Things I liked: Lets just say I'm not an AG "snob". I own a .22 trail NP, Gamo silent cat, crosman raven, 57' blue streak and a 880 and crosman raven. So I will be fair and not say "well is no diana, etc" obviously no, it's not. I will be comparing my opinions of my particular hatsan 1000s striker .22 rifle to the ones I own and my experience with them. The rifle arrived on time and was packed well. I like the overall shape and feel of this rifle. The cocking joint mechanism is different then i am use too. It is connected from the barrel to the cocking mechanism I guess you would say. It consists of 1 solid metal bar instead of my other rifles that have a 2 piece cocking bar that fold in. This makes it feel heavy duty and with less moving parts seems like it will last longer, but makes cocking torque somewhat heavier. Shoots harder then my trail NP which was surprising. I got the 10 for 10. Using RWS hobbies it produced 1015 fps first shot!
Things I would have changed:I noticed the bluing on mine was not really up to par and pretty uneven. That was kinda a bummer. I also couldn't get any groups at first and I even started with an upgraded scope and cleaned prior (lots of gelled grease everywhere btw). I looked down the barrel and in front of the muzzle was a large piece of scrap plastic molded to the barrel. That kinda sucked to remove safely. Also that made me think that they don't have a quality control lol. They say it is a good step up from a youth gun.. I dunno about that. It cocks harder then the guns I own even after being broke in. It is also from heavy and puts a lot of weight on your forward hand. It's lighter in weight yes but I can shoulder my trail (about 10 pound w scope) way easier.
What others should know:Shoots very accurate once broken in and very hard. I get around 780 now w crosman domed 14.3. Heavy duty long lasting feeling but you may take a chance w/ a random quality issue. I recommend highly this gun for anyone looking for under $150 rifle. And you know there is the usualy complaints about this product. such as the trigger/loudness but all are reasonable. I would trade my $160 gamo for another one. Not a youth gun or really entry level. A mans gun with above average build and power.
Things I liked:Ease of use, lightweight, accurate. I own the big brother to this gun also the 125 sniper in .25 cal and I must say this little Guy is much more forgiving to shoot than the sniper.I got this gun for my nephew he loved my sniper but was a bit much for him. He loves this gun. As do I. Other than the hollow twang in the buttstock. Expandable foam will be a quick fix. Also crossman ultra mags were too big for the breech. I also have a Winchester ws1028 that is an absolute dream. That's rite. A cheap Winchester. I have done a little work to it but all in all I just lucked out with it. But I put that gun down to shoot the striker. Its just fun. Sighted it in with 10 shots and its held for 200 or so now. Shoots a very respectable 3/4 group at 20 yards and will improve. I feel the sniper was overpriced and this little gem was a steal. I feel I should buy 2more just invade they discontinued them. LOL. Young or old male or female big or small. You'll enjoy it.
Things I would have changed:Hollow buttstock, poor blueing, overnight on the back porch on a humid night and it showed surface rust. and the breech seal needed shimmed but no biggie. Well worth the 120 bones.
What others should know:I feel this is the best value on the site. Have shot a wide array of springers and own some quality and some throwaways. And I still enjoy to shoot it.
Things I liked:The curved trigger pulls my finger to the same position every time. The adjustable pull weight of the trigger is a great option, I have mine "tweaked in" just right for me. The scope is really nice for a rifle/scope combo and the open sights are excellent, (I used them for quite a while before I got the eye relief issue with the scope resolved). The weight and balance of the rifle is just about right for unsupported shooting. I also like the automatic safety.
Things I would have changed:The scope stop holes need to be located further to the rear of the dovetail for better eye relief of. The chamber is a little too tight, I've had problems with pellet skirts being mangled because I couldn't seat them far enough down inside the chamber. These two issues are reason I gave this gun 4 stars overall. The overall rating is really 4.5 because these issues have been successfully resolved, but they did cause a little aggravation.
What others should know:The pellets that I've had the best success with so far a Benjamin Discovery 14.3 gr hollow points (.22), they shoot just as accurately, if not better, then some of the more expensive ones I've tried. I've had this gun for about a year now and I've spent enough time both shooting it and experimenting with adjustments on it that I've really developed a fondness for it and would highly recommend it. It is definitely one of my favorites and high on my list of go to guns when I go out shooting.
