Things I liked: the looks, feel, power for target practice. This is a beautiful air rifle, slightly above my wife's Ruger Air Hawk and son's Beeman RS2 which are all very similar rifles (except the triggers). Get a gun case to keep from scratching it up. After tightening the barrel pivot bolt (remove the stock first), the rifle is VERY accurate. I am not a good shot but can get less than 1/2" groups at 15 yds. using Benjamin hollow points. They shoot slightly better in this gun than Crosman Premiers. At 25 yds., I get less than 1" groups by just guessing the elevation on the factory scope. I can get 1 1/4" groups around the bullseye at 50 yds by shooting 5" high from where the factory scope is sighted in at 15 yds. These are all with the forestock resting on a pad. After adjusting the rear trigger adjustment screw out, it has gone from bad to excellent. If you unscrew it too far, the gun discharges when taken off 'safety'. If you don't Loctite it into place, it will continue to unscrew and fall out.
Things I would have changed: I would put a really soft rubber recoil pad on it. The one on the gun is as hard as the wood stock and the gun has enough recoil so your shoulder knows it after a while. The hand grip is made for really big hands. I wear XL gloves and my hands seem barely big enough. The scope rings could easily come from the factory with epoxied pins to engage the grooves in the receiver where the scope mounts. I made the pin holes with a 3/16" drill bit in a drill press with the lower ring halves held in a drill press vise. I used longer Allen screws to mount the scope to the receiver. I removed the open sights. The rear one casts a big shadow in the scope view. I don't have to worry about damaging the front sight while cocking if it isn't there. The scope is 'good enough' to 50 yards for me. I don't know that I am a good enough shot to take advantage of a better scope anyway. I didn't remove any lock washers from under the front trigger adjusting screw because I like how it works now.
What others should know: I received this rifle from Pyramyd Air in the first week of January 2016. After fighting with the loose 'artillery hold' for weeks, I found I could get the most accuracy and tightest groups by holding the gun firmly in both hands and against my shoulder like a conventional firearm. That is not true for me using similar rifles: Ruger Air Hawk or Beeman RS2. One scope ring bolt loosened up after shooting a while. So a person needs to check them regularly. Not having shot a springer break-barrel rifle before, it took me 250-300 shots to figure things out. I learned to shoot with a Remington Junior Special .22 using an excellent single-stage one-pound pull trigger. This gun is now close to that. The only pellets this gun doesn't like so far are 7.2 gr. Daisy Precision Max and 15.4gr. H&N Sport Rabbit Magnum II. It shoots JSB Monster Diabolo 13.43gr. pellets accurately, 7.4 gr. and 7.9 gr. Crosmans and a variety of domed, pointed, and hollow point pellets around 8-10gr.
Things I liked: This is a great rifle for the money. I shot 30 .177 10.4 gr pellets through it, had multiple 2 to 3 pellets through the same hole. Plenty of power, shoots through 2"cardboard and another 3" of phone books behind the cardboard. This has plenty of power for small game with accurate shots. The fit and finish are comparable to higher end rifles. The checkering is lazer engraved, but very comfortable. The scope is a fixed 4x32 with removable yellow dustcap for low light, with dual aluminum rings that have single allen screw clamping. The iron sights have neon day glow points, 2 green with a orange in between. Other than being made in China, this is a dream springer, barrel and breech are resembling the RWS 34, the trigger group is a copy of the Rekord Trigger group on the HW95 and adjustable. Hefty and sturdy.
Things I would have changed: The scope could be a little bit better on adjustment for focus. There are times the day glo fiber optic iron sights throw a glare on the scope if not using the yellow see thru dust caps. The secondary safety reset lever does hit the scope when pushed up to reset the safety if unable to take a shot and need to put the rifle on safe. The Iron sights work but would rather have steel iron sights with a cover over the front post like the old RWS 34.
What others should know: This is an excellent rifle for the money, something that should hold up for a long time and passed on to future generations.
Things I liked: I am very happy with this air rifle. Fantastic value. I and my friends were impressed with the quality of the wood stock. I have not installed the scope that came with it and like the tru-glow open sight set up. The front sight is even protected. I found this air rifle to be quite accurate, easy to cock and in .22 it wacks our little 'air-range' targets with quite a whack.
Things I would have changed: Nothing.
What others should know: This is a great air rifle for the money. The stock alone is impressive with full grain wood, Remington logo and nice deep cut checkering. The tru-grow sights work very well and this is a perfect firearm teaching tool, plus it is a 'blast' to shoot, all the youths seem to love this one and at the price I don't worry about it being damaged.
What scope stop can I use on this remington express,so the recoil won't push my scope back so when I order it I can also order the rings??
Use bkl rings
Do you have a sling for this Remington express air rifle that I want to buy. Also can you recommend a gun case reasonable price for this rifle that I can order from you?
