Accuracy, design, component Quality.
Poorly assembled from factory.
The .177 Falcon F19 Raptor Mk2 air rifle, with walnut skelton stock, is a fine looking weapon.
Unfortunatly for me, my particular gun came to me with the action incorrectly mounted in the stock (it was twisted to one side) and the barrel was actualy bent to the left due to the front barrel support being fitted off-center. This gave shot gun like accuracy.
Both these faults were easily corrected in about 2 minutes once I had noticed them!
Assembly quality aside, the components of the gun are very well made, and the bolt action and magazine drive are excellent.
The weapon is now a pleasure to shoot. I get about 60 full power shots per fill of air, and have found Crossman Accupell to be the best pellet.
I can recommend this gun, but just check it's been correctly assembled before you leave the shop!
