There a lot more praises than complaints, thus according to the majority, this air rifle model is actually worth the purchase. Its inclusion of Nitro Piston 2 technology merges strong shots with minimal cocking effort and excellent precision. Because this pellet rifle does not rely on standard coiled steel springs and instead uses a nitrogen-packed gas piston, the model puts forward .177-caliber alloy pellets at speeds up to 1400 fps.

The model’s sound suppression is a winning point; it minimizes noise to allow shooters to acquire subsequent shots at smaller targets or to fire down on multiple targets in just one sitting. The fact that it was endorsed by a famed airgun aficionado and big game enthusiast, Eva Shockey, is also a nice selling point.
