Things I liked: I bought this gun about 15 years ago. It is my first quality airgun and have no regrets at all. I have the .177 cal. At the time, I thought it cost a fortune for an air rifle, but the way it shoots make it worth every cent. It seems to like every type of pellet I've fed it. It shoots an inch at 50 yards with iron sites. (more me than the gun) I have about 5000 rnds thru it without a hitch. I just bought a Chrony to really check out this rifle and my firearm reloads. The iron sites are excellent considering many firearms. This thing takes crows at 40 to 50 yards and drops them like a bag of rocks. I'm looking at adding another RWS today.

Things I would have changed: The downside for me, so far is scope mounting. I have yet to find the right scope and mount for this rifle. I'm sure the equipment exists, I just haven't found it. I can't get the scope to stay put long enough to site it in. I put an inexpensive 'airgun' BSA scope on it and that lasted about 20 rnds. None of the rnds hit within 5"s of the other. The eye relief bounced back and forth wildly, that's how I knew it was the scope/mount combo more than anything else. I have a .300 Win Mag that has no problem at all. My search for the right scope/mount combo continues so I can unleash the real potential of this rifle.

What others should know: Find the right scope/mount for this gun. I'm sure it will shoot M.O.A. Save the money if that's an issue, but buy this gun, you won't regret it.
