    Things I liked:

    Great looking gun! Powerful! Solid and well put together Scope is well made, quite clear but no magnification Excellent value

    Things I would have changed:

    Make it a real silencer - this is one LOUD gun! It's taking a while to get it sighted in. Not sure if it's the gun, the scope or me... or the gun just needs to settle in. Lose the white Black Ops logos.

    What others should know:

    You'll need to clean it and lube it and clean it again. Then the dieseling will make the thing sound like a firearm for about 15 shots. Then clean it again. Not for the faint of heart - this thing has a sound and recoil you need to be ready for. I bought the old spring .177 version refurbed from the manufacturer. I understand the new gas versions have more power... but the build quality and materials are lower - and do not have the butt length adjustment mine has - which is needed for a bipod mounted sniper weapon. Trust me, the springer has more than enough power. Holy cow, this shoots like a 22LR.

    Things I liked:

    Very accurate, incredibly powerful.

    Things I would have changed:

    The included scope is grossly under powered.

    What others should know:

    Like the others have said, this is no toy. I have destroyed a metal catch at 50 yards using 10gr pellets. It can be a bear to cock at first. It is also deceptively heavy. The included stands do a good job balancing the weight. This was my first rifle and I do enjoy it but I should have done a little more research for what I was looking at doing.

    5.0 5.0

    Things I liked:

    This rifle I found to be extremely well made for the money. The break barrel is manageable wth one hand for cocking and the recoil is absorbed very well due to the design. Indeed this is a tack driver and after chronographing I found the advertised FPS is very close to specification. Adjustments can be made for optimum comfort for any shooter. The scope took a bit bit of time to properly sight in. But at 25 yards I was grouping one on top of the other. I rate this a solid 5 stars across the board.

    Things I would have changed:

    Realistically for the money, I would not change a thing.

    What others should know:

    This is not a toy and is extremely powerful. Please use caution when handling. Specifically when cocking the pellet gun and inserting pellets. keep a firm grip on the barell to avoid it from closing on your finger. "Thanks Pyramyd Air for another great product!" Respectfully, Arthur Paul

    Things I liked:

    Just as previous posts, value for the money. Once zeroed with different scope, plugging silver dollar size bulls @ 30 yards! Should do just fine in the woods.

    Things I would have changed:

    Scope

    What others should know:

    Not a toy! This is a workhorse that should last a long time, if taken care of regularly.

    Things I liked:

    The trigger pull i very good. Overall set up is quite easy.

    Things I would have changed:

    The scope could be a little better. This criticism is not restricted to this gun. Why don't scope manufacturers engrave a line up the middle of the scope tube and a matching mark on the scope rings to help alignment. In this particular rifle, although the bolt handle is not real, there out to be an option to place it on the left side. There should be an option for sling swivels. These are all very minor things.

    What others should know:

    Absolutely, this is not a toy. I plan to use it for small game hunting. I am more than pleased with the product.

    Things I liked:

    I like that it holds up as well with shooting as to the .177 Cal version. The gun is great the only down side is the scope But do to the price and the gun it is a great setup. If you buy a good scope for this it is a very deadly gun. I was able to setup a target to day at 35 yards and shot 5 .22 Cal pellets the H&N Crow Magnum .22 Cal, 18.21 Grains, Hollowpoint, 200ct, 5.5 mm This gun did well with them with a group of 5 shots within a quarter size group. that is nice to see.

    Things I would have changed:

    I feel there isn't anything to change. I would like to see this in a PCP setup with the capability of the bolt being used to load the Pellets that would be nice to see. But for the price it is a great deal so for a low price i wouldn't change a thing.

    What others should know:

    I WOULD LIKE TO SAY THAT THIS IS NOT A TOY AND IF A CHILD IS USING IT PLEASE PLEASE HAVE SOMEONE WITH YOU THAT KNOWS ABOUT SAFETY PLEASE THIS GUN WILL KILL!!!!!!!!!!! IF IT IS NOT USED IN A PROPER SAFEWAY. I need to say first that I do own the Black Ops Sniper Air Rifle Combo .177 Cal. I seen that this now comes in the .22cal. I have owned both the spring and I own the Black Ops Tactical Sniper Power Piston Pellet Gun combo .177 Cal. The spring version is bad i was always off target and the recall was bad. I am glad they made the NEW power piston ones they are great. I JUST BOUGHT Black Ops Tactical Sniper Air Rifle Combo .22Cal for my birthday I ordered it on Sep 5 2016 and it just got to me on Sep 8 2016 came to me at 3pm took it out and sighted in the scope and the gun was roght on after about 6 shoots.

    Things I liked:

    I have bought a couple of airguns in the past which were twice the money. I can't say enough on how well made, accurate and cool this gun looks. You just can't beat it for the money. The scope that it comes with is alright for the time being. I would recommend you upgrade the scope. Other than that this gun for the money is a beast...

    Things I would have changed:

    Maybe adjustable stock. The scope has got to go.

    What others should know:

    For 160.00 you will love it...

    Things I liked:

    This in the .22 package is by far the best break barrel air rifle I have ever owned. I unboxed it extremely pleased took one look through the scope jumped in my car went straight to local gun store and bought a 3x9 x 50 scope. It took less than 12 shots to pin point accuracy at 30 yards. I'm talking dime sized groups. The trigger is better than the crosman trigger, but the crosman trigger has never been an issue for me. As far as what I liked Everything absolutely everything but the scope. If for those who money is hard to come by the scope will work just fine. The bipod is cool and works just fine, The things I liked The looks the feel Really though the power and accuracy. BUy this this gun before they realise they can get A LOT more for it.

    Things I would have changed:

    The only thing I did change the scope, it never even got mounted on my gun it sits in its lonely drawer with the center points and swiss arms scopes and a few gamo scopes So I guess its not lonely at all it has plenty of friends. I does not have a place for this rifle. Will the scope work. Yes it will but a gun of this caliber deserves a scope that would put the pellet Exactly where you want it.

    What others should know:

    BUY THIS GUN NOW!!!! Or wait until they raise the price, Either way buy this gun you will absolutely love it.

    What others should know:

    the scope mount and rails and the bi-pod rails work loose quickly. A little lock-tight will help.

    Things I liked:

    It seems to have pretty good power, I am using a heavy pellet which helps the accuracy also.... looks pretty cool! and it is a military platform in a .22 with a reasonable price tag

    Things I would have changed:

    rather cumbersome, if you are small it is probably not for you.... cocks hard..... Scope definitely needs to be better, the picatiny rail should have been metal.

    What others should know:

    I bought it because I wanted a reasonably priced military style platform air rifle in .22 If you are buying this in .177 then I highly recommend the crossman mtr77np, a far better gun. I wish the mtr came in .22

    Good looking rifle. Fun to shoot. Very accurate. Hard hitting.

    Things I would have changed:

    Make the bi-pod legs a little less wobbly and add an adjustable trigger. The scope is adequate but I'd recommend buying a better one.

    Things I liked:

    Everything but the scope. This would be a great value without a scope. Just got it yesterday and mounted another 3X9 scope I had. After an initial cleaning I started sighting it in. Within 10 shots I was grouping 1 inch at 25 yards using the PCP Diabalo Heavy pellets. As others have stayed this is a fantastic value. Aside from the scope issue it has an awful trigger, heavy, scratchy, very long pull. Its heavily built Its not nearly as loud as I expected. The report,is more of a mechanical sound than a bang or report.

    Things I would have changed:

    Scope, maybe iron sights, trigger pull.

    What others should know:

    Fantastic value.

    Things I liked:

    Since I want this review to be about the gun and not the scope, let's get that rant out of the way first. I will never understand why a manufacturer would bundle such a poor scope with an outstanding gun like this. It's basically a toy, wont hold zero, and is a complete waste of time. When you order the gun, order a decent scope as well, the gun deserves it. I bet a lot of people return this and other guns just because of the scope. It might turn someone new to the sport against airguns. With that out of the way, airguns have been my hobby for many years and I have a bunch of them. This might well be the most accurate out of the box air rifle I have ever had. I cleaned the barrel and shot it a few times just to make sure everything worked OK. I mounted the cheap scope and used Loctite on the screws. Next day I sighted it in and within nine shots I put 3 in the bullseye at 30 yards. Within a few shots the scope had lost zero and started shooting to the left. I threw that scope away and mounted a 4-16 x 40 mm Center Point from Walmart. It has held zero for about 200 shots so far. I can put 8 or 9 shots in the bullseye from 30 yards every time and when the gun settles down ( still dieseling just a little ) I expect it to get better. The gun feels solid. It's a little heavy but since the weight is listed in the specifications, that should be no surprise. The trigger is long and stiff, I hope that improves with time. I bought this gun in .22 because I plan to do some small game hunting with it. For that reason I didn't mount the bi-pod and probably wont. The gun shoots hard. I don't have a chronograph but comparing it to the known velocity of some of my other guns I'm guessing it's around 900fps. The only pellets I have used are the 14.3 g Crosman hollow points from Walmart. I highly recommend this gun.

    Things I would have changed:

    Put some open sights on the gun. Leave off the cheap scope

    What others should know:

    This gun can be bought with the gas piston or a spring. I recommend gas pistons in general, but I have no experience with the spring version of this gun.

    Things I liked:

    Tactical style, look & feel. Not as heavy or hard to cock as otherwise reviewed, well constructed durable materials, faux action bolt and muzzle compensator, adjustable cheek rest, optional bipod, decent trigger, included scope and rings, overall size, ease of handling, gas piston, extremely accurate and very hard hitting, weaver rails,, competitive price for what you get. . . .

    Things I would have changed:

    Would like the extended butt pad a feature of the previous version. . . . not a deal breaker

    What others should know:

    Just when I thought that I had experienced the top of my range of affordability & performance. . . .I stumble upon this Ignite Black Ops Sniper .177. This rifle way exceeds my expectations and lives up to the hype from the online reviews. Recent purchase before this Black Ops was the Remington Thunderceptor .22. I thought that was the tops! This Black Ops is much lighter and appears to equal performance (no actual testing), just from realtime operation and performance. Using the JSB 10.34gr. Added a 9-24x50 scope w/sun shade & 1pc tactical mount takes this rifle to another level of performance. Barrel not as dirty as other reviews but did run a few cleaning pellets thru it before scoping. 3 shot adjustments and hitting exactly where aiming, literally destroying various target types. Pests will be NO problem for this rifle. Have not tested the range but sighted in at 25-30yds. (ave range for backyard shooting). Noise level does not appear to exceed the other rifles I have. 10*
