The Benjamin Akela PCP Air Rifle is a bullpup hunting rifle with attractive Turkish walnut stock and refined craftsmanship that includes Benjamin's typical reliability. Shorter and lighter than similar models in the Benjamin lineup, the Akela still has up to 32 FPE of power in .22 caliber, making it ideal for small game hunting or pest control.

The Akela offers adjustability and flexibility with an adjustable cheek rest, external power adjuster, and integrated manometer. Combined with the shrouded barrel, this airgun allows shooters to get relatively quiet and dependable shots.

The checkered grip and thumbhole stock combine with the rubber recoil pad to create a comfortable gun that allows accurate shots, and the unique sliding feature of the cheek rest offers a compact method of getting proper eye relief and cheek weld. When filled to 3000 PSI, the 280cc air cylinder gives up to 60 shots, and the 2 included rotary magazines mean less stopping to reload.

This rifle features a long Picatinny optics rail for mounting scopes, and includes a vertical and horizontal shoe adjustment for the 2-stage trigger. With a convenient sidelever and a quick-disconnect Foster fitting, it's also simple to fill and shoot.

For a maneuverable and powerful bullpup air rifle to hunt small game that's both beautiful and precise, get the Benjamin Akela PCP Air Rifle now from Pyramyd Air.

Tech tip: Akela was tested by our tech department in .177 caliber with 8 grain pellets and shooting an average of 679 fps, it was dialed down to an impressive 8-10ftlbs muzzle energy, making it a great choice for basement plinking

Things I liked:

Excellent rifle, my brother and I have unanimously voted this gun #2 behind the .30 cal Evanix (super awesome). Excellent Accuracy!!! My brother is a better shot than me with a rifle. 5 shots through 1 hole at 25 yards. Many others have same results at 50 yards and further. Very happy with the quality and lever action is smooth. Charging is straightforward and guards work well. Trigger is a bit hair trigger, but I like it. Very Accurate. Excellent power.

Things I would have changed:

Lets face it, the adjustable cheek plate sucks. I have removed it and replaced it with a double back tape and nice fabric. It works for me. It does well with a 3x9 or 4x16, I usually don't use much magnification.

What others should know:

If you plan to use a scope and keep everything stock, consider tall scope mounts. I love this rifle.

Things I liked:

I got the .177. Has a really nice wood stock, especially for the money.

Things I would have changed:

Magazine issues. If not every magazine, then every other magazine, sometimes several times per mag, a pellet gets stuck in the transfer port. When I cycle the rifle, the pellet probe, pulls the pellet out the rear of the mag, causing it jam the rifle. There is no power curve. It starts hi, and every shot after will be slower. Point of impact keeps changing. You could get 8 great shots, 2 bad, 4 more good shots, followed by 3 or 4 inaccurate shots. Doesn't matter where in the power linear decent you are. To much choke on the barrel. Impossible to get most cleaning tips, past the choke. Tried 19 different pellets.

What others should know:

Going to install a regulator, polish the barrel and single load it. Something to tinker with. If you are wanting a out the box shooter, I would look elsewhere. I own several marauders and they all shoot great. The power adjustment, if you set the rifle at say 14 foot pound, by the fifth or six shot, you will be down to 13 foot pound, another five or six shots and you will be down to 12.

  • Jmc51@ix.netcom.com from USA asked:

    How do you remove the gun stock so I can refinish with coats of Tru Oil to bring out the beauty of the wood?

    • Aaron from USA answered:

      unscrew the allen bolt under the grip with the included allen key

  • Steven from USA asked:

    does akela make an adjustable buttpad or maybe an after market?

    • Scot from USA asked:

      do the strap connectors on the gun (for attaching strap) come off?

      • Aaron from USA answered:

        Yes they are just wood screws. Put a small allen wrench or screwdriver through the hole and turn them out. I removed mine.
