Great opportunity for somebody to get into the PCP airgun game on a budget. I acquired this gun in a trade so I'm not sure about some of the specs. I do know it has an aftermarket "moderator" aka "silencer" on it although I'm not sure of the brand. I think the trigger might be aftermarket just based on some pictures I have seen of factory guns and looking at some aftermarket triggers online. I do know the trigger is much much better than my tuned Benjamin trail. The scope is a 4-16x40ish CenterPoint. It isn't the greatest but it gets the job done. I think it was probably packaged with the gun from the factory. It has an illuminated mil dot reticle and an adj objective. When I got it I checked POI and then proceeded to shoot 4 eurasian dove at about 25 yards, and a rabbit at 40ish. I'm not going to ship it as I feel like it needs to be degassed to do that and I don't have the tool. I will fill it up before the buyer picks it up. You will need either a high pressure hand pump or a scuba tank to refill it. Pumps can be had for around $180 from pyramyd air and tanks can be purchased from your local dive shop. It has a bit of surface rust on the barrel, looks to me like it could be cleaned up easily. The moderator is held on with set screws and there are a couple of screw marks just behind the moderator on the barrel where the previous owner mounted the moderator before and then moved it. $240 picked up.

Just shot this 10 shot group at 20 yards. There are 10 shots within that circle that I scratched on the paper. I know it can do better, my dog was sitting over me on the tailgate shaking the truck the whole time. I am slightly concerned about the scopes ability to hold zero therefore price drop to $225. Might not be anything wrong with it, but POI wasn't in the same place as it was the last time I shot. These were a new brand of pellet that I haven't shot before and that could have something to do with it being off.

Well hell, just figured out who you are, you need this for shooting quail at your feeders.

I'll take it if you need some shotgun shell reloaders.

Hoping to sell it for cash. Going to buy a Benjamin Marauder .25 with the funds from this and my other air rifle that I already sold.
