    Things I liked:

    Had this Rifle since before Christmas really like everything about, very clean Rifle no blemishes at all. Accuracy is Great, Very Quite. Im keeping it.

    Things I would have changed:

    Center Point Scope just seems hard to get it Clear. Reticle is Very Thin. Im returning Scope.

    What others should know:

    Ill be putting a Diff Scope on it because of issues stated above. Prob put a UTG True Hunter on it. Read you Manual, especially when it comes to increasing Velocity. Do your Metering Screw 4 1/2 turns out and than your Hammer Spring and Striker.(FPS is 1025 with 15.89 JSB)

    Things I liked:

    ARMADA 22CAL, 1021 FPS. 16grain Pellet. Very Accurate, Very Quite. Im Backyard Shooter.

    Things I would have changed:

    The Magazine, already had issues on Second Reload, it jammed had tp push out and reinsert it.

    What others should know:

    Ok, Long Story... I purchased both Bullboss 22cal and Armada 22cal Combos during Holidays. 11% off and 40$ Bullseye Bucks were Redeemed. Total 1365.00$ Bullboss has so many Blemishes and some Screws are different Colors. Fill Probe on Bullboss leaked second time I Aired it, had to change Orings on Probe. Between the 2 Air Rifles ARMADA Blew Bullboss away. Armada Very Clean, Great lines, well built ,Solid. Everything looks good on the Armada. Velocity is Adjustible, read Manual. Centerpoint Scope is pretty cool, the Adjustable Objective for yards your shooting at is a Dial on left side of Scope. Never seen that before, very convenient. Not really big on the AR 15 Look but Benjamin pulled it off, looks Great! Rifle is very light 7 to 8 pounds. So.. the Bullboss is being returned, no doubt! Fps on Bullboss 16grain Pellet was 1049fps if you wanted to know. Armada very Sharp looking PCP, you wont be sorry. If you get this PCP.

    Things I liked:

    Really like the bolt action, trigger is excellent, clip is very well designed for use, very accurate, quiet, easy to handle and carry, fun to shoot. appears to be well made, shot 400 pellets thru it, .22 cal is a good choice. no problems what so ever. pressure gauge matches fill station bottle gauge so no guessing on the difference. the looks and options of the rail platform make it very versatile. scope is a good addition along with bipod, some one was thinking when it was desidned.

    Things I would have changed:

    the only MINOR thing is the barrel, maybe needs to be more solid braced. but i don't know the design so maybe it is better with the flexing.

    What others should know:

    money well spent, kinda spendy at first with the rifle and fill bottle but shooting it overcomes the cost by far. will last long time, will not sell it. it is a keeper. i understand now why it's reputation is great.

    Things I liked:

    Just love it! I've been a pellet plinker since I was a young man and now.... I'm old. My first PCP was the Disco, thought I would be satisfied with it but I wanted more. I eye-balled the Marauder but I love the idea of a all black Magpul M-LOK slotted all-metal handguard with Picatinny rail space just brought on a grin, but it cost more... was it worth it. Well here's my thinking, M-rod syth = $530, add a 4-16 x 56 30mm Mil-Dot scope = $180, now add a bi-pod = $35 that comes in at $745. So I add $15 and get the Armada, that works for me. Now some folks won't go for the Armada style but for those of us that do will snap it up. The fit and finish is very good for a rifle at this pricing. No matter how good it looks if it doesn't shoot worth a crap it doesn't matter. That is NOT a problem with my Armada. Shooting life size critter targets (squirrels) a 50yds with JSB .25 Diabolo Exact Kings 25.39gr is 'almost' too easy.

    Things I would have changed:

    The adjustable stock has the ability to rattle when it's opened. This can be solved by purchasing a Magpul stock but I'm cheap, I can live with it, doesn't effect the way I shoot this rifle. Everything else I'm satisfied with the Armada.

    What others should know:

    This is NOT a light gun! I'm no sissy but I wouldn't want to carry this all about through the woods and I have no plans of doing such. The varmints will have to come to me and that's no problem. I also save money, I quit the gym and I hand pump this beast. I'm 67, I need the exercise, I shoot appox 3 times a week, 5 pumping sessions a day, not easy but doable and the benefit, shooting a sweet, quit, accurate rifle.

    Things I liked:

    The bipod scope and magazine. It has two rails to go on the side for attaching what ever you want.

    Things I would have changed:

    You have to focus the scope just right to be able to to the the cross hair clearly. If not, is either gues work or a rather fuzzy cross hair.

    What others should know:

    Unless you love the look or are only shooting with a place to use a bipod, get the murader. Its cheaper and not as front heavy.

    Things I liked:

    Everything from stock to barrel, this rifle is amazing. Tons of fun to shoot, extremely accurate and very very sexy. Great package deal.

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing other than the stock parts I switched to magpul parts.

    What others should know:

    This rifle shoots the crosman premier domed pellets flawlessly with same hole accuracy. Shoots polymag shorts and jsb exact jumbo diablos very very well also. I suggest buying the standard version rifle and buying your own magpul parts separately on Amazon , you will come out cheaper. I have the .22 and get up to 60 consistent shots before it needs more air. Don't get me wrong I love my choice but if you are questioning .22 or .25 go with .25 for the extra punch. Oh and get some moly-graph grease for the bolt action, makes it 100x smoother. The mk4 hill pump is the way to go for recharging this rifle.

    Things I liked:

    Nice bipod, gun is great, very accurate and lots of power. Fairly quiet. I would compare the .25 caliber model to a .22 discovery on noise.

    Things I would have changed:

    The scope is junk. Even with the side parallax adjustment, I had a very difficult time trying to get a clear sight picture at multiple ranges and multiple scope power settings. Eye relief is not very good either.

    What others should know:

    I would suggest getting the gun bare and buying a different scope. The Leapers scopes are much better for not that much more money. The gun is pretty heavy in comparison with others I have used. It's basically the size of a full size rifle or shotgun. Wasn't an issue for me, but others who saw it were very surprised by the weight and heft. Also, using the Benjamin hand pump it was a LOT of work to reach the max. 3000 psi limit for the gun. I'm 6ft and 170 lbs, and after 2500psi I struggled to get to 3000psi. At 2500 psi, I got about 10 good shots before the gun was at 1000psi and I had to refill.

    Things I liked:

    One of the best out of the box shooters I've ever had.

    Things I would have changed:

    The trigger doesn't impress me but is adjustable so learn and live.

    What others should know:

    It shoots well with Exact 25.39 gr. domed pellets.Also,my tank is low and can only get just over 2000psi.With the factory set up I'll get 10 to 12 shots in the bull at 25yds.

    Things I liked:

    Mostly great looking gun other than the butt stock and the canted barrel (more on that later). Very accurate. Not the most powerful PCP my any means but it's no slouch. Very quiet gun for what it is. Very accurate despite the canted barrel. Scope zeros easily and holds zero very well (no recoil).

    Things I would have changed:

    Crossman quality control.. Mine came with a canted barrel that is about a quarter of any inch off center.. Read blogs on the issue and you will see it's not just me.. Been reaching out to Crossman since day 1 and still waiting. They acknowledge there is a problem though.. Customer service guy said that their support people/person has been busy but assured me they would get back to me. 1 month and a dozen calls later, still busy I guess? (Even tho looking at their facebook page and just guys shooting flies in their office with bb guns). Butt stock is cheap but I knew that I wasn't buying the Magpul edition so that's okay. It flops around a bit so probably a commercial stock on the Mil spec tube. Scope has terrible eye relief at full zoom and bad light gathering. Instruction manual is wrong on how you get to the adjustments to the gun (obviously copy paste from Marauder).

    What others should know:

    Buying this gun is a crapshoot.. you might get a straight one or you might get a canted one. The gun will probably shoot straight nonetheless because the barrel is no actually crooked, it's the entire gun assembly between the action and the lower assembly. It's actually cosmetic but it's very noticeable. Before plopping down $800 for this gun, ask yourself if you are willing to either live with these issues or okay with shipping it back. I don't have the time to deal with it so I'm living with it. Pyramid was nice enough to offer for me to return it but asked me to call Crossman first. Still waiting on Crossman... Overall, the mechanics of the gun work great. It's just whoever assembled it really didn't care..

    Things I liked:

    Great looks, design, and included accessories. Great scope. Powerful...punches through 3/4 inch plywood at 25 yards. Accurate once set up and zeroed.

    Things I would have changed:

    Buttstock not long enough (even extended) to rest on shoulder. Cheekpiece not comfortable for using scope. No instructions for mounting scope. Bolts need to be on right side of gun to be zeroed. Bipod somewhat short for firing off a normal table height.

    What others should know:

    Plastic 10 round cartridge prone to jamming with certain pellets.

    Things I liked:

    This has to be the quietest I have ever shoot.

    Things I would have changed:

    I would make it have extra air reservoirs, to be quickly changed out.

    What others should know:

    I believe the air rifle should come with a choice of means of filling. If you do not already have a fill station you would need a hand pump.

    Things I liked:

    Very Quiet, Light Weight, Powerful, Accurate,(It's a nail driver) Fully adjustable, and plenty of space for accessories. Absolutely wonderful package right from the factory. I am impressed that this is a pellet rifle

    Things I would have changed:

    The M-LOK pads should be the aluminum version for added strength. Already snapped one off. These composite ones are better off for a pistol or use with mini accessories. The scope range and zoom dials are a bit stiff and sometimes difficult to set on the fly while shooting from a free standing position with out the gun propped and can cost time when needing to make a shot quickly during a hunt. Hoping that will ease up the more I use it. Nice scope overall though.

    What others should know:

    Using the hand pump is very easy and should be operated moderately slow, pausing slightly between strokes to reduce overheating the seals and promoting longevity of the pump; also reducing the chances of moisture from building up in the rifle. Topping off takes only 5-10 minutes in range from 2000-2800 psi. Max pressure is 3000 psi. There is no need to max it out every time. Recommend leaving the rifle pressurized to keep the seals in their proper place when not in use. The rifle will shoot better and more accurate over time as the gun breaks in. Tuning the gun is a chore due to it has to be disassembled so to remain accurate, stick with the choice pellet you are tuning to. Over-tuning to a pellet not heavy enough suitable for the shooting pressure will cause the pellet to wonder around the target. The trigger is set well from the factory and does not need adjustment. Attempting to tune or adjust the rifle if you do not understand the workings and mechanisms can ruin the gun.
