Things I liked: First thing that I like is the soft touch stock. It is great! The accuracy of this gun is better than anything that I own. The repeat ability of the power adjuster is also perfect, it is so nice to make a power adjustment when I change the distance of my targets. I do not need to go crazy with the mil dots on my scope. I shoot with the power adjuster in the middle for 10-50 yards and just bump it up to high power when I want to shoot 50-100 yards. I also like the charging handle, it allows me to easily cock the rifle without looking or losing my cheek weld.

Things I would have changed: I would not change anything, I know everyone wants to complain about the manometer placement or the fill probe or the magazine or whatever. Nothing is going to make everyone happy, I knew what I was buying and accepted what it was before I made my final decision to buy it.

What others should know: Not very pellet picky. Just use quality pellets and find the one's your rifle likes best at the ranges you will using them. I have had this gun for almost a year and wanted to give a review based on real use both hunting and use in field target shooting. I did not get as much field target in that I wanted too but I have used this hunting with great results. It points easily and as I said already, the follow up shot is quick without losing my cheek weld. If any problems do arise with this gun, I am sure Air Arms and/or Pyramyd Air will be there to make it right.

Things I liked: I like the quality and workmanship of an Air Arms rifle. I do pest control on farms from behind or inside a blind and the Galahad has the perfect dimensions for operating in tight areas. It is very accurate in my regulated version .22 all the way down to 15 Bar. Of the five power settings, I use number 3 and routinely achieve 60-65 shots per fill. I like the cocking lever on the left side which allows me to keep my hand positioned on the trigger and grip and my eye on the reticle for quick shots onto the next target. My left hand is free to adjust parallax and cock the rifle which keeps the rifle steady and on the target. It is very quiet and doesn't spook my quarry. I have it topped with a Hawke Sidewinder 6.5X20X42 and use the Hawke Chairgun ballistic program to calibrate my holdovers with the use of a Leupold range finder. I like the black soft covering of the rifle which keeps it from being scratched in the field. It does draw the Ooohs and Aahs from people when I'm out and about.

Things I would have changed: The price of an extra magazine. I think $50 apiece is a little steep compared to a Maurader's magazine cost.

What others should know: I checked out other manufactures such as Brocock, Daystate, Hatsan, FX, BSA etc... and for the price and quality I thought Air Arms was the best deal.
