The power, accuracy, looks and recoil
a bit loud.
Those that complain that this gun is too hard to cock, or is too heavy or is inaccurate are either a bunch of kids or are just not right. I mean, seriously, even my girlfriend can cock this gun 30 or so times before she gets tired and she is only 160 cm tall and weigh 50 kg! It's all about the technique people. Think leverage.
And the weight? C'mon, 9 odd pounds aint heavy at all. If you're complaining that it's too heavy - find something else lighter like a plastic gun or water pistol. This gun is for a real man, or even woman.
Inaccurate i hear some of you say? Do your research first, experiment with different pellets and holding techniques. This gun likes the heavier pellets and a light hold. Remember that it becomes more accurate as you wear it in - which takes around 1000 shots or so.
Hard recoil? what is this, were talking about a gun design for destruction of life here. Those who are using it for this very purpose are not new age sensitive men or environmentalists or any other bunch of pansies. I love the recoil of this gun. Makes it feel like a 'proper' gun. And for those who complain that it breaks scopes? Well, don't be tight - go and get yourself a decent air rifle scope with decent mounts. Getting a cheap scope for this gun is like buying retreads for your Ferrari.
