Nice, hefty little gun, no plastic parts visible, nice to handle.Americans seem to have developed warped standards of quality; I think the finish is sloppy.

The rear sight is bad. Out of the box mine was slanted to the right. Had to file and drill to get it zero'd in. Now the gun looks a bit like Mickey Mouse with his ears sagged to the right, but it's dead accurate.

Overall: if you're prepared to do some work on it it's a lovely, solid gun.

This is just a great 'ol pistol, built like a tank and fits your hand like..well.... a real pistol !! I love old Webley's, and this is just about the same size and heft, and fits the hand well. I got mine, adjusted the sight, and proceeded to put 10 shots on center, you could fit 9 of em under a quarter at 10 meters. Fun, powerfull, and nice quality. Much more than you would expect for the mere price. I got mine used (in brand new condition), with box, warranty, and all papers, shipped to my house for $75.00 Cant beat that !!! I love this pistol, and will keep it forever. Only regret I didnt know about it 30 years ago, I have missedout on a lot of cheap practice !

Best Air Gun for me! I love the wood and brass, and I love the balance.I had a Benjamin rifle as a youth ..I like shooting this pistol . Handling the large pellets is a luxury . I have other pistols, like RWS 5, Crossman 338,Walther PPK, Marksman Plainsmen ,Crossman 38c, and this one is unique.Simply, a good deal.Weak point is the rear sight which is just like my Winchester 22 rifle's sight so I can't really complain! Good power for plinking and fun to shoot indoors.This pistol fits in any collection. Oh, Mine is a E9A model rated 430 fps,and it looks like this one.It is a Benjamin.

As good as it gets.

Now I'm not saying this is a Match Target Pistol nor am I saying it would make a good hunting pistol.

What I am saying is it is Metal, Wood, Brass & Chrome.

Period!

It doesn't excel in any one area but it's not supposed to.



It is what it is, and what it is, is beautiful.



It shoots hard and reasonably straight. Mine Cronies @ 435 fps which I think for a .22 is excellent. It has a rather loud report but not too loud. Just enough in my opinion.

I did the math first because I wanted another Crosman 2240 @

$56. then add wood grips @ $40 min then add a steel breach @ $30 then some chrome... anyway you see where I'm going.

The Benny EB22 was $112 where I bought it but I've seen it for as little as $95.00.



Granted you don't have the support to further hop up or customize your Benny like the Crosman 22xx and if thats what you want then get the Crosman.



If you want a fine piece of history and craftsmanship that you can make even more powerful since the insides are basically the same as a 22xx, but don't feel the need to customize the exterior too much. (nice grips and trigger shoes are available)

You can't Do much better than a Benjamin EB22
