    I didn't like this air rifle that much

    By Brendan. Coaster

    2014-09-15 15:41:02
    Because the stock the adjustable stock It feels like there's no use for it but I like the that its name after Jim Shockley and and colour is cool and the inserts . Well overall noise is low you can take that second kill shot I love the nitro piston tec. It's just the best power format for small game hunting and even in winter. But I do not recommend this gun it's too LONG.

    Legacy

    By Ben

    2014-07-18 11:00:30
    Hello all,

    I only have about 600 pellets through this thing, but thus far, I'm really enjoying it. I got the .22 Genesis, which is the same exact rifle as the Legacy, but without the Shockey logo. It's fast, quiet, and stable. The trigger sucks, but that's to be expected from an air rifle that does 750-ish with 14.3 grain lead pellets for under $200. The scope is crap, but it's a package scope. Get a package rifle form Remington, Ruger, Benjamin, Weatherby, or Savage etc. in center-fire, rimfire, or air-power, and you'll get a crap scope. If they sold this rifle for $30 cheaper without the scope, I would have bought that one. The review on the rifle is positive, and I'll be shooting this thing while my .177 RWS 34 gets rebuilt. I'll probably be shooting it after the 34 is rebuilt. It's a hammer, where the RWS is a scalpel. The accuracy is acceptable with 1" groups from 30 yards. It's not a match-winner, but it lays ground squirrels flat like a lightning bolt.

    DO NOT BUY THIS GUN

    By Anonymous

    2014-07-07 12:16:49
    Utter disappointment. I like everything about the gun except what really matters...ACCURACY. This gun will not group even at 10 yards no matter what you do. I exchanged the first one I bought thinking I may have got a lemon... the second one was just as bad if not worse. I found that both guns where not properly assembled and had a loose "barrel pivot bolt" with no loctite. Thinking this might be the problem I took the gun apart and tightened the bolt (something you should never imo have to do to a brand new 300+ dollar gun) but the gun will still not group. I also noticed the scope has to be at almost maximum adjustment for elevation to get the pellets anywhere near the crosshairs. Knowing that this may be causing the reticile to shift due to low pressure on the adjustment spring I then tried shimming the scope. This allowed me to get the shots near the crosshairs with the elevation adjustment in the middle of its range....no improvement to accuracy. Put over a full 500 count tin of Crossman premier hallow point pellets through it and still no accuracy. I was under the impression this gun would be better then my old Beeman springer, seeing as its brand new, nitro piston not to mention over double the price however with the old beeman I can hit the bull within 3 or 4 shots. I've not once hit a bull with this gun and I've shot it over 500 times and there is absolutely no consistency to the groupings, the pellets will land anywhere except where your aiming. I really really wanted this gun to perform but it's nothing but a source of constant frustration and disappointment. Looking online you will see that most reviews will tell you the same thing. Don't waste your time and money buying/ trying to fix this gun. NOT RECOMMEND. For half the price you can get a much better gun. Sure it might not come with as nice a scope or a nitro piston but I can guarantee it will group better then this useless piece of plastic. Crossman should be ashamed to have let this product make it out their door. I'm going to contact Crossman, but if all they offer is a replacement I don't see the point after experiencing the same things with two separate guns.

    poor accuracy/consistency

    By DBT

    2014-05-12 08:44:05
    After 3 to 400 shots or more this gun still does not group better than 4 or 5 inches at as little 20 yards consistently. There have been better groups, but they never hold. After trying different holds, different pellets, brands weights designs, the performance remains the same. It is a fancy looking toy at best, not a small game getter. I'm not trying to be overly critical or sarcastic. Just honest about my opinion. I have a CO2 gun from Crosman's custom shop that is deadly and a joy to shoot. I believe in their product and hope they stand behind this one as well. It is shipping out to the warranty center today. I would not recommend this gun to anyone as of this moment.

    awesome scope and power, poor accuracy

    By Anonymous

    The scope is wonderful on this thing. Clear, bright, and a very good magnification. The accuracy is lacking though. This is a plinking gun more than a hunting one but still will do the job. If it was more accurate it has the power to kill a rabbit.

    Legacy Jim Shockey signature series .22 - poor accuracy

    By GPG

    2014-03-09 19:31:24
    I have also found very poor accuracy. Okay it is quiet, but if you cannot hit the target, it really does not matter.
    The changing the scope gets a few rounds on the centre, then they are out again and more adjustments. The barrel also is not consistent when closed. There is a high and a low movement. The sighting does different when in either position. Needless to say, ensuring that this is constant after every shot is a pain.
    I will be contacting the seller about repair or replacement.
    After 30 years of enjoying my 760, I expected this gun would out-perform it. Other than more power, it does not shoot any better than my old, non-rifled gun.
    Hopefully they gun improve to my liking - if so, I will re-rate. Until then, I cannot recommend.

    Benjamin Legacy UPDATE

    By Conway

    2014-02-01 18:58:49
    This gun is a piece of poop. Terrible plastic, crappy accuracy, and my new Benjamin trail was quieter out of box than the legacy with at least 1,000 rounds through it. I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS GUN TO ANY ONE. Get a Benjamin Trail or a save up a 100 more dollars and get a Benjamin Discovery PCP rifle.

    Benjamin Legacy (.22)

    By Conway

    2014-01-20 19:55:45
    The Benjamin Legacy is a great and quiet rifle.It is accurate within 25 yards and would be great for anything from a sparrow to a raccoon.Although it is a great gun it could do better with accuracy.If you want a more accurate break barrel but with more noise, go with the Trail NP or Venom.

    Legacy Jim Shockey signature series .22

    By Anonymous

    2013-11-30 18:31:20
    I am experienced in airgun shooting and even with an artillery hold this gun will not group. It does best with heavy pellets(tested five different pellets) but will not group within 3" at 50 feet. The trigger is not good being heavy and long. Trigger adjustments do not help much. I plan on returning it to Crosman for repair or replacement.
    I have had good experience with other Crosman products and hope they will make this right.

    Great looking gun and hits hard. I've tried 4 types of pellets and can't get any better than 3 inch groups at 25 yards

    Deadly

    By Whyname

    2013-08-20 23:20:05
    This is a great air rifle, all day long I can shot in it the same half inch or smaller group. At 25 to 40 yards it hits hard, one shot one squirrel!! I have not tried to go out any more than 40 yard. I am every happy! Only one issue, the oval plastic piece on the bottom of the grip came off/out. Just needed a little glue and it was fixed. It does not have a sling post on the front it, has a loop of sorts, makes it hard to mount it to a tri-pod.

    Wish Crosman sold a Bi or Tri-pod that I could mount to it.

    By David

    2013-08-17 01:03:49
    Really a great gun! It appears this "Legacy-Benjamin" is better than the two Gamo's (one .177 and one .22) I have. The CenterPoint 3-9x40mm scope also much better and zeroing easier than the one came with Gamo's. Easy to feel the difference - feeling from 21 foot pounds of energy at 20 yards.
