POWER, Accuracy, Quiet
No safety, no factory power adjustment, barrel band was out of adjustment from the factory.
Very powerful and accurate. With Kodiak pellets I can shoot 0.5" groups at 50 yards. Managed to shoot a big jackrabbit at 132 yards! (I must confess that I skipped the pellet into him. I thought he was a little closer or I wouldn't have even tried that shot. That doesn't say much for my shooting skills, but it does for the guns power!)
I did have a problem with the horizontal adjustment due to the barrel band. If I sighted the rifle in at 20 yards it would always be off to the right about an inch at 50 yards. I finally got a tip to adjust the band that ties the end of the barrel to the air reservoir. This was slightly out of adjustment and had the barrel pulled off center a little. If you adjust yours, make sure you mark the band and the ring immediately in front of the band. Tiny moves of this band will make a big difference on POI.
I also had the power mod done on my rifle. It is nice if you do a lot of target shooting, but for the most part I just keep it dialed up to full power. It probably wasn't the best spent money for me.
The gun has a very nice balance to it as well for off hand shooting. I can pick off very small targets shooting offhand with this rifle much better than I could with any other gun I own.
Overall, I highly recommend this gun. I haven't been dissapointed at all.
