Things I liked:

The stock color blk, shoot awesome, easy to handle.

Things I would have changed:

Easier to load

What others should know:

Not for kids you need to be able to pull back loading mechanism and insert magazine but after that it good. It did leak and sent it back almost 3 months now and still waiting

Things I liked:

It shoots most of the time when I pull the trigger.

Things I would have changed:

I would use a different magazine so you didn't blow the breach seal on the 11th shot. I would use a different barrel so you could hit the same spot twice. I would use a different action so it would feed reliable. I would use a different bolt so that I didn't need a 3rd hand to cock it off a bench.

What others should know:

I use hawk scopes. I have a marauder field and target, and an fx maverick. This semi auto is JUNK. it's not even good for plinking at 25 yards. You have to clean it every 100 shots or it gets even worse. I've never seen a rifle get so dirty. I even tried the Crossman copper pellets. They feed something awful, and still fowl the barrel. If you buy this rifle the parts you enjoy mist should be loading pellets, cleaning rifles, and missing your target.

    Things I liked:

    I have about 4000 rounds through this thing. 3 jams and all of them when the tank pressure was getting low. I am getting about 80 shots to a fill and accuracy is very good but not quite as good as the original bolt Marauder probably due to the long trigger pull that takes a bit to get used too, Fun factor of the semi-auto is off the charts, I hardly ever use my other 3 PCP's since I got this thing.

    Things I would have changed:

    Shorten the trigger pull and make it lighter. Maybe offer 3 shot burst mode?

    What others should know:

    If you buy one of these you will triple your pellet consumption as everyone that sees it wants to try it out.

    Things I liked:

    The people at Pyramid Air were helpful. I had to return the original LEMON I received, after one week! I bought this rifle based on the good reviews & accuracy ratings (Bots, or 2 duds?). I was pleased for about the first 60-100 shots. Then the jamming began! The magazine is NOT at all reliable. I'm sure future modifications will resolve the issue, but for now it makes the gun woefully unpredictable. I have had to wrestle the magazine out more then once. After a jam the weapon takes a long time to recover. The lack of a "hold open" on the bolt makes loading and clearing a jam VERY difficult. When the weapon operates properly, it is magnificent. The accuracy with the diablo jumbo exact 18.13 grain pellets seems best. When the thing works I experienced many more issues with the 14 gram pellets. The exchanged, remanufactured replacement is only marginally better. I had expected a long life of plinking with this gun. It looks like I will have to look elsewhere for that.

    Things I would have changed:

    I would have purchased a better gun! 1. A reliable magazine design. Crossman NEEDS to resolve the feed issues. I never know if I'm going to make a shot or face another jam! 2. Bolt hold open 3. Better information from the manufacturer about maintenance/ operation. It is possible that the magazine issue has everything to do with the way I am using it. 4. Overall fit and finish is NOT as expected. Quality control is lacking from Crossman

    What others should know:

    I tried to downgrade my initial "Value for the money" to a two star. The rating system would not allow it! The rifle IS accurate When it works!! At a few weeks old, and a replacement already, it looks very doubtful! For a rifle of this price, I feel that other manufacturers probably make a more reliable/ better value unit. I am VERY disappointed with Crossman with this weapon! I have a Bull dog as well. That weapon operates quite reliably. My only issue there is with the 350 grain slugs that were "specially" made for the .457, they won't even feed through the magazine!! Maybe someone at Crossman should ACTUALLY operate the product prior to making it available. My faith in the previous reputation for Crossman quality is dashed!! Buyer BEWARE! The people at Pyramid have been helpful so far. I'm very concerned about the longevity of this rather expensive rock I bought! The Ford Edsel of air guns?

    Things I liked:

    This PCP Rifle is Extremely Accurate and Quiet. Operates the best from 2800psi to 2000psi. At these pressures a Scuba tank at 3000psi gives a lot of refills. Also the Hand Pump operates a little quicker at these pressures.

    Things I would have changed:

    If possible the weight. But I under stand that High Air Pressures take strong materials to contain it. Adjustable comb has Sharp edges.

    What others should know:

    This is my first PCP Air Rifle, and I would say so far it preforms just like they say it will. Pyramyd Air will be my go to people.

    Things I liked:

    It's fun to shoot at plink targets

    Things I would have changed:

    I would put a faster filling reg on it. Pulling the trigger fast throws it off bad. You can watch each shot go lower.

    What others should know:

    This thing is not a hunting rifle. Has way to many fliers.

    Things I liked:

    Accurate, fast, reliable, light weight and well balanced, hand pump friendly and just a blast to shoot.

    Things I would have changed:

    edges on the adjustable comb are a little sharp and the synthetic stock feels kind of toy like. the wood stock model would be better if you're not worried about the weight savings. mag changes aren't the most elegant and take some practice.

    What others should know:

    buy extra mags! you'll shoot through them quick.
