Things I liked: The rifle. The scope. Accuracy on the 392 was beautiful out of the box. Scope is a keeper as well, eye relief is great.
Things I would have changed: THE INTERMOUNT, complete garbage. Slides on the barrel. Sent back the scope, rings, and intermount for a Williams Peep Sight, as I want something RELIABLE without modifications.
What others should know: Go with just the 392, pick up an Integrabase and scope separately, or a peep sight. The intermount will let you down unless you like fiddling with things to make them work.
Things I liked: This is an accurate and easy to use air rifle. The bolt action top loading system is very user friendly and adds to the enjoyment in the field. With the scope mounted in the forward position, the gun is simple and easy to pump. I am an active person; so I don’t mind pumping this rifle. The ability to alter your velocity really is a benefit. It’s amazing how much velocity you can get with even 6 pumps; my rifle choreographed in the 590’s with RWS 11.9 pellets. The same pellet yielded 640 to 650 FPS with 8 pumps. The size and weight of this model is really nice for carrying in the field. I have 3 break barrel rifles and all are more cumbersome and heavy to hold and use in when hunting or plinking.
Things I would have changed: It is easy to locate your target with the scope. One problem as I see it is the magnification (2x) is less than ideal. When shooting paper targets I struggle to pick up the center at distances of 20 yards or greater. This doesn’t seem to be a problem when hunting or plinking. It’s really more of an issue when targeting.
What others should know: The last three guns I have purchased have been Tom Gaylord favorites. I have ordered the 10 for 10 on all and I have not once been disappointed. There is a reason this model has been offered for decades. It offers great accuracy and ease of use that will prove enjoyable to many.
Things I liked: Classic well made pellet rifle. Add the scope, and it becomes a squirrels worst nightmare.
Things I would have changed: This was more of a trip back down memory lane for me. I prefer the same or more power from a single stroke, modern pellet gun. But I still believe the fixed barrel design will be more accurate in general, day to day use.
What others should know: If you like a value in a time proven design with the benefit of modern optics, this is hard to beat. If you would rather shoot than pump....there are other choices.
