Things I liked:this is a well balanced package after owning a few springers im really liking the discovery my neighbor after shooting mine bought one as well i know this is supposed to be an entry level pcp rifle i put a 4-16 power centerpoint scope on it that works good but am looking into a scope that dont have as many bells & whistles possibly a bug buster compact scope i think my disco has about the same handling charactaristics as a 10/22 ruger my favorite ammo so far is meisterklugen clsely followed by crossman premiers & the rws super h point it doesnt like the hobbys or the stoeger 17.13 gr. stoegers which i hear are made by h&n in germany all in all this is not a fussy air rifle & ive taken many groundsquirrels & crows as well as pigeons most of my shooting is done as 30-50 yards i have a 30 yard shooting range in my back yard & friends come over & shoot with me as well everyone likes the discovery including one m-rod owner ive gotta say the m-rod is quieter which i like
Things I would have changed:i must of got lucky with my trigger because it is smooth with no creep however i dont like its shape i think im gonna try one of those trigger boots double-action pistol shooters use i think its alliance hobby that has a metal trigger kit that includes an extra barrell band about $65.00
What others should know:all in all im pretty happy with my discovery i wish they offered it in .25 cal
Things I liked:1" Shot groups @ 50 Yards. Build Quality vs Price is Hands Down the BEST out there. Stock is nice with a very elegant finish. The bluing of the metal is top quality and the Plastics ironically don't feel cheap.
Things I would have changed:Stock sights (Not really a con since I scope it day 1). Add a second barrel band for the price (Free floating barrels are good with shorter barrels or at least a shroud, this isn't one of them and the single barrel band isn't enough to stop the barrel from flexing if it hits something). Make the breach a little bigger cuz is not easy to load pellets with big fingers (This is specific to me though yours might be fine).
What others should know:The stocks sights are pretty basic and hard to adjust. If you want to buy this rifle to use open sights don't even bother!! This rifle was BORN to be scoped it literally begs for it once you see the open sights. The Trigger is completely predictable and not squishy at all as some say, The pull is heavy only if you have used lighter triggers before on some High-End Rifles, If you come from break barrels this trigger will feel lightweight in comparison. The Hand Pump is pretty much the heaviest thing on the package, the build quality is amazing. I require around 43 pumps to bring it up from 1000PSI to 2000ish PSI this gave me around 18-20 powerful shots (.22 Cal version) the PSI Gauge on the Pump matches perfectly the one on the gun. If you want to start on the PCP world or just want an incredibly accurate 50yrd Rifle this is for you!! 399 bucks is a Steal for Gun and Pump!
Things I liked:POWER! This gun is very powerful out of the box. It's my first PCP, and I'm sold! NO recoil or special holds to account for. I get 20 to 25 consistent POI shots at moderate range, and another 5 or so for short range work. The quality of the build is a strong 9 of 10, its very solid and refined looking, with only a couple sub par areas. The pump that comes with the gun is solid and pumps to 2000 psi with ease, although it is a bit labor intensive at the higher end of the fill. The stock is a nice solid hardwood, and overall it is an awesome hunting rifle for the money. Mine seems to like JSB Exact 15.89 grain pellets. I can't say enough for its power, if you have used springers and multi pump pneumatics, especially .177 like me all your life, this thing is comparing a sligshot to a cannon! NO comparison, and I have a 1200 fps .177 springer. This .22 is a squirrels worst nightmare! I had said my next gun would be a Marauder .25, after shooting this .22, a .25 will be absolutely beastly!
Things I would have changed:The trigger is by far the worst point of the gun, plastic blade with way too much creep. A brass trigger blade with adjustment screws and a good polish job should be top priority. Also, the bolt likes to lock and unlock when the gun is loaded, it hasn't opened so far, but it will go up and down if you are carrying it on a sling. Other than that, it is LOUD!! My .22 rimfire is barely louder, and I have had some pest birds "jump the shot" at longer range, presumedly they hear the report before the pellet arrives. So keep this in mind as well as your neighbors! And the placement of the barrel band/ lack of a second barrel band (see anything else to know).
What others should know: I gave it a 4 star for accuracy due to two things, one a big deal and one an easy fix. Good news first, the barrel band. In its factory location, it allows the muzzle to flex a good amount with little persuasion. No big deal, I simply moved the band to about a half inch behind the front sight. Presto, problem solved, just make sure it doesn't clamp the barrel off to either side. Now the bad news, the muzzle. At 20 yards, I can shoot .25 inch jagged holes. Go to 50 and that opens to 1.75 to 2 inches. An internet search yielded some light on this issue. The last 1/2 inch or so of the rifling at the muzzle is "off" for lack of a better term. The rifling lands in that half inch are about half as wide as the remainder of their length. I found numerous instances of this online. My personal decision is to wait and get a BNM barrel when I get the BNM breech and shroud kit. It does OK in the meantime, just watch out for this issue.
