Review this product
22 September 2008  

Things I liked: Great gun... accuracy is top notch out to about 50 yards...assuming that you are sighted in at that distance... if you sight in at 25 yards there is significant drop when shooting at 50 yards...still tight groups but much lower point of impact. Great clean and simple walnut stock. Overall weight is very light... ends up being perfect with a midsize scope and mounts.
Things I would have changed: I added sling swivel studs, and stripped the sights off of the gun for a cleaner look with the 6X32mm Bug Buster II scope that I mounted.
What others should know: This is a great gun... you will get about 20-25 full power shots before the point of impact begins to droop... but if you plot the droop based on how much pressure the gun has left, you can get up to 50 accurate shots by holding a specific amount over the target. I recommend this gun highly... it is just fun to shoot. Mine is .22 caliber and used primarily for hunting grouse and hare.

Things I liked: A pretty fair PCP for the money. I already owned a .177 Discovery when I ordered this .22. I have several high dollar PCP's that are better but find I enjoy the light weight and not having to guard the finish on this gun enough I tend to use it more than the higher priced ones. Plus it is cheap cheap cheap when compared to other PCP's
Things I would have changed: As a take off on the Realtors saying of Location, Location, Location. I say about the Discovery changes needed Trigger, Trigger, Trigger.
What others should know: Clean the barrel good before shooting it. It has grease and crud in it like you wouldn't believe. Just take a few minutes to run a few patches down it before popping in the first pellet.

Things I liked: The power and number of shots you get for a 2000PSI fill is great! This gun is light, so put a good scope on it, even if its heavy.
Things I would have changed: I would like a lighter trigger pull with a true 1st and 2nd stage. I am already looking at trigger and Sear mods and tunes to try to level out the velocity per shot.
What others should know: I have an Air Arms S400 Xtra, pin point accuracy at 35 yards and 1/2" at 50 yards with a very light trigger pull, but the fill to 3000PSI is a workout with my Hill pump. On the other hand, out to 35 yards the Disco is close to matching the AA S400 for accuracy when you are shooting in the 1800 to 1500 PSI range on a fill.

Things I liked: I bought this air rifle for hunting in the fields, for squirells, and other small game. I bought this because it is very light weight, easy cocking without moving ur hands all around. I can cock this air rifle just using my index finger and thumb. I found that very usefull. And I liked the length, not to long. But i think the stock could have been polished off a little better. But then again you can only get so much for $293.
Things I would have changed: I do not like the trigger at all, It says it is a 2 stage but i could not find any two stages. And it is plastic. And I think they could have added another band to the barrel for less flex at the tip of the barrel. And the open sights are only accurate up to 10 yards. But still a great air rifle. (I am just a little picky) haha.
What others should know: If you are looking for a nice size, light weight air rifle you want to take out hunting for a day. This is what you are looking for. I have the RWS 350 magnum also, And I would say they both have about the same power, if not the Benjamin has a little more. I personally like the Benjamin over the RWS 350 because it is lighter weight, smaller, And easier cocking. And u get a good weekend full of air gun shooting with it filled all the way. Great Air rifle. And thank you Pyramid Air for your great assistance.

Things I liked: Extreme value for money, very accurate and powerful enough. Good woodwork with fine fit & finish. My 177 makes 900 fps with 10.20 gn pellets, easy to shoot sub 1 inch at 50 yards, sometimes 1/2 inch. Easy to work on, seems durable and with inexpensive spareparts. Very easy to pump due to low pressure valve. Havent tried Co2 but lots of shots using a divers tank. Excellent filingsystem (Foster) and very good plastic fillingcap to protect them
Things I would have changed: The triggerunit is plastic. It works decent but feels very cheap. The triggerhouse and triggerblade should be metal. The two-screw triggermod should be standard from factory. Same as the retrofit power-adjuster. Degasser should be included with every gun. The screws holding the valve visable from the outside of the tube shold be allentype for better looks.
What others should know: I have used about every PCP on the market during the last 10 years and owned several of them too. This Discovery is a very good rifle and outstanding in value for money.
