Things I liked:This gun was very accurate right out of the box. The bolt cycles smoothly when its able to, ill touch more on that in the "what other airgunners should know" section. I added the muzzlebrake, and a Accushot sidewheel scope to it and its a nice package. I also added a caldwell adjustable bipod which i attached to a weaver rail screwed to the underside of the stock.
Things I would have changed:A larger bolt probe, again refer to "what other airgunners should know" section for more on this...I would also like a less "plasticky" synthetic stock, considering the price point of this gun. My Ruger Air Magnum has a more solid feeling synthetic stock, that material feels more durable and firearms grade. This was my reason for 4 stars on value for my money.
What others should know:okay... so when I first started shooting this I had a lot of CPHP's on hand and was getting terrible accuracy with these (1 inch groups at 10 yards!) I also noticed the bolt / action did not cycle smoothly. I then realized that it was the pellets. The wall of the pellet skirt on most pellets, including the CPHP's are thin. The wall of the pellet skirt on say, an RWS superdome, or any RWS pellet is very thick. This tiny needle like bolt probe centers itelf well inside the back end of an RWS pellet, but not a CPHP, or other similiar pellets. This was causing poor magazine cycling, and i think the bolt probe was pushing on the back of each CPHP pellet in a different spot giving poor accuracy, where in a RWS pellet the bolt probe fits snugly in the back of the pellet, centering itself perfectly each time. In closing, im getting sub dime sized groups at 30 yards with all RWS brand pellets. Also, not a deal breaker, but in .22, im getting 120 shots on a good day out of one 88 gram cartridge. Not quite what the advertisement said. I guess thats the difference between useable shots and "shots" a pellet rolling out of the end of the barrel and onto the floor in front of you is not really a shot. As long as your expectations are realistic in this regard, youll be addicted to this gun in no time.
Things I liked:My 850 is nicely accurate: under 1/2" groups at 25yds shooting JSB 8.4gr. The continuous dovetail rail makes scope mounting & positioning easy. Fairly light. Lots of shots. Trigger is nice and light and consistent. Safety is easy to reach which is nice since its an automatic safety.
Things I would have changed:Make the action smoother.
What others should know:Use the Walther 88g CO2s and a drop of Pelgun oil. The forestock behind the CO2 cover is thick enough to support a bipod. I mounted a small weaver rail using a couple machine screws and clip my bipod to it. Its holding up fine. The action can be a bit rough but not horrible. Certainly not a reason to buy this gun. I really enjoy how accurate it is... good German airgun. I'm currently using a Leapers 3-9x compact scope and wish for higher power and/or a finer reticle, the gun is accurate enough for higher power & precise scope.
Things I liked:It is a bolt action that takes all kinds of pellet shapes and sizes. The open sights are easy to see.
Things I would have changed:I personally would have like the fore stock to be a little thicker to allow mounting a bipod or a sling mount much easier.
What others should know:Buy the optional 12g co2 adapter if 88g are not in local stores. It will make shooting this much more enjoyable
