Things I liked:Well, I have to say that the stock is MUCH finer than the illustration might suggest. Pretty piece of birch, I think, with a lot of figure in it. I kinda disagree with other writers who have complained about the included Ruger (TM)-branded scope. IMHO the scope is quite adequate for the plinking I've been doing and capable of giving me 1" groups at 50' out of the box. I expect that to improve as the gun breaks in, beds and settles down. The machining that I can see without removing the stock appears good, the trigger first stage is long, second stage short and heavy but not unduly so. I really like the solid rubber butt pad, which gives a good firm grip on floor or foot for cocking, and which snugs well to shoulder for the shot.
Things I would have changed:For the money, there really isn't much to be changed. Better scope mounts (I've ordered Leapers) would be nice, as would checkering on the fore-stock and grip area but again, those'd just add to the price. As I've said, I think that the scope is adequate. Time will tell whether it will hold up, and I think the replacement mounts will help. Out-of-the box the barrel seal or o-ring sits below the face of the breech and I've ordered replacement seals and shims to take care of that. Again, I think that sufficient quality control to screen out this problem would have added to the price.
What others should know:You will want to check your breech-receiver seal for depth. Mine sat low out of the box. The scope mounts really are (as so many have noted) rather crude. It's possible that they are adequate but I just don't like their looks and am going with the Leapers mounts. This is a fairly heavy gun - helpful with the massive air rifle recoil and rebound - not something comfortable for hauling around in the woods of a morning. Wish there were fittings for a sling. Have to look into that.
Things I liked:I own several Air Guns for various purposes but I was looking for a cheap springer to keep in the garage for the occasional rabbit that decides to munch my garden. The Air Hawk definitely fit this requirement. It was not very expensive. It also was very accurate and had a really nice trigger. In the past I’ve used very inexpensive multi-pump guns like the Crosman 2100 and the Daisy 880, but at this price it was a much better gun for my purpose. One cock on the break barrel was much less noise than 8-10 pumps of a Crosman 2100! I wanted this to be a gun without a scope and it did an admirable job with the iron sights. I can pick off 12 oz cans at 25 yards with ease. I like the safety. It is automatic but you can turn it off and turn It back on without having to re-cock the gun. This works better (in my opinion) than the RWS safety design.
Things I would have changed:The scope mounts are grooves cut into the barrel. I would have preferred a real mount like the RWS guns have. Everything else seems reasonable for a $100 gun. While I am not in the market for a .22 caliber gun, it would be nice to have this as an option for the Air Hawk.
What others should know:This gun can give you quarter size groups at 25 yards with the open sights. . I usually take empty soda cans and fill them with water to use for plinking. This gun will blow out the back of the cans and leave rips about 4 inches long. I typically use Crosman Wadcutters, Pointed Hunter, and Destroyer pellets in this gun. They are very inexpensive and perform extremely well.
Things I liked:Wood stock, open sights, power, accuracy
Things I would have changed:I would like to see this gun offered without the scope.
What others should know:As others have pointed out the included 4 x 32 scope isn't the greatest. I had to return the first Air Hawk Pyrmayd Air shipped me due to issues with the included scope. Both rifles shot very well with open sights, .75" or better at 10m. I ordered a UTG 3-9x32AO Bug Buster and mounted it on the second rifle with UTG 1" Max Strength Low Quick-Detach Rings on a UTG 11mm dovetail to Weaver/Picatinny scope rail. Chrony test: Crosman SSP (4.00 gr) Average Velocity 1463 fps wouldn't group, H&N Field Target Trophy Green (5.56 gr) Average Velocity 1182 fps, .86" group @ 25 yds, H&N Field Target Trophy (8.64 gr) Average Velocity 929 fps, .91" @ 25 yds, Crosman Premier (7.90 gr) Average Velocity 989 fps, .61" @ 25 yds. Cocking was very stiff when new but is easing up with use. Trigger out of the box is very nice going to leave it for now since I still have less then 500 pellets through the gun.
