Benjamin Pump Pistol (.22)
Very accurate and reliable pistol
This pistol is the most accurate air pistol I have ever shot. Mainly due to the long barrel low recoil and good trigger action.
The only work I had done on this pistol in the 8 years I have owned it was to countersink and replace the screw behind the grip. This would shred the skin between my thumb and finger when holding the pistol and pumping it.
Other than that its bomb proof
My HB22 is "sweet"!
HB22 - Still the best!

Definitely worth the price
Despite the long barrel, the gun is fairly well balanced. The multi pump funktion makes it very versatile.
Using and loading the gun is very easy. Pumping the gun is easier than I thought it would be. The safety features on this gun are perfect! Safe and yet not time consuming.
The HB22 is a diamond in the rough, out of the box. Around the holes, in the wood, there's some "chipping" as if the drill were pressed through the wood too fast. I had to return my first HB22 due to very large chips in the grip. I had to countersink the holes in the grip, on the HB22 I own now, to get the screws leveled with the grip.
The low-tech style of this gun is awesome, but fiber optic sights would have been a big plus, as would micrometric adjustment of the windage (elevation works fine).
The gun is very accurate, but you have to get used to the trigger. The trigger is heavy and rough. I personally wouldn't mind the trigger weight, if they had made it smoother.
The gun is a lot of fun to shoot, and has it's own charm. To me this gun is a good starting point. You can't fit a lot of accessories of the shelf, but that's not what you want to anyway with this gun. I'll just make minor improvements myself; try to smooth out the trigger and make some fiber optic sights. If I end up ruining the gun, I might just by a new HB22, cause I actually like it, even though I wish Crosman/Benjamin would've taken the time to get this gun perfect!
