This new S2 version of the Stoeger X20 lessens the decible output of the already quiet breakbarrel. This improved system combines the functions of an internal air-regulator ring and baffles that work in tandem to reduce noise better than any other airgun on the market. Unlike other airgun manufacturers that utilize only sound dampening baffles, Stoeger's X20 Suppressor utilizes the Dual-Stage Noise Reduction System. The air-regulator ring has four decompression holes that bleed off most of the compressed air before the pellet even enters the baffles. The remaining compressed air dissipates throughout the baffles further reducing noise.

Far Exceeded My Expectations
I researched .177 caliber air rifles extensively before finally deciding on the Stoeger X-20 Suppressor. Unlike other major brands, I could not find a bad review on this gun - and I scoured the internet for months. Not finding anything other than lavish praise and 5-star ratings for this model, I finally took the plunge and ordered one for Christmas. My expectations were high because of the great reviews, but when the gun arrived, my expectations were blown out of the water. To say that this is a NICE gun, is a MAJOR understatement!!!

The packaging is a little childish and "cartoony," but make no mistake, this is not a child's toy. The first thing I noticed when I took the gun out of the box was the weight. It "feels" like an expensive rifle. It shoulders well and has no recoil. The trigger pull is heavy, but I prefer it that way. For those that prefer a lighter pull, the trigger is adjustable, so no worries there. The break-barrel cocking mechanism takes quite a bit of effort to cock, so again, if you are ordering for anyone younger than a teenager, they probably won't be able to cock it. My wife can barely do it.

When I ordered, I was a little concerned about the quality of the scope, which looks extremely short and squatty in all of the pictures I saw, but I was pleasantly surprised at this little treasure once it arrived. Out of the box, the windage was dead on, but the elevation was about a foot low. After about 50 pellets and 15 minutes, I had it sighted in dead center and grouping so tightly that it looked more like a deer slug had been fired through the target instead of 10 pellets. I've put about 100 more pellets through since and it has kept its accuracy without any further adjustments. (By the way, I'm using Daisy .177 Cal. Precision Max Pointed pellets - the cheapest I could find at $1.78 for 250 - and they are doing fine.) The illuminated reticle is fun, you can choose either red or green and adjust the brightness level of both colors, but the battery doesn't last. Even with the illumination turned off when I wasn't using it, the battery only lasted about a week.

I was also very concerned about "loudness," which is why I ordered the Suppressor model. Let me tell you, it is money well spent. I had read in several reviews that the gun was louder than expected due to dieseling, so I went to a friend's house out in the country to take my first shots. I'm glad I did. The first 2-3 shots sounded like someone firing a .22 rifle. However, by shots 4 and 5 the loud "crack" had subsided, and by the time I had put 10 pellets through, it sounded like a spring action BB Gun. I brought it home and shot it in the back yard, and my wife didn't even know I was shooting. Other than the "thunk" of the spring, this gun is silent when fired. It smoked pretty badly for the first several shots (from the dieseling), but by the time I'd put 10 shots through that had subsided as well.

After 2 weeks and over half a tin of pellets worth of shooting, I have to say I LOVE this gun. If you are teetering on the edge, let me go ahead and encourage you to take the plunge and by this air rifle. My only regret is that I didn't buy it sooner!!!
ProsIt has the weight, feel, look, power, and performance of a much more expensive rifle. And it's super quiet - no louder than a BB gun.
ConsThe box that the gun comes packaged in looks childish and cheap and takes away from the high quality look and feel of the gun. The gun is way nicer than the package design implies. Also, the illuminated reticle is a neat feature, but it uses up the battery way quicker than anticipated.

Squirrel Smacker...quiet and accurate!
I purchased this pellet rifle in .22 cal as a quieter option for dropping squirrels. We've had this gun for over 2 years now, and our family loves it. At 50 yards, my kids can hit milk jugs with no problem...I can reach out to about 60 yards to do the same. We swapped the stock scope out almost immediately, and with Predator Polymag pellets, it's a rodent punisher. It is fairly quiet, and when I'm shooing on my deck, my family cannot hear it inside of the house. My neighbors cannot hear it at all.
I would highly recommend this gun, and so would the squirrels around my house...if there were still around. :)
ProsVery accurate, fairly quiet, in .22 it is devastating on small game
ConsCrappy scope comes with it
Best UsesSmall game, firearm safety and practice without the noise, plinking

Great value....
My yard was over run with squirrels. They were killing everything including my cedar trees that they literally debarked. Then they started damaging the house. What to do? Buy this air rifle!!

I looked at a lot of air guns and finally settled on this one after much research. I didn't want to spend many hundreds of dollars but I did need something that was accurate and quiet. This rifle has fulfilled these requirements. Out of the box I set up a target to zero the scope. Maybe I was lucky but the factory setting was dead on! Then I put the rifle to work. My first job was to adjust to shooting a springer. In short order I had it down and then we went to work. All I can say is the local (formerly over populated) squirrel population "ain't what it use to be" as they say. Last count there were 35 fewer "problems" in my back yard.

You can buy a better trigger if you are a serious target shooter, but I get by find on the factory one. You can install a better scope if you want to, but again, I get by on the factory one. I admit its not top shelve but gee...what do you expect at this price? A really good scope will cost more than you paid for the rifle! I use this rifle the way it came out of the box and its been a wonderful tool to clean up the neighborhood. I have no complaints with it.

I have owned firearms and air guns for over 50 years. I judge things on how well they function and how much I have to spend to get the performance I need for a job. This rifle has performed better than I could have expected for the price I paid for it. I just recommended one to my brother for cleaning up his place.
ProsGreat performance for the price paid. Accurate Dependable Nice finish Fits well
ConsNone that are fair to list at this price point. It works great

real nice rifle, but................
the scope that comes with it, should have stayed somewhere else. piece of crap. it cannot even be focused, the screws in the rings, of which there were eight, had three of them so badly cross threaded, they were unusable. but being as i like the rifle so much, i got a better scope and rings for it and wahlah, damn good shooter.

Ok, but some problems
This was a Christmas gift for my son. Since I have the same air rifle, and love it, I bought him one but his has had some problems. First, we noted the illuminating scope doesn't illuminate. Could be the battery, but I mean come on, it's brand new! More concerning was that after a few dozen shots a small C clip fell out of the receiver! Really?? I've contacted Stoeger and we're working out the details to return it for service. I know from experience that these air rifles are good and I fully expect that Stoeger will resolve the problem, it's just disappointing that within a week it has to be shipped off for service.

Meat getter!
Put a good scope on this rifle and fix the trigger and you will never starve to death! Seriously, the scope us junk, the trigger is doable with some ingenuity and some 5th washers. Set up right this rifle will stack pellets in the same hole. The velocity on mine with 14 gn pellets is 640 fps. Just don't tell the squirrels! Love this rifle! My dog loves this rifle! The squirrels, not so much ;)

Nice little gun
Received this nice little gun packaged securely in an attractive Stoeger box. My first impression is the rifle is solidly built and put together with care. It's fairly light and easy to cock. The supplied 4x32 scope is easily mounted. I bought the 22 caliber version. I tried 4 different pellets and all entered the chamber easily and all impacted the target close to one another. The trigger isn't all the great having a long travel and hard pull making it hard to determine let-off. This is easy to correct with an aftermarket trigger which I may do in the future. I paid $99.00 for this gun which is a steal. I tested the muzzle velocity and here's what it did. RWS 11.9gr Hobby pellets averaged 794fps, H&N Sport HP 12.65gr averaged 765fps, Crosman Premier 14.3gr averaged 721fps, and H&N Barracuda Match 21.1gr averaged 568fps. The velocity spreads were surprisingly low for a gun that is not yet broken in averaging about 7fps with the 11.9 Hobby pellet having the lowest at 4fps. I recorded these numbers out of a brand new rifle so I was impressed to say the least.

I haven't got a chance to test the accuracy on paper targets yet but had no problem hitting and small steel can at 100 feet consistently. Pellets passed right through both sides of the cans. The supplied 4x32 scope works well enough but is too short to get a proper cheek weld. The mounts come with a stop screw so you cannot mount it back further on the dovetail. I will be replacing this with a longer, higher magnification scope which I prefer anyway.

The gun is fairly quiet with the loudest, perceived noise coming from the spring which seems loud to the shooter, typical of a springer.
Overall, a very nice gun for not much money.
ProsLight, easy to cock. Good accuracy and velocity. Well put together and attractive.
ConsTrigger pull is heavy. Spring noise. Scope is too short for this gun.

Very poor quality
This piece of garbage won't close all the way and constantly shoots low. If you yard on the barrel after it's closed it will shoot consistently for about 2 shots. Oh and be sure not to touch the barrel while sighting it in because it will drop out of position. And don't lean it on the barbell then expect to use it, the barrel will be out of position. And shoot shrapnel all over. Over all this is a joke. Sell a bunch to the Koreans and we've got it made. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY !!!!
ConsBarrel doesn't stay closed at all. The scope is not adjustable. Kind of comical how poorly this thing is made

Outstanding! .22 right out of the box, awesome power and accuracy. Replaced scope with a 4-12x40 AO scope, and fine tuned. Cleaned barrel, changed trigger screw (google for mod) which improved what was already a very good trigger (even though other people have complained about it). Using Crosman HP Premiers at 14.3g, will put 5 shots in less than a dime at 25 yards (steady rest)!!!!!!! Every time. East to cock (even though it is a springer!) and best of all: VERY QUIET! I own three "suppressed" airguns, and this one is by FAR the quietest of the lot - for break barrels. My absolute favorite backyard plinker!
ProsAccurate, powerful, great feel and balance, smooth, and VERY QUIET!

This is my fourth rifle from Airgun Depot, and out of a total of five, this is now my favorite! AD sent it out superfast, and as always (for a refurb) you almost cannot tell! Looks and feels new! I did immediately replace the scope with a variable adjustable objective scope (like all my airguns), did a thorough cleanup (bore cleaner, degreasing etc. and actually zeroed the scope in 3 shots! THREE. I have since fired about a 150 pellets through it, and it is still zeroed in. Best part: at about 22 yards from rest, I am getting a nickel sized group with several shots going through the same hole!
After that it was chrony time! Crosman premiers HP 14.3 gr were pushing out at an average of 735 fps, yielding around 17 ft lbs of energy at the muzzle! H&N Field Targets @16.36 gr were pushing an average of 665 fps. and ULTRAMAGS @ 18.2 gr were going out at 635 fps.
Amazing figures, but the best part: This gun is so quiet!!!! I have a suppressed Benjamin .22 , and a suppressed Gamo Whisper .177 (both gas) and this gun is quieter than BOTH!
I am thrilled, that I decided to pick this up! Backyard, here I come! Squirrels: go away and stay away from my fruit trees!
ProsGood balance, not too heavy, power, accurate silent!!
ConsTrigger, but nothing impossible to deal with. I just have to do some work on it or replace it with the aftermarket units out there.

Good pellet rifle
Nice pellet rifle for simple varmit sniping. Scope isn't very accurate. Been shooting 70 pellets at targets anywhere from 5 - 40 yards. Cannot get the scope to sight in at all. It's all over the place. I can't get two pellets to hit the same area EVER. I fire one pellet, fire another at the same spot, with the same eye, and the pellet is up to 6" away from the prior shot! The scope is not able to adjust or keep itself in one spot.
ProsCompact, quiet
ConsScope sucks, inaccurate. No hope of getting a precise or tight pattern while shooting.

Silent Squirrel Puncher
Surprised how quite this gun is. There's almost NO "air" noise or "pop" like every other airgun that I've shot. My paintball guns are louder than this gun. I shoot it in my basement, and my kids don't even hear it on the main floor of our house! (usually they come stampeding down the stairs, asking for a turn to I have undisturbed shooting time :)
There's a noticeable "spring" sound, but it's WAY quieter than any gun I've fired. Can't wait to take squirrels apart in a fairly suburban setting without neighbors getting upset. Perfect gun for this task!
ConsScope has room for improvement

My favorite springer. Quiet too!
I bought this as my first .22 caliber springer, and the supressorwas a selling point. Mine is a refurbished unit, so I expected it may have some wear and tear.Other reviews said to use thread locker. I have learned that all spring operated air rifles need thread locker on all screws.

This rifle looks great, balances well,does not look cheap, and works as I wanted. After adding thread locker to all screws,and checking the alignment of the scope, I fired my first pellet. This was a dead on bullseye. The next four shots were the same, very accurate and quiet for this type of rifle.

The stock is made of heavy duty plastic, the fit and finish is solid and crisp. The scope could be a bit weak depending on your intended range. My scope had a small hair inside, I could not take the scoe apart to remove this, it is inside the scope, but is not in the crosshair portion. The scope appears to be a Centerpoint, same Chinese made ones found in big box stores. Not a deal breaker by far, but that hair or stray piece is going to annoy me over time.

Still, a well made rifle that works for what I wanted. Accurate, powerful and quiet, yet well made and appears to be more expensive than it really is.

I am not really trigger sensitive, this feels like a decent trigger to me. Many people may think it is heavy, but I may be used to military trigger for too many years. This one works fine.
ProsSolid build of stock and receiver. Consistant operation, trigger.
ConsRefurbished rifle included a scope with a "hair" that is seen in the field of view. Besides the scope, the rifle has no cons.

Good Bang for the Buck...
Long story short: If you don't already own a .22 cal. air-rifle then this is about as much bang-for-your-buck as you're going to get!
It is a well made gun, lighter & shorter than a Nitro gun, accurate & powerful.
The mounted compact scope unfortunately is simply the wrong type of scope for this gun, unless the shooter is a child choking-up on the stock.
The scope cannot be moved back far enough, even with the butt-pad removed, to get to the proper focal-length for optimal, comfortable shooting. There are no iron sights.
The suppressor works well & is serviceable (unscrew tip), but the overall noise the gun makes is still quite noticeable, inherent to the Mainspring mechanism.
You basically have a "22 short" rifle that sounds like a powerful BB gun.
The trigger-pull is long & sudden. This can greatly affect free-standing accuracy.
There are no other "rings" or "rails" for mounting any other accessories to the rifle.
If you are interested in only owning/adding 1 "suppressed" .22 cal air-rifle, the Benjamin Trail NP is still the standard & well worth the difference in price.
ProsGreat value Accurate & powerful Fairly light & short
ConsWrong-sized scope for rifle No iron sight (alternative) Basic (bad) Trigger Louder than Nitro gun

Great gun for the price
Very nice and quiet gun. Ran over 1000 pellets through it. I really like the scope on this. The only thing negative I can say is the long trigger pull. Hard to stay on target with the longer pull. It's still shoots within a Silverdollar diameter at 30 yards. That is plenty good for me plinking in the backyard.
Pros Price and quality and quiet
Cons Trigger pull

Great Bargain
This gun was shipped and received quickly.
It arrived with the scope mounted, and seemed accurate enough. I have the .22 version.
Seems to have decent power.
The trigger breaks more crisply than other reviews led me to believe.
The scope is, honesty, not very powerful in terms of magnification. Also you have to get your eye close to it, you will not see anything.
The silencer is cool looking. It does work, although you still hear the mainspring clicking around.
The breakbarrel closes very tightly.
The safety is well designed and in a good location. It feel like it is meant to be part of the gun, and not just added as an afterthought.
The recoil was less than I expected, although there definitely still is recoil.
ProsGood Power Cool silencer Decent Trigger (as good if not better than other spring guns I own) Sturdy Construction Tight action Good Price/Good Bargain Tolerable Recoil (it is a metal spring, so expect recoil) Good Safety
ConsLow magnification Scope Scope must be held close to your eye, or you will not see anything.

What was vague to me in the other reviews is clear to me now. 'silencing' refers to the shot and projectile. The mechanism to fire the pellet for sure makes a 'clink' that is perhaps loader then I had thought but so short in residence that it seems muffled. Dialed in scope for 45 mins and hit 5" at 50 yards at 90%
ProsPower, accurate, scope was much better then other reviews had led on to be

Stoeger x-20 .22
as easy to cock as my Winchester 1100 .177 springer, (once the barrel is opened) but much quieter, and makes a bigger and deeper hole in my target plywood backing, (goes through the first 3/4 sheet and into the second). Plus the barrel just takes a little more effort to open and virtually none to close. Solid and accurate.
Wish I had bought the Stoeger instead of the Winchester then id have two great guns .177 & .22 Stoeger's
ConsThe trigger is a little long but for some reason, while standing, the pull straitens out my wondering and hits very close to the bulls eye! (maybe this is a Pro?)

Good Airgun good value
The stoeger x20s is a great shooter once you learn how to shoot it , It like so be held with a firm grip because it dose have a lot of recoil. I was able to hit 1/4" groups at 20 yards.

the gun dose seem to be pellet fussy .
It shot the best with crossman .22 premier pellets and Jbs exact heavy .

I bought this gun because my Gammo was not powerful enough to kill the racoon's that were after my chickens. the stoeger x20s had no problem with a well placed shot to take out 30 lb racoon's
ProsQuiet and accurate good value for the price the rifle is built well , and feels solid
Consthe scope is usable but i recommend replacing it with a better scope , and the trigger was awful , I did replace the trigger with a after market trigger and now the gun is a JOY to shoot.

Worth every penny
I read reviews and information on airguns for about a month before choosing this one. This is my first spring gun, so I was expecting all of the problems that I have read about this type of gun. The gun arrived very quickly and well packaged from Airgun Depot. I unpacked the gun and cleaned the barrel and it was almost spotless out of the box. I then leveled and adjusted the scope back, and braced myself for a long and frustrating break in. I started at 10 yards, and had the gun zeroed in about a dozen shots. I moved out to 20 yards, and shot a 36 shot group, all of them in one hole about .75 inch. Now I do not know what some people expect for 150 bucks, but I feel that it was money well spent. I did not care for the trigger pull, but I fixed that with a longer adjustment screw. I also wish the scope had more eye relief, but it works well and I am getting used to it. I think this is a great first spring gun and I am very happy with my choice.
ProsWell made, smooth, quiet and accurate.
ConsNeeds longer trigger adjustment screw, scope could use more eye relief.

nice gun, very accurate
the gun is very accurate but you need to buy a different scope mount that is offset and pushes the scope back 2-3 inches farther, so you can easily see thru the scope. I can easily shoot a 1 inch group off hand at 30 yards. Very quiet on the 22 caliber version, I wanted this one so it would not crack the sound barrier and make that gun sound down range. highly recommended gun for the price.
Proscomes with illuminated scope which is fantastic for longer range shooting.
Consscope rings are not useable on it, get offset scope mount to push scope back farther

Stoeger X-20S Suppressed .22 Caliber Air Rifle with Scope
I experienced difficulty opening the barrel to load a pellet. The manual instructs to
"tap the barrel behind the front sight". I tried many times and my next door neighbor
did too. My son came over a few days later (I was going to return the rifle) and he tried.
He opened it, so you can imagine my surprise. When I asked him how he did it, he
demonstrated me "tapping" the barrel. But he hit it like Mike Tyson throws a punch!
You have to REALLY tap it.

Can't hit a barn wall twice in a row....
Not been happy with this rifle AT ALL.My father, myself and my friend, all seasoned shooters, have not been able to shoot a group with this rifle. Not 2 in a row!!! We have tried eveything. Shooting prone, from rest, from shooting bags, clamping the gun into a shooting rest, and still no two shots even close. Scope is tight, but maybe it has loose reticule, or something.
Ya trigger is not very good, but we've compensated for that.
Bought my daughter a cheap little one from walmart, and she can shoot circles around this gun, we all can with the cheapo.
Not sure whats next to do with this one.

$150 for gun, scope and case that shoots 3/4" groups at 30 yards
I havent owned this gun but a few days and only have about 100 pellets through it, At 30 yards it took 4 shots to sight the scope. The gun shoots about groups at 30 yards with a 4 power scope and stock trigger and a $150 gun you cant ask for anything more. I had real concerns because I can move the barrel when in the closed position but with the same hold on the stock and a slow deliberant trigger pull it is one heck of a deal for this gun. I see a lot of people say you need a better scope and trigger but at this point I cant see any reason for it. Spend the money on pellets and spend time shooting your ability has a lot more to do with hits at 30 yards than a better scope or trigger.
ProsPrice Accuracy
ConsLoudness – This gun is not quite like you would think from the advertising. Pyramyd rates this gun a 2 in loudness. That would make it one of the quietest and I would say it more like average. I haven’t used a DB meter yet but by my own ears its just average.

Droopy Dysfunction
Barrel is tilted downward a couple degrees when action is locked up, enough so that the droop is easily visible. Cannot get enough elevation out of my optic (UTG 3-9x40AO) to compensate, which is probably why Stoeger bundles this with a fixed 4x that has more internal adjustment. Poor QC on Stoeger's part. Trigger was awful, but predictable. Just started to quiet down a bit right before I gave up on trying to get it zeroed. I know there are compensating mounts, etc., but this droops so much it's noticeable. Will be returning and putting the funds towards a PCP.
ProsAesthetics and fit were fine. Easy cocking. Shroud gave good purchase on the barrel during cocking.
ConsDroop, trigger, poor 4x optic, tons of dieseling at the beginning. Louder than expected, but I didn't give it time to quiet all the way down.

Great Springer Rifle
I was really surprised by how well this rifle shot. After 10 shots it was became easier to cock. I liked the illuminated scope. I took it out on cold damp day with misty rain. It was very accurate. I was getting 1/2 in groups using JSB Exact and RWS Super Domes. Everyone was saying that the trigger was stiff but it continued to loosen up as I was shooting the rifle. I bought it on sale and was well worth the money. The suppressor worked very well. My Benjy Disco was tad bit louder than the X-20.
ProsAll weather stock, Accuracy, illuminated scope. Location of the safety

Great rifle
This gun was shipped and arrived in great condition. It was not as quite as I had hoped it to be after watching video (hardly any sound except for pellet hitting target) of it on the Stoeger website. The gun is still quitter than my other air guns. It is pretty accurate with supplied scope after scope was properly adjusted and sighted in.

Gun wasn't bore sighted and scope wasn't mounted properly when it arrived.
Pros1. Strong, penetrated plywood to depth of .25" at range of around 48ft. 2. Easy to cock and load 3. Fairly quite 4. Good trigger
Cons1. Provided scope is mounted to far from eye. Scope stop slot in rail prevents scope mount from being slid back to proper position. Suggest the dovetail to weaver adapter with longer tube scope for proper mounting. 2. Scope has dot in center of cross-hair which prevents precision slots at range. Suggest getting scope with fine cross-hair.

Beside from the scope, I love everything about this rifle.

I used to have an x50, which was a bit too loud, big and heavy for me.
Everything that was too much on the x50 is just perfect on this one

Trigger is nice & smooth, seems I was could have been a bit better tho

Scope was completely off target coming out of the a distance of 15m it shot about 60cm to the right

Sub par gun great service
I bought this gun and it shot well but honestly I didn't have time to break it in because it had a bad breech seal and the breech was roughly machined. Air Gun Depot let me return it for a full refund and paid the shipping. Too it was louder than my .22 nitro venom which shoots much better and is still breaking in at under a 100 shots. Air Gun Depot gets an A+ for service!
ProsLooks awesome, good merchant.

Good Rifle at sub $150 price point, but some issues.
This is my first "adult" air rifle. I have two Crosman 760 air rifles, the original from my 13th birthday in 1970 that doesn't work any longer and a 2002 model which I had been using up to this purchase for rodent control in the yard. I looked at a number of rifles, including the Crosman and Benjamin gas piston models, but decided upon the X20S after seeing two favorable reviews by Paul Capello and Rick Eutsler, with particular emphasis on how quiet the rifle was. Since I live in a residential neighborhood, this was important. However, both reviews were on the .22 X20S, not the .177. I had all but decided to buy a .22 Crosman Nitro Venom, but the sale price on the .177 X20S was $20 less, so I ended up with this gun, thinking I could put the difference toward two tins of quality pellets.

General Summary:
Overall, it is a nice feeling rifle. It is pretty heavy, heavier than my .22WMR Marlin rimfire. The synthetic stock doesn't look or feel cheap and fits me pretty well (5%u201911, 165#). The rifle has a tactical look to it with the all black finish, but doesn't look too %u201Cout there%u201D like some of the sniper type rifles. I love the position of the safety and that it automatically is set on when the gun is cocked. The safety is truly ambidextrous and easy to operate with your thumb. Many of the other rifles I looked at had the safety inside the trigger guard where it could interfere with shooting or possibly result in a negligent discharge when taking off safe. The cocking force is pretty easy and I expect that even women and young teenagers would have no real problem operating this gun. The trigger is not great, but seems to be predictable. The 4x30 scope fits the rifle well and is probably adequate for the effective range of this gun (sub 40 yds). However, even after tightening the rings and mount, the tube has slightly rotated due to the spring torque and the reticle is no longer plumb. It doesn't seem to affect accuracy at this point. The scope doesn't have mil-dots, which would be useful for taking shots outside the normal range for this rifle. Long term, I will probably have to replace this scope. Suggest you keep a 3mm Allen and a #2 Phillips with the gun and tighten all the screws before every use. How quiet? I have heard that the .177 is noisier than the .22, but I have no reference. This rifle has hardly any report from the muzzle, but the spring power plant is still quite loud, so it seems loud to the shooter. So far, no complaints from any neighbors.

I ordered the gun on 1/2/14 and the first gun arrived on 1/8/14. The first gun had a machining defect in the breech area and it had to be sent back. AGD was great in arranging return shipping, but the whole affair took another 3 weeks before I actually had the replacement gun. Even with the replacement gun, the machining in the breech area leaves much to be desired. The o-ring groove is very rough cut. The bore itself is an unfinished opening and as received, I was not able to load some of the premium pellets I purchased with a flush fit. The cheapo Crosman Pointed pellets from Walmart loaded okay as did the JSB Exact, but not any of the Beeman or RWS Field Line pellets. I can't believe that Beretta doesn't chamfer the breech which would probably add no more than 2 minutes to the fabrication time of the gun. I used an "A" gauge drill and hand-reamed a slight chamfer so I could fit the Beeman Crow Magnum, RWS Superdomes and other pellets into the breech and not clip off the back when closing the breech. I have attached photos showing this. The barrel is super low quality soft steel, so be careful if you try to make this modification with a power tool.

The biggest concern for most of us is accuracy, and this rifle is pretty good out of the box. Stoeger mounts and bore sights the scope at 25 yds. The day the second rifle arrived, it was about 20 degrees outside, so I took some shots leaning over the sink out the kitchen window. I included a photo of the first target I shot with the 10 first shots out of the gun using the cheap Crosman Pointed 7.9gr pellets at 20 yds. This was with no adjustment to the scope at all. This thing kicks like a mule compared to the old 760, so most of the scatter is due to operator inexperience with a spring rifle. All ten shots would have scored in a shooting competition. After making the breech chamfer, I shot Beeman Silver Arrow 11.57gr pellets at 70' and with the exception of two flyers due to operator error, I was pretty pleased with a 1" group, again leaning over the sink since it was raining that day. I did adjust the elevation on the scope for the Silver Arrows since they were about 3 inches low due to the weight of the pellet, but still no change in the factory windage setting-amazing. Side note, I don%u2019t believe the theory that heavy pellets will damage a spring rifle. Later in the day, two large rodents were attacking the bird feeder 70%u2019 away and the rifle easily dispatched both. The Silver Arrow pellet delivered amazing power and anchored both within 2 feet of the point of impact. At about 15 FPE, this rifle will deliver the 11.57gr pellets at just over 750 FPM. Overall, at the less than $150 price point, this is a good rifle. However, and I hope Stoeger/Beretta is monitoring this post, I am only giving 3 stars due to the poor machining in the breech area and the obvious lack of quality control in letting the first rifle I received leave the factory.
ProsAutomatic Safety and located perfectly for ambidextrous operation. Factory mounted scope with bore sighting at 25 yds makes out of the box shooting possible. Nice look and feel to synthetic stock. Easy to cock.
ConsPoor machining in the breech area. Soft steel used for barrel Scope mounts not holding tube against spring torque.

I Love Mine
I took my supressed x20 out of the box; and ran a cleaning patch down the barrel, and started hitting 10meter bulls at a dime sized target. Five bulls all touching. I had not adjusted the trigger,or sights. I own four other air rifles of different brands and caliber,but this stoeger is my favorite now.
ProsThe rodents around my house have moved to SOCHI. Almost no report, just the sound of the spring bolt. That is with subsonic ammo. It will sound like a 22 long rifle with alloy ammo..... I shoot everything so the trigger pull of this hunter does not have to be perfect for me,but it is alright.
ConsNo Cons from me.

Love it!!!!
It has exceeded my expectations. This high end plinker is cost effective and very well built. My first break barrel air gun and I like it a lot. I don't know how difficult all other break barrel weapons are to cock and load, this one requires a man or burly woman to set up for a shot. After pulling the trigger its well worth the work-out you get from cocking it. Like one of the review's I had read about this gun, it sounds like a 22 cal. for the first half dozen rounds sent down range, and depending on the type of ammo used it feels like a powder actuated 22 cal shot. (Crosman hi-velocity .177 pellets) All and all this plinker is fun fun fun. Go buy one for yourself and find out what all the fuss is about.
ProsBang for the buck, you get a lot of fun and gun for the price you pay. Then lets talk about the quality second to none. I should have gone all out and bought the x-50 model.
ConsI live in the subs and had to warn the neighbors before using the Hi velocity pellets because of the poping sounds after pulling the trigger, Now my biggest problem is when they hear it, they all come over to shoot it....Chuckles... Solution is to just use average pellets then its whisper quiet

Stoeger's X20 Suppressor is a Tack Driver ! ! !
I was interested in a Stoeger X20 with Suppressor in .177 and in my research had read reviews both pro & con. I know from past experiences you can get a lemon with just about anything from a vehicle, appliances, and yes even a gun. And I have had a gun that was an absolute lemon, and in fact I gave it away telling them to use it as a fishing weight. But back to the Stoeger. With Airgun Depot%u2019s 30 day return policy I figured I%u2019d give the Stoeger a try. When I received the rifle before I even mounted the scope I took a cardboard box filled it full of folded newspapers and went into the garage and fired about 100 shots into the box to break in the barrel. Afterwards I mounted the scope and went out into the backyard and sighted in. I can sum up the Stoeger X20 Suppessor%u2019s performance in two words. %u201CTack Driver%u201D If you are interested in a Stoeger then check it out. I was more than pleased with the performance, and I was using cheap ammo. I can%u2019t wait to fire some of the more premium rounds to see how this rifle preforms... They're on order and on the way... Lastly,, it's the quietest air gun I've even seen / heard... The power piston makes more noise than the actual shot does...
ProsThe weight feels like a high powered deer rifle in the hands. It shoulders well and is well balanced. Plus,, It's the Quietest of the 3 air guns I own on top of being Very Accurate!!! It grouped in at 1 inch at about 25 yards...
ConsNone Yet...

I just use an air rifle to keep the squirrel population down around my house as they are fond of eating it. I'm still getting used to it but, once I got it sighted in pretty well. I've found it to be quite accurate and powerful enough to take them out.
ProsIt is a solid, no nonsense air-gun with good optics and quality features. It is quiet which is good because of the residential area that I live in.
ConsIt is heavy at about 8 and just a little long in the padded but-end to the trigger and scope for me but I'm getting used to it.

Stoeger X-20S Suppressed .177 Caliber Air Rifle
Very well made rifle. Not a comp. rifle, but excellent for avid hunting demands. No problems/malfunctions yet. Accuracy varies substantially with different pellets. Not so much cheap vs expensive, but with weight and shape. Since .177 has a remarkable trajectory curve, "just because it is what it is." Shoots heavy pellets very well with better accuracy. Quite since the first shot, only hear the spring. These rifles are plenty powerful enough for hunting/varmint control. I got a beaver and he weighed almost 100lbs. It is the 4th one taken with an air rifle. Hit him right between the eyes from 25yds with x-magnum heavy pellet. Killed as efficiently and humanely as with a 22. Beaver problem is decreasing.

Got my New Stoeger X20 Suppressor today in .22, WOW! Average 650fps with the Crosman .22 14.3 grains HP's, out of the Box. My 40 year old Crosman 1400 will break 600 fps with the same ammo on a warm day! :(
ProsNice gun, well packed, fast service, just no where near 800 fps with lead pellets. Stoeger X-20S suppressed is accurate though.

Not impressed
I sighted it in, or tried to at about 50'. I could hardly get 2 pellets within two inches of each other. Scope was loose when it came in but I tightened it first. Adjustments on the scope were not at all predictable or linear. Finally put a good scope on it. A 2x7 Nikon, so far I've shot 7 different pellets and around 200 rounds. Shooting from a perfect rest in a controlled environment at about 50'. I have not shot a consistent group yet. Well maybe a consistent bad group. What could be wrong? Any suggestions. My 35 year old Benjamin with open sights is more accurate.

The look and feel of the air rifle is good and comfortable to use. Good hitting power and surprisingly good groupings out of the box. Excellent service from Airgun Depot, the shipment arrived quicker than expected.
ProsLike the weight and the overall balance of this rifle. Power is good and the accuracy is also good. Sound suppression was good out of the box and after shooting, it began to get better.

Great rifle for the money
The Stoeger x20 S is a great value. Quiet, accurate, and powerful in .22 cal. It has a nice tactical look and feel. It's carbine sized which reminds of my M4 that I carried in Iraq lol. I love it. It's extremely hard to beat in this price range. If you want a perfect air rifle then you need to spend more money. Buy FX! If you want something really cheap that's really good and well made buy Stoeger.

good rifle bad trigger
The stoeger x20 s is a great rifle. The only reason why I gave it three stars is because of the trigger. It sucks. It is not bad, it's really really bad. Accuracy is not to be achieved with this trigger. Buy a GTR gen 2 trigger and this rifle will shoot like an expensive Europe rifle. I don't understand why many manufacturers destroy there rifle with bad triggers. Run and buy, just upgrade the trigger and you have a great airrifle there to shoot dime size groups from 30 yards. Also upgrade the scope.
ProsThe weight Ergonomic Balance
ConsThe TRIGGER. The worst trigger I have ever put my finger on.

Great rifle.
This is my first adult air rifle (after shooting Daisy growing up) and I like it. It's spring loaded and has a little kick to it, so it takes a little to get used to. It has a good weight and feel to it. The scope is nice but I upgraded to the RWS 4-12X50 to get a better look at targets at 30 yards. I can't comment on the suppressor since I have never shot a spring loaded air rifle before, so I don't know how load they are without the suppressor.

Superb X20 .22cal
Much more than I expected for a rifle in this price range. Although, I will probably upgrade the scope, it was very easy to sight and resulted in a very accurate shot. The look and feel of the rifle are excellent. My wife finds it a little heavy and the break action slightly difficult but she loves the knock down power and accuracy of the gun. I expect that after the break-in period the break action will become easier. Currently using Gamo Rocket pellets with good results. Looking forward to trying the X50.

Nice quality feel. nice heft. may be quieter than an unsuppressed spring load but be prepared if you are new to spring loads as I was. this thing has a loud snap to it. I have been told this is norm for this type of airgun. believe me, it ain't quiet. even after break in.

Best pellet gun
After purchasing this pellet gun, I was amazed at the silence of this gun, however, the first few shots are pretty loud. It is deadly accurate after you sight in the scope which is very easy to do. The illuminated crosshairs are very cool, but the battery runs out fast. This gun looks very expensive and is made to last.
