Things I liked:Quiet, hard shooting with smooth cocking action. The adjustable trigger is a nice feature allowing for matching my shooting style. I also like the synthetic stock; no worries about marring & scratching up a wood stock.
Things I would have changed:The barrel is encased in some molded material and the casting seams stand out pretty sharp (1/8 inch), an obvious unescapble indication of low manufacturing standards. The adjustable cheek riser is worthless as you reset any adjusted setting when you use the stock as leverage to cock the gun.
What others should know:250 shot break-in period to firm up accuracy (per banjamin literature) is no joke. First few dozen shots I couldn't stay on a paper plat at 30 ft using a bench rest...and it was hard to keep shooting it based on faith it would improve so much. It did; 700 pellets later it's pretty decent though I still get wildly erratic shots now and then that are not explainable.
Things I liked:The weaver scope mount. I think all gas and spring piston gut should have the weaver mount rail. While furnished scopes are not very well rated, I have had no problems with the dozen or so guns that I have. But I think this gun ( and all of them) should be sold without a scope and let the buyer decide. I am very well satisfied with this gun but I do intent to upgrade the scope. Im 81 and cant use the open sights, so a scope is necessary
Things I would have changed:I favor wood. I would like to see a choice of wood or plastic stock, with a rubber recoil pad, just for looks.
What others should know:I havnt shot this gun much, maybe 500 times. The cocking action seems smooth, the cocking force is OK. With my rifle, it requires a pellet (22) seater. I cannot get a pellet to seat below flush with my fingers or thumb (Crossman hollow points).I made a seater out of a tooth brush handle and it seats constantly at the same depth. The gun is very accurate at 10 and 20 yards, but is loud with a metal pellet trap. Gets the neighbors attention
Things I liked:a lot of power and the scope is great. someone said that the scope adjustments would change up and down if they adjusted left and right. they didn't have the scope level.
Things I would have changed:the recoil pad was pretty stiff and my shoulder got sore after a bit of shooting
What others should know:the screw that connects the barrel to the rest of the gun isn't actually screwed in. It's and easy fix just by taking out three screws then screwing in the main screw. it wasn't very accurate before but now it is pretty good.
