Things I liked:Feels like a real gun in your hand. Not too big like some others. Delivers good power for a small package. Quiet.
Things I would have changed:Rear sight. Can be difficult to zero with no reference marks.
What others should know:Mine was delivered with a bad breech seal. I was only getting 240 fps with a 11.9 pellet. Luckily, I bought some spares but they are not the same size. Too big in diameter and too thin. I reworked the new seal to fit and added an appropriate size flat washer behind the seal and now all is good. As advertised, the 22 caliber gets 350 fps with Crosman premier 14.3 pellets. Lighter pellets are a bit faster with Beeman Silver Bear 12.6 gr at 375 fps, and RWS Hobby 11.9 gr at 390 fps. This particular pistol seems to like the Beeman Silver Bear the best.
Things I liked:The Tempest is a well made and solid pistol with very little plastic used in its manufacture. It has an adjustable single-stage trigger that breaks clean. It takes some time to zero in the rear sight as there are no micrometer adjustments, but two screws which must be loosened for both windage and elevation. As everyone has mentioned, it takes some hand and wrist strength to cock - not much leverage is offered by the barrel. Other than the cocking effort, this is a fun pistol to shoot, and it's accurate enough to hit what you're aiming for, but a match pistol it's not, but then, what spring pistol pistol is, and I a number of them. I haven't found the Tempest to be hold sensitive or picky about pellets. RWS Diablo Basics will group well from 10 yds. Cool pistol, and it's small size is a plus for me.
Things I would have changed:Nothing, it's a classic.
What others should know:The trigger can only be adjusted when the pistol is cocked.
Things I liked:cool lookig gun. the hand grip is very comfortable and the ballance is perfect. has a lot of hitting force for a gun that small.
Things I would have changed:the over the top cocking is difficult although it does get smother after over a hundred shots. produces a lot of noise and some shock that loosens the sights. regular re-adjustments is necessary.
What others should know:the barrel popped up after shooting a couple of times. the locking bar isn't the greatest. check the barrel carefully, make sure it is well secured before firing.
