Things I liked:My first impression of the rifle was bad because a couple of minor problems I had with it. But once I setteled down and resolved them, I found this rifle to be extremely accurate for the price and very fun to shoot. Trigger action is very consistant and predictable for a double action type system.
Things I would have changed:This is a solid, well designed rifle, but the week link has to be the plastic dove-tail mounting rail. However, you can mount a single base rings for a rock solid grip and alighnment of the scope. Also, a click adjust type rear sight would be a huge improvement.
What others should know:One of those first minor problems I had was my own fault, I used the cheap Daisy pellets. Grouping at 15 yds. was about 3 ins. from 12 shots (one full clip). I noticed that they fit into the clip losely and some would fall out if was tipped too far back. I switched to the Crosman Competition (the carton of 1250) and Viola! my group shrank to the size of a quarter with 12 shots at the same distance with not a single flyer. I am simply amazed at the consistancy of this rifle for it's price range. Make sure you get the pellet clip pin all the way in, it snaps in at the end. If you don't, the clip will woble when cycled and you will lose accuracy. Also, check to make sure the Air Source adapter is screwed all the way in after shooting the rifle for a while, it's a tight fit at first (a good thing) and mine wasn't threaded all the way when I checked it. The barrel is a 3 layered design, the inner barrel is high quality steel that slides forward via an unlocking mechanism to help remove a jammed pellet ( I haven't had any jamming problems myself ). The middle portion is ABS type plastic and the outter part that we see is blued steel. This might sound cheap but it was designed that way for the pellet removal function and it's well done , I prefer it over a skinny tube barrel, I was able to mount a UTG Dragon Claw bi-pod to the larger dia. barrel and it looks and feals great (see my customers pic). Make sure to order Pellgun oil (necessary) and extra clips when you get the rifle.
Things I liked:It is very light and easy using in a short carbine. Accuracy is great and it hits everything I shoot at. Good out to 35 yards. It will punch holes through both sides of a soup can at 20 yards and is hard to miss. It is such a pleasure to shoot all day long. Nice fiber optic front sight.
Things I would have changed:Add rear fiber optic sight.
What others should know:As most people have expressed, get a lot of co2 and pellets.
