Took the gun to Targetmaster today and shot it indoor at 30Y and all the way at 44Y (they advertise it for 50Y, but it’s only 44Y).

With pellets it likes (JSB Exact Heavy 10.34gr):
At 30Y it groups at .340” center to center.
At 44Y it groups at 0.901” center to center.

The accuracy is as good as a standard 22LR. The shooting experience is awesome (especially with that nice crisp trigger).
I’m impressed!

Here's the targets (red dots are 0.5")

How loud is it as compared to a .22lr

Not comparable. You can shoot it inside the house without any hearing protection and no discomfort. It's like shooting subsonics through a suppressed 22lr gun.

its a good tool for beginners to practice with, you can shoot in your back yard, practicing the same basic skills as with a center fire rifle

Those springers are tough on scopes, looks like your mounts are spot on. Its amazing how accurate these things are. You get what you payfor

Yeh...The springers and some other guns (like the FAL) are pretty hard on scopes. The scope and mounts on this one are pretty cheap, but they are holding very well.
BTW I'm not sure this is a good tool for beginners to practice basic skills for center fire rifles. It's pretty heavy, not cheap, and shines best with a light hold.

For me it's an awesome gun. I'm a huge gun enthusiast and I like developing and expanding my skills and knowledge with various type of weapons. Shooting long range, rimfire, pistol, etc... are all very different and require specific knowledge and skills. This high end springer is a new area for me to explore and I like it very much.

Went back to Targetmaster and shot these groups from 15, 30 and 42Y.
42 Y is the max at that range if you don't want to risk to have the target support get derailed.

I can't believe the gun was able to print a 0.362" 5 shot group at 42Y!
