Things I liked:Extremely good value for the price. Shooting good groups after only about 50 shots.
Things I would have changed:Rear sight notch could be just a tad wider for us shooters with older eyes, but still acceptable.
What others should know:Other reviewers have suggested using a dremel tool on the breech; however, I wouldn't bother - just find something to push the pellet in about 1/8". I use a piece of scrap plastic from a model car kit. My friend uses an Allen wrench. This seats the pellet perfectly and will give you the correct back pressure. Penetration: Using a piece of 1/4" plywood and Gamo Master Point pellets the X5 is about equal to my Crosman American Classic pistol and my Crosman 760 rifle (with each at 10 pumps) or my Crosman 1077 rifle with a fresh CO2 cartridge. Not bad at all for a break-barrel rifle that cocks this easily.
Things I liked:Great for kids to load and cock. Pretty accurate at 25-30 yards with fiber optic sights. Very light to handle and the quality, for what you pay, is pretty good.
Things I would have changed:Normally, you get what you pay for but this little gun beats the pump guns anyday in quality and accuracy. Very easy to use and kids will enjoy this rifle for years to come.
What others should know:I like how the front sights plastic housing goes down the barrel more than others. Makes it easier to cock and you don't get your dirty, oily, etc. hands all over the barrel. This design may end up making the sights sturdier (?) than other manufacturers. The safety button is enlarged compared to other guns which makes it user friendly IMHO.
Things I liked:It feels and looks like a much more expensive rifle than it is. I like the safety. The gun is easy to cock. It is well balanced. So far I am using the open sights and they work well. It is accurate out of the box. So far I have shot about 200 rounds indoors. It does not seem to be loud. It has plenty of power for target shooting.
Things I would have changed:I can't think of anything I would change except maybe a .22 version.
What others should know:In my opinion this gun could be used for young shooters to older ones because of the light cocking but still plenty of power. It is a very good value. I enjoy shooting this one as well or more than some of my more expensive guns.
