Things I liked:i put a 3x9x50mm leapers tactical scope and a rws 1 piece mount on this rifle. this is absolutely the finest air rifle i have owned. i also own 2 rws 34s. so the sights it came with are removed. i will end up with a suppressor on it to give me an easier cocking motion. the trigger surpasses any i have on any of my rifles. BUY IT!!!
Things I would have changed:i would sell this weapon with the rws 1 piece mount and the leapers scope as a kit in either .177 0r .022. get rid of the cheaper and less effective glowing sights. put a pin on the front and a good metal rear sight on this rifle.
What others should know:its easy to cock. the pellet speed doesnt break the sound barrier, so, its pretty quiet to shoot. i bought mine USED.....you couldnt tell it had ever been touched. i got a good description of it from pyramid. it is a good idea to talk to a customer service rep live before you buy. also, ask them thier reccommendation for ammo. this is not a magnum rifle, you got to get the right ammo!!! i love the trigger!!! go buy one, you wont want anythig else...ever!
Things I liked: The mechanical operations,ie cocking,trigger action,safety engage and disengage all sound and feel like you are operating a precise and superbly engineered air rifle.It is very accurate (not too hold sensitive). It is light enough to shoot off hand and the cocking effort is reasonable.I don't think the 18 lbs listed as the cocking effort is correct though.Honestly it feels more like 25lbs.Still it is a gun that will not wear you out to carry in the field and shoot without a rest.
Things I would have changed:Checkering would be nice.That would raise the cost though. The safety cannot be reengaged once it has been disengaged.The gun must be shot to be safe again.The bottom of the recoil pad has a tendancy to catch my shirt.Seems like the pad should be radiused at the bottom.I will correct this on mine.I added a Beeman compesator to it to add leverage cocking and I like the look. The compensator is factory bored 9/16".To use it I had to file the ridges down that are on the barrel to mount the front sight.Then the compensator needs to be bored out to 19/32" to fit the barrel. Tap it on with a rubber a mallet.Looks good and makes cocking easier.
What others should know:I put a compact Bug Buster fixed 4X32 AO scope on mine and it is a joy to shoot.I like to shoot paper off hand and this is the ticket.I like this rifle so much I am thinking about a custom stock for it. This is a very nice air rifle.You will never regret buying it. In .22 cal. this rifle will work fine on squirrels and rabbits out to 20 yds. Unless you have a specific need forget the magnums.They are too heavy,too hard to cock,too loud.Not really a lot of fun to shoot
Things I liked:Pleasure to shoot, quite and accurate. Varied pellets by design and weight. Extremely high quality air rifle. Purchased it in 1980 - still shooting it today. Speaks for its construction and reliable it is. Wish I would have purchased a scope for it.
What others should know:Keep it clean, tighten up the screws on the trigger guard every now and then; shoot way.
