Things I liked: Very accurate, well made, good value rifle. Also, when I first charged the rifle it would lose 500psi overnight, so I contacted Crosman and they immediately sent out a replacement. However, during the next few days I was able to get the charge port to reseat itself and that cured the leak problem. So I returned the replacement rifle to Crosman - no shipping charges to me either way. Crosman did an exceptional job standing behind this rifle.
Things I would have changed: Upgrade options for better sights, metal front sight rail, greater adjustability for the cheek piece and butt stock, a little more detail in the manual concerning care and maintenance. I purchased the PA Ultimate package which came with rifle, sights, a Benjamin hand pump (works well, good exercise for an old guy), a pair of shooting glasses, a Foster quick disconnect, H&N Match Heavy pellets, a package of targets and a soft gun case (this competition rifle and sights deserve a hard case, which is what I thought I was getting - my error). In hindsight, the Foster, glasses, and gun case are of no value to me so I would recommend carefully considering whether the package deals really suit your needs. Also, I would like to see PA put together a competition package deal that would offer discounts on additional equipment options.
What others should know: This rifle is becoming more popular with high school 10 meter shooting teams and it takes an exceptional shooter (Olympic level?) to out-shoot this gun. I will be using it in some Golden age competitions and I'm pretty sure it will always shoot better than I can! I have been trying to find the pellet it likes best but so far none have shown a significant difference. So far my Crosman Premier Match Grade have been shooting as well as Qiang Yuan. Obviously I need someone better behind the trigger!
Things I liked: The feel of the rifle, accuracy, the ability to adjust the stock, but most of all the fact that the rifle has Gage in it to preclude the guess work of the amount of remaining charge.
Things I would have changed: Lower the charging handle for less cumbersome reloading.
What others should know: Be prepared to purchase an appropriate air-refill fitting, as this air chamber/cylinder is not the basic CO2 refiller adapter.
Things I liked: Been shooting it a couple of weeks and it has worked beautifully. Like most rifles (.22, .223, etc) you have to try different ammunition/pellets to see which one gives the best groups. So far I am very pleased with my rifle.
Things I would have changed: I would like to see a place on the rifle to store the Allen wrench used to adjust the stock.
What others should know: Remember safety first. Shoot well and shoot often. Invite or introduce others to the shooting sports. You will enjoy it even more!

Does it come with the new CDPT1 sight?
Does this air rifle need a C02 Cartridge and to be filled with PCP air both together or is it a either or PCP or C02 air rifle? And does it not come in .22 cal? If it does come in .22 or .25 why is it only showing the .177cal ?
HPA or Co2 can be used just not both together , one or the other. Only comes in .177 .
Can a sling be added to this rifle?
Sling swivels could be added.
To fill your PCP gun:
