The scope that came with the rifle went on a cheap .177 Beeman 500. I use a 3-12X40 AO mil dot Barska on this rifle. This allows much better pellet placement, and allows shooting rats to jack rabbits.
If one chooses to use a lighter higher velocity pellet then you will need to sight the scope and adjust accordingly. That is WHY THE SCOPE HAS adjusting mounts on the side! It is not a decoration.
Always make sure all fittings (barrel and scope) are snug.
For the different barrels I use:
.177 Crossman destroyer EX: great all around pellet
.177 Premier ultra magnum heavy 10.5 gr. Fantastic groupings, I can get 20 shots within a quarter. Again my rifle is sighted for heavy pellets
.22 Benjamin PCP discovery heavy pellets, 14.3 grams, hard hitting due to heavy hollow point pellet head. Will push through a 1/2 inch fence post with collateral damage on exit (nickel sized) from expansion
.22 Super-H-Point by RWS. heavy pellet, 14.2 grams, the weight is in the skirt as opposed to the head, A lot of force in the back of the pellet cause incredible expansion from this hollow point pellet. 1/2 inch fence post will have up to a quarter sized collateral damage on exit. This is my favorite pellet for a .22
Very accurate once rifle is sighted to accommodate both of these heavy pellets. Groupings within a quarter resulting in a destroyed target after 10 to 15 shots at 20 yards.
Why do I prefer heavy pellets with maximum damage?
Answer, Coyotes. I have had two pets ripped apart by coyotes. Where I live one cannot use firearms to control coyotes because you may end up shooting a neighbor. However air guns/rifles are permitted to "Harass" these aggressive canines.
Scope needs to be sighted every time if you switch to different pellets. You can not shoot a lightweight high velocity pellet followed by a heavy pellet and expect the same results. That is common sense and not really a con or a pro but something any avid shooter should know. Again COMMON SENSE!
It takes a clean barrel to launch an accurate shot. A light coat of oil is a must too. You must not hold it tight when you shoot,
The trigger is adjustable, for what it is a spring gun its not bad.
I am shooting a dime 5 out of 6 at exactly 20 Yards(66 Feet) with a half decent rest. with the 22 bbl.
I give it 4 stars as the open sights are sloppy, I took em off.... jury is still out on the scope. OK so far.

My only issue is that it needed to be disassembled and reassembled with loctight. The scope is decent but should be upgraded to see the real potential of this rifle. I've eliminated all the gophers, rodents, and rabbits! Soda cans are popped at 100 yds in 20 to 30 miles per hour winds with .22's all day!
I like the dual caliber its worth every penny.the cocking is a little hard but its worth the effort.it also is very loud and it vibrates a little

Answer:Case it comes in is very great! it can act like the backpack you would like to carry it in. It depends on the size of the back pack but this gun can be a little heavy to keep on your back at all times.
