Things I liked:The ADVERTISED weapon
Things I would have changed: Actually make the rifle as quiet as it is advertised, and raise the velocity back up to what they were advertised to be on the 2012 rifle. further more actually give the selection of low, medium, and high, and 3 different bullet weights in the control software as advertised. Get crosman to actually answer the phone number they give you with the rifle
What others should know:It seems for 2013 benjamin has changed the rifle and in the process lowered it's performance. The sound level of the rifle is not as quiet as it is advertised. Further more it is not as fast as advertised You know what? Not market ready, is putting it nicely. buyer beware! try calling crosman and see what you get.
Things I liked:This rifle is a complete revolution in PCP technology. The ability to fire 3 - 4 shots at high power, then switch to low power for an additional 4 - 6 shots. The rotary magazine and bolt action allow for quick follow up shots so your game doesn't wander off wounded while you fumble around to reload. It is very accurate, powerful, and relatively quiet. All around a must have for serious air gun hunters. Crosman hit the nail on the head with this one.
Things I would have changed:I would bring back the ability to select grain weights in the settings, rather than the overly simplistic "Heavy/Light" selections. Heavy and light are subjective. Is 125 grains heavy or light? How about 140? Bring back the selections by weight.
What others should know:If you're looking for a gun to take medium game, or for depredation sessions, this is the gun for you. I'm shooting 1/2" groups at 60 yds with mine. This is my go-to air rifle for anything coon size and up. Buy this rifle, you will not be disappointed.
Things I liked:I have fired this rifle over 400 rounds with my Rogue. It has never failed or let me down.It is very accurate and quiet.Yes it is heavy BUT the balance is perfect.I own FWB, Theoben,Beeman, RWS and other top brand and top of the line rifles but this one is not in the same class. It can target shoot well but is foremost a hunting tool! This rifle would be last to go, if I could only keep one. WOW thats a frightening thought.
Things I would have changed:As a left hand shooter I must flip the rifle sharply on its side to read,operate lcd controls. its easy on a bench, harder when walking,because I must look at almost 90 degrees with my older eyes to see it clearly.Trust me that is a very small detail.
What others should know:I always say it as I see it. The rifle has proven to be very capable and fun.let the natural ballance of the rifle work for you, tuck in like target shooting,and you will be suprised how much thought really went into this rifle. All Benjiman rounds fired very well for me in my rifle.
Compatible with Benjamin Rogue ePCP Air Rifle
