Fantastic Air Rifle!
on January 2, 2012
IMO, this is the greatest bargain in .177 air rifles available today. It is a clone of the RWS34 but, as I have owned both, this rifle makes me happier than the RWS did. It puts out more power and is less trouble prone. I now have 2 of these, one of which is being converted to .22cal. I own several fairly sophisticated air rifles, but the Blackhawks will always be my favorites. They are deadly accurate, totally reliable, easy to maintain and nice to look at and shoot.
Although the open sights that come on these are very adequate, I suggest putting a really good quality scope with sturdy scope rings on them. After a good tune-up, they are capable of shooting match quality accuracy and a good scope really makes them shine.
As for overall power and usefulness, with this rifle, I have had more one-shot, clean, humane kills on squirrels, possums and racoons than I can count.
