I got mine in .22 and I have shot about 200 pellets so far and the action went from 'gritty' to smooth. The metal and wood are good quality and exceed the quality you would expect for a rifle in this price range.
The trigger is light but pretty unpredictable. It often surprises you due to the creep in the second stage and some people might call that a good thing. I find it acceptable for a cheap rifle and if you are used to any of the big box break barrel guns, you will be happy with this trigger because it's better.
The accuracy is okay. I don't keep any guns that can't shoot straight and I find this one acceptable. On a bench at 30 yards you can expect to hit a 2" spinner target every time. This largely depends on the pellets you buy though and I haven't tried them all. I bought the JSB testing assortment pack and found that daisy cheapo pellets work as well as any of those but you will find many more daisy pellets that are obviously damaged and just toss them. It is a 'minute of squirrel' gun which is more than I can say for many of the spring air guns I have shot in the past.
The scope is garbage and probably accounts for much of the accuracy discrepancies. I can see where people might think it's a good scope (clear sight picture at the crosshairs, decent build quality) but if you are experienced with optics you pick up on the problems quickly. In my scope the lenses weren't lined up properly and the point of impact will change depending on the zoom level and parallax (the front adjustment on the scope). With any air gun you will be shooting at shorter ranges and adjustable parallax is a MUST.Read more ›
When I first fired it, I was a little taken back. This gun has a little kick and the report is kinda on the loud side. It is a spring action rifle so I did expect this before it arrived. Close to a .22 rim fire in sound and feel. I have neighbors within 20 feet on one side and I'm not trying to upset them so unless I'm dealing with the rat I will keep this to indoors or take it out away from the neighborhood.
Cocking the gun is easy for an adult, but would be challenging for small or young children, a feature I like! Loading the pellet in the receiver area is a little awkward but you get a feel for it pretty quickly and is easy once you've done it a number of times.
I didn't want a break barrel because they can suffer from accuracy problems because of all the barrel movement required by that design. This is a fixed barrel design and I really think it makes for a much better rifle. I did some research and found that spring action models suffer from barrel droop in relation to the scope. Not sure why but this is true for the one I received. The scope by the way is very nice and attaches securely. They have a rubber shim glued in the rear scope mount but I made up some shims that won't crush or shift around, I found that the rubber smashed down a bit and wasn't serving well as a shim. I started dialing in the scope at 10', then out to 20' and finally 30' which was all I could manage indoors.Read more ›

Only giving one star because I have to. This is one of the worse pellet guns I have ever shot. I could have spent $140 less at walmart for a better gun. Read morePublished 4 months ago by Amazon Customer
The pellet rifle is fine..well made and accurate. It is heavier than my deer rifle and cocking the spring piston takes a moderate 'grunt' but not bad. Read morePublished 6 months ago by Robert Larison

This is a great gun! A little on the heavy side due to the wood, but with a gun support it is deadly.Published 8 months ago by BigAl
I ordered this rifle for my hubby who wanted an air rifle that he could shoot without waking the kids up from their naps. Especially when compared to a rim fire . Read morePublished 8 months ago by Miss Carrie Ann
