Things I liked: European Beech (France) wood stock, action/ spring tube/ barrel/ trigger and trip / sights...made in El Reino de España. Low effort in cocking the rifle ...yet it will deliver a powerful shot down range! (poor bunny). Slight recoil, butt pad covers that issue very good....Great addition to my collection!
Things I would have changed: I just don't like ballistic grade plastics used for trigger blades...But it works very well
What others should know: This airgun is a excellent value for the money, here you have a "all European" constructed gun with no made in China parts (Diana! did you hear that...Mod 34 to 52) . I bought my first Norica in 1985 from a small hardware store in Torrejon de Ardoz, Madrid...Still capp 'n critters with it!!
Things I liked: Good quality materials, ok trigger, nice weight, easy, smooth cocking (short stroke), good workmanship and attention to detail, great value for the money, very nice looking, nicely finished stock., pretty accurate out of the box with fibre optic sights. Nice not having to replace the trigger first thing. Its a pleasant shooter with a smallish kick. Looks real nice mounted on the wall in my gun rack. I know you can get cheaper guns with cheap scopes and other come ons because I have a couple of them, but this is a really nice rifle and , for the price, an honest bargain.
Things I would have changed: Metal trigger and guard would be nice. Maybe an optional bull barrel. And definitely, an option for a nitro piston. But for a buck and a half, its fine just like it is.
What others should know: Barrel seemed dry enough out of the box. Some of the joints in the cocking mechanism were maybe too dry and cocking it produced produced some minor creaks and groans, initially. But a drop of lube here and there and by 50 or so shots, cocking it felt almost as smooth as my nitro piston Benjamin..
Things I liked: While not too heavy, it feels solid and well-balanced in the firing position, making it easier to hold steady while aiming than my Diana 48. Like all springers, there's a little recoil, but this one is quick and quite tolerable. The overall quality of the gun is very pleasing. There's nothing cheap about it except the price.
Things I would have changed: The stock is a little thin on either side where it's slotted for the lever, however, I'm sure it won't be a problem if the wood is of good quality, which it appears to be. I would also have made the rear sight adjustable without tools, like the one on my RWS. Both of these are minor concerns.
What others should know: A well made break-barrel air rifle at a great price. I did not vote on accuracy since I have not yet sighted in the gun, but I get the impression from the few shots I've fired that this baby hits hard!
