Rated 5 out of 5★ by Jrod12 Best air rifle available! HANDS DOWN When I say best air rifle ever I consider a LOT of things. I must mention that I have a great amount of experience in air guns and compete in field target competitions as well. The Benjamin Discovery is an air rifle that allows shooters to get a real performer of a PCP air rifle for a small initial investment. There really are no other PCP air rifles like that currently. If you are used to shooting spring powered rifles be assured that this gun will blow your socks off! PCP is like going from a flea market VCR player to a playstation 3 blueray! The nasty recoil and twang of those spring guns throwing your shot off target is ALL GONE! No more springer hold sensitivity or replacing scopes either! The accuracy of the Discovery is phenomenal, mine is chambered in .22 and I can print 1.5 inch groups at 100 yards on a calm day. If you do not scope this rifle you are making a huge mistake that I would compare to choosing to run a v8 on only two cylinders. The power in the discovery is equally excellent, in .22 the gun can put out 20 foot/pounds energy which will easily take care of any pests (I know from experience) up to and definitely including raccoon! I mentioned that I shoot field target matches, well I shot my discovery against someone who has competed in nationals and the worlds before. He sported a $1300 air rifle with a $1000 scope on it and I tied him with my stock discovery and an $80 scope. If that doesn't say anything I don't know what does. At 50 yards a COMPETENT shooter can get half inch groups. The gun has a lower fill pressure than most all other pcp guns which allows the user to very easily pump it to it's max pressure of 2K psi. The first time pumping will take a while to get to 2k psi but once there you should only shoot down to 1K and then fill back up. Below 1K shots are going to be falling off target fast and hard. You will get 20+ good, powerful and consistent shots this way. The walnut stock on the discovery leaves something to be desired as mine was not very well finished and felt quite rough, this actually got way better with handling time and subsided. The discovery is not a quiet gun in the least, it sports a sharp crack when fired in stock form but there are after market options to effectively fix that. The dual fuel option is just awesome and affords the user the capability to fill the gun with either HPA or cO2, with cO2 you will get more shots but sacrifice some power. Be advised however, cO2 doesn't perform very well in cold weather conditions. Also be advised that over pumping this gun will NOT benefit you in any way and will in fact actually lock the guns valve shut. 08/12/2013
Rated 3 out of 5★ by cfcrawford The Gun Is Awesome, The Shipping Was Terrible This review is more about my Site-To-Store experience than an actual review of the gun. When I went to the local Walmart to pick up the gun, the box was all busted up. When I got the gun home it was damaged and would not hold air. I returned the gun about 4 hours later.After that I ordered the same gun and pump from an online gun dealer, and I received the gun two days later. As far as the gun goes, it's awesome. It has a lot of power and it's very accurate. In fact, this gun has been destroying all of my wooden targets that I've made and used with my other BB and pellet guns. I have no regrets in purchasing this gun.Would I recommend this gun to others? Most definitely. Would I purchase it again using the Site-To-Store option. No way! Home delivery may be fine though. 08/07/2013
