Things I liked:This feels like a real real air rifle and at a great price! A must for anyone's collection. Very accurate.. Things I would have changed:The scope feels a bit cheap. What others should know:Extremely accurate, very smooth break-barrel action. Enjoy!
I accidently purchased the spring version as opposed to the Nitro Piston version. Other than loudness, are they're any differences? Should I return the spring version for the NP?
Chevota from USA:
The advantages of nitro springs are exaggerated, but imo the biggest negative to a coil is the noise. Some spring tar will take care of that... Get the black tar, not the clear.
Dan from USA:
Nitro pistons can be used in the cold and be cocked for a few hours. Spingers have to be used in warmer weather and you have 10 minutes to fire the rifle after it's cocked before you start causing damage.
Ray from USA asked:
I have one of these guns and the open sights are driving me nuts ! I can't get the elevation where it belongs without the dial popping off ! You need to turn it so far to the left that it ends up popping off when you fire the gun . Does anyone have a fix for this problem ? Or just deal with it shooting low ?
Ray from USA:
Chevota , you were rite , shortly after posting this issue with my rifle , the main spring failed drastically ! It was broken in three pieces , I have a feeling it was broken in two for a while causing the rifle to shoot to low .
Chevota from USA:
It shouldn't be like that, but you could trim some height off the front sight to compensate for elevation. For windage you can rotate the front sight slightly and re-glue it. I would first look to see if there's a problem with power or the barrel itself.
