Review this product
15 November 2008  

Things I liked: I loved the way this rifle handled. The great thing about this for me was the adjustable sling attachment. For my Prone position, both of my hands are right next to my face so its great since it goes practicully straight towards the pump.
Things I would have changed: I would change the weight scale to it a little, it does seem as if there is a little more weight in the front than there is in the back, and in kneeling it sometimes slides out of my shoulder pocket because of this.
What others should know: If you do have problems with the weights of some guns and dont like how some are scaled out, I suggest not getting this since it is a little offbalanced compared to the 853C and 753C.

Things I liked: Lothar Walther barrel is crazy accurate. Balances well, and I like the extra barrel weight (it's movable fore and aft about 1.5 inches). Very accurate for a rifle in this price range (or for a $600 and less category) for 10m target rifles. The synthetic stock has a nice grip to it.
Things I would have changed: Plastic trigger seems cheap. Plastic bolt handle also. But, that would certainly drive up the price, and I feel you get a great value for the entry price on this one. Pistol grip is much narrower than I expected (compared to the Crosman Challenger 2000) -- my shooting hand feels a hair cramped wrapping around this narrow of a grip. Not enough of an issue to disenjoy shooting it, though.
What others should know: The large NRA seal/symbol was not on my rifle as is shown on the picture (which I'm kind of glad -- love the NRA but it makes for a much cleaner look on the rifle without it). Now easily tied as my favorite rifle with my Crosman Challenger 2000. Really enjoying this rifle!
