Things I liked:This rifle is great. I adjusted the power settings to 2.5CW on the spring and 4CW on the striker, which gives me 812fps (avg. for 24 shots) with JSB Exact (25.39gr.) pellets. At 22 yards using the garage door frame as a standing brace I got 8 shot groups of 3/8"(c-c), 24 shot groups of 1/2", and 32 shot groups of 5/8" per fill with both JSB Exact and H&N Baracuda (31gr.). This was after less than 50 break-in shots. The 24 shot string was with a fill pressure of 2750psi and ended at 1900psi (799fps-814fps-798fps). The 32 shot string was with a fill pressure of 3000psi and the first three shots were the worst. Using a fill pressure of 2850psi gives a couple more shots but drops the velocity to 794fps. Below 1900psi the velocity starts to drop about 8-10fps per shot. The factory setting gives higher velocity (about 850fps), but only about 8-10 fairly consistent shots. My best 8 shot group at the factory setting was 5/8"(c-c).
Things I would have changed:The manual is not very detailed about just how to adjust the power settings, but there are several reviews on YouTube showing this in detail. I feel that this should be detailed more completely in the manual, as this ability to easily fine tune the gun is the feature that impressed me the most.
What others should know:I use the Benjamin hand pump which takes about 65 strokes to go from 1900psi back to 2750psi. I weigh about 180 and it takes my full weight on the last 15-20 strokes. The trick is to throw your leg to the side as you push so that you get a continuous stroke to the bottom and then hold it for a count of 2 then bring your foot back on to the pump base and raise the handle to the top and hold again. The pump is compressing air on both the up and down strokes and needs the pause to allow the compressed air to fully clear the valves. This is a good work-out but is cheap.
Things I liked:Awesome PCP air rifle. Right out of the box, once sighted in, dime size hole at 42 yards.
Things I would have changed:Include a single shot tray with the rifle.
Things I liked:Have only 20 rounds in it, but I am really happy with the purchase. No recoil, and light. I used it with the factory settings and it performed flowless. I will put a different scope for better target site.
Things I would have changed:Would it be possible to smooth the bolt action?
What others should know:Buy it. It is a great gun at a very moderate cost.
