*The weight of this gun varies by as much as 12 oz. So, your gun might be heavier or lighter than the weight we show in our specifications (which is the weight of the gun only...without the scope and mount).
If you shoot a lightweight pellet so its velocity exceeds the speed of sound, it could result in your pellet breaking the sound barrier and the gun being louder than expected! The speed of sound depends on humidity, temperature and altitude. Generally speaking, it's between 1,060 fps and 1,115 fps.

Things I liked:I like the look of it and how it feel the wood stock is nice Things I would have changed:The Trigger since is very simple fixit What others should know:I will like to see some special edition offer for the same unit
with some upgrade or feutures
Things I liked:easy cocking. welded on weaver base, looks of the gun, Things I would have changed:better trigger , internal cleanup and deburring What others should know:as good as can be expected accuracy from a gun in this price range, will do a good job of backyard pesting , Its not a $2000 target gun , but does fine out to 30 yards
Things I liked:This is a great rifle! Very accurate! Within 20 shots I had it shooting quarter size groups at 22 yards. I did change the scope to a hawk mil for 4x40. The wood stock and sling are great. I have a Ruger Black Hawk, Gamo Bone Collector, and Hatsan Striker 1000s. This is my favorite rifle. Things I would have changed:The trigger and scope. What others should know:Once you change trigger this thing is a tack driver. Shoots RWS hollow points best, but pretty accurate with Crosman 14.3 gr. hollow points. Mine shoots 14.2 RWS hollow points @ 734 fps - 17 fpe. The trigger isn't that terrible, you can get used to it.
Iam having trouble getting this grouped at 15 yrds. All over the paper with each shot. Iam shooting premier super point .177 hunting pellets. Whts recommended for this air rifle. Cause these arnt working.
Chevota from USA:
The hunting/pointed pellets aren't as good as the round nose, but I don't think that's your main problem. Typically you need to shim the scope so its angle matches the barrel. Check to be sure the parallax matches the setting. If you can check to be sure the power is good because main/breech seal leaks cause problems and power loss will show leaks. Probably all leak, but the worse they leak the bigger the problem. That pellet will break 1000fps if there are no leaks and everything is working right. I'd switch to quality pellets of ~8.4gr to 10.5gr which shoot better on avg than lighter and/or cheaper ones. The barrel may be loose, check by moving it around. The barrel may have defects so check the bore, especially at and just below the crown. They're all defective imo, the question is how bad. So look at the crown/rifling with 10+ magnification, and push a pellet thru by hand with a dowel to feel how bad it is. Often a few mm of the tip needs to be cut off, some sanding of the bore helps, sometimes only a new barrel will fix it. The trigger is terrible as you know, but very fixable for next to free, or the $30+ gold trigger. Pita I know, but if you want good to go out of the box you're looking at $400+, meaning Weihrauch or similar quality. These Trails can be really cool and fun, but usually you have to do some work to them. chevota at hotmail if you want some details on these fixes
Kyle from USA asked:
Should I get this or the Stoeger atac air rifle in overall value
Chevota from USA:
I'd get this Trail. The two guns look different, but they are very much the same inside. The Trail is cheaper, more versatile, more powerful, easier to work on/tune, and better looking imo.
