A unique air rifle.
The handling is superb because all the weight is back in your shoulder, the buddy bottle makes a good cheek piece and if you fit low mounts it ensures consistent eye/scope alignment.
Cocking and loading is a doddle, the safety catch is harsh and could spook your quarry with it's clacking sound on release, it can be released gently but it takes a little effort.
The trigger is so-so, quite long and creepy but at least it's not too heavy.
The standard silencer is quite literally an empty can (nothing in it) but it works so what the heck?
Accuracy is very good, not as good as something like an S400 or similar but the Stealth is certainly up to HFT standards. It'll place pellets in a 10mm circle at 35yds.
If you're buying secondhand be very careful - chrono the gun before purchase! These guns were designed to put out 80ftlbs and given the chance they'll got back there! There's a whole aftermarket of modders and tweakers and I've seen horribly bodged valves and pre-loaded hammer springs that ruin the consistency.
If you buy a Stealth and it's inaccurate, put it back to stock, don't mess around. Loctite the top hat in position, otherwise it WILL work loose and WILL ruin the accuracy of the gun.
I'm only rating it 3/5 for value for money, they're far too expensive for what you get but that's life I s'pose
