Things I liked:Everything about this gun! It feels right to me when shouldered. It is very very accurate with a scope, and even with the iron sights I can often shoot one hole 5 shot groups at 25' in my basement offhand.
Things I would have changed:Not much. Maybe the trigger. After around 1000 rounds it is light enough on the pull, but does have a lot of creep. Still, this is a very usable trigger for me, and I have not done a thing to it! It gets very boring very quick hitting target after target after target. To make things more challenging in interactive targets I only aim at the feet, ears, tail or any other very small (1/4") appendage on the target. Aiming at center of mass is way too easy!
What others should know:Just buy it. You will like and use it probably more than any other gun if you have an indoor place to shoot. It only needs pellets, and shoots very well with cheap pellets. There is no recoil, the noise is low, and it is accurate. Not a lot of power, but for paper punching and interactive targets, it is very inexpensive to buy and use! Highly recommended!
Things I liked:The 953 is very accurate. Shooting at 18 yards inside, with 20x scope and sandbags, 29 of 30 shots can be covered with a quarter which is 0.75" c-c using RWS R10 7.0 gr pellets. This is the most impressive group out of about 15 groups with different types of pellets.
Things I would have changed:Nothing
What others should know:The 5 shot clip works good, order extras. The 953 takes a strong arm to cock but I can can cock it OK at 70 years old. I cleaned the barrel and that improved the accuracy. The stock is nice.
Things I liked:Highly accurate, I zeroed mine at 10 meters with RWS Diabolo Basic 7.0 gr wadcutters and ended up with a .250" group. I am also able to shoot .75-1" groups, standing unsupported at 10 meters. The pistol grip angle and thickness really help with trigger control. I like the single stroke, it beats multi pumping in between shots, at least at 10 meters anyway. I also like how the clip advances while cocking. Very good weight and balance also.
Things I would have changed:For the price, I think this rifle is very well engineered.
What others should know:The trigger pull is a little on the heavy side (compared to springers & multi pumps) at about 6 lbs., but it is very smooth and without alot of takeup, which I personaly like.
