Things I liked: Accurate, user friendly, nice trigger, quality fit and finish. I purchased this Air Venturi Bronco .177 air rifle as a, (soon to be), Christmas gift for my son in law. The plan was for him to have an accurate air rilfe at his home, (which is about a ten hour drive from me), to shoot back yard targets with my ten year old grandson. and granddaughter Well, I had to give the rifle a test fire when it arrived to be sure it worked correctly. This .177 Bronco was easy to use and grouped with all five shots touching, (with iron sights), at ten meters. I could not have asked for more. The overall fit and finish on the Bronco is high quality. The trigger is excellent. It is back in the box, awaiting some Christmas target shooting.

Things I would have changed: The supplied iron sights, though accurate, grouped about an inch and a half high at ten meters. This is with the rear sight bottomed out at its lowest setting. Since an air rife scope willl be placed on the Bronco, shooting high will be easy to rememdy with proper scope installation.

What others should know: I have read that the Air Venturi Bronco was made to replicate Beeman R-7 .177 air rifle qualities, at a more affordable price point. I have owned a Beeman R-7 for more than 20 years. The engineers at Mendoza did an excellent job with the Bronco. It is well made, accurate, user friendly, great trigger and with reasonable care, an Air Venturi Bronco should last several lifetimes. Also, a thank you for the fast shipping and good pricing from Pyramid Air.
