Things I liked: Power. Decent accuracy. Perfect for hunting, it's intended purpose. No loose screws, sights, picatinny rail, no problems that others claim. Reserving scope installation until after break in.

Things I would have changed: Been shooting pellet guns for 45 years, don't think I would change a thing, it is powerful and solid. Best airgun I've ever owned.

What others should know: Put down three 60lb pigs in my trap with this gun and a Kodiak Heavy pellet 21+grain, one shot behind the ear into the brain put all three down consistently with no flopping no dazing. Of course this is not it's intended purpose of small game hunting out to 50 yards maybe more on head shots. Practiced on a 1/2 inch thick solid pine surveyors stake with complete penetration at 35 yards with no misses, no scope. No supersonic crack w/heavy pellets but shooting a 14.3gr sounds like a 22 short which I will compare "very closely" with this guns velocity and power. Be warned I believe shooting light pellets will eventually damage the piston. Also be sure and store your gun with the barrel down so all the factory/cleaning/oil muck will run out of the air chamber otherwise it will eventually shelac/varnish reducing velocity. So bottom line is you want a gun with the highest velocity then feed it heavy pellets to shoot game. Get one before it's banned due to high velocity. I shopped for years and setteled on this one for power/price/quality. PyramydAir had the best price/shipping. I Considered a pneumatic but if it all hits "the fan" I want a stealth gun that doesn't rely on air or a lot of movement, just break the barrel, load and shoot.
