Things I liked:I received it from PA and cleaned the barrel,installed the scope & sling and was shooting 1" groups @ 20 yards--all within 48 hours from ordering it! Thank you PA! From reading reviews I expected the barrel to be filthy and for it to sound like a cannon when firing initially. Didn't happen. The barrel was hardly dirty at all & didn't have a lot of excess oil to clean out. It also was seemed pretty quiet to me. Not any louder than my Benji Limited Edition (NPS action & also .22).I also was concerned about being able to cock it and its weight. My 1st impression was heh, this ain't so bad. Keep in mind I'm an old fart that'll turn 70 very soon. I thought, must be a lotta girlie men out there in the air gun world. Well, after running the first 50 or so pellets through....DANG, this sucker IS kind of a b**ch to cock, LOL. That night my shoulder throbbed like I'd been wrasslin' a grizzly but this section is supposed to be what I liked. OK, it's dead nuts accurate out to just short of 50 yds.
Things I would have changed:Ladies & Gentlemen, this IS a very heavy rifle. It's been a very long time but I'm sure it's heavier than the M-14 with full auto selector & 2 magazines taped together I carried in Nam. It does take some strength to cock but it is doable. I do wish it could be lighter but I knew all this going in and I'm still very happy with it. Everyone knows about the crappy trigger & that was resolved with a GRTIII.
What others should know:Just know that it is a tough cocker and it ain't a light weight. No way I could fire it accurately offhand. What works great for me is firing it off my deck resting the barrel on my hand which is supported by a couple of towels folded up. If I'm gonna shoot for a while I cock it by putting the butt on the deck floor and grabbing the barrel with BOTH hands.Sounds silly but I can plink for a long time using this old man method. I've got about 500 rounds through it so far and the scope hasn't blown up yet. Happy with that as well...so far. Hope this helps out someone considering an XL1100. Just know its HEAVY and eat your Wheaties.
Things I liked:tack driver after 150 rounds into the pond last night this morning i mounter scope and bore sighted it went to my 26 yard range and fired 5 gomo AP 6.8 gr rounds at 1/2 in bull expecting then to be all over a 12 buy 12 box side to my surprise 3/8 in hole in bull 1180 fps 21.03 ft # next tried gamo red furry in same hole only a little larger 1048 fps next jsb 7.87 1079 fps opened hole to 3/4 in have not tried heavy pellets yet ??? big surprise with this gun shots stronger then my rws 48 buy 150 fps and just as accurate.What a Chinese made gun .They are getting there shi@@ together over there to bad they didn't sell them here and buy pass crosman !!!! as all i can find out is that crosman passes them on ..
Things I would have changed:trigger still need's the washer job but then you have a very good trigger !!!!!
What others should know:takes a lot to cock it i am 68 and 150 rounds at one sitting is a lot for me with this gun will be 69 in august .. I wire brushed this when i got it with hoppe's #9 bore cleaner then patched till clean (8 patches ) shot it 100 times re cleaned and re tightened mounting screws and re lock tightened them also dropped 2 drops cylinder oil in chamber fired 50 more times repeated cleaning and lock tight and cyl oil and fired two rounds to distribute chamber oil and put up for night . next morning tack driver !!!! hope this helps in the brake in of this gun for others oh yes 50 yards 1 in low and 1 in 5 shot grope with gamo AP ? go figure none of my outer guns even like them at all Speed Kills
Things I liked:I have owned the 25 caliber for over a year now and have shot over 1000 pellets. The rifle has maintained its overall quality and has improved its shooting ability. The nitro piston has settled in now and I get 736fps (chronograph) using H&N Field Target Trophy consistently. My standard deviation is only 11 fps. I have taken this rifle out to 75 yards in 10 mph winds and can still get consistent 1 1/2 inch groups. It still has enough terminal velocity to take most small game at that distance.
Things I would have changed:I would change the trigger to be more sensitive. I had to personally rework the trigger to get it to 2 1/2 lbs (it had an 8 lb pull when I first got it). It now lets me know precisely when the first stage is set and the second breaks crisp.
What others should know:At 75 yards the glass on the scope that comes with it starts to become blurry. I upgraded to better scope. Also I have found this gun is very sensitive to pellets and hold. My two favorite pellets that work for me are the H&N FTT which I use for target and normal small game hunting and the Predator Polymag which I use for heavier small to medium game depending on the distance. Through ballistic experimentation and distance shooting to be very comparable in my particular rifle.
