Things I liked: This is without doubt one of the greatest values in air pistols today. Accurate, sturdy, easy to work on and mod. I mean, you have to make this gun miss on purpose. Sure, out of the box she's a bit rough, but a diamond in the rough. I have replaced the trigger spring with a lighter one, which improved the action a lot. I think I can get it even better in time. I put a 10" barrel on it. No way to gauge any gain in velocity as I don't own a chrony, but it sure looks and feels great. Added a steel breech and mounted a Leapers UTG red dot scope. The next thing to be replaced is the horrible grips. I have some walnut target grips from Gmac on the way. Crosman, really, you have to offer better grips than those black plastic atrocities. So, to wrap this up, my praises for this gun could go on and on. Bottom line is it is one fun gun to shoot, economical with CO2, fun to work on, and did I mention deadly uncannily accurate?
Things I would have changed: Trigger spring and grips.
What others should know: BUY ONE! NOW! Then buy another to mod. There are a ton of aftermarket upgrades for this gun. I have heard it said that this pistol is the Ruger 10/22 of airguns. So have fun!
Things I liked: Clear scope. Too bad the rest is junk!
Things I would have changed: I wish I could go back and buy something else.
What others should know: Piece of junk! Zoom jammed after only a few hundred rounds.
