Things I liked: This rifle is only my second pcp, but I've been amazed by everything about it. While the other reveiw found the gun to light for accuracy work the 10 starlings I shot offhand and 15 from a rest would probably disagree. The worst group I have shot with it was 1-1/4 inch with cphp the best was 1/4 inch with jsb 15.9 10 shots at 40 yards. I have only fired the gun as a repeater it might shoot tigher as a single shot, but i bought it for hunting pest in my backyard and at times my backyard is a target rich enviroment. The trigger on my rifle has no creep and is absolutely perfect. The repeating mechanism works flawlessly though crossman pellets are hard to chamber. Extremely easy and quick to fill with a hand pump. The s200 is very short but it does not give you the broom handle feel many shortys do. The rifle does have snappy report and may not be backyard friendly in your backyard, though it is not as loud as my disco. All in all you can not go wrong with the s200!!!

Things I would have changed: For the price the scope mounts should have been high enough to clear the repeating mechanism, I had a different scope and rings to mount or this would have been a issue. I know speed sells but they really need to advertise the actual velocity. My rifle is running 100 fps slower than published specs with air arms 13.4 gr pellets. I still would have purchased the gun regardless of power. I ordered the gun when the gauged model was being advertised I recieved a non-gauged model.

What others should know: The non-gauge model comes with a fill probe you will not need to remove the tank and fill from the rear, though you still can. You don't need to purchase any filling adapters with the model now being advertised. My gun seems to prefer 15.9 gr jsb but it likes aa falcons as well. If you need power this is not the gun for you!!! But for pesting and squirels its great.
