Default First Adult Airgun

After hearing from you all and reading reviews I was going to get a Benjamin Trail NP2 but I wasn't really fond of the stock design. Then I saw Cabelas had the Steel Eagle with the same system for the same price but a more conventional stock. And in .22 cal. Got it home and wiped out the bore then it took 4 shots to get it sighted in at 15 yards.
I know it will take about 100 shots or so to start getting accuracy but I'm happy with it so far.

I got one of the Trail NP2's in a .22 cal. I really like that gun but I i needed to do a trigger job on it. I went to the local hardware store and found several springs and just tried them out. I finally got one that worked. It still has a two stage trigger but it is different. You can feel the first stage get to the second. Then it is a 2 pound pull after that.





Mine shoots the Crosman dome 14.3 grain pellets very well. My Center point scope crapped out on me so I put on a UGT 3x12x44 scope. I like the rifle a lot and have killed a pile of varmints with it.











I made a set of crossticks for it and I love those things.

Yeah that Centerpoint scope isn't the best in the world. I have to see what I have on hand and replace it.
