By Jerry from USA on 2009-11-19 18:51:01Things I liked:Just got my 22 discovery today, I have both Marauders and both discoveries. This 22 seems to shoot very fast, I only get from 10 to 15 shots on a fill up, compared to the 17 calibers 25 shots. This gun is very powerful I put a 16 power scope on it and as fast as I pull the trigger the pellet hits the target, I use the 14.5 grain Crossman pellets. This guns power supply would easily handle a 25 caliber. It is definitely an Air hog, it seems to have a sweet spot at about 1500 PSI above that it throws flyers,something the other guns don't do. But that is because of the speed of the pellet IMHO,. Speed in excess of about 1100 FPS seems to do that and from what I can Judge, this is the fastest gun of all the other three. I don't have a way of testing the speed , but it is obvious that this is by far the most powerful of all the New rifles Benjamin made. It is light, and a breezy to carry, and I have also done installed sling swivels. The gun might settle down when it is shot a lot, but for now it is a screamer. I'd like for it to shoot the 900 advertised speed, it for sure is faster than mu Marauder 17 and 22 and the Discovery 17. So maybe it is because it is throwing out more air Not for sure, time will tell. My other 3 Benjamin's will take the lid off of a plastic soda bottle pointing towards me at 30 yards consistant from my bench, I hope this one does the same after a few more break in shots,.
Things I would have changed:Well it seems like it's all intact, some sling swivels would be nice, But I done put mine on..
What others should know:This gun is powerful, if it is bought for one of your youngsters, by all means coach him or her before turning them loose with this gun, it definitely isn't a toy, it is by far more powerful than a CB cap,,. It will probably take down a Raccoon real easy, at least mine will I have no doubt about it..

By Andrew from USA on 2013-11-20 09:01:49Things I liked:Inexpensive. Crosman customer service. Pyramyd's return policy.
Things I would have changed:Quality control. This rifle was missing the stock mounting screw and the lower set screw for the barrel band. It also leaked badly. Crosman needs to step it up with the quality control, this is unacceptable for a brand new rifle even an inexpensive one.
What others should know:Pyramyd was easy to deal with and I returned this rifle. I would caution the buyer to spend the extra 10 dollars to assure you get a complete and working rifle. Sadly these day's you never know what you will get sight unseen. I have been purchasing Crosman products for over 40 years. Lately it seems to be hit or miss with them. As a company they are prompt to respond and help with any issue. I only wish they would take more time inspecting what they sell. I do own quite a few of their PCP rifles now and up to this point I had no problems. Just a lemon I'm sure but be aware that you too could end up with something that left the factory incomplete and leaking.
