Things I liked: What can I say, I gave it to my 14 year old daughter and she thinks it's great. As long as it knocks down cans and plastic bottles she's happy.
Things I would have changed: Brand new; remove the blowback, it causes loss of velocity and the pellets get loose inside the plastic magazine, so much so that they may sometimes fall right out when it's removed. I bought 4 types of Gamo Ammo; Magnum, Master Point, Hunter, and Match and didn't notice much difference. The fps 450, If Gamo could prove that to me I'd be happy to trade the gun I have for the one they use. I'd be very surprised if it was 350 fps. Maybe they could remove the blow back and lenghten the barrel to increase fps and accuracy. Also the magazine release could have a stronger spring. If you happen to just touch it accidently the magazine pops out. But hey, my daughter doesn't mind that either as long as it pops right back in.
What others should know: I would not recommend it for an adult to use as target practice beyond 20 or 25 ft.
Things I liked: Bought an RWS 48 about a year ago here and do not recommend buying one, It's an way over priced piece of junk!!! The poor grade of aluminum Cocking Arm breaks almost every time it's used, cheap aluminum threaded ends breaks right off inside. If that's isn't bad enough The lever cracks where the pin holding the cocking rod is. Piece of junk!!! I have replaced the arm 3 times and the lever once and it's cracked again. I have yet to get thru a single can of premier 500 pellets. More than a dollar a pop. I can buy Savagehigh powered rifle and 200 rounds cheaper
Things I would have changed: First I would ask for my money back. Then I would suggest that for this kind of money the parts could be made of Cold Rolled Steel or anything. Yes that would add a few more ounces of weight.
What others should know: I read so many other great reviews and wonder who wrote them?
