    This version of the Discovery does not include a pump, tank, yoke or fill adapter. To connect your Discovery to a scuba tank, you'll need a scuba tank adapter with hose and a female quick-disconnect with male threads. The tank must have a K valve.

    To exhaust air or CO2 from the rifle, you need to purchase the degasser tool.

    Get into precharged guns at an unheard-of price and also get the accuracy of an expensive European rifle!

    Benjamin has bridged the gap and taken the pain out of PCP guns. Not only is this as low a price as you'll ever find on a PCP rifle, but it's so easy to pump up that a wispy teenager could do it!

    The Discovery has raised the bar for PCP guns because it uses only 2000 psi of air. While the European companies race toward higher and higher air pressures, Benjamin is going the opposite direction and making it easier than ever to use a hand pump. If you want to use a scuba tank or carbon fiber tank, you can do that, too, and get the benefit of many more fills than you would from a gun that operates with 3000 psi. The Discovery gives you a choice! The air reservoir is 135cc. The air tank has a male Foster fitting.

    The gun comes with a hardwood stock, Williams fiber optic front and rear sights, and a built-in air pressure gauge.

    When you open your box, you'll see easy-to-follow and easy-to-understand instructions that'll lead you step-by-step. If you're an experienced PCP user, you'll soon see that the Discovery is the easiest PCP you've ever used. If you're new to PCPs, you'll become a pro in just a few short steps.

    If you want to switch to CO2, that's easy to do, but you'll need a degasser tool to quickly exhaust all the air before filling with CO2. Attach the optional CO2 adapter, connect it to a standard paintball CO2 tank and fill 'er up! Now, commence to shootin'!

    With high-pressure air, you'll get up to 25 powerful shots before you need to pump up again. On CO2, you'll get a lot more shots per fill.

    Things I liked:Gun is light, trigger is decent for amount paid. Lots of power. Like that only needs 2000 psi to operate so gun is easy to fill by hand pump. Very good accuracy. Like that its made in USA!
    Things I would have changed:Not much but maybe quiet it down some.
    What others should know:Gun is kind of load, not back yard friendly but TKO makes silencer that seems to do good job of quieting it down. In .22 cal gun shoots AIr Arms 16 grain pellets in 925 fps range producing 25 fpe. Recommend this gun for people on budget who want pcp air gun.

    Things I liked:Very accurate. Light weight (especially compared to the Marauder). Easy to pump up to 2000 psi (again compared to the Marauder's 3000 psi). I enjoy shooting both my Marauder .25cal and this Discovery .22cal, I find they are both excellent hunting rifles. I plan to use the Discovery for pest control at 50 yds. and under, and the Marauder for farther ranges though I think the Discovery is more than capable of longer range accuracy.
    Things I would have changed:I would change the way the stock mounts to the pressure tube. Though it has a beefy screw on the outside, that only attaches to a weak 8-32 Lug. I found mine to be nearly stripped and unable to be tightened. Rather than return the rifle and get who knows what back I chose to machine a new Lug out of better quality materials and have had no trouble since. This was the only flaw I found to be a problem. I would also like regular iron sights as fiber optic sights are not accurate for me, but that's just me. While the trigger is not match grade it is a comfortable pull (and remember the price it is selling for). Cocking the gun is harder than the Marauder but a little lube helps with that.
    What others should know:When I bought my Discovery .22cal I also bought several sample packs of pellets to test accuracy and used a chronograph for performance testing. I found My gun favors the Crosman Premier hollow points 14.3 gr (3/4" groups at 35 yds.) I also found that my rifle has fewer usable shot depending on range ( 10 at 60 yds. / 15 at under 35 yds.) This does not sound like a good count however, Those ten shots are sending 14.3 grains at an average of 891 fps or 25+ foot-pounds of energy out of the box. Others results may vary but for a single shot rifle this light, 10 high powered shots that can hit a one inch target at over 60 yds. without changing my point of aim (between shots) works for me. This is with a BSA 4X32 AO scope that was packaged with a spring piston rifle. Final thoughts-After using the Marauder and now the Discovery I think they are both great rifles. If on a tight budget the Discovery will perform very well. If you have a bigger budget the Marauder is just more refined.

    Things I liked: Almost everything about this air rifle. The bluing and wood stock excellent. It has a lot of features for the money. Fiber optic sights are great.
    Things I would have changed:I would like a metal trigger and trigger guard...otherwise great.
    What others should know:Even if you have scuba tank fill station invest in the hand pump. The hand pump makes a great only more versatile. It takes some effort to hand pump this gun but not really bad. It moderately loud but not bad for a .22.
