Answer:I can't answer that question right now. I have been breaking my gun in at about 20 yds. I have about 100 shots through it and it is dead on at that distance. I'm shooting Crosmans 10.4gram pellets and they are accurate for now. I gave the gun a good cleaning and put blue loctite on all the scope screws after about 50 shots and the gun is holding a perfect pattern(about a 1/4 ") right now. The gun has plenty of power and I'm sure it will reach quite a ways out after the breakin period !
By Chevota from CA on August 1, 2012
Answer:Too many variables, the main question being what do you consider accurate? For example 1" or 4"? and what power to you consider adequate on impact? There are programs available for free online that can tell you your trajectory including pellet drop, and power at that distance. I can send you some, just write me at chevota at hotmail and put "Airgun" in the subject. This goes for anyone who wants the programs.

Answer:You can probably use the rings that come with your gun. I don't think the scope you are thinking about installing will require new rings. I would mount the Center Point scope and try it before you purchase a new scope because I think you will be pleasantly surprised. It is a quality scope designed for this air rifle !
By Conor from Sunnyside, WA on February 8, 2012
Answer:The rings that came on this scope will work.....but the size you need if you want two pairs of rings, are high profile weaver mounts/rings.

Answer:The rings that come with the gun will work.
By Chevota from CA on August 1, 2012
Answer:I agree with the others, the oem rings will probably fit, plus your rail is higher than normal rails so you have that added height. I always buy the lowest possible rings I can find because it's better to have the scope as close to the barrel as possible, plus it looks better. I think it's cool looking to have the scope almost touching the gun, sometimes it's so tight I can't even get the scope cap on :) One gun I had was a teeny bit too close and touched the gun before the ring screws were tight, so I shimmed it to fit. The other option was the next size up rings which I tried and did avoid using. That scope btw was 50mm w/ the lager diameter adjustable objective using low height rings and a std cut into the receiver rail. Of course that's all my opinion, others prefer it differently such as the high see-thru rings for quick sighting, but if you use both eyes to find your target it works better than see-thru rings. It's not hard to get used to doing it that way. Fyi..... Good luck on it!

Answer:I have loved my pellet gun. It is a tack driver and inexpensive to shoot.
By darryl from waynesburg, PA on February 24, 2012
Answer:Hey Joe, So far I am very pleased with this air rifle. If you read my first review it is all in there and still holds true at this time. Rifle is very very accurate,hard hitting and a real pleasure to shoot. Air Gun Depot had to best price I could find and fast shipping, easy to deal with. I did notice that mine likes pellets that have a head size of 4.49 or 4.50, meaning that they insert into the breach with little if any effort. This is a rifle,meaning it feels and shoots more like a quality built .22 rifle. I thing that most people will be please with this gun so long as they are willing to put a little time into working with it. If you just want a plinker that is only so so in accuracy and power and do not what to put some time into it, then I would suggest a lower priced air rifle. A little time,effort and money and this thing will realy be at the top of its game, at a fraction of what high priced guns cost.
By Conor from Sunnyside, WA on February 25, 2012
Answer:It is a great gun for hunting, and long range shooting, but the .22 would be better IMO, the .22 pellet retains more energy and knocks down stuff harder......177 kinda just does a pass through.

Answer:At first, I was speculating about purchasing the rifle. But after reading articles and reviews, I decided to go ahead and purchase it. I was contemplating of purchasing from another location, but after looking around, I found the exact one at a great price at Airgun Depot. I ordered it on Monday, expected to be in next week, but to my surprise, it came in on Thurs. After examination and mounting the scope on, all the thoughts of regrets and speculations had disappeared.
The rifle is built solid and sturdy, just how I liked it. I already owned a few air rifles so I had a few different types of pellets stocked. So I took it to a nearby field and set in the scope. I was surprised by the effortless of cocking the Nitro Piston. It was smoother and quieter than the traditional spring piston.
I set up oranges at 10, 20, and 30 yards. First I adjusted at 10 yards, after a few shots and adjustment, I knew the next one will hit it. Sure enough, the orange exploded when i pulled the trigger. The next shots on 20 and 30 yards was right on target. I've used all kind of pellets but, personally, the crossman premiers hollowpoint pellets was the best. It had penetration, accuracy, and speed combined. Although the heavier pellets has a slightly more penetration, it tends to drop and slows down more for long range. Its best for short distances.
Overall, I am very satisfied with the purchase. I have no regrets whatsoever since the purchase. All my friends that tried it said they loved it and was looking to get one. So I recommended I've shopped around and Airgun Depot had the best price and quick delivery. Indeed, this is not a toy gun and should be handle by an adult. So if you're looking for a well built, powerful, accurate air rifle, get the Benjamin, its worth it.
