Things I liked:Every thing, from the finishes(wood and metal), trigger pull, accuracy. Top of its class!
Things I would have changed:Make an thumb hold model.
What others should know:Do you want to be proud of your air rifle. Buy a Pro Sport.
Things I liked:This gun is very nice. I actually got two of these as the first one had a problem, but Pyramyd air fixed it up right away. This gun will shoot one-hole groups out past 40 yards. The trigger is very smooth and predictable. It is not very pellet fussy at all and has shot well with about 90% of the pellets that I have tried. I have settled in on the JSB Diabolo Heavy. It shoots that pellet in the high 700's for a little over 13.6 ft/lbs. It has very little recoil and the muzzle report is very low. I would guess the shroud and baffles are doing their job. Given the weight of the gun with the Hawke 6-24x56 scope, it balances very well and shoots nicely off-hand.
Things I would have changed:The stock fits shoulders very well, but the finish is not what I would expect of a gun at this price. On the subject of price, this is a VERY expensive gun. It was a bit difficult to pony up this much money for an airgun. I don't think the quality is any better than my R-1 which is over $100 less. The trigger feels very nice, but it is a bit of a pain to get it set up. The instructions were of no help. I had to look at the parts break down of the trigger to determine what each screw did in order to get it to work the way I thought it should. I am at about 500 shots through it and it has gotten smoother, but it still has a bit of spring twang. It does NOT come out of the box shooting like a tuned gun.
What others should know:It was very hard to spend this much money on a rifle this expensive. It is made very well and it does shoot nicely. I cannot decide if I like this gun better than my R1. The recoil in much more tame on the ProSport. The right-handed stock shoulders much better. The R1 is made every bit as nicely with a better finish on the stock. The Beeman has two more ft/lbs of power and is cheaper. The triggers do feel differently, but to pick one, its a toss-up.
Things I liked:This is an excellent rifle. When shipped it was tested with hobby pellets and yielded 785 fps and 14.4 ft. #, but this is a pellet that it does not particularly like. With Crossman premiers it gives 721.6 fps (1" 10 shot groups at 35 yards, and with JSB Jumbo Heavies it produces 635 fps (3/4" groups at 35 yds., with 8 of the 10 in less than 1/2"). Both at over 16 ft.-# of energy. I also have a TX200 in .177, and the Pro Sport is slightly more shootable for me (I like the balance better,as the TX is somewhat barrel heavy). This is probably due to the fact that I am no good offhand and always use a rest of some kind, or pass up the shot.
Things I would have changed:A sling swivel yoke attached to the front stock bolts so that it could swing forward to clear the cocking lever would be very nice.
What others should know:Both this gun and my TX200 (.177) are not hold sensitive except for using a very loose grip on the trigger hand. Using a loose grip here seems to shrink 30 yard groups from 1" to 5/8" - 1/2" with JSB heavies in both calibers (these being my best pellets to date).
