Things I liked:The things I like about this beauty is just about everything. There was a moment in the break in process (still really breaking it in), I became a little bummed out that this rifle involved so much work between cocking, artillery hold, buying and seroing a great Hawke scope...I felt like going back to my Gamo (which there is nothing wrong with, it's a very sweet .22 Silent Stalker IGT Whisper). But I stayed with the RWS (I've had a 34 for many years). I made peace with it. Loosened it up with lots of shooting. Today I nailed an egg on top of a glass bottle at 50 yds., didn't touch the glass. For me, that's awesome and exciting. The squirrels and crows and a few coyotes were on the corner waiting for the next bus out of town after that
Things I would have changed:I like shooting heavy pellets, in particular, Eunjins. The RWS doesn't take their wide profile.
What others should know:Many shooters believe the RWS Magnum is the best break barrel on the market. I'm starting to agree. Make sure you have a more than decent and stable scope secured on this big boy rifle. You know you've been shooting after dancing with the Magnum. I stared at this weapon every day for months online and finally went for it. It already holds second place on my rifle rack. Number one is a .25 cal PCP. It's close...
Things I liked:the accuracy and power are more than I expected. The scope was a great fit for this rifle. I was able to get 3 shots at 30 yards within .125. Two of those were in the in the same hole(shooting at a phone book the pellets were on top of each other). The weight was heavy but I liked it. The trigger was better than I expected out of an air rifle, crisp and smooth. I was also surprised at the stock quality. The recoil pad was also a great addition. This was my first air rifle of this kind of quality(and price) and I can honestly say it isn't cheap but you get what you pay for. I will have to hide this from my son and no he wont be getting this for Christmas.
Things I would have changed:I would change the length of the butt stock to accommodate for a longer length of pull. The sound from firing was also louder than I expected. I did get a slight workout after 40-50 shots and rearming so I would change the force necessary (if possible). Some wish lists might not be possible do to the power of this rifle. I would love to see 1300fps from a .22 if possible.
What others should know:yes that you will love the power and accuracy.
Things I liked:Pyramyd Air's Customer service! I ordered this Combo late, with the 20 for 20 option, but I really needed it fast and didn't want to pay the freight for quick delivery. Pyramyd came through, and gun arrived ahead of schedule. I like the construction of the gun, the scope and the overall feel of a quality product. Plus the 20 for 20 option allowed me to pull the gun out of the box, take it to the back yard where my brother had spotted a treed raccoon (same varmint that was wrecking havoc with my bird feeders). One shot 25-30 yds with nothing done to the scope right out of the box and I do not have to worry about him any more. This is a powerful, heavy gun, and super accurate.
Things I would have changed:Make it easier to cock! Although it seems to get a little bit easier after 30-50 pellets have been fired. Maybe have an option for a synthetic stock would cut down on the weight. If I had to walk very far, I'm not sure I could drag the gun with me.
What others should know:Don't buy an air gun from anyone else! When you order yours, be sure and opt for the 20 for 20 set-up option. When you do the 20 for 20, remember you will have to buy a case if you are ordering a scope since the rifle + scope will not fit back in the original box.
