Things I liked: Very accurate with jbs 18.13. 130 shots on high power 950 fps with the 18.13. Magazines works great and the pellets loading mechanism is very smooth.

Things I would have changed: Wish the shroud would have some kind of suppressor in it.

What others should know: The case is too tight for the rifle and kind of weak but, the weapon is great for the money.

Things I liked: The Bigmax is very solidly built and shoulders well. The trigger is decent if a bit heavy. The sidelever action is good and getting better. Magazines are fine and fit in the receiver very snugly. Stock is great! It produces the fps / fpe advertised. My 10-for-10 string was with light .22 pellets (11.9 grain hobbies) and was about 1060 fps. It shoots crosman hollow points at 960 and jsb 18s and 890. I have not shot enough to comment on its accuracy yet. It was extremely windy on the day I was able to shoot it. I will write another update after I get more pellets through it.

Things I would have changed: The threads on the Kral foster fitting are too short to seal with the recommended Air Venturi Male Quick-Disconnect. It needs a longer plastic insert to go inside the quick-disconnect. I had to add a very small o-ring behind the white plastic seal inside the quick-disconnect. I consider this a temporary "fix". The allen screw that holds on the included bipod rail was too long and bottomed out before hitting the rail. This needs to be shorter or you need to add washers to take up this space. Now here is the biggest issue... From what I can tell the hammer spring access is blocked by the rear air tank. Assuming this is the case, I'm going to go through a lot of air tuning the rifle. (I do have a shoebox compressor.) From the gun's sound, it is clearly wasting a LOT of air. Not that air quantity is an issue... :-) but this indicates that its tune if far from optimal. Why do turkish gun makers fail to use normal picatinny rails on the receiver? Plan to have dovetail mounts.

What others should know: Pyramyd gives this rifle a loudness score of 4-medium/high. I would say there is nothing "medium" about the loudness. it's LOUD! It did not come with the extra o-rings stated in product description. I have not used the bipod that shipped with it. The manual did not have any section written in English.
