Things I liked:Awesome accuracy and ergonomics for such an affordable pistol. Things I would have changed:Nothing. I like that the 2240 platform allows for so many modifications for accuracy, power and bling. If you tinker, this is the air pistol for you!! What others should know:This pistol stock is quite accurate and comfortable in the hand. That said, if you like to fiddle with stuff, this is the finest pistol for aftermarket modifications.
Things I liked:The Shooting Chrony just plain works. The fold-up design protects internal components and makes it easier to transport. Things I would have changed:I would like to see the cost of accessories and add-on devices drop a bit. What others should know:Be very meticulous in the setup of the Shooting Chrony. When I first received the device, I got a lot of errors. I found that the projectile must fly directly over the small sensors of the chrony to properly register a reading. This means you may need to do some test shots to see that your barrel alignment is really close to the centerline of the Chrony. Also, a tripod is a really useful accessory to have for the Chrony.
Things I liked:Pistol looks terrific, is nicely balanced and is a comfortable weight. Repeater clip inserts and ejects easily. This pistol is fun to shoot, but will lose lots of velocity and accuracy when shot rapid fire. Great for general plinking or to teach young folks proper handgun safety. Things I would have changed:This pistol needs an adjustable rear sight. At minimum, an adjustment for windage. The PA-recommended Walther flashlight/laser combo sound nice, but is a bit pricey. Because of the sliding bolt, I cannot see a way to install an alternative sighting device.
What others should know:Lots of fun to shoot; horribly inaccurate. Forget grouping size with this pistol. My PX4 Storm shoots high and to the right at 5M. Just load it up and fire it off. I feel this pistol is over priced by $30-$40.
Things I liked:This is a fun pistol to shoot. It feels very comfortable in my hand, has realistic blowback action and the magazine ejects and loads very well. Shot count per powerlet is quite good, too. Things I would have changed:Accuracy is pretty poor. A rear adjustable sight would have helped tremendously. A laser sight is helpful to improving the accuracy. What others should know:Buy lots of ammo because you will go through pellets and BBs quickly. You would be suprosed how fast you can fire off 16 shots.Remember that velocity will fall off quickly in rapid fire. That is just the nature of the physics of CO2. Buy a laser to mount under the front of the pistol to help improve accuracy. Buy at least one more magazine so you can shoot more with fewer reloads. Based on the competition, this pistol is overpriced by $30-$40.
Things I liked:These are good quality plinking pellets. I use Hobby as my standard pellet for testing airgun performance with my chronograph. Things I would have changed:Nothing What others should know:Not the cheapest, but definitely very well made with excellent conformity.
Things I liked:World-class quality pellets as one would expect from JSB. The pellets are very clean and uniform. Things I would have changed:Nothing What others should know:This is one of the better target shooting diabolos sold at PA. For general plinking, this pellet is pricey.
Things I liked:These mounts are quite secure. I chose them both for price and that they had two set screws on the dovetail base mount. Things I would have changed:Nothing What others should know:These are a good value.
Things I liked:This compact scope is outstanding for the price. Optics are clear, adjustment knobs move nicely and windage and elevation knobs have the right amount of 'click'. I mounted this scope on a Crosman 1377 custom carbine and it really is a tack driver. Things I would have changed:Nothing What others should know:If your gun shoots accurately, this scope will allow you to shoot accurately at longer distances.
Things I liked:This is a terrific scope. The optics are clear, and the windage and elevation knobs have just the right amount of 'click'. Things I would have changed:Nothing What others should know:Though the scope is advertised as long eye relief, I find it does not work for me as a pistol scope. I am not comfortable holding a pistol 4" from my eye. This is a perfect scope for shooting at distances from 10-25 yards.
Things I liked:Very well made risers. Nice feature to spread the base for slightly wider dovetails. Things I would have changed:Nothing What others should know:I used these risers to lift my Williams open sight and front post sight on a Crosman Custom pistol fitted with a multishot breech. The rotary clip that fit in the breech was interfering with the sight picture.
Things I liked:Nice, useful product. Things I would have changed:Lower price What others should know:Repeating guns are all the rage. When bullseye shooting, though, it is nice to have a single shot tray. This allows me to pause between shots, breathe and concentrate on the target before the next shot. The single shot tray forces me into a slower routine that has improved my target shooting.
Things I liked:Projected images on the reticles are quite sharp. Mounted on a Crosman custom 2300KT pistol I get terrific groups on the bench at 10M. I need to do my part when shooting offhand as the pistol/sight combo is very accurate. Things I would have changed:Nothing. What others should know:This is a very nice sight. It seems to hold zero well. I find brightness level #3 is fine for indoor shooting.
Things I liked:My primary target pistol shoots the Meisterkugeln Rifle pellets very well so I stocked up on several cans. Actually, all my air pistols shoot these pellets very accurately. Things I would have changed:Not a thing What others should know:RWS makes world-class ammunition. The pellets are clean, and shape and size are extremely consistant.
Things I liked:Crosman recommends using it so I do. It works . What others should know:Definitly top off every two or three CO2 cartridges with a drop of Pellgunoil. This can also be used to lubricate bolts, pivot points and o-rings.
Things I liked:Well-made pellets from a world class manufacturer. I used the Hobby pellets as a standard for chronograph testing and general plinking. These are also very good for target shooting, too. What others should know:These pellets may cost a tad bit more than Crosman or Gamo for plinking, but the quality is much better.
Things I liked:The H&N Sport is one of my top choices for plinking and target shooting. This is a world-class pellet from a world-class manufacturer. What others should know:Sure, you can buy cheaper Crosman or Gamo ammo, but the quality is not up to the level of H&N.
Things I liked:I have no complaints on this value priced adapter. I needed a weaver rail to mount a red dot on a Crosman 2240 with a dovetail cut on the Crosman steel breech. It works and feels very solid.
Things I liked:The product works. I am told it is a superior lubricant. What others should know:I have read that many moly pastes, particularly the stuff you might find at an auto parts store, does not contain high amounts of moly. I assume the Air Venturi moly paste does.
Things I liked:RWS is a world-class manufcturer. This pellet is well made and very accurate in my multi-pump pneumatic carbine. I also fine that the Superdome shoots well from most of my other pump and CO2 guns.
Things I liked:JSB is a world-class manufcturer. This pellet is well made and very accurate in my multi-pump pneumatic carbine. I also fine that the Exact Diabolos shoot well from most of my other pump and CO2 guns.
Things I liked:H&N makes these pellets for Beeman so you know it will be a well made product. I recently started target shooting in .20 and found that there are not many wadcutter diabolo pellets available. This is one of the few and shoots accurately in my vintage Sheridan E pistol.
Things I liked:JSB is a world-class manufcturer. This pellet is well made and very accurate in my multi-pump pneumatic carbine. The extra weight of the Heavy provides for increased fpe. I also fine that the Heavy shoots well from most of my other pump and CO2 guns.
Things I liked:These pellets shoot as well as many that are more expensive. What others should know:For the average target shooter, H&N Sport pellets offer a very good good accuracy at a reasonable price.
Things I liked:Awesome, awesome, awesome! These pellets are super accurate in most every airgun I have. They perform extremely well in guns that shoot 600 fps and higher. What others should know:These pellets are made by JSB and cost a bit less. Buy them; they are terrific.
Things I liked:Probably the best value pellet you can buy. The H&N Sports shoot as well as more expensive pellets. What others should know:Good for target shooting, plinking and small varmint eradication. These should shoot well in various airguns.
Things I liked:I like shooting 10M pistol. This pack of targets is a good value. What others should know:Always use a firm backing with any paper target to produce crisp holes. Of course, use wadcutter diabolos.
Things I liked:These pellets are on the crude side. Bottom of the pellet skirts are rough and lots of chaff and oil in the can. Things I would have changed:Tighten up manufacturing tolerances What others should know:While the appearance of the pellets was unfavorable, they do group well. Not as well as world-class leaders like H&N and JSB, but well enough for plinking or hunting. What is stunning is the fpe they can generate with high powered rifles, offering excellent knock down power.
Things I liked:Great value rings. They work well for my applications. What others should know:I do not take guns into the field, so I cannot comment on their durability against knocks. For range shooting on carefully handled guns, these are fine.
Things I liked:These are terrific pellets that shoot well out of most of my airguns. What others should know:AA pellets are made by JSB; just a little cheaper. My AA S510 absolutely loves these things!! I have since re-ordered more.
Things I liked:Just awesome! Optics are crystal clear, reticle is very fine and turrets are easy to turn with positive clicks that hold position. I am still trying to figure out how to use the MAP 6 reticle. What others should know:If I had to do it over again, I probably would have gone with the 50mm size just for the extra light gathering ability of the scope. Nonetheless, this scope is mounted on an AA S510 and is a pleasure to use.
Things I liked:I purchased an Air Arms S510 and decided it needed a top quality socpe mount. The BKL is well built and I really like the double strap for scope mounting. What others should know:Scope mounting, done properly, is time consuming and frustrating. The double strap design of these scope rings makes the job of squaring up the reticle to the breech/barrel a bit easier. Now I can make small adjustments during tightening to insure my scope is a level as I can make it.
Things I liked:Very uniform pellets that shoot very accurately in a number of different airguns. I primarily shoot these in an AA S510. What others should know:These are re-branded JSB pellets using AA dies so you know you are getting a quality product.
Things I liked:Uniform, well made and accurate in many of my airguns. I mostly shoot targets and find these pellets are a great value for their cost. These also are one of the better pellets to feed my vintage Crosman 600. What others should know:Try a tin. These provide much better accuracy than run-of-the-mill pellets by Crosman, Gamo and Daisy. That is not to say that you may find particualr pellets from those brands that perform well for you, only my testing has shown the H&N Sport superior for my purposes.
Things I liked:This is probably my third or fourth order of H&N Sport pellets. These are well made and accurate in most of my airguns. What others should know:I do a lot of target shooting and find, at my skill level, that the Sports are very capable of producing good scores off hand. If I am benchresting, I will often choose a more expensive world-class pellet.
Things I liked:Well-designed and relatively solid offset mount. AS with many BKL mounts, having the screws also funtion as a mount spreader makes removal very easy. Things I would have changed:Engineer a scope stop into the mount. What others should know:This mount is ideal for mounting a compact scope on a rifle. It provides emoungh offset to place the eye piece in a good position back on the gun. If you use this mount on a medium to heavy recoil spring air rifle, get a scope stop. Though the mount is solid, it will creep down the dovetail.
Things I liked:Fro a quick clean, it is hard to beat felt pellets. Things I would have changed:These could be sold cheaper, I would think. What others should know:Read the instructions carefully if you plan to use these on a spring or piston powered air rifle. In this case, three felt cleaning pellets should provide enough resistance to prevent the piston from banging the end of the compression tube.
Things I liked:Rock solid and self-centering are traits that make BKL mounts so very good. What others should know:When you spend several hundred dolllars on a fine airgun with quality optics, don't cheap out on your mounts.
Things I liked:World-class quality! Very accurate match pellets with consistant size and finish from tin to tin. What others should know:I like these pellets for target shooting with a gun that produces velocities of 600 fps and higher.
Things I liked:This pellet performs very well in both my vintage Sheridan E pistol and Beeman R7. What others should know:There are not many pellets choices in .20. Beeman's offerings are qmong the best.
Things I liked:If Hill recommends this grease, that is what I am going to use. Things I would have changed:Priced at a premium What others should know:Use it to maintain your Hill Pump. This grease is also good for o-ring lubrication in some applications.
Things I liked:People have raved about this product for years and years. I finally decided to give it a try. For basic cleaning it has performed well. Things I would have changed:Larger quantity for the price What others should know:I cannot comment on long term effectiveness, but have read that, aside from very harsh environmental conditions, Ballistol is an excellent all around cleaner/preservative for metal, wood and plastic. It also provides a protective barrier against water and dirt.
Things I liked:Yes, Virginia, there are BBs other than Copperheads! Just when I thought a BB was a BB, I gave the Daisy brand a try in a Dan Wesson 8" BB revolver. Well, I can say from experience that these BBs shoot very well. What others should know:If you shoot BB guns, you have to try the Daisy Premium Grade!
Things I liked:AA Falcons are well made and uniform pellets. The Thinner skirts catch the barrel rifling very well. What others should know:JSB makes these pellets for AA so the quality you expect is in this product.
Things I liked:Bought several different BBs to test in a new Dan Wesson 8" BB revolver. The Avanti brand produced some of the best groupings. What others should know:There is a difference between BBs just like there is a difference between pellets. If you shoot BB guns, try other brands to find the ones that shoot best for you.
Things I liked:Nice looking gun, the right amount of heft and mostly constructed of metal. The gun works pretty well, and can be amazingly accurate for a BB gun with the right ammo. BB velocities are spot on with the product specs. This is a realistic and fun shooter, and the only BB gun I think I will hold on to. Things I would have changed:Quality control for a mass produced item is always a challenge. The first revolver I had would periodically misfire and the trigger group would click and the hammer moved slightly before it fired. I returned it to PA for a replacement. The replacement trigger feels very different than the first pistol. The hammer is sloppy (forward and sideways wiggle) and stands off from the valve stem @1/8". The replacement pistol is easier to fire in double action. One would prefer that each pistol was pretty much the same. What others should know:I was not initially sold on this pistol when I first got it. Shot through two CO2 cartridges and it started to grow on me. Mounted a mini red dot on top and it started to be just plain fun. Handed it to my wife and she hit three plastic bottles at 10-15 yards in sequence. Now she is on board.
Things I liked:The Dan Wesson is a good looking BB gun with realistic revolver action. It feels comfortable in my hand thanks to all metal construction. Weight and balance are excellent. This is the most accurate BB pistol I have ever shot. BB velocities are similar to those stated by the manufacturer. It begs you to fire six more rounds just when you are ready to put it away for the day. Things I would have changed:Power adjuster would be a nice feature to add. What others should know:This is a mass produced product, and there can be problems. There were flaws with trigger group of the first pistol I purchased. PA swiftly replaced that with another Dan Wesson 8" revolver. The replacement pistol is not perfect, but it functions properly. Keep in mind that this is a BB pistol, don't raise your expectations too high, and you will be satisfied.
Things I liked:Easy to Use Things I would have changed:Lower price What others should know:I really do not know how effective the Dry-Pac is, but do know that moisture in a PCP system is not good. So, I use the stuff. I also keep the tank/cylinder I am filling above the base of the pump so any moisture that may be in the line has a tendency to fall away from my tank.
Things I liked:The CPUM is a decent pellet that shoots well out of several .22 guns. What others should know:Everyone should at least try Crosman Premier pellets. They often shoot pretty well out of a variety of guns.
Things I liked:A very awesome and accurate pellet in several of my .177 guns. What others should know:You really should try AA pellets. They are made by a well known Czech manufacturer using AA specifications.
Things I liked:This is the first RS pellet I've tried. It is as awesome as the other JSB pellets. What others should know:The RS line is as good as any other in the line of JSB pellets. I already ordered a few more tins of these after only shooting 50 from the first tin.
Things I liked:Installed a .20 caliber Lothar Walther barrel on a Crosman Custom Shop pistol. It is very accurate with the Silver Bears. So much so, I recently ordered 15 more tins. Things I would have changed:Give us 50 more in the tin or drop the price a bit. What others should know:With three .20 cal. guns loving these pellets, I always recommend them. Also,, Why I keep reviewing these pellets? I keep ordering them and PA requests a review. Don't be surprised if I say the same thing several more times.
Things I liked:I bought one two years ago and recently purchased another. It is a solid dot sight. Mounts securely and holds zero. What others should know:I mostly shoot targets and do not use any setting other than the smallest dot. If you change to different reticles, you may need to re-zero. Once set, the sight holds to that zero very well. Remember to loosen the rear mounting screw to make adjustments. It is in the manual, but some forget to do this.
Things I liked:Good price for official NRA targets. What others should know:I am a casual target shooter and found that shooting the regular BR-40 was difficult because you are aiming at one big black spot from the 10M line. The BR-40R has the ten ring in contrasting red giving me something to aim for.
Things I liked:That you can rebuild your Hill Pump is terrific. Once you figure out the dis-assembly procedure using the mixture of documentation on the Hill website, it gets easier each time thereafter. Things I would have changed:Seriously, $36 for o-rings? Sure, you get the check valve, filter and spring, but this kit could sell for a bit less. What others should know:I hand pump my few PCPs. That is shy I choose to shoot guns with smaller reservoirs. If you do not regularly maintain your Hill pump, at some time in the future you are going to realize you are pumping more than you did when the pump was new. That is a classic sign you may need to reseal the pump. Keep it lubed, too!
Things I liked:I recently tried the RS for medium-powered .22 pistol. These pellets were very accurate and consistent, plus I was able to eke out some additional velocity due to the reduced weight. Things I would have changed:Nothing. JSB is top tier all the way. What others should know:You would be surprised how a little weight reduction can mean higher pellet velocities and flatter trajectories for low to medium-powered .22 airguns. The Jumbo RS is an excellent addition to the JSB line up.
