Things I liked: It's light, very accurate, easy to handle, easy to get a good spot weld, really nice looking, auto safety is easy to use.
Things I would have changed: Not much, everything works great.
What others should know: I'm not sure of why there is so much complaining about the CO2 loading process. Reading the manual should take care of any issues. I did purchase an after-market CO2 cap, but it was money wasted. I never used it. The stock cap works fine. I did buy some poly O rings and have about 500 rounds through the rifle so far. The rings swell just a bit. I change cartridges at 55-60 shots and don't have to rapid shoot to let off excess air. The cap does that for me. By the time I get another pair of cartridges oiled up and rough count some pellets, the cap comes off easily. No drama whatsoever. A drop of oil on the ring, and I start shooting again. I really like this rifle and highly recommend it and Pyramyd. Great stuff.
Things I liked: I have enjoyed this air rifle more than any other I have owned! It is very well manufactured. I am shooting dime sized groups at 25 yards with Crossman Premiere from Walmart. The silencer works!!! It is very backyard friendly in a neighborhood. I'm getting about 8 ft/lbs of energy. Biologist Ted of Ted's Holdover says you need a minimum of 4 ft/lbs on the dime sized kill zone for birds and small game. This gun has double that. I have a hunting license and have only taken legal game with this gun in my backyard, and without exception, everything I've dispatched with this gun died instantly and humanely. I did upgrade the scope to an Accushot SWAT 3-12X44. Together it is an outstanding combo. I have a tricked out Ruger 10/22 and this air rifle is as pleasing to shoot as my Ruger. And I don't need to go to the farm to shoot it.
Things I would have changed: The stock is a tad short for a 6'2" adult's arm length, but not worth adding an extension. Another baffle in the can would be nice. It's very quiet, but it could be quieter. I had no problems with the provided chamber plug, but I thought it kind of fiddly and just ordered an aftermarket solid plug. It's quick and easy to shoot the gun down when it gets low.
What others should know: A lot of folks have a hard time understanding how to use the chamber cap with its degassing valve. I didn't, but I did buy the solid, aftermarket plug for simplicity, and extra o rings. When you degass the gun and remove the plug, you will see that the o ring will have expanded. You can wait for it to shrink back down so that you can reload co2, or if you buy extra o rings as I have, you can just swap it out with an already shrunk one and keep shooting. If you want to plink, shoot targets, and shoot small game at distances within 30 yards...get this gun, upgrade the scope, get the aftermarket plug and some extra o rings, and start buying bulk boxed of co2 powerlets because if you are like me and love to shoot, you are going to find yourself shooting this gun a lot. I am very pleased with it!
Things I liked: This is a fantastic deal and a very impressive gun. Of remarkable note are the four K baffles used in the suppressor, it's the only air gun doing this if I am correct, they do work, the report is akin to a 400 fps CO2 air pistol like the C11. Fit and finish is excellent, nothing looks cheap on this gun. It's an unbelievable deal at the listed price and more so if you can use one of the discount offers, plus it qualifies for free shipping. It's feels like a gun that can compete with the top priced guns on quality. As for power it drilled a brown box Crosman Premier across the chrono at 699 fps punching through one and 3/4 bars of my still in the plastic wrap Neutrogena soap bars. Sacrificing one of my rare out of production vintage 8.4 gr. Silver Jets the chrono recorded 647 fps. All the issues with loading the CO2 I read about escapes me, it couldn't be simpler or easier, it's totally trouble free. I am so liking this gun. It's accuracy is beyond belief and it just feels ergonomic.
Things I would have changed: I would just love it if some skilled master or hobby machinist invented an easy way to turn it into a repeater, but actually slow fire is the best way to use CO2, still it would be nice to have the repeating option. I find the bolt easy to cock and the automatic safety is no hinderance at all and designed for a natural no wasted movement of the trigger finger to disengage. My some what barrel shaped Silver Jet pellet fell naturally into the loading tray but the Premiers took some minor fidgeting half the time to make sure they went in nose first. Loading pellets is probably the only real place you might encounter issues. If you tilt the barrel down the bolt slides forward getting in the way of the loading trough and if you tilt the barrel up I can see a real danger of dropping a pellet through some large openings all the way down into the trigger mechanism area. You will want to hold the gun horizontal for loading pellets. I'll look for a fix on closing those large openings someday.
What others should know: I am not a scope guy per se but I see nothing wrong with the included scope, it looks like it would provide good service for the short distances that guns in this power range have. Since I often shoot in dim light I opted to install the 123a powered Crosman laser all the way back on the action using a low profile Hawke adapter. Back there it is an easy turn on and off with the thumb of my trigger hand. This is one of those guns that just keeps me looking for more and more reasons to shoot it. I would like to see 2, 3 or 4 more K baffles added to the stack to bring it down to a whisper where the trigger is the loudest thing heard. As it is you just have to shoot it to believe it has this much power. It's pretty obvious the O ring likes to get all swollen up and needing a good half hour before reinstalling so I bought a package of recommended replacements and will just slip off the swollen one and put on a fresh one while it shrinks back up if I want to continue shooting without delay.
How many shots ( accurately ) dose this gun get per fill /replacement of the Co2?
Agree. . . .50-60
50 to 60.
Understand there MAY be need to replace the O-ring on the "silencer/muzzle supressor" often -- what is that size ?
I have had this rifle for a year. I shoot it fairly often as it's my favorite CO2 rifle. I have had no problem with this particular O-ring as of yet and everyhting is shooting great.
If memory serves me correctly, wasn't Ruger going to sell an air rifle that was very similar to this? Can't remember what it was called.
they have nothing available in a CO2 model yet
