We frequently get asked if the barrel is really only 9 inches long. Yes, it is! The barrel is the rifled steel portion. If you measure the exterior of the action from the receiver to the muzzle, you'll come up with a much longer dimension than 9 inches. But what you're measuring is not the barrel, but the cover that goes over the barrel and the attached muzzlebrake. The barrel consists of the rifled part only, and that measures just 9 inches on the Bronco.

The Bronco is a popular rifle in its original configuration. But because it's very accurate, we felt it deserved a more precise rear sight. Be prepared to extract even more accuracy from this super-smooth shooter!

Things I liked: I bought the Bronco as a starter rifle for my grandsons, so I am pleased with the shorter length of pull, the smooth, easy trigger, the automatic safety, and the relatively easy cocking. Fit and finish seems OK to me for a low priced gun like this.

Things I would have changed: I have put about 100 rounds through the gun so far and there are several things I don't like. 1) It should have come with a warning note about the tar-like goo in the barrel. It doesn't come clean easily with mild cleaners that you are warned to use. 2) So far, it is not shooting as accurately as my old Gamo with the terrible trigger, which may be caused by residual tar in the barrel. 3) Once cocked, the barrel has the tendency to fall partially open if the gun is jostled the least bit. A real annoyance. 4) I favor peep sights and paid extra for this model with the Williams sight. However, this sight is a very cheap version and is very difficult to adjust. You don't simply loosen a set screw and dial it in. If you are a "set it and forget it person", you won't like it.

What others should know: I'm sure my grand sons will be ecstatic with this gun. But I am also sure that if the peep sight needs adjusting they will get very frustrated and may just be better off with the open iron sight.

Things I liked: This a fun, easy to control, fits well,very accurate, and powerfull enough to take down the metal shoot thru the center, knock down type rabbits, crows, and squirels up to about 15 to 20 yards. I got this for my wife, and she has been enjoying it very much. She has put about 350 to 400 rounds thru it in about two weeks. Water filled soup cans, cans on sticks spin around, just fun.

Things I would have changed: The only thing that might be a problem in the future is the very, small allen screws that hold the peep sight on the rails, these can not be hulked down. Now to the long lockdown screw that is used to lockdown the height adjustment, it is just to loose, almost lost it due to vibration, it backed out almost all the way. It needs something to keep it from vibrating out.

What others should know: As I mentioned above, FUN. If you get one I think you will enjoy it. My husband got this for me, I am a medium sized women with little upper body strength and it easy for me to cock. I have had trouble with his other break barrel air rifles. It should be a good rifle for our grandkids too.

Things I liked: Very accurate for a break barrel springer.

Things I would have changed: Better sights, the Williams Target sight does not work with this air gun without raising the front sight considerably. You are getting a fairly accurate but cheap springer with a cobbled up sighting system, don't be fooled. The safely is kind of cheap along with the plastic "breach block". The comb of the wood stock needs to drop more, seems like the stock was carved out of a 2x6.

What others should know: The reason I gave this 1 star is not necisarily the quality or function of the air gun but that Pyramyd Air would ever let the Target Pro model of this air rifle leave their hands without adding the front sight riser or at least take the time to toss it in the box. Why pay $50 extra for a target sight that doesn't work with the air gun as is? Why not just add the $2 sight riser? Overall not worth the hype, save your money and buy something higher end.

  • Chris from USA asked:

    Does this come with the front sight shims to use with the micrometer sight or do I need to buy them as well?

    • Val from USA:

      the shims are no longer necessary since the rear sight was switched to Air Venturi Williams one

    • Jerry from USA:

      The sight does not come with the shims
