The hardwood Monte Carlo stock includes a slightly raised cheekpiece that is so unobtrusive that it's ambidextrous! The dependable breakbarrel mechanism is smooth and easy to cock. The famous Rekord trigger is the standard by which all other triggers are measured and can be adjusted to suit your needs. Easily add a scope on the 11mm dovetails; accepts a vertical scope stop pin.
Field target, plinking, spinners and paper targets are perfect for this caliber.
The R9 is a lighter more manageable version. Shooting steel field targets at 27 yards using .177 CP 10.5 gr pellets is absolutely satisfying with the R9. I put a Nikon 2-7X 32mm scope on it after using the iron sights. The iron sights are great like all HW sights, but you'll want a scope beyond 30 yards for sure.
I ended up with wavy light wide grain wood--unusual for beech and stained light; unusual again. Cocking and recoil are surprisingly lower than expected. Noise is too.
This gun covers best all good things in one rifle.
Easy to cock and hits hard. I also own a Air Arms S500 in.22 but fir short yardages I prefer the Beeman. You can spend more for a quality springer but you don't have to with the Beeman.
It likes Baracuda Match 10.65 grain pellets. If your don,t have one of these you are missing out on a great rifle. GET IT NOW!
The gun was dis assembled to fit size requirementfor international shipment, was delivered and received in pristine condition due to meticulous packaging for the the long journey.
Good job, Airgun Depot.
