Things I liked: I like the looks and feel of this rifle. Its light weight and well balanced. The raised ambedextrious cheek peice is a plus because im left handed. The accuracy of this rifle is awsome, using Beemank Kodiaks i rip single ragged holes in the bull all day long. I replaced the factory Walther scope with a Leapers but the Walther found a good home on my sons Daisy 1000s springer and sights quite nicely. This rifle has easily become one of my favorites.

Things I would have changed: As many other have noted, the Co2 cover does have some issues so be careful when picking this rifle up. I would like to see an adapter for this rifle as you see on paintball guns, the airsource bottles get expensive when you shoot as much as i do. I would also like to see a more solid stock feel as its hollow and dull feeling.

What others should know: This is an avian hunter/ target gun for the most part, although it will dispatch a squirrel with a good head shot. Heavier pellets will give you the best accuracy out of this rifle, i prefer Beeman Kodiaks as you can stack the pellets end to end on a target. The Kodiak pellet is 10.6 grains, your average .177 pellet is about 8 so dont worry about it being too heavy! When hunting game, be sure you are taking head shots on anything larger than small birds. Squirrel and larger birds will require head shots as you require more kenetic energy to HUMANELY dispatch them, this is also where the Kodiaks come in handy! Keep your shots within 25 yards when hunting as beyond that distance your KE drops dramtically with this gun. DO NOT FORGET TO BUY PELLGUNOIL. Be safe and have fun!
