Things I liked: this rifle shoots good. the cocking gets a bit toughbut i am 61 years old. the scope works great it is very accurate. now i want to try a pcp gun i think recoil will be less

Things I would have changed: the trigger is a little stiff even adjusted but you get by with it.

What others should know: it is a great gun to start with. well worth the money it costs

Things I liked: The accuracy !!!! With the H&N barracudas it is truly spooky accurate !!! Quiet and easy to cock. Took a bit to break in and settle down(200) or so shots . Light weight pellets spray like a leaky water hose . Love the fact it DOES NOT come with iron sights ,,, I hate the open sights ..they only cut up your hands

Things I would have changed: The trigger is ........Like a rusty car door . 12 dollars on eBay and it's now a target trigger . Grooved receiver for scope rings worthless . Plan on buying a quality picitinny rail . And torque it TIGHT . Others cry about the stock, but it's not a big deal

What others should know: Don't hesitate to buy this rifle , but plan on a better scope and 50 or so bucks on rings, base , trigger and it's a winner !

  • Ernie Robinson from USA asked:

    Did anyone else find problems with cocking this gun? I encountered a very stiff barrel when cocking for the first time, thinking the gun is new. Due to medical problems I struggled to pull the barrel for a second shot and bent the arm that charges the cylinder rendering the gun useless. Has anyone else had this problem?

    • Stanley from USA:

      The barrel rubs against the stock when new so i made more clearance with a dremel tool. No more rubbing now.

    • Stanley from USA:

      I used motor oil on mine now it is very smooth ( no problems ) easy to cock. Big improvement?

    • Chevota from USA:

      I've taken two of them apart now, neither would cock like you mentioned. The problem is the inside of the piston skirt is scraping the nitro because it is a very tight fit. Fixes would be buttoning the piston or reversing the nitro. I will try both and post results under reviews when I have time. There was no grease in either gun, just a very thin coat of very thin oil, and none between the piston and nitro. If people don't want to return it or take the gun apart they might try greasing that area which is accessible thru the cocking slot if the stock is removed.

    • Chevota from USA:

      I'd say it's defective and return it. Otherwise you could take the gun apart and look for the problem. Friction at the piston skirt can cause that, but usually only in used guns with improper lube, like using silicone.

  • Brian from USA asked:

    Has anyone else had any problems with the scope that comes with this rifle? After 3 months of tryin to site this thing in my scope reticle is "jumping" whenever I try to make adjustments.

    • Stanley from USA:

      I sighted my in 10 rounds seems to work just fine still holding zero , maybe you got a bad one?

    • Chevota from USA:

      If it's under warranty I'd exchange it. If not I'd first try screwing the W/E screws in and out several times to see if it gets better. I'm guessing the ends of the W and/or E screws are rough at the ends. Look into the front of the scope with a flashlight and you can see what I mean. If they're rough and that didn't work you could sand them. Write me at chevota at hotmail for details.

    • Brian from USA:

      The reticle jumps when I adjust the w/e. So how do I fix the problem?

    • Chevota from USA:

      If it jumps while turning the W/E screws then they screws are probably rough on the ends. If it jumps while shooting then you don't have enough spring pressure and you should shim the scope to increase it.

  • Djay from USA asked:

    What type of lube in cylinder and chamber should be used in theBenjamin NP Limited Edition Air Rifle? Thanks for any help.

    • Edith from USA:

      Crosman recommends using silicone chamber oil (PY-A-311).

    • Chevota from USA:

      I use synthetic motor oil, the weight is up to you but I prefer lighter. Lighter makes more power, heavier last longer. I'd stay away from silicone, which many will argue, but silicone is not a lube for metal and typically costs you power as well.

    • Dan the Man from USA:

      Use Crosman Silicone Chamber Oil....
