Title: Benjamin Discovery
Post by: Britter on June 17, 2009, 12:19:22 PM
I went to Lg Outdoors website and ordered a disco for $343.00 which included the pump (cheapest I could find).  This is my first pcp but definitely not my last.  The pump is very durable and pumps the 2000 psi is a couple of minutes with no big effort.  This gun is powerful but is too loud to shoot in my back yard.  I've been shooting an RWS 48 springer which I thought would be a problem with the neighbors but the disco makes it seem super quiet.  I believe the noise is magnified because of surrounding buildings because it is very mild in the field.  Mine went clean through a 3/4 inch piece of plywood and made a very clean kill on a groundhog.  I will not take a shoot on a racoon or groundhog unless I know I can penetrate the skull and make an instant kill. With the disco and a good scope, that is no problem. When I got the gun the "walnut" stock (stained  beech) looked like it was finished with a belt sander.  I took my time and sanded out all imperfections, applied stain and three coats of wipe-on urethane and am proud of the look.  This gun is powerful and I get great groups out to 40yards with RWS superdomes. The gun is light and easy to carry in the woods.  I can't wait for rabbit and squirrel season.  Very pleased!

Any before and after pics of the stock? I'd like to do something like that, but afraid I'd make it worse.
