Very powerful and accurate once you get the scope zeroed in. Great Rifle to have fun with.
I really tried to get my $119 out of this good looking rifle. Once home I put on a UTG 3-9X32 AO Mil-dot from Airdepot.com. You will need an offset mount to accommodate the shortness of the Bug Buster scope and get comfortable eye relief. I used the Accushot One-PieceOffset. I tried a number of pellets and arrived at the JSB Exact Monster Diablo as the best for my needs. Crosman pointed were the most accurate, but I prefer to shoot the heavier JSB out of this 1,000 FPS air rifle.
Oh yeah, clean the barrel the very first thing that you do. I use about a dozen patches before it showed clean. There was a lot of grease in there. After cleaning pellets hit +14 inches higher than where I was zeroed before. No wonder out of the box accuracy was nonexistent and it was looking like a waste of $. After cleaning the barrel, putting on a new worthy scope and cinching all bolts, including the barrel pivot bolts, I get 3/8 groups with Crosman pointed at 20 yards, and 1/2 with JSB Monster.
The ease in which this rifle shoots and loads sold me and her but it was the accuracy that caught my attention. I have never had a gun easier to sight in with a scope. Using dome head pellets seem to suit this gun perfectly and will be the ammo my Wife will use in it from no on. I would like to add that the breakdown of this gun is very simple making it easy to service and keep clean. I am an Army Vet. and anyone who is, knows that a clean gun is a trustworthy gun. I can field strip this gun in less than five minutes. This is a great rifle for the price and I would recommend it to anyone who hunts small game or as I use it to run the Bears from the yard.
Ordering was easy and delivery could not have been more efficient. I recommend both Rifle and Company for your Air Rifle desires.
I purchased mine from a local farm supply store. The hardwood stock and mechanism have an excellent feel. The weight of the rifle is remarkable and, with a solid stance and firm grip, it tends to stay where you point it. The scope is of decent quality and appears to be made for small caliber rifles. The scope -rings- on the other hand need some fiddling to get them set solid. Be forewarned, this rifle shoots _HARD_ and I do mean hard! In fact, it shoots hard enough to make the scope slide around in the rings which tanks your sighting job every time you shoot. The same holds true for the mounting screws which keep the rifle mechanism in the stock. I highly recommend tightening the entire gun before, during and after breaking it in. During sight-in, take a moment to tighten the stock mounting screws and the scope rings every third shot or so. Believe me, I would have used less ammo to sight mine in if I had! Some may say this rifle is hard to cock and I would agree ONLY if this were a lower power rifle. This is a powerhouse of a gun and it needs strength to ready it to fire.
1) Tighten everything up before you sight it in,
2) Tighten scope rings on rifle and scope every few shots during break-in and sighting-in to keep it accurate,
3) Tighten rifle mechanism to stock mounts after shooting during break-in period or first 250 rounds.
Overall, I'm happy with the rifle's performance, fit and feel and has enough power to hunt game such as squirrel, rabbit, and raccoon
I have 6 years of military experience and beyond that have won my local field target club championship 6 straight years and have hand built a custom air gun specifically designed to find the absolute limit of airgun ranges. So I am well qualified to give advice.
The rifle is somewhat heavy but has great feel/balance.
CONS: I agree, the sights and safety on this rifle are made of plastic and give that "cheap" image. HOWEVER, if you are like me and take care of your weapons I don't see why this would be a problem. I have yet to try the scope but I'm very pleased with this purchase. As I said earlier, I did my homework and this rifle truly is a good product with a great value. This store was the cheapest I found it once I decided on the Ruger. You can't beat the customer service and knowledge I experienced, thanks! Lastly, the first 10-20 shots are LOUD! As in .22LR loud. Forewarn your neighbors if you have any!
Overall a great gun and a great price.
