Things I liked: The price was good, and it works pretty good with no flimsiness, although it is what it is. It is lightweight, I like the plastic stock. Not a bad looking piece. Pump action is easy, it is nice to be able to use 4 pumps sometimes instead of always shooting max velocity (10 pumps). Pump mechanicals look like they could last a while with some care. Tried shooting a metal burning barrel with a hunting pellet at max velocity (10 pumps) from about 40 feet away, and it did leave a neat divot maybe 1/8 inch deep--not through, though. The sight worked better than I expected it to, with the rear sight set all the way down it needed no side-to-side adjustments out of the box. I think a good knock on the sight could damage it, so I am going to be careful. Of course a scope is nicer, but it is a 40 dollar rifle after all (not scopeable).

Things I would have changed: I wouldn't change anything about it, it is what I expected. I am glad I went with this piece instead of the CO2 powered pistol I was originally looking at. No cartridge seal to worry about, no cartridges to replace constantly, no cartridges to lug around; just need the gun, some ammo and something to shoot at. The CO2 pistol would have had the semi-auto function, but this is still a better buy.

What others should know: Pretty much the same as the old pump guns I grew up with, just with a plastic stock.
