Things I liked:Overall fit, finish and function are AWESOME! I am really impressed by the looks and operation, and it's a really nice piece of walnut for the stock. All controls are positive and work well. Tru Glo sights work really well.
Things I would have changed:It is what it is, and it is heavy! I don't mind- some may! I think a GREAT improvement would be to make a rear sight that fits on the picatinny rail, so it can be removed to make room for a scope if desired.This would also increase the sight radius. Rear sight had to be removed for my scope anyway!
What others should know:This rifle seems to hit hard and shoot well- I am learning this "artillery hold" method of spring piston shooting- it makes all the difference. I am still in the break-in period, but it is definitely capable of ragged 1-hole 5 shot groups at 10m. At 25 yards I am getting about 1" groups, but I think it is capable of better- my inexperience, time constraints, and a windy range time conspired against me.
Things I liked:This gun is georgous. Beautiful stock and metal work. Mine is in .22 cal. and loves the inexpensive Crossman HP and also the JSB Jumbos. At my 20 yard range it will constantly stay at .40 or less.
Things I would have changed:Nothing.
What others should know:I would like to thank Rick Eutsler at AirGun Web.Com for the great video review he has done on this rifle. He stated that although it is a springer it will shoot just as well of sandbags and gun rest. I found this statement to be true. It shoots the same either way. Thanks Rick for all your help.
Things I liked:I got one of these in .22 caliber, and let me just say that I am impressed. First of all, the nice checkering, blued steel, brassy trigger, and attractive wood make the rifle itself a very pretty piece. Second, although I initially found it a bit awkward, the bolt-action-style loading port is actually quite fun to use. The whole loading and cocking process makes a very satisfying bunch of mechanical noises. Thirdly, this gun is quite accurate. My groupings were a bit shaky at the start, but after putting a few hundred pellets through it, I can now reliably put shots through the same hole in a .25" bullseye at 10m using the iron sights. The hammer-style safety is intuitive and attractive, and the sights are good. The 11mm/Weaver combination scope rail is also a nice touch.
Things I would have changed:My Torpedo is picky about what fits in its breech. Two kinds of RWS pellets and H&N Barracudas have fit quite nicely, but the H&N Crow Magnums won't fit without a great deal of force applied. The Gamo Rockets I tried also had trouble fitting. I'm curious to see if other people have this issue; maybe this rifle just has a narrower-than-usual breech. Also, to get the irons to function properly I had to adjust the rear sight really far to the left.
What others should know:For me, the best-performing pellets in this gun have been the H&N Hollowpoints, followed by the H&N Barracuda Match pellets. My rifle will shoot either one near-perfectly without adjusting the sights in between. I suspect that at ranges longer than 10m, the Barracudas will do better because of their higher weight. RWS Super-H Points did almost as well as the H&N pellets. The RWS Lead-free Hyper Velocity pellets were also really, really accurate, but they shoot so differently from other pellets that a lot of sight adjustment is necessary to use them.
