I`ve talk to several people that own them and they all loved them. The trigger pull is horrible, but that can be fixed. I also don`t like Tasco scopes, but that can be replaced. I would reather see you buy one without a scope and put on a better scope, but if you can`t find one cheaper without a scope, at least you have some tradeing matteral if the scope fails you. They`re not a custom gun, but they do a great job for the money.
