Things I liked: Right now I am using the 180 gr round nose & seem to do well but still have more testing to do with other pellets. Want to try out some homemade rounds from some friends of mine, I did get some info from a friend that he downed a deer @ 90 yards using the 140 gr semi-wadcutter. I did a crony & only did one set of High power shots, I got 4 shots on high using the 180 gr round nose, (1) 663 (2) 686 (3) 658 (4) 610 on low power & after 20 rounds I got (1) 698 (2) 690 (3)672 4)645 I could have pulled the 5th shot but was happy with the 4 I got & most likely the 5th would have been in the 615 range at most.

Things I would have changed: Trigger is really heavy, Very bad @ high power & would be nice if different springs were available to cut the 6 plus lb trigger pull down some. I do have some problem with setting gun on low or high power, If you have @ low power & try to pull too high you have to decock the gun & then pull back all the way, to move to low power from high you just have to hold the cocking arm & ease it to low power, be careful when doing this if you don't hold the cocking arm right you will end up shooting your round off. I tried it without any ammo in gun first to see how it handles on the change from high to low.

What others should know: I added a AT scope that I had from another gun & although I had to remove the back sight I have to say it works well since this will be mostly a short-range gun from 50 - 75 yards max. This gun is great with ammo supplied from Pyramyd Air but there is other ammo available if you check around, I wouldn't use anything higher than 190 gr in this gun.

Things I liked: It is a beast. Mine likes the 200 gr hp. I bought it a few years ago. Had it tuned by will p. I can get great groups at 35 yards. Lots of power and hits like a hammer.

Things I would have changed: I've owned this gun for almost 10 years and my only complaint is the stock. The front stock is akward and not comfortable. It is impossible to put sling on it. I would like to see a longer stock that is skinnier.

What others should know: The more you shoot it the smother it gets. The accuracy gets better too

Things I liked: Light weight. Smaller air volume so easier to fill with hand pump. Can be tuned to get more power than the single tube.

Things I would have changed: Sling swivels installed.

What others should know: I bought this and the hill pump at the same time. Yesterday i filled it and it had 1000 psi because i got the ten shots for ten dollars. After I pressurized the hose with ten pumps it took 115 pumps to bring it up to 2900 psi. I sited it in at 30 yards with the 143 grain round balls. I weigh 200 pounds so it was not bad at all filling it up. After three or four shots I refill it. I am going to using this gun to hunt deer here in Mo. It is one on the few states you can hunt deer with a air rifle over 40 caliber.

  • Darin from USA asked:

    So been looking at big bore airguns but I only have a hand pump. How difficult is this to pump up by hand?

    • Mark from USA:

      You can pump the gun up in approx 25 min. It is hard work.

  • Dan from USA asked:

    I will ask in Q&A vernacular so everyone understands: why dose the manufacturer give a raing of boer sizes? Dose he knot no what size boer he is making? It wood be nic to no wat slugs to purchase ahead of tim.

    • Dwan from USA asked:

      • Mark from USA:

        Gun fills at 3000 psi max fill pressure. Yes some kind of high pressure air fill system is needed.
