Things I liked: It's compact put together and even more compact stowed away. It has a full metal barrel and receiver and shoots well too. One of the coolest things is seeing smoke come out of this. It's pretty accurate, easy to break, and a decent weight. The scope isn't bad either. A good starter gun and doesn't feel childish.
Things I would have changed: Longer stock and iron sights. I'm not a fan of continuously putting on the scope to hit targets. The stock is made of plastic (doesn't feel cheap until you get to the butt stock) and the gun will be front heavy because of that. Lower the cheek plate if the stock is gonna be this short.
What others should know: Good plinker and (with the right ammo) can do some damage. You use an allen key (comes with) to loosen the receiver (barely). Then you insert the barrel and use the allen key to tighten it up. After that, you're ready to shoot. Therefore, nice simple rifle.
Things I liked: Pretty quiet for back yard shooting.I like the fact that it's a take down rifle and has a nice case.The gun is capable of 1/4" groups at 39 feet/13 yards shooting from a table with a small portable bench rest.That is, if I do my job.I've run maybe 400 pellets through it so far, and it's been 100% reliable and a good shooter.I consider this gun a very good buy, and it's a keeper.
Things I would have changed: The gun shoots well enough that I just ordered a new Leapers scope from our hosts.
What others should know: My 1024 shoots really well with three Gamo pellets::the Gamo Match wadcutters;the Gamo Hunters; and the Gamo Magnums, with the best groups being the Magnums. Other pellets it likes are the Beeman Silver Bears and Laser Sports. I don't need 1000 fps and wanted something pretty quiet.This gun is working out well for me. If you don't need magnum velocities, then this gun is worth your consideration, and a great buy at $60.00.It's my first "springer" and doesn't seem to be one that is very "hold sensative".
Things I liked: Great looking, looks and feels similar to my Remington 597 .22 LR Stainless Rifle. I like that it is accurate, comes with a scope, easy cocking low effort for a decent power. I like that it actually has a little kick similar to a .22 LR, must be the spring giving the little kick to your shoulder. Cool smoke after each shot.
Things I would have changed: Sound of the spring when shooting, but it's not bad, actually when you get used to it, it gives you a feel of shooting a .22 LR.
What others should know: It didn't take me very long to adjust the scope, even though it's not the best scope, but I have bought scopes that cost more than this whole gun with the scope. I am able to shoot 1" groups at 50 feet with the scope. I added a laser, clamped to the compensator, looks menacingly cool. Great fun in the basement.
