Things I liked: Sometime in recent past I wrote a review about my Browning Leverage Air Rifle and said that was the only Spring air gun I still own after I started shooting PCP air guns. That is not correct. I still have my Tech Force TF99 Premier air rifle and that I bought sometime in the same period after acquiring my Browning. I never wrote a review about this gun and frankly I don't know why not or what made me forget to do it as I like to read other user's reviews and for the same token like to share my experiences. My gun is in .177 cal and I do like it very much. This is a very accurate gun and though my preference goes toward the PCP air guns I recently purchased another under lever; - a Hatsan Torpedo 100X Air Rifle, Walnut - in due place I shall review it, but here I'm talking about my Tech Force TF99. I read a few reviews where people were saying terrible things about this gun but I like mine very much. Yes it's made in China, but what is it not these days? The gun looks very good with a Cherry color on the stock and is very accurate. I agree that it has very strong recoil and its heavy, and being an under lever is very problematic to add a sling to it but is still an amazing gun. I installed a Leapers UTG 30mm SWAT 3-12x44 AO Rifle Scope and its accuracy is close to perfection although I must check the screws rings after each time I shoot it for about an hour. The recoil makes the screws go loose. The gun is a drooper so I installed a UTG Drooper Scope Rail, 11mm-to-Weaver Adapter, that not only compensated the dropping as it made the scope better attached to the gun.
Things I would have changed: If it was possible to lower the weight of the gun it would be a much better tool to take into the woods or even to walk with it to the range.
What others should know: This one is not a gun for a beginner. Artillery hold is a must and it will probably be a drooper so take that into consideration if you are to install a scope. Like me you will probably need a drooper scope rail and very good quality rings. Don't forget to check the ring screws after shooting for a while if you see your accuracy going down.
Things I liked: Pyramyd Air sent my TF99 in Jan. 2013 A refurbished gun that was so clean and polished that I will always consider buying a another refurbished model. For me the gun is only for shooting at rest with a bag. Yes it's that heavy, but oh so accurate.
Things I would have changed: For price/nothing
Things I liked: My first air rifle after nearly 10 years since I last handled an air gun. Great price and quality. Reminds me of my first Remington. Looks and performs as new.
Things I would have changed: Stock wood weight
What others should know: Great product, sights on the muzzle are excellent. I don't think a scope is required. Nice diamond cut grips on trigger guard and forestock makes it feel like a expensive rifle.
