Benjamin Maximus AirgunsARP Max Combo
Happy Birthday to us. AirgunsARP.com turned one year old this month. In celebration of this achievement, we’ve been working with our friends at Airgun Depot on a special New PCP Shooter’s pack. We worked with Airgun Depot to put together a combination of PCP air rifle and accessories which we would recommend for a person looking to purchase their first PCP.
Benjamin Maximus PCP Air Rifle
Our first hurdle was in choosing an entry level PCP air rifle to recommend. When it comes to entry level level PCP air rifles, the only major player in the game right now is Crosman. Up until a few months ago, we would have settled for a Benjamin Discovery as our entry level PCP, however the arrival of the Benjamin Maximus has changed that, and done so for the better. Unlike the Discovery, the Maximus is available in both .177 AND .22, giving the shooter the option to select the caliber they desire. The other benefit of the Maximus for a new shooter is that, like the Discovery, it only needs to be filled to 2000PSI. This makes it a very pump friendly PCP rifle. Includes a padded sling as an added bonus.
- Available in .177 or .22
- Pump Friendly 2000PSI fill pressure
- Built-in pressure gauge
- Maintenance free synthetic stock
- Loud. No moderator or shroud makes this a loud PCP rifle
- Single Shot only
- Dovetail Mounting rail (Why can’t more people offer both, like Hatsan does?)
Air Venturi G6 Hand Pump
This one was a no-brainer. Of the entry level hand pumps out there, the Air Venturi G6 is a solid, affordable gateway tool into the realm of PCP airgunning.
- 4500PSI/310BAR capable pump
- Moisture Filters
- Folding footplate
- Easy to rebuild
- None really, a pump is a pump.
Mantis 3-9×32 AO Scope
For the Scope choice, I deferred to Airgun Depot’s suggested scope. I initially was going to recommend my ‘GoTo’ entry level scope, the CenterPoint. The team at Airgun Depot instead recommended that we go with their Mantis 3-9×32 AO Mil-Dot Scope. According to the team at Airgun Depot, the Mantis offers a clear image, parallax adjustment of 5 yards to infinity, and is rugged enough to stand up to magnum springers. I’ll share more about this scope when I get one in for review.
Rat on a Stick!
The Air Venturi Rat on a Stick and Rat on the Run targets are two of my favorite reactive targets on the market. The build quality on them blows the competition away. They are ruggedly designed, and more importantly, engineered using actual bolts and nuts instead of rivets and spot welds, making them easy to maintain and upkeep for years for shooting fun. Do pay heed to the minimum safe distance warnings on these, and you should have years of shooting fun ahead of you.
JSB Diabolo Exact Sampler Testing Set
Last but by no means least, the package includes a JSB Diabolo Exact Sampler Testing Set. These are great options for new PCP air rifles, as it allows you to try four different pellets in your air rifle, and with 60-100 pelletes per sample type, you have enough to make a decently informed decision when it comes to choosing a pellet.
