Hey guys, long story short, I finally live where I can use my PCP more and I wanted to know these things...

-I have a stock Benjamin disco w/pump it came with. I'd like to mod it while it's still common/parts available. I haven't shot mine in probably 4-5 years.
-What are the mods you guys would do for accuracy ect? I also drilled a swivel stud in the stock which isn't 100% aligned so using a bipod would make it uneven, so I am looking at a synthetic stock and then as a plus I could camo it which I enjoy doing.
-Do you recommend any parts from here - https://discosrus.net/ ...he said he'd ship from the states but currently they're not taking orders. They also have the Maximus Synthetic Stock for 25$ with a swivel stud, unless better options exist. Thanks in advance guys.. and if anyone is around North Bay, ON let me know, would be cool to know a fellow airgunner in the area.

The sky is sort of the limit when it comes to the Discovery and the Maximus (and a lot of Crosman airguns)

You can replace the trigger with a better one, play around with different hammer spring tensions, valves, hammers and there's power adjusters you can buy.

Don't know what websites you're familiar with but if you look for any place that sells Crosman custom parts chances are good they'll have parts for the Benjamin Discovery and Maximus.

Couple of places in the US that I've purchased parts from that ship to Canada are Magnum Air power and Alliance Hobby. Now I don't know what shipping is like now as it's been a few months since I ordered from them..

Scopes and Ammo and Canada Shooting Supply are Canadian online stores with custom parts for some Crosman and Benjamin air guns.

So far all I've done to my Maximus is a new brass trigger from Canada Shooting Supply and a muzzle break from Alliance Hobby.

There's lots of other air gun forums on the internet especially american-based with tons of ideas to modify Crosman and Benjamin airguns


Cheers,

I have bought stuff off Magnum Air quite a few times..you can get a hogged out Disco valve,they have a Marauder poppet in them, extra light valve spring. He has a bypass valve for the disco too, but you couldn't use the gauge where it would be regularly would be. He use to have Gauge/ Fill adapter too I forget what else. He has heavy hammer springs up to .45 wire and a .42 and I think a .38. i use the .41, cocking fairly easy and get about 30 shots in the 900'fps and into the 1000's and end with about 1700psi, using JSB 18 grain pellets. The ES not so good at 12.39%. It uses 43.3 psi/per shot, I was thinking of a regulator but not sure on it. Not enough room for it with having a depinger in it already with the bypass valve cap.

One reason i havent put a regulator in my Maximus is because of the Maxumus already low pressure and smallish reservoir.

So what do you do about it? I'm not sure if the guy in the US Disco's r us he makes the Disco double tub reservoirs any more, they looked heavy? To bad you couldn't use a Marauder tube to replace. Or get a special tube made. I would be into something like that, might be pricey.

My 2 cents


This dude carries them...Discos R us is temp closed on website but this guy still sells them!

I guess you could try a regulator anyway with just one reservoir or do the double Disco reservoir.

Smarter and more experienced people than me, must have tried both. I guess it depends how much time and money person wants to invest into it.

I am very new to PCP airguns so my knowledge and experience are limited to what i have found through research so far.

Maybe your fine as it is! You can put a Marauder trigger on it, you would probably like it.

I never knew anything about PCP's when I came in here. Specially this disco and how generally the whole PCP airgun operate. I know so much more now in the last 4 yrs... sometimes you can ask too many questions, guilty of that.. there is over whelming info on Maximus and the Disco

Good luck!

As a suggestion...you can drill out the screw hole in the stock that is off center, glue in a piece of dowel then sand/refinish or re-drill as needed.

You could remove the crooked stud, fill the hole and reinstall it straight.

Or could also install a bipod with tilt/pan.. To comp for the offset stud.

I would prefer the wood stock over the Syn maximus stock. It looks nicer, and doesn't have the hollow sound when you shoot. Plus you can paint a wood stock camo. Sand it down, and use bedliner, it will give you a syn texture feel.
