Things I liked: These are nice medium powered hunting rifles for up to rabbit size game. Easy to cock. Smooth firing cycle with the nitro piston. Well balanced. Not too heavy. Adjustable cheek piece is a plus. Composite stock, you don’t have to baby it in the field. Not hold sensitive, accurate.

Things I would have changed: The red plastic on the muzzle break detracts from the overall appearance of this otherwise great looking rifle. Better locking system on the cheek piece adjustment (easy fix, tighten it with pliers, leave it all the way down or tape some shims under it).

What others should know: I bought 2 of these when they were on sale last Christmas. I have tried about 20+ different kinds of pellets in mine. JLBs no luck, RWS no luck, Beeman no luck, Gamo no luck. From the Crossman line, only 2 pellets worked well. The Domed pellets out of the Benjamin Ultimate Hunting Assortment = 3/4 inch groups, and the inexpensive Crossman Hollow Points = 1 inch groups (w/some fliers), I have not tried the Premiers in the box. The best pellet I've found for mine so far, is the H&N Field Target Trophy 5.53 = 1/2 inch groups (all groups shot at 20 yards off a bench w/ upgraded scope). I don't know if I would pay $200 for one of these. I acquired a Diana 34P Striker Combo in .22 cal. on sale for $229. The Diana is a little more of a challenge to shoot but...

Things I liked: Quiet, hard shooting with smooth cocking action. The adjustable trigger is a nice feature allowing for matching my shooting style. I also like the synthetic stock; no worries about marring & scratching up a wood stock.

Things I would have changed: The barrel is encased in some molded material and the casting seams stand out pretty sharp (1/8 inch), an obvious unescapble indication of low manufacturing standards. The adjustable cheek riser is worthless as you reset any adjusted setting when you use the stock as leverage to cock the gun.

What others should know: 250 shot break-in period to firm up accuracy (per banjamin literature) is no joke. First few dozen shots I couldn't stay on a paper plat at 30 ft using a bench rest...and it was hard to keep shooting it based on faith it would improve so much. It did; 700 pellets later it's pretty decent though I still get wildly erratic shots now and then that are not explainable.

Things I liked: The weaver scope mount. I think all gas and spring piston gut should have the weaver mount rail. While furnished scopes are not very well rated, I have had no problems with the dozen or so guns that I have. But I think this gun ( and all of them) should be sold without a scope and let the buyer decide. I am very well satisfied with this gun but I do intent to upgrade the scope. Im 81 and cant use the open sights, so a scope is necessary

Things I would have changed: I favor wood. I would like to see a choice of wood or plastic stock, with a rubber recoil pad, just for looks.

What others should know: I havnt shot this gun much, maybe 500 times. The cocking action seems smooth, the cocking force is OK. With my rifle, it requires a pellet (22) seater. I cannot get a pellet to seat below flush with my fingers or thumb (Crossman hollow points).I made a seater out of a tooth brush handle and it seats constantly at the same depth. The gun is very accurate at 10 and 20 yards, but is loud with a metal pellet trap. Gets the neighbors attention
