Things I liked:Very accurate, great looks, power, handles better than good ! Smooth cocking with less effort for so much speed. Excellent open sights. (mine came with a RWS scope too) Made in Spain.
Things I would have changed:The only thing would to be an improvement on the trigger. It's okay but needs to be a little smoother crisp. Then this would be a top notch springer for the price.
What others should know:I believe this gun is RWS handed down to one of their subs. None the less this is a quality air gun at an inexpensive price and the build seems of well construction. I nailed three tree rats so far, from 25 to 35 yards ,one shot, done deal.
Things I liked:Great rifle for the price. It's built well, with solid lockups, fit, and finish. Blueing is good. I like the synthetic stock. It's solid, of good quality plastic. It's not hollow and cheap like the one on the Daisy/Winchesters. Built in scope stop is nice. Hood on front sight is a nice addition.
Things I would have changed:The trigger pull is a little hard. It's loosening in a little bit after about 5-600 rounds, so I expect a little more after the next 500-1000 rounds. The gun would be more accurate with a lighter trigger.
What others should know:It is pretty hold sensitive, so find how it likes to be held, and don't deviate much from that. The gun also requires an extensive break in period. I have about 5-600 rounds through it already, and I'm starting to feel some breaking in, but more is needed, especially with the trigger. After 1500 rounds, I suspect it will be broken in completely. It's a nice shooter, so be patient with it. Also, you might need to shim the breech seal. I did, and the pellets have noticeably more penetration in wood (don't have a chrony to confirm). After shimming the seal, the firing cycle was smoother, quieter, and no longer had any twang. I think I got the last one in .22 and I don't think UmarexUSA is going to import anymore in .22. If you can find one, get it. It's a great shooting rifle in .22. I'm sure .177 is nice, too. But in .22, this is an excellent hunter and pest eliminator.
Things I liked:Light weight, Synthetic stock, power, and accuracy.
Things I would have changed:The Trigger pull is a bit hard so it is hard to get good groups.
What others should know:I got the .22 cal and it will take down a squirrels, chipmunks, raccoons, and rabbits easy. So far i have shot 1/2 groups at 20 yards and 1 inch groups at 30 yards.
