    A great but DISCONTINUED classic

    By Anonymous

    The design of this classic CO2 pistol goes back nearly a century and has endured generations of upgrades and improvements while under the manufacture of the original Benjamin company, but Crosman has now decided to discontinue its production, as well as that of the HB22 and HB17 pump versions of this venerable airgun. Those who own one might do well to consider holding onto it for the sake of posterity as these are now collector's items. Someday, people might well reconsider the simple and rugged utility of these designs after the novelty of the current PCP craze has aged and the glow of novelty has worn off...

    i bought it from my grand Father when he did not want it i was a bit dispirited because it was a single shot but it gets a lot of rounds per co2 canister even with a broken seal (there must only be a crack in it) but it is accurate

    Disappointing Pistol

    By Disappointed

    2013-10-04 10:59:55
    I bought my pistol in March 2013 and it has been trouble from the outset. Initially it was wildly inaccurate, it wouldn't strike within 4 inches of the aiming point in any direction. I withdrew the bolt to examine the barrel and was disturbed to find that the rifling was almost nonexistent, 2/3rds of it was perfectly smooth. I contacted Crosman Europe who directed me to their agents in UK, A - I - S, who replaced the main body of the pistol. The pistol I received back from them was wonderfully accurate and so powerful, I could knock down field targets at 40 metres. It took a few shots and allowing an extra foot of elevation. My troubles weren't over however, the knib of the cam-plate that retains the bolt lug when it is in the locked position began to bend under the recoil and eventually fouled the bolt and finally broke. I replaced the cam-plate. The bolt lug which is a hardened steel screw that sits in a recess in the bolt began to loosen and foul the underside of the cam-plate cover. a consequence of this was the recess became worn into an oval shape and ceased to provide a secure support for the screw and it snapped. I replaced the screw but after a couple of CO2 capsules it snapped again. I replaced the bolt and screw and it snapped again after shooting just one capsule. It is back with A - I - S who tell me that they cannot find a cause of this problem and it must be my fault in not locking the bolt correctly. I can't agree, in my opinion the cocking effort of this particular pistol was very high causing the stress on the bolt lug and the subsequent deforming of its mounting hole. Yesterday I visited a gun dealers and tried the action on a new EB22 and found it to be much easier than my own. In the end I bought a Crosman 2300T which I am looking forward to siting in. By the way why do they cost twice as much here that they do Stateside?

    EB 22 cal

    Love the look and feel of this gun. Wood and steel (pot metal?). That said, I hate hate hate the rear sight. It will not adjust much for windage. I sent the first one back to Crosman after emailing them about it when new. They sent me another or the same, they didn't say. Same problem. Shoots to the left. I've seen several other people with this problem and no fix if you want open sights. I would give it a 5 star if not for that. It has lots of power for it's size and feels perfect in the hand. I wish Crosman would do something about those rear sights or offer a replacement in the store.

    Quality Handgun

    By Rick S

    2013-02-20 20:26:08
    I really like this gun. Comfortable wooden grip, shoots dead accurate, quality made in USA. Hits spot on every time. I do wish I had seen the HB22 before I bought this as I prefer the pump over the CO2. I'll save up and get the HB22 next time.

    Great pistol

    By Rick S

    This is a well balanced, powerful 22 pistol. It has lots of power and consistent accuracy. I've been shooting frozen plastic bottles of water and the Crosman destroyer pellets penetrate the outer plastic and lodge in the ice. Not bad for a pellet gun. The wood grips are really comfortable and the trigger has a short, consistent pull. Easily a close second favorite, just behind my Crosman 2240.
