“Everything about this rifle says "big" and "solid"....”

Written on: 15/09/2007 by wal1 (1 review written)

Good Points
Build quality, looks, sledgehammer power.

Bad Points
Like any springer, it is a shooting technique-sensitive rifle.

General Comments
Everything about this rifle says "big" and "solid". I'm in the process of breaking mine in (got it 2 months ago), and have between 600-700 shots in. You get used to the cocking effort; it's not prohibitive if you're reasonably strong. Best accuracy so far comes with 31g Kodiak (634 fps), 26.5g Cro-Magnum (750 fps), and 24g Beeman Silver Arrow (about 810 fps). I've been having quite a time getting consistent groups, but I attribute that to shooting technique (it takes a LOT of practice), and the fact that it's still pretty new. I do wonder if the scope is mounted correctly. The above pellets have a similar trajectory out to about 20-25 yards, but that changes dramatically beyond that range. It takes time to know where a given pellet will be at a given range. If I can eventually put 5 shots inside an inch diameter circle at 25 yards consistently, I'll be satisfied. Anything it hits, it kills.
