    Things I liked:

    Cost that includes a scope. I like the option if pellets or bb. Easy to pump with the large handle.

    What others should know:

    Some people complain about the quality of the scope. Come on- the total cost would not even cover a good set of rings on a center fire rifle. I can see my target well enough to get an accurate sight picture, and the adjustments work well for moving the impact. I can keep the pellet group covered by a dime at 25 feet. 4 pumps knocked out a red squirrel with a head shot at 25 feet without the danger of too much power, and the pellet hitting anything else. The trigger is acceptable-again considering the price.

    Things I liked:

    Shoots bb or pellet. Light weight. Automatic safety features built in are great for beginners like my son. Few fliers but not to far off the target. Good starter air rifle.

    Things I would have changed:

    4x32 scope upgrade was needed to bring out the best of this rifle.

    What others should know:

    Recommend pellet pen for loading. Tight space. Will hold a lot of BB for plinking cans.

    Things I liked:

    I have had this for about a year now and put thousands of rounds through it about all I needed to do was just lube it every once and awhile

    Things I would have changed:

    The scope it trash no need to even put it on

    What others should know:

    the gun its self looks wonky but for the price its great I don't recommend using this for any pest control but for plinking in a backyard. Its great not loud at all.

    Things I liked:

    Very light and fun to shoot

    Things I would have changed:

    I think for the price, it's worth the money. More metal parts would surely be a plus.

    What others should know:

    I like the way it holds bbs and easily feeds the next one onto the magnet. I've only been shooting it at 15-20 yards. It's more accurate with pellets than bb's. Being so light and plastic, I truly wonder how long it will last. Time will tell

    Things I liked:

    I bought this rifle May14,2016 from Air Gun Depot, for my 8yr old grandson. I mounted a Center Point 30mm 4x scope on it. When shooting it with lighter weight 117 cal. pellets, the gun is very accurate out to 30yds or so. I have gotten groupings of 1in. or less with 7 gr. RWS Hollow points & Crosman 7.4 gr. pointed pellets. The gun is very light weight with no recoil. The gun is fairly easy to pump and my grandson can get the first 3-4 pumps done himself. The gun is reasonably quiet. I bought it specifically for the automatic safety for my grandson. It was the only pump rifle at that time with an automatic safety. That's a good feature for younger shooters.. The rife is 4 years old now and still shoots well with no problems.

    Things I would have changed:

    None

    What others should know:

    This rifle works well with either a 4x30 scope or open reflex sight.

    Things I liked:

    Nice looking gun. Affordable. I don't think there is a better gun on the market at this price...

    Things I would have changed:

    Change the scope immediately! I used a CenterPoint 3-9x32 on mine... Although I do think 50 yards is a stretch for this gun, I did hit a pizza box, 17 of 17 times, from 50 measured yards... No accurate grouping, but did hit the box. (14x14" square).. It dented pine a full 1/8th inch at 50 yards... I have preferred the copper coated 10.6g crosman domed pellets.. Hands down, best I've used in this gun. I popped a 2" diameter, spin target from 15 yards, 4 of 7 shots....

    What others should know:

    It's a perfect entry level air gun... If u want in the game, get this first..

    Things I liked:

    Nice little multi pump. Looks cool. Light weight. Shoots pretty straight.

    Things I would have changed:

    Makes my big hands sting holding that thin little lever handle when pumping. A little hard to load a pellet when a real scope is installed. A stronger rail would be nice for optics.

    What others should know:

    Nice cheap plinker. Money well spent. Add a $30-$40 scope and let the fun begin!

    Things I liked:

    This adds to my collection with M-4, 77xs, 880, and Black Ops. It has a smooth pump, and took a UTG point sight well (though UTG adapter from dovetail to weaver is needed). The APX is an economical pump rifle that shoots the RWS Basic pellets well.

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing really. Maybe offer a version that has a pistol grip so it looks more like the Black Ops. The Black Ops is the best looking airgun I have seen yet, that is at least for pump rifles.

    What others should know:

    One single criticism, and only one, is my rifle came out of the box with no power to speak of as I ran standard tests for accuracy and penetration (soup cans). Please see PA pro Tom's review at top under "Buzz". He mentions power fluctuations, but, no, I will be very clear that my rifle power was so low, and the gun so easy to pump, that my M-4 was out shooting it handily on six pumps! Tom made clear the lube job needs to be heavier on this rifle. I agree. I tried just a drop or two of Pellgun oil; it had no effect. Four rubber seals show when the pump is open. I decided to either write off this gun as a lemon or really lube it heavily. Three drops on EACH seal did the trick. The power was restored to 880 levels, and, as I got to know the gun, it talks to you when it needs lube - when there is no resistance on the DOWN stroke at 5 pumps and over, lube it. Tom talks about "oil can in hand" and he isn't joking. Think dozens of shots. Otherwise, this is a great shooter for the money.

    Things I liked:

    It shoots pellets, it's very accurate, it shoots far. It can kill any small game, very lightweight and good for your kids to shoot at targets.

    Things I would have changed:

    Get a zeroed scope, as the one included needs to be zeroed in by yourself.

    What others should know:

    When I received it, I noticed that the screw for the iron sights is unscrewable and the sights were in the wrong position. Also, the scope might fire inaccurately because when you zero it in, the top part that you need a flathead for moves around.

    4.0 4.0

    Things I liked:

    pumps easy and has predictable pressure per pump. (100' target=3 pumps for RWS 8.3g, 3' spread : 150' target=6 pumps with 5" spead same aim point) Can see the pellets in flight! (100' target=4 pumps for Crossman Premier 10.5 Magnum, 4" spread : 150' target=7 pumps with 6" spread, same aim point) This rifle is weight dependent as far as pellets go, not so much shape. 8.2g and 8.3g RWS pellets work best for me so far. Cheap and fun to shoot, kills one gallon bleach jugs at 150 feet on a regular basis. Big time stress release. Quiet, neighbors on both sides do not complain after 1200 shots.

    Things I would have changed:

    wish there was an easier way of loading the rifle. I mounted a Gamo 4X12X44 on it (I have poor eyesight) and loading the pellets can be a pain for large fingers. Add some weight, the rifle is very light and can be a little jumpy as you pull the trigger. I am no expert on trigger pull but my NXG APX trigger action has smoothed out some and seems more predictable now that its broken in. It could still be better.

    What others should know:

    I did not buy this rifle for match shooting or hunting, I bought it for stress relief and the joy of the "thwack" (the sound the pellet makes on impact with plastic) and "thonk" (pellet impact on pellet catcher/target holder). You can spend more money but cant have any more fun.

    1.0 1.0

    Things I liked:

    The NXG was well packaged and quickly shipped by P.A.. I like the ergonomics,easy plumping action, and easy BB loading. Was hoping for a new BB rifle that I could practice with in my 18' indoor range. Unable to accurately and securely mount my Tasco, 4X32 rifle scope on the rail I added an aluminum rail to do the job. I was disappointed when comparing the NXG accuracy to that of my 30 yr. old Crosman 760. Under the same conditions at 18' my 760's shot spread is 8 mm, and that of the NXG is a disappointing, scattered 32+ mm. I do like the way the NXG handles, and the raised cheek piece is just right for the added scope.

    Things I would have changed:

    The provided scope rail should be stronger and much more accurate for scope mounting. The front sight needs to be thinner for accurate sighting. The barrel should be replaced with one of rifled solid steel for most accurate results. The present steel tube barrel would be much more accurate if it were secured properly, and not allowed to move in its housing.

    What others should know:

    The NXG is a modernized BB gun, but not a good purchase for practicing with any accuracy.
