Things I liked:My wife bought me this gun as a gift about 6 years ago, so mine doesn't have the T05 trigger. I would have bought it .22 version if I'd had the choice. That said, the .177 shoots a very flat trajectory which is useful in the field. It still packs a big punch, and penetrates very well. The ergonomics on this air rifle are excellent, given a brief break-in period (for your arm as well as the gun). Once you get used to it you can shoot hundreds of pellets in a plinking session. You will need a 10.5 grain pellet for accuracy. I like the H&N barracudas. You will also need the weaver scope mount made by RWS, or your scope will creep from the recoil. This gun can break a cheap scope (mine did) so get a good one. Accuracy is excellent once you learn the artillery hold. You need to keep your hand (or something soft) between the gun and any solid rest you put it on, or the gun will jump from the recoil before the pellet leaves the barrel.
Things I would have changed:I have heard that Umarex is offering upgrade kits for some of its guns. Is there one for this model? I would love to see a gas spring conversion kit that I could have installed at PA. I know that this would probably void the warrantee but it might be worth it.
What others should know:I have had to replace the mainspring and seals in this gun three times. The first time I just cleaned the barrel with bore oil, a big no-no. The next time I put too much of RWS' own chamber oil into the gun, and it made a sound like a .22 long. Someone needs to explain how to oil this gun properly. The third time the pellet I was using simply had some oily residue on it right out of the box, and the gun dieseled on me. Be very careful to keep oil out of the compression chamber and barrel of this air rifle. RWS will cover the cost of fixing the gun but not the cost of shipping to its headquarters in AK.
Things I liked:Style of the stock. The wood shines up well. Cleans up good. The barrel is solid.
Things I would have changed:I'd probably only put a marking somewhere that we could see to know what model exactly we have. Thats it. Nothing big, its the perfect rifle.
What others should know:Its got somw weight to it. Its not a light weight little air gun that smaller kids would need to be trying to use yet. Its sot some "meat" to it so to speak!
Things I liked:This is my first adult air rifle. I really like the fit and finish. The gun shoulders great. The power is much more than I expected. It shoots completely through thick dog food cans at 60 yds. I shoot unopened coke cans and it explodes them. This gun has a lot of power for a airgun. I rated the gun a 5 in accuracy because it shoots flat and has little wind drift and still manages to shoot very good groups. I have been practicing 1/10th scale silhouette and in heavy wind you do not have to compensate more that a inch or so. I am very impressed. The gun likes the Crosman Premier Heavy .177 Cal, 10.5 Grains, Domed. This gun is at its best with long range open sights. 60yds is the limit in my yard and accuracy is still very good.
Things I would have changed:Trigger is not great for target shooting but with practice you can manage to make long accurate shots.
What others should know:it is powerful and use a heavy pellet.
