Full disclosure; I only had this rifle for about two weeks before a friend talked me into selling it to him so I did not have a chance to test some of my thoughts about this rifle. I will very likely purchase another one soon; it is that much fun.
In the couple weeks I had the rifle I did not get a chance to test the trigger on my pull scale. I was concerned because I had seen reviews where they said the trigger was pulling in excess of 8 pounds. It might be but oddly it did not feel at all heavy to me for this type of double action trigger (if you didn't already realize it this is not a true semi-auto; it is a double action trigger equipped rifle). It was accurate well within the limits of what I would expect from this design and being CO2 driven (lots of velocity variation with CO2). And again, the darn thing is just plain fun.
I may have missed the information in the manual but I did not see the instructions to use the probe on the little enclosed tool to seat the pellets all the way forward in the belt. In case I didn't miss it and that instruction is missing from the very abbreviated owners manual; lay the belt face down on a flat surface and use the probe or other tool to seat your pellets all the way into the belt. Before I realized this necessity I had jams twice and had to use a rod to push pellets out of the breach. Also well hidden in the instructions is the fact that that little tool is used to adjust elevation on the open sights by screwing the front post in or out. There is no elevation adjustment on the rear sight.
I was concerned over a video review that I saw where the reviewer was reporting velocity up to over 600fps with lead pellets and thought it would make a small critter rifle. I tested it over my chronograph which has been tested against another chrony and established as accurate and the highest velocities I recorded with 7+ grain pellets were in the mid to high 400fps range. Personally, I consider this too low for reliable small game hunting. And unless you have converted to PCP, I would be very concerned about the big drop in velocity in very cold weather. If the hammer spring and valve can handle higher pressures from a regulated air cylinder this could prove to be a great field gun and if I do purchase another one I will definitely try running it with an 1100 or 1200psi tank. That may very well make it a nice little hunter but I have serious doubts about this rifle for hunting with CO2.
Ultimately, in my experience, and that of my buddie who now owns the rifle, a very nice, impressive little rifle at a great price point.
ITS A PAIN TO LOAD,AND YOU NEED TO USE THE SEATING TOOL WORKS GREAT WITH WADCUTERS AND DOMED HP'S,VERY ACCURATE. PUT A GREEN DOT CROSS HAIRS 3-9X30 BUSHNEEL SCOPE WITH ILLUMINATION. ACCUERATE OUT TO 30 YARDS WITH THE 11.2 GRAIN RWS HOLLOW POINTS. THEY DUE MAKE A SUPPRESOR WITH THE BARREL. THEN YOUR LOOKING AT ANOTHER $125.00. IT IS IN THE DECIBEL RANGE OF ABOUT 89 DECBL'S!VERY BACK YARD FRIENDLY AND WITH THE WADDCUTERS I TOOK OUT A OPOSSUM AT ABOUT 30 FEET. HEAD SHOT AND IT WAS VERY HUMAINE KILL. I BOUGHT THE TANK SO I CAN FILL IT WITH MY PCP 90 CUBIC INCH TANK, OR HAND PUMP.
Shooting it is fun. Signature is fairly loud for the caliber and actually has a lot of 'smoke' exiting the barrel with each round. Trigger is not delicate. With about a 7 lb. pull, it isn't touchy, and isn't very smooth. Lots of give. Some may find that good.
The overall weight is not too heavy, and well balanced.
Not sure why the advertisement for it states .22 cal pellets... This isn't true. Fortunately I have plenty of .177 ammo stocked.
For the price, this gun is worth the purchase.
The experience I had with shipping was terrible, had issues. Airgundepot made a bad situation into a good one. Craig helped make it so. Great customer service.
It came in a nice box with heavy duty foam to store it,they only give you 1 mag..So the extra Mags are recommended..Some things they dont tell you about this .If you are using mulitply mags..After you finish a mag and you drop it to load another,the mcx must be pointing up and then clip loaded so it is seated and engages correctly.If you try and load a fresh mag with gun pointing straight out or downward,the safety feature will lock up the trigger even if the safety is off..then u have to pull the clip and either dry fire the gun before u slide in other mag..Or simply point gun upward and load the mag.. ,but this is made with this safety feature.They want the gun pointing upward to load fresh mags
The mcx is one nice replica of the real sigs.the weight feels similar,as well as trigger pull.I found this to be the best made pellet rifle i have ever used period.
I ran 700 plus rounds thru this and had only one jam.due to a bad pellet ,my tip when loading your strips for the mag make sure when you set them in with the tool you have no bad pellets out of the box..
Out of the box the open sites at 20 yards were just about dead on ..Love the trigger feel myself..The weight is well balanced and easy to handle with minor adjustmeants to the front grip for your liking.Box says 750 fps..I dont have a way of measuring it..but it was all of 700 if i had to guess right up to the 5 mag..On 1 90gr co2 i get 7 mags..note 30 rounds in each..Thats 210 shots.towards the end of last mag i brough it in about 2 feet to targets and was still banging the bulls
.Again this rifle is well made,nice replica..You even have to pull back the hammer to engage bolt before shooting..I used remington .177 4.5 mm 7.9 gr pointed pellets and that were outstanding..They are the same as the crosman prem pointed
.For co2 i used Sig sauer brand 90g.The grouping was in the half inch range out of the box.no adjustmeants.
All metal reciever,alum,shround and surpessor is metal,just about all metal except synth stock,and handle is like Hard comfortable grip,the front handle is a lightweight durable pvc grip..
Over all love this pellet rifle,out of the box grab one tou wont be disappointed well worth every penny
Thoroughly enjoying this rifle
