* Accurate, using .177 pointed pellets now. Inch groups at 50 feet.
* Powerful, sinks pellets about 1/4 inch into hard pine 2x4 at 50 feet.
* Solid construction.
* Great style.
* Relatively easy to cock and load, 30 pound pull on the barrel.
* Fixed sights easy to set up and use on close targets.
* Great not having to pump many times as only one cock loads the air supply.
* Easy to load pellets when the barrel is bent over.
* Recoil pad is effective.
* Trigger seems smooth without much pulling of the barrel to the right.
* Recoil reminds me of 4.10 shotgun. Necessary for recoil to move mass of the pellet at 1000 FPS.
* Instantaneous volume of air released to drive the pellet is noisy, like a .22 short.
* Recoil jarred my Walther 4x32 scope off it's mounts then after using the stop pin hole on the barrel to keep the scope on the gun, tore the scope internals loose. Got a Barska 4X32, so far so good.
* Barrel open sight post ball a little large and covers over half inch targets at 50 feet. Need to reset aim for the ball to be under the target bulls eye to see it when aiming. Quite accurate as the open sights are on the break barrel and align no matter the amount of barrel droop.
* Gun is a little heavy but is solid built.
* Was not sure where to obtain oil that won't diesel for the compression chamber. Finally went to Paslode "Duo-Fast Lubricating oil" from Lowe's figuring if it's good for nail guns, should work fine. So far so good after a year's use. Just my experience, use your own judgement.
All in all this is a super gun with good accuracy . Don't think you can beat the value because the specs on break over barrel air guns seem to have about the same power levels. Just the styles seem to be the difference. Might be worthwhile to pay a little more and get the scope equipped Phantom. Maybe their scope is more rugged.
This air gun is powerful. The other day I was shooting from a rest at 10 yards and had my steel pellet trap sitting on a plastic recycling bin. I was shooting the Crosman Premier hollow point pellets. The gun had the power to make the whole pellet trap slid back on the box it was sitting on.
I will get the new mount installed and do some shooting and report back then. The trigger is pretty stiff. The recoil pad was very loose on my Phantom when I received it. Please note, that I tried to tighten the 2 mounting screws, and it wasn't working. So I removed the pad and found that one of the screws was a dummy and didn't screw. It has a pieces on it that mates up to a part on the gun stock, and just the one screw actually tightens. I did clean the barrel before I ever fired the air gun. I got some dirt/crud out and kept running clean patches through till they came out clean. The open sights work all right, but do have a lot of play in them. So far, the gun seems to like the Crosman Premier hollow points, but I have other pellets to try in it also. Best groups so far are about 5/16" at 10 yards rested. Not great, but these must be broken in and usually quiet down and get more accurate.
I have to deal with the peculiar firing and recoil of a spring piston air rifle, and a magnum level one at that. They can be extremely hold sensitive and pellet picky.
I'll get back after I get the scope mounted. I am hoping for good accuracy. For now, 4-stars. The gun sells at a great price. $84 delivered. You are going to have a tough time getting more gun for your money. I also have CO2 air rifles and multi-pumps, and both types are way easier to shoot accurately.
1/31/2014 I got the one piece scope mount with a scope stop pin and installed my Centerpoint 2-7x32mm scope. No more scope slide. But I couldn't get good accuracy, and I believe the Phantom may have damaged the scope, as the windage adjustment is now messed up. It feels like the adjustment knob skips teeth as you turn it. I was getting terrible groups at 10 yards (like 6" with flyers). I removed the scope and mount and went back to using the open sights, which shrunk the group size down to less embarrassing sizes. I'm still trying to experiment as far as how I hold the Phantom. I don't shoot this a lot due to it's a noisy one, and I don't want the neighbors thinking I'm shooting a .22. I'll report back later when I discover the best way to hold this airgun. No lack of power, and that's for sure.
I set up a target to prepare for the time the very annoying squirrel attacks my wife's bird feeder again. My faithful watchdog is patiently sitting on the lawn, now to let me know when the varmint appears. He is 8 pounds of pure venom, that one. Anyway, the first shot was a little to the right, so I had my wife try it and she put one nearly in the same spot. So, I adjusted windage a few times and the last one was nearly dead center, so I think I am ready for that bad squirrel to show.
I had seen some reviews stating the sights were cheap etc., but although I am not expert by any means, I thought they were just fine and I love the way they line up easily. I thought I would get a scope for this, but now, I am not so sure...I may leave it this way and see how it goes.
For the money, I really like the way this rifle looks, feels, and shoots. I know we are going to have a lot of fun together. When we are enjoying our summer property, it will be nice to have this around to get rid of some of the creatures getting in the way of the creatures we love. Or just plunking for fun. Great buy, I think! I will follow up after I have used it for a while.
