Things I liked:I received mine on Monday March 31, 2014. It's just like my original Crosman Challenger 2000. Except the barrel is a few inches longer (longer sight radius is good). It's easy to pump using the Benjamin hand pump. I never will worry again about running out of CO2 like I do with my original Crosman Challenger 2000. I do not worry about a scuba tank and refilling in nor lugging it around.
Things I would have changed:I wish it was easier to cock the charging handle back. But that's a nit pick, no worries it's acceptable to me.
What others should know:This is a very accurate air rifle and it's a good starting platform for you if you are serious about competition. Later on you can get a $1200-$3700 German Olympic Air Rifle. One thing, mine sends a puff of air into my nose after each shot. A little distracting at first. I ended up covering the spring adjuster with a piece of scotch tape and that put an end to that. I do recommend this air rifle.
Things I liked:Adjustable stock, weight and balance
Things I would have changed:A trouble shooting guide in the manual. Mine leaked air out of the barrel when I first tried to pump it up. Customer service (when they opened) quickly told me it's a simple problem to fix: Fill with high pressure air from a tank. Not having one, I slapped the buttstock and pumped some air with the gun cocked. Gun works fine now.
What others should know:I sighted the challenger in by locking it in a gun vise, firing 4 pellets and moving the sites to that spot. The problem I had was the pellets all went in the same hole, so I had to mark the 'grouping' with a sticker in order to see where I hit. Love it so far.
Things I liked:This is a great Sporter class rifle, you will hit the 10 ring, only if you can! This rifle will shoot an inch group at 50 yards in wind, and a 5shot group will look like you only took one shot. And this rifle only needs 2000 psi so it can be easily pumped with a hand pump, or it will extend the life of your tank because it does not use as much air. And this is a very quiet air rifle, not like the AAs200 which was killing my ear every time someone next to me shot it...challenger has a wonderful, crisp triger that is fully adjustable down to a half a pound.
Things I would have changed:A better rear sight.
What others should know:I went to competition with this rifle, in my first year of shooting. I shot a 479 and got 9th in the state. now I am shooting 490-511.
