  • Rick of from Canada asked:

    How do I set the scope for barrel droop ?

    • Tyler from USA:

      You can do two things. 1) you can shim the scope by placing a piece of a business card or thin plastic under the scope tube on the rear ring. 2) you can purchase adjustable rings from Sportsmatch that can be adjusted to compensate without shimming.

  • Tim from USA asked:

    In the picture the scope looks to be a AO scope but does not say that in description. Is it?

    • Tyler from USA:

      Yes, this scope does have an adjustable objective

  • tom from Canada asked:

    I just got my Browning Leverage in .22. The trigger felt like something was rubbing against metal so I took a look. The trigger spring is sitting under a little heal under the trigger itself( when the barrel it upside down.) and the tip of the L-bend in the spring is pressing on the wall of the trigger housing. It scratches along this wall during the entire path of the trigger pull. Is this normal or has my spring shifted from its proper location? I can't believe this is what was intended from the factory.

    • tom from Canada:

      Update : I took the trigger apart and polished a very rough trigger and sear. It is much better now. Still about 6 pounds but the rifle is shooting three shot dimes at 25 yards after only 50 pellets. It can only get better as it breaks in. Im much happier now.

  • Garrett from USA asked:

    Which rifle would be better GAMO Whisper CFR Or the GAMO ACCU Or this rifle By the way i am looking for a very accurate under lever air rifle

    • Paul from USA:

      I've got to agree with tom from Canada if you want a "very" accuracy rifle but it will cost you.

    • tom from Canada:

      If you want accuracy go with the Air Arms TX200 or Weirauch Hw 77 or Hw 97 . But you are looking at more money.

  • bob from Canada asked:

    will a bipod fit on this air rifle?

  • Thomas from USA asked:


    • wyatt from USA asked:

      What size is this scope, is it 1" or 30mm?

      • Stanley from USA:

        1 inch.

    • George from USA asked:

      I want to remove the existing mount and I am replacing it with an adjustable mount. I removed the screws on the mount but the mount won't slide off more than a 1/2 inch...How do I get this off?

      • Paul from USA:

        What mount are you referring to ?

    • george from USA asked:

      Is this the same gun as the XISICO Model XS46U?

      • Matthew from USA:

        Same gun..

      • D. Braxton from USA:

        It's darn close. I'm going to as Mike at Flying Dragon when I talk to him Monday.

    • Henry from USA asked:

      Is it possible to crown the barrel?

      • Paul from USA:


    • Fred from USA asked:

      What 0.177 cal pellets work well in the Leverage? So far I have found that JSB Exacts and Air Arms 8.34 and 10.34 gr shoot well (1/2" c-t-c groups at 30 yards). Lighter pellets scatter, and Crosman 10.5 gr produce large groups. Has anyone tried RWS 8.3 gr Superdome or Winchester 9.8 gr dome pellets?

      • Robert from USA asked:

        Is this rifle hold sensitive like some springers?

        • Fred from USA:

          Not especially. I find that the artillery hold produces the tightest patterns with my Browning leverage, but a standard hold also seemed to work well for me, providing that I hold the gun lightly with my fingers and lightly to my shoulder.

      • Michael from USA asked:

        With the vast variety of pellet weights available for .22 guns, I was wondering if anyone had any recommendations for a brand and weight pellet that would allows this gun to perform consistently at it's posted 800 fps. I have found JSB and RWS domed work well in my .177 guns. I generally shoot target but will hunt if survival dictates.

      • Fred from USA asked:

        I'm interested in doing field target shooting (0ut to 50 yards), but I am on a limited budget. Is this rifle suitable for field target shooting?

        • Nico from USA:

          I have a browning leverage and it is reasonably accurate. For field target the standard for ACCEPTABLE accuracy is 1 1/2" at 55 yards (the size of the largest killzone). I can print that with mine, most of the time slightly better. You could definitely shoot field target with this rifle as long as you have 1) a good optic and 2) lots of practice.

        • Mark from USA:

          I'm doing just fine from 10 to 50 yards with the inexpensive Crossman pointed hunting pellets you can buy in the 1250 count milk cartons. I'm sure there are pellets that would provide tighter grouping and less flyers, but I'll stick to the inexpensive ones as my son and I can go through 500 a week when the weather permits. The included scope is fine for out to at least 50 yards, if not more.

      • swamprocker57 from USA asked:

        Is it tougher to load than a Break Barrel due to having to load it in the breach with the scope hanging past?

        • Mark from USA:

          My scope is set with about 2 1/2 inches of eye relief and there is plenty of room to load a pellet. I point the barrel down when the cocking lever is secured and chamber open and just push a pellet in, as easy as any of my break-barrel action rifles. Having the barrel pointing up (as in some videos) and resting a pellet on my thumb to push it up into the chamber didn't work for me. Couldn't balance the pellet on my finger or thumb that way.

        • Tyler from USA:

          With the stock scope it does not hand over the breech, but if your scopes hangs over, that would certainly make loading a bit harder.

      • weco from USA asked:

        Can I get this browing air rifle in left hand

        • John from USA:

          No, but this rifle is ambidextrous except for the monte carlo stock.

        • alex from Canada:

          This gun is a re-branded rifle, the original is Xisco 46u chinese made rifle, but the quality is awesome and the price even better.

      • Michael from USA asked:

        Will it ever come out with a gas piston?

        • alex from Canada:

          You can do it yourself, you only need a Crosman Phantom or Optimus size nitro piston or gas spring.

      • Ernest from USA asked:


        • Casey from USA:

          Lousy trigger out of the box but easy to fix. I filed mine smooth and it now breaks at 3.5 pounds.

          Trigger Pull: 5.2 lb
