I bought this air gun a while back, the gun it's self shoots accurate every shot and is great for small game. But on the other hand the scope is a piece of junk it is very inaccurate. If you buy this gun you need to buy a different scope. It for the money the gun shoots great.

I've now put about 450 pellets through this rifle and I'm only more satisfied with every shot. Based on the reviews I'd read as well as my own reaction to the scope that is bundled with the rifle, I upgraded to a Tru Glo scope at the time I bought the rifle, and I had the Dick's guy mount it for me. As per other reviews, initially the gun was not that accurate. However, I tried to be patient as I put more rounds through the muzzle. After about 200 shots, I nailed a 4x8 piece of cardboard to a tree roughly 25 yards away. I put a large + sign in the middle of the cardboard and then lined up my scope on the bulls-eye. The first shot was between 3 and 4 o'clock and a foot away from center. I followed the scope instructions, and began adjusting for windage and elevation. Within about 10 shots I was grouping reasonably around the bulls-eye. This was with my aiming elbow resting on an a fence post, but not having the gun perfectly still. Since zeroing the scope at that point, the gun has been very accurate. The pistol grip is quite comfortable as is the Tru Glo scope. I paid $169.99 for the rifle in the store. Until recently, this gun was on Dick's website for $139.99, but I see they've raised the price to $159.99 now. Still, with the free shipping, you'll save $10 online. The upgraded scope was $59.99 in store, and I had the benefit of having them mount it at no charge. I just bought a cleaning kit and will be trying that for the first time this weekend. I've read that the cleaning will further strengthen accuracy, but only after quite a number of pellets have gone through. I'd highly recommend this air rifle. It's a lot of fun, whether you're going out to shoot for awhile or just stepping out the back door to fire off a few rounds. Although we're in the suburbs, we back up to the woods, so it's great to leave a target or two somewhere with a "safe" background, although after zeroing the scope, you shouldn't miss much.

I did a great deal of research on air rifles before purchasing the benjamin titan np .177. First was price, you will not find a better quality air rifle under $150.00 that shoots a pellet over 1000 fps, has a full metal "rifled" barrel for accuracy, nitro piston technology (go with the nitro piston models, metal spring air rifles wear out faster and don't hold air pressure like the nitro piston models), a fixed 4x32 scope, and an all wood stock. Second, if you are just hunting varmits or plinking (target shooting) within your yard, a fixed 4x32 scope is all you need for targets less than 25 yards. When you buy this air rifle, purchase an assortment of pellets to find which pellets work best for you. Avoid alloy pellets when breaking in your barrel, just use the soft lead pellets because they are cheaper. You will get frustrated because your shots are not hitting the target during barrel break in. It will take atleast 100 shots before you start getting close to hitting your target. Once your barrel is properly broken in, then sight your scope. Be sure to get a pellet pen, try to avoid touching the lead pellets as much as possible. Lead is poisonous, wash your hands after handling the lead.
When I purschased my air rifle at the store, they bore sighted the scope. After your barrel break in, sighting the scope was easy. Be sure to use a sandbag, bipod, or tripod when sighting your scope. This will eliminate alot of hand shake when aiming. Be sure to use cheap lead pellets when breaking in your barrel.
In summary, this was the best deal under $150.00. Shoots over 1000 fps, all metal construction, nitro piston technology, decent scope for 25 yard targets, and a wood stock. There is no silencing technology, so be sure to use some sort of ear protection. When fired, it is just as loud as a firecracker.

Rated 5 out of 5 by back yard shooter Highly addictive
Bought this rifle after reading several reviews and am glad I did. It's a great value for a very solid and accurate air rifle. The trigger had a very long pull, did a trigger job myself with three washers for less then a quarter,very simple project with the safety still working.The scope and rings that come with the package, well they are a disaster and of poor quality. Do yourself a favor, just pitch them in the trash after you get a quality scope and rings. Also try different pellets to find what your rifle likes.I have less then 300 bucks Invested on a set up that will shoot dime size,five groups all day long. Warning it's highly addictive fun.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Big game squirrel hunter Over 2000 rounds
Shot almost 5 tins through it already put my 3-9x40 tru glo scope and took it to the range shooting better groups at the 25 yard than members using scoped 22's
very accurate and powerful penetrated a galvanized bucket at 100 feet in and out.
I didn't expect it to be this good Recommend to everyone

Nice gun, solid and well built. did not like the scope, had a 40 mm from a rifle that I had bought and put that on the pellet gun. Works very nice now. Have shot just under 100 rounds thru it and it keeps getting better, will see where it is after 200. going to shoot another 50 and clean it again and lube it up, then shot another 50 to see how it improves in the accuracy. Seems like the more I shoot to break it in, the better it gets. Very nice little gun, great for small varmints and pests.
