Things I liked: nice stock I like the checkering it seems well made,it is very powerful for a Chinese gun it appears nicely made
Things I would have changed: the trigger is really the only drawback so far it is heavy and rough the trigger is the only reason for 4 star overall rating
What others should know: I received my Winchester 1028 today from pyramid for 120.00 and made in china it appears well made looks nice. it is a wide gun and heavy. the cocking effort is high I haven't measured it yet I have 2 herniated discs in my back I had to have my son who is 17 cock and load the rifle for me he struggled to cock the gun I am hoping the neurosurgeon can repair me to the point I can use this gun, I may have purchased to much gun lol. this gun has a ton of recoil, and is very loud compared to my Sheridan silver streak which is .20 we are shooting at an old license plate from back when they were made thicker it almost went through at about 15yrds it put a significantly deeper dent than my .20 Sheridan. as I read in all the reviews before I bought the gun the trigger is not that good it feels rough and is heavy, this may improve after its broke in I would think it would at least get a little better. I am hoping to be able to do a full review after its broke in depends on my back. my first impression is this is a lot of gun for the money, its heavy, and wide it is very powerful,and loud definitely not for children. there is no doubt this gun would drop a squirrel, and possibly a rabbit with a well placed shot. I think its a lot of gun for the money. if 120.00 is around your price range its defiantly worth considering. the gun is made by daisy.
Things I liked: I bought the Winchester 1000 .177 used. It has a walnut stock. It is supperb quality.e fit and finish is far supperior to anything in this price range. omme of the specifications that Pyramyd Air post are not correct. Such as weight.Think of this as a Beemman R1 in weight, length and therefore overall size.It is big and not for the young. It is hard to cock for this 84 year old. It is a killer air rifle. Do not even hesitate. Buy it.
Things I would have changed: Nothing. Sure the trigger is not a HW Rekord trigger. But it is far better than most
What others should know: If you are looking for a powerful quality air rifle at a throw aa price.You have found it. Even if you have a closet full of air guns.
Things I liked: Good power, nice 4X32AO scope that once dialed in has held its place very well. The rifle has a good weight and feel for an adult and the details like the checkering on the stock and beautiful finish are first rate. This rifle is a real buy at its low price point. It also makes a good small game rifle. I have used it to squirrel hunt and it is plenty capable of a good humane quick kill shot using a domed or hollow point 8g pellet with proper shot placement.(Check hunting regulations for your area as they may be different then in mine.)
Things I would have changed: I probably wouldn't and have not changed a thing, but I will say that this gun would probably be on the heavy side for a younger shooter. I would suppose the trigger could stand to have a bit lighter pull for a younger shooter, but as a large adult I don't find it all that bad, but I can see where maybe a smaller fellow might find the trigger a bit on the heavy side.
What others should know: I have shot several different brands of pellets through this and mine seems to really like the RWS Super Dome pellets the best. It is also a bit longer then many other break barrel air rifles...so make sure you either own or buy a case that is long enough. With proper care and maintenance this rifle should really hold up well over time.
