Well, out of the box I could see the front sight appeared crooked to the receiver. I mounted the rear sight and it just confirmed it. The front sight was cocked a little off to the left. I read the manual, loaded a gas cartridge, and went out back to shoot it. When I held the gun up it looked even more crooked than I thought at first. A LOT. Then I realized the action was crooked frame. I'm not kidding. Crosman's assembly geniuses drilled and tapped the bottom of the action crooked. I contacted Airgun Depot about it, but have not heard anything back so far. I might have expected that from a $50-60 gun, but this is a $179 gun.
I am not sure where they got the 530 FPS speed from. It did 420 with a Crosman 7.9, and 440 with a Daisy 7.5.
It would seem loading would be easy, but the receiver is sized for a .22 pellet. A .177 tends to cock to one side as you try to gently push it to the pellet into the chamber with the probe.
It shoots about One Minute of Soda Can at 25 feet. I could consistently hit a soda can two handed at 25 feet, but not a smaller golf ball size wiffle ball. That was about as good as I expected really. I did not try it sandbagged.

Answer:Dovetail scopes can be mounted on the 2300T. This pistol is as accurate and more powerful than its expensive cousin the 1701P Silhouette PCP. Great buy.
