Things I liked: Great price, wood stock and fun to shot. I think it may be hard for a child to cock, at least my wife finds it hard. I am thinking of getting another one for my workshop rodent control program.
Things I liked: Its power, which has been more than I had with a Red Ryder but then from BB gun to BB gun even of the same model it appears there are variances in power (fps)..With minor adjustment to elevation it is dead on accurate and serves my purposes in keeping pests out of my small yard.
Things I would have changed: I had the fore grip and stock refinished..couldn't stand that "orange" looking finish it came with and i am short man and even for me the stock could be longer.
What others should know: I think it is too hard to cock for a young person, harder than my Red Ryder. Mine was defective in that the door on the BB loading opening wouldn't stay shut.. Rather than return it I had a jury rigged O'ring fix to keep it closed..When i went to return it to the factory I found it to cost almost as much in shipping costs than a new Sheridan Cowboy ..So when this one breaks I will buy another the warranty is no good with the expenses involved. Quality Control should of caught this!
Things I liked: i have bought multi air guns from PA , love them all , great gifts for young kids and adult friends , i just bought my third sheridan cowboy for me , i've own bb guns since i was a kid and now retired i can plink from my back porch , i highly recommend this gun for kids growing up , gets them outside and good bonding with fathers on teaching gun safety , so good
Things I would have changed: i saw some complaints on the length of the stock , oh well , it made for kids , ok , as a adult i can live it , oh well , i've shot real guns with short stocks
What others should know: i highly recommend the copper bb's vs steel bb's

no scope mount available?
Does anyone know what a decidel reading is for the Sheridan cowboy?
This gun is quiet enough for shooting in an apartment
Can I shoot Gamo .177 cal lead round ball instead of steel BB's?
it would probably be too large for it. Remember BBs are less than 4.5mm in diameter
Since nobody answered my question I went ahead and tried Gamo lead round ball in my Sheridan Cowboy. I treated the gun like a single shot and found the balls shot well but some did jam in the barrel but I used a wood Dowling and rammed the ball back into the breach and fired again...the round balls are 1/2 gram or 8.2 grain and seemed to fit the barrel tighter than steel BB's because I don't think the velocity was much lower than withsteel BB's and the lead balls caused a bit more damage to the pop cans I was shooting at :) be sure to have 1/8" wood Dowling rod to clear an occasional jam, and try lead round ball in your Sheridan cowboy for a change from steel BB's.
