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.
Things I liked:Don't know what to say good that has not been said already. Accurate, easy to pump, lite weight, just a nice rifle. Oh put a TKO brake on it.
Things I would have changed:Make it in .20.
What others should know:Best buy in air guns.
