Black Ops Tactical Sniper Air Rifle
Benefits of a gas-piston powerplant over a metal mainspring:
The manufacturer claims this gun delivers .20-inch groups (center-to-center) at 10 meters.
This is a breakbarrel air rifle, but the manufacturer has installed a bolt to give this air gun a more authentic tactical look. The bolt is non-functional.
Where most tactical shooters only launch BBs, the Black Ops Tactical Sniper is something special. Instead of a smoothbore BB rifle, this rifled gun will give you more accuracy than ever with lead pellets! Featuring and adjustable comb, you’ll have no trouble finding a comfortable hold. Each Sniper Air Rifle includes a 4x32 scope or removable fiber optic sites if you want to test your shooting skills. The adjustable bipod attaches directly to the forearm so there’s no need for awkward barrel clamps or added adaptors. Go prone, post up, and send some lead downrange!

Things I liked: Accurate and powerful. Noticeably more hard-hitting than some other "magnum" air rifles I own. Overall seems well made. Nice fit and finish for this price range. Although I'm not into the tactical look, the cosmetics are fine. Bi-pods work well (but need regular tightening or some Loctite). Fake suppressor makes a nice cocking grip. The price makes this rifle a good buy, give it a better trigger and I'd pay more.
Things I would have changed: Trigger, Trigger, Trigger! LOT's of travel and a heavy pull. One of the worst tiggers yet! The biggest con and only reason I'm not giving this rifle 5 stars. I did not expect much from the scope, but it's tolerable for a combo. Already upgraded the scope. Adjustable length stock would be nice. Seems just a bit short for my long arms.
What others should know: The trigger really holds this rifle back. Did a online search and found some mods that might help out with the trigger. A bit hold sensitive, but if you let the bipods do most of the work and press the stock moderately into your shoulder your groups might tighten-up like mine did. Like others said, the pistol grip is a bit thick but really not an issue for me. Barrel was dirty out of the box. After a dozen or so shots the noise level seems only a bit louder than my other break-barrels. Heavy but reasonable cocking action. After trying a dozen+ different pellets (.177) 8.80 Crow magnums gave me the tightest groups at 40 yards. Not as pellet sensitive as some of my other air rifles. Supplied scope rings seemed high at first, but work well with the stock height and even better with the Hammers 3-9x40 AO Air Magnum scope I purchased separately. Overall I am happy with this purchase. If I can get this trigger figured out, I'll be even happier.
Things I liked: Beatifull. Well built. Accurate. Powerful.
Things I would have changed: Noise level. Upgrade scope. Better trigger. Lighter weight.
What others should know: Easy to add AR15 iron sights by installing a scope rail adapter to the muzzle brake.
Things I liked: Definitely has the cool factor. Plenty of power. Seems to have the 'potential' for accuracy, but it will test your shooting technique.
Things I would have changed: Barrel came exceptionally dirty. I spent at least an hour running patches through it before they were only coming out light orange...not sure if this was dried grease residue or light rust. After thorough cleaning, rifling now looks sharp and bright. Long, springy, heavy trigger pull. The WORST I have experienced in many guns of this type. Picatinny rail for the scope mount is coated with thin layer of rubberized plastic - better if this was just metal. With scope mounted, the rail and it seems the whole plastic body of the receiver flexes. I have not found a way to tighten this. That can't be great for accuracy. The bipod is heavy (all metal) and is quite wobbly. This is a fairly long and heavy rifle and to definitely takes effort to cock. The "suppressor" is for looks only and does not appear to be removable. This rifle is loud and it would benefit from a functional suppressor.
What others should know: I find the long, heavy, springy trigger pull to really take some work to get used to. I am a huge believer in the value of a good trigger and good optics and this trigger is just ridiculous. Had I known about the trigger, I would not have bought this rifle. Also, I'm having trouble getting this one to settle down and be consistent despite my best efforts. I've got a couple hundred shots through it of at least 5 different pellet types (JSB, H&N) ranging in weight from 14gr to 21 gr. In 7-10 multi-shot strings at 35 yards, I can get many to stay in a 3/4" to 1" group, but there are always several fliers that are 3/4" to 1" away from the main shot cluster. Artillery hold, bipod, no bipod, etc. and I'm still hoping to find the right trick.

Can the muzzle break be removed/replaced? ---
just got this gun on 09-09-17... does anyone know the outside diameter of the fake silencer?
Is there any 3rd party Trigger assemblies that will fit and work in the Black ops .22 ? That sure looks like there is a markey for such a trigger Joebiplane
