i bought this gun today. it works great it said on the owners manual that it was going to be noisy and off target till you put at least 100 pellets threw it. when i shot it it was not loud and after sighting it in with 10 shot i put three shots in a bottle cap from 40 yards it is a great gun. but there is two things it would fix. i would put a better scope and the first time i cocked it was really hard but then easy after a few times of cocking it
i purchased this rifle 6 months ago and its still going strong. after about 200 rounds it "broke in" and has been shooting nickle size groups at 50 yards. i highly recommend the Benjamin discovery .22 lead hunting pellets they are a little more expensive but worth every penny.
I love these guns, but you need to know a few things to fix to get the most out of them. Mine had the black paint overspray inside the front of the barrel. It needs to be removed with a Q tip and solvent to get the best accuracy. If you like to do your own gun work, there are instructions on internet airgun forums to make the gun much easier to pump. I did the one that changes the one heavy valve spring to a two spring set with a lighter inlet valve spring. This is so simple it should be done at ... the factory. Has the same power with a lot less effort to pump.
Brand new purchase of this Benjamin 392 and what a good value. One of the most reliable and accurate multi-pump air rifles made. I have a crosman 140 manufactured in 1968, same basic design as the Benjamin 392, and it fires like a special forces trooper. The 392 does the same, small sight adjustment and I am firing dime sized groups at 10 meters open handed. Great shooter and sure to be firing hard as nails forty years from now, just like its older brother the crosman 140. Great price from ... Academy Sports. Buy one now and enjoy!
This is the sixth, seventh, and eight Red Ryder purchased for the latest three grandkids born this year. I grew up learning about how to respect and safely handle a firearm with the Daisy my parents gave me. I passed that legacy on to my kids and now to my eight grandkids boys and girls alike. Daisy is a great company with great products and Academy provided the most value for the dollar.
Every kid should have a red ryder. Probably the longest lasting bb gun ever.
very pleased when i recieved this pellet rifle. the rifle held nicely in my shooting position and looks very good. once I sighted in the scope the rifle was dead on with plenty of power for what I wanted.. this was a great buy and i'm very pleased..thank you!
Purchased about a month ago, about 300 BBs and 100 pellets have gone through it. With BBs, it's not super accurate using either open sights or the provided scope, but at 10 yards, the grouping is still less than 1.5" in diameter with BBs and 1" with pellets. The scope works well for what it is, considering it came with the rifle, but really there is no need to upgrade it until it breaks, since the rifle itself can't keep up with a higher quality scope. For plinking, this thing can't be beat. ... 5 pumps is really all you need for back-yard can-shooting. For those starting out, start here. It's a good jump-off point as well as a fun little 'toy' to keep around when you get something more serious for varmint. I enjoy it a lot. By the way: Acadamy Online rocks!
The Daisy Model 1998 in pink is the same as the Daisy Model 1938B. Except for the pink stock and forgrip, its a Red Ryder. I can not give it five stars because it shoots to the left(about 2 inches at 10 yards). I understand this is not uncommon with this design.
We bought this for our 6 year old and she LOVES it! It is a little big for her but she has gotten use to it. Wonderful product.
Wanted a .22 pellet rifle so I finally got this one. I love it! Sighted in without the scope in no time at 30 yards. Then I had a 4x32AO scope I purchased at Academy for $29 and had it sighted in within a short time. This is a hard hitting pellet and requires a bit of strength to cock. Not for children. Trigger has a long trigger pull, didnt stop me from getting 5 pigeons from about 25-35 yards. Academy price matched this from an online vendor so I got it for $99. Am thrilled with this and ... looking to buy my next gun! I dont think you will be sorry.
Gun arrived on time in good condition. I have fired about 100 rounds and it is very accurate. The scope was easy to zero in. It takes a lot of strength to cock the barrel, not a child's rifle. It's a great rifle for hunting small animals, birds and rodents.
If your semi serious about shooting small game this thing is amazingly accurate. 35 yards out 4 out of 5 times I can put the pellet through the same hole. Which I could not stand the break barrels missing and being slightly off everytime. I have the gun paired with a nice Nikon scope. The .22 is a severe round that will put any squirrel down instanstly. Also the gun is very light. It is a loud so if you live in a tight neighborhood then this gun would not be for you UNLESS you get the tko ... surpressor like I did. It was only 50 bucks and it's a great quality item and makes the gun quite enough to shoot in the backyard with neighbors. If you don't want to deal with that then get the Maurder but it does not come with pump. I can get about 25-30 shot out the gun before having to repump.
I ordered this rifle because some review said it was easy to pump. So I did but I am in a wheelchair paralyzed from my chest and could not pump it after 1000 lb. even my sister could not pump it with out trimbeling. So I returned it with no question asked. Other then that it was a great looking rifle held the 1000 lb of air with no problem
This is my first gas piston gun shoots a lot smoother than my springer(Beemen rs 2) consistant groups at 30 ft. The scope is worthless (bad parralax problem) Wish they could change the package deal to allow to buy scope up grade with orginal purchase rather than getting something that is equivalent to a painted toilet paper tube . The gun shoots smooth cocks easy trigger is crisp and not sloppy(no side to side wiggle) fun to shoot in back yard CHEAP to shoot bought it to practice marksmanship ... for hunting and put the hurt on problem squirrels
Have not tried other pellets but the cheap ones not as accurate as expected, could not group at all
It is a copy of a real AR15 , perfect for kids and adults
I bought 2 G-Force rifles, one in December of 2015 and another in April of 2016. These are great little guns. They are easy to cock, even for us senior citizens. I put a BSA 3-9 x 40 scope on one, and a Bushnell Trophy Red Dot sight on the other. These guns are very accurate using JSB pellets and H&N Match Rifle pellets. Even though these are considered as youth rifles, the length of pull is okay for adults as well.
Ive owned this rifle about a month and im pretty impressed! Its been years since ive shot a pellet gun and decided to get one to shoot with my son. This one was a lil too big for him so I got him a youth sized rifle. Ive only got it sighted to 30yrds and its pretty accurate at shooting a 3 inch target. Im sure ill get better cuz im still a lil shaky when I shoot. Ive read complaints about the sight but I think the sight is decent for what youre paying for. After around 80 shots this rifle starts ... breaking in and shoots well so dont get frustrated with the accuracy in the beginning.
I bought this a few days ago and I'm glad I did! With all these videos about people harvesting hogs with their air rifles I thought I'd give it a shot. I took it out this morning 10-13-16 and made a 12 yard headshot on a South Texas Javalina. Dropped him in his tracks. I am using the 14.3gr Crossman Premier Hollowpoints. They chronoed at 711fps out of my rifle. That's plenty and it got the job done.
Very nice rifle, trigger job a must, very good power, scope is average but satisfactory.
I bought mine and I cleaned the barrel before started using the air rifle. It took me around 300 pellets to break it down. The great thing is that I can use it on my backyard for practice. The best 5 shoot group of pellets during my shooting tests are: 1) H&N Terminator Hollow point 16.36 grains, Bullseye at 20yds. 2) JSB 15.86 grains Match Exact Jumbo Diablo at 30yds hitting the Bullseye. This air rifle has a Velocity1100 FPS fps for that speed it needs a heavier pellets to work at his best for ... long distance shots on target. It's a great air rifle for the money. Just keep the barrel clean after shooting.
I have fired about 1000 rounds thru my Benjamin Steel Eagle .22 Caliber Air Rifle in the past month or so at 10, 15 and 30 yards (not Meters) off a solid rest. I could never get better than 2 - 3 inch grouping. I was shooting into a slight wind and at times about a 15 degree wind from the left. These winds didn't seem to effect the shot at these distances. However the placement of each shot was very random and never a consistent tight group. They were pretty much all over the place within a 2 ... -3 inch circle. I have a .177 cal pump - up and a .177 cal single pump that shoots tighter groups at even farther distances that came with a price tag under $100. This rifle is a hard hitter and will definitely kill small game if you can get em close and get a good hit. If you are into precision shooting as in match shooting I would not recommend this rifle even for a beginner. You will be disappointed in that effort. The CenterPoint scope that came on it is Ok for an air rifle at close distances but I would never put it on anything else, not even a .22 rim fire. The only reason I bought it was to have a quiet and hard hitting air rifle for small game which this is, but I will be playing with different rounds to try and find something a little more accurate and already ordered a better scope. If the racket of a .22 rim fire is not an issue then buy a .22 rim fire rifle and be done with it.
Very impressed, rifle sighted in within 10 shots at 25 yards, hitting inside a 1" circle every time, with an occasional flyer, powerful, I took this rifle hunting and killed four squirrels and two rabbits with one shot each, some shots at 40 plus yards the first day I bought it.This is not a toy. You can't go wrong with this rifle for the price.$79.99 @ academy.( only thing I will do is upgrade scope later)
Definitely not a toy it is more powerfull than i thought it would be and i am really happy with it although i thought it would be quieter
My wife got me this rifle for Christmas about 4 yrs ago. I have shot over 2000 lead pellets since then with out any problems. I mostly just target practice with it but it is powerful enough to take care of pest up to a raccoon. My grandkids love to shoot water bottles and coke cans filled with water. They break open with great force keeping them entertained.
I like the weight of this rifle and how easily the scope is to sight-in.
After a bit of research, decided on this as a target and pest rifle. Liked the FPS rating and the 3-year warranty (better than any others I saw). Need to tweak the scope a little but so far, so good. Thankful for the muzzle silencer because this little beast is still pretty loud!
Overall I was pleased with the gun, but the initial sighting in was difficult. The scope mount system wasn't well thought out. The mount needs to be to a rail and not hard cut into the body. This caused misalignment of the scope such that I had to adjust the elevation to the scope's limit before I was near center target. Finally got to center, but the adjustment is barely two threads engaged. The best thing is it held a tight pattern.
I've had this rifle for about a year and after a good break in , it is very accurate , quiet and packs a wallop , trigger on mine loosened up after a few hundred rounds and the scope has been fine but I am switching to a 3-9 X 40 Simmons I have collecting dust - just to help with more close in situations , i paid a ton more for mine so if you are on the bubble about purchasing - go for it and put some pests to rest or some bunnies in your tummy ( had to ) , again great gun from a great company . ... Oh and I liked it so much I have the .177 and am thinking about the .25 just to round out my toys .
Good rifle for the money. Very precise and god quality on the rifle but the scope is rubbish. I fixed the trigger and got new scope and mounts so it's now a sweetheart. Hits every time even at 50 yards. Just keep in mind the killer recoil when you change your scope. It has to be for a brake barrel air rifle. Or it will brake easily.
Nice power and pretty quiet. Would definitely recommend
And i must say it's a stout little pellet rifle! it has more then enough power to deal with pests and was very close on the scope right out of the box.i didn't have high expectations for such a cheap scope but was i was genuinely surprised with the clarity and eye relief it has. so far it performs flawlessly. it is a little longer over all than i like and could be more quiet, but for 99 bucks i'm happy with it.
Purchased for Christmas. It works well. It is noisier than I thought it would be.
