Things I liked: I decided to take a chance on the M12 because of the price. I cleaned it before the first shoot as I had read an in-depth online review about how oily the piston is. They were not kidding. It stinks so bad for the first few hundred rounds. Once you get the excess oil burned out of the gun it really starts to break in nicely. It took about 4 solid cleanings before and after shooting in order to get the rifle to perform the way it's designed. It has what some would call a heavy break in period but it suddenly came right in to it. It drops 1" groups at 25 yards in a standing freehand position. On the bench, you'll use the same hole every time in the target with only slight variance. It does occasionally throw a flier but I attribute that to individual artillery hold and not rifle performance and mainly pellet choice. Mine seems to like the .22 RSB Exact Jumbo Diablo 15.89 Gr. and shoots the Benjamin Discovery Hollow Point pretty well but not as tight at the target. I gave it 4/5.

What others should know: I stripped the stock finish on the third day I had it. I read one review about the finish quality and would have to agree. The gun has a beautiful grain that just isn't capitalized on well enough with it's tobacco lacquer coat finish. I took it down to the bare wood and gave it three coats of light stain to pull out some of the grain detail and I keep it hitting it with oil until it won't soak up any more. It's a good looking gun now. Well worth every penny and if you want to customize it, you won't feel like you're taking the chance of ruining a $500 gun. I emailed customer service about the oil and the stink and they said to just keep shooting and cleaning it. They were 100% right. A person would be crazy to pass up a rifle with this much potential at this price. I also added a small piece of plastic as a shim in the cocking linkage which seemed to eliminate the rattling often heard when handling the gun. Also, without bore/iron sights, you can go low with a regular scope mount.

Things I liked: It looks good from a distance.

Things I would have changed: Lose the fake muzzle brake and finish the stock so it doesn't look like plastic. I would also add barrel pivot washers, this gun has none. Get rid of the felt oil holder on the piston to stop the dieseling. Supply a real barrel that is rifled and not a fake barrel with a liner that is only rifled for the 1st nine inches. Use screws to hold things together, not pins.

What others should know: I didn't expect much considering the price. Gun had lots of black cruddy stuff inside along with pieces of felt material. Way over oiled. The air port angles up from the compression tube to barrel and barely qualifies as a hole, more like a tiny cave opening. Gun has no barrel pivot washers or anywhere to put them so there is metal to metal contact here. Gun averaged high 500's to low 600's with a 14.3gr pellet but had velocity spreads reaching 100fps. Gun is loud and twangy. The compression tube has a tight spot making it difficult to remove the piston. I think with some tuning and TLC it may be an okay shooter, I'm still working on mine. As is, very cheaply made and not a good choice. For a few bucks more you can get a Stoeger X20S2 which out classes the M12 by far. I cannot recommend this gun. With some tuning

Things I liked: I love the Monty Carlo stock. This rifle fits right into my arms. It is smooth to cock and fire. Very good repeatability. I fire it on a fifty yard range and it never disappoints me.

Things I would have changed: I changed the scope to a higher quality.

What others should know: Keep your rifle clean and oiled.

  • Frank from USA asked:

    Says the barrel is 9.25" long. Is this correct ? I have an older Mendoza and it has a 15.75" barrel. Can an owner please measure and post ! Thanks

    • Tom from USA:

      The barrel has a rifled liner that's 9.25" long. The rest is freebore, meaning not rifled, that measures .32" from the liner to muzzle brake.

  • Phillip from USA asked:

    Where is this rifle made? Thanks for your time.

    • Frank from USA:

      Mexico
