The Steel Eagle is a breakbarrel with “hunting airgun” written all over it. Bearing the name of famed professional hunter and big game outfitter Jim Shockey, this airgun is destined for greatness on the range or trail. Built to hunt, the Steel Eagle features integrated sling mounts and an all-weather stock for carrying in all seasons. The newly added integrated sound-suppression system will ensure you can take quiet follow up shots while in the field.

With Crosman’s Nitro Piston 2 Technology this rifle will really send those pellets screaming downrange! The Eagle can send .177 alloy rounds to your target at 1400fps (1200 in lead) and deliver 23 fpe when it gets there (26 fpe in .22). With so much power, the Steel Eagle always hits fast and hard—ideal for small game and trigger time at the range. Simply mount your included 3-9x32mm CenterPoint scope to the Weaver/Picatinny rail, and get ready to blast away!

Steel Eagle .22
Owned this rifle for about a year now. Put about 10-15 thousand rounds through it. Needs no maintenance, run a bore snake through it when changing pellet brands. Dropped it several times didnt do a thing, gun is solid. The noise and cocking effort decreases significantly after 2-3k rounds (yes it takes that many) Love the weaver rail. Mine likes the JSB 14-18 grain an Crosman magnum an Hollowpoint 14.3gr, also Benjamin pcp 14.3 hollowpoints basically anything domed shape. Sadly like most benjamins this comes with no open sights. I miss shooting this thing, its just I can no longer afford replacing scope after scope. Ive yet to see a good quality scope that can take a beating from these break barrel airguns. Just some advice for anyone new to this if you plan on buying anything with a spring or gas piston make sure it has open sights/iron sights.
ProsSolid build, awesome silencer (easy to clean). Tack driver hits hard. Equipped with swivels for a sling. Weaver rail.
ConsNo open sights. Heavy trigger. Hard buttpad. Barrel droop is amazing.
Best UsesHunting 15-60 yard kills no problem. Plinking, target practice .

Great build quality and accurate
I bought this air rifle about 6 months ago from Cabela's. The build quality is very nice and sturdy. A little on the heavy side but very stable. I do recommend using a different scope because the one it comes with isn't the best quality and I found it little harder to zero in. My favorite feature is how it shoots so quiet compared to my other air rifles. Great for living with only 1 acre and with neighbors around.
ProsSturdy and well made gun. Shoots and accurate and packs a punch also surprisingly quiet.
ConsBad scope and a little hard to cock. Trigger wasn't the best
Best UsesSmall game hunting, Target shooting

Not the old Benjamin
I bought this Steel Eagle Benjamin for two reasons, #1 Because I used to own a Crosman/Benjamin years ago as a kid, and it was a mainstay airgun throughout my childhood before the firearm stage, and I figured the new Steel eagle would be as dependable, well made and accurate as my old childhood airgun. 2nd reason was I figured if a well known hunter as Jim Shockey endorsed this Eagle with his name it would have to be a good airgun. Well the one I got was a disaster! Right out of the box, I noticed a cracked up receiver but end, then I noticed the barrel had a crack in the critical location where it screws into the receiver. It did not stop at that, I installed the scope to find this gun had a drastically drooped barrel unable to adjust the scope low enough for point of impact. Grouping was awful at only 20 yards printing all over a paper plate while shooting from a bench. After 230 Crosman premier dome pellets the gun was no closer to consistency in any group smaller that 3 inches. I contacted Crosman/Benjamin and spoke to a rep, he sent me a new receiver butt piece to replace the damaged one, but indicated the gun would need to be sent back for a replacement barrel and to check the barrel droop situation. At this point I was not happy so contacted Airgun Depot and without further hassel was issued a return postal label, and when they received the gun, I was awarded a full refund. I do not recommend the Jim Shockey Steel Eagle, but do highly recommend buyers to shop with Airgun Depot, they are the top retailers in my book and care about their customers.
ProsThe gun barrel cocking action was smooth and easy. The gun was nice looking and comfortable to hold with good balance.
ConsNot well made, cheap plastic parts, not accurate, not at all as powerful as claims by factory. The barrels should be checked at the factory for barrel droop.

Very pleased until power dropped off
This gun was and still is very accurate.. TRouble is they over-rated the power and I was getting about 900 FPS for first couple hundred shots.. I noticed the power had dropped off and so I did another chrony test and with the 14.3 premiers I got a low of 742 and a high of 752... and 698 with the H&N terminators 16,36grains.. that is substantially lower than normal.. Still shoots incredibly accurate..
Prosaccurate shooter
Consdoesn't live up to power hype.

Great gun!
Being a beginner, i have bought a few air rifles.. this Steel Eagle was 3rd gun... come out of the box is pleasure to shoot... i ditched the scope and added a Hammers mildont and i am hitting nice groups at 25 yards... the feel of the gun is incredible... beats my NP2 Trail all day!
ProsGreat looking gun.. Great fill in my hands and very accurate with the new scope...
ConsDitch the scope...

Great gun Chris Buccitelli
This gun is very well made. Some of the review's are so so. Very accurate and powerful , great balance. The review's are only 3-4 stars because of the trigger. Put the charlie the tuna CBR trigger in the gun and you will eliminate trigger jerk .Turns the gun into 1and a half pound trigger pull. You will shoot the bullseye out at 30 yards
ProsGreat stalk well balanced gun.
ConsJust have to put a charlie the tuna trigger in turns into a five star gun

Airgun Depot Sucks!
I'd have loved buying this air rifle from Airgun Depot, but their "policy" of not price matching (which they then changed after I'd already bought from Cabela's) means I bought the gun elsewhere. We're talking $200 vs $150 and they expected me to just eat the difference. Will NEVER do business with Airgun Depot again! Having said that, the gun is great so far ~50 rounds through it, works fine, easy to zero, the glass could be better, but at this price I'm not complaining at all.
ProsI bought the gun I wanted.
ConsI had the misfortune of dealing with Airgun Depot. Have i mentioned that they suck?!?

Easy to use and accurate shooter
I love this rifle. My 9yr old son shoots it well and so do I. It is accurate in our tests out to 30 yrs - 1-2inch groups at 30yds from prone position. Moderate to low noise and well-balanced. Have already used for hunting - raccoons have no chance. A nicer scope would make it a 5-star, but for the price, it is very good quality. I would get another.
ProsAccurate, quiet, well-balanced. Scope holds zero. Powerful.
ConsTrigger pull is stiff. Scope not very adjustable. Break action is stiff.

Good gun!
It's a pretty good gun out of the box although the scope isn't the best. We should all know that anyway because most air gun scopes are crap. I would really like it if it had open sites too. When I first shot it it was pretty accurate. I shot 5 times at 40 yards and had a 1 inch grouping. I have heard though that the piston breaks so I'm always cautious.
ProsIt looks very neat and cool. Very quick gun.
ConsThere is no open sites so if u don't want that scope u will have to buy a new one without the choice of open sites.

Good value for the price.
Just took delivery of the .22 Steel Eagle 2 days ago. Fired about 200 rounds through it after swabbing out the barrel. I know there is a break in period, it performed beyond my expectations at 15 yards. After I get to know the rifle I'm sure it will become a favorite.
ProsRight out of the box it was pretty accurate, no problem with "fliers" that weren't my fault. After a few dozen rounds were fired, it was noticeably quieter. Accuracy seems pretty consistent. All in all I'm quite happy with this rifle. I'd recommend it to a friend. Love the stock for the most part...the forearm would be a bit better if the lower portion would be a bit more tapered in.......
ConsI think that the scope was OK...it's satisfactory, but I wouldn't call it junk as some do. I do plan to upgrade at some point though. My opinion, the trigger is the weakest point on this piece. I'm sure with an upgraded trigger that the Steele Eagle .22 would be a better gun in this price range.

mixed opinions
This is my second Steel Eagle. First one scope base was epoxied trigger pull was ridiculous couldn't achieve accuracy. Second and current one I have now scope base is soldered on (better). Trigger pull is still long, I've put about 400 pellets through it and now the cap at the rear of the rifle is coming lose and leaving a gap between piston housing and stock. I imagine its from cocking the gun.. Accuracy and power from this gun is really good. I'll save you time if you buy this air rifle buy the H&N 14.66 FTT 5.54mm head. No joke shooting cans at 80yrds with it. Golf balls off of tees at 40yrds. Sad enough to say I am returning this gun as well due to parts starting to fail come lose
ProsAccuracy. With the right pellets.
ConsVery hold sensitive. Parts get lose after short use. Trigger pull way to long..

Heavy trigger, decent shooter
This was my third NP2 (and the only one I've kept). The other two were the normal stock, one wood, one synth, and they both had their own problems. This one however, arrived without rust or blemishes. I really like the stock much, much better than the regular Trail stock. Power ranks in right around 21-22fpe with 14-20 grain pellets. Accuracy is decent, but difficult to achieve due to the very heavy trigger pull. I ended up putting a lighter spring on the trigger, and now it will not reset on a balk pull - I MUST fire it once I start pulling, but it took the pull from 6-7lbs down to around 3, but there is still some stiffness on stage 2 that I hope smooths out with time and use. It is actually a little quieter than my R9 .177, while providing more power. Overall a decent gun, for the money.
ProsPower - 22fpe in a quiet spring gun Weight - it's far lighter than my marauder! Weaver base is a good idea for magnum springers to limit slippage
ConsHeavy trigger makes consistent accuracy difficult Finish is not the best Included scope never made it out of the box - why bother wasting money on including these crappy thing?

Love It First Sight
This is one manly shooting rifle. Love the synthetic stock with the soft inserts. Very accurate and really quiet for a break barrel. I really love this stock so much more compare to the original Benjamin stock. And I LOVE,LOVE, LOVE Airgun depot. There is no company like Airgun Depot. Shipping is cheap and I love the discount coupons. 2nd day shipping for 20 bucks is excellent. My very first purchase was a disaster but I decide give them a second chance and I really love it. I use to buy from Pyramdy Air but not any more. Pyramdy Air really have great customer service but their shipping sucks.
ProsVery accurate and quiet. Love the synthetic stock with the soft inserts . And did I mention I love Airgun Depot for their coupons and less expensive shipping cost. Go get one u won't regret it.
ConsOnly concern is the scope. Hopefully it'll hold together from the harsh kick.
