Yes, they are know for accuracy. More so on the 853 and 753 models. Those are supposed to have a LW barrel on them from what I understand. The 953, the one that I have, is the more entry level model and doesn't have the LW barrel on it. I recently bought this one used off of the classifieds on another airgun site so it's fairly new to me. It's low powered and designed to be an entry level youth 10m rifle. It's so fun and refreshing.
