    Things I liked:

    Lightweight and nice feeling in your hands. Easy to hold and balances well with an 'artillery hold' which is needed as this springer has noticeable kick. Have only had it about a week so far with only just over 100 pellets through it but the initial twang is fading and the trigger is getting a little better (but already ordered a GRT III and will update once it's installed). Very pleased with the accuracy and it's nice that in my hands this gun makes me a better shooter which is about the highest compliment you can give a gun. I don't have a chrono but the PBA Raptors break the sound barrier and it sounds like a .22 rimfire going off in the distance when you shoot one. Is it 1200 ft/sec, well I just don't know, but it's certainly faster than 1116 ft/sec and you know as you hear the crackling of the pellet as it flies. Very surprised at the ease of cocking this weapon. I think it's advertised at 30 ft/lb of force, but sure seems closer to 20. Maybe the construction makes the cocking effort appear less due to ease of levering. I park the butt pad on my left front thigh, hold the gun with my left hand just in front of the trigger guard and cock with my right and could do this hundreds of times a day with no fatigue and I am in no way a 'strong' person. Finally, it is called Silent Cat and that's great name as this gun is stealthy and quiet.

    Things I would have changed:

    The trigger. It's smoothed out some over the first hundred shots but just don't like it much. Also, for what you're getting, this guns seems 10%-20% overpriced. The barrell and silencer surface while it seems durable also seems to be made of cheaper material, rather than blued metal. But in terms of performance overall I wouldn't want anything there changed.

    What others should know:

    My only other airgun is an AirArms S410 and of course the Silent Cat is a lot different. Easy to zero in the scope and generally satisfied with the included scope, but then again you get what you pay for so don't expect a lot. Have been using Gamo Tomahawk pellets and except for the lead dust that accumulates on my fingers, have been very satisfied with the results. Purchased this as a hunting rifle for my son, but see myself using it quite a bit too.

    Things I liked:

    quality is excellent for a gun in this price range ! it is a little hold sensitive (this is my first springer) but once you learn to hold it correctly (as lightly as possible!) it is quite accurate! perfect size for me as i am only 5'4". surprisingly solid scope mounts! does NOT budge if mounted correctly!i am a 41 year old former marine and have been shooting airguns since i was 10 and was originally disappointed with the accuracy, but trust me, it's NOT the gun! it's really only a matter of learning the correct hold. i can now cover most 5 shot groups with a nickel at 110 feet after owning this gun for 2 weeks and approx 700 rds.

    Things I would have changed:

    the factory trigger is mediocre at best. adjusting it did almost nothing for it. i ordered a better trigger from charliethetuna.com after the first day of shooting! not a big fan of the factory scope, although it works well( i personally prefer a min of 3x9x40 but am using a centerpoint 4x16x40)

    What others should know:

    2 things : if this is your first springer, watch some videos on hold sensitive guns, cause this one is!! also was told by pyramid that up to a 44 objective would fit on the factory mounts and it does not! my 4x16x40 would not clear so i ordered a VERY nice 1 piece mount for under 20 bucks ! also this gun LOVES the gamo match 7.71 gr wadcutters!

    Things I liked:

    This is a great spring air rifle. It is very nicly designed and very accurate to shoot. I shoot it at about 30 yards and like the stock sites. Very easy to see even it low light. They are a glowing fiber-optic. Very nice rifle

    Things I would have changed:

    Maybe make the thumbhole a little larger.

    What others should know:

    It will shoot close to the advertised 1200fps. My testing showed it hit at about 1175fps with german ammo and lead was only a little slower

    Things I liked:

    Great looking gun, accurate, quiet compared to my Fat Cat 1200 and stock looks and feel great.

    Things I would have changed:

    Trigger.

    What others should know:

    This is the same gun as the Whisper except for the stock. IMO, the Silent Cat's stock is much better.

    Things I liked:

    John from Alabama...I like everything about this air rifle. I have broke it in with Beeman Kodiak heavy .177 pellets,,,one inch groups at 25 yards. The feel is great,,,the rifle looks great,,,cocking and loading is very quick. The factory trigger is ok but a GRT III drop-in replacement is the secret to good tight groups. With the Beeman ammo I hear only the spring action when firing. For any distance shooting mount the scope. For the money this air rifle is Great.

    Things I would have changed:

    I recommend changing the trigger to one made by CHARLIEDATUNA.COM,,,,the GRT III.....almost all rifles shoot better with a quality adjustable trigger

    What others should know:

    PyramydAir has good prices and excellent service...I received my rifle in good condition....they are a good company to deal with
