I bought this gun to mess around with (and to take out the evil squirrels/sparrows in my backyard) and so far I like it. Updates to this review are below.
IMPORTANT: YOU CANNOT SEE THE "VISIBLE" BB MAGAZINE IF THE SCOPE IS ATTACHED, AS IT MUST BE ATTACHED ON TOP OF THE MAGAZINE WHERE THE RAILS ARE LOCATED. You may want to purchase some sort of offset or riser to attach toward the front of the rails as this would increase visibility further back. However, in doing so, calibration of any scope attached would also have to be offset to account for this elevated adjustment.
1. The pumping is okay, and doesn't seem to be a problem.
2. The bolt moves smoothly, and doesn't hang up at all.
3. The adjustable stock isn't too comfortable, the end is plastic; and it is hollow and thus noisy.
4. I never got the chance to test the iron sights, I installed the scope out of the packaging (no, it isn't pre-installed, you have to attach it yourself, it comes with mounts). The scope is a 4x magnification, 20mm objective scope and is dialed in at around 25-30 feet. Works fine.
5. As far as composition, the gun is mostly hard plastic, and is fairly durable. If you happen to have an accident (say, on a rooftop), and drop it, it won't break. I would know. The barrel is metal (or if not, is cleverly disguised).Read more ›
☢Great for beginners or average people
☢NEEDS A BETTER SCOPE TO MAKE IT EASIER TO ZERO IN
☢BIGGER BB LOADING HOLE
☢PUMPING IS NOT REALLY A PROBLEM BUT IT COULD BE PERFECTED
So my overall review is get this gun if you are a average shooter, you will have loads of ⓕⓤⓝ!
I didn't attach the scope till after i started, of course it doesn't come attached and as some reviewers pointed out the scope isn't of great quailty, the crosshairs in mine are crooked and i'll have to see if i can adjust it. the regular sights are fine, pretty good i thought. the front has a green fiber optic like sight that captured the low light well at dusk. as for loading the rifle i thought it was pretty easy even though the opening for the bb's is small, just make sure to load the main res over something that will catch the dropped bb's or load it slowly. do this with the bb retention button on the top pushed up. after u have filled some pull the button back after you close the loading gate on the stock and point the rifle down and shake, bb's will fill the visible mag on the top of the rifle. Once the mag is full push the button up so more bb's don't fill during firing. for pellets you use the included magazine, which is easy to lose but you can buy 5 packs anyway for faster reloading.Read more ›
