Things I liked:Well there's nothing to like, mine arrived from pyramid completely jammed and uncockable, never had an air rifle arrive in this condition, does not bode well for this company in my opinion. I wanted to like this gun based on the silencing technology and high fps, which is mainly why I bought it.
Things I would have changed:Everything, I guess it's all as well I found out about the poor quality control on the part of Stoeger and the lack of pyramid in checking out their products before shipping them out. There was no tape on the product box so it is possible this had been returned before? Oh yeah, the gun is very heavy, especially for a synthetic stock gun, and feels front-heavy.
What others should know:I have owned over a dozen break-barrel rifles over the years. Just before this I had bought the Gamo bone collector bull-whisper but had to send it back. Vised on a table with great optics, it was shooting a random pattern 6 inches from the bullseye at 25 yds. Extremely poor. If one is looking for accuracy and value, I would steer them toward Crosman. Pyramyd Air Comment Spring piston Airguns cannot be shot from a vise they are very hold sensative. Shooting from a vise will give you very bad accuracy. GW Sales
Things I liked:Fit and finish were excellent, balance is also to my liking. The rifle shoulders well, and although not fitted with sling swivels, is not a discomfort to carry on a hunting venture. Cocking effort is smooth and easy with the supressor as a grip helping to distribute the torque along your palm. Accuracy is good, what I would call a "75 percenter", meaning with most pellets regardless of maker, and shooting starling size game, you may have 1 in 4 get away. I will add that my gun does seem to have very good accuracy with RWS Match R10 pellets. Lead free pellets I have clocked at around 1125-1150 FPS, which is close to what the maker claims for allow pellets. Trigger is average for guns of this price point, and can be upgraded with an aftermarket trigger with little issue. The auto safety is a plus, and withing easy reach of your trigger hand's thumb to deactivate. A fun gun as a plinker or small game hunter.
Things I would have changed:The scope that comes with the rifle is okay, but will not allow the most accuracy to be gotten out of the gun. definitely an upgrade item. Trigger could be better out of the box, but it is consistent, and that helps offset the weight of pull. The auto safety is a bit stiff to disengage.
What others should know:Clean the barrel when you first get it, go out and shoot a tin of cheap pellets, then get a decent scope, perhaps an aftermarket trigger, or if you are inclined, LIGHTLY polish the engagement areas of the trigger group and the safety lever surfaces. This will smooth the safety action for disengagement, and the trigger will have a bit less "grit". This is a quiet gun, though it may seem "twangy" by your ear close by, at the muzzle end, it is quiet enough for back yard fun! Try RWS pellets first, and even crosman SSPs can do well accuracy wise if you don't mind the sonic crack they give. For a young adult, this would make a great first air rifle! I gave the accuracy four stars just because I have yet to find a really nice hunting type pellet for this gun, but I have other styles to try and believe that I will find a better one for this gun. The gun does like target style pellets and even alloy ones, and these can still be used on small pests such as starlings or squirrels in close.
Things I liked:I liked the weight and length. Its quiet after the first 20 shots.
Things I would have changed:It came defective and could not break it. The scope mount/rails/scope system is ill designed and it sits to far ahead and you cannot move it back. The back ring has a stop that sits on a depression on the action, and you cannot move it further back.
What others should know:Pyramyd service was average, they started an offer two days after I bough it and would not match it. They also said adding wd40 to make it break would void the warranty. The trigger is the old gamo trigger (metal) or crosman (b19). So it is awful but there are lots of tutorials on how to make it better, but pyramyd would say it voids the warranty. I got is in the understand that it was a crosman/gamo level rifle, and is around that but could have been better with just a little thought.
