    To the PRod owners, can you tell me what is the sole purpose of that set screw at the bottom of the trigger guard? I took mine off, as I had no use for it and I felt it could unthread and possibly I’ll lose it. 

     

    Thank you

    Its a trigger stop screw designed to adjust the amount of trigger over-travel. Its a nice touch if you are accustomed to target style triggers. However, if adjusted incorrectly it will either prevent the gun from cocking, or give you a dangerously sensitive trigger. Adjusted properly, it lets the gun fire normally, with very minimal trigger travel after the gun fires.

    Put some nail polish or blue loctite if it eases your worry.

    That sucker loves to back out too. I gave up adjusting mine, even with loctite applied. The Leshiy has taken over the Prod hunts. Bolt guns are dead to me!

    Please pardon the poor folks such as myself. If theres any consolation,

    I have a Lothar Walther barrel on mine.

    Isn't the leshiy a single shot?

    What would you recommend in a multi shot compact pistol carbine?

    I took all of those screws out of all my P Rods and 1720T guns. It kept scratching up my knuckles when i would reach to grab the gun. I figured it was sometime of trigger adjustment screw. I took them all off and my p rods all shoot amazing

    Thanks, guys. I ended up removing it and stashing it in the PRod pile of stuff. I really like this thing. Never ever thought I’d add a pcp pistol to my arsenal, and I’m glad I picked the PRod since I’m very familiar with the Marauder and mods for it.

    figire I’ll keep it stock for awhile, and when I get my play money stash built up I’ll be adding a SS valve and Hill moderator for sure.

    What have you Prod owners done to get rid of that slight twitch on the carbine stock attachment, when attached to the pistol. Really a poor fit up design. I have another aftermarket stock coming in from Lee, the kind with the solid bars at each side of the pistol that slide in and out. Those AR stock add ons are cool and all, but really pricey for adding on to a PRod. My plans are to keep this pistol on my side by side ATV, so when I’m doing chores around my property I’ve got a light, go to gun, so I’m keeping the bling mods to it simple. I’d rather dump the cash in performance parts.

     

    Anyway, till that other stock comes in, how are you all getting rid of that stock wobble?

    I traced and cut pieces of thin cardboard and sandwiched them between the grip frame and outer stock grip area like a gasket.

    I have a problem with my multi position retractable wire stock I assume you are getting soon, it sometimes doesn't want to stay

    extended and keeps collapsing when I shoulder the gun even when I repeatedly press the button to try to try and lock it.

    The best set up I have is the RAI kit with AR side folding and collapsible adjustable stock.

    Don't try to hot rod it too much, your shot curve will end up stringing straight down. In my book, for what a P-Rod is, out of the box

    its already set pretty good from the factory for consistency and shot count and if you need significantly more power get an AR6 pistol.

    I ended up wrapping all my adjustment screws with Teflon tape and I haven't had any issues since. 
    I don't understand why Benjamin makes the threads so loose. They need to make it interference fit so when you set it it will actually stay in that position. 

    My Prod is the quietest gun I own. So far Nothing has come close to it's stealth! (@15 fpe)

    I'm hoping my Leshiy will get there someday. (@15fpe) 

    But it's hard to beat the Trigger on the Prod also. 
    For the price the Prod is a keeper!

    Toku, you mind sharing the mix of components that keep that PRod so quiet?

    I have it set to shoot @ 680 fps using a H&N Field & Target 14.66 gr. pellets DonnyFL Shogun LDC. Perfect for Pesting around the house.
