Im having significant accuracy issues with my Benjamin Armada .177. Right now Im getting 1.5 inch groups at 15 yards with about 1 out of 5 shots going way outside of that. I have a nice scope on it. Any help is greatly appreciated.
What pellets are you using? Have you tried various types and brands of pellets? Have you cleaned the barrel?
Armada 177 feeding multiple pellets. We just got this gun yesterday and set it up today. The first magazine feed fine but when I put in the second it stared to feed multiple pellets. After looking at the mechanism I could not figure out what I was doing wrong. There is one post here on this but not much for solutions. Any help?
Sounds like an issue with the mag. That said, it cannot double feed unless you remove the bolt from the magazine. So if you load a pellet, don't shoot it (or didn't pull the bolt back far enough to cock the gun) and then pull the bolt back the magazine will cycle to the next pellet. Sounds more like a bit of user error to me
I was hoping I can Convert this to .30 Cal Does anyone know where I may buy the Parts needed Thank You in Advance
Like he say a Barrel and also You can get a Bolt sleeve.
There are a fair number of parts you'd need to make. Obviously the barrel is the first piece, then you'd need a bolt to fit it. Probably need to mod the internals as well to get reasonable power out of the larger caliber as well.
Can anyone tell me how loud this rifle is in dB? I'm curious as to how it compares to other PCPs and .22s.
Depends on the caliber, but in the 85-90 dB range
Trouble airing my Armada
Be more specific. What's going on?
Is it normal for the Benjamin Armada to make a ping sound when shooting?
what kind of mil dot reticle is the scope that comes with it?
This particular rifle doesn't come with a scope.
Brand new armada having feeding issues. First of all I pull the bolt back till I hear the click mag doesn't go in. Have to pull back bolt and hold it back while i put mag in. Tried to load a round and it jams have to force bolt forward. Double feeds. What am i doing wrong???
Not that I endorse it but There are mods You can look up to fix that with the Cycle Issue. I had the same problem till I Modded the mag with the Spring. I did mine a little different what they suggested as for me it worked well. No more jams.and cycles each round perfect
I am trying the jsb kings that everyone loves using in these rifles. I may have popped out the o ring at the breech. Going to replace that and try again.
That is normal. You pull the bolt back on the rifle and then have to hold the bolt back that extra bit before inserting. What pellets are you using? Is it tough to load a round with multiple kinds of pellets? If you haven't tried more than one pellet, I'd recommend doing so.
So just recwntly my gun started to like swirl when i shoot it. Like i can see the pellet going to cirlces as it goes thro the air.... Whats going on?
Pellet instability can come from a number of places. If it has been an accurate pellet for your rifle in the past, the first thing I would do is clean the barrel. If that doesn't help, check your velocity. It's possible that you could be pushing it too fast.
Benjamin Armada .177 bolt change. On my rifle 2 of the cap head bolts are blocked so can't be removed, which means I cant change the bolt position or service it. Has anyone else got this problem in the U.K.?
On These gen 2 Rifles removing the Bolt is different then in most videos You see. You can reverse the Bolt by looking under the breech for screws that will let You remove or or change the direction. but in order to do that You have to have the Trigger housing removed just be careful You do not break the Sear like I did lol
Darren, you may want to reach out to Crosman/Benjamin directly. Maybe it's there way of putting an anti-tamper on the rifle?
Today I received my Benjamin armada 25 cal. Combo, I installed the pump and I filled up with almost 3000 psi. After that I Tried to pull the bolt to lets the pallets magazine in, and the bolt its going only half way backward. I don't know what I have to do.
Besides Looking up the Correct way to load the Mag so that the Pellet skirt lines up with the Bolt as the instructions are not clear.There are several answer online You can find answers. As far as Jams or Mag not Cycling properly Not that I endorse it but There are mods You can look up to fix that with the Cycle Issue. I had the same problem till I Modded the mag with the Spring. I did mine a little different what they suggested as for me it worked well. No more jams.and cycles each round perfect
P.A. is very good with this stuff on their customer service. Call em. If you wanna look at it will void any warranty.
So I have a Benjamin Armada in the 25 caliber. I have shot about seven hundred rounds with it and it worked amazingly with Incredible accuracy even out to a hundred yards. And then all the sudden it seem to lose power so I refill the tank 3000 psi and still little power I tested it it was a corner graphs and I'm only getting between 400 - 420 feet per second. Anyone have any ideas as to why it would I have such a power loss even with a full tank.
i would suspect that the valve assy is sticking or the transfer port is obstructed. if you are good with air rifles then i would degas and pull valve apart and look at transfer port. any issues let me know with a post on here and ill help as much as i can as i have 1 and do all my own work
Here is a question I have not seen answered. How much power is lost with the suppression system? I know the Suppression system increases accuracy a bit but at what velocity cost?
YOU ARE NOT GOING TO SEE A SIGNIFICANT DROP IN FPS AT LEAST NOT ENOUGH TO MAKE A DIFF FOR DISTANCE OR ACCURACY. AND IT WILL VARY DEPENDING ON THE GRAIN SHOT YOU USE
Can you hog hunt with the 25. caliber.
Yes you can BUT! There is a series of things needed to do to accomplish to create the FPE necessary to drop a hog. You need 60++FPE and precision shots to drop a hog.Primarily head shots, or center mass shots with the tuning and modifications At the factory stock settings it is around 36-45 fpe with out the manufacturers tune, with the manufacturers tune around 45++'ish(the tune is referenced in the owners manual). You can get between 60-80+ fpe with modifications (but the mods can possibly violate your warranty) and heavier rounds. At 60-80 fpe is sufficient enough to hunt medium hogs with a competent shooter. There is a lot of videos that refer to that question. They will answer your question. Most people use the Armada/Marauder for hunting small-medium small game.
Does anyone know my armada. 25 is twice as loud as my marauder. 25? I'm under the impression that the guts are the same, just a different chassis.
everything is the same just diff body moderators are the same however there are a few mods found online that will quiet the gun up even more.. i have done mods with mine (spring, moderator mods) is super quiet power and accuracy amazing
I have the .25 version. To remove the mag, is it normal to have to pull the bolt back beyond its resting open position?
From crosman ".yes with the Armada guns you do have to pull the bolt back past the resting position to use the clip..."
Is the barrel threaded for silencers
there are mods for the internal moderator to quiet this up even more maybe 50% more. you can find these online
No already comes with a suppressed system.
how many jules have? at 22 calibre
depends on the weight of the pellet used and the tuning of the gun, ( 1 Joule = 0.737562 Fpe), look up what people are getting with different pellets and tuning, go to GTA for best answers to your Question, since it is basically the same as a Marauder, the spec should be the same.
Why doesn't this version come in .177 while the others do?
look again, it does come in .177
How wide is the picatinny rail?
most air guns are 11mm dove tail, Picatinny rails are Mil spec, same as an AR platform.
widest point is .835 in (+/- .005), mounting groove slot .617 in ( +/- .010), Picatinny and Weaver Rails are the same widths just different slot dimentions
Is the butt stock mil spec or commercial?
Actually, just read the owners manual, it IS mil spec, NOT commercial.......
I don't see where it says that...... So I ordered both stocks for my regular armada, lol. Went with OD green!
commercial. Here is Magpul version: Benjamin Armada Magpul PCP Air...
What height rings to mount a scope with a 44mm objective?
I had to rotate the scope caps 90 degrees and they work. Just that the cover turns sideways rather than upwards.
Google (scope mount ring height chart) for best fit, as close to the barrel as possible with out touching is the best set up.
My 50mm utg scope fits with medium rings perfectly. The bell clears the rail by about 1/8 inch. So "perfect" but i can't put on the scope caps.
High rings would be best
Other than the scope and bipod what is the difference between this rifle and the Magpul edition?
You can still Swap out the Stock an Grip with AR15 ones even if You have the Non Magpul version of this Rifle
The butt stock and grip are not Magpul.
Made In China, assembled in America like the Maurader?
Made in America with globally sourced parts is the wording Crosman uses.
Can you put iron sights on the Armada? If yes, which model could work best with this rifle? Thanks!
Yes Magpul MOE MBUS's will work on the gun but you have to tinker with the distances between the front and rear sight (I found I moved the front sight back to around 17'is inches and that had a level and accurate line of sight. They are not meant for this low of a velocity so therefore you have to tinker with the distances. The front sight is lower in profile from the rear so the farther back you move it the higher your point of aim will be). There is a lot of real estate between the front and rear ends of the top rail it is very long and the sights are best suited to be around (give or take) 17' from each other.
any AR style flip up or battle sight will work as long as they are a matched set, don't mix different brands, always use the same brand and matched sets. also make sure you get a sight height adjuster tool too.
I have found that AR 45deg offset sights also work well. Keep in mind that if you mount buis with a main optic you might consider mounting the buis forward 45 offset, or use a quick release scope mount. There isn't much rail on the action to accommodate for traditional scope mounts and a rear buis. I was very pleased to find out that the action pic rail slots line up perfectly to the forend top rail slots over that gap of missing rail. So using a forward mounted onepiece will work. Hope that helps
Who manufactures the .25 barrel for this rifle? Green Mountain like the Marauder?
answer from Crosman, "We are not set up to produce .25 caliber barrels, so yes the .25 caliber Armada rifle will feature a green mountain barrel."
