Things I liked:

I gave this 5 stars for being a AirForce product, the design and the caliber, .257. This is not my first .257, the first was a Haley Scandalous that I made 500-550 and 615 yard 12 oz cola can videos of the lasered range and the hits. I like the trigger, the shroud and quality LW barrel, but the .257 caliber sold me. I also like the after market parts available.

Things I would have changed:

Speaking of after market parts and feeding this beast, I did or will do the the following: I will install a 25 lb hammer spring, carbon fiber 3650 psi bottle, I removed valve return spring. To feed this very long rifle, I ordered a Arsenal 258420 boat tail bullet mood and a 258 sizer from NOE. I have a 4x16 Hawke FFP scope in Burris Signature rings installed and I have a MadDog stock on order also.

What others should know:

Did I mention it is long, yeah really long, if I could find 2 inch crutch rubber end caps, at 54 inches it is the correct length to be a crutch for a 6 ft tall man. I have owned a few big bores, Haley 257, Ranger 45, Bulldog 357 this is the quietest one yet. It is also the flattest shooting big bore I have owned. At 1130 FPS with a cast .258 72 grain bullet, with a 88 yard zero, your never more than 1.6 inches above or below line of sight from 20 yards to 100 yards. What other air rifle can do that?

Things I liked:

I can't tell you what I like because I haven't been able to shoot the airgun yet. The tank would not take air and or hold it. The air tank was sent back to be checked. I haven'r received it back.

Things I would have changed:

Check air cylinders before shipping.

    Things I liked:

    The overall gun is a beast, the breach load and action is better than expected. Nice trigger pull. Definitely wasn't as heavy as I first expected. Hits hard and is pretty accurate when you learn how air pressure affects follow up shots.

    Things I would have changed:

    The 11mm dovetails just suck, and adding an adapter to weaver or picatinny is just extra weight. The plastic furniture leaves more to be desired.

    What others should know:

    Its worth the price, the small things I can live with. Make sure to get .510 slugs not .50 slugs. Invest in a scba tank, or even a compressor.

    Things I liked:

    Did not give an "accuracy" report as I haven't shot the rifle yet. It's WINTER here, cold and lots of snow. Looking forward to shooting it when spring finally arrives. It is well made and looks really cool. Like I said, I'm SO looking forward to shooting it.

    Things I would have changed:

    Maybe the weight. Definitely a hefty rifle.

    Things I liked:

    Lots of power. Huge wow factor when you bring it out on the range. Definitely as loud as a .22lr pistol. The long barrel and even longer suppressor makes this an intimidating weapon that no one assumes to be an air rifle.

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing about the gun itself, however see below for what to consider when buying this gun.

    What others should know:

    This gun requires 129 strokes on the average bicycle style air compressor for every two shots. Meaning 26 shots will require approximately 1,677 strokes. If you need a workout, be my guest, otherwise get a tank! Also, this will not fit in any of your current gun cases. The awesomeness is just too long. You will have to remove the tank and the last three inches of the suppressor, which is easy yet after so much work into getting it sighted in, I really did not want to take it apart. One more thing, the slugs need to be .510. Do not buy slugs for Seneca rifles. They are smaller than what this beast requires.

    Things I liked:

    Extremely accurate and powerful. This is by far my favorite high performance air rifle. There is nothing it can't do, from the high accuracy demands of long distance target shooting, to being able to knock down pretty much any size game in North America. The variety of ammo it can shoot is extremely convenient. Being able to tune this rifle in the way this design allows makes the "if I could only have one rifle" choice easy - THIS would be that one.

    Things I would have changed:

    A magazine option would be great, but that would also likely limit the range of ammo it could shoot

    What others should know:

    It is long, so finding a case to fit is a little challenging. However, I found a very nice tactical case that fits it perfectly even with the suppressor on. I wouldn't want it any other way though, as the vary length of this rifle is what makes it so deadly accurate, more powerful and more than acceptably quiet for my back yard shooting as long as I stay with grain weights that shoot at subsonic FPS.

    Things I liked:

    Great gun. 1050 fps with Hornady 143 gr. .457 round balls at about 3/4 power/spring setting. Very accurate out of the box. I have several brands and grains of ammo, but love the perfect Hornady .457's it's just really fun to shoot and obviously will do the job on white tail deer. I am an accuracy freak and I'm pleased!

    Things I would have changed:

    My only complaint is the small hand grip with no factory option to go larger. Without modification my trigger finger is completely through the trigger guard rather than the tip of my finger on the trigger. In the process of modifying the grip now. Totally unacceptable for anyone with a large hand. Went to 2 gun stores and found a slip over rubber grip, but will still have to add filler and tape under the grip to have the right fit. By the way I'm 5'9" and don't have giant hands, I just wear large gloves (the grip is really small).

    Things I would have changed:

    The butt stock that is fitted to the air tank could look better and be a little more comfortable! And I think for having a suppressor it could be a lot quieter!

    Wood furniture would be a nice option i.e. Cocking lever, for grip, and pistol grip

    The way the air tank is attached to the gun. Should make it easier to attach it.

    What others should know:

    When pump air into the tank, pull the valve out gently so that air wont escape out.

    Things I liked:

    I am completely satisfied with this BB Gun, It is very accurate; very very accurate. I think the safety being automatically selected to SAFE by opening the chamber is a very prudent feature - remember what Ralphie's mom and Mrs Shields said about BB guns. No problems with neighbors - It is quiet.

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing

    What others should know:

    Learning how to use the Tuner - or - remembering to use the Tuner takes the marksmanship badge to Sharpshooter.
