I've had this gun for about 3 weeks now. Cocking effort is easy, pistol grip and stock are stylish. Was shooting 8.44gr JSB exacts at 425fps and JSB exact RS, 7.33gr at 460. Slightly underwhelming, even in the no PAL rifles. Sights are nice for this price point, easily adjustable. Though a bit low on the gun, making the cheek rest a bit awkward. Balance is off a bit with the light synthetic stock. Otherwise, felt great, short, easy to hold and look through with a scope raised 1.5" up. Pistol grip is youth sized, I could only wrap two fingers around it. Not a deal breaker, though. Trigger feels like it has two stages until you cock the rifle. There is a minor gap until there is an swamp that you squeeze through until there is a surprise shot.

Accuracy was questionable from the get go. I was making reasonable 1.1" CTC @ 20 yards, but 25% of the shots were going all over the place. Turns out most of the loaded pellets were having the skirt bent inwards when the barrel was returned.

Gun seems very hold sensitive. I had enormous differences between different holds, rests.

Recoil seems heavy for such a low powered rifle, the piston has little resistance as the transfer port is more than .150". The piston tends to slam hard no matter what.

Uses a 19mm OD, 13.4mm ID, 2.8mm thick, 165mm long, spring.

I will weld the transfer port shut and drill to .110" to see if that eases the piston and recoil. It's quite possible that with minor modifications this rifle could be reasonably accurate and a fine addition to any collection.

2 Stars based on pellets not fitting into the breach well and clipping the skirt. Also, the transfer port is too large causing little resistance for the spring even while terribly low powered, causing bad recoil, accuracy issues.
