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). Though I wouldn't just go dropping the gun everywhere, treat it with respect.
6. There are no rings/mounts to attach a sling, so an alternate method will have to be used.
The gun comes with everything you see in the picture, nothing more. You will need to purchase a bipod and/or sling separately. If I were you I would invest in a clamp-on bipod, as there are no real accessory rails on this gun other than where you mount the scope (dovetail, if I'm not mistaken). After I recieve ammunition and fire about a hundred/two hundred BBs/pellets, I'll update as far as accuracy, jamming (if any), and overall likability.
1. The gun was accurate, about 4 in. spread at 50ft. The scope, however, took some dialing.
2. The scope is fairly decent. It took about 8 shots to re-dial mine.
The gun did not jam at all. Overall, the gun is nice to shoot with and decently accurate. I put out about half a tin of pellets and half a bottle of bbs, took out 2 squirrels and a very noisy bird. Hope this review helps.
I have taken the scope off out of pure distaste. The elavation dial is worthless and requires too much frustration to accurately dial in. I am assuming this is due to cheap manufacturing processes and therefore is the reason the scope came with the gun for free. I have tried out the hard sights on the gun and they work perfectly fine with some practice. I'm not taking any stars off, as this review is for the gun itself, not the scope that comes with it (which is crap). Buy a NEW scope, and possibly a dovetail-to-weaver adapter rail for mounting, as well as a tri-rail system to put on the barrel if you prefer to buy better quality bipods, lasers, flashlights, etc. As previously stated, there are no mounts for a sling, so choose carefully, or install mounts yourself.
Hope this review helps.
