Things I liked:Super accurate and consistent gun. A little picky on the hold, but once i got that down, I'm loving it more every single day that i shoot it. Got a Hawke 6.5-20x42AO scope for this Rifle and they seem to be perfect for each other. Went through a little bit more that 1500 JSB Match 8.4g and i find them to be a really good choice for this gun. I found it odd though that the screws came loose after about 1k shots. But i just lock-tighted it and its been good ever since. Cocking effort is spot on, I shoot it for hours at a time and it doesn't feel like a work out. It does make a weird thump from time to time.. you can hear the spring hit different but for now i can live with it. Maybe down the road a tune for this gun, until then I'm certainly going to enjoy it.
Things I would have changed:I'd take out the cheap scope mounts and not include them all together. As for the gun, I wouldn't change a thing. Amazing gun all around
Things I liked:I'm 53 and have owned many guns in my life. I can tell you that I'm as excited about this Beeman HW 97K as any rifle I have ever had. Who would think a .20cal pellet rifle could shoot dime size groups at 50 yards and straight through the front shoulders of grey squirrels at the same distance. My rifle shoots Beeman Precision FTS 11.42 GR the best. I can't tell you the one you get will do the same but I can tell you this. Mine will never be for sale.
Things I would have changed:Smaller pistol grip and a walnut stock would be nice.
What others should know:This is the first review I have ever written about anything. That's how much I like this rifle.
Things I liked:Being able to put pellet after pellet into the exact same hole out to 60 yards all day everyday. Being able to trim dandelions out to 110 yards. My friends who all made fun of me for getting a pellet rifle instead of a 'real gun' all having to eat their words. 1500 pellets functioning flawless. Shoots extremely accurately. FPS extreme spread never been above 12 with 10 shot strings. Ergonomics of grip are excellent compared to other pellet guns. This is one nice looking gun.
Things I would have changed:Go figure that the most accurate pellet in this gun JSB exact express 7.9gr Pyramid air doesn't carry. Wish they did so i could buy thousands hint hint
What others should know: I have a wrap around porch and almost always shoot rested off of the porch railing. it doesn't matter if you spent $5,000 dollars on a steyr and $2,000 grand on a scope you will not find anything other than a laser that shoots any straighter than this gun. Best long range strings so far 16 pellets in same hole no noticeable signs of more than 1 pellet being fired at 30 yards and 27 straight dandelion stems clipped between 50 to 70 yards.
