Things I liked:This is my first pcp air gun so I do not have a depth of knowledge, but I can tell you I got a dandy. I paired the Discovery with a Leapers 3x9x40 AO scope. Perfect fit. I am short 5'8" the gun is a perfect fit for youth and small build shooters. The gun is light weight and the pump is really not that hard to use and I'm 63 years old. This is a hard hitting accurate air gun. It's a blast to shoot!
Things I would have changed:The pressure gauge on the Discovery needs upgrading. Pretty cheap and way off from the pump pressure gauge reading, but for $10.00 it can be easily replaced.
What others should know:I know and have read of Discovery problems and I was reluctant to take the risk because even at a so called low end pcp, that is still a lot of money for some of us. I am so glad I did. I love this gun, My springers will probably collect more dust now. This is a great air gun. Take the risk if you are ready to enter the air gun world. We all know Pyramyd Air will stand by any defects that might come with yours. I was blessed to have a great shooter right out of the box. Even the trigger is fine for now and I shoot Gene's upgrade in all my other rifles.
Things I liked:Excellent accuracy, light weight, easy to operate, easy to pump up. No more break barrel springer artillery holds, no light stock holds, no holding stock in exact same position, no special trigger pull, no more broken scopes, no more recoil shock. This gun has it all over springers for accuracy. The pump works great too and is not hard to pump at all. Believe you me this is a one shot one kill pest buster.
Things I would have changed:Additional barrel band and maybe a lighter hammer spring.
What others should know:Shooting this gun as compared to a springer is like night and day with repeatable, I say repeatable 1 hole groups at 25yds., 1/2" groups at 50yds., and 1" groups at 70yds. with 15.89 JSB's. Pretty hard to do that repeatedly with a springer. This gun will only get about 12 good shots between 1000 and 2000 psi before having to pump back up(about 45 easy pumps). But if you lighten the hammer spring to reduce the velocity slightly you can get around 20 good shots(.22 cal.), get better groups and still hit hard. For the money this is a good deal to get into a PCP rifle.
Things I liked:Out of the box accuracy is great ONCE YOU FIND THE RIGHT PELLET. I have found that this gun DOES NOT like the Crosman Premier domed or hollow points, but LOVES the JSB 15.9g domed.
Things I would have changed:The Benjamin Marauder and the Marauder pistol both have magazines...I really wish that they would come out with a magazine that fit the Discovery too!! The only other thing I can think of is possibly being able to buy an aftermarket synthetic thumbhole stock but that's really nit picking
What others should know:I have used this gun with both CO2 and HPA and I personally like the CO2 much better. I get way more shots per fill and its not as loud compared to HPA. Pyramyd air has been nothing but helpful with all of my purchases and they are a wealth of knowledge when it comes to advice!
