    Engineer401 is a straight shooter. I bought an item from him and it was delivered today. It's just as described and was sent out quickly. Thanks for a smooth transaction!

    Trigger seems to have lightened a bit on pull now after about 100 to 150 shots. Got it sighted in good at 20 yds. now about a 1/2" above the front sight. Got a nice surprise with Gamo Magnum pointed 15.42 gr. pellets indoors at about 6 yds....

    I guess i need to mention another point about this new 392...it's very easy to pump compared to the one i had to take back. Even with 8 full power pumps on it, i could easily shoot this one all day. The other one seemed to be well oiled on all...

    Got the paint in the bore down very thin now. It's grouping 5 shots right together all the way to 20 yds.(as far as i've shot it so far). Looks like this is going to be a shooter. I think i'll stop cleaning on the paint at this point and just...

    Nothing wrong with a good break bbl. gun. I may well have that and a pcp before it's over. However, for my first(since I was a kid) air rifle... It had to have a fixed bbl. so no problems with scope alignment, metallic(not plastic) sights, ready...

    I'll bet if the company made the guys painting these have to clean the overspray out of the bbls. before packaging them for shipment, they would learn to put a cork stopper in the bbl. before painting real quick lol. No telling how many of these...

    Took a break from the paint cleaning and shot 25 rounds through it at 15 feet with 2 different pellets. It's already improved some with the cleaning efforts....crosman premiere hp were only doing about a half inch for 5 shots, but 4 of 5 shots were...

    I had a heck of a time getting good accuracy from my H&R M158 30-30 until 35shooter suggested moving the front rest closer to the hinge on the forearm. Much better now with all boolits.

    Beware of the lead oxide dust that you kick up when sifting. That's the only thing that makes any sense of how my lead blood levels rose up. Only did it a few times.

    Glad you didn't get hurt. I've seen several good accuracy reports on the vantage, so i hope you report back on yours when you get a chance to put it through the paces.

    The powder coating varies a little bit but is about 26 BHN. The thickness on the bullet varies too, about .001" for the "shake and bake" method and .002"-.004" for electrostatic spray method. The rifling of a barrel is thicker than the coating. This...

    Bummer and sounds about like my kind of luck lol. Hopefully PA steps in and will say close enough on the 30 days. If not, Beeman should stand by the 1 year warranty and fix it or replace it. Actually, my luck would be more like it breaks after a...

    Yeah, it was definitly the right move to return it since it was a returned item from a previous owner for a new price. I thought about the rear sight on it, but it was on rock solid. I'll start over with one i know for sure is "new in the box"...

    Well...it turns out my "new" rifle turned into a 1" to 6" grouper at 20 yds. and further with several different pellets. Long story short...i got suspicious and went back to the big box store i bought it at. They had one left in an "opened box"...

    The Optimus and the crosman vantage are probably some of the best deals for under a hundred dollars available. Seem to be a lot of good reviews on them with few negative reviews. i just bought a Benjamin 392 but was considering the vantage also.

    Yeah, i can see a peep sight in the near future for mine. My eyes really need a scope for best shooting, but it's such a handy little rifle, i hate to hang the extra weight of a scope and mounts on it.

    Never heard of anyone that's worn out a barrel with lubed bullets. It's fairly common with jacketed bullets, especially in the magnums. Powder coated bullets are way too new to know whether they are good for barrels or not.
