Things I liked:I have the Cometa Fusion in .22. The wood is lovely, the bluing is of medium depth, and the fit and finish is excellent. I find the accuracy of the rifle to be first-rate. Right up there with my Dianas out to about 30 yards. For pest control and small game, it has become my go-to rifle and is very reliable. I use Predator PolyMags from here at Pyramid Air for ammo in it. So, while this gun is pretty, it is not something to hang on the wall.
Things I would have changed:Trigger pull is very acceptable but it would be nice if it could be made a little lighter.
What others should know:I am writing this review because there is only one other review of this rifle here and I do not think that review is accurate. I have several break barrel and side lever air rifles: 3 Diana's, a Stoeger, and a Hatsan. I have no idea what it would be like to try and get this rifle services if anything ever went wrong with it. Fortunately, it is extremely well made and mine has been completely reliable.
Things I liked:Nice design, comfortable stock, very easy to cock, light weight.
Things I would have changed:The quality controls. The rifle is pretty, but nothing else. Accuracy is abysmal. The trigger is unpredictable and feels like sandpaper. A pretty object to be displayed on a wall, not to be taken to the field.
What others should know:If you are thinking about getting this rifle, read this review carefully. There are huge quality control issues with this product - what I will describe of course pertains to the gun I looked at, tried, and inspected very carefully before returning it to PA. a) The bore was horrifically undersized (0.177) - to the point that Premiers did not fit into the breech. As a QC issue, this is totally unacceptable. b) When cocking the gun it was obvious that the contact area between the barrel and the action was uneven - again, a completely unacceptable degree of quality control sloppiness. c) The gun was grossly inaccurate, printing groups of over two inches at 12 yards, even when great attention to hold and follow through was paid. d) The gun has a perforated aluminum muzzle piece which looks very nice, but which fulfills absolutely no useful purpose. The company that makes the gun claims such a component helps dissipate the turbulence that forms as the air exits the barrel and that the pellet must go through as it leaves on its trajectory. Such claim is unfounded and has no merit, especially in a rifle so utterly inaccurate as this one. Close examination of the gun gives the firm impression of a dressed-up $90 Chinese rifle, only much less accurate and with far worse quality control issues. To be fair, there are some elements of design in this gun that reveal some attempt at quality, but without proper QC that means very little.
