Stoeger S4000-E .177 Break-barrel Air Rifle - Pre-fire overview
[UWSL]Heavy, but balanced.[/UWSL] [UWSL]Nice stock without that hollow sound when firing. I normally stuff them with a couple lint-free clean rags to absorb that, but I won't need to with this one.[/UWSL]
[UWSL]Long, but thin gun. Doesn't mean anything, but it's different than what I'm used to.[/UWSL]
[UWSL]So far, fine accuracy. The sights hold true.[/UWSL] [UWSL]REALLY clean shot cycle. Smooth backward motion, no sharp hit to any body parts, butt-pad does a fine job, very little felt recoil.[/UWSL]
[UWSL]Quiet, but, of course, not "silent". Even forgoing the mechanics of the gun, the shot is just slightly lower than the audio report of my other two .177 break-barrels of similar class.[/UWSL]
[UWSL]I DO enjoy the yellow vs red front-sight, but that's just me.[/UWSL]
[UWSL]I'm trying to come up with a complaint, but none yet. Time will tell, so I must remember to curb my enthusiasm. [/UWSL]
Today with a scope. Trigger is metal. Stiff, but crisp for an airgun. Consistent.
I am still enjoying how little "kick" it has. It's a smooth-even shooter.
As close as I have is the Gamo Whisper Silent Cat. Both in the same price-range (about $150 new). .177 break-barrels.
Although the Stoeger looks sweet, the Gamo out-shoots it more consistently.
Or I do, but either way, the Stoeger is up for sale in the airgun classified. The Gamo is still on the wall, a "keeper" for now.
