Things I liked: This is a great gun for a great price (got it on sale a couple weeks ago). I only wish I'd bought this before I bought my RWS 34P Striker - could have saved myself over $200. This is much shorter and lighter, but comparable in power, accuracy, and build quality. Much easier to lug around than the 34. The red dot sight is very nice. The adjustable stock/buttpad is also a nice feature, but anything past the first stop seems awkward.

Things I would have changed: Add some open sights (fiber optic or peep) in case you want to remove the red dot. The carry handle is not really functional with the red dot attached. Also add flip-up covers to the red dot so they don't get lost. The Weaver rails on the forearm are right where you hold the gun. If you mount a flashlight and/or a laser, it may be tough to grip it comfortably. Put a laser on and had to shift it to the left side and as close to the muzzle as I could get it.

What others should know: The easiest way to cock this rifle is to slap the muzzlebrake as shown in the video review on the website. Otherwise the short lever makes it difficult. It's also hard to find a case for this with the red dot attached. It won't fit in the Plano scoped case for my 34P.
