I’ve had my .177 for three years now and over 4,000 pellets later it is still working fine. I regret not buying a case of these guns 10 years ago for now they are pretty dried up in the states. Accuracy is good out to 10m or 32 ft, not very powerful, I’ve shot birds with mine and feathers blew off but the bird’s still fly away. Not accurate enough to attempt hunting birds at varying distances greater than 7-10meters depending on pellet and shot placement. The iron sites are adjusted with fine needle nose pliers or a site tool for an sks/ak, if your pellet hits high you raise the front post, if it hits low you lower the post, if it hits to the left you push the front site post left, etc. The rifle is pretty heavy compared to other airguns of the same size. The bolt in the rear that holds the action to the receiver needed loctite to keep from coming loose. The gun is pellet picky and finding one that goups tightly can be frustraiting, my gun hates Daisy pellets. If you are lucky enough to buy one of these, BUY IT! you will have a great looking gun that should provide you with years upon years of reliable service

I own a HW80 in .22 and a HW97k in .177, so I know what it feels to hold and shoot a quality air-gun. Nonetheless I really, really like this little gun for close range cellar plinking (5-15 meters). It is surprisingly accurate and thanks to the folding stock very easy to take down the stairs. On the minus side, the stock is too short, so I lengthened it by 2,5 cm/1 inch with a wooden piece(more Chinese guns seem to have this problem, cfr. the fast deer rifle). Another minus point, but faithful to the real ak47, is the trigger. It has no clear breaking point and it feels like you are simply pulling a lever. One last remark: I am very suspicious about fixed barrel airguns concerning safety. I always drill two holes (even in my HW97k!) through the tube, so I can I block the cilinder with a rod while reloading. My fingers are more important than aesthetics!

This concludes my very first review ever. I hope it’s useful to someone!

I highly recommend this little rifle because it is fun to shoot. Its built with almost no plastic parts and it is amazingly accurate at short ranges out to around 30 ft. Considering what it costs I think it is hard to beat. I would like to see a fake magazine added for looks and pellet storage. I have seen this rifle modified in this way

Okay I like it, not just a little, but alot; and I still don’t really know why; maybe because it has a recoil to it.

I customized mine during the rainy season, New furniture and even a good muzzle break ( Asthetics) , I use this as my “HEYGETYOUR *&*%* DOG OUTTA MY GARBAGECAN” rifle. No I don’t shoot Dogs, but they really get spooked when the lead hits the bin. Accurate? you bet, the other guy posted cottontails out to 30 Yds; how about Chattering squirrel at approx 45 Yds. ( Gotta do somthin about my Squirrel overpopulation)

My B3 AK47 in .177 caliber is built like a tank. Very strudy built air gun with assualt rifle looks. This is the gun I got my wife hooked on shooting with and it’s hers now. Plenty powerful for plinking and little critters at short range. The sights are just like those on a real AK rifle and can be adjusted by using an SKS/AK sight adjustment tool. The built in scope rail is lacking with no scope stop, but I tightened up the rings by running red Loctite in the dovetails and added a layer of Goop on the mounts/rails. The cheapo Chinese 4X25 scope hasn’t moved and still stands up to this springer’s abuse. The folding stock is very well made and allows this fun gun to be carried in a duffle or large back pack. Great little gun for shooting cans and all around plinking. Cocking effort is managable by my wife and she loves to shoot it. Got one for my nephew as a Christmas gift two years ago and he regulary takes cotton tails with his in .177 out to 30 yards.
