Things I liked: Looks great, yummy trigger feel, perfect safety placement and action, easy cocking. Light recoil and reasonable back yard power level. Might be accurate. If you're going to scope it you'll probably be happy.

Things I would have changed: Sights didn't work for me at all. Rear sight design is floppy, front sight is a glow-worm with no obvious way to replace it.The fiber-optics did not match up with the iron sights (if they were leveled the front post stuck up above the rear sight line). The fiber spots would behave differently as the light changed, requiring further adaptation. The final fix was to tape over them, but the floppy rear sight was still too inaccurate. Two or three shots would hold tight, then the group would shift on some random vector. Tapping the sight before firing helped a little. Spring was crunchy but that might have settled out in time, or maybe it just needed some goo.

What others should know: I really wanted to like this gun. I think the trigger is exceptional, but the first stage was long and transition was indistinct so I went to adjust it and there was no screw. Oops. The shot grouplet pattern made me think the gun might be pretty accurate, but I was never able to confirm that. There was a chip in the metal inside the breech seal and rough machining on the dovetail. So I returned it. But I gave it four stars because I think it might be good with a scope. I saw it as an iron sight gun, and if they ever get rid of the current sights (or even just make the front sight replaceable) I might try again. I doubt they all have the defects (other than the sights) and the design is otherwise quite nice.

Things I liked: Everything seemed perfect until I started shooting it. I couldn't get better than 1" at 10 meters and couldn't do better than 2" at 20. It also wouldn't hold the same point of impact for the groups I shot. One group would be normal then out of no where it would shoot 2" lower. I tightened the stock screws and cleaned the barrel but accuracy didn't improve. So I sent it back and purchased a weihrauch hw30s. The HW30 shoot sub 1" at 20m and 1/4" groups at 10m.

Things I would have changed: All the pellets I had fit very loose in the breech

Things I liked: The Build quality is very nice. The trigger is excellent. I like plain iron sights but the ones here are useable. I bought this rifle for a ten year old and it is just right. The cocking effort is light, the rifle itself is not too heavy. Excellent youth rifle or an all day plinker for an adult.

Things I would have changed: Nothing

What others should know: The one I got was very inaccurate. I'm used to an air rifle taking some time to break in but after 2000 pellets more or less the accuracy not getting any better. I tried every pellet in my collection, cleaned the barrel, checked the screws nothing helped. I changed the scope to see if that was an issue but it wasn't At ten yards rested the best groups were around 2" with some wild flyers with the best pellet. At twenty yards it was hard to hit soda cans consistently. Pyramyd is an excellent vendor and glad that I bought it there.
