Things I liked:Accuracy, Design, Weight, and Trigger Pull.
Things I would have changed:A cap on the bottom of the grip. This would allow one to store extra magazines or pellets. Please add an extra spring for down the road.
What others should know:This is a rife with nuances. It's fun, light, and *accurate* for an incredibly low price. A photographer's photos are as good as the photographer, not just the camera. I now have 3 IZH 61 that I shoot with my young son. 10 M and paper. This rifle will be as accurate as your practice. To improve IZH performance, simply find the right pellet,consistent offhand technique,and practice. For me I find H&N match pellets and a very mild hold on the grip allow the best groupings. Don't let this one fool you....it's gold.
Things I liked:The repeating mechanism is nifty and works well. The trigger is better than expected. It's a great value, especially if you catch it on sale. "Fun" describes it well!
Things I would have changed:Not much. Accept its limitations due to its price point and enjoy it. Assembly quality control could be improved (nothing is in line - mine needed a severe windage adjustment to hit target). The factory iron sights are mediocre. It seems to be over lubricated from the factory.
What others should know:It's a pretty small gun. The buttstock can be adjusted further than you think - just remove it and relocate the nut which should be obvious. The factory says that they use a lot of preservative, and that the bore should be cleaned before use. Heed this recommendation; out of the box, my bore was unbelievably filthy!! After one cleaning, I was getting 1" 5-shot groups at 25-feet. After a second more extensive bore cleaning, I got down to half-inch 5-shot groups at 25-feet. I suspect further improvement will occur with use and additional cleanings. Heavier pellets seem to fit the clips better. Yes - the pellets can fall out of the clips, but this isn't a big deal as it is easily preventable. It's a great grab and go rifle for plinking cans at 25 to 33 feet. Most of the time, these guns come with a spare mainspring - I didn't get one.
Things I liked:This rifle is fun to shoot! If you buy this, you will have a hard time putting it down. It might look kinda funny but it is surprisingly comfortable and the buttstock will adjust for taller/larger people.
Things I would have changed:The scope rail. I believe it is designed for an aperture peep sight. There is not enough room for the scope to be mounted comfortably, however if you buy one of the pre-packaged deals from Pyramyd, a sufficient adapter is included for scope mounting. The magazine release could be better.
What others should know:Some pellets have a tendency to fall out of the clip. Since I am an avid airgunner I have quite a collection of different pellets and I found that Beeman coated hollowpoints work very well and do not fall out as easily as some others. Also you can seat the pellets in the clip with a toothpick or small dowel.
