Things I liked:

Poor to very poor accuracy at barely 25yrds. I get a 3-4" grouping. I first thought that the scopes were inaccurate, that the difference of temperature, since I shoot from inside the house, opening the window and lowering the temperature, was a factor; I replaced several scopes and at this point I actually have an ATN X-SIGHT 4K PRO 5-20X. I should be able to put the pellet up the rat's nose. No can do. For all the pzazz, it is a below average rifle. I'm actually looking to sell it to buy something accurate.

Things I would have changed:

Make it meet it's promised accuracy!

    I got this back on Feb 24, 2022 I relly like this Benjamin Armada .25 I had one before Had to sell it do to need rent money. So i am in a better place now So right from the first one I have always likes this setup they did a great job on it I like how power i have mine setup to 75 yeards for squral hunting and it bags them very well one shot. this jun skeaks for its self. i am very happy i was able to still get this gun. I did do the upgrade with a MEGPOL stock and grip. feels much better. over all i am trule happy with the buy.

    Things I would have changed:

    I cant think of anything at this time. this is a great gun right out of the box.

    What others should know:

    I WOULD SAY TO ALL PARINTS THIS IS NOT A TOY FOR ANY CHILD TO BE LEFT ALONE WITH OUT ADULT TO SHOW THEM HOW TO USE THIS IT WILL KILL. THE OTHER THING TAKE YOUR TIME AND SIGHT IN THE SCOPE. WHEN YOU DO THAT IT IS A GREAT GUN TO SHOOT.

    Things I liked:

    Everything except the fact that it is too heavy to for me shoulder and shoot for squirrel hunting, so I turned it into a .25 cal. bench gun.

    Things I would have changed:

    If I had to do it over again I would get the synthetic stocked .25 Marauder to hunt with.

    What others should know:

    The AR metal Ar style stock makes this Marauder version too heavy for hunting squirrels etc.

    Things I liked:

    +Quiet. About as loud as a spring powered Airsoft gun. The impact of the pellet against a cardboard target makes much more noise than the gun shot. +Accurate. This is my first PCP gun so I cannot compare it to other PCPs. Compared to my GAMO break-barrel, this thing is incredibly accurate. +60-80 Rounds per fill* - I fill the tank to 3000 PSI and plink until it falls to 2000 PSI. +Lots of mounting space. +Looks cool. I like how the air tank is hidden.

    Things I would have changed:

    -I have read a lot of negative feedback regarding the stock. I think it's OK, but I am still very novice in the airgun world and I probably don't know any better.

    What others should know:

    +I have really enjoyed shooting this gun so far. I have gone through about 300-rounds. The low noise level is great - I don't feel guilty about possibly annoying/disturbing the neighbors.

    Things I liked:

    I like the set up but that is about it. I had high expectations for this gun but very disappointing.

    Things I would have changed:

    The mag is so hard to get in and out. Gun will not group at all even after trying numerous pellets.

    What others should know:

    The 25. Armada I purchased may be a lemon but I definitely would not recommend this rifle to know one. The best grouping I have had with this gun was 4 inches at 25 yards. That is after trying numerous pellets through it. I feel like all I have at this point is a 700 dollar paper weight.

    This air rifle is an awesome air gun. It is accurate and easy to operate. I like the safety as it is easy to set and release. The included scope is great.

    What others should know:

    I had a problem with the fill valve on the air reservoir the second time I tried to refill it. Mathew was very helpful and after several tries he made arrangements to return and exchange it. He was very patient and courteous. Waiting now for the replacement rifle.

    Things I liked:

    After having successfully put over 1000 rounds down the barrel of my Armada. I can tell you that this rifle is, hands down, one of the most accurate, quiet, and powerful air guns I have ever shot. I can not wait to add more modifications.

    Things I would have changed:

    The buttstock, it is extremely wobbly coming out of the box. I highly recommend to swap this out with a nicer one of your choosing.

    What others should know:

    This gun is definitely hand pump friendly, unless you own more than 2 PCP air guns, I would seriously not recommend buying a compressor or accessory air tanks. However, it is a bit of a workout to pump up the gun. I recommend a fill to about 2800 psi.

    Things I liked:

    Purchased .25 - My first PCP rifle and very happy with day one at the range. Quiet and fairly accurate (Need to test more variety of pellets). Love how the gun looks and many people at the range could not believe it was an airgun. Looking forward to taking it out again.

    Things I would have changed:

    I would prefer the pressure gauge be somewhere that I can actually see it. (Top or side). Pressure bleed tool should be included with the gun, like it used to be. Include a hex key to tighten the set screw on the buttstock lever. Thing fell right off at the range. (not sure on actual size, somewhere between 1.5mm and 2mm) Magazines are a bit tough to get in and out sometimes. It would be easier if I could lock the bolt all the way to the back, instead of having to hold it the final 1/4 inch and try manipulate the magazine with one hand.

    What others should know:

    Pistol grip and butt stock are cheap trash. Looks like both are easily replaceable though. Breach O-ring came out and got stuck on the bolt. Had to look up where it came from after the range. Unsure if that is a common problem but I hope not. 3 magazines brought the PSI from 3k down to 2k (24 shots) If using a handpump, be ready for a workout!

    Things I liked:

    I'm relatively new to airguns (started with a Hatsan 95 last summer), but this gun is AMAZING! First, it looks sleek and modern. Second, it is very accurate and has NO recoil, and I was able to sight it in very quickly. Finally, it is QUIET. That's a huge asset for me, since I live in a densely-populated, gun-unfriendly state, yet need something with a low noise signature for backyard pest control without attracting attention. The first time I shot this gun, I thought the pellet didn't discharge, because I barely heard anything beyond the trigger pull and a "ping." But it functioned perfectly...it is literally THAT quiet. The sound of the pellet hitting the target is probably louder than the gun itself. The scope is a 2nd focal plane, but is clear and accurate. I paired the gun with a Benjamin Traveler Gen 2 air compressor, which seemed like a more convenient (if more expensive) solution than refilling air tanks. The compressor charges the gun to 3,000 psi within a couple of minutes.

    Things I would have changed:

    So far, nothing! I am in love with this gun. I was initially hesitant to incur the high cost associated with the gun AND the compressor, but I'm sure that both will provide many years of quiet and accurate service, and will be well worth it, in my opinion. If you're going to shoot at long-range, perhaps buying the gun and a 1st FP scope separately would make more sense, but for my shooting (generally 30 yards or less), the 2nd FP scope will be just fine. I also purchased a few extra 10-round .22 cal magazines to keep an adequate supply of ammo ready in order to combat the summer onslaught of squirrels and chipmunks. ;O)

    What others should know:

    Yes -- you need one of these! As usual, Pyramid provided superb online customer support with my questions, as well as fast shipping.

    Nothing!

    What others should know:

    A little pissed that I paid to have Pyramid shoot 20 shots to hopefully site in the scope and all shots where off center and seemed to be no adjusting to get it perfectly on center, so ya may not want to waste your money on the option to have Pyramid people site your gun in!!!

    Things I liked:

    Bought this as a Christmas gift to myself now I've owned it about 9 months and got to use it a bit for target practice and small game. This is my first PCP and there is no looking back to break barrel rifles, I love the repeater with the 10 pellet magazine. After fixing the scope and sighting it it has become my favorite air gun. To say it is accurate it is somewhat of an understatement, I sighted it at about 100ft and it shoots groupings within a dime. Love the bipod as it makes it so versatile and easy to aim as well as the adjustable stock. Got the Benjamin compressor along with the gun and it's extremely easy to use and fill the gun, highly recommended.

    Things I would have changed:

    I would recommend using some higher quality mag pull components and if a pressure regulator can be added it would be even better, otherwise as long as you monitor the pressure and make tiny scope adjustments for the pressure curb you should be good. None of these impact the performance as it stands. For a regular PCP it is outstanding.

    Things I liked:

    Just got my Armada a couple days ago. This is my first PCP rifle, and my first 22 cal. I also bought the Venturi Nomad to use to charge it. I really love this rifle - I had no problem zeroing in the scope and within 15 minutes my shots were tight (within 3/4 inch at 40 yards). I charged it to 3000 pounds and rattled off 60 shots before it was anemic; I did not expect that many shots. The shot cartridges are easy to deal with for sure. There's quite a lot of force in this rifle, as compared to one of my 177 cals with CO2 cartridges. I set up a target on a sheet of 5/8 ply to fine tune the scope, and within 20 shots there was a hole clear through the ply. I really like the scope, it's very powerful, very easy to adjust, focuses very well, and is overall much better quality than what I have used previously. I found the trigger to be fine, I have read that others have changed it out, but I don't plan to do that. The Venturi Nomad charged it up in under 10 minutes.

    Things I would have changed:

    The rifle is HEAVY. I'm not going hunting with this LOL, but it's great on its bipod legs for shooting targets. The baffles work so well that the gun makes what I found to be a more mechanical sounding noise as opposed to an air escaping noise.

    What others should know:

    When you receive the gun, it will have some air in it, enough to expel a bullet. The manual also recommends to leave some air in it, so as such you always have to treat it as always live. With my Co2 powered air rifles obviously this is not the case. I looked at the Umarex Gauntlet, and also a Air Arms Ultimate Sporter, and I have no regrets about my selection, this is going to be fun. I plan to push my targets further and further away until I find the limits of accuracy.
