Things I liked:Power, accuracy, looks. I don't understand when people say magnum power spring piston rifles are inaccurate and some of these people are long time avid air gunners and should know that when you use these rifles you have to use heavy pellets like jsb heavys, baracudas, etc. and go and write and do YouTube reviews on these guns using light weight ammo expecting good results and give people the wrong idea of these guns. I have the sniper in .22 caliber and get one inch groups at 50 yards using 18 grain jsb heavys. Don't bother wasting your time using even a 14 grain say Crossman premiere although they are great pellets for other guns. My gun shoots around 980 fps with 14 grain Crossman premieres but if you bring it down in the 800s with something heavy it likes it can be very accurate and puts out lots of power. That's just my two pellets worth and what I found.
Things I would have changed:Shorten the length, it's a little too long; and make it with a wood stock.
Things I liked:Shot about 200 rounds so far. Smoothing out .Its very accurate IF you control your trigger pull . Its not too hold sensitive like other springers. Very adjustable to your liking . But lets face it , we want it for the raw power you cant find in any other spring piston rifle.Power to dispatch safely . Quiet for this kind of power.
Things I would have changed:Scope is ok if you turn the bell out 20 turns but still you should get a leapers for it. The stock is adjustable but it could use some refinement. The cheek piece came off the posts .The collars cracked tightening down the post. I fixed all of it and added foam to all open cavities. Tear it down and clean all the cosmoline off it. add blue lock tight to all screws. lube all joints .
What others should know:Its not a refined gun and its made in turkey so I expected the poor quality control.Mine came out of the box with a striped screw.Its power plant is built soild though . Good welds and good design. I bought it for the power and got a powerful and accurate gun. I would buy it again. Cant wait to tune it and possibly refine "The Beast" . yes JSB is the pellet of choice.
Things I liked:Right out of the box this .25 Caliber Springer is a beef stick . It has a smooth comfortable finish, good steel, it is solid, and it is powerful. I have not mounted the scope as I like open sights and this gun is shooting a very tight group with JSB Diablo Kings .25 Cal. pellets. I also use the artillery hold with this rifle and it works well at several ranges from 10 yards out to my maximum to date of 50 yards. I have many years of military marksmanship and grew hunting, I love this Rifle.
Things I would have changed:We all know a free scope is just that but Leapers makes a very nice UTG 3 X 12 X 44 with an etched glass reticle SCP3-UGM312AOIEW for those who wish to upgrade their optics for less than $200.00. Use the bipod that came with the rifle as a paper weight to hold down your targets and if you need a bipod there are several goods ones for well under $30.00 out there. Personally I don't think it would be to your advantage to use one but they look impressive.
What others should know:I did not find this rifle any harder to cock than several Gamo or Crossman rifles I have used but it is a heavy weapon and it is advertised to be. It has recoil but nothing I would conceder unreasonable. The recoil pad provided works quite well and can adjusted utilizing the three additional pads provided but for my fit they were not needed. I looked at several brands and have shot many of them, if you want a well made heavy weapon this rifle is for you, it is in no way a toy and with the youngsters adult supervision is a must (as it should be with any gun) because this is one powerful air rifle capable of inflecting real damage.
