The scope is great ! & the rifle is a straight shooter. I like the trigger & Recoil is nothing, & it is pretty darn quiet for a 22 cal pellet traveling at around 900 FPS. The check rest is pretty sweet as well.
I am looking forward to getting this out in the woods. Since i have only had it for such a short time....this review will be updated after i have broken er in. The only negative things i can think of to say...is the opening in the stock is a tad small....as i do not have overly large hands & it is a little snug around my thumb knuckle. Also....i would like a sling, maybe i can rig something up. It IS a little barrel heavy....no biggy, i suppose that is because the barrel is shrouded to help silence it.
Ok... im Back with an update :) ... This is the day after i received the rifle....1st let me backtrack.
I was hired to exterminate a horde of red & gray tree rats that has taken over a house & the surrounding forest. Years of the Lady of the house over feeding them caused their population to explode....now they are in the house.....chewing away. So....i have allot of work to do & got at it this morning.
It was very warm & humid in the Northeast this morning... my digital weatherman is showing 92% humidity......Dark clouds rolled in & a thunderstorm broke loose. An hour or so later the rain stopped...so i set out as it was perfect hunting conditions...the moist soft ground made for silent stalking.
I took off the scope lens cover & cranked up the range to around 50 yards & broke the barrel & loaded a round. I made my way down the trail....my strategy.....is to start from the outside in the woods.....Read more ›
Pros: nitro-piston is quiet and smooth. The NPSS is accurate and has plenty of power for our uses.
Cons: It is heavy - our's weighs apprx 8.5 lbs with 3-9x40 Centerpoint scope. It also seems that more of the weight is out over the barrel making it difficult to hold steady while hunting something like a chipmunk. We had to purchase a shooting stick to help with this, but that only does so much.
To us, the cocking effort is not as easy as some represent it to be. My youngest, a 7th grader who plays on his Jr High School basketball, has a very difficult time cocking it. I can feel it stress my elbow when I cock it.
We also own a Stoeger X5, which is lighter, easier to cock, and as accurate. But you would expect this from a .177 at about 800fps. The Stoeger is a fun, user-friendly little weapon, but it is what it is.
Overall, other than the weight & somewhat difficult cocking, this is a good rifle. We nicknamed it The Beast. I have ordered a Gamo Big Cat with a BSA 4-16x40 scope for my 13 year-old.
