Things I liked: I think this is a really good little air rifle, especially at the price. Surprisingly, it also comes with an honestly decent mil-dot scope and not the usual 4x crossed wire reticle junk which one removes and replaces first thing out of the box. I have had the NPS for about two weeks. Today I did headshots on three starlings at 75 feet, so it is a indeed very accurate air rifle.

Things I would have changed: Nothing much. Perhaps a third level of comb adjustment.

What others should know: Mine needed a film of oil to take the grind out of the cocking. Problem solved without drama. It's not a very pretty air rifle. Certainly not the Belle of the Ball as far as finish is concerned. However, it is a heck of an accurate piece. It has plenty of velocity so heavy pellets are an option. Comes with a pretty good scope. For $170? It's a steal.

  • Luis from USA asked:

    How do I stop the grinding during the cocking cycle. my gun has less than 150 shots. I can only prevent this if I flip the gun over and pull the barrel towards me. thanks!

    • Chevota from USA:

      It's the cocking linkage, the tip or "shoe" at the end scrapes the tube. You can either let it wear a path which leaves a mess of metal shavings that cause problems, or reshape the shoe a bit. I have pix and a full explanation if you want; chevota at hotmail. It will probably also have a secondary scraping problem, both of which should be fixed before ever cocking the gun. There's also misc other problems that cause loss in power and accuracy, I have solutions and pix for all these. Just remind me of the model and problem when writing. This goes for anyone in need.

  • Luis from USA asked:

    Im new to break barrel guns. How do I know when this gun is broken in and how much quieter is it after the break in period is complete.

    • Erika from USA:

      Break in depends on the gun. Once you are noticing the gun stopped dieseling and the accuracy and speed seem consistent then the gun is broken in
