Things I liked:Most everything.
Things I would have changed:Storage in pistol grip as well as in the butt and iron sights
What others should know:When mine arrived I shot it several times and it was fairly powerful. The issue I had was that the 'suppressor' on the end of the barrel was not inline with the barrel itself. If there were iron sights on it I doubt it could have been possible to use them. I noticed it when mounting the scope. I couldn't deal with that because of potential (if not actual) clipping the pellet as it left the Barrel. I returned it and PA was more that satisfactory in trading it for the Hatsan 95, which is a great gun. BOTTOM LINE: If I could have viewed a second TR-77 rifle before I traded it I would have but I didn't want to take a second chance with one on mail order. Except for the manufacturing flaw I described, it was good!
Things I liked:The style. Unique, and, user friendly. The power. Plenty for taking care of small varmints. The rifle shoulders easily. No after shouldering shifting around to get the rifle into a proper shooting stance. Using a proper artillery hold, this rifle is really accurate. You can easily stack pellets at ten yards. My rifle shoots medium, and, heavier pellets well. However, it does not seem to like lighter pellets around, and, under, the 7 grain mark. This could be this particular rifle, so, your rifle may be different. Don't be afraid to try the lighter grain pellets. you never know until you try.
Things I would have changed:Break in time was a little long. Several hundred pellets worth of break in before the rifle consistently shot accurately. This was after thoroughly cleaning the barrel out of the box. A clean barrel out of box would have been helpful. Also, the trigger is HORRIBLE, out of the box. There are several options out there to fix this. Find one that suits you. The supplied scope is inadequate, and, only serves to get you shooting until you can replace it. This rifle deserves a better supplied scope. Just buy one when you buy this rifle, and, save yourself the headache of trying to use this scope. This site sells a number of suitable scopes. Get one with an adjustable objective lens, and, your gonna love what this rifle can do.
What others should know:My sample is hold sensitive. In order to get it to shoot accurately, I have to use the artillery hold at the rifle's balance point, which is just in front of the trigger guard. Utilizing any other hold causes the pellet's impact point to wander. After break in, the rifle has proven itself to be an excellent hunter. It's lightweight, powerful, and VERY accurate. Using middle weight, and, heavier pellets seems to be this rifle's sweet spot. So, aside from the caveats I've mentioned above, I would recommend this rifle to friends. The trigger, and, scope issues are easily remedied, so, don't let it hinder you from trying this little jewel in the rough. It's positive attributes far outweigh it's relatively minor issues.
Things I liked:I got the TR77NPS and not the TR77NP that PA advertises on their site and yes I do like that. Very accurate powerful varmint killer in a sleek cool package and it's easy to shoot. I'm still feeling out the field on pellets and my best groupings have come down to an inch. I know there is more to be had with this rifle but the trigger(can be replaced) and the packaged scope(can be replaced) hold it back severely. The reticle on my packaged scope broke after about 1800 pellets. Waiting to get a UTG 3-9x32 which should be sufficient for my needs. The packaged scope mounts suck plain and simple and should be replaced.
Things I would have changed:The trigger is pain in the butt but the scope is a kick in the teeth. Please package a scope that the reticle doesn't break in. You build a powerful rifle and supply it with a scope that cannot handle the punishment. Thanks, but no thanks, just sell it without the crap scope.
What others should know:The trigger will hold your groupings back. The scope is cheap and very well may break like mine did. It's a great rifle packaged with a few faults. Drop the crap scope, crap scope mounts and throw in a better trigger and this rifle would be a beast at the same price. I'd still recommend the TR77NPS though it's a great performer.
