Things I liked:Well built, well fitted and beautiful workmanship. After several hundred various pellets, she is starting to give dime size groups at 15 meters and quarter size groups at 25 yards off a rest.
Things I would have changed:Nothing, she is fine just like she is.
What others should know:She does not like to be held; however, she responds well to a light touch on non restraining rest. Pyramyd Air also responded very well.
Things I liked:I am very pleased with my HW 50S. I use it primarily for shooting in my garage at 10 meters. The open sights are nice and offer several options for the rear notch width and the front post. The fit and finish on the rifle are excellent. The Rekord trigger is very nice and will only get better as it breaks in.
Things I would have changed:Not much. Initially, there is a little bit of creep in the second stage, but the break is clean and crisp. I am confident it will smooth out, or I will get a bit of lube in there if it bothers me in the future.
What others should know:This is a great airgun that will work in many situations. It may not have Magnum velocity and energy, but it does not have a lot of hold sensitivity either. It is a proven design that I expect to last many years.
Things I liked:Clean barrel out of the box, nice. The open sights were already dead on for 10 meters, right out of the box! The trigger is delightful and needs no adjustment for me, long, smooth, very light 1st stage followed by a distinct, short, crisp, light 2nd stage. Immaculate woodwork and metalwork/bluing. No vibration or twang, merely a single, quick thump with each shot. Superb bench supported off hand accuracy at 10 meters with a loose hold. I have not yet chronied it as I feel that any springer with fewer than 500 shots will not tell you anything meaningful. Also, I am a LEFTY, and the stock and wrist are completely ambidextrous. The buttstock has identical, shallow cheek pieces on both sides! This rifle oozes quality.
Things I would have changed:It's a bit loud for its power range, although I'm primarily a basement shooter, so that is OK with me. I will have to wear hearing protection with this one.
What others should know:Crosman Premier Lights are a slightly tight fit and require the use of a seating tool, although the rifle groups exceptionally well with them. At FIRST the cocking was slightly gritty and probably about 31 to 33 lbs., but after just 10 shots I could feel it start to smooth out and lighten a bit. After 50 shots, I'd guess it is now about 27 lbs., and there is no grittiness at all. I could easily imagine it settling down to about 21 to 23 lbs. of cocking effort after a thousand shots. My particular rifle weighs 6.4 lbs. on my regularly calibrated digital postal scale. This must be unusually light for this model, but my experience is that one chunk of any species of wood varies a LOT in weight from others of the same species because of moisture content and density. This stock is only medium sized, but I believe a variation of up to 20 ounces is possible from rifle to rifle. It is also AMBIDEXTROUS! (See above.)
