Things I liked: Accuracy, heft,looks, quality.
Things I would have changed: Steel for the whole front sight assembly and a steel trigger guard.
What others should know: If you don't like a heavy air rifle don't buy this. If you do buy don't review and whine about the weight.
Things I liked: Just about everything. I should have bought one of these a long, long time ago. Best air rifle I have owned. At 30' off of a very poor rest it shoots one-hole groups when I do my part, and it is not picky about pellets. Kodiak XH, Meisterkugeln, Dynapoint, Crossman Premier, TS10, RWS Match, Diabolo Exact, RWS Superpoint, shoots them all well. I run a Leaper's 3-9 and it can take advantage of an even better scope, and deserves one.
Things I would have changed: Add a fully adjustable Rekord trigger with a metal trigger blade. Other than that this pellet rifle is about perfect.
What others should know: Some may say it's heavy (I think it's fine). Finish is typical RWS = Beautiful. Not as sensitive to hold as other springers I have shot. I was looking at getting a PCP because I wasn't happy with my springers, I just saved a bunch of money. I need to get one in .22 now. The only disadvantage is it is a little difficult to load, especially with wadcutters. If you have big hands, or are in a hurry forget it. Use a proper loading tool and the issue goes away. Not inexpensive but I would highly recommend it. Great for a "do everything" gun. Hunt, field target, practicing proper shooting technique, etc. Can you tell I like this rifle? If you are considering it, buy one. I don't think you will regret it. ;-)
Things I liked: The Dana 48's .22 side lever pull system is very well made in my opinion. The trigger has a very light pull compared to my Gamo .177's trigger. I haven't shot any rodents yet, so I can't say anthing about the power it has.
Things I would have changed: I'm not sure why the stock has to be wood. The weapon is very heavy and in my opinion it is too heavy for hiking around with as you hunt rodents. It needs to be lighter. It is difficult to load .22 pellets into due to the close tolerance of the barrell's hole.This, however, insures a good seal just before the rifle is fired. Fact, I have shaved many pellets loading them into the barrell.
What others should know: This rifle may last a life time. It is solid, but very heavy. I had to buy a tripod to shoot it at length. I removed the scope it came with, because it did not have Mil dots. I replaced the scope with a mil dot scope and I am very pleased. It might be better to buy it without a scope. Do your homework.
