Things I liked:Nice stock,good bluing,open sight are fine,& the best part --this thing is very accurate,I was very impressed with this Stoeger .22. I later added a scope when I found out how accurate this rifle is ! I have owned many firearms over the years & just didn't expect much from a air rifle ! I have a rodent problem & it seems every time people hear a gun shot they think the worse so that's how I came to try an air rifle. This rifle changed my mind fast,it will do every thing I want with out the noise---sounds like a nail gun sort of! mine got pretty quiet after say 200 shots, Have made some shots already that are surprising to me! Thought it was kind of expensive at first but after shooting it awhile & seeing what it can do---worth every dime to me---a solid purchase,a good air rifle---a whole new way to shoot for me,I don't think the noise level should bother anyone !
Things I would have changed:Like all the other reviews state--not a not not a great trigger --might perform some work on it, its gotten a little better after about 1500 shots but still a weird trigger !
What others should know:Shoots all the ammo I have tried very well, quickly found round nose pellets shoot very well. H&N & Crosman & Benjamin,all shoot well in my rifle,truth is the Crosman 14.3gr. hollow & round nose shoot as good as anything Ive tried .
Things I liked:Nice wood stock,bluing is good,I really liked the open sights a lot !The thing I like the most is ---this thing shoots,has got some punch,have the .22 model & am completely happy with the rifle .Not as quiet as I had hoped but it does settle down after a little break in---not the kind of sound that will alarm people----sounds a little like a nail gun to me,certainly not a loud report, in my opinion !It's even more accurate than I had hoped & I'm sure it will end my rodent problems without the cops showing up!I will add a scope because I really didn't think it would be so accurate & have the range it does !
Things I would have changed:Not much,gun is a solid purchase,I'm a pretty picky guy & I'm really pleased with this Stoeger .22 breakbarrel rifle !Like everyone else,I would change the trigger--it's just not up to the rest of the gun for quality!
What others should know: Well, even though I knew the size & weight of rifle ,when I opened boX I was surprised at the size of the thing---feels & looks like a hunting rifle,not a toy !Suggest cleaning the barrel & take out of stock & lube & tighten everything ! Mine came with the rear sight bent over from bad handling, the box had a smash in through outer wrapping & styrofoam that holds the rifle in place was all shattered !---Was able to remove sight & bend back & refinish to perfect--thanks Fedx! Suggest check your item a soon as it arrives,they are packed really good at Pyramydair but there are a lot of people out there that just don't care how they handle your package!
Things I liked:The X20 shoots very strong.
Things I would have changed:The open sights are rather cheap.
What others should know:For me the Stoeger X20 is an upgrade for me from an old Crosman 760 that I bought in 1970. I'm amazed how powerful this air gun is.
