Things I liked:

One thing I liked was the fast shipping.I ordered this rifle Thursday and by noon Saturday it was here.I live 768 miles from Pyramyd Air.I really can't complain about this rifle at all,it looks good,shoots good,seems to have pretty good power.For 140.00 I'm very happy with it.

Things I would have changed:

Nothing I would change.I really like this rifle and it does just what I wanted it for.

What others should know:

For me this rifle seems to like the Air Arms Diabolo Field Heavy 18 Grain.I only adjusted my scope twice to get one inch groups at 25 yards and that is exactly what I was looking for.Its 5 stars all the way around for me.

Things I liked:

This gun is affordable and serves its purpose (pesting, plinking and hunting). My .22 is powerful enough to efficiently kill a groundhog with a head shot at 20 yards. Fun to shoot once you get the hang of the artillery hold and find the preferred pellets.

Things I would have changed:

1. Ditch the junk scope and sell it for $100.00. 2 Stop advertising that it shoots pellets up to 950 fps. With Predator GTO's (11.75gr) it chronies @ 870 fps; with 18.1 gr JSB Diabolo,s it shoots at 630 fps (@16 fpe). I don't remember what the lead 14 gr pellets do, they don't group well anyway.

What others should know:

Being brand new to airguning when I purchased this gun I tried at least 10 different pellets; originally found that most pellets less than 18 gr would not group at all, until I happened to try the Predator GTO's (11.75 gr). I just tried them to see how they'd chrony but was suprised to find that they group best of all! This Saturday squirrel season opens and will try the GTO's.

    Things I liked:

    rifle has a good weight , is well made, open sights are very good, composite stock is ok does not feel real great in my hand ,but i guess everyone could say that , were all different in whats comfortable . right out of the box it shot well and it was clean on the inside ,no machine swarf or foreign material , . havent found ( the right pellet) yet but 14.3 and 17 grain seem to be accurate enough so far , maybe 250 rounds in it so far no failures, relatively easy to cock but not as smooth as i am accustomed to feels a touch gravelly but it will improve with use i feel,--. scope is --well-- its an optic , obviously not top shelf, but didnt expect it to be at this price point . trigger is of the same style as my benjamin can be adjusted , there is just getting used to it thats the issue for me. overall so far a good pellet rifle for the money and seems to be durable.

    Things I would have changed:

    give the stock a camo finish or designer color any thing but black composite !!! just doesnt look appealing. just leave the scope out of the box and charge ten dollars less

    What others should know:

    seller sent the item i ordered , shipped and packaged well ,no damage. and arrived promptly, easy checkout and follow up on purchase. this is one gun you could practically carry around in the woods and hunt with or dispatch pests in the yard, to me the rifle is very quiet and should not upset next door neighbors.

    Things I liked:

    I have quit a few airguns and some are rather expensive but when I go to grab a gun for a quick shot at some envasive species I grab my Remington Tyrant which is basically the same air rifle. It's short and not extremely difficult too cock which is great. It packs a real punch, I shoot an 18 grain pellet out of mine (.22) at pest busting speed. I don't own a chronograph so I'm not going to just guess but it will surely do the job for most folks. Now realize you are not buying a fine work of art "like some guns are" but your getting a very good reliable workhorse. Trigger pull is never good on guns in this price range you just have to adjust it to your liking do a light lube and work the heck out of it. At least I'm aware of when mine is going off..lol If you buy one take the time and blue locktite your forearm screws and trigger guard screws. It pays off in the long run when siting it in. I would use a good scope mount made for airguns that has a stop screw.

    Things I would have changed:

    Better trigger.

    What others should know:

    I've explained my views on the gun I think. The stock I never mentioned but on the Tyrant XGP like mine it's appendextrious and of better quality than most in this price range.

    Things I liked:

    Great price for a powerful and accurate break barrel. I'm getting 660fps at the muzzle with 18.52gr H&N Hunter Extreme. Thats 17.9 fpe and the fps at 10 yrds is still 637. Less than dime-sized groups at 12yrds. I will try to attach pics. Trigger is a long pull but not bad. I placed a UTG 3x12 bug-buster on mine and love that combo.

    Things I would have changed:

    If these triggers were better, this would be an awesome shooter.

    What others should know:

    It seams to like heavy ammo. 16gr and up.

    Things I liked:

    It's relatively quiet. Great for back yard shooting and pest control. Very accurate with the scope, out to 30 yards. Cocking effort is very stout. It's a pretty good workout for my 70+ year-old arms!

    Things I would have changed:

    The rear sight on mine is very delicate and "bouncy" (for lack of a better term). Could not get any consistency until I affixed the scope.

    What others should know:

    I used Crossman Premiere 14.3 gr. hollow points, primarily, with good results. Would like to experiment with some other loads, but those worked well enough to take out a pesky chipmunk at a fair distance. P.S.: I did not buy this gun from Pyramyd, but from a shop near my home on a whim. I have bought other things from Pyramyd though, and will purchase from them again.

    Things I liked:

    The first .223 Cal. pellet Air Rifle I purchased. Powerful and accurate. I don't even use the scope. It has front & rear sights. Which in my opinion, you only need in a break barrel. Highly recommended

    What others should know:

    Good, New addition to air rifles.
