Things I liked: On target right out of the box - feels balanced in the hand and trigger has nice pull. comes with two mags for loading pellets holding eight pellets each, at 10 meters will place those pellets in a nickle size or smaller space. Scope works well and has a clear site picture no fogginess. works well with RSW superdomes .22
Things I would have changed: Forearm grip has a little play do to the fact it covers the CO2 cylinder but is not noticeable when in use - price would go up to correct this minor flaw.
What others should know: Great for plinking do to the eight round Mag.
Things I liked: Great design and well made. Very accurate. I sighted it in for 90 feet and I may of gotten lucky but aimed high and picked off a squirrel 300 feet away. Without the scope the rear adjustable fiber optic ramp sight is nice and the front sight can be adjusted for windage. (I haven't had to touch the front sight yet.)
Things I would have changed: Better cover for the CO2 cartridge it kind of jiggles around, could have made it a more precision fit . Like to see it in wood rather than composite it might be heaver but would be really nice. I would by another if they ever make one in wood.
What others should know: All in all, it's a nice rifle.
Things I liked: Very impressive piece of engineering, excellent quality at a reasonable price. My combo came with the sight already mounted, and right out of the box it shot extremely accurately to 50 ft. Even with a steady crosswind the Walther sight could be adjusted well enough for this gun to hit cherry-size targets at 60 ft. The action is superb, very tight and reliable. I am thinking about buying the base model with open sights for competition shooting,
Things I would have changed: As others have noted, the hollow stock makes the gun too light. I solved this problem easily by squeezing a 10-oz tube of silicon into the stock. The gun now has just the right amount of heft.
What others should know: Extra magazines a must! Everyone I know, including the ladies, loves to shoot this piece. Regarding ammo, I have used all types and makes of pellets and have not found any significant difference between them. In the cold I can shoot one magazine accurately before the pressure drops.
