I bought a Benjamin Trail Nitro 725. It puts out great muzzle energy for one cock, but the accuracy not good enough.
Can anyone recommend the best breakbarrel out there that will put out up to 30 ftlb muzzle energy but will have consistent accuracy and, say, dime sized groups at 10 yards?
Thanks,
Frank

of energy. even the diana 48-52 sidelever cocking puts out 22-24 ft lbs in .22 and that's way more than any break barrel i know of, but that doesn't have to be much either. i have a diana 34 in .22 that's accurate and powerful enough for any pesting i need to do. maybe some of the guys with more knowlege on breakbarrels than me will chip in.

Thanks for the advice. Crosman claims that the Benj Trail NP puts out 30 ftlbf. I was getting close to that with my Trail NP using JBS Exact Kings 25.4g. But the accuracy was not good enough for me. I would like to find a breakbarrel with better accuracy than the Benj Trail NP. A muzzle energy of 20 ftlbf would be enough.

Check this out. It's a Walther Talon Magnum, .25, and the spring has been replaced with a Crosman Nitro Piston. If I were to buy a .25 break barrel, I would give this serious consideration. (I currently own a .22 Discovery and a .177 Phantom). http://www.archerpelletguns.com/Walther ... 6-5046.htm

.... i had one for about a month (but in .22). i think it may have been the quietest break-barrel airgun i have ever shot.. but i wanted to mention that i have had a few .25 trail xl barrels from crosman (they are more affordable and i have them machined down and the crown brushed - cheapest way out on a decent .25). anyway, just as i have found the .22 disco barrels to be, the .25 trail xl barrels are not all accurate. crosman should exchange it if it's under warranty and un-opened. if it's opened, get them to switch out barrels w/ you......even if you had to buy one, it'd be cheap enough. my (good) .25 trl xl brl is on a 2250 w/ a 2260 tube running disco parts. 4lb scoped ?!?! 2000 psi fill getting 12-14 shots between 730-740 fps w/ 20 grain FTT's (and the same speed w/ 18.6 gr pylarms) . 24 ftbs from a 2250 ratkatcher-like rig. i used to be friends w/ this guy, chris, and he'd call this a "garden gun" for sure. coons, cats, dillas - no probs. making one to sale now. it amazes me how .25's stay aloft as good or better than .22. .......at less than 45 yards. - paul d self.

I'd try the Weihrauch HW 97 KT in .22 cal.

Also check out the HW90. It comes in .177, .22 and .25 and it has a gas piston instead of a spring.
