Review this product
22 February 2009  

Things I liked: Solid construction , all metal and wood .....has a great substantial feel in the hand . I'm able to consistantly shoot great groups at 10 yards with just the sights on the gun , and power is good .
Things I would have changed: would be nice if the bolt mechanism was more like the Crosman 1377 pistol
What others should know: Nice soild piece of workmanship ....works very well and feels like it'll last forever , which if it's anything like the Benjamin rifles i've had experience with it probably will.

Things I liked: This pistol is very high quality, especialy because it is all metal and wood with no plastic. Its tough and very durable. It will last a long time if you take care of it. It shoots great at 5 pumps with 8 pumps being its max. Sights are fully adjustable with windage and elevation and the gun is very accurite. I was able to hit coke cans at 10 yards every shot. 20 yards would be a piece of cake. It would be worth putting the scope intermount adaptor on to use a scope. The wooden grip is very comftorble and looks nice on a gun like this.
Things I would have changed: I would change how difficult it is to pump, but then it probably wouldnt be able to be as strong as it is now.
What others should know: I bought this gun a week ago and noticed how hard it was to pump when I first took it out of the box. In the first day my arm was sore from pumping but I kept on using it throughout the week and it became easier on me. You learn new ways to position it so it becomes easier to pump and your arm gets stronger to make it easier also. I love this gun and think it is way worth the money. Its like they always say too, you get what you pay for and you get it good with this gun.

Things I liked: Powerful. Accurate. Durable. Serviceable. Scopeable. You can charge these up and wait all day for the shot you want to take.
Things I would have changed: The triggers are a little rough but they smooth up with use.
What others should know: You can service these without special tools. Crosman/Benjamin are happy to sell parts. These are somewhat easier to shoot accurately than the CO2 versions due to the greater length and mass out front. You can buy a lot of pellets for the $ you will save over guns that will not provide the Service and/or Satisfaction one of these will!
