Great Buy - Very High Power
This is overall a good gun. Has good weight (which I like). The scope was defective!! The gun would not sight in with the scope. The LR adjustment dial did absolutely nothing. Once I removed the scope, the gun dialed in perfectly with the iron sights. I can shoot a dime at 20 yards. I would assume with a good scope, I will be able to dial in much longer shots. I will try to return the scope this weekend.
I would definately recommend this gun to others. It shoots hard, has a nice kick, and with the solid wood an metal construction gives it a real rifle feel.

Velocity is as claimed
My new Air Hawk has a nice trigger, set by the factory to a long, two-stage type, but the takeup easily adjusts to nothing.
I haven't had a chance to shoot for accuracy yet, but I did shoot two different pellets over my chronograph. The .45 gram Gamo Hunter shot at 931 fps and a .4 gram Crosman Lead Free pellet was 1059.
I checked "Ease of Use" as an advantage. This applies to use by a grown man in good health. The gun is as heavy as a centerfire rifle and the cocking force is enough that smaller people or those with joint pain my have trouble with it.

I got this gun today seeing as I live in Canada we have restrictions on fps (Over 600 you need a licence) so this gun has 490 Fps. When I shoot this thing it goes a little over that. I shot a crow and it went right through it. It has good accuracy. The scope is good but can be a pain to get on and zero in but if you can accomplish that your good to go. I have shot from 50 feet away at and it is still extremely accurate. It was also recommended by the staff. Almost all wood and metal :). Does anyone know if it will kill a squirrel at 490-510 Fps?
