Things I liked: Accurate, beautiful design and a free floating barrel.
Things I would have changed: I would have sling rail measurements like the Daisy 887 and 888 have underneath.
What others should know: The rifle is very light weight. I'm used to the Daisy 887 to shoot 10 meter three position so I like heavy steady weight. This rifle is more accurate than the 887 and is a quick sight job. It may be hard to get a hang of all the adjustable parts and the low weight, but it is a great rifle. Similar to the Air Force Edge PCP CMP certified 10 meter rifle.
Things I liked: Very adjustable and comfortable stock, adequate sights for sporter class 10 meter rifle, pretty darn good 2 stage trigger ( and it's metal, not plastic ), dead on accuracy for the money, no automatic safety, and quick and easy CO2 cartridge change out. ( Don't forget a drop of pellgun oil on the tip of every new CO2 cartridge ).
Things I would have changed: Addition of different size ( smaller ) front sight inserts.
What others should know: I have fired only 800 rounds through this rifle since receiving it due to the weather here in Central Texas. So far it's done me proud with no failures or troubles of any kind. I have heard the valves are a weak spot for this rifle. I have to wonder though, If some folks are really cranking down on the cartridge seating rod and deforming the valve seating surface ??? It doesn't take much pressure to seat the CO2 cartridge. I noticed everything beginning to really smooth out at the 400 round mark. Just seems to be getting better and better the more I shoot it. The rifle is getting 85 consistently accurate shots per CO2 cartridge at 75 degrees and 63 accurate shots at 65 degrees. The most accurate pellets out of my Challenger are RWS R-10 Match 7.00 Gr. and Beeman H&N Match. Both pellets with this rifle are capable of very tiny one hole groups at 10 Meters on a still day with you doing your part. I believe this rifle to be of very good quality for a fair price from an American company who stands behind their products. Thanks Crosman and Pyramyd Air !
Things I liked: Nice sights and feels good when holding. The adjustable stock is a nice feature.
Things I would have changed: Bolt (Charging Handle) is very rough to pull back and push forward.
What others should know: First one I received, the barrel was loose and moved up and down. I insured the fore stock screw was tight. I had to return it to Crosman who very quickly replaced it. They informed me that it was test fired out of the stock and in a vice.
