The Browning Leverage Air Rifle has a lot to offer with traditional styling, rock-solid scope platform, fixed barrel, accurate and easy to cock. Just 28 lbs. of cocking effort, but you're still getting magnum hunting power. With so little effort, you can shoot all day, carry it in the woods (not too heavy, even with the scope!) and hunt or eliminate pests. Don't hunt? Shoot some targets, kill some tin cans, flips some spinners...the list is endless.

Good gun
Real firearm, powerful , accurate, very, very very, heavy. Did I mention it is heavy. In reading the manual I was informed, to oil this firearm I needed to remove the stock by removing three screws, which I did, and spent the next two hours putting the two pens back in that hold the safety that had fallen on to the floor. That was interesting but not fun. The gun got oiled and put together and it works. To cock the firearm requires a LOT of strength. To load, is difficult, l have never experienced a pellet gun this difficult to load. Once loaded a button must be pushed to release the cocking lever, which I personally have difficulty with. I would recommend this rifle only to strong, experienced people. I feel it's not for the inexperienced or beginner.
ProsShoots hard
ConsLet me list the ways. Heavy, hard to both cock and load, if you oil it ( witch it will need) one must be ever so careful to keep the barrel vertical, and watchful of the two pins witch hold the safety, trigger pull poor, Heavy .
Best UsesBench rest shooting.

Great $200 combo
This was my first air gun and first purchase from Airgun Depo. I was extremely pleased with their service but not so much with this rifle. I chose it for the name and the fact that it was underlever. It did not live up to my expectations so I exchanged it for Hammerli 850 and cannot be happier. Overall, it is a decent $200 combo. I knocked down one star for the poor trigger.
ProsWooden stock (if you like them), great value (with scope combo), powerful, fairly accurate.
ConsVery heavy, mediocre wood and metal finish, poor unadjustable trigger (lots of creep), heavy and loud recoil (for an air gun).

Much better than a break barrel
This is my second purchase from Airgun depot. This under lever Browning is far superior to the Gamo Bone Collector Whisper that I purchased for more money. It shoots tight groups, the scope is nice and it has "iron Sights (plastic)". I've read other reviews that talk about barrel droop but find that hard to believe because of the fixed barrel design. I've put over 500 pellets through it without a single problem. Highly recommend.
ProsEasy to cock Plenty powerful for squirrels Nice scope included Nice stock Consistent pellet groups
ConsLouder than a nitro piston On the heavy side

My favorite 12 gauge makes a premier .22 cal underlever
Easy cocking compared with break barrel and the factory scope has performed flawlessly thru about 70 shots.
ProsHandsome rifle with ease of loading, firing and scoring in the bullseye

Browning leverage .177
Received my leverage as promised it is everything all the reviews talked was a little crunchy for the first fifty rounds then smoothed out.i like the scope did not take long to site in.seems to hold zero although I only have 250 round through it love everything about the gun.

Browning Leverage vs. Benjamin NP Trail...No Contest!
I have had the Browning Leverage rifle from Air Gun Depot two days now and am VERY IMPRESSED! I had a Benjamin Nitro .22 for the last two years and was ready to give up air guns forever until I saw the reviews on this "under the radar" Browning rifle. The BLUF (Bottom LIne Up Front) is that the Benjamin is an absolute worthless piece of crap compared to the Browning. If I can't find someone who will take the Benjamin dog off my hands, it will be banished to the gun safe and never see the light of day again! Here's the basics: 1) Both are VERY heavy rifles and not for the weak in either cocking or carrying. The Benjamin comes with a sling and the Browning does not, which is the absolute only advantage the Benny has over the Brownie. 2) The Benjamin has no fixed sights and the scope is a piece of junk. The Browning has fixed sights which on first glance appear very appealing with the bright orange and green optic system. This is deceiving. See cons below. The Browning scope is TERRIFIC! I used the plastic shim that came with the scope to mount it to prevent barrel droop and it was perfectly effective right out of the gate. 3) Noise. Neither rifle makes much noise but the difference is that the Browning hits what you air at and the impact is a wallop. With the Benjamin you never know where the pellet is going and seldom hit anything you are aiming at. 4) Accuracy is unheard of with the Benjamin with any type of pellet (I tried seven different types and could finally keep the CPHP on a 8 X 10 piece of paper at 20 yards, making hits on small game a fluke more than a sure thing. The CPHP was the best pellet I found to feed the Benjamin and I was able to hit a barn on the broadside most of the time. 5) Accuracy with the Browning was immediate and phenomenal! Within 20 shots I had the scope sighted in and fired a six shot group from a bench rest at 20 yards that measured a spread of six tenths of an inch...yes...0,6 inch! And that was with the lowly CPHP. The Browning loved the Predator Polymags and JSB Jumbo Heavy. It even liked the Crow Magnum and H&N coppers, just not as well. None of these shot the same point of impact but the widest group was 1 3/4 inch at 20 yards with the Crow Magnum. 6) Consistency with the Browning was perfect! No flyers! You see it, you hit it. No guess work. The Benjamin is a fire and pray rifle with a flyer averaging every 5 or 6 shots. You can tell when you pull the trigger by the sound of the frequent flyers with the Benjamin and you might as well not even look at the target because your pellet has flown to the moon. 7) Trigger. The Benjamin is like a long slow root canal. The Browning is crisp and smooth in comparison. It breaks at the right time, every time. 8) Finish was nice with both rifles but the Browning clearly has the better wood. 9) Scope. Again no comparison. Much, much better with the Browning. I followed the previous review suggestions and used Locktite on all the screws and cleaned and oiled the Browning when it was received. It simply can't get any better so I don't foresee much of a break end period for the Browning. After two years of very bad shooting, I am still waiting for the Benjamin to break in...before I just break it over a telephone pole. 10) Price. I paid a LOT more for the Benjamin than I did for the Browning. Stupid me. Air Gun Depot was fast, informative, and Fed Ex tracking was dead on. The bonus coupon for a BOGO tin of pellets was a plus. I've already used it for two more tins of Predators. That's 400 rabbits, squirrels, crows, or whatever I shoot at because it's darn near impossible to miss with the Browning!
ProsIn three words on the Browning...Accuracy, accuracy, accuracy! The pros for the Benjamin...hmmm...the picture on the box was nice.
ConsMy one complaint with the Browning was with the fixed sights. The orange and green optics looked great and should have worked but did not. The sights are made of plastic and wobble and wiggle all over the place. It was impossible to get enough left correction. I simply removed the rear sights with a Phillips screw driver and put all my faith in the excellent scope. No one should but this rifle thinking they will use the fixed sights anyway. The scope will knock your socks off! There are far, far too many cons with the Benjamin to even begin listing. The greatest of which is that it appears impossible to shoot it straight.

So close to good, but...
I had to return it. Something about mine - the rubber gasket that rides in the cylinder and engages the cone breach where the pellet goes in was out of place. The cone must have grabbed it off center and sort of tore it and jumbled it up right where the air would move to the breach. I suppose that made air regulation very inconsistent or worse maybe air leakage. Anyways, I couldn't get good groups out of it. Could not consistently hit a soccer ball from about 100 feet, and I'm not that bad. It's a shame. I wanted to like it. It seems well made for the price point. The optics were shockingly good. A lot of good things about this rifle - but if it doesn't shoot... I'm tempted to try again on another example since others have had such success with it apparently. But also considering socking away more money to get a Discovery or RWS or waiting for the NP2. AirGun Depot was great throughout. No problems getting or returning.

Caveat Emptor
If something is on sale, there is a reason. The rifle shoots well enough but the open sights are garbage. The front sight assembly is plastic and it mounts using a light press fit onto the barrel. There is a set screw in the top of the front sight assembly, but it's useless and does absolutely nothing to lock the sight assembly in place. I could not sight the rifle in by adjusting the windage on the rear sight. I adjusted it to the far right, but the rifle still shot left. I had to twist the front sight on the barrel to sight it it. I don't know if the "fix" I used to sight in the rifle with the open sights will hold the adjustment, time will tell. I sent an email to Airgun Depot about the sight issue, but received no reply. The scope seems OK, but I could not use it due to barrel droop. I ordered a B Square, 1 Piece Adjustable Riser and when it arrives I will try to sight it in. I would buy a better rifle if I knew what I was getting from Browning. If you buy this rifle, expect to spend time and money correcting the deficiencies and don't expect any tech assistance from Airgun Depot. Spend another hundred bucks and buy a better rifle I gave it two stars because the rifle mechanism is satisfactory, but the cheap sights and excessive barrel droop ruin what could be a fine rifle.
ProsReasonable price
ConsMade in China always means quality issues. Scope droop is excessive and the open sights are junk

Best pellet gun under 200 period
I finally got around to sighting it in and with cheap Walmart cphp's this rifle shoots one ragged hole at 20 yards. I am nothing short of impressed. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a nice .22 caliber to add to their collection
ProsJonathan and finish. Not extremely hold sensitive. Comes with a very nice optic.
ConsHad to make shims for the scope to get it dialed in, but for the price it was just a minor inconvenience. The trigger has a lot of creep out of the box but gets better the more it is shot.

Very nice.
For less than $200 this under lever can't be beat. Shoots straight and groups nice when the person pulling the trigger cooperates.
ProsBuilt solid, easy to see sights,
ConsTakes some getting used to loading the pellet into the gun.

Good for hunting and shooting for fun!
Great deal for the money,the more I shoot it the more accurate it gets,had to put some metal shims in the rear scope cradle and pull out the rubber shim and dialed the scope in and it is way better with the metal shims.The only problem I have with it is that this gun needs an adjustable cheek piece since the scope is so high up or at least make it an option. All in all, a great gun for the money, one shot to the body or head and it easily kills a squirrel at 30 yards!
Proshits on target every time after break in, scope is a good one not junk like you get on some combo's.
ConsWish it had a adjustable cheek piece or maybe I can find a stock to fit the gun that has one.

Great Rifle, Some Issues
I received my .22 cal Browning Leverage air rifle June 3, 2013. The fit and finish is very good except for an unsightly knot on the stock which I am willing to live with. I am impressed with the raw power of this rifle. I blew right through the 1/2" plywood I was using to mount targets. Although the scope provided with this rifle provides a clear sight picture, my early efforts to sight in the scope were a bit frustrating. I was shooting at 20 yards, using good spring gun holding technique, but the results were inconsistent. Groups were always within 1 1/2" but just when I thought it is shooting a little left, it would start shooting a little right. I always made sure the stock screws and the scope mount screws were secure before shooting. I have now shot over 1,000 rounds and I have seen a marked improvement in accuracy, but there were some noteworthy obstacles along the way. The main complaint is that the leverage hinge-pin which connects the cocking lever to the spring carrier link worked loose and damaged the stock (in the slot). I take pride in the way I care for my gun and this disturbs me, but beyond the cosmetic aspect, this could be a safety issue. While I was investigating the problem, the pin actually fell out. If this had happened while cocking the gun, an injury could have occurred. The pin is a solid steel rod about 1/2" long with the ends hollowed out for flaring. In my gun, only one end got flared, allowing the pin to fall out under its own weight when the gun is tilted to one side. While breaking in this rifle, I was constantly contending with trigger pull inconsistencies. At the 1,000 shot mark, I broke down the gun to perform a normal maintenance lube job. When I removed the stock, to my surprise, several pins fell out of the trigger mechanism. Turns out that the pins are designed be held in place during use by the interior walls of the stock. Nothing wrong with this unless you lay the rifle on its side during disassemble like I did (don't make this mistake). With some difficulty, I was able to figure out where all of the pins belonged, but there was a problem. One of the pins was designed to retain the outer walls of the trigger assembly. This pin utilizes two "C" clips (one at each end). My rifle was missing one of these clips allowing the main trigger pivot pin to "float" at one end, creating the erratic trigger. After reassembling the rifle, she shoots like a dream. The trigger is now very smooth and predictable and my 20 yard shot groups are within inch using 22 cal JSB Diabolo Exact pellets. This is a very well engineered rifle, using high quality materials. The fit and finish is excellent. Too bad assembly quality control was not up to par on my rifle. If it was, I would rate the Browning 5 stars instead of 4 stars. In my opinion, the Browning Leverage Air Rifle is an exceptional value. The rifle is very powerful and accurate. The included scope presents a clear site picture and stays zeroed-in well (make sure the hardware remains tight). I would definitely recommend this rifle to others. The gun is a little on the heavy side and a little noisy but tolerable for my back yard shooting. Over all, I like this rifle very much.
ProsExcellent value, Very Powerful, Accurate (after break-in), Well Engineered, Good Fit & Finish, Quality Scope, Good Trigger (but not adjustable)
ConsHope accuracy improves with break in

Perfect for me
I did a lot of research before buying this gun. When AGD put it on sale for $170, I jumped on it. You will want to consider spending enough to get the free shipping, but you will not need to spend another $100 on a scope,mounts, and a trigger because the ones that come with this combo are great. See Rick Eutsler's video review of this gun at Everything he says about this gun is true including the need to shim the rear scope mount which he tells how to do on his "Take Aim" video. This is a top quality Chinese gun made by Xisco, also known as BAM (best airgun made). Browning does not put their name on junk. This is an outstanding value on a fixed barrel gun and, as usual, the buying experience from Airgun Depot was great. I have owned this guns for a couple of months and the more you shoot it the better it gets.
Prosaccurate easy to cock for the power scope and mounts low recoil fit and finish nice trigger (I like it better than quattro)
Consa little heavy no checkering on stock

A little hinkey at first, but then wala, this turns into a keeper
Takes some time to get use to push this, pull that, then loading the pellet blindly. Sounds like this could go bad, but after just a few shots this gun will not miss. The lack of recoil and comfort of the stock and this gun, will probably impress anyone with its effortless accuracy. Power seems too adequate for hunting small game. Best of all I have consistent performance from pellets of extreme difference in weight. Really surprised overall and the absolute best surprise was the price. This gun was offered by the folks at Airgun Depot. Way cool guys, do not know how they do this but this has become the norm and will aide in collection expansion.
ProsScope, I did not mention for most guns the included scope is a throw-away. However, this too is top notch and is more than enough scope to hunt or plink away.
ConsHard to find especially at this price. I suppose less plastic on the front sight assembly.
