Things I liked: The gun came packed well. The tank cover is a snuggly fit plastic that doesn't feel cheap and will hold up well. The overall machining, IMHO, is on the heels of Air Force brand products. The gun is very light and shoulders well. For a .357 it's suprisingly quieter than my Condor .25. Grips are aftermarket adjustable so you can throw on your favorite Magpul.
Things I would have changed: Cocking lever has a bit of play when closed; though very strong, I'd prefer it not wiggle at all. For $999 it should come with some kind of dust cap. The carbon bottle screws into the guns frame and held more secure with a set-screw; mine's was missing, PA didn't have spares nor knew the dimesions. SURPRISINGLY! neither did Gamo when I called them, but they did give me the dimension of the screw that was readily found at Home Depot.
What others should know: The barrel stops 8 inches from the unscrewable endcap. There isn't any baffling, so noise suppression takes place in this hollow portion of the shroud (DIY-ers have plenty of room to experiment with felt, mono-cores, etc for greater noise control). I mounted a Hawk Reflex dot sight for 35-40yrd applications and I'm very pleased with the gun's accuracy at this range. I'd be confident in saying the gun will do well at farther distances using a scope. I get 15 shots to a fill on full power (low power shot count claims are much higher but i dont intend to use that function).
