Air gunners get into PCP's for their ability to fire shot after shot and the Stormrider does not disappoint. Simply load up the magazine and slide it into the breech, where it clips into place magnetically. With 9 shots in .177 and 7 in .22, cycle to a new round with a quick flick of the bolt action. Once you charge up the 200 BAR (2900 psi) cylinder you can send rounds downrange at 1,050 fps (.177) and 900 fps (.22). Additionally, if you want to shoot one shot at a time, a single-shot tray is included. To sight up your shots, use the included open sights or mount your own optics to the 11mm dovetail rail.

Everything else about this rifle I have to say it's excellent. Accuracy is excellent right out of the box, bought it with the pump, the pump is a waste of time and money, I ended up getting the Nomad compressor,1st Generation, that was money well spent. For the price, I'm considering getting another one.
that as long as not using it in an enclosed space like a garage. Every PCP that I own is the same way regardless so no point in complaining about any particular
one. I find it shoots more than accurate for my 25 yard and under distances. Mine is in the .177 caliber chosen for several reasons including I already have a PCP
in .22 caliber and wanted a .177 repeater. The wood of the stock is top shelf triple A+++ grade very stunning to the eye and to the touch. As I have only had it
a short time I have not opened it up for a careful minor lube since this tends to slow down the break in slicking up of parts like the cocking but I will later on.
The bolt action has already gotten smoother. I found a small learning curve to working the bolt action when using the multi shot magazine with pointed pellets.
If the rifle is pointed downward the pellet points seem to occasionally want to keep the magazine from advancing to the next shot. Holding level or upwards avoids
this possible mishap. The .177 has serious power and quick flight time. For some of my purposes I prefer to only pump to 600 psi shooting down to 400 psi as
indicated on the tiny rifle gauge delivering 700 to 600 fps for a full magazine. Recharging might take 9 or 10 pumps. The gun just says quality all around. I have
guns in my collection that are not keepers. This one is a keeper. A lot of people fret over triggers. Everything I shoot has untouched factory triggers and has never
affected accuracy for me. There is some tiny side to side movement on this one that a couple of tiny shim washers would get rid of for those that want to tweak
it that much. For me the trigger action is perfect as it is. I will probably take a small finish file to the squared edges of the trigger as they are distinct to a caressing
touch. Anybody who complains about not being able to figure out how to load the magazine should probably not use a manual pencil sharpener. It is too simple
to be confused on. The saying about tools is buy once cry once referring to paying more for quality. With this gun you get the quality without the crying. With all
the guns I have owned I must say this is one of the better ones at a much lower price. I have used the sights on the gun and also a laser which is handy for
shooting under darker conditions. I don't push air guns beyond 25 yards so I really have no need for a scope but this gun would look good with one and I am
sure make good use of it too. It is a winner.
For mounting the scope I used the:
Leapers Accushot 1" Rings, High, 9.5-11.5mm Dovetail
I had to remove the rear sight, but that's ok. My eyes don't quite have the focus so using the sight's would have been a stretch.
