Things I liked:

Fun factor is high. Looks great and easy to cock.

Things I would have changed:

Have the trigger adjusted to about 75% less than the current 10 mile road march in the mud. Have an access port for the screw in front of the trigger so that the trigger pull can be adjusted.

What others should know:

Now that I have figured out how to adjust the trigger, this is a little tack driver. To adjust the trigger. There're 2 screws. 1 in front of the trigger and 1 behind the trigger. The screw in the front is for the, wait for it, the 10 mile road march in the mud trigger pull. Some people call it military slack. Definitely messes with you accuracy. Now this front trigger has no access so you have to drill a hole in the trigger guard in order to get to the screw. Now this will probably void your warranty, you can thank me later. Once you have access to the front screw, start tightening it, that's clock wise, tighten the screw a little at a time until the gun will no longer cock. Then back it out about half a turn or until it cocks. You will be impressed with the new found accuracy. Backing out the rear trigger reduces the poundage of your trigger or the amount of pressure you apply to the trigger with your finger to make it go bang. Shooting cans now at 80 yards.

Things I liked:

I really like the appearance of the rifle is very realistic and i reallly appreciate that the rifle comes with a factory tripod incorporated. The rifle is very strong and the trigger is not so hard to pull.

Things I would have changed:

I would change the quality of the tripod because it is very loose when it is extended.

What others should know:

Well, I got 2 rifle from umarex and they are the octane elite and the forge and they are built so accurate that it did not took me too long to calibrate the scopes but with this black ops was impossible because the rifle got the barrel droop and i had to do some extra adjustments to got the scope at cero. Now I can see the different in quality between umarex and Chinese rifles.

    Things I liked:

    I had this rifle in the box for a month. I had a head on collision with a drunk driver the day after it arrived. I took it out today. Took a bit of time to zero but once sighted in I was amazed. At 25 yards I was shooting three round groups with all the holes in the target touching. I was using the scope that came with it. I also have a better scope I'm going to mount on it. My eight year old grandson put a few rounds through it and enjoyed it.

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing. Don't mess with perfection.

    What others should know:

    The cocking mechanism is a little hard. Younger shooters and women might not be able to cock it.

    Things I liked:

    the black Op's is my favorite air rifle, its hard hitting & accurate with great styling. Even at the gun range it turn heads, I'm happy with my choice of owning the black ops .22 air rifle.

    Things I would have changed:

    The trigger is a long pull. the barrel cocking mechanism is thin and tends to rattle a bit, unlike others that are built thick strong & solid.

    What others should know:

    The blk.op's sniper rifle is a very good air gun accurate and hard hitting its my favorite of the 4 break barrel s I currently own..

    Things I liked:

    Excellent air rifle, very accurate and hits hard at 20 yards with 14.3 grain Premier Hollow Points. The pellets were punching through 1/4 plywood. Not sure why the stock scope gets so many bad reviews, mine was holding a tight pattern. I'm suspecting others didn't tighten it down properly.

    Things I would have changed:

    Only thing I would have a complaint about would be the wobbly bipod, just way too much forward and backward movement. They work just not well.

    What others should know:

    Clean the barrel before you shoot it, otherwise it will be dieseling for the first 5 shots. Too much grease in the barrel from factory.

    Things I would have changed:

    More durable sound moderator, my fault maybe being too rough with the brush !

    What others should know:

    The bipod is quality, and the scews on everything need tightened. I used lower scope mounts for better accuracy and less to loosen up.Pellets need to be as heavy as possible. Enjoy !

    Things I liked:

    Well made and feels rock solid. Looks great. Powerful. Definitely not a toy!

    Things I would have changed:

    The bipod legs are flimsy and need replacing if you plan on using them. The scope needs replaced also so I gave three stars for accuracy based on the stock scope.

    What others should know:

    The super insane long and heavy trigger pull can be fixed!! They are terrible right out of the box and you do not have to live with them. You have to turn the rifle over and look through the trigger guard. There are two screws that you will need to adjust with a small flathead screwdriver. The screw in front of the trigger adjusts (shortens) the pull length and needs turned clockwise. The trick here is to pull and hold the trigger back with one hand while turning the screw clockwise with the other. There is a small hole on the trigger guard that allows you to slide the screwdriver through and access the front screw. If you tighten it too much the gun will not cock properly, so if this happens back it out half a turn. Now the screw located behind will make the trigger lighter and easier to pull. Turn this screw counter-clockwise to your personal preference. The screwdriver will need to be thin, long, and have a small flat head. This rifle is so much more enjoyable after adjusting it.

    Looks good. Shoots fairly consistent.

    Things I would have changed:

    The cheap scope is not very good, but then again I didn't expect it to be. The flip side are not very good. In the front sight does not go on straight when you put it in place. It's cockeyed to the right which is very poor workmanship.

    What others should know:

    I put a much better scope on it and it's pretty accurate, consistently.

    It looks great, shoots well, and is a lot of fun. Got lots of power and its great fun for casual shooting at cans and such.

    Things I would have changed:

    I wish the scope were at least moderately lined up before being shipped, and I wish the joints in the bipod were a little tighter.

    Things I liked:

    Extremely accurate, for a break barrel rifle, at 35 yds ,you can cover a five shot group with a nickel , the gun still dieseling so you will get a flyer or two due to velocity consistency, I only have about 150 pellets through it, it will only get better when the dieseling stops, I have a Benjamin Legacy, the Jim Shockey's special series, and the black op's , shoots better groups, and the Legacy is seasoned with over 2000 rds, advice, adjust trigger travel and you'll see, how accurate this thing is. Good enough for Iguana eradication, got five since I sighted in, all head shots, form 15 to 40 yards, with a Center point Scope, 4x16x40 AOL, discard the one the comes with the rifle.

    Things I would have changed:

    TRIGGER TRAVEL!!!, you start squeezing on Sunday and it will finally go off next Sunday, there is an adjustment screw at from of the trigger but is not accessible with a regular screw driver, word of caution, if you decide to adjust, and you go too far the sear wont engage, and that is dangerous

    What others should know:

    Hey I'm not an Expert, but you can't beat this deal, for $175, just get a decent scope.

    What others should know:

    This is a ell made gun, great power, great for small game. I found the scope was cheap, installed a Bushnell 3x9, worked great. shots up to 50 yrds are spot one, I wish the gun had a clip for more shots, but its still a great gun for a great price.

    Things I liked:

    This rifle hits harder than many other gas pistons. It's a little louder than othere you get shooting you won't care. Make sure you get some cleaner rounds. The rifle comes with lots of dirty dried lube in the chamber and barrel. The foam rounds you buy from Amazon .22 fire about 10-20 rounds into the fence until they stay white then you've cleaned it. After that this thing is loads of fun. I love this rifle. I gave 4 stars for accuracy only because the scope with it is very underwhelming. A quality scope would love this machine.

    Things I would have changed:

    would be nice if available in a .25. It is a little heavy and large. Is there a picatinny carry handle available for this to grab on the quick?

    What others should know:

    if you invest in a higher quality scope you won't regret it. The scope that comes with it is low quality. This rifle has a heavy kick and the also ran scope with it gets misaligned quickly. Add a laser sight with a nicer scope and loads of fun.
