well took it out today and it liked the crosman hunting pellets I had better than the Benjamin domed hollowpoint version and the only thing I founf wrong was the rear sight was cracked underneath where the screw goes in to hold the adjuster together so Monday I hope they will send me a new one! but other than that the gun shoots great with lots of power!

I would crony the gun to be sure power is up to snuff. They have a problem with leakage due to welding on the scope rail. The first one I tested shot at about 14ftlbs which is low for a standard gun, but horrible for a magnum. That leakage also contributes to accuracy problems and scope breakage.
If you don't have a crony you can open the gun up and look to see if the problem exists which will be obvious with holes in the welded area that the main seal passes over. If you have it apart you might as well install a new main seal since the originals are almost always damaged during install from the sharp edges of the cocking slot. So ideally you should file/grind/sand those sharp edges before installing the new seal. Plus a good aftermarket seal will be better all around anyway. There are other things you can do while it's apart to make the gun better, like smoothing the rough transfer port, making sure the breech seal has a smooth surface to seal against, piston buttons to reduce wear and cocking effort, etc... I have info on that stuff if you're interested in going that far.

If by grooved you mean dovetail then it should be fine, it's the welded on picatinny rail like in the link below that's the problem.

Sometimes those reviews have some good info too.
For the other info I mentioned write me at chevota at hotmail and I'll send it, just remind me of who you are.
You might check out vortekproducts.com too. Their tune kit is too expensive imo, especially for a Ruger, but a good source for a main seal and/or main spring.
