I’ve shot this gun for years, but the lever arm wore out at the pivot bearing and required replacement. Mac1 makes a nice solid billet lever that will last forever. Otherwise, this gun is simple and solid, very accurate. Can’t beat the old bronze air guns for fun and power, great for my son to build confidence and appreciation for quality, built in the USA.

Bought mine in 1973 as a kid. Still shoots accurate. Have taken many squirrels, rabbits, dove and quail with it over the years. Paid for itself in game meat and great fun.

Have had mine for over 20 years and have shot a lot of varmint with it. Very accurate and powerful for a .177 shot. Have dropped squirrels from trees at 20 yards. Can still get parts for it over the net.

Great gun while it lasted. I had mine about two years, used it around my place to shoot squirrels, loading chamber came loose from the stock-was not impressed.
