Things I liked: Very nice fit and finish, just what I was expecting from Browning. Made in Turkey, it's been my experience that they make nice guns there. My brother has a 20 gauge semi made by as I recall Hatsan, very nice also. Anyway this Browning 800 Express works flawlessly, nice trigger. I haven't done any bench testing but off hand it seems to be as accurate as I am. I wanted a relatively powerful springer pistol and this fits the bill very well. We had a rat problem for a while after a nearby house got torn down and replaced. My hound dog was quite helpful in finding them and I was originally dispatching them with my Gamo Shadow 1250, ,but some of the shots were very hard to make with a rifle. The rats would crawl up inside equipment in the yard. So I decided to get this, sort of wanted one anyway. It has worked well and we are rat free once again! Cocking this without the "coking aid" can be done but is annoying to me, I just leave it on.
What others should know: I use this with Predator Polymags, works great on rats and Blue Jays
Things I liked: I have the 22 cal version. Its the most powerful spring pistol out there! I have harvested rabbits and squirrels with it out to 25 yards.
Things I would have changed: The trigger is to heavy for my liking and non adjustable pulling at 4lbs. I have owned this pistol for 9 years now and was brave enough to take it apart a few days ago to try and lighten the trigger. The spring had to be removed to get the trigger housing out as there is a metal washer between the spring and spring cap. I polished up all three sears and reinstalled. It now brakes at 36 oz! No instructions or videos out there on how to do it so I winged it. Make sure to take some pics before you take it apart to help with reassembly...as I didn't. I would have also like to see the cocking aid Permanently Attached. Also the fiber optic front sight is fragile. It broke on mine. Umerex sent me a replacement one. Fiber optic sights are great till they brake. To me they need to figure out a better way to protect them.
What others should know: I have dispatched several raccoon at very close range with predator pellets in trap lines. They need to be hit the eye or ear with that pellet or it will not penetrate the hide. A harder pellet like rockets or a pointed alloy pellet is in order. I have shot and put down squirrels and rabbits with predator and rocket pellets out to 20 plus yards with this pistol. Head shots are a must if you want to drop them. Rabbits have thinner hides so heart and lung shots are fine with any pellet imo. I get complete pass through on rabbits so imo it would make a good rabbit hunting pistol under 25 yards with the correct shot placement. Make sure to use loc tite red on your scope base. I had two UTG scope bases fly off with blue loc tite. I applied red and it hasn't moved ever since. I. Put a tasco PDP2 on mine for price shot placement. I still try and use something to rest on or against when firing this pistol to make sure I hit my exact mark when hunting. Shot placement is key.
Things I liked: the gun is very accurate , and heavy but you get used to it , and I found out not to hold the recoil part while shooting .
Things I would have changed: maybe if the recoil grasp were internal
What others should know: its the most powerful gun if you check the specs on other similar models , cocking you need the extension that comes with it ,I think you'll be very happy with the gun ,I am.
