Things I liked: Very powerful rifle and accurate also light enough to carry around. Good handling and stock design.

Things I would have changed: The trigger is way too hard to pull, and is difficult to adjust and it does not adjust enough to make any real difference. I would also make the rear cap sturdier it will pop off from time to time. It has a powerful kick with the spring I would recommend replacing the spring with the gas system. The scope will eventually creep back on the rear mount it needs a more sturdy scope mount. 1) Better trigger pull adjustment 2) Replace spring plunger with Gas system 3) More sturdy rear barrel plastic cap (should be screwed in not a clip) 4) Better more robust scope mount

What others should know: You can see test shots with my Gamo that I use for our WWII Tank game on YouTube just search “mrdstony” videos. Overall a good rifle and a powerful one, however it is not the 1200 ft/sec or 1000 ft/sec. that the advertising says, I guess a little puffing is in there. Our chronometer with the PBA ammunition is 1110 ft/ sec and lead ammunition is 930 ft/sec. and that is in perfect outdoor conditions.
