Things I liked:Aesthetically pleasing, well finished Walnut stock. Well defined machining of steel barrel. Rest area for your cheek lines up nicely to the sights. Placement of safety is neat. The grip fits a medium large to large hand well. Gun sits solid in carriage of arms when taking a shot. Has a nice powerful feel on shoot; shoots powerfully although I don't have a chronograph to check consistency. Accurate if one can control the power and recoil. Looks sharp.
Things I would have changed:Quality control with Quattro trigger. This is the second one I have had to malfunction. The sear gets jammed on this making the loaded gun unable to shoot. Very dangerous for the sear can suddenly release and gun fires. Have not learned how to fix problem yet. Do not like Quattro trigger. Has loose rattly feeling and side play. Am not impressed with the feel of trigger depression and stage release, feels harsh. Rifle is hard to cock, nor does cocking cycle feel or sound smooth. The hard plastic on the cone shaped muzzle break slips off the hand easily. Especially if sweaty. With a hard cocking barrel this is a recipe for disaster. I do not like how the forearm stock screws are set up, you need a huge screwdriver and it is a hassle getting the small fillips head locking bolt out. Good idea for keeping the forearm stock screws in, not so good in practice. Make the slots in the large screws more narrow and the fillips head slots larger. Temper them harder. Rear sight notch is to narrow, perhaps it would be acceptable if fiber optics were removed. Maybe I'll put a piece of tape over the fiber optics. Poor balance, nose heavy and tiring to aim and although aim feels solid gun wanders. Stock feels blunt in hold position, feels fuzzy making intuitive hold and sight adjustments. Maybe better for bench shooting. Recoil shock is catastrophic, but remember, this is a powerful air rifle. The rifle will not forgive errors in shooting technique
What others should know:Although the walnut stock and machining on the steel barrel are excellent this gun was not well thought out. Whipping together innovative systems with poor quality control is not correct for gun usage. The Quattro trigger has some good ideas but poor execution. The muzzle break feels like trying to grasp a greased pool ball. The barrel is accurate but shooting the gun accurately is difficult. The rifle looks good but feels gimmicky with the overall assembly and function slapshot. It needs better reflection in design and craftsmanship.
Things I liked:I have a .22 cal that I still doing some target shooting but so far so good I am going to be use it for small game hunting
Things I would have changed:I like a to see a conv to a gas spring for it
Things I liked:I liked the walnut stock which really makes this gun stand out in this price range. I bought the .177 version as I prefer the flatter trajectory of that caliber. Very nice build quality. As others have done, I also fitted a better scope. I replaced the original scope with a Leapers 3x9-40 AO. I've only shot about 150 pellets and accuracy is averaging about 1/2" @ 25 yards. The shot cycle has smoothed out some and I'm sure it has some break-in to go, but so far I'm very satisfied.
Things I would have changed:Either have a scope delete option or upgrade the supplied scope to one that has AO. Adjustable objective is mandatory on air rifles that will be shot at ranges varying from 10 yards to 50 yards.
What others should know:For $150 and a scope change this is still a great value air rifle! I would recommend to anyone. For anyone that likes to tweak their guns a bit, a couple of longer trigger screws will get the 2 stage trigger working nicely.
