    Things I liked:

    I really wanted to like this rifle, but I never had one when I was a kid and this seems to make the difference between a good experience (it makes you remember your childhood) from a plain bad one (its a plain bad rifle). I like the way it looks.

    Things I would have changed:

    First gun I had wasnt welded straight and had to be brought back (was not purchased here). Second gun had all its nuts so tight that metal parts were wavy. The trigger group is wobbly, the trigger is very heavy. The sights are too wide for accuracy. The rifle would feed correctly only two third of the time, I tested many BB brands with the same result. The accuracy is terrible. I never used a BB rifle before (only pellets) but it made me think of a shotgun, to be precise it made me think to a small bore which would throw each shot of a shotgun independently. Thats the kind of accuracy I got.

    What others should know:

    This is a love-it-or-hate-it rifle. Buy it if you know what you will get, there are way better options otherwise.

    Things I liked:

    I never had a red rider as a kid so I really didn't know what to expect. What I found is that I like this gun. Super quiet. I mean really really really quiet. Fairly accurate for a bb gun. Not disappointed.

    Nothing.

    Just enjoy owning it and shooting it.

    Things I liked:

    I purchased this little rifle for ONE thing 'quietness' ..... by far the Quietest air gun I own ... Part of the ''solution' was to set up a horizontal rail fiberglass driveway marker worked for me ... cut it to the length of the Backstop (A bail of straw) .... Targets made out of one rolled up old crew sock (each) ... a piece of wire or paper clip through the top and hang the sock roll targets on the horizontal rail .... they are practically noiseless and at 10m the bbs fall off of them or get stuck in the sock material ... perfect quiet.

    Things I would have changed:

    Windage adjustment ..... I was able to get the Vertical (elevation) adjusted pretty close with the stock rear sight .... then .... once I figured the windage by eye shooting at Hit-n-see targets .... this little gun is amazingly accurate up to 50 feet (for plinking) ... BBs gently bounce off the sock targets but accuracy is great especially at 10m ...... Trigger pull is VERY hard, that requires extra practice to get your accuracy down pat.

    What others should know:

    Although I purchased this Adult Red Ryder for a 'quiet' BB guy ...... I have to remember that hitting the target creates a LOUDER noise than the rifle .... so noise free targets were as much a solution ... ..... I put up 8 rolled and painted sock hanging targets (paper clip hanger just on enough to allow the bb to knock it off. Set em up and walk back to the 10m or more for more of a challenge and shoot em down ... practically noiseless fun!

    Things I liked:

    LOTS of shots without reloading !!!! Easy to cock, Lots of fun ... very quiet. Good power for what it is designed to do (plinking) really not as FPS as noted on the box but it can toss a bb almost 200 yards!

    Things I would have changed:

    the TRIGGER is very heavy pull ... I can't measure it but has to be between 5 and 10 pounds ....... It's a great little gun for the price but a ''WINDAGE'' adjustment on the rear sight would make it more fun for sure.

    What others should know:

    If you are concerned with accuracy you might consider the Red Ryder with a scope .... The Adult Red Ryder without the scope has only adjustment for elevation you have to make the 'windage' adjustment by eye (not difficult just a little practice to see where you are hitting) once you've got it close it plays well for plinking and is a lot of fun very quiet gun ..... I took single cotton socks and rolled them up tight put a paper clip through the top to hang em on a horizontal rod ... that way between quiet gun and targets that do not make noise when hit ... perfect backyard/neighborhood fun gun. ..... only 'negative' as far as using this gun for learning firearms etiquette is the HARD trigger pull. For the price and with soft targets this is the quiet way to have fun.

    It is what it is. Would like a little better accuracy and the power isnt what it used to be. Good for about 10yrds.

    Things I liked:

    Things I would have changed:

    For the adult version I would have like just a little more zip behind the BBs

    What others should know:

    I am very happy with this bb gun. I don't think the internals are any different than the regular Red Ryder or Buck 105. The stock is a little wider and LOP is longer to fit an adult. If you are going to take on the children in shooting cans and they have the Red Ryder or Buck, you are on equal ground when it comes to power and accuracy.

    Things I liked:

    I liked the traditional build that I kinda remember from my youth. I really appreciate the "adult" length of pull of the butt stock.

    Things I would have changed:

    I don't know that I would necessarily delete the safety but....I wish the trigger and safety(even though it is of the current build) were both made of metal. They feel like an adult may damage one or the other if roughly handled.

    What others should know:

    My gun seemed to perform well enough. That said, I remember my 1st gun seemed to be considerably more powerful and maybe/perhaps the "adult" model could reflect the slightly more rugged construction materials and power level. If I had any concerns on the initial review it is only that the stock had some looseness/wiggle. I tightened the screws a touch. I believe the wood may have shrunk a bit from assembly to my receipt of the gun that may have contributed to the looseness.

    Things I liked:

    For all that remember the original Red Ryder this is a perfect rifle sized for us who are now adults. The fit is great for an adult and the rifle brings back many memories. It allows you to teach the youth proper gun handling and safety while enjoying yourself.

    What others should know:

    A nice rifle for the adult who still has the spark inside of being a kid again.

    Things I liked:

    The gun is the right size for an adult shooter. Sights in great and is a gun I plan on passing down to my grandson..

    Things I would have changed:

    The safety on the gun sticks and does not allow the gun to shoot.

    What others should know:

    This is a good choice for those wanting to return to the days of using a bb in the woods.

    Things I liked:

    The "adult" size fits better and helps to stay on target. Even though it's a smooth bore, I have no trouble hitting my target.

    Things I would have changed:

    The only thing I would change is the loading of the BB's. I don't know how, but it sure would be a big help to make it easier to load.

    What others should know:

    It's "hell" on the soft aluminum drink cans.

    Things I liked:

    Feels like it's well made, light, easy to load, easy to shoot. Accuracy is on par with my model 25 pump.

    Things I would have changed:

    Lighten the trigger.

    What others should know:

    Mine doesn't always feed a BB and I found that if you cock the gun half way and give one quick shake it never misses a beat. Sights are difficult to see in poor light. Even with a smooth bore barrel and rudimentary sights it will hit a small juice can at 30 yards with no problem.

    Things I liked:

    Adult sized Red Ryder shoulders more closely to a real rifle than the regular sized version. 100% wood stock that's bigger all around and a metal lever. Build quality is spot on and the price is a bargain.

    Things I would have changed:

    A little more power would be nice, but I didn't buy it as a serious shooter.

    What others should know:

    It's everything you like about the regular Red Rider , but in a larger size for an adult.

    Things I liked:

    Brings back the memories of when I was a kid, except full sized. It is accurate, easy to use, and reasonably powerful, plus you don't have to reload often. Can't beat it for the price. You'll love it.

    Things I would have changed:

    A colored front sight.
