Light, easy to tune, very quiet with silencer, cheap spares from the states and loads of websites for advice/info
Barrel will need recrowning on some. Very pellet fussy, trigger will need a little work and not good in the cold.
I've 2 of these rifles - both in .22. I've left one standard and tuned the other. Its a good back garden fun gun out of the box but with a little work and very little money, these rifles can really be improved. Extreme care should be taken so you do not exceed the UK legal limit of 12fpe. I use my tuned one for all of my hunting needs, I've taken dozens of rats at 35yards, all 1 shot head kills. I had the barrel threaded to take a UKneil silencer - its now as loud as a mouse fart! Google USA forums on this rifle and you'll find loads of help/advice. Custom parts are available from the states - thumb hole stocks are very nice! I'm no engineer but this is an easy rifle to tune/improve. A good cheap hunting tool, nice and light for a full days hunting, it will need a good scope, bin the open sights!
