By Geoff from USA on 2009-02-12 19:01:01Things I liked:How can you not love an American classic? After reading several reviews and online buzz you get a better understanding of just how attached people can and do get to this gun. When you first open the box, how can you not smile. The finish is fantastic. My wife thought it looked like a shotgun because of the air chamber I guess, underneath the barrel. The weight is perfect for any age, & will not fatigue if carrying for hunting for example. There simply is not another gun out there near this price range that can touch this quality of workmanship, accuracy, aesthetics, and fun factor. From the very 1st shot you take you are grinning from ear to ear. A little shocked at the crack it gives when discharging at first, but it makes you say "WOW" there is definitely plenty of power here. If backyard shooting, you definitely don't need to pump it the full 8 times. 4 or 5 is DEFINITELY enough. 5 pumps will go through metal cans & water bottles, even dispatch squirrels or small rodents. Once the sights are set & tightened to "your" personal liking, forget it for good! You almost can't miss your target!!! If you are in the market for a new gun, a first timer, or just wanting something different from what you have, don't even think for another second. Just buy it. I can almost guarantee whatever caliber you buy, you will want the other caliber immediately. I can guess with high confidence this gun does NOT get returned or exchanged, because your first impression should be way more than you'd expect for what you paid.
Things I would have changed:A little bit better finish on the bluing. Mine had a bump on the top of the barrel, and the first time I touched it, the bump came off and exposed the finish underneath. Other than that, just the cocking effort. It can be a little tough after quite a few rounds are dispatched through it. You will definitely get a workout! Other than that, nothing.
What others should know:If using just for close target shooting, i.e. 50FT. or less, don't bother with a scope. The open sights are tight and fantastic! If you Might be using it for small game hunting occasionally, buy a Leapers bug buster or something similar in size. Otherwise, this gem is go to go right out of the box! Enjoy.......

By Gary from USA on 2015-06-27 11:32:39Things I liked:smooth trigger, very accurate and easy to shoot
Things I would have changed:Too hard to pump! With stock between legs while standing and left palm on top of breech it was very hard to break tension and start pump action with the right hand. After freeing pump lever the pump stroke was hard the whole way and very hard to complete which included a painful snap at closure. After sighting in and shooting about a hundred rounds my left palm was badly bruised and thankfully the pressure module would not hold pressure anymore and I was able to send back and buy the Benjamin Discovery which I hope will be a better experience.
What others should know:See above details.I started the air gun trip with the Gamo whisper fusion and still have the gun and will use it happily. The violent nature of the nitro piston recoil makes it very tricky to shoot well. I can hit the 4" gongs at 35-40 yds. steadily but would like to do the same with a 2" target. Maybe the pcp will be the answer for me. I have a small 40 cu. ft. nitrogen cylinder and a fill kit a welding shop friend put together for me complete with a pressure release valve and I am just waiting for the Disco to get here. Jerry at Pyramid Air was more than helpful in the successful resolution to this problem. I will recommend them highly to anyone who is interested,
