I bought this RWS 320m off the Craigslist for $40 and it is worth every penny of it and plus more. It came with a scope 3-6x30and a carrying case. I took it out to a range and zero the rifle at 25yrd and after about 10 shots with .177 copperhead pellets, I was able to get a nickle size grouping. I deployed this baby the first day and got a squirrel in the tree 10rds away. About a week later I shot and killed a coyote in my back yard which was trying to eat my dog, Max. At first I shot the coyote in the body to scare him away but,my thougts changed when I remembered all the missing dog posters in my negihborhood. I have two young children who constantly plays in the back yard and I be damed if one of these coyotes gets to them. I then started to shoot the head from 20 yrds away. when the pellet struck you can hear this distinctive cracking sound. The skull of the coyote was too thick to penitrate from this distance, so I start to aim for his soft tissue the eyes. It took me good 12 shots to put him down and just to make sure another five to the head. one thing I didnt realize how high a coyote can jump, I mean 7' plus. lucky for me my chain link fence is 12' high. I felt kind of bad putting this coyote down especilly when your wife is sobbing right next to you. I wish i could of used my 10/22 ruger but it was 1 am in the morning plus i didn't want anyone calling the police. But I knew I did the right thing thinking about my children, dog, and my chickens. If I let it go, I am sure this coyote will try his second attemp and I didnt want to take any chances. Enough said about the coyote. Over all I can not say anything negative about this pellet rifle. It is made very well,it is solid and has the weight of a real .22 rifle. craftmanship is excellent and I dont understand why other people are complaining about the quality, maybe because it has a made in China stamp on it. Anyone of you come across this rifle cheap, I highly recommend you jump on it. I am speaking from 23 years of experience as a firearms instructor and too bad this review does have spaces for photos.
