Things I liked: Outstanding! I have a similar model made by Umarex which is great but this one is definitely a cut above. The sale price made it a simple decision and I wasn't disappointed.

Things I would have changed: Nada!

Things I liked: Over great gun is consistently accurate. Scope is surprisingly good for a scope gun combo.

Things I would have changed: The trigger is garbage. It feels like pulling a rock across another rock. This was fixed by swapping the coil spring from an f250 they put in there with a lighter one from the hardware store. Easy fix but no reason for the factory to have done this. My old RWS was not at all like this.

What others should know: Good gun overall. Great gun once the trigger is fixed.

    Things I liked: I actually received Benjamin Vaporizer SBD Air Rifle, NP Elite in .22 caliber about 3 weeks ago. I normally purchase 99% of my Airguns from PA. But I got a good early deal on this. I really like the CBT once I changed to a lighter trigger spring. It has a much defined two stage. I polished the trigger components and with the lighter spring it breaks at 2.5 lbs. The standard trigger really is not that bad at 5 lbs. The stock is really nice and the cocking effort is around 30 lbs., which is pretty easy.

    Things I would have changed: The rifle does have a heavy recoil and could be damaging to most scopes. The stock scope is not bad, it is a 30-30 but I would prefer their mil-dot.

    What others should know: I believe the rifle I received was defective in that the accuracy was subpar. I went through approximately 15 different pellets, weight, shapes, type etc. The best pellets were the 14.0 grain Meisterkuglen which grouped a little over 1" at 20 yards. It chrono'd at an average of 806 FPS (20 FPE), low of 797 FPS, a high of 823 FPS and StdDev 7.12. Again the trigger, once adjusted, is really nice. I put a Leapers UTG 4-16x44 AO Accushot SWAT Rifle Scope, EZ-TAP, Illuminated Mil-Dot Reticle, 1/4 MOA, 30mm Tube (PY-A-5191) which was a terrific fit for the Picatinny platform on this rifle. Unfortunately, I returned my rifle for a replacement and I hope the new one will yield much better accuracy. I will update my review once I receive the replacement.
