    About 5 or 6 years ago I bought a new P-rod "Gen I" pistol. It had all the attributes that I wanted and liked. It was short, light, .22 cal, and a great 'go to'  PCP. However, accuracy was the stumbling point. I couldnt get better than 1" to 1 1/4" groups at 25 yards. After trying many, many different pellets I just gave up on it. I sold it, took the loss and didnt look back. No, I didnt try to tune it because of the groups it was giving me didnt hold much hope for good end results.

    The bug bit again and I called Crosman earlier this week for information. They tell me that the Gen II P-rod will give me consistent 30 yard groups measuring 1/4"! My questions to P-rod Gen II owners: Have you been getting these results, (1/4" groups @ 30 yds), with your P-rod? What pellets does yours like? Did you get these results without tuning and tinkering? 

    Please let me knpw what you have experienced, I dont want to repeat my mistake of 5 years ago.

    Yes, AR, its a new one on me, too. The answers that I got this morning from Crosman didn’t sound quite right to me. Besides, I never thought of any Crosman P-ROD as capable of giving consistent 1/4” groups at 30 yards.

    Perhaps in a vice, but most people "shake" more than that in their hands.  A handgun will never be more accurate than the microscopic movement of your hands.

    So you spoke with whom?  Just the general 800 number? 

     Now just any current marauder pistol,  1/2" at 30 should be achievable.

    What ammo? Mine and almost every other Prod likes H&N 14.66gr the best. Usually 5.52mm iirc. Mine would do 1/2" at 35yds all day long.

    The person I spoke to this morning didnt identify herself. She picked up after I dialed 585-657-6161. I asked her for info on the P-rod, and she gave me answers to my questions. The purpose of my post here is to see what results other P-rod owners are getting with recently purchased pistols. I know that it very unlikely that anyone can shoot 1/4" groups at 30 yards offhand with this or any other pistol. I'm talking about 5 shot groups with shoulder stock attached, and shot from a stable benchrest.

    Half inch groups at 30 yards from a benchrest would satisfy my requirements nicely, and I see that accuracy has been reported in the responses to my inquiry. Thanks much for the responses and discussion. Now I have the information I need to make a decision.
