if so,
What is it like to use? Generally not bad, is nose heavy and does benefit from a good butt hook as the supplied butt pad doesn't connect with shoulder very well
What is the cocking mechanism like to use? Initially feels rough, but does "self polish and and become smoother in time. Bear in mind it is stiff because you are cocking the hammer spring directly. Soon however you tend not to think about it then soon after not notice anymore.
What is it like to load? Looks like it is going to be fiddly but there is a technique to it, namely pointing the rifle down slightly and almost dropping the pellet onto the trough or into the barrel. Too be honest you very soon get used to it and it stops being an issue.
How many consistent shots does it deliver? Tested over a 100 useable shots (tolerance of +/- 10fps) with a 232bar fill
What groups at 55yards can be achieved with it? Have had single ragged holes at 20yds off a bench, and have had thumbnail size groups at 50yrds
Photos of groups would be helpful.

Any other pertinent information would be much appreciated, Thanks.
Trigger is adjustable and although may not be to a Walther LG300 or Steyr LG110 standard is still very useable and all this for 40-50% of the price.
