By Jed from USA on 2019-11-02 14:50:29

Things I liked:

This is a very good looking rifle with good weight and feel. The plastic stock and forearm look very close to dark walnut wood. The plastic receiver looks like shiny gold metal - can't really tell that it's plastic.. The pumping lever is hefty cast metal. Easy to load a pellet into the chamber. Easy to pump 10 times - requires very little effort! Although the butt is shiny smooth plastic it doesn't slip inside my shoulder when shooting. Nothing about this rifle looks cheap. Quite accurate - shot 1/4-inch to 1" groups right out of the box. I like the 20" octagonal barrel and the fact that it is rifled. I'm glad that the rear sight not only adjustable for height but windage as well. Fun to shoot!

Things I would have changed:

Make the phillips screw that adjusts the windage sight longer. Hard to get back in if you take it all the way out.

What others should know:

I took a chance on ordering this because the price is so low I thought it must be low quality - I was wrong. I am pleasantly surprised that this is such a high quality air rifle!

    Things I liked:

    The overall look. Easy to pump up 10 times. Solid trigger pull. Sends your pellets or bbs off with a nice, crisp crack of air!

    Things I would have changed:

    Plastic parts should be metal. Pellet loading.

    What others should know:

    This definitely has the pumpmaster beat on every level. Only time will tell how it holds up. I've got a 45+ year old pumpmaster that still shoots straight. Hopefully this will last as good.

    Things I liked:

    The fit and finish are excellent. The plastic stock feels like wood. The plastic brass receiver and but plate look beautiful. The trigger is light and easy to pull.

    Things I would have changed:

    The awkward loading of opening the chamber by putting on the safety, then pumping up, then jiggling a BB into the chamber, closing the chamber, taking off the safety, then you can finally fire the BB.

    What others should know:

    It is very difficult to insert a lead pellet in the chamber without the pellet dropping into the BB reservoir. I haven't checked the accuracy as yet and the 10 BBs I fired would not register on my chronograph.

    Things I liked:

    Looks cool. My 9 year old thinks it looks cool

    Things I would have changed:

    Quality of the plastic is bad and it flexes a lot while pumping. Very Very Difficult to load pellets. Hard Trigger, it feels like an 11 pound break. The accuracy with bbs is about 10" at 30ft, horrible. The accuracy with pellets at 30 feet is about 3 inches. I do not know if I got a lame duck, but this is going back.

    What others should know:

    Not sure what the good reviews are, I don't know if the quality has dropped since their review, but this is probably one of the worst BB Guns I have ever shot. I have shot and loved shooting for +30yrs and this is the only gun I have ever returned, ever. We were excited about this one and we were let down.

    Things I liked:

    The weight..the look, the overall feel of the gun.

    Things I would have changed:

    The way one must feed a pellet..I WILL SAY THE DESIGN SUCKS..I USE HEMOSTATS TO GET IT JUST RIGHT..... ONE FALSE MOVE AND IT FALLS IN THE BB COMPARTMENT. You would think with the time spent on looks , functionality would have played a bigger part. Seriously I thought of returning it..but its fun..has a hard tricky trigger and its difficult to know when the pellet will fly??? But within 5-8 shots I figured it out..

    What others should know:

    Its fun (ish), kinda hard to load pellets.....it would suck if you were in a hurry, say a second shot? ......has a pop so beware..very strong and fairly accurate...just hafta find the sweetspot. other than the pellet loading ..cool lil gun..easy to pump and strong. I have already put about 200 pellets thru it and it seems to be warming up to me?? :)

    Looks great and has a good weight to it. It shoots well with pellets, altogether I have not tried BBs.

    Things I liked:

    Looks cool. Good inexpensive gun.

    Things I would have changed:

    The way the pellets are to be loaded into the gun. The way to pump up. On mine, it seems I need to cock the gun before it will allow pumping.

    What others should know:

    Loading the pellet sucks. Takes way to long. Very difficult to simply drop the pellet in. Need to use a stick or something similar to get the pellet straight. Most of the time the pellet drops into the area of the b-b's. Not a good design.
