Very strong value for the money. Excellent accuracy, quiet shroud, easy to load 10 shot mag, large airtank, smooth bolt action, most excellent fitting stock and it's damn fun to shoot. Magazines are a bit spendy at $45 - hearsay are having cracking issues but mine are fine - also baffles are being shot out of shroud in cold weather - again mine are fine and I live in NH. PowerMod is $60 extra and takes a few days extra to be done before shipping. I had to take an extra day to think it over after talking to Steve and reading the differences in opinions of pros and cons but thought I'd burn if I didn't get it and wonder what I was missing. No worries - couldn't be without it now - wouldn't order one without it. I wanted to buy a .177 after shooting my .22 for a bit but found out that I'd have to order one and wait a few months. I put a Simmons 44 mag scope on it and its deadly out to 60yds.
I use a scuba tank to fill the gun.
My gun likes to shoot (I mean groups well):
JSB's and I shoot them at 900
JSB Schak and I shoot them at 600 indoors
Crosman Premiers and I shoot them at 900 fps
Crow Magnums and I shoot them at 940 fps
Kodiaks and I shoot them at 830 fps
If you turn the power down you get more shots. I heard the .177's are getting over 60 shots shooting Crosman Premier lights at 850fps or so. My gun gets 45-50 shots (depending on air temp) shooting indoors with JSB Shaks at 500-600 fps
