Things I liked:I like the way the rifle feels. It's heavy, but not to heavy. It recoils very little because of the weight. It is accurate!!!
Things I would have changed:The trigger is a little to light for my liking.
What others should know:It took A few shots to get used to the trigger, but I would not change it for some others I have used. This is part of the reason the rifle is so accurate.
Things I liked:This rifle has been incredible! I was very impressed from the first time I took it out of the box. It is hefty and it SCREAMS German quality! Very solid rifle. Accuracy has been outstanding too. The wood grain is very classy and professional. I was all set up to purchase the synthetic stock version but I'm so glad I splurged and chose the wood stock at the last minute. The scope works great for me. Some people mentioned upgrading it. I don't see a need for that any time soon but always an option later if I change my mind. No issues so far with loosening of scope or shroud due to following others' advice about using locktite. The hardest thing was making myself wait for it to dry before shooting it! I got the 10 for $10 as recommended by others and glad I did. Everything is well lubed and action closes crisp and tight.
Things I would have changed:Maybe streamline the scope base ? The scope base that comes with the rifle is a little primative looking but appears very sturdy / functional. Other than that maybe add a set of carry strap studs on the ventral portion of the stock.
What others should know:Make sure you pay attention to the weight listed. With the solid stock, scope and shroud on, the weight is more like holding up a Garand. Here's a comparison. Put a broomstick through the handle on a 1 gallon jug of water and hold the broom up like a rifle. That's a fairly close estimate. This was a bit of a surprise at first but also adds to the feeling of quality to me. If this is an issue for you maybe look at one with sites on the barrel instead of scope and shroud. I still love this little beastie. Especially the short overall length. The shroud really makes it easy to cock the action and gives the gun a great tactical look. It's a humbling yet proud feeling when I realized I own a pellet rifle that is more accurate than I am. Ha! Plenty of room to grow into this beast! I will be keeping this rifle for the rest of my life. Always be safe and have fun! Tony
Things I liked:Excellent accuracy. Using Beeman Kodiak HP 10.34gr pellets, I was grouping within 1/2" (5 shot groups) at 20 yds off of a sandbag within 10 minutes of sighting it in. Not as good with lighter weight pellets like Crosman Premier 7.9gr HPs or the Beeman 7.2gr HPs but still about 3/4”. I put a 4x12 Leaper's scope on it and it is surprisingly good so far, no issues. I love the wood finish, it’s more of a matte than glossy. Whacked over 30 chipmunks with it in 2 months, they are what I bought the rifle for. I’ve had a population explosion in the last two years. I can’t comment on the durability because I only had it a few months but it appears to be a very good, high quality rifle. It is heavy but that helps stability.
Things I would have changed:Larger and/or more Allen screws for better anchoring of muzzle brake/cocking handle. It loosens up way too easily, after only a few shots, and it really affects accuracy…Loctite definitely helps here. Glad I read the other reviews here so I knew what to look for. The safety is a little hard to get to under the scope if you need to reset it, it needs to be larger to get your fingers on it.
What others should know:Barrel droop if you set it down too hard on a sandbag. Trigger is awesome out of the box, I haven’t had the need to adjust it yet. Accuracy is outstanding. The finish and workmanship are top-notch. I am very pleased. This is exactly what I wanted. Kudos to Pyramyd for fast, free shipping (3 days) and great airgun reviews, it makes selection of the right air rifle for your needs much easier.
