I chose this rifle for a specific purpose, to carry with me as a survival weapon. It is one of the lightest, it has enough power to take down small game and aid in defense. You can carry several thousand rounds of ammo with little effort. To reduce the already small size the stock may be cut off. The stock is lightweight plastic and won't soak up moisture nor damaged by it. It is quiet in its operation and won't scare off game or attract unwanted attention.
I seached thru many suppliers to find just the right rifle. It was best all around based on weight, size, power, price and stock configuration. It is well built by a prominent gun manufacturer with a long positive history. I am happy with my purchase.
The fiber-optic sights are really great, but I had to adjust them quite away up and to the left to get into zero. The adjustments, though, are all in the rear sight, windage as well as elevation, which is also great.
Height of comb is low, my wife tried it but couldn't use it as she has a stiffness in her neck. A raised cheek-pad would be a good addition. She did love the "racey" look of it; everyone did.
The rifle has very good fit and finish, and a nice, low maintenance stock. It's plastic, which keeps the weight down and also requires less cleaning and care. It's ambidextrous, which was a deciding factor in that our youngest is left handed and I was planning on her growing into it, and our 11 year-old growing into my wife's rifle, etc. A major drawback of the design is the "ambidextrous" thumb safety (automatic) on the back of the receiver. With her small hands and short reach, she fumbles to get to it and usually must take her hand off the rifle to disengage it. A trigger flick-safety, like the Beeman or Gamo, would be much better, and I'd hope that this is addressed in later models of the rifle. Otherwise the stock is very well made and designed, the ventilated cheek-piece is a nice touch, and the rubber butt-pad also helps (not so much with recoil, there is hardly any, but with grip).Read more ›
The most fun I've had is rapid fire shooting. Being that this gun has a non beartrap cocking, (once cocked the barrel hangs loose) one can use your index finger of the holding hand to hold the barrel open while inserting the pellet and then just flip the nose of the gun while removing the safety and bring the gun up to fire. When done smoothly the rate of fire is fast and FUN!
The best I did was to shoot ten cans in one minute!!! TEN!!!!
Try THAT with ANY other breakbarrel.

Accuracy: the gun is a challenge. The light weight makes the gun recoil very fast. Accuracy is very poor, as a result. Read more
