BIG TIP: Read the little booklet manual that it comes with. Preferably more than once, for the safety of you and those around you. It's easy to read and is only around 15 mini-pages.
Durability/Aesthetics: This air rifle is solid, the weight is distributed evenly, and boy does it look hot. The cheekpiece is smooth and feels like a hug to the face, and the minute amount of recoil against the ventilated rubber buttpad feels more like a massage than a jerk! And a big plus for me: No huge logo anywhere! In my honest opinion, this rifle is the quintessence of true craftmanship. (It's a work of art!)
Besides the new paint job, a friend of mine that owns both airguns and big guns customized/shaved down the grip to fit my petite hands. I wouldn't ever do this myself, however- Doing it wrong can ruin the gun or hurt someone. Note that I love all other aspects of the gun and do not wish to change them.
I'm tossing the one that came with it as soon as I have an extra $50-$100 laying around for a higher quality one. I'm no expert, but the eye-relief on this bad boy is a pain in the butt. You have to be just close enough for the full picture. I'm also unable to fully zero it in (But maybe I'm doing it wrong, will edit soon) so my shots are always lower than the center point.
The Trigger & The Safety, and the Barrel:
Just as I expected, the trigger is smooth and has a good amount of resistance. It is not a hairpin trigger, but you don't have to truly squeeze either. I can easily move my trigger finger to pull back the safety.
I noticed that many people ask this: Is the barrel hard to 'break?': I am a 95lb female and after the first ten times, it's practically a piece of cake. Make sure to grip the end of the barrel near the muzzle, and rest the butt on your hip or thigh as you pull it downward. Keep pulling until you hear a loud 'click'.
Bottom Line: Don't Hesitate!
Let me know if this helped, and happy shooting! (:
