Things I liked:Compatible with my Rock River Arms LAR-15 NM A4. One thing I have do do differently from the real upper is that the trigger mechanism's hammer has to be pushed down and locked in place when mounting or dismounting this MAR177. Unlike many air guns, there is no need for a separate dry firing mechanism. Documentation states that one way to remove air from the tank is by firing repeatedly, without loading any pellets. It's very accurate. With a competent shooter, and if not constrained by the 4.5 lb. service rifle trigger pull minimum, this could be competitive even in a match air rifle competition (may not win, but at least be competitive). The capabilities allow me to practice far more often than if I had to plan a trip to the range.
Things I would have changed:The price should've been lower, although I understand the reasons behind the pricing: the limited market on one hand, and the limited buyer choices on the other. It's not a "cheap" item and I've had shooters look at it up close and remark on its quality. It has already saved me several expensive trips to the range.
What others should know:I bought a Hill Pump and it took only 145 pumps to fill the tank from empty to full. I also had to get an adapter for the pump. Subsequent topping off only takes about 50 pumps from the Hill pump. I briefly tried non-toxic, high quality (supposedly) pellets for indoor use but the results were abysmal. I switched to RWS Meisterkugeln 8.2 grains and got vastly improved groupings, but I now practice outdoors.
Things I liked:Incredible accuracy out of the box.
Things I would have changed:The rear sight is very poor for a target rifle. It is unstable and not repeatable. The zero changes when going from center hold to 6 o'clock and back. I would suggest a better quality rear sight base with announced minute of angle description and repeatability, as well as a defined aperture size. For 10 meters, the flip sight is redundant. One size aperture would suffice, and a hooded one with changeable apertures would make this an awesome platform. The price is steep, but for indoor, foul weather practice for high power rifle shooting, it is arguably the best platform going. Wish Crosman would put an air gun lower on it.
Things I liked:I use this for National Match Service Rifle training and practice and it is a really good product for that. It has the correct weight and fits my match lower, with the match trigger, perfectly. The air consumption is also phenomenal. I really enjoy being able to shoot and practice in my home, and although it seems espensive it allows you to compete relatively inexpensively!
Things I would have changed:The carry handle and sights are really cheap Chinese knock offs. I changed them to National Match sights abd a real carry handle, which was quite a chore.
What others should know:A lot of people don't understand this product and question the cost and it's usefulness. Not only is it good practice for actual Service Rifle matches, there is a National Match for Service Rifle ariguns now simply because of this product and the men who conceived of it and designed and put it into production. If you have never shot National Match competion here is your chance!
