Things I liked:Absolute knock-out in the looks department! The brazed or soldered-on Weaver/Picatinny scope rail will never loosen up, and since it has cross-slots, your scope will never creep. No messing around with scope stops needed! Lots of power, and the integral sound moderator seems to make a difference. The near-vertical pistol grip is nice, you shoot with a more natural angle to your wrist, less stress which is appreciated Benjamin!
Things I would have changed:Has a mile-long trigger pull! OK, its really only about 3/8-1/2" long, but come on Benjamin, really? Next problem, the steel pin that presses through the cocking link and the ears at the bottom of the barrel breech began to "walk" its way out. I discovered this when I noticed black plastic shavings on the carpet in front of me. The pin was digging a divot into the stock! I disassembled the pin and link, degreased everything, then I put a drop of superglue on each end of the pin. After that cured, I mixed up some epoxy glue and put a dab on each end, then let the rifle sit overnight. Seems to be holding. Next problem, the adjustable cheekpiece won't stay put. There really needs to be some serrations molded into the stock and the mating surface of the cheekpice. Then it would never move. Larger thumbwheels would be appreciated too. The recoil pad is too firm, and this is a problem because this rifle has some serious recoil! But, I realize you cant have serious power without a significant opposite reaction, so I will live with it. A suggestion for Benjamin: before assembling the rifle, apply some moly paste to the pin on the cocking arm that slides in the long slot in the anti-beartrap link, to the link itself, and to the track that the plastic roller rides on in the stock. Doing so on my rifle eliminated most of the scraping/grinding/rattling noises that made my rifle sound cheap, as received. Now it has a quieter, more "solid" sound and feel to it when cocked.
What others should know:Clean the barrel out before you shoot for the first time. The first wet patch came out black! The elevation and windage adjustments on the scope seemed to have some interaction between them, as an adjustment in elevation seemed to affect the windage, and vice-versa. Also, the point-of-impact would wander for several shots after each adjustment, then settle down. Keep in mind, I only have 300 or so shots through the rifle/scope combo at this time, and the accuracy has steadily improved, as expected. So the above mentioned concerns are likely normal break-in issues. All-in-all, this rifle is a keeper. Yes, it has a few minor issues, but no deal breakers. I am pleased with this handsome, powerful rifle.
Things I liked:This rifle looks great and has a very good feel. It seems to have plenty of power and is very quiet after break in period.
Things I would have changed:Not a big fan of the adjustable comb. It doesn't stay adjusted.
What others should know:Purchased this rifle in .22 for general hunting and plinking. Love the look and feel. Gun seams to had plenty of power. My only real complaint about the gun is the accuracy. I've attempted several different pellets and several different holds including the artillery hold. I have also given the rifle plenty of break in time. The accuracy always seems to change after about 20 shots. Sometimes worse sometimes better. I suspect it is the piston loosening up and the fps changing. Seems to be getting better over time. I've had the most consistent results with Polymag pellets but nowhere near the manufacturer claims. Polymags average about 1.5 inch groups at 20 yards with more center shots than any other pellet. The scope seams good but is not very responsive to adjustments. Once you get this thing sighted in with one type of pellet don't touch it again.
Things I liked:HAS PLENTY OF POWER A NICE FEEL AND LOOK. THIS IS MY FIRST AIR RIFLE AND AT A DECENT PRICE
Things I would have changed:There's a very long trigger pull and I've had to shim the scope
What others should know:It takes a good bit of effort to cock so when my wife shoots it I have to load it for her. It's also fairly heavy. I'm also having some accuracy problems with it that pyramidair has been helping me with. Crosman says it's suppose to shoot half inch groups at 20 yards but as of now I'm lucky to get 3 inch groups with an occasional flyer.
