Hi all!

Seriously missing rifle shooting..
What would be your pick between the Benjamin Classic and the Browning leverage?

Reliability,parts sourcing, no mods except brining it just under 500ft

Thank's

Benji Classic. Easily available parts, rather reliable, easy to work on and to upgrade if you wish. Maybe less pricey too?

Another thing, I find the Browning rather nose-heavy (under-lever rifle). For bench rest shooting, no problems, but for standing, unsupported shooting, I'd rather go with the Benji.

I love both my Benji and Browning, they're two different rifles, .22 and .177 respectively. Both shoot very accurately. After a good tune, you couldn't believe my Classic is a spring gun, there's no spring noise at all. There are also kits to convert to nitro ram instead of steel spring: http://scopesandammo.com/storefront/pro ... 1000-p-471 , and easy upgrades you can do to the trigger: http://scopesandammo.com/storefront/pro ... more-p-242 .

Enjoy!

As a shooting experience I prefer the Browning under lever.
