Things I liked: Starting out, accuracy was best only with lighter pellets, but with 150+ rounds through it, that has improved considerably with heavier. I had sighted in at 15yds; at 30 yards it's just as accurate and shoots slightly higher, so it's definitely got the power! Once you get a technique for the substantial cocking effort, loading is easy; the chamber is easy to access quickly. Out to 50yds, this rifle is a potent as a rimfire for small game, and more accurate than most shooters.

Things I would have changed: I don't like that you can't reset the safety if you don't fire; that could be changed. Otherwise, it's a fantastic air gun.

What others should know: As others have mentioned, it is hard to cock, owing primarily to the short lever. I'm 57 and not as strong as I used to be, but once you get a technique for it, it's manageable. Also it's a 9 lb. rifle, and it's difficult to attach a sling due to the under-lever, but you may be able to find one that attaches to the barrel shroud. However, the extra weight is great for steady shooting. From what I've read, it has a long break-in, and that seems to be the case for me as well. But it'll still shoot ragged holes with most pellets at 15-25yds. Also, it's quiet if you shoot indoors. It flattens pellets thinner than a dime using a steel target stop at 15yds.
