Benjamin Jim Shockey Steel Eagle Air Rifle
Benefits of the Nitro Piston 2 over a metal mainspring:
Your box may state the wrong velocity with lead pellets.
The Steel Eagle is a powerful breakbarrel hunter destined for greatness on the trail or target range. Bearing the name of famed professional hunter and big game outfitter Jim Shockey, this breakbarrel has “hunting airgun” written all over it. The Steel Eagle features an all-weather synthetic stock, and front and rear sling mounts for the addition of a sling for carrying in all seasons. A new integrated sound-suppression system will ensure quiet follow up shots in the field.
With Crosman’s Nitro Piston 2 Technology, the Steel Eagle really puts a spin on your pellets! This powerful gas-piston can send pellets flying at speeds up to 1400 fps (1200 in lead .177) and deliver 23 fpe when they arrive on target (26 fpe in .22). With this much power, the Steel Eagle can strike fast and hit hard—ideal for small game and getting in trigger time on the range. Simply mount your included 3-9x32mm CenterPoint scope to the Weaver/Picatinny rail, and get ready to blast away!

Things I liked: Grip, polymer stock, and accuracy. Even though I haven't shot the recommended for break-in the Steel Eagle is extremely accurate with quarter size groups at 30 yards.
Things I would have changed: I wouldn't change anything.
What others should know: Very easy to cock and the trigger can be adjusted to make it lighter, which I did.
Things I liked: The gun is easy to cock,easy to carry and shoots. Very well.It has great nock down power on small game. THIS is the 2nd one I own and shoots as good as the 1st one. Buy a good scope for it and you be pleased.
Things I would have changed: Put a good scope on it!
What others should know: Had cocking problem with 2nd one but pyramid air was excellent at replacing it. You can see how much I like this gun.sharp looking too!
Things I liked: The feel and weight of the rifle. It feels like I have control of the rifle due to the texture of the stock. I can group shots within one inch at 30 yards on a regular basis is the wind is calm and quite a few time with in 1/2 of an inch. I have the sling which also adds to the control while standing(which I seldom do) even though the rifle weighs around 8 lbs.The 3x9x40 scope works just fine but still ordered a new one and will give this one to my son who has a cheep 4x on his pellet gun.
Things I would have changed: Like everyone else..better scopes and mounts/rings. Also, Crosman should make the baffle stronger since it is on the end and is in the area where one would grab the barrel to cock it. I think this added to the stress on the end of the baffle and is a large part of it failing.
What others should know: After a few shots one of the scope mount screws broke.(I probably over tightened it). I went out and purchased new Weaver mounts and they work great. The baffle in the end of the barrel broke 1 year after my purchase and 600+ pellets. I emailed Pyramyd Air telling them my issue. They referred me to Crosman and the next day I received an email stating 2 new baffles were on their way (free of charge) even though the rifle was out of warranty....Can't say enough about the excellent customer service. I also purchased two other rifles this Christmas. One for my son and one for my wife. We have had a fantastic New Years Day shooting in the back yard (until the baffle broke). This is a great family activity for all ages with proper training.

Hello, I just purchased this gun and upon opening the box i set up the scope and went to take a shot, when i clicked the safety off a small pin fell out of the gun and the safety became loose. Now the safety bounces around and i can't tell how the pin fits into the gun. I don't have experience taking one of these guns apart at all and was wondering if this is common, and if so is there an "easy fix"
See if you can return this rifle. It sounds like this is a manufactures defect.
I accidentally dry fired it.... did I damage the gun?
I doubt that you damaged it with one accidental dry fire. Just try not to make a habit of it or else you will. However, go about breaking in your air rifle as normal and if you notice after about a thousand shots that it's shooting very inconsistently at its target. Then you may have damaged the piston head. I would also purchase a better scope for this particular air rifle. Because, the one it comes with is cheap and is not reliable past 6 magnification.
Why don't you have a recommended scope for this rifle? I find that to be a bit odd. Is it because you have no good, heavy recoil scopes for it? The scope it does come with gets beat up really good by this air rifles heavy recoil.
