Things I liked:It's lightweight and pretty quiet. On top of that, it's a pretty accurate gun. I shot quarters at 15 yards, and it's great for plinking cans in the backyard. My 9-year old niece can handle it very well, so it's a great buy for beginners.
Things I would have changed:The scope it comes with isn't the greatest, but it's a start. The pump can be a pain for some when you first get the gun, but it gradually gets easier.
What others should know:I own a Remington Vantage 1200, a Big Cat 1200, a Gamo Bone Collector, and several others, and the Recruit is by far the best value for the money.
Things I liked:this is a great gun. its easy to sight in and i have hit my target every time. this is a great gun if you are looking at it BUY IT!!!
Things I would have changed:the bbs are kind of hard to get into the loading chamber.
What others should know:defiantly get the gun with a scope.
Things I liked:Lightweight, inexpensive, very quiet. Perfect for indoor target practice with variable power and nobody can hear it. It's amazing how many shooters can enjoy it with the collapsible stock. Reliable: I have put 2500+ shots through this thing without a problem. The weight and absence of recoil and noise mean that my 9-year old sister can shoot this for hours without fatigue. It's like clicking a mouse.
Things I would have changed:Filling in the stock really would make the Recruit more solid. Also, safety is not ambidextrous. Finally, the rear sight scratches the bottom of the scope. Scope can be a pain at first; windage and elevation adjust is vague. Spend a few minutes and you will be rewarded with unreasonably tight groups. But then again, this thing cost less than a pair of jeans.
What others should know:There are certainly more accurate and powerful rifles out there, but few are as easy to live with and ask for so little ($50?!). I own a range of rifles and consider the Recruit a favorite. If you want to introduce someone (or yourself) to airguns, or want to sharpen your shooting inside while the weather sucks, this is could be the best $50 you will ever spend.
