Things I liked: Build quality of the one I eventually received. Ability to have multiple pellets ready to go. Large Co2 cartridge is a big plus (I haven't gotten to the end of the first one yet). If you're concerned with dispatching squirrels, this rifle will do it at a reasonable distance.
Things I would have changed: Although info says that the rifle is sighted in before leaving the factory at about 10 meters, mine wasn't. I didn't think I could be that bad at 30 feet. My own re-sighting fixed it. I'm trying to get better at hitting that bullseye without buying a scope (my issue not the rifle's). I needed the features, but I didn't need the weight. However, since I'm not carrying it around for very long, it'll be OK.
What others should know: The first shipment was damaged in transit. Pyramid Air was quick to respond and replace the unit. So long as you take care of your issues within the return period, you're "golden."
Things I liked: Feel, weight, well, everything. I love the idea of not having to pump for every single shot. Yet it still has the power you want/need.
Things I would have changed: To make it completely awesome, they need to design a better front sight. Merely pushing it left or right is not that accurate to perfectly sight in. A simple screw would do the job.
What others should know: You'll get about 60-70 shots with the 2 co2 powerletts. The 90 gram tank, just about 200 shots. Great trigger pull, not overly loud to shoot. Pricey, but well worth it, in my books.
Things I liked: The easy answer to what I like is ... everything. Outstanding features of this rifle are its accuracy, the way it feels in my hands, the eight shot magazines, the quality machining and finishing of the metal parts, the efficient use of CO2, the really nice smooth trigger, and the available extras, including a silencer and an adapter which allows use of two 12s instead of one 88.
Things I would have changed: This rifle has been around for a long time. Why isn't a wood stock available yet?
What others should know: I originally thought this rifle would be too expensive. An extra $100 for the CO2 adapter, $40 more for the 'muzzle brake' (aka a true silencer), and a scope and rings, brought the total to a shade over $500. Well, I'm very happy I bought this package, and if you do, you will be too. I've accumulated over 30 airguns. This one is the most accurate. The last time I shot it, I put the first 16 .22 pellets in one ragged hole at 50 feet. This gun makes me a shooter. I can't believe how accurate it is. 80-100 shots on two 12s. Great economy of CO2. One downside is that mine seemed pellet picky when I first started shooting it. I gravitated to Falcons exclusively now. No jams, Very very rare mis-feeds, usually my fault. The more I have shot this rifle, the smoother it gets. It's my #1 go to.
I just purchased a Hammerli 850 air magnum rifle and bought a Bushnell trophy xlt scope. What mounts should I buy?
Get a dovetail to weaver adapter mount. Use high see thru scope rings for weaver/pic rail so scope objective will rise above the front sight. For smaller than 50mm objective, use medium hight rings. Make sure to match rings to scope tube. . .1" etc. . .
How long can you leave a 88gram co2 cartridge in the gun once it's been punctured without it leaking out?
Indefinitely as long as you don't store in a open where it has a chance of getting to hot . Always use pelgun oil to keep the seals fresh.
There is on the internet a conversion unit which will allow a 12 gm CO2 cartridge to replace the 88 gm one. It is only 5 inches long. Would this allow changing the 12 gm cartridge without removing the adapter?
The adapter holds two 12gr co2's. The loaded adapter is used in place of the one 88gr co2. You must screw it in to use and screw it out to change co2's.
In the recommended accessories section below it shows the 2 / 12 gram Co2 adaptor it sells for 100.00 dollars.
