Things I liked:RWS craftmanship, great iron sights. The best thing about this rifle is that the pellets make a very satisfying "thwap" when you hear the pellet hit your target compared to the "tink" of other rifles. A very accurate air rifle.
Things I would have changed:Make it lighter...
What others should know:A lot of the weight of this rifle is out on the front end of the gun. It is not unbearable to balance but it's just something to compensate for.
Things I liked:I like all of the metal work on the rifle. Top notch German manufacturing. The rifle feels precise without any slap or slack, cock after cock.
Things I would have changed:At a minimum, I would add a metal trigger guard. For the money, there should not be a plastic trigger guard on this rifle. Next, the butt pad is not a pad. It is solid hard plastic. I wish I had purchased the RWS 350 Magnum wood stock that has a true rubber butt pad. My bad for trying to save $60.00. Woulda-Coulda-Shoulda ...
What others should know:A full day at the range was enough to teach me that learning the Artillery Hold is a must to shoot this magnum springer accurately. This rifle seems to like heavy pellets. They seem more consistent. To explain, I used the Gamo Paper Targets, 100 pack. I put up a 4x3 grid of 12 targets on top of the NRA 50 yard Slow Shoot Pistol Target that the range hands out. This made for less down range hikes. I used the pellets that came with the RWS cleaning kit. That is, I started with the RWS Superdome .22 Cal, 14.5 Grains, Domed. Working on my Artillery Hold I was able to keep them in the black (6-8) and inner white (9-10) of the Gammo Targets after about 80 pellets. Then I moved to the JSB Match Diabolo Exact Jumbo Heavy, 5.52mm head, 18.1 grains and I was able to keep my shots in the 8-10 range of the target. These pellets were recommended on the Youtube AirGunWeb video "Shooting your New Spring Airgun - Take AIM Episode 16". BTW, I highly recommend this video. After I ran out of the JSB Match Diabolo Exact Jumbo Heavy, 5.52mm head, 18.1 grains, I tried the JSB Match Diabolo Exact Jumbo Monster, 5.52mm head, 25.4 grains. I found that I had to shoot 1 1/4" higher to hit the center of the target, due I suppose to the heavy weight of the pellet. But, the left to right (horizontal) accuracy was dead on with this heavy pellet. And, after compensating for the drop, I was able to put these pellets in the center dead on. Ergo, heavy = more consistent in this rifle.
Things I liked:Diana is AWESOME! She loves to get cocked, and she'll take a pellet down her breech any time. She purrs when I stroke her lever. My kinda woman!
Things I would have changed:She don't even talk back!
What others should know:You have to handle her with care and respect, or she could become explosive prematurely with unexpected or even disastrous results.
