Things I liked: This pellet is the most accurate pellet. I have a .177 Crossman Raven and it loves this pellet. Believe it or not i can do 1/8" groups at 25 yards and 1/2" groups at 50 yards. I'll have some that will not group that tight all the time because i am not a machine. But the gun and pellet can do it. Don't shoot into wind though it will destabilise any pellet. Shoot with the wind or at an angle to it just not from the front. Best if you wait for wind to stop. Nevertheless awesome pellet.
Things I would have changed: nothing
What others should know: If you have a small Springer this this the pellet for you. Haven't chrony this pellet but the crossma ps do 590 avg. And my raven has and deviation of less than 5 fps. I took apart and polished the trigger. Defineately ask your dad to do this. You'll have to decompress spring to uninstall and install. Easy to do with plywood, wood screws, plumber flat metal strip with holes in it. Also you'll need a pipe clamp. With these items you can create a decompress device to let the spring pressure out of the gun to get to the trigger. To keep gun from rolling use one of the screws that goto to the forward stock to go thru the metal plumbers strap and then in the gun tube. make a hole in the pipe also to keep it from rolling. once you get it all strapped down let the pressure out is a snap.
Things I liked: This gun is awesome if you get a good one. Cant beat the price or the style. The one i got had a problem with consistency. I would have kept it and fixed but wanted to try a pcp. May go back to this gun if the pcp is to loud for the city. I would have stuck to this gun but only had it a few days when i chronied it and i was surprised to find out how bad the fps was. 901 to as low as 200. No wonder it wasn't very loud, even though it grouped well upto 25 yards with jsbs 7.3 grain pellets. Could not group at 50 yards now i know why.
Things I would have changed: check fps with chrony when you get gun and after every 200 shoots to make sure your fps is consistent.
What others should know: This gun can be tremendously accurate with it is working correctly. If your gun is not grouping well no matter what you try it must be the highly variable fps. Send it back for another or have the seals on that one fixed. And check with chrony every couple of hundred shoots.
Things I liked: First of all Wow this pistol shoots great. Great air pistol, highly recommend. Great trigger at-least 7" long barrel. Amazing power, I am impressed. Adjustable rear sights better than many center fire pistols.
Things I would have changed: Nothing
What others should know: It is more impressive in person. Has a good weight to it. I think mainly for big kids and adults. It is not hard to cock but don't think small child would like it.
