Things I liked:Beautiful gun.heavy ,well built.Accurate.
Things I would have changed:Should be easier to load.For someone with larger finger having to insert the pellet in the chamber can be a bit difficult.
What others should know:Gun ships with a hard plastic washer /seal where the barrel meets the air chamber .This is the junction where the pellet is inserted into the barrel.This plastic washer is a piece of crap.After about 50 shots gun will start to lose compression.The washer in my gun broke in half after a few shots.I also have another rifle of the same model I bought elsewhere.It has the same plastic seal and it also caused problems after short use.I solved the problem by finding a rubber washer of the same size and replacing it.Now the rifle shoots hard and accurate every time.I have already fired over a thousand shots with the rubber washer with no problems.
Things I liked:Accuracy. I finally got around to figuring the best pellet for my particular rifle, and it's the 14.3 gr Premier, which does 830 FPS from my gun. I was initially getting 5/8 to 3/4 inch groups at 40 yards, and was impressed. After shooting several hundred pellets, I moved out to 50 yards, and the groups started opening to 2 inches and more after a while. Didn't know why. Then I read that the Premiers are one of the few pellets that can deposit lead. So I got some JB bore coumpound...but I was paranoid about ruining the muzzle crown with a brush (after reading how careful you have to be), so I decided to use felt pellets to clean the bore. Now there is concern about inadequate resistance with those pellets, I know. To solve that, I put a healthy dab of compound on the end of a felt pellet, and inserted it dab-first into the bore. I then pushed in a RWS Super-Point behind it, thinking that it gives two benefits: increasing the weight of the load (reducing piston impact), and having the point of the pellet drive itself into the felt pellet to help force it into the grooves better. Well, after ten such loads, and then five "dry" loads without the compound, I re-checked accuracy. Sub-one inch at 50 yards now. I kept the best group (7/8 inch C-T-C) to show a friend, then decided to shoot one more group, which came in at 3/4 inch C-T-C for five shots! The average ran right around one inch tho. I have found the forearm of this rifle is a little sensitive. It seems to like a moderately firm grip - no open palms or back-of-knuckles rest.
Things I would have changed:A front sight that doesn't interfere with the line-of-sight from the scope.
What others should know:Grip the forearm somewhat firmly when shooting.
Things I liked:Rifle is extremely accurate. I could group 5/8'' at 27 yards from the benchrest with a 3-9 x 50 scope. Stock has a good finishing em good grip.
Things I would have changed:I don't like the plastic parts like the front sights and the safety latcth. They could be replaced by aluminum alloy parts.
