Things I liked: Light, carbine length allows for great maneuverability, incredible trigger, side lever cocking is very smooth, and superb accuracy.

Things I would have changed: I suppose the safety could be redesigned since the trigger on this gun is so light, I'm always very careful when engaging the safety. The one thing I do mind is the air fitting, I find it awkward when connecting to my pump because I have to twist my hose around so that I can slide it on. I intend to install a foster fitting at some point.

What others should know: I've had this rifle for approximately four months now and it's been a real pleasure to shoot. I find it easy to grab this rifle by the forestock with just my one hand. I was skeptical about the side lever cocking, but I actually prefer it now. I also really like the trigger on this rifle, it's a lot better than the one on my .25 Marauder. I'm very impressed by how accurate this rifle is, and that's saying something given that I already have a Marauder. I have managed 1/4 to 1/3 groups at 40 yards with this rifle. In practice, this rifle is much more accurate than my Marauder simply because shooting offhand is so much easier, the Marauder is too heavy in my opinion. If you're going to buy this rifle, I recommend you use 18.1 JSB pellets with it, these are the best by far. I tested several pellets including all four .22 jsb pellets.
