Things I liked:

Geez, Just blown away with the exceptional feel of this gun .. the slim wrist and the balance are “thumbs up.” At first I thought it wasn’t coming up to advertised speeds, but after a bit she was right on .. 128 fps with the 14.3 gr. pellets, max setting, and that was at only 2000 psi in the tube! Accuracy is dead-on for short range but the weather has precluded a trip to the range for 50 yard testing. The variable power dial works as well as a regulator (not that I’ve noticed any change in POI for the first 20-30 shots on either the 4 or 5 setting anyway). And to add to it all, the adjustable trigger and hammer spring are just icing on the cake.

Things I would have changed:

I’m liking it just the way it is.

What others should know:

Buy It. It’s an amazing value.

Things I liked:

I have to admit it is a very attractive rifle, and it looks like it cost way more than it did. That only added to my frustration with it, however.

Things I would have changed:

Spending some time on quality control, has to become a top priority if you want to succeed in any business.

What others should know:

4 shots into my new ownership of this brand new rifle, and suddenly it let out a huge sigh (literally) and said "I quit!". I've been advised the "poppit? valve" broke and the rifle has to be returned. Never heard of such a valve before.....maybe they're just "pulling my leg", to see if I'd believe that. I guess over engineering is what used to happen 'back in the day", but I bet if whatever failed was over engineered, this wouldn't have happened on a brand new airgun. Maybe 5 years down the road perhaps, after 10,000 shots or years of serious neglect, but not out of the gate like this. I wanted to like this rifle so much and, for those 4 shots I actually did!

    Well built, accurate and quiet. A pleasure to shoot.

    Things I would have changed:

    Tripod and sling mounts.

    What others should know:

    I got the .25 specifically to tackle raccoons and it fits the bill. Not as much a gun for “plinking” unless you are sitting on air because you have 20 good shots; Which is fine because it this is more of a tool you dial in and bring out to check or do it’s job.

    Things I liked:

    Customer Service was great. Got My Order and everything was smooth. I mounted a Scope and went right to shooting it. Very Accurate! And Quiet right from the Start. I was shooting JTS 18.1 Pellets. They really flew great! Look at the other Budget PCP's. Look at the Flimsy unreliable Magazines. The reviews on many are receiving lower ratings for this reason. The JTS Mags are Metal! Have not had a failure yet. I have probably shot close to 600 pellets since I got it a week ago. Great Rifle!

    Things I would have changed:

    Make the Barrel a couple inches longer and instead of a Female 1/20 thread change it to a Male Version. I had to buy an adapter in order to put a Suppressor on it. So when you buy a suppressor, you have to spend an extra $50 for the adapter.

    What others should know:

    If one wants to shoot Crosman HP's to save money on pellets, just turn the power down to #3 when fully charged. Then when you get down to about 2000 PSI on the gauge, turn it back up to #4. At least that's what I have found with My Rifle. The 14.3 Pellets didn't work well at Higher Velocities. "At least in My Rifle. Get one and Have Fun! The Rifle is Wood, and Metal! No Tuppaware Plastic on it!

    Things I liked:

    Quiet but still has ping or spring noise next to house. Very accurate at 35 meters...I need bigger yard! Blemish free and well packed with NO leaks. Gauge accurate!

    Things I would have changed:

    Full info in the manual, like hammer spring adjustment and full rebuild info with exploded views. At least trigger adjustment covered. Disclose two magazines included!

    What others should know:

    Came with two magazines that are marked with white makers to avoid dry fire only by looking. Rifle with big scope at 9.5 lbs. No open sights included for a lighter rig. Very smooth side action, hard to go back to my old .25 with brute bolt action. GTS Angie showed a nice shot curve with hammer spring two turns out with toss up between 18gr. JTS and JSB pellets. My particular gun set at 3 turns out, flow at 5, out. This gave me a very good 30 shot hunting curve at 38 to 41 fpe (18.13 JSB) with great accuracy. Gun came with hammer spring out, flush with end of frame.

    Things I liked:

    Everything!! This is a budget PCP rifle that preforms better than some of my expensive guns. Quiet, accurate at 50 yards ( one hole) and for $319 I would recommend this rifle to anyone. Just plain awesome.

    Things I would have changed:

    Just a larger capacity mag.

    Things I liked:

    Best Value out there. I saw these at SHOT Show and wanted one for evaluation but they were too new. When I saw Ted holding one I jumped online and ordered it. I got my .25 yesterday and put a scope on it that was just laying around. A Sig Tango 4 4-16x FFP. 4 shots later and I was center punching the knots in the pine backstop at 35 yards with JSB King 25.39 grain pellets. THWACK! It was getting dark so I couldn't do velocity testing or shoot groups or distances. I'll update later.

    Things I would have changed:

    Stock comb isn't aesthetically balanced. (It looks like a CZ Lux, which I always disliked, so I got the 452 American) and it should be taller for cheek weld. The pressure gauge reads about 10% low but my compressor and tanks will keep that under control. I would like to put a bipod on it but the front wood is quite thin so I may not dare do it unless I screw a Pic rail on and JB Weld under it. Not sure about that one. It's not as quiet as some of my other guns but not bad. I can't see any info yet on placing a DonnyFL. Maybe it won't work on a shrouded barrel? Who knows, it may not be much of an improvement anyways? I haven't had time to take it apart to assess.

    What others should know:

    I usually use a .177 Wildcat in barns to prevent over-penetration. A .22 Maverick or Wildcat is for almost everything else. I wanted a .25 for racoons. I had tried a Marauder but the velocities were just too low so I gave up on .25's because I didn't want one bad enough to shell out the cash for the name brands that have higher pressures. This thing has racoons well covered. Except where this .25 is overly powerful for the task it is going to be used often. I love the simplicity of the magazines and the reasonable price. No taking it apart like the Fx. No spending stupid money on one like the Fx. Safety is easy and intuitive, unlike... well, you get the idea. Standard fill fitting, not proprietary. Bottom line... At this price, just get one.

    Things I liked:

    Power, accuracy, quality! I have the .25 cal Airacuda standard. Shoots many different pellets very well. With the Power selector set on the middle power I shoot 30 shots between 27 and 28 fpe. Then I turn the power up 1 knoch and shoot 10 more. At this time the pressure is down around 1800 psi. What a deal for the price!

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing as of yet.

    What others should know:

    I called the JTS customer service twice. I spoke to a very nice lady. She give me a cell number. I called and left a message 3 times and was never called back. That concerns me!

    Things I liked:

    Purchased the Airacuda Standard in .22 for pest control. This is my first PCP. Two weeks and over 100 shots I am impressed. So much nicer than nitro break barrels. Living in suburbia this thing is quiet. All you hear is the hammer spring ping and the impact. Will not be adding a silencer. Shooting free handed I have been able to group nickel and dime sized groupings at 30 yards. Shooting rest is on the way. Doesn't appear to be very pellet picky. Have been shooting 14.3 g pellets on level 3. Bump up to level Four for 18 g pellets. Level five gets 21g pellets. Fairly accurate for shooting without a rest at 30 yards. Looking forward to getting a rest and doing some more observations. The stock color is a deep chocolate brown. I rather like the darker color. As others have mentioned. The wood is not sealed and looks absorbent. Going to contact the manufacturer and see if sealing the wood voids the warranty. Shoulders nicely and feels balanced. Overall very pleased for first PCP.

    Things I would have changed:

    Seeing how this will be out with me in the garden for pest control. I can see grime hands getting this stock dirty. Hopefully the manufacture is open minded to sealing the wood without voiding the warranty. I'm old, will never purchase another plastic stock. It just feels so cheap and impressionable. To many decades of wood stocks. Will gladly pay a weight penalty for the feel and look of wood.

    What others should know:

    Paided for the ten for 10$ PA offers. Well worth it. No leaks as of two weeks. Cronno said 1020 fps with 11.9g pellets at power 5 for , 22 cal. Yikes, can't imagine that light of a weight being very accurate though.

    Things I liked:

    Seems to be good quality I have only shot a few shots through it. I am giving it four stars because it came with a few cracks in the stock.

    Better finish on stock. NO CRACKS.

    What others should know:

    may come with cracked stock, probably happened while being shipped from china.

    Things I liked:

    Highly Engineered quality and workmanship. Tack driving accuracy for a very reasonable cost

    Things I would have changed:

    Stock work finish needs a little sealer applied. Make DE-GASING (De-AIRING) screw easier to get at besides having to remove stock!

    What others should know:

    I feel JTS is quickly becoming an "Up and Comer" in airgun circles and also make some excellent gear and pellets at reasonable prices. The Airacuda is an excellent starter and keeper PCP rifle to be your first PCP airgun and add to your shooting fun.

    I like the slenderness of the stock and having a power adjuster is really nice and all metal construction is also really nice ......when you're handling the gun it feels quality and not like a plasticy toy.

    I would also add a moderator adapter it's a shame you have to spend $40 to buy a Donnie FL adapter and I would also add a Picatinny mount to the stock so you can have a bipod.

    I have only shot it maybe 50 times so far. That was getting the scope set then shooting it every 25 yards all the way out to 100 yards. I can't say ya or na about the dependability yet but it does hang in there with my marauder as far as power and accuracy goes. For the money you won't go wrong with this gun. Power and accuracy at a affordable price.

    What others should know:

    I got the first one and it shot great at first. Then it started leaking air from the fill port. After several attempts to fill the gun, it started working again but only for two fills. I contacted Pyramyd Air, they were great and sent me a return slip. About a week later I received my second JTS Airacuda, I took it out of the box and filled it. It holds air but it shots at a very low power. I have tried it on the lowest to the highest setting and it won’t shot through a drink can. I will contact PA on Monday and see where to go from here. This is my third PCP, ( Air Force 22 cal and an Umarex Hammer), and have not had any problems with them. I don’t know if I have been unlucky with the JTS or if their quality controls are very bad but at this time I am recommending NOT to take a chance on their products.

    Things I liked:

    Wood Stock, fill port and the power

    What others should know:

    My only complaint is that the accuracy is hit or miss. I only shoot to 35yds and some 5 shot strings and even the occasional 10 shot string will group under a 1/2" and other times it's like a shogun all over the place. I have found that the pellets were striking the threaded muzzle cap. I removed the shroud and the barrel cleaned everything up and put it back together and it improved things a little but not very much. I did notice that when I removed the barrel that it had been put in a straightening device. I have about 2 tins of pellets through it now and hoping that it will settle in soon or it's goes to the back of the closet.
