs is terrific...and practical education And the one thing to know is the wonderful customer service you get with Pyramyd Air.
Things I liked:Beautiful walnut, metal work, and craftsmanship! .22 cal Achieving 36 FPE with barracuda 21g. Powerful and accurate. Able to shoot teaspoons 1 inch at 100 yrds very easily. Very easy to shoot accurately at any reasonable range for an airgun with a quality scope.
Things I would have changed:QD sling mounts would have been nice.
What others should know:Quiet, powerful, accurate, consistent, and beautiful. What more could you ask for? Very intuitive easy to use straight from the box....did I mention the nice hard case it comes with? Achieves 34 thru 36 FPE with pellets from JSB 16 and 18 gr and H&N Barracuda 21gr. Paired well with Hawke Sidewinder 6x24 56mm. Within 3 weeks, have taken squirrels from 37 to 93 yards with authority.
Things I liked:EVERYTHING. This is maybe the nicest looking rifle i've ever owned - and I HAVE way more than a fair assortment.. The case provides an excellent presentation of this 30th Anniversary Edition and all the accoutrements are beautiful as well. I love it.
Things I would have changed:When all the "new" gets knocked off the case - if that ever happens - it would be nice to be able to cut the foam and add stuff to the inside of the case in the clear areas, such as another one or two cuts to allow for extra tins of pellets, etc.
What others should know:Be prepared for the "oohs" and "ahhs" from admirers when you lift the lid on this beauty and show it to your envious pals and fellow shooters. My daughter was impressed and she doesn't even shoot.
