Things I liked:The build quality is of course, excellent. I also like the fact that it's not a heavy rifle. The blueing is 5 stars! The record trigger is the best I've found.
Things I would have changed:I found the beech stock to be unattractive. No real grain detail. My biggest disappointment was the firing cycle. My .20 cal version exhibited a very pronounced recoil and very noticeable spring twang!I began to get annoyed just shooting it, so I boxed it up and sent it to get tuned by Paul Watts. It was sent back to me as a completely different rifle! Very smooth shot cycle,absolutely no spring twang. The trigger even better! Night and day difference. It's now one of my favorite rifles.
What others should know:I was expecting a better shot cycle from such an otherwise great gun. It seems to like the JSB exacts.(13.5gr.) The gun is hold sensitive so the artillery hold is necessary.
Things I liked:Repeatable accuracy. This thing is an absolute tack driver right out of the box. From the bench I can consistently shoot sub dime size groups at 25 yards all day long. The rifle is beautiful. Very solid mechanical feel. I love the muzzle brake. It helps with cocking and I believe it adds to the accuracy. I like that mine is not terribly hold sensitive. I can rest the forestock on a sand bag and shoot groups that just blow my mind and hold sensitive guns are not supposed to be shot that way. The trigger is simply AMAZING! Better than my Marauder by a long shot and that is saying something. I could go on and on but pretty much I like everything about this gun.
Things I would have changed:Not wild about the automatic safety. Would prefer to be able to put the gun on and off safe as I feel the need, but that is about all I can find to complain about. The gun can be de-cocked and safety can be re-engaged though so I can live with it.
What others should know:If you are pinching pennies I can understand you looking away from this gun. It is not cheap, but it will perform out of the box better than the clones and better than lesser guns even if you spend extra on tuning those other guns. If you want accuracy then save up and buy this gun. I would have saved money if I had bought this gun right from the start. Just some things to note, the first few cocking cycles were a tiny bit rough feeling, but that went away quickly. Many manufacturers will tell you that your break barrel won't be accurate until you have 1000 pellets through it. Actually Beeman says that as well but while it is true with others, this gun is dead accurate and I have less than a couple of hundred shots through it. It was accurate and grouped incredibly well as soon as I had the scope sighted in. Recoil is not terrible, but make sure you get a good scope that is rated for spring piston rifles. Bottom line is the thing other airgunners should know is that they should buy this gun!
Things I liked:Everything about this gun is top notch! First things I noticed was the great fit and finish. Out of the box it looked gorgeous. The bluing is perfect and the stock is pretty nice too. A few things to note. Posted velocities are not really representative of what most people will get from this gun unless you are shooting the lightest possible pellet. Mine is a .22 caliber wearing a Bushnell 4-12x40AO scope and I am shooting a Maccari tune kit and Beeman FTS Gold pellets at 680fps with one hole ten shot groups at 25 yards. Before the tune kit the gun shot with superb accuracy and slightly lower velocity. This rifle is truly an air gun enthusiasts dream. It's everything you wish you had as a kid toting a beat up old Daisy or Crosman pump gun.
Things I would have changed:Nothing. If yuo want better velocity, go for the .20 caliber gun but .22 takes care of any pest or vermin.
What others should know:The gun needs a few tins of pellets to break in. I ran a thousand or so cheap premier pellets through the gun before I spent a the money on finding a pellet that really shined.
