Ok, here's the deal.
I stopped by my local gun store and range just to see what they had in and ran across this rifle sitting in the rack all alone. I thought to myself what a nice addiction it would make, just to toy around with, so I asked the guy how much, paid for it and headed home. Once I got it home, I eyeballed from front to back. I didn't think about buying any pellets for it while I was out, so no shooting it. I called my buddy who lives behind me, and he said bring it on over and we'd do some shooting, so I did, and we did, and let me tell you something, this thing shot like "the back side of a horse". Couldn't zero the scope cause of it being "CLOUDY" and couldn't get in enough windage.. My buddy asked how much I paid for it and I lied a little, think he knew that and he told me I needed a better scope. I ordered a new tasco 22 mag. scope for 35 buck, well really two cause I ordered twice by mistake and couldn't cancel in time, gave him one, I kept the other.
Anyway, I tooked the rifle home and cleaned it, and MAN O Man was it dirty ! The guy before me musta never EVER cleaned it, or oiled it, NOTHING.. I finally got the barrel shinny and then I lubed it, being careful not to get any of the oil on the seals, wiped it down til I got time to zero in my new scope.
Next free day I had, I mounted my new scope, set zero and shot gamo rockets 9g through it and MAN O MAN, what a difference !
I got this for "RANGE CHICKENS" .. It's not broke in as of yet, but getting there. When I was 14, back in the late 60's, I had a crosman 760 that I though was the beast, wasn't like that sorry version they got now, but I'd loved to of had this one back then..
Overall, this is a good rifle !
