Accurate, not hard to cock, good velocity, weight no issue.
I recently was convinced by BWassung bot's review and advice to seek the Air Arms Pro-Elite rifle out.
I got lucky and found one at straight shooters.
This rifle is incredible!
I was able to set it up(bushnell trophy scope)and zero it in easily, which wasn't the case with my Gamo 1250 hunter.
Using the heavy @ss beeman 22cal. kodiac pellets, I hit a squirrel with a body shot and, well for that squirrel it wasn't nice, exit wound large, force knocked him out of the tree, I was about 20yrds away. I also bought some crosman premiers and will try them next.
The trigger was perfect for me right out of the box, no adjustment was needed for me. This is also a quite rifle, shoots smooth, and I promise you, you'll hit what you aim at.
Even though the 22cal. Elite shoots at a slower velocity than my Gamo Hunter, it's still very powerful for hunting (at least within 30yrds so far, I haven't shot the Elite as much yet, just got it)
The weight issue is no issue for me, having shot the Gamo, the Elite isn't heavey to me.
Well,that's it for now, will keep you posted on latest developments. Oh,by the way,would some type of tune or spring upgrade really be worth the trouble?I know the Elite is pretty powerful as is, but, lets face it, some of us just want to have the most accurate, powerful rifle to hit the planet. I have a habbit of shooting pennies, and the Gamo could darn near split then in half, and for some reason, I like that(lol).
