Things I liked:The way it is put together - it oozes quality from every angle - and the way it performs.
Things I would have changed:The stock - I wish they went back to the more expensive but more appropriate Monte Carlo stock design.
What others should know:This gun is an example of workmanship and quality. It is superbly accurate, enough that you can use it in target competition. In 22 it delivers more power than the HW90, but with much greater accuracy, less noise, and more reliability. The trigger is superb. The barrel lock is extremely solid. The cocking effort is very reasonable. If only the stock comb were higher.
Things I liked:I got my R1 in .22cal today its beautiful right out of the box tipical HW/beeman quality, this one seems well lubed already no spring noise, it is not at all hold sensitive, very mild recoil. I had it zeroed at 12yds in 6 shots and rezeroed at 30yds in less than 20 with a leepers 3x9x40ao mildot scope and an RWS lock down mount.It is already shooting a ragged hole with cphp's at 30yds and I've only fired 30rnds thru the rifle so the best is yet to come with this one. Mark 611
Things I would have changed:this is a very solid rifle but alittle heavy my HW95 has spoiled me on that.
What others should know:This is a great air rifle alittle expensive but well worth it for the quality you get, this is a gun for a life time smooth cocking very accurate and well made. These HW/Beeman airguns are the top of the mountian in my book I have several of them and ya can't beat 'em
Things I liked:I bought my R1 in 1987. I was managing a facility that had hundreds of nesting pigeons. The pigeon removal contractors wanted ~$500 and the R1 was ~$300, so I got the R1 and cleared out the roosting birds. Since then it has kept the rabbits from over-running the garden, reduced the squirrel population and once, in a shot I will always remember, killed a woodchuck with a single headshot at almost 75 yards. (an anomaly, most woodchucks seemed to shrug off the pellet) In all that time accuracy has been great. I keep waiting for seals to dry up or something, but it just keeps ticking. One of my favorite 'firearms' of any type.
What others should know:as others have said, this is a grown-up adult airgun, with significant cocking force, and it's heavy, even more so with scope. But when you shoot from a rest the weight becomes a positive. I just sighted in a new scope last weekend and zeroed it at 25 yards. At 50 yards it drops about 3"
