    Those of you who have held one in your hands, is it a good buy? Almost sounds too good to be true. Not sure if I want to go with the bargain or pay for a higher end gun. Looking to buy a .25 soon. 

    I own one and for the money, it’s a great accurate rifle. JSB Kings and King Heavys shoot beautifully. The trigger adjusted right where I like it. The only annoyance is the very stiff bolt cycling, but that improved acceptably with use.

    I've owned a 25 gauntlet for about 6 mos and I do like it. It hammers backyard pests out to 50+ yards and puts a magazine of jsb king heavies into a touching group at 35 yds.

    I know a lot of people rave about this gun, but I do find some annoyances which are almost too much to forgive. The first is definitely the random POI changes: it is a very accurate rifle but the poi seems to change with the weather. Yes, it groups pellets awesome but sometimes the group is 2 inches from the previous group. I tried all the tricks and nothing totally stopped the problem. The most effective improvement was stretching the moderator spring to put more pressure on the barrel, but it's still a problem. The trigger was horrible until I honed it. The bolt cycle is finally beginning to be reasonably smooth after 1k shots or so. It's a bit loud compared to a Marauder, and Hajimoto's baffles and stripper didn't seem to help, although they did seem to improve accuracy of the H&N grizzlies. Th stock is ugly. Why is there even a barrel band if it doesn't touch the barrel?

    Hey, other than that, like I said, I like it! I had a Marauder, but it leaked, and it wasn't regulated. If I could get a regulated Marauder for $400 (and didn't leak), I'd dump the gauntlet.

    seems like the the gauntlet has had some big improvements made to it, i remember a couple years ago Ted did not even want to review the gun because the  cocking bolt was so janky

    The power of the 25 Goblin is substantial at 40 sub foot pounds accuracy could be better one thing I wonder and I've been thinking about long time Tasco makes 2.5 x 10 mil. With a 10-yard parallax I wonder what this dope would do with that rifle since you could pick the scope up for less than 70 bucks just a thought guys and gals great gun for the price
