Things I liked:I bought this rifle for my fiance and she loves it. Got her a Leapers Bug Buster mounted on it and she can shoot with the best of them. It's really easy to cock and you can shoot all day without getting tired.
Things I would have changed:I'm not a fan of the fat stock. It just seems too fat near the trigger for me? But my fiance has no complaints at all.
What others should know:Accurate and easy to cock. Likes the Crosman Premier domed 7.9 gr pellets the best. Put a Bug Buster on it!
Things I liked:Amazing value and accuracy for the money. Perfect "quality" youth and training rifle. I gave this one to my 10 year old almost a year ago so I thought it was time to post a review of a "broken in" Bronco. After struggling with the factory rear sight I opted to install my trusty Williams aperture sight on the dovetail. This is the perfect fix for the poor stock rear sight and allowed this rifle to show it's true colors. After gaining experience with the peep sight and learning trigger and breathing control I decided to get him an inexpensive scope to allow him to take his accuracy skills further. The 3-9x32mm Centerpoint scope is a perfect value matched scope for this Bronco. Comes complete with 11mm dovetail rings and a illuminated mill-dot reticle for a great price. With this combination I have been able to achieve 3/8" groups at 25 yards very consistently. Been enjoying this one so much it is my go to rifle for sub 35 yard plinking and target shooting. Trained my ex-wife how to shoot with this one and now she is an excellent shot with all my air rifles. Very good trigger with neat double blade design that offers the feel of a good two stage setup at a much lower cost. Breaking quite clean and consistently at about 2 pounds this is quite a bit better than most rifles at this price range by far. Easy to cock at around 18 pounds my 10 year old son, now almost 11, has never had a problem cocking and loading this rifle. Best bang for buck in youth air rifles, great job folks!
Things I would have changed:Only the crappy rear sight should be trashed for an improved click adjustable open version from the factory. Otherwise an aftermarket peep sight or scope will fix you right up for little money.
What others should know:I found the H&N Field Target Trophy 8.64 grain with a 4.50mm head size so far shoots the best in this rifle. Chrony coming from PA in a few days and I will post / update with ballistic numbers soon. If you want a "real" air rifle that can even out shoot dad and keep the entire family outdoors and enjoying shooting sports look no further than the Air Venture Bronco from Pyramyd Air. I think Tom Gayloard and Gene Salvino got these guys in Mexico to keep their quality control tight as this air gun at this price is far and away better than the Chinese built versions I have seen. Mendoza is doing a bang up job down there making these and apparently are keeping up the good work. At first I wanted to rate this a 4 star overall but it honestly deserves the 5 all day long. Thank you for bringing this to the US market PA. Excellent rifle!
Things I liked:I purchased this as a starter for my 9-year old son to learn shooting fundamentals. He enjoys the rifle and hit a can at approximately 10 yards on his first shot. The rifle is a bit heavy for him (he uses something as a rest each shot), but he will grow into it. It is accurate, has a safety that engages when the rifle is cocked, and the two stage trigger works well for the price. My son can cock the rifle with considerable effort and wants me to do it after he does it a couple times. It is easy for an adult.
Things I would have changed:The open sights are not very functional. To make them nominally usable you must either shim up the front sight or remove the elevation blade of the rear sight. I put a plastic shim under the front sight and it is barely workable looking through the rear sight. This is a design flaw, in my opinion, and should be corrected on an otherwise fine rifle. The rifle had a significant amount of oil/gunk in it and after considerable cleaning and around 200 pellets it was still dieseling some. At 250 pellets it finally seems to have subsided.
What others should know:It is accurate with the open sights. My son can hit cans anywhere between 10-20 yards after a couple weeks and I can hit cans up to about 30 yards with some regularity. Given this limitation and the flaw in the design of the open sights, I do plan to purchase a scope for the rifle soon.
