Things I liked:Solid construction . Once sighted in , iron sights are dead on .
Things I would have changed:Initial product had bad piston , and sights are plastic . New rifle great . And I would upgrade to metal sights
What others should know:Return service speedy and easy to reach . I reccomend this company and this rifle. You won't be disappointed .
Things I liked:The power is impressive!! Beautiful rifle, the hard wood stock is a pleasure to hold and the steel is strong and well machined. I live in the country and I love to plink, but this beauty is going to become the farm manager taking care of any pesky rabbits who might want to raid my garden. Very accurate out to 40 yds so far but am having trouble dialing in tighter groups at 50 & 60 yds, but to be fair this is my first scope ever but at 61 yrs of age my eyes are not what they used to be. The box had a rip in it when it arrived and there was no bi pod in the box, but I normally shoot from a table so I am not concerned about it.
Things I would have changed:To be able to mount the scope back a little farther. I had to flip the scope mount to get better eye relief. A sling mount would be nice, I am a little bit crippled and it would be a great help in carrying but I am not sure about adding sling mounts. If anyone has done so please let me know how they worked out for you. I would like it if it were a little lighter, but not at the cost of power as I have seen this baby hit out at 85 yds with authority. After finding out just what a A.O. Scope is and what it does I would say this rifle diffidently merits one.
What others should know:This rifle is no toy! A little heavy (for me anyway) this gun has a recoil and can be a little loud depending on ammo used. The scope tends to shake loose so I'll be using lock tite. At 40 yds I can chew up the bulls eye. I think the trigger pull is a little heavy but I have not tried to adjust it yet as I am still getting to know this rifle. I think the Hatsan 1000X 22 cal was a fine investment for me that I can pass down to my Grandson when my time is done. Pyramydair was "Fast!" got my order the next day! I look forward to doing business with them for all of my air gun needs. I only gave 4 stars for accuracy as I am still trying different ammo to get a feel for what this rifle likes.
Things I liked:I like the weight. Considering its power level and light weight this Striker Vortex has no equal. Using Crosman Premier Hollow Points, 14.3 grains in 22 cal, this airgun is achieving velocities of 920 fps. It seems to be getting faster the more I shoot it. Seating the pellet to a perfect "sweet spot" can boost the pellet speed as much as 100 fps. The trigger is much better than other reviews are saying. The adjustment screw needs to be about 1/8 inch longer and the 2nd stage becomes infinitely adjustable. It is a 3mm screw.
Things I would have changed:When I bought this gun it was listed as a "Turkish Walnut" stock. NOT TRUE! It says "Hardwood" on the box. PA made it right with me though. The stock is still nice and has a walnut stain on it. I would like to see less curve on the trigger blade itself. This gun needs a permanently mounted scope base fixed to the receiver.
What others should know:If you have never used the "Vortex Gas Piston" you will be shocked. This is like shooting a super tuned springer on steroids! Cocks SUPER smooth and with more poundage than my Hatsan 95. Fires very smoothly and with so much "SNAP" it eats the scopes and mounts. I have been shooting magnum springers for 25 years and never have seen anything like this. I almost sent the gun back but I cannot put the thing down long enough to get it back in the box. I settled for a Beeman Sport Aperture Sight. Kept it light and this thing is a blast to shoot. Use degreaser and gun tight on all the screws. I gave this a 3 star rating because of inability to use a scope on it. It needs a base built on the gun when manufactured. Then the toughest scope made.
