20yrds. Brand new yeah. Used a crappy 30mm, 3x9x40. Simmons scope. Perched on a caldwell scorpion rifle rest. Gamo rockets & hp worked well. This will only get better as the barrel seasons. Golden once a btter scope is mounted. Ordered, on the way. Cant wait to see this this uni hole the targets at 20. This will be mo fun at 50 yards. Buy it beyatches.

Quiet, punchy, poppy.

None really. A little heavyish. Good heavy.

By MoseSeptember 23, 2021

I would suggest a good midrange scope for precise accuracy.

Everything (design, weight of rifle, quiet suppression, fps, accuracy, easy break barrell, stock/grip)

Equip with magazine for faster reloading on break barrel

I have the 177 version. It is a fantastic value for short, mid and long range shooting. Quality construction, ease of use, ergonomics, not pellet picky, quite, very powerful and accurate at all distances. I particularly prefer long distance shooting at 50, 100 and 100+ yards. Works great with Crosman 10.5's at under 50 yards. Works great with H&N Baracuda Match 10.65's at long distances even up to 150 yards. Make sure you fit it with a magnum power capable scope. Let's see how it does over years of use.....



By MikeJuly 9, 2021

VERY powerful and accurate once sighted in - even at longer ranges. I have killed pigeons (rats with feathers) perched in the tops of mature Douglas Fir trees at our house with one shot. You don't have to spend hundreds to thousands of dollars for a high pressure pump, but you can only load one pellet at a time. I currently have an open reflex sight and use Crosman hollow points.

Cocking the barrel gives you a good workout - especially if you miss and have to reload. The rifle could be a little lighter, and it has a little more recoil than a spring piston rifle.

By GeraldUSAApril 3, 2021 Verified Purchase

This rifle hits hard! I mean pulverizes pigeons hard!!!!!Well made, I’m happy with the one AIRGUN DEPOT sent me! Mounted a Center Point 6-20x50 which works very well with the rifle not to mention makes the gun look very aggressive! Overall couldn’t be any happier with the rifle and scope pair!

None! Nothing to report!

By KevinUSAMarch 20, 2021 Verified Purchase

Took me about ten shots to sight in with a Field and Stream scope and I am getting 1/2 inch groups at 35 yards.



By GregMarch 20, 2021

Buy something else this rifle would only make a good anchor for a trot line

looks good

Is NOT ACCURATE , tried scope that came with it, scatted shots replaced with known good scope same thing, have mounted upwards of a hundred scopes over the last 50+ years. tried the open sights, rear sight was cracked so I Super Glued it but the dang thing has 1/4 in movement. It is the rifle will not keep shots with in 6 " of each other, two types of pellets (dang expensive)

By MattUSAMarch 19, 2021 Verified Purchase

This Rifle is impressive, no disputing that! Right out of the box, with iron sights, I made a 100 yrd shot. The insane speed and power of this give it a definite edge! I let someone who owns a Whisper shoot it they said that this was quieter than theirs. Buyer take notice though, the scope is next to useless. The day after I put the scope that came with it on, I removed it and put one of my old scopes on and instantly could tell the difference. As far as ammo goes, I would not recommend buying lighter ammo. Yes it is faster and it impresses, however you will not be able to hold groups. I bought the heavier ammo(32gr), and I can hold nickel size groups at 30 yards, but 3" groups with lighter. My verdict: for the price, you are not going to be able to beat it! Also coming from a lifelong shooter, it is nice to not have to wear hearing pros, and make sure everyone else has them on too. This gun it truly a pleasure!

Shoots FAST and hits HARD! Once the barrel is broke in, about 200 rds, the accuracy is dramatically increased. It is also pretty quiet, and the heavier rounds tend to be a little more quiet.

It is a little heavy to carry around, but the heavier the easier it is to prop up and hold still. The scope is hot trash, invest in a scope.

I haven't received my air gun yet, But I would like to say that Air Gun Depot is a great company. Ordered my air gun this morning around six a.m. and they had it shipped by 11:00 a.m. I hope the Crosman Diamondback SBD NP Elite .22 Calibur is as good as Air Gun Depot has been to me.

By AndrewUSAMarch 9, 2021 Verified Purchase

there's a lot i could say but my main focus here is just on aiming the gun. All the reviews i read said the scope is junk. that did not deter me from purchasing the gun because I didn't intend to use a scope on it anyway. however, it turns out the rear iron sight is also junk. it's plastic and flimsy. to make matters worse, on only my third time cocking the barrel, i gripped the gun wrong and slipped, and the barrel came flying back up. in an instant the rear sight caught my right hand, which was too close to the barrel, and tore my hand open pretty bad. my own dumb mistake, but this also ripped the flimsy, plastic rear sight right off the gun! i managed to snap the pieces back together and keep shooting a bit longer, but the sight is terrible. had to adjust it all the way to the left to stay on target and it moves around just a little between shots, but a 1,000th of an inch at the sight can mean an inch or more off down range. what good is a gun you can't aim well

love the power behind each shot, and the quietness of it. buried a .22 caliber, 27 grain slug in a piece of 2x3! even an amateur like me was getting 10 for 10 in the black on a standard target at 10 meters. Also, it just looks cool! love the pistol grip.

bad rear sight! cant' find a decent replacement open, iron sight online for this gun. when the owner's manual warns you to keep your hands away from "pinch points" take it seriously! this gun will bite you if you cock it wrong! finding a replacement rear sight is next to impossible. i ended up ordering one from gamo but i doubt it will fit and i'll probably have to rig it onto the gun somehow and force it to work. i ended up mounting the scope in the meantime but haven't shot it with the scope on yet so no review on that.

What are the best pellets for this air rifle? Will it do good with Crosman Premier 14.3 gr?

asked Kevin from USA

New to air rifles ??

asked Roger from USA

Is it ready for 1100 fps with 1 pump?

asked David from USA

Used JSB Exact Jumbo RS at 13.43gr but can't seem to zero in for more than a day. Changed scope to a UTG, same problem. Anybody managed consistency out of this toy gun and if so, with what ammo? I've got the .22 variant.

asked Minion from USA

First check the stock bolts if they are tight, next try JSB 18.13gr , or heavier pellets. Usually powerfull break barrels do well with heavier pellets, those 13.43gr are in the light spectrum for a powerfull break barrel. Try Air Arms Diabolo 16gr and 18gr and H&N 18gr and 21gr. Hope this helps please update your review how it went? I might buy it, I really like the break barrel rifles. They are not easy but man you really get to shoot any other rifle better.

Adrian from USA

Hello, I am waiting on my purchase to arrive. I was wondering if a bipod could be mounted to this air rifle?? And with your testing of this gun, which .22 cal pellet was rated the best shooting out of this rifle??

asked daniel from USA

can use pellets 177 caliber on my rifle 22 caliber?

asked jorge from USA

No, this is a .22 calibur only. The .177 pellets are to small.

Kevin from USA

Received the rifle and seems solid. Scope mounts not included??

asked James from USA

How does this gun perform at 50 yards and even up to 100 yards (with decent accuracy)? Looking for a fun, affordable long range shooter in break barrel.

asked Seth from USA

This air gun does 1/2 pattern at fifty yards with Crosman Premier Hollow Point 14.3 pellets. I hope this helps!

Kevin from USA

what size pellet to kill a huge cane toad?

asked marasha from USA

Does rifle require purchase and installation of air cylinder regularly ... didn't see where to buy that. Do you also have one with multi-shot ability 22 cal also

asked Bruce from USA

This is a nitro piston air rifel means there is a gas ram that pushes the air out and it is a single shot

Gary from USA

Can the open sights be replaced with a higher quality set, or at least the rear sights ? I have heard the sight are made of plastic !

asked Scrambler82 from USA

Mark from USA - Is the rear sight on this rifle built to a standard mounting pattern ?

Scrambler82 from USA

You probably can remove the rear sight. The front sight can not be removed.

Mark from USA

What grain pellet should be used to achieve around 900 FPS?

asked Sean from USA

14 grain 850 fps

Gary from USA

14-18 grains

Mark from USA

Sound level equivalent?

asked Johnny from USA

This is a very quiet air rifle. Beyond 30 ft or so you will hear almost nothing.

Mark from USA

What type of sling do you put on the gun.

asked Hector from USA

I bought a Tactical Hero 2 point rifle sling and it works great. You will need to remove one clip to install on back of air rifle.

Kevin from USA

I would see if the benjamin brake barrel premium fits it worked great on my air rifel

Gary from USA

how can I put a bipod on this rifle?

asked pancho

asked Tom
