I recently picked up on of these new 1377s on sale for $34 and am very surprised by the accuracy with the stock sights and the power of this inexpensive air gun. Today with 8 pumps in a stiff breeze I put a 6" balloon out 90ft and hit it 3 for 3 using 7.4 gr pointed Premier pellets free handed(and I'm not a very good shot). I can only imagine what you could do with a scope. As soon as I can figure out where in my yard I can shoot it at 100ft without alarming the neighbors I'll try. I know they probably don't make them as well as the old 1377s but if you want to upgrade/modify you can. If you have a strong arm and don't mind all the pumping and single shot bolt operation it's a lot of fun. If I had to do all that pumping for one shot with my 357, I'd probably shoot it a lot more accurately than I do.
