Things I liked: Budget friendly, easily modified "lawyer trigger", ultra lite, PCP, 10-for$10 peace of mind.

Things I would have changed: Integrated picatinny rail, elevation slide on iron sites, adjustable comb, Premier Dome instead of Piranha, .25 cal option. Single shot pellet tray to avoid the loading game.

What others should know: The Bic pen trigger spring mod is non-optional, trigger was 7.8lbs. Also modified the linkage to the forward pivot position. Now the trigger is exceptional. Shoots too well to determine a preferred pellet inside the 15 yards I have out back. Pumping the rifle back up is not tiresome. I will likely free float the air tube from the stock to help eliminate POI sensitivity to hold pressure. May need to take a vacation day to go walk the forrest with this :)

Things I liked: They hit it right out of the ballpark with this one. When I opened the box I noticed a test sheet, was not expecting that. It said it was a five shot test group, but it looked like 3 until I shot it myself. Wow my test groups where cloverleafing at 20 yards. As far as charging it was charged to just under 1000 psi out of the box and took about 80 full stroke pumps to hit 2000. I get about 30 shots before it goes back down to 1000 psi. It then only takes 50 full stroke pumps to reach 2000 psi and it is very easy to pump with the included pump. The open sights are very impressive. It is not very loud, though maybe a little loud for city dwellers.

Things I would have changed: Feels light and very well built but could use another barrel support between the breach and muzzle. Front sight should be affixed with a set screw instead of being pressed on. The trigger is ok but a little on the heavy side. I would much rather have a rubber buttplate, the smooth plastic one does not set still in the shoulder pocket. Instructions could be greatly improved.

What others should know: I think this is an excellent field gun that could use a couple minor tweeks, but all in all you can't go wrong.

Things I liked: Everything. It has a good precision for the accuracy and FPS for the price. This is a good entry-level PCP rifle.

Things I would have changed: The Front Sight. When I took my first shot I notice that the Front Sight was tilted to the left. At first I thought the barrel was misaligned. Then I wiggled it a bit and, to my surprise, it came right off. It's a nice feature if you want to use a scope and stuff. Sadly, if you place the front sight back, the fiber dot is misaligned by a few degrees. I learned to deal with this, but it is annoying. However, the precision of my shots was very good. Pellets kept hitting the same spot.

What others should know: The Front Sight is easily removable. Get a scope and remove the front sight for a better experience.
