They are good for the money. Shoot my two at 15 feet when I do not open attic door when snow on the roof. I shoot daily year round in the house. Takes wear and tear off my good guns at such a sort distance. :)

I just got it this year, only with synthetic stock aviable. https://www.princessauto.com/en/break-b ... 0008861726
This cheap rifle is a little surprise. It is small, light and very little noise. The cocking is very easy compared to my other 495 break barrels, and this is about 4-5 inches short make it a very kid/girl-friendly gun. :mrgreen:

The held feeling is also good, as well as I feel very little recoil when shooting. Triger is little hard but not the hardest--about half of a Dasiy 880, and I think it is a single stage as it has a very short release.
So far, I just tried at in door and the Chorny is reading about 440-490(Straight out of box, no lube/tune/clean). I put a cheap 3-7x28 scope, and it does keep putting pellets into same hole at about 8yd. This is a perfect in door/short range target/plinker and very good for training your kids. The only short coming is it doesn't have safety--I don't mind putting few more $ to have this function!

I will try it at the local range this weekend to see the outdoor performance --it is still worm here in GTA this year so I think it should not be an issue for using couple more weeks in range

Just an update for this rifle, as both tried in/outdoor.
Last Saturday is very rainy and windy--in GTA everyone should know that--luckily the club I'm with have in door pellet shoot house--of course targets are outdoor and we shoot through slidable windows. However, I did manage to hit large soup can size repeatly with this little thing at 30 yards in that weather!! With bit over holding I managed to get that can 5 times in strong wind and rain, which had amazed me then.

After hundreds of rounds, here is something for the rifle:
1. It is weighted about 5lbs, an advantage and disadvantage. Since it is not heavy enough, the vibration is not able to be absorbed by stock (stock is cheap built too). Even after I tried to lube with molly and silicon grease as much as I could. And because of that it has some Radom flyers all the time--every 1 or 2 within 10 shots. I am very sure it is not me as there is no way that I would put .177 pellets almost 3 inches away from the aim point at 8 yards!! And I'm mostly it is not the scope--the Daisy 4x15 that holds well in my other rifles, but this little thing just vibrates a lot and jumps every shot, and I am not sure if the scope can last.
2. The trigger is also not very consistent--sometimes it suddenly getting very hard to pull, about 70% time it is just fine, another reason for the flyers.
3. The structure is not mod friendly--I am not able to remove the trigger--and since I don't have diagram, I would do that otherwise it may not be able to put together. The tiger crock mechanism is built inside the gun behind the piston and connected with the spring... and the trigger is inside it as well and so far, I can tell, there is no way to adjust the trigger.

Otherwise, it is OK. But I'm not suggest having it as first air rifle if you just start playing--it has lots of potentials and need many works on it, and the in-consistency may drive a newbie crazy!

Have you tightened the screws after every time you use it? Springers are good at loosening screws and even more so with the more vibratory models, as this one seems to be.
Blue locktight works wonders for keeping screws tight.
