Things I liked:Accuracy is GREAT!!!! I put a scope on it because there was no rear sight in the box, & wow it just kept putting pellet after pellet in same ragged hole. stock extensions, one pump power-up
Things I would have changed:stock extensions could follow the outline of the stock better. A fit & finish issue.
What others should know:The rear sight was missing from the box. I called immediately. I called again 10 days later, they said give it another week. It is now 22 days later & still no sight. I left a phone message 2 days ago with no response. Where oh where can my little sight be:) If not for the sight problem this might have been a 5 overall rating.
Things I liked:Sweet little tack driver. Can shoot clover leafs all day long with this one. Target sights are very precise (but very dim). Fit and finish is pretty good for the price. A lot of plastic, but it seems like decent plastic. Trigger is manageable with even just some lube.
Things I would have changed:Maybe include some stock spacers for 'adult size' use. Maybe create a model between the 953 and it's higher priced siblings that includes a little nicer stock and a little better trigger.
What others should know:Accuracy is really top notch with the Target Sights, but is really too dim for indoor range use (for my taste anyway). I ended up drilling out the diopter to 1/8" which did help quite a bit without hurting the precision. However I did end up adding a 6x BugBuster (which looks perfect on this little rifle) to wring the last little bit of accuracy out of the gun. I 'may' return to the Target Sights at some point if I ever set up an outdoor range, something just 'feels right' about shooting this little target rifle as intended, with precision open sights.
Things I liked:I have only shot around 50 pellets so far, I am pleased with it's operation. I like the single stroke cocking and the clip feeding and especially the Made in the USA. I believe for my purposes of informal target shooting, it will serve me.
