Things I liked: The first thing I noticed was the weight. I had not expected it to be so substantial, but the weight is balanced well. As I have not really broken the barrel in, I can not speak much to the accuracy. However I have put 100 pellets through it and the shots a coming together nicely. Once you get the hang of cocking the gun, it gets fairly easy to do so. After cocking and loading, the barrel locks into place very well.
Things I would have changed: The first thing I would change would be the scope. It is a nice scope, but I favor a little more magnification than 4X fixed. Not bad for a starter scope. Red and green reticle colors are nice and bright on high power.
What others should know: Get one and have some fun.
Things I liked: 1. Accuracy, 2. scope (yes...you read that correctly), 3. short barrel break-in period, and 4. quietness. Contrary to the majority of my experiences, the scope that came with this rifle is pretty decent! At 23 yards (using the artillery hold) it consistently shoots clover-leafs and hole-in-holes. On a bad day it shoots dime-sized groups, but that's me, not the gun. On a really good day, my target is an old-fashioned galvanized roofing/shingle nail. I can literally drive one into a tree trunk at 23 yards! Talk about a "tack-driver"!
Things I would have changed: 1. Trigger pull. The trigger is what I'd estimate to be about somewhere between 5-5.5 lbs pull. It feels rough, with much travel. Maybe continued use, cleaning, and lubing will remedy some of this in time, but it's a challenge to control. Practice taking up on some air and pressing the trigger in ever-so- minute degrees of pressure! 2. Fit of the fore end to the slot that the barrel goes into when breaking it open. When breaking open the barrel, the metal touches the forearm as it passes down between the cut-out. 3. The barrel make an odd "nylon bushing-on-metal sound when breaking open the barrel. I thought that some oil on the pivot points in the break action would remedy or at least lessen this a bit, but no. As long as this gun shoots as well as it does, I'll leave well enough alone. The 2 year warranty is longer than many by a year.
What others should know: Clean the barrel, oil all pivot points, use loctite on the scope mount screws, practice breathing, trigger control, and practice the artillery hold.
Things I liked: its abnormally quiet!!!! only a 4 on over all rating due to the scope.
Things I would have changed: the trigger could be better, the scope was broke when i received it but was inadequate(4X) to begin with (so no real loss), and plastic washers on the barrel block prevent a good sight in.
What others should know: this is my 2nd stoeger X20S. this is a great little rifle for the money, however after a decent tune and grt 3 trigger this rifle truly shines, tack driver accuracy and even more quiet with a little boost to power.
Trying to decide on either the Stoeger X20S2 or the Benjamin Summit? Need a super stealth rifle since I live in a residential area. Thanks!
Had the X20S2 for a week now. After 200 pellets still smelling oil and seeing smoke in the barrel. How long will this go on? Seems it should be well past the point of burning off excess oils.
It seems Stoeger guns have more grease in them than other brands so it is what it is. Grease doesn't come out/burn off as easily as oil so you have the problem you're experiencing. You can take it apart and clean the excess grease out, which is what I do, or simply shoot it until it stops. I've always thought that extra grease is how they "claim" their guns don't need to be broken in, which is false, but it also creates your problem which many probably consider more annoying. The good news is at least it has grease because most guns these days have very little of a very thin oil which isn't enough. It's common for people to tell me it took 200 shots with a Stoeger, but the smoke/smell tapers slowly so when it "stops" is subjective. Lighter pellets burn more grease so if you have 'em you could see if they speed up the process. Taking the gun apart for a cleaning is really pretty easy. With just a #2 phillips and a small adj wrench I could have your gun apart in <1 min. If you've never done it before then maybe 10? Ideally I think everyone should take their gun apart for a little work, but up to you. If you want details on work they can bennie from (aka a tune) I can send it to you/anyone who asks; chevota at hotmail, just state the make/model/cal and what you want.
Can a sling be in stalled its for an elderly gent
You can add a front sling mount like a Benjamin Trail has, but I think most people would say it's too much work. chevota at hotmail if you want details. Otherwise I guess just screw in regular sling mounts in the stock wherever works. Obviously you can't put the fwd one in the center like a firearm, so just off to the side should be ok. You could also attach to the barrel but it's hollow plastic so be wary. The thing that concerns me about that Gamo Gun Buddy deal Stanley mentioned is if put on the X20S at the base of the suppressor then it may get caught on or wedged in the stock when cocking and bend or break the stock. The syn stock is pretty tough but fyi.
Being a break barrel option are kinda slim but Gamo makes the gun buddy sling # Gamo Gun Buddy Rifle Sling,..., which as i understand fits these guns very well .
