Things I liked: I love this gun! it needs a good UTG scope and the barrel must be cleaned before you start to see how really good this thing is.I found the H&N Hornets .22 16.20gr were a laser on this thing at 25 yards all though it shot just about every pellet very well

Things I would have changed: The trigger! I had to take it out and polish and grease the sear pin and then it was fine but you can shoot it as is for the money it's a small issue.

What others should know: Just a very accurate rifle for a very good price and its a .22! so its great for chipmunks and squarells or just practicing you target skills.I really enjoy shooting this thing.

Things I liked: It's weighty enough to make controlling it easy. It's got medium power. It actually feels like a real gun, not these toy things. This is a pretty decent little pesting, plink,trainer gun.

Things I would have changed: I really cannot ask for much at The $99 price point that I got mine from Walmart. I literally walked past it on sale and made an impulse buy. I'm glad I did.

What others should know: Don't even try the scope that comes with it save your time. Buy some accushot mounts and buy a decent scope and you will be satisfied. My positive experience comes from a big box purchased 22 cal Chinese made weapon. I've waited over a year to review this. I've put over 2000 pellets through it. Super sorry about buddies problems,but I haven't had anything come loose, fall off or malaligned. Mine's been on numerous outdoor excursions, it's been rained on. I have not treated it like royalty and it's still functions flawlessly.

Things I liked: Absolute powerhouse in this price range. I was reaching out to 85 yards in .22 cal. and it smacked dirt HARD. Fantastic accuracy once it's broken in.

Things I would have changed: Good God THE TRIGGER!!!! Crosman seriously needs to take this one back to committee. The model I picked up from Wally World (2020) requires removing the trigger guard to adjust. I just let it be and forced myself to get used to it.

What others should know: Don't use a light grip with your trigger hand. Firm up, and get on that scope. It's going to jump, so break yourself of any flinching reflex while practicing. Took me approximately 150 shots to break in. The stock scope is not as bad as some have written elsewhere, but bring your allen wrenches to the range just in case (the mounts came loose a couple times but they're holding steady now).

  • Stanley from USA asked:

    can I add or is there a kit to add open iron sights to a Benjamin Prowler or similar air rifle?

    • Mark from USA:

      No. There is no front sight unit that will fit. You would have to custom make one.

  • Richard from USA asked:

    What size screw goes in the stock of my .22 benjamin prowler?

    • Mark from USA:

      Contact Crosman at 800-724-7486

  • Kenneth from USA asked:

    I have a Benjamin nitro prowler .22 its about two weeks old. What would cause a hammering and ping sound when fired. And is this normal. I am new to air rifles.
