The disco got 3 valve screws, Maximus only 2. Disco 24" barrel, Maximus 26" Disco wood stock, Maximus Syn.

Maximus got a different hammer spring then the disco, Maximus doesn't have a degasser port.

I like my Maximus.

I like mine,it's well finished and afficient on air.
I don't have much experience with the Disco.
The cons on the Maximus are the heavy hammer spring and short bolt throw.
It's a little harder to get the jsbs loaded.
Really happy with it ,like the stock too...Kelly

I have one of each. The discovery cronied 30 FPs faster out of the box. Here is a parts list and blow up of the discovery for your interest.

I like my Maximus as it shoots very flat and groups well with JSB Exact 8.44's I would not call it well finished unless a 40 grit finish is what you like .

I suppose that's one of the cost-cutting measures to keep the price within reason.

Love my maximus. After some minor tuning, I get a 30 shot string that starts at 805, peaks at 816, and ends at 798. The majority of the string, approximately 20 shots, stay within 811 -814 fps. I added a little weight to the front of the stock with some old .50cal. round balls, and epoxy. I prefer my guns a little muzzle heavy. It makes for steadier off hand shooting.

My Dad bought a Maximus and it leaked right out of the box, seems to be a common issue with these guns...It was a simple fix, but they will need a full internal deburr and likely replace the orings that were jacked from the internal burrs, they don't seem to have good QC (relative to price)

Other than that it seems to be doing alright, decent little gun removing unwanted pests

My Maximus a couple of weeks ago didn't hold air. Sent it back. Not sure I will give the Maximus another go.
