Things I liked:Quality, craftsmanship - it's true what they say about Germane engineering! The power is plentiful, and more than enough for squirrels and rabbits (and all birds, of course). Mine (a .22) HATES the 14.3 Crosman pellets. Once I switched to JSB Diablo 15.9, it became a lot more fun (but I haven't even tried any other pellets).
Things I would have changed:Can you make a high quality, heavy rifle out of unobtanium? It's heavy, but that comes with Quality. I don't love the scope, but it works well enough up to 65-ish yards.
What others should know:DON'T BUY 14.3 Crosman pellets for this rifle. I was getting frustrated siting in the scope, and started to blame the scope. Then, I ordered some JSBs, and I was able to get it zeroed in no time. Once I had it zeroed, I tried some of the 14.3s again. They were flying all over the place. Then, back to the JSB's and all was right with the world again.
Things I liked:It hammers them downrange,and the open sights are good...but thats about the only things i can brag on about this one. I will give the benifit of the doubt and say most of the issues i had with this may have been solved if I had opted for the NitroPiston-but this rifle was badd. Thankfully,PA was AWESOME in addressing the situation and had me set up with another combo in record time with NO hassle whatsoever.
Things I would have changed:Everything,but most of all,the scope mounts!!That thing would walk ALL over.Of course, with the hammering this thing produced it wasnt surprising.Even during break in, was reasonably tight with open sights-but with the scope,you'd zero,get 2-3 decent shots,then have to rezero.Loud,bulky,and even someone like me who shoots regularly for long stretches,a beast to cock.
What others should know:Only negative review i've had to post, and like i said, may be a different ballgame with NP. And on the bright side,PA turned it around in record breaking time(LOVE my Benj Trail NP AW .22 !!)
Things I liked:This is a beast that will definatly put it downrange when doing pest control around the place(but then,so would the log it feels like you're toting around)...the open sights were dead on out of the box.
Things I would have changed:Way too heavy to field lug all day, cocking was a chore, the trigger pull was so long you could go get a sandwich before it broke, but the absolute worse was the scope-zero in/fire three shots/realize scope was walking/reset and zero back in/enjoy three shots/realize scope is walkong again...after way too much of this,i sent back to exchange-Folks at PA were GREAT! Got me set up in record time!
What others should know:If you're dead set on this one, go .22 with NP and start looking around for some magic scope mounts. If you're only shooting open sights,this might be an option,but there are plenty other rifles that are a better choice.
