Things I liked:The Browning Leverage is a real tack driver for $200. Good precision and accuracy. I shot 1/2-3/4 inch ctc groups at 25 and 30 yards with Air Arms 8.4 gr dome pellets on a relatively calm day. A good scope comes with the gun. This spring-piston gun is not real hold-sensitive, which is a real plus for me, since I am new to shooting spring piston guns. Once I shot 70 rounds, cocking the gun became quite smooth and muzzle report became quiet. Cocking effort is a reasonable 28 pounds: I can cock and shoot this gun all day long and not get tired (and I am a retired old guy!). I bought this gun because I'm too cheap to buy an Air Arms TX200 or a PCP air gun. This gun shoots almost as well as my friends PCP air gun, and the Leverage is still breaking in!
Things I would have changed:This gun is heavy (10 pounds with the scope), but this is probably one reason why the gun is not hold-sensitive. Cocking was real crunchy’ and the gun’s report is loud for the first 70 shots. Bad dieseling for the first 10 shots, with some dieseling after 200 shots. The trigger is still rather heavy for the first 500 shots, and seems to be lightening up a bit the more I shoot the gun. There is fair amount of trigger creep, but the trigger lets off predictably. Spring and lever hinges did not appear to be lubricated out of the box. Open sights partially block the scope field of view (although this did not appreciably degrade the image). One of the screws that holds the action on the stock was over-tight, and took some work to remove.
What others should know:This gun is a real bargain for 200 dollars, and once broken in, it is a real pleasure to shoot. However, the buyer should take the stock off and lightly lube the gun spring, lever hinges and the trigger. Also clean the bore prior to using the gun for the first time, and after the first 70 shots with some Goo Gone on the patch, followed by a few dry patches. Loading the breach can be a little intimidating at first, but after the first 20 or so shot, it will become second-nature. I use the 'artillery hold' for the most accurate shots with the 8.4 gr pellets, but a light hold at the balance point of the fore arm of the stock does improve the accuracy when 10.3 gr pellets are used. The best pellets I have found were Air Arms 8.4 gr domed pellets, followed by JSB 8.44 gr pellets. Forget about light pellet (less than 8 gr): The grouping are 2 at 25 yards. I also suggest putting some mild car wax, such as Turtle Wax, on the stock: This really improves the appearance of the gun.
Things I liked:Accuracy out of the box in the first 40 shots was outstanding. 10 meters left me with a 50 cent piece size shredded hole. Gun is hefty but comfortable to shoot. Early impressions are very good for the price point.
Things I would have changed:For some reason, the scope came with the left right adjustment nearly bottomed out to the right. I could see the side of the inner body of the scope. Not sure why the factory would do that, nor do I know why it would be shipped that way. I saw the issue when I looked through the scope before I mounted it. Again, why would it be shipped that way to me. It is fine now that it is mounted and adjusted and is holding zero well. But still......?
What others should know:The trigger has a lot of creep but lets off very nicely. I have not tried any adjustments yet. I have focused on break in and accuracy for the most part. I will do the trigger during my next session on the bench and report back at that time.
Things I liked:The feel and ease of cocking are good but this is my first underlever so I have nothing to compare to. For the cost I feel I did get my moneys worth. Pyramyd Air has a good web sight and was easy to order.
Things I would have changed:It would be nice for an extra fee they would offer an adjustable trigger.
