When I opened the box, first impressions are that this is a handsome target shooter with dark wood grips. One of the grips where your right thumb would wrap around and touch- wasn't sanded very well before it was varnished at the factory... no big deal... I have a piece of 150 grit and some tung oil, But then I noticed that the cast metal parts (the handle and the trigger guard and also the trigger itself) still have edges and were not really well finished at the factory milling stage- it is not a complicated step to grind the slag or the edge of rough- fitting cast parts where they join, before they get painted... or to polish the stamped metal trigger before it gets nickel plated! For the price, I truly didn't have insanely high expectations for fit and finish, but it's the little details like these that mildly disappoint my faith and support to specifically try to buy U.S. made products... but that's a different gripe of mine!
Tightening the 7/8" screw nut on the end of the barrel for replacing Co2 will need you to find something...(like the back edge of a butter knife, or the body of a house key) to tighten it. The grove is too big for a regular screwdriver- DON'T use that! It is "knurled" for grip, but you will NOT be able to do this with your fingers, and you need to tighten this cap REALLY WELL, or the Co2 won't puncture (as I found out with my first would-be shot!) You really almost need to use a freakin' pair of vise grips!
First shot was at a piece of 1x6 pine facia board, and at 50 feet, the pellet went right though!! Most shots lodged far enough into the wood, that you couldn't see them! Good power. These were crosman hollow pointed also. Pointed pellets would sail though! Now... Lets work on the sighting. There is no windage setting on the rear sight. (right and left) Only elevation. Mine consistently shoots 6" to the left at 100'... That can be translated to Precision, but not accuracy. I'm sure I can probably use pliers to bend the sight over a bit... URFFF!!!!!!!!!
I just need to be able to hit stuff from about 50 to 150 feet away. I want to make this my go-to-gun when I hear rustling in the branches and I'm hungry for some bushmeat!!
Easy to load. Only down side is the sights, not that good. Also the trigger pull is pretty hard. Other than that, great pistol.
