Things I liked: Aesethics and design concept. Vortex Piston is extremely smooth after break-in. When held properly, the felt recoil is almost non-existent in both configurations. Quattro Trigger. Handling characteristics. I have now shot almost 1400 pellets, and the cocking effort is a less. Love the power.
Things I would have changed: Factory Sights when set-up for the rifle configuration do not have the same zero for the pistol configuration (adjustable butt-stock removed). In fact, I was not able to get the pistol configuration zeroed. It shot very high and to the right. I bottomed-out the rear sight and raised the front sight to maximum, but to no avail. The windage required going left-of-center two-thirds. I first shot it in the rifle configuration and zero was within the sights adjustment ranges. I shot it as a pistol with the adjustable butt-stock attached, but retracted, and got almost the same zero as the rifle shot with the butt-stock positioned to my shoulder. Removing the butt-stock to shoot in the true pistol configuration requires a major front sight height adjustment. I ended up disassembling the adjustment parts and permanently remounted the blade portion above the base by another 1/4"+. I made this change so I could shoot the pistol configuration with open sights.
What others should know: The instruction manual Fig. 3 details do not show the proper location of the adjustment bolts. As shown Fig.3 presently depicts the configuration of the Quattro Trigger for the rifles. The Mod# 25 Supertact Rfle/Pistol layout has the bolts in back of the trigger. Note that there is no safety shown in Fig.3. Holding this airgun in too firm a grip or pressed too tightly against the shoulder does not allow the anti-recoil to work properly, hence erratic shot placement. All piston power plants, spring or gas, require consistency of technique. I now use a Red Dot Scope for Shooting with the rifle configuration. I adapted the scope mount set-up to allow for easy removal and re-mount while maintaining the zero. This dual sight set-up (open vs. scope) allows the use of both airgun configurations (pistol vs. rifle) with equal accuracy and use results. I made these modifications to get the most potential from the airguns design. I can also use the rifle with adjustable power scopes.
Things I liked: Bad azz looks. Unique, compact lightweight. Very powerful for such a small gun. Handy size and easy to carry by the pistol grip in one hand. Great to take out to the barn to pop some rats or mice.
Things I would have changed: Include a cocking assist tube. A little pricey for what it is/does.
What others should know: This thing is a little difficult to mount optics on. Not great for target work but is lightweight and great for plinking cans and such. The sights work well and have a long range of adjustment, The gun has visible barrel droop right out of the box. It has no effect on its performance with the iron sights, it may require scope shimming or a droop compensator mount if you chose optical sights.
Things I liked: The idea of having a compact and portable air rifle.
Things I would have changed: Lower the weight by a lot. Make the iron sights thinner and make them out of steel. At this price, the quality control and accuracy should be a lot better.
What others should know: Don't buy this. I bought 10 different pellets trying to get this to get some kind of group. Pellets go in the general area but no better. The first one I got had a bent barrel and came with a defective o ring to seal the barrel when firing. Dealt with customer service and got a new one. Still doesn't group. Can't return it, so kind of stuck with it.

What is the muzzle thread count (# per thread), to attach the cacking aid?
1/2 - 20 tpi RH standard airgun threads
Is the rear sight removable? I'd like to mount a UTG 3-12 x 32 Bugbuster side focus scope using BKL one-piece scope mount offset to rear.
Yes. You can remove the rear sight.
Has nobody checked the velocity on this Carbine Model vortex 25? If it was with done with non-lead pellets like the RWS HyperMAX 5.2 gr, the energy with the spec @700 FPS is 5.4 FPE. This is the same energy the Spring .22 Mod 25 produces. So, even if it produces this energy with a 10.5 gr CP pellet, the velocity would be only 480 FPS. Is this what I can expect?
The spring/gas piston will be the same in both 22 ,and .177 cal.
