1. Custom Action Trigger (CAT) - One of the best non-German triggers yet. Independently adjust first & second stage pull length. While not adjustable, the pull weight on mine is just under 3 lbs. Similar in feel to Crosman's CBT, but breaks at a much lighter weight. Also it's a true hunting rifle - no automatic safety, which I view as a plus in the field. The Crosman style manual safety lever in front of the trigger is just right.
2. Recoil Reducing Rail (RRR) - Alert! The scope ring cap screws & rail screws are TORX head, not Allen. A torx wrench for these is included with the rifle. I think the reviews should be broken down by pre & post addition of the 11mm dovetail scope RRR. The thing works as advertised. I have Weaver/Picatinny rails on other gas ram & magnum rifles so was skeptical about the setup. So far, it works.
3. Bull Whisper barrel - No stock air rifle have an actual bull barrel, but the term has stuck. Unlike most airgun "silencers" this system also works well. It's almost as quiet as a Benjamin Steel Eagle NP2, which is the quietest rifle I have & go-to hunting rifle.
4. Shooting - In a word, it's pleasant to shoot. It is not particularly hold sensitive, light arming at about 30 lbs, minimal recoil. I ran about 100 rounds of 14.6gr Crosman .22 Premier Ultramags thru it. Was shocked that after the scope was sighted in, it shot quarter size groups at 18 yrds. Yes, even with the typically horrible stock scope. It will get an upgrade after break-in, which won't be very long. Will post crony results later.
5. Pellets .22 cal. - Very pellet picky. So far it likes 14.6gr Crosman .22 Premier Ultramags (round nose), with Crosman Premier Hollow Points & 14gr flat nose RWS Meisterkugelen Pro Line yielding nickel & dime size groups @18 yards. 16.9 gr Ruger Superpoints yielded about a 2" group. 11.9gr RWS Hobbys & 16.7gr Crosman Red Flight Penetrators are horrible in the rifle. Interestingly, the 15.43 Gamo lead ball ammo does about 1 1/2" groups @ 18 yards as did the & Crosman Destroyers. Both those tear up what they hit. Of note, the Crosman & Gamo ball are tight in the chamber. The Rugers & RWS, not so much. More later. Have another 3 or 4 types to try.
Update - MORE PELLET INFO - The photo is the target used for these tests at 25 yards, seated freehand, no rest. Top Left, H&N Baracuda Copper Plate. Very bad but at 21 gr might just be too heavy for this rifle. Top Right, JSB Exact Diabolo 18.13 grshot the best of any so far. The one flyer was me, not the ammo or gun. Lower Left, Crosman Hollow Points 14.3gr. One high flyer was me, the other was ammo. Lower Right, Crosman Pointed Hunting pellets. Very inconsistent batch with some very tight & other almost loose. This is reflected in the results. I really wanted to use these pellets so I tried them in a Benjamin Nitro Venom (center target) with similar results.
Bad Stuff - This will be a good hunter but disappointed that for the money it doesn't come with sling swivels. Stock screws are nicely covered but not meant to be accessible. Not sure after the rubber insert is removed how to reattach. Will figure something out. No clear click when charging so never quite sure when the piston is fully compressed. Not a big deal but is annoying. Yeah, scope it junk but these reviews should be about the rifle, not the scope. But, why do these guys use a plastic trigger & safety on an otherwise good weapon. Compared to a Benjamin Steel Eagle, which is probably the closest comparison at the same price point, all the Gamo plastic disappoints. Only continued good performance may make up for that.
Hoping this rifle holds up over time. I like it.
Very impressed and pleased with this rifle, (and I'm a retired S.F. Sergeant Major, not easily impressed!)
