Pumping: manual says 3 to 8. Pumping 4 is easy, 6 is tough, 5 pumps for intermediate range seems enough. 6 pumps will put a hole in a 3/4 in pine board at 25'.
Stock: nice wood but too short for adult men...I am building a home made spacer. Could not find anything suitable from 3D party.
Sight: iron blade sight is pretty good but hard to acquire. Wish it had a bead. I could try to glue on a fiber optic tube. Could put on a drop of phosphor paint. Eventually, I will probably get the adapter and a cheap red dot for faster acquisition.
Noise: less than a 22 short. More "punk" than " crack". Should not tip off the neighbor (one old lady buys pecans to feed the 👿 squirrels).
Generally well pleased. Killed the first bushy tailed, acorn planting rat this morning. Very satisfying.
On the negative side, it gets very hard to pump up to the eight maximum, and your arms will quickly tire unless you've got guns like Popeye. The other and main complaint I have is that it shoots high and you can't lower the rear sight enough to compensate. This has been a common and ongoing issue with these and I don't understand why it isn't corrected. I guess you could file the rear sight notch lower, but it really needs a higher front sight. I was wanting to put a Williams aperture sight on it but from what I've read it has the same problem for many people.
All in all it's not a bad little rifle, and I'm not sorry I bought it. In fact the reason I did was because Crosman discontinued the Sheridan pumper and I figured they may do the same with the Benjamin. Didn't want to be left out in the cold without ever having owned an American classic pneumatic. After all, it makes for a lot of fun for very little money.
