About the only thing I regret with buying the EB22 is not having waited to find somewhere here in Argentina where I could get the HB22 instead - just for the sake of the extra power - but apart from that I am MOST impressed with this pistol and would not hesitate to use it for small game at short range. I don't have the kit to chrono anything out of this pistol but I have done some basic testing - and in terms of penetration/deforming of the pellet on impact (both things you want in hunting...

The Benjamin EB22 is amazingly powerfull. ive hott rod'd the thing and am pushing over 478 fps with rws hobby pellets (11.3 grains) and hot roding this pistol isnt a chore either. re finishing, lapping and spring replacing only took me an hour. i never thought i would find a pistol that could outshoot my webley tempest, i was wrong. i can hit pine cones every shot out to 25 yards. i know its not an FT pistol but in the local competitions this gun would put me at the top of the class.

I was originaly gonna go with the Benny 7 pump 22 pistol but when i saw the EB20 i just knew that would make me a happy shooter. I was right. Dont like pumping every shot any more. Well i guess i never did. I bitched about the price ($118.00 with tax).I guess for the money that wasnt bad they had some models there that were alot less gun for about the same money. Plus it felt great in my pretty bigger than average hands.The same day i bought my EB20 i popped a tree rat in the chest ending... (read more)

For what i paid and for what i recieved i really cant complain , this gun is very well put together , I have taken out an abundant rat population with ease at night ( red light ) at 5 meters . Its a noisy pistol but that due to the power available ? is there a way to turn it down to 1/2 of what is available
Excellent value for money and with a real gun feel ,it reminds me of my .22 rimfire bullnose ruger and is just as accurate
My version is the eb22 (read more)

Best .22 C02 air pistol available. Weight and handling characteristics are similar to a real .22. Unexpectedly good power for a CO2. Excellent out-of-the-box accuracy at 25 yards. Fairly quiet, no louder than a child's cap gun. (read more)

The Benjamin EB22 is my first CO2 after many spring and pump-up guns. The power and accuracy are beyond expectation or claim. The box says 425 fps for 20 cal and I get close to 6 ft-lbs at 430 fps with a 14.4 grain 22 pellet. With a scope (2x and I wish I had 4x for this gun) and a good rest, a 1 inch group at 20 yards is achievable. The pop is loud as would be expected for this energy out of such a short barrel due to the relatively (to a springer) constant pressure of a gas or pcp gun. (read more)

The good points I like about this pistol is the sheer power and accuracy. I use it for short to medium range hunting and of coarse targets too. Most things have been covered by other people here so I'll keep it short I've had great results shooting rats and squirrels it's also very useful on a hunt to dispatch vermin that is still alive if someone does not do a clean kill, (very rarely though).
I've found a good website to get parts from like a silencer adapter a nice walnut grip (one piece)... (read more)

I bought the pistol. One day later the bolt was broken. I call Crossman they told me to send it to a mandatory in Quebec. I sent the pistol and they return me a pistol that few days after lost CO2 by the canon. I sent the pistol again. They return me a pistol with the mounting windage screw was not centered on the canon. I give up. Forget me Sheridan. They should call this model a Shitridan pistol. Yesterday I have seen another Shitridan I look carefully and it was a lemon, just looking... (read more)

One good point is that I paid $90.00 for this gun. Most other stores were $107.00 to $120.00. This helps swallow some of the crudeness.
A price of 40 to $50.00 is more in line with the quality of this piece.
Now after all this negativity... I like this gun. It's powerful, shoots better than I do. (read more)

Let me first just say that I am remaining objective in this review -- this is not a rant. That said, I just can't see how some of these Crosman and Benjamin/Sheridan guns get such high reviews. My guess is that either some of these "rave reviews" are coming from Crosman themselves (marketing type folks) or people who have nothing else to compare their purchase to.
When looking for a .22, I opted for the B/S 392, per the great reviews. It ended up being (for all intent purposes), junk. Too... (read more)

I stand corrected.
After taking this pistol out with me on two or three shooting trips, I take everything I said in the other review of this pistol back. The EB22 is pin-point accurate (within reason) and is ultra powerful for a pistol. I shot an apple clean in two from 20 feet with no problem what so ever. The CO2 also lasts for longer than the manual tells you, too - even taking into account that I'm using this pistol in the winter. I've been using this pistol in single figure... (read more)

Although I've only had this gun for about 30 minutes now, I think it's worth writing a short review about it.
First of all, I would like to start this review by saying that I did my research before buying this gun from Airshooter. This is my first CO2 pistol, so I didn't want to get it wrong. I'd spent a lot of my time reading reviews such as these on all different kinds of airguns, from under lever rifles to specialist target pistols, and after swimming through this sea of information, I...

I should begin by saying that I have very little experience of air/CO2 weapons. With five years in the Royal Artillery, my main experience is with military small-arms (I was a marksman with my old 7.62 SLR) and bigger guns. However, these are my impressions of the Benjamin EB22:
The first thing I noticed from the box was the heft and build quality. I had read as many reviews of different pistols as I could during research prior to buying the EB22, and reviews concerning the EB22 were... (read more)

Having bought my EB22 only a matter of hours ago i am confident in such a short amount of time that this is the most capable air pistol i have fired.
It feels very sturdy and well built unlike even some of the more expensive options i have (ie 92fs)
Inserting co2 is easy as it just slides into a compartment below the muzzle and is locked in with a screw cap. Then all that needs doing is inserting a pellet. It has a simple bolt action to load the pellet into the breech after which only a... (read more)

I've had my EB22 for about a month now and have shot at least two tins of pellets through it. So far it has been 100% reliable and it's quite accurate, grouping within one and a half inches at 20 yards consistantly. On the average, it will get 35 shots per Powerlet before starting to lose power. In fact, the only complaint I have is with the front sight, a sloping ramp, which is hard to see except in bright sunlight. I highly recommend this gun to anyone who appreciates quality. (read more)
