By Scott from USA on 2021-09-06 12:58:48

Things I liked:

The Power ! Awesome punch from an air pistol. Forget plinking beer cans.......I use empty 1.75l empty whiskey jugs. Pellet punches right thru one side and out the other ! DESTROYS bottles. Also, very accurate right out of the box.

Things I would have changed:

Not much. Its a bit heavy at first (takes some getting used to), but I suppose its tough to get this much power from a lighter air pistol.

What others should know:

I have read complaints about the trigger being heavy. It is out of the box, BUT, its fully adjustable. I haven't found the need to adjust it yet, as I got used to it as is very quickly.

    love the pistol- but

    Things I would have changed:

    see below

    What others should know:

    There seems to be a problem with the air connection - between the gun air adapter and the hose adapter, I have to fidget with this connection , before the air will fill the container, I have called the tech support and they sent me another hose connection- it seem that there is a very small gap that air will escape out of. I have to use silicone oil at this connection - before it actually makes an air connection. metric ? american standard ?conection. !!

    Things I liked:

    Nicely Styled .Very accurate with scope and trigger mod.

    Things I would have changed:

    Horrible trigger. Very long travel and probably around 6-7 lbs pull.

    What others should know:

    I modified the trigger by removing the trigger blade spring (its on youtube) and replaced the 8mm M3 seer screw with a M3 10mm one. About a 3 lb pull now and makes this gun a delight to shoot. Safety still works and does not fire when dropped. I make no claim of safety if others do this however.

    Things I liked:

    Price was fair, relatively easy to cock for a 65 year old small man, easy to load, accuracy limited by the cheap plastic sights.

    Things I would have changed:

    Eliminate 3 dot system on sights. Very hard to judge elevation, windage no problem. Trigger pull very hard. Limit distance to 10 meters for pests. When shot at typical empty can, light pellets break one side and make dent on far sid of can, pellet stays inside can. Heavier pellets go through can both sides at close distance. Same way when shooting into gallon milk jug filled with water at 10 meters. Heavier pellets break through. Light ones stay inside container.

    What others should know:

    Get on you tube, lighten trigger pull by removing one spring. Easy to disassemble. Probably will remove rear sight and install Red Dot or low power scope to reach full accuracy potential.

    Things I liked:

    Its a break barrel so no compressors or co2 needed. Adjustable rear sight with high visibility on both. Cocking extension for ease of use Pretty accurate once you adjust the rear sight. Good power.

    Things I would have changed:

    My number 1 gripe with this pistol is the non functional front picatinny rail. Fairly hard to cock without extension Horrendous trigger pull.

    What others should know:

    I bought this gun with the intention of building a nice, cheap to run rat slaying machine. The key feature that sold me on this gun was the front picatinny rail which I wanted to mount a laser light combo. The distance I would be shooting at is pretty fixed so a zeroed in laser would have been awesome. I can sadly say that if you are buying this gun with the intention of utilizing the front rail, dont do it. The rail is totally useless. Had I known this, knowing what I was trying to achieve I would have gone with something else. I really wanted this to work.

    Things I liked:

    Sighting and versatility

    Things I would have changed:

    The break extension I would not have it separate it should just be a one piece gun just make it long and leave it that way I put the extension on and will hardly ever take it off plus with a longer barrel it could be a lot more powerful and accurate

    What others should know:

    can't think of anything else

    Things I liked:

    I was given a trail NP by a neighabor who decided he didnt need it. I really like the gun overall. It seems to shoot hard and is accurate. I personally have not practiced with it as much as i would have liked to. But I have dropped a squirrel with it.

    Things I would have changed:

    I am not a fan of the grip. it feels like im trying to hold on to a brick. I have big hands, but still the grip is almost larger than what is comfortable for me.

    What others should know:

    From my limited experiance with it, I like it. I am more of a Co2 fan but this has plenty of hit power for what i need it for. Which is generally plinking and the occasional braining a squirrel.

    Things I liked:

    I have had this sitting around in the box for a while and got it out today to chronograph several pellets to see if it was anywhere near advertised speeds. I started with the pellet I have been using in most of my shooting lately in my two Diana Chasers, one rifle and one pistol. I was amazed with the low velocities I was getting as they advertise this to be a lot faster. This morning I tested three Winchester pointed 8.5 gr pellets results,456 498 432 after that i tried a Crosman 10.5 gr at 335 and last one of my favorites the Gamo red rocket 9.6 gr and got 383 . I was so disappointed I did no further testing at this time The slow and inconsistent velocities made me just put it back in the box and hope I can sell it

    Things I would have changed:

    Maybe this is not typical of what they do but I was so Disappointed that I Quit there . This is a new gun a bought quiet a while back and just left sitting Cocking effort was not excessive and the sights looked good Trigger is the worst i have had on anything, you could not begin to get any accuracy with that trigger pull it is verrry heavy and looonnng. I have been shooting firearms and recently pellet guns most of my life I am 77 to I have plenty of experience, owned and operated a gun shop for 7 years, I have a long and short barrel Diana Chasers And the test pellets are the ones I have shot thousands of and had consistently good results

    What others should know:

    This is only the results from one gun but if it is typical keep looking there are many that are better and cheaper. I was surprised and disappointed as I respect the Crosman and Benjamin names as being amoung the best

    Things I liked:

    Sturdy construction. I wanted a 'backpack breakbarrel' as an alternative to using 12-grams and this does the job. (The part of the barrel forward of the front sight that you see in the picture is an easily detachable cocking assist.) Despite my poor rating, I still pull it out for a change of pace from my beloved Diana Airbug.

    Things I would have changed:

    This is a very front-heavy airgun. It always wants to twist forward in my hand. I tried using a red-dot to put more weight above the grip but it didn't help. The iron sights would be fine except there's not enough vertical for me to zero it. Someday I'll try a laser sight on the underbarrel accessory rail... no idea what else you'd use that for.

    What others should know:

    You might need to karate-chop the snout to break the muzzle open. Other breakbarrels I have, you just grab & yank, but this one likes a sharp jolt to get the job started. You won't hurt the cocking assist.

    Things I liked:

    Very well built and appears to be ready for the outdoors. I have not been able to get outside with any of my recent additions to my collection of air rifles and pistols but I will give it a better hands on evaluation soon,

    Things I would have changed:

    Benjamin offers a stock attachment with many of their pistols and from the size and weight of this one I would think one would be available.

    Things I liked:

    Pistol is near impossible to cock. I couldnt cock it. My friend Rick could not cock it. His son who strength trains with weights cocked it finally after several tries. I dont know about accuracy as we are all tried out by our cocking experience.

    Things I would have changed:

    Making a pellet pistol that is much easier to cock or notifying potential buyers that this pellet pistol is next to impossible to cock.
