This rifle is sold in a box for a reason. It feels VERY light and flimsy. The stock is hollow plastic, the forearm is plastic, the barrel is a smoothbore piece of pipe, and the metal for the receiver is stamped steel.
With all that said, this rifle IS INDEED worth the money. It is FAR superior to any daisy air rifles in this price range, capable of producing twice the power. This is NOT a match target rifle. The barrel is not rifled. It IS however a great plinker, it's design is intelligent, and well, it's just plain old fun. Easier to pump than a break barrel, and quiet enough to use indoors. I recommend buying BBs for it. Cheaper, and pellets have less terminal effect out of the non-rifled barrel.
Overall, if you plan on shooting within 10 yards, this is outstanding. If you are looking for accuracy or terminal performance, look elsewhere.
