Things I liked:Mine is more accurate than I can shoot it and was that way straight out of the box. Usually about 1-2" groups at 30 yards from a knee using the included scope. No problem hitting an empty CO2 cartridge at that range. Rifle is not overly particular about the type of pellet (can even shoot the cheap Daisy pellets). Mine has pretty good trigger. Probably have a couple thousand rounds through the rifle and the scope is hanging in there.
Things I would have changed:For the price do not have to change anything. The rifle is a little light in the butt for my taste. It would probably not be hard to add weight, but the butt of the stock is also short and very narrow, which makes is harder to hold and makes it look toyish. The clasping mechanism that locks the barrel after it is cocked on mine will not hold the barrel securely and it wobbles quite a bit. Surprisingly it still shoots straight. Would be nice if the parallax setting of the scope could be adjusted out beyond 10 yards or so.
What others should know:I have a Crosman Nitro Venom in .22 and Benjamin Regal in .177 which have similar power plants. These rifles both have awesome stocks, much better balance, and are both much more attractive than the Vantage. Both of those rifles cost twice as much as the Vantage, but in power and accuracy, all three perform more or less equally with good pellets. My Vantage has a trigger that is lighter and breaks cleaner than that of the other two rifles, but I believe the triggers are all the same, and this one just came out better. My Vantage shoots poor quality pellets better than my Regal, probably due to the trigger, but the barrel design is slightly different. I use a one piece scope mount instead of the mounts that came with the rifle, which may be overkill. The included ones are not top of the line but appear to be medium duty and may be adequate. For $89 you get a lot of rifle with this package.
Things I liked:While I don't remember if I purchased this rifle from PA, I did want to comment to the high level of performance it delivers. Solid feel & weight, very accurate, easy cocking, hard hitting, decent trigger, Nitro Piston is a huge plus. A very straight shooter at an excellent price from PA.
Things I would have changed:Nothing. . .but just for kicks, I did upgrade to a 3-12x50 scope, dovetail to weaver rail, and taller rings to rise above the fixed front sight. Wasn't necessary but does allow for longer distance shots maintaining tight groups.
What others should know:Try different pellets. What works for one rifle may not for another. That includes the identical rifle. . . This rifle get a high recommendation . . .price/value story is hard to beat.
Things I liked:Second one I bought works so far...Accurate and has a straight trajectory up to 50 or so yards
Things I would have changed:The first one worked up until the point where a friend of mine dry fired it. After about 200 shots after the dry fire, the airgun stopped working entirely. However, I did purchase a second rifle while it was on sale and it works seamlessly so far
What others should know:Don't EVER dry fire a springer/gas ram. Not good for the gun. Also, replace the scope if you can or use the iron sights.
