Things I liked: Quality and feel of a solid well built air gun. VALUE
Things I would have changed: Nothing
What others should know: This gun has a classsic feel that can be passed down if you ever want to give it up. It also shoots well for plinkering and small pest control.

Things I liked: It has good ol' nostalgic Americana appeal --Accurate--Nice balance--Solid feel--Real wood grips--Plenty of power for an air pistol--It'll last forever if you do your part.
Things I would have changed: Here's my 2 cents worth--Rear sight is lacking fine adjustments--Fit of the wood grips was a little off--Grips could be just a tad thicker too--Smoother trigger, or even a trigger shoe option would help. Overall I wouldn't change much--I think its a nice little pistol & a good value.
What others should know: The first time I shot this pistol it was shooting really high, I adjusted the rear sight (that screw sure is long) and all was fine. There isn't really a windage adjustment, but mine was set nearly dead center from the factory and once it was dialed in and I did my part, three shot groups were always touching and there were even a few ragged holes thrown in for good measure. I was shooting at 10 yards and the temp. was in the mid 70's (nice for November). The CO2 pressure stayed consistent until the last few shots. I painted the front sight blade fluorescent orange, so I could see a bit better (I'm getting old) and added a trigger shoe that was sitting around , I was in luck that it fit great and it really helped to make the trigger pull smother and more even. I was using Crosman Premier 14.3gr hollow-points. No problems on my first outing with the EB22.

Things I liked: Excellent wood and metal construction, brass rust resistant rifled barrel, rust resistant trigger, slotted CO2 end cap, positive on/off safety. Barrel accepts a solid see through scope base made for Benjamine/Sheridan air guns. Pressure stays consistant right to the last two or three shots (about 35 full pressure shots)
Things I would have changed: CO2 end cap, the original Benjamine/Sheridan had a two piece threaded plug with the inside piece being an aluminum receptical that allowed the CO2 cartridge to snug up into the piercing pen with out turning, I'd also go back and reintroduce the 20 caliber.
What others should know: Excellent gun for the money, it's not in danger of ever being replaced because to accept anything less would be to be buying junk. Some of us in life will always prefer a good quality air gun - this just happens to be one of them.

Things I liked: Solid construction, 22 caliber, small and easy to handle, looks good
Things I would have changed: Needs alot more power, better sights, bottom rail for laser sights greatly needed
What others should know: This is a pistol for target shooting mostly. It lacks the power regardless of what others have said to hunt anything bigger than a small bird, weak. Don't buy this pistol if you are thinking you are going to hunt anything bigger than a bird at close range it lacks the power for anything bigger. When you hear people claim that their airgun penetrates so deep into wood you need to understand the different wood types to be accurate. Soft pressed wood this pistol goes through when it is a quarter of inch thick. Pressed hard wood you can forget it, pellets just ricochete, protective eyeware is highly recommended when target shooting. Overall good for plinking and mouse hunting at close range.
