Things I liked: For looks, it's a Stingray or Jag among barrel cockers! Very smooth cocking action. Much LESS recoil and bounce than a springer. Still shooting it in ... So, accuracy should improve.

Things I would have changed: An up-graded trigger option would be a nice addition. A modified trigger guard would be nice for guys with large hands as the existing one will irritate the middle finger.

What others should know: My rifle is a .177 and it seems to like pellets in the 10 grain + range. The trigger needs some work. It's obviously NOT the only rifle with this problem. Replacement trigger and how-to videos abound! Wish it was made in the USA ....

Things I liked: The look and feel of the rifle is solid. The silencer really does cut down shooting noise. Included scope is not bad.

Things I would have changed: Just like all the other reviews about this gun, the trigger pull is long and hard making aiming this rifle difficult to shoot consistently. The cheek rest comes loose after an hour or so of normal use no matter how tightly it is secured.

What others should know: Heavier pellets do better in this gun. I found that the JSB mach diablos were the most accurate for me. If your looking for a good shooter that is durable and easy to use the Legacy could work for you. If you are looking for accuracy and consistency you might want to look else ware.

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.

  • zack from USA asked:

    hello i am interestend in the .22 of this gun, do you reccomend it? how its the power compared to a hatsan 125 in .22? thanks zack

    • Tyler from USA:

      The power is not going to be as much as the 125. But that is one of the most powerful springers/gas rams on the market. Personally, I would spend a bit more and get the RWS 34. German made, great trigger and just a better gun overall.
