Things I liked:Let me start off by saying this is the best airgun I have ever owned. I ordered it in .22 for small game hunting. It has it's ups and downs, but it has done nothing but impress me so far. Ordered this gun with the 20 for 20 service, and I'm REALLY impressed with how well my scope was mounted. Out of the box, this gun was ready to shoot. Literally. Highly recommend that service. And the Flambeau case that came with the 20 for 20 service(an additional $35 however) is very nice. Any how, this gun is somewhat heavy compared to my gamo bone collector, which I like. It is also much quieter than my gamo bone collector, and more accurate too. Things I would have changed:The scope and the trigger. I wish I would have bought a leapers to compliment this gun, but the folks at pyramyd air did such a great job of mounting the scope included I don't want to take it off! And yes, the trigger is very bad, but I'll address how to properly use it in order to achieve maximum accuracy below. What others should know:Buy this gun in .22, because I know for a fact that it shoots dead on with Crossman Premier hollow points, which are dirt cheap. Now, this may sound kind of silly, but in order to shoot accurately with this gun, you must pull the trigger rather fast but at a consistent pace. You don't want to pull and stop at the second stage, then pull again. You want to not jerk, but squeeze the trigger pretty fast, almost in a jerk-like motion. And use the artillery hold. I have no doubt in my mind that I can hit a 2" by 2" target at 70 yards using this simple trick. So, pull the trigger as fast as you possibly can while keeping the cross hairs on target. It's hard at first, but when your getting more squirrels than all your friends you'll thank me for it. And one more thing. Do yourself a favor, and jump on that 20 for 20 service. I thought I was good and experienced with scope mounting, but pyramyd air did a much finer job of mounting that scope than I ever could...
Things I liked:This gun is amazing, I received it yesterday, it is my first PCP air rifle, and it is far better than all of my spring guns. I usually don't write reviews on products I've only had for a day, but I'm pretty confident this gun will shoot the same as it does now a year from now. I bought this gun in .22 caliber for squirrel hunting, and I bought it with the intentions that it would out-perform my springers. It does. This gun is VERY light, which to some may be a good or bad thing, personally I like a little heft to my guns but not a problem. I was a little concerned that I would have problems filling it with air using the included pump, but it is very straight forward and easy to do. The pump included with the gun seems like a quality pump, and I have put 100-200 rounds through the gun with no problems filling it whatsoever. Its very nice that the gun includes open sights, its just nice to have that option if that's more your cup of tea. However, this gun REALLY DOES beg to be scoped. I'll get to the details on that below. Things I would have changed:I do not like the plastic trigger, and the plastic trigger guard. There is a rattly part in the trigger, which bugs me a lot. Also the trigger pull could be just a tad lighter. I won't dock a star on the gun's rating for any of that though. That's it for cons. What others should know:I have achieved very good accuracy from this gun so far. I mounted a leapers 3-9X40 scope which was around $110 with shipping. I have tried mounting the exact same scope on 2 other spring rifles, both rifles destroyed the same model scope. Not so with the Discovery. I simply snugged the bolts down on the scope mounts, and the scope doesn't shift at all through the mounts, and the POI is the same EVERY SHOT. This was amazing to me, something I was never capable of achieving with spring rifles. It is important to not over-tighten the screws, be generous to them, this is a PCP so you don't have to worry about recoil. This gun does operate exceptionally well with crossman premier hollow points(14.6 grain I think) however the best pellets hands down are the JSB Exact Jumbo Heavies(18.13gr). Take advantage of Pyramyd Air's great deal like I did, buy 3 tins of pellets and get the fourth free. That way your getting a lot of pellets which you can only purchase via the internet, and your only paying for shipping once; Rather than buying a tin now, then buying another tin later, and continuously paying for shipping every time. It just makes sense. Anyhow, with these pellets I achieved a 1" group(all pellets do go through same hole). If I was better with scopes and I had more experience with PCP's, I could narrow that down to a 1/2" group easily. So if you're fed up with spring rifles and are looking for a better and more realiable alternative, do yourself a favor and buy the Discovery.
Things I liked:These pellets are very nice pellets, compare a tin of these and crossman premier hollow points side by side and you will see the difference in quality. I was really impressed with how fast these were shipped, and the quality of the shipping package. It was like opening a fancy Christmas present. Also inside of the tin of pellets, there is a soft padding to cushion the pellets, which I have never seen in any other tin of pellets. I can achieve some really nice groups putting these through my Benjamin Discovery. Things I would have changed:Nothing, other than maybe a threaded tin cover... What others should know:These pellets, being rather heavy at 18.13 grains, delivery superior accuracy and lots of energy, making them very suitable for hunting... Definitely my choice of pellets next time I go squirrel hunting. And just an FYI, if you are going to buy these pellets, or any pellets that aren't sold in stores, do take advantage of the "buy 3 tins of pellets get the fourth free" deal. It really is a good deal.
Things I liked:The ability to extend the legs, and the ability to mount it to swivel or picatinny mounts. The legs fold up and down nice and smoothly. Things I would have changed:Make the legs extend further.. What others should know:I bought this for my Benjamin Discovery .22, which didn't have any sling mounts, so I bought the GrovTec Quick-Detach Sling Swivel Stud and installed that; and immediately installed the UTG bipod after. Quick and easy, helps my groups a lot.
