I purchased the .22 Model. With this gun at 10 Meters you get a single ragged hole with RWS Hobby Wadcutter pellets. The diopter sights are easy to get used to and work well.

Pros
Gun balances extremely well in your hands when standing. The airgun is generally not pellet picky and does very well with lead free pellets too. Accuracy at 10-20 Meters is awesome. Have shot it out to 30-40 yards also to hit cans without any trouble. I like that this airgun has a degassing tool so you can purge what is left of the CO2 without having to dry fire until pressure is low enough to remove the cap.

This is an excellent entry level competion air rifle if not more than that. Extremely accurate.

Pros
Very well balanced, light weight, sights are great except in low light.

Cons
This is an outstanding rifle however the sights are a little hard to see in lower light situatons, however you really don't want to shoot it in lower light anyway which is why I gave it a five star review.

I'm very, very new to this, actually first air rifle, I don't count the BB gun I had as a kid. I'm very familiar with firearms, having shot IDPA, IPSIC, skeet, sporting clays and 3 gun events. Having alway wanted to get into biathlons and thought this rifle would be an excellent practice rifle. The trigger is excellent, for a $200 rifle I was impressed. The sights, which I am still getting use to, is in my opinion adequate and was no illusion would be anything but adequate. Accuracy, is in my opinion adequate, mainly because I am still getting familiar with everything about this rifle and trying to find out what pellets this rifle likes. I think it's an outstanding rifle for $200. Fit and finish seems adequate for a Chinese made rifle. I am throughly addicted to air rifles. Even with all the perceived "faults" I still think this is a 5 star rifle because of the "fun value".

Pros
Excellent trigger.

Cons
The sights, adequate for a $200 entry level rifle.

I'm just a casual shooter, but I like accuracy. This rifle was a tack driver right out of the box. Seems to do well with many different pellets. Decent trigger and sights. All in all, very satisfying!

Pros
Great feel when shouldered. Excellent price point.

Cons
None.

I can consistently hit quarter sized groups or less from 10 meters with this rifle. It is very, very repeatable. My only gripe is the peep sight. Once zeroed in there is absolutely no more travel down and even then it consistently hits about 10mm high at 10 meters. I'll be looking for a replacement sight soon for this one as the quality on this one is not quite up to par.

Pros
Very consistent

Cons
Mediocre peep sight

I had no idea how much I would love this gun, I was apprehensive at the 2 co2 bulbs but sure enough as others have said 0-70 is right on. In a 30m it is dead on and a vety comfortable trigger at sub 3lbs OTBx. ACCURATE! And co2 powered . The power drop occurs at bulls-eye no idea co2 is low. Next shot is 2 inches low. Just like that. No guessing. For both noob airguners to experienced it will be liked. Stock is fantastic. I have an Olympic Biathlon .22lr and the feel is very similar. Sighting is just like my Biathlon. I would recommend mastering it b4 getting is so, a scope. It is scope ready. Heartedly recommend to a friend, or other.

Pros
Accuracy, tightness, looks, trigger, fun!

Cons
None

Before I purchased the AR2078A, I averaged 32 of 40 on a competition target. I am now shooting 38 of 40. The accuracy is phenomenal. This is about the third or fourth reconditioned gun I have bought from this site. You guys do a great job. Updated 3/29/2017: I had previously written a review of this gun and now I need to revise and extend my remarks. Bad news first. The reconditioned gun I originally purchased failed due to some type of internal valve problem. I contacted Airgun Depot, explained the problem and they sent me a shipping label to return what had quickly become one of my favorite guns. Rather than attempt to rebuild it a second time, they put together a new one for me and sent it off in the mail. In about a week, I was shooting again as though nothing had ever happened. Service like that deserves recognition. I will continue to buy my guns here. Funny thing is, when I reviewed the gun the first time I mentioned that I could not shoot more than 70-75 shots before losing enough power to become inaccurate. With the new one, I can shoot a 40 round target, put the gun away, come back tomorrow, and shoot another 40 rounds with a little power to spare. Note: I have now shot my first perfect target in competition 40 of 40.Thank you Airgun Depot.

Pros
Smooth and highly accurate. Updated 3/29/2017: Still smooth, accurate and easy to handle.

Cons
Approximately 70-75 shots per two CO2 cartridges. Too much for one 40 round target and not enough for two 40 round targets. Updated 3/29/2017: There are not enough hours in the day to shoot this gun as much as I would like

Target rifles are expensive. This is not. A great way to see if target shooting is for you. The pull is a bit short, but aftermarket adjustable butt plates are available. Sights are not perfect, but this gun with sights costs less than just a good set of target sights, and the sights do work, but are not perfect in repeatability. The rifle will not win any Olympgames, but it will allow you to enter target shooting at a very low cost. .020 5 shot groups are with in the rifle 's capabilities. It will take you years to get good enough to need a better rifle. No rail for a palm stop nor any sling mount. These are easy up grades you will want to add. The best part is, if target shooting doesn't work for you, the upper receiver is grooved for 11mm tip off rings. This will make an excellent small bird rat, and rabbit precision hunting rifle. Mount a 4-16x40 mil dot on it and hitting a rabbit's brain at 40 yards will be easy.

Pros
Price After market accessories available Accurate User friendly

Cons
Should come with at least some butt spacers. A rail for mounting palm rests/stop, and sling would be nice.

Is the front site removable ?

asked Brian from USA

Yes.

Ryan from USA

It looks like a split mounting clamp with one screw at the center. If so, you should be able to loosen the screw and remove or even rotate the sight down out of the way...kunk

Larry from USA

no sure. but, it looks like a split clamp design. if you loosen the screw, you may be able to remove the sight or even rotate it down and out of the way...kunk

Larry from USA

Is this rifle really worth the $189.99 and without any modifications, "out of the box" how tight are the groups and will it "hold" that pattern long term?? Reality check, how many shots per CO2 cartridge?

asked Keith B

It is worth even more. Shoots on par with Crossman Challenger. An adjustable butt is available and helps fit the rifle to the shooter better, as stock it has a short pull. 50 shots per 2 cartridge fill. Rear sight is good and works, but it is no $275 sight. I use mine for teaching kids to shoot 10 M target. The rifle is more than capable of .020" 5 shot groups CTC. Very accurate, very user friendly. Very quiet. Mine likes R 10 Match 8.2 gr RWS pellets best. Some have had luck with Daisy wadcutters and some with Crossman wadcutters. I found my second best pellet was R 10 7.0 gr and Beeman Match wadcutters were third best. It is great for young people right out of the box, but for larger people add the after market adjustbutt plate, palm rest and sling attachment and a target sling. The next best target rifle would be the Crossman Challenger with sights. That's an additional $400+ dollars. And it doesn't shoot any tighter.

Greg from USA

I coached a JRAF ROTC team that used this rifle, 8 of them. I do not believe that you can buy any rifle for three times the price that will shoot a tighter group. All eight of the rifles will shoot a one hole group at 10 meters off a rest. You can't ask for more. of course you have to use GOOD pellets, junk will not work. We used the adapter kit and charged the rifles with a bulk CO2 tenk.

James from USA

I have only had the rifle for 2 days, but I think it is. It uses 2 cartridges at a time and I would conservatively estimate a good 80+ shots. It is light, well balanced and easy to point. The grip feels good in the hand and the comb allows a good comfortable cheek weld. The rifle is surprisingly easy to load for a bolt action single. The action itself is all metal and very well made. The sights are in Chinese but they turn in the same directions as usual. The rifle is very accurate and is shooting good groups for me so far. I will try to upload some photographs. Yesterday I wrote that the safety does not work. I was mistaken. The safety works just as it should. I just had to push it into the safe position with a bit more force than I am used to. So far, I would give this rifle top marks. If it continues to perform as it has I would be tempted to say it's the Deal of the Year.

Andrew from USA

Can you fit the Ninja reg. hpa bottle to the model gun?

asked Patrick

Yes

Scott from USA

asked Richard from USA
