The first thing you should do is a 'trigger fix'...which you can find on YouTube search. I used these bearings to fix mine:
Traxxas 2728 Stainless Steel Ball Bearings, 5x8mm (pair)
It took 10 minutes and a screwdriver. The difference is night and day.
Also, for the money I saved vs buying a more expensive unit, I purchased a UTG BugBuster 3-9x32 scope ($89) and a dovetail to picatinny adapter. The quality of the included scope is about on par with a higher quality pump action BB gun.
Accuracy wise, I'll attach a picture of my daughter's first three shots at 25yds after I got it sighted in. Keep in mind, that's THREE shots, not one.
For $99, I have ZERO complaints...and bought another for my other son for Christmas. My rating would be a straight up 5 stars if it wasn't for the poor trigger (easy fix!), and the mediocre optics. But again...for the total price I paid including the better optics and the trigger fix...I wouldn't have even come close to getting a better gun.
I replenished my pellet supply and did more testing. Of course it likes these, most of my 22's do at 10 meters. Umarex Meisterkugeln Pellets But what it likes even better are the economical Daisy pellets that I buy locally at a better price. Daisy Outdoor Products .22 500ct Hollow Point Pellets (Silver, 5.5 mm) I mounted a Hatsan Optima 3 x 9 x 32 scope that has been destroyed several times from recoil, I just screw it back together, Hatsan 125's are brutal on scopes. The results are pretty good. I would expect these groups would be about half this size with a decent A. O. scope. This is about as good as I have experienced with a moderately priced rifle. The target is 5- 5 shot groups at 10 meters. The targets are a square of electrical tape cut in 4 parts, about the size of an aspirin. I covered my high tech sand bag rest with a plastic bag to help the "sticky" wood stock recoil without excessive drag. It seems to work. A little talcum powder between the plastic would probably help.
I did the trigger mod using the ball bearing Traxxas 5114 5x8x2.5mm Replacement Precision Ball Bearings MR85-2RS (2) and it turns a good rifle into a great rifle. It only takes a few minutes and is very easy to do. The lightened and shortened trigger pull very much enhances the accuracy of this rifle. Benjamin has done a great job in the design of the trigger assembly providing owners a very easy upgrade. It can be done without buying anything if you don't mind cutting up a plastic ink pen. The bearing is an inexpensive and perfect fit.
I have many air rifles. The Benjamin Prowler 177 is one of my favorites, just incredible in every way. I purchased this one thinking it probably uses the same internal components therefore would be the same but in 22 cal. It has not disappointed me. I have depleted many of my 22 pellets and need to restock. Pellet rifles seem to develop a taste for one or 2 pellets and will shoot like crap with anything else. I broke this in with my old standard Crossman round nose pellets with mediocre results. Then I found a can of pellets that most of my other rifles can't even keep in the same zip code. This rifle put 5 of them thru the same hole! It just doesn't get any better than that. I can't wait to get some premium pellets down the barrel.
The rifle has a great feeling stock that is a bit "sticky" compared to the plastic ones. It has very smooth moderate cocking effort. The trigger pull is a bit heavy, I need to address that, but it is worth the work. I have only put a couple hundred pellets down range but so far it is great. Will update if it proves otherwise. I didn't even mount the supplied scope. Past experience with the 4x CenterPoint scopes has been very good but I had a 3 x 9 x 40 Scope laying around so I mounted it instead.
Many people, including myself, had trouble with "bad accuracy",,it's because of 2 things that are easy to fix.
Number ONE,,is the Air-gun scope rail grooves,, 11mm,, and the scope rings will NOT hold tight enough to prevent the scope from sliding on the gun.
SPEND the $14 to buy an ADAPTER rail (from 11mm to Weaver/Picatinny, REAL rifle size), and then you can use REAL scope rings.
Number TWO,, is the TERRIBLE trigger pull,, goto youtube, watch how to put a couple of washers onto the trigger sear pin, and your trigger will be VERY decent. No more LONG, terrible, grungy creep. I had some right sized washers in my tool box,, this modification cost me only about 10 minutes time and NO money.
NOW my gun Shoots GREAT,, superb accuracy, AND the scope HOLDS ZERO all the time. NO scope problems with the adapter rail and real rifle scope rings!
Those low priced scope rail adapters can take the beating of a 30-06 or bigger,, so this is a very good, and very cheap fix to all the complaints about "bad scope syndrome".
It does take some big effort to "cock the barrel" 31 pounds to pull it. but it gets a bit easier after you've put more shots thru it. For come children, women, or men with arthritis, it can be too much, and the more expensive model (with higher velocity, takes 47 pounds to pull it.) I'm 60, no health problems, but my arm gets tired and sore after about 30 rounds.
It shoots more quietly than I thought it would. VERY accurate (but keep in mind that your first 100-500 shots will be less accurate than the later shots (normal break-in).
With the Weaver rail adapter and medium base rings, there is enough space for 60mm or perhaps 70mm fat scope on it. My scope has a 42mm lens, and have at least 10 mm gap before it would touch the barrel. With this combo, my scope "line of sight" is 2" above the bore. Low base rings, might reduce this to 1.5"?
As other people say,, the trigger pull is BAD,, TOO much travel. Did I mention the trigger pull is Krapp? (on Youtube, they show how you open up the gun,, and put some little "washer" onto some specific place and the trigger pull becomes very nice.. and the price of the modification is FREE if you've got a box full of screws and washers to pick the right size for the job.)
Filled an old anti freeze jug with water, set it out to 50-55 yards,,and hit it,, and the pellets (the 14.3 grain Crosman Premier Hollow points) went thru BOTH sides of the Water-Filled anti-freeze jug, this is good enough for raccoons.
I imagine a thin MILK jug will give a good indication of the maximum range for squirrels, birds, rats, and perhaps even a rabbit, etc.
The most accurate pellets (on the Youtube tests) is the Crossman / Benjamin Hollow point 14.3 grain pellets. (The Benjamins (also made by Crossman) are coated with dark GRAPHITE lube... gets you dirty,,but probably helps the barrel, etc. I prefer the Crosman "cleaner pellets" and put a blob of DuraLube motor oil in the can, lubes the pellets, lubes and protects the barrel.
For MAXIMUM accuracy,, take all your (other brand, LOOSE fitting) pellets (for target shooting) and press a BB into the bottom-skirt,, (then remove the BB).. this is to give EVERY PELLET,, the SAME skirt-expansion so they all fit with the same amount of "snugness" into the loading breach... and you'll have CONSISTANT shots.
The cause of most "inacuracies",, is "tight pellets" vs. "Loose Pellets".
As per Youtube, I tried super-glueing a BB into the skirt bottoms of a few pellets,,but that prevented my Crosman-Banjamin Premium hollow point 14.3grain pellets from going into the breach.. I could NOT load them. Perhaps some LOOSE fitting pellets can use this trick?
I found the Crosman Premier hollow points were already the exact right diameter size for the breach, just a bit snug fit, no sloppy ones yet, half way thru my 500 count can, super good accuracy.
NEVER DRY fire it,, you can damage the system.
