Things I liked:First off it has to be the service at PA. I had a problem on my first Disco and PA promptly exchanged it. My replacement is perfection at it's finest. I can not believe the accuracy of this rifle. I am 68 years old and a little shaky but had no problems hitting a 1/2 inch bulls eye at 25 yards and 3 out of 4 in the same size group at 40 yards with a 3/12 scope and no mods. I am in air rifle heaven! As Tony the tiger would say :They are GRRRRRRREAT
Things I would have changed:It should come with a box of Wheaties. (breakfast of champions) You will be a champion shooter with this rifle.
What others should know:Get one while they are still being made and pack it away for that first grandson. He will be thrilled and you will be the worlds best Grandpa and keeping a great tradition alive.
Things I liked:The gun is light, handles like a dream, very accurate, easy to fill with a pump, finish is good, stock is good, the trigger though plastic is not that bad, loading with a scope is the only little problem you have, but if you've been shooting Benjamins and Sheridans all your life its no problem at all. Overall I am very happy with this rifle, don't know why I waited so long to get one.
Things I would have changed:A fancy walnut stock, or synthetic would be nice, but that would raise the price and its a great value as is. The only thing on this rifle I did'nt care for was the rear sight it was hard to shoot with.
What others should know:Like I said above, the rear sight is not that good, you will want to use a scope to take advantage of this guns accuracy, I can get 1" and better groups at 50 yards with JSB Exact Jumbo heavys 18.13gr, but it shot about everything I put though it fairly well. Its a great little gun and for the price it can't be beat.
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.
