Things I liked:Surpassed my wildest dreams in accuracy after all the bad reviews I read. Easily does 1" 5 shot groups and the occasional dime size group with Crosman premier HP 14.3s @ 30 yards with factory trigger. I'm sure a better trigger would make this rifle a consistent dime sizer. Hefty and sturdy feels like my Remington 700 sendero. Positive safety though not automatic. Easy to cock as my ruger air hawk. Don't let the magnum moniker scare you. I'm 6ft 170lbs and I consistently can cock and shoot 50-75+ pellets a sitting. Much quieter and softer shooting than my ruger air hawk. No harsh vibes and twang in stock that stings cheek. Love the nitro piston. Can shoot this in the backyard and neighbors don't notice. Stock screws and shroud have not loosened as of yet.
Things I would have changed:Terrible trigger has no discernible break is creepy and stacks. Needs work out of the box. More robust scope needed. Reticle broke loose and canted 30 degrees in tube just under 100 shots. Still shoots accurately but I hear rattling in scope now. Time to send it to centerpoint. Otherwise beautiful stock has horrible flat polyurethane finish. Kinda wish it had backup iron sights.
What others should know:Barrel was filthy from factory. Shroud cap removal and cleaning is a must. Both had caked black grease in them. Spent atleast an hour cleaning it all out. Difficult rifle to shoot well. MUST use artillery hold. Terrified this gun is gonna eat another scope. Really temped to tear into this thing and replace the piston seal as I hear most of them are damaged from the factory and this bad seal reduces scope life due to rifle recoiling more violently. Still smokes and diesels occasionally and I'm between 200-300 pellets in now. Do not over torque your shroud! Finger tight plus quarter turn! Shroud uses 1/4" allen scope rings are metric. If your not willing to tinker pass this one by. If you're willing to show this thing some TLC you'll never look back.
Things I liked:Total feel and look of the gun. The power is outstanding as when using 19-21 grain pellets the velocity chrony'd falls within as advertised for lead pellets. The fpe is outstanding out to 70 yards with the 17 different pellets I tested and no doubt could take varmits with little effort. I have other 25 caliber springers so I purchased this gun for its nitro piston as I hunt in the field for long hours. As of this point I have only put through about 250 pellets so the gun is still breaking in. At this point the groups at 25 yards with nearly all pellets have been between 1-1 1/2 inch. However I have noticed the gun likes 3 pellets better than the rest. Another gun will show different results. This was the first rifle I purchased that the company actually took the time to put Loctite on the barrel screws. The scope is a decent scope given that few that come in a package have tactical turrets for quick moa adjustment like this one.
Things I would have changed:To say the trigger is sub-par is to say the least. I tested my trigger when I got it and is showed 6.2 pounds not the 3.5 pounds as advertised. After adjusting the trigger is did reduce the pull weight to 6 pounds....really!!!!! This is a great gun, get with it Benjamin and adjust the triggers to the correct weight before they leave the factory.
What others should know:I am making these comments given that this rifle is still new. WIth all that being said, I really like this rifle. However, once should be prepared to buy better scope rings, shim the scope, or perhaps a better scope. The MOA adjustments at 25 yards almost run out the evelation turret which might cause reticle drift in some scopes. The tactical turrets though great are somewhat difficult to reset to zero. If you enjoy armoring like I do this will be a fun gun to work on and bring up to its potential.
Things I liked:Good power and nice scope combo.
Things I would have changed:Trigger pull is bad and pulls you off target. Only shot crossman premiers to get good groups. JSB don't group well with this gun.
What others should know:My piston stuck after cocking it for the 20th shot. It went off randomly later that day so still waiting on pyramid air support to get back with me on a replacement gun. It's been about 2 weeks and still waiting for a response.
