    Hi head shot.
    I have one, It's a beast. Saw a video on youtube, it was in Spanish, but it seems to get about 980 fps with 15 gr pellets.

    I am fairly new to breakneck air rifles, but after about 400 shots, my groupings are about an inch at 35 yards. I use a BSA 3-9x 40 scope, that was developed for magnum air rifles, and thus far it seems to hold up to the hard recoil. The open sights are very good though, in my opinion. The rear sights are riveted, and it seems the rivets are loosening.....

    All in all, I think it is a very good air rifle for the price, it is not a toy, and you can cancel your gym membership, it is hard to cock.

    Hope this helps...

    Do you need something that hits this hard?
    I have several magnum rifles, love them, but this sounds stupid.
    Remember you need to enjoy shooting it too.
    Go look at the following two guns before you decide.

    Diana 350 Magnum 5.5mm - Pellet Gun
    WEIHRAUCH 80. 5.5MM FAC - Pellet Gun

    I own both and they are just a pleasure to shoot, delivering around 20ft/lbs.
    You can also tame them and up the power with a Vortek kit, as I did.
