Review this product
16 April 2008  

Things I liked: I can't believe there is no review so far! OK, so I will be the first! Great gun! I have it since almost a year now. I have been out hunting and I did kill several squirrels, rabbits and one Raccoon so far (headshots, all clean kills). Devastating power! Mine chronos 930fps with 16gr Raptor pellets. Getting consistent accuracy drove me almost crazy though. Gun is picky with pellets. I only get good grouping with the Raptor pellets. I shoot indoors, 10yards and I get normally a 4.5-5mm grouping with 5 shots (sitting). That is amazing taking into account that the pellet diameter is 5.5mm (.22cal). This is no toy gun. It is quality made and deadly. I have a 3-3 42mm scope on it! Great! I often take the air gun out hunting instead of my .22 rimfire, because there is no gun cleaning afterwards and the power is just great for long distance shots.
Things I would have changed: Worst think is that it is a single shot. For hunting you might want a second backup shot and this is kind of a hassle when when you are out in the field, especially taking into consideration that you have to load the pellet under the scope. Then the barrel diameter is only 1/2 inch. That is pretty thin for a .22cal. Gun is pretty loud also. Understandable at this power level. The muzzle break could be designed better for noise attenuation.
What others should know: The first gun I got did not work! Absolutely no power! I send it back and they gave me exactly what I had asked for. Power. For the first shots I used my standard Gamo pellet trap which worked fine using my Gamo CFX 1000fps .177cal so far. After a few shots I cleaned up and there was a hole on the metal. The pellets just went through. So make sure you have a good backstop!
