Things I liked: Accuracy. Quality. Good feel
Things I would have changed: I added a Williams /Crosman 64 peep sight and had to modify it to get it low enough. Either the holes in the sight or the gun were off.

Things I liked: How can you not love an American classic? After reading several reviews and online buzz you get a better understanding of just how attached people can and do get to this gun. When you first open the box, how can you not smile. The finish is fantastic. My wife thought it looked like a shotgun because of the air chamber I guess, underneath the barrel. The weight is perfect for any age, & will not fatigue if carrying for hunting for example. There simply is not another gun out there near this price range that can touch this quality of workmanship, accuracy, aesthetics, and fun factor. From the very 1st shot you take you are grinning from ear to ear. A little shocked at the crack it gives when discharging at first, but it makes you say "WOW" there is definitely plenty of power here. If backyard shooting, you definitely don't need to pump it the full 8 times. 4 or 5 is DEFINITELY enough. 5 pumps will go through metal cans & water bottles, even dispatch squirrels or small rodents. Once the sights are set & tightened to "your" personal liking, forget it for good! You almost can't miss your target!!! If you are in the market for a new gun, a first timer, or just wanting something different from what you have, don't even think for another second. Just buy it. I can almost guarantee whatever caliber you buy, you will want the other caliber immediately. I can guess with high confidence this gun does NOT get returned or exchanged, because your first impression should be way more than you'd expect for what you paid.
Things I would have changed: A little bit better finish on the bluing. Mine had a bump on the top of the barrel, and the first time I touched it, the bump came off and exposed the finish underneath. Other than that, just the cocking effort. It can be a little tough after quite a few rounds are dispatched through it. You will definitely get a workout! Other than that, nothing.
What others should know: If using just for close target shooting, i.e. 50FT. or less, don't bother with a scope. The open sights are tight and fantastic! If you Might be using it for small game hunting occasionally, buy a Leapers bug buster or something similar in size. Otherwise, this gem is go to go right out of the box! Enjoy.......

Things I liked: the fact everything is made out of metal and wood nothing plastic. the accurcy is very respectable (especially at 30ft away ) , decent weight to it
Things I would have changed: more FPS maybe 1000?
What others should know: after awhile dirt grime and oil has sepped into the seals/pump area, ive taken the rifle apart as much as i could cleaned it out very good and its like the day i opened it up, and holds air in the rifle without any leaks (before over night the air would escape)

Things I liked: The feel is solid. & comfortable. The sights are true once you find that perfect spot for alignment. You can nail tacks at 30 feet. This is the most consistant air gun I have ever fired. I have shot air rifles for the last 50 years & Benjamin is the BEST.
Things I would have changed: NOTHING!
What others should know: I have hunted all my life and now live in the city so the only hunting that i get to do now is when i get an occasional squirrel to cross my property, but it is usually their last time. The .177 cal has more power & is my own personal choice.
