Things I liked: It's a really powerful airgun. The first day I got it I was a little confused about how to shoot it because the gun I had before that was the crosman 760. When I had learned how to shoot it though it was really easy. A great target practice gun and great for the squirrel dove and rabbit around my house.
Things I would have changed: I would get a new scope for the gun it's still pretty accurate with the scope that comes with it but it's better to spend a little extra money and buy a new scope. I would also have it come in kid size being just an 11year old girl makes it hard to carry around a gun that big and have to cock it too.
What others should know: The pba pellets are most accurate with the gun and I recommend them. You should also get a thing of loctite to glue the scope onto the gun so it doesn't shift around and get inaccurate.

Things I liked: This gun is a pleasure to look at and a pleasure to shoot. The muzzle break looks cool! Its accuracy is pretty amazing. I've been breaking it in without sights or scope and I can get bulls-eyes from 5-15 yards. Its hard to tell if the muzzle break really helps with recoil much, but it definitely directs the sound downstream as when firing PBA ammo the supersonic crack is heard more toward the target rather than near the gun.
Things I would have changed: The cocking effort is rated at 31 lbs. My son's Storm XT is rated at 28 lbs. If there really is only a 3 lb difference, it sure is significant. This gun is a bit difficult to cock.
What others should know: It is an excellent gun. I have not tried the scope yet, so I'm not going to comment on it.

Things I liked: The 2 caliber setup is nice, especially if you only have one rifle. Mine stays .22 cal because I have another accurate rifle in .177.The included scope was adequate. Caliber change is simple and quick. Wood is attractive. Raised cheekpiece is comfortable. Also like the curved butt. You can't beat the RS2 for this price.
Things I would have changed: Balance is good, but overall it's heavy. A scope upgrade option would be nice. I would also like to have checkering or stippling on the grip and forearm.
What others should know: While most air rifles tend to prefer certain pellet designs, my RS2 is not finicky and I find the accuracy to be excellent with a wide variety of ammo. The RWS and Beeman pellets are slightly more accurate in my springer than Crossman or the Korean brands. I did not try non-lead or sabots.

Things I liked: Dual Caliber, Scope, fit and finish, trigger control, overall quality of product. I also like the weight and the look and feel of the rifle.
Things I would have changed: Carry case is not a great design. Would like to see more spare parts (seals, etc.). The plastic plugs can fall off (where you tighten the stock) and this is my only real complaint. Not sure why Beeman's don't seem the get the respect they deserve.
What others should know: Accurate w/the .177 (and deadly - very effective). One shot, one kill. The .22 does require that you re-sight the rifle, but heck, for what I paid, having both calibers for one rifle is an excellent value! I will buy Beeman again, and again. The trigger on this is adjustable, and out of box it is a real treat to shoot. Recoil isn't bad, and the rifle isn't as loud as I was led to believe. I will warn you though - DO NOT fire cleaning pellets through it when your neighbors are around, it sounds like a rimfire when you put one through the rifle (VERY LOUD).

Things I liked: This is my first "adult" air rifle, and I am very impressed. Accuraccy is on par with my rim fires, as well as some of my center fire rifles. The overall fit and finish is good, but the stock is easily scratched. The scope mounts easily and securely, and does not drift.
Things I would have changed: A better trigger and a more durable finish on the stock would be my only complaints. The trigger is smooth and adjustable, but could still be better.
What others should know: Plenty of power here, With the .177 cal barrel installed you can shoot completely through three soda cans filled with water, The .22 will go through five. This is a powerful quiet package and will meet the needs of 90% of all air gun shooters. So far all pellets I've tried have been reasonably accurate, the .22 RWS Superdome seem to be my favorites, for the best balance of accuracy and power.
