Review this product
19 August 2008  

Things I liked: Looks really neat. Handles well.
Things I would have changed: Scope sits to tight to barrel so scope cover needs to be notched/cut. Would suggest overall quality control be done on these rifles before putting them in the package/box. As I am a MNDNR instructor, I bought 2 rifles to use in classroom and field demonstrations. I had to returned both for replacement for various reasons and now have decided to keep only 1 and exchange the other for a real German made RWS rifle for not that much more money. The RWS also comes with a lifetime warranty.
What others should know: First off, Pyramyd Air is a very good outfit so don't get me wrong in that regard. If you have a problem they will fix it although it may take some time. This rifle would be OK for beginners but it is not for those who have been shooting for a while. My overall observation is that the rifle lacks a quality finish and quality workmanship, unlike my past experiences with Beeman. Understand that theses are MADE IN CHINA before you purchase. I was not aware of that.

Things I liked: Easy sighting-in.Took about 20 shots at 30 yards and so far after 100's of rounds still on target. 1" grouping @ 30 yards. Very nice scope, especially for a air rifle. The best price for two calibers in one rifle
Things I would have changed:  Safety placement in the trigger guard isn't the best place for me as I would place it where most safety's are on most other rifles. Slightly higher scope rings as the scope cover does not fit properly between the scope and barrel without notching out the front scope cover.
What others should know:  After hours of research the following is what made me purchase this particular gun over the rest: I have had many air guns and so far this has the biggest "bang" for the buck. We live in the mountains and have many predators to deal with and so far it has taken care of everything we have hit including a pesky fox. For the price you get many extras and options that many other manufactures do not offer. You can spend more money on a pellet gun than a actual high powered rifle.Remember,it still just a pellet gun no matter if you spend a $100 or a 1,000. I tried to justify to purchase a higher dollar rifle(got to have the best toy) and couldn't find any reason to do so. This includes all the ratings,comments and options from many other distributors and manufacture sites. Use Loctite on all ring mounting screws,this will save many troubles on keeping it sighted in. I hope this helps.

Things I liked: The versatility, appearance, range and accuracy was quite impressive. A very nice scope for the money.
Things I would have changed: The rifle must be sighted back in when you install the same barrel. The breach seal falls out easily, with no real retainer or suitable fit. Better buy a few extras because they fall out at the drop of a hat.
What others should know: I'm to much of a novice to advise, only to complement and complain.

Things I liked: Very ergonomic, Looks Great, Awesome Scope, Perfect Trigger pull, Nice raised grips.
Things I would have changed: Nothing comes to mind
What others should know: This gun is very accurate at 25 yds. I used a bench vise and was able to hit a penny size target twice in a row once sighted in (.177). I have fired approx 200 rounds so far so it's not broken in yet. Just fired a few rounds with .22 cal barrel, noticed a significant drop in distance but pretty decent @ 25yds. BTW the lighted reticle is pretty cool, it lights the cross hairs up red. For the price, i really dig it. My son has the 1090 model and the trigger is very difficult to pull compared to this model, if your thinking about it get this one, it's worth the extra $$$.
