"Personally I like using a spring rifle because they are reliable and easy to fix. I got more then I could of hoped for with this gun, it has beautiful accuracy, easy to pump and reload, very fast, slick design, and has a good weight on it. The only thing I disliked is the saddle, it sat on the gun no problem but the shells were lose. Besides that it shoots at a solid 375 every time. This gun is definitely worth the price."
