Review this product
9 January 2008  

Things I liked: I like pretty much everything about this gun. It is super accurate. It is beautifully finished w/walnut stock. I bought this gun after owning many springers previously. I doubt I'll ever have to buy another, it's that good. It is quiet and strong enough for suburban backyard varmint control.
Things I would have changed: I wish it was as easy to load as a break barrel or other types of underlevers but once you get used to it, you get fast, and to do it another way would detract from the lines of this beautiful gun.
What others should know: This could be the last airgun you'll ever need.

Things I liked: This gun boasts incredibly fabulous accuracy, lines and balance. I have extensively shot many air rifles over 35 years including field target since 1996. This is simply the most accurate spring gun I have ever used. As with the TX200, the internal mechanism is the toughest, least stressed and easiest to work on of all spring guns. If you are reasonably strong, you will require no spring compressor for takedown. Unlike most other airguns, the guts on these AA springers are wonderfully overbuilt.
Things I would have changed: Air Arms formerly took much better care in their polishing/bluing process. The trigger on my gun was also shipped with a great need for additional tuning.
What others should know: Use dedicated field target pellets. My gun works well with both Kodiak and FTS pellets. Stick with .177 caliber for field target. As with most springers, use a light hold on the gun and let it recoil gently in your arms upon firing. Using good wrenches, pin punches and a good honing stone, be ready to do some trigger tuning or hire someone qualified to do it for you. Many folks complain about the cocking effort in their Pro Sport. Yes, it's a work out at first but it eventually gets easier as the gun breaks in. Expect to have a break in period lasting at least 1000 shots for accuracy and reduced cocking effort. Begin with heavy pellets to reduce dieseling in your new gun. With some patientce, will have the best spring gun ever!

Things I liked: Very accurate. Gorgeous walnut stock that handles & balances extremely well. It is a .22 caliber and puts out enough energy for small game hunting.
Things I would have changed: 
What others should know: It shoots JSB exacts and Crosman premiers the best.

Things I liked: Great looking. Shrouded barrel. The rifle is smooth and quiet with plenty of power for pest control in .22 caliber (which I have). The hidden underlever is a neat feature.
Things I would have changed: I guess I would like it to be easier to load; but than it would take away from the looks.
What others should know: This rifle is extremely accurate.
