Like every rifle out there that I have read about,this one needed work straight from the box,BEFORE you shoot.I would firmly recommend you check out GTA website,and do some research at their library.I love my rifle but had to replace the barrel pivot washers(plastic) with stainless steel,and make sure you machine the new washers down so they fit very snug,and are the same thickness.The other issue,the notorious trigger,you can upgrade to a GRTIII trigger,or do what I did and do some welding and grinding on the one you got,very happy with my trigger now.Last issue,my piston seal has some light gashes in it,at about 300 rds my wife started hollerin' at me in the middle of my reloading,and I got distrcted and didnt load a pellet before I closed the barrel,and dry fired,never do that.I tore the rifle down and found the light damage on the seal,the tear down is very simple mechanics.You can learn how to build you own spring compressor on GTA.Anyways,I honed the chamber cleaned all the parts and lubed them,shoots LIKE new again.I do have some seals coming from crosman however.All that being said I believe all brands and models have small issues,but can easily be resolved with a little self educating,like air gun sites etc.I strongly recommend you check out GTA before you shoot,hope this can help all looking to buy.Oh,and one more thing to add Crosman customer service,via email,is awesome.
