Absolutely Horrible trigger pull but if you know how to squeeze the trigger and not pull you will be fine.
The recoil is horrible but what do you expect?
Its deffiniy a good looking tacticool air rifle
below is a group of 4 and 1 stray thats 4 stackers !
second is 4 shots on steel double stackers on a 3 inch plate and a 4 inch plate all over 50-60 ft
If you don't own one than try one at this price point you would be hard pressed to find a high end air rifle that can out oerform this one.
Thanks AIR GUN DEPOT.
IF YOU CAN;T get air arms pellets than
J.B WOULD BE MY BEST NEXT PELLET Also at AIR GUN DEPOT
HOPE THIS HELPS
I am now having problems with the break barrel mechanism. It has a harsh metal on metal feel that seems like the power piston binding up. I'm not quite sure what it is but it doesn't feel right. According to the Black Ops website, the gun has a 1-year warranty. Which I have now registered for.
Overall, I'd buy another. I wanted to point out the potential flaws but the positives outweigh the negatives.
This is a big, handsome, heavy gun. Stock is subtantial and not empty feeling. Shoots and kicks like a mule. After I had cleaned a very dirty barrel, I gave it a good oiling, shot it.
Cracks like a 22 rifle... BANG! Smoked like one too, LOL. Worsened by the dieseling as the oil cleared through, I'm sure, but it did settle down after about 30 shots.
Cleaned it again. Sat down to sight it in.
Still struggling to get consistent groups, but early days; gun needs to settle down and using the supplied scope (which, by the way, is really OK - far superior to the trash you get on the basic Crosmans and the like). Will try some other pellets, too.
Amazingly good value for the money compared to other guns. The refurb is even better deal (but you take the risk).
Now, I got the spring 177. I understand that the build quality is poorer on the new gas powered ones (more power, less quality), and the new ones do not have the shoulder butt extension.
I have already shot about 30 rounds, and I have to say.... At 25 yards, it is dead accurate. My groupings have been incredible. One thing for sure, a better scope is already on the way. I mean, the scope that comes with it is fair, but not for longer range. If you are doing backyard shots, the scope is good. Very clear and accurate scope as well.
For the price, this is a great buy! It no doubt will offer hours of fun. I have yet to find a con on this rifle. I will post a further update as I get more familiar with it. If you are looking for a sharp looking, powerful hitting, and budget friendly air rifle.... Then this is a perfect match for you.
It gets high marks for coolness factor but that is really the only reason I can think of to buy this. I'm trying to sell mine on craigslist since I can't return it because I opened it up.
This rifle is heavy not great for carrying around in the woods. It is difficult to cock for anyone other than an adult. The pistol grip is a lot thicker than an AR15 and may not fit perfect in small hands. The rail mounts are nice because you can remove the Tripod and install a Laser, Flashlight or other options. GREAT sniper rifles for the price.
This is a heavy and cumbersome rifle. It is better as a bench gun than one you would take hunting. Because of the tripod however it could be a good field gun if you aren't too mobile.
I modify alot of my guns and have taken this gun apart. Inside it is identical to the Beeman RS2 although the spring seems a little stiffer. Because of this it is possible to use an RS2 barrel and convert this to a .22. It is an equally accurate rifle after doing that.
This is one of the better deals out there. Kudos to Airgun Depot for not price gouging like some other websites.
