Sweet shot

Date:December 31, 2012
I got this gun for Christmas. I took it out of the box and sited in my gun with .177 cal. points. Later that day I shot a squirrel from 15 to 20 yards away and hit it right in the head.

pretty good

Date:March 15, 2011
I got this air rifle for my 7 yr old son to begin learning how to shoot. Although its relatively inexpensive, I was surprised at the features and quality. The fiber optic sights are very good. The trigger isn't bad. It's reasonably accurate too. At 10 yards I get about 1.5" groups. The force needed to cock it is very light compared to adult air guns. My 7yr old still can't cock it himself, but he can shoot it. My only complaint is that the comb of the stock is too high. It's difficult to get your cheek low enough to view the sights properly. With a scope it would be no problem. It's still useable, but a bit awkward. It's a keeper, and we're having fun with it so far.

Not Happy

Date:September 8, 2010
I got this for my wife, The best I could get it to group was 1 1/2 inch at 15 yards, The trigger pull keeps changing, one time ez most times very hard. The reason I am returning it is as the temperature changes so does the poi. by as much as 2 inches at 15 yards. I tried 12 different pellets, 2 red dots and 3 scopes all to no avail. I was shooting off sand bags very lightly held and nothing I did helped.
