Good Points
light! at 6.5 llbs, pin point accurate, easy to handle. I have fitted the theoben gas ram (£55) and the recoil is minimal. It is whisper quite, just a good gun at a brilliant price.

Bad Points
none, but the spring is noisy! if you keep it in.

General Comments
I am new to airgunning, and wanted a weapon that was cheap, just in case I did'nt get hooked.

The spring action is noisy and harsh, upgrade to a gas strut and you can still see through the scopes at your target when you fire. The trajectory seems very flat until about 35-40yards ,and then needs about 1inch up , but at 10, 25 yards hits target.

Its a bargain.

I have bought a Lightning and a Theoben gas ram and I am trying to fit it but I am finding it very hard to compress it becuase is very stiff. How did you manage to fit it? Thanks.
