Accuracy is horrible
The first round that I fired went supersonic and made a very loud crack. All subsequent rounds were normal. I am shooting premium match grade Crosman pellets which are heavy. I started sightings in at 10 yards then moved back to 25 yards. Groups were nine existent, and I was chasing my tail in trying to zero it. I got my Crossman springer with 4 power scope and was shooting less than 0.5 inch groups at 25 yards. The Benjamin was lucky to achieve a 6 inch group at the same distance in the same conditions side by side with the Springer. I have yet to shoot 100 rounds through it yet, so I am hopeful it will settle in to an acceptable accuracy; however, I have no evidence that it will have acceptable accuracy. If it does not, I am sending it back.
One thing that I am very pleased with is the two stage trigger right out of the box compared to the Springer counterpart. This is the main reason I got this rifle, and with this I am well pleased. If the accuracy settles in to an acceptable level, I will come back and give this rifle 5 stars. But if it does not settle in, I will have to reduce this to 1 star. For me it is all about the accuracy. A rifle that can only group at 4 to 6 inches at 25 yards is worthless for any application. We will see.
Nice looking gun but accuracy sucks!!!!!

Well, Crosman had them on sale for 50% off, free Destroyer pellets and free shipping! "OK I said, they're cheap enough, maybe I'll risk it". The "free" shipping was $2.50, probably for the pellets which were shipped in a separate box. The box said "Made in USA with some foreign components". BONUS! I'm helping to keep SOME jobs here in the States!
The scope mounted easily and the one piece mount seems secure. Zeroing after boresighting with a laser boresighter took about 4 groups of shots. I find the trigger smooth, with a little bit of creep but I've had a lot worse.
Now, the day that I'm doing this is a little on the windy side but with this rifle, you wouldn't know it. On the instruction sheet, I had read "There may be up to a 100 shot break-in period. During this period accuracy may be inconsistent and your gun may seem loud. This will improve as the nitro gas piston breaks in." In my experience with this rifle, I would say if this indeed is true, I'm in for a "wicked sweet" air rifle! With the aforementioned wind, I've been "ventilating" soda cans but if you hold this guy right, EVERY SHOT is in the can at 25 meters!
I can't wait for a calm day so I can see how it really groups.
So far in my humble opinion, you can't go wrong buying this air rifle.
Ive had this gun for about a month and Ive taken out a number of small game with it.
Great,accurate,reliable and quiet.
