Helpful Tip: To maintain the seals for a long time, remember to put one pump of air into the gun when putting it away after shooting. Whether you plan to shoot again the next day or not again for another 2 years, always put one pump into the gun when you are done shooting!

Out of the box, good straight shooter
October 3, 2014
This was a replacement for a 20 cal Benjamin I received from Airgun Depot around 10 years ago. The old rifle lost its seals because I didn't make sure it had one pump in it when I finished using it. You really need to do that. Compared to the old one, the hardware looks the same and it still is a very accurate rifle. I was not impressed the wood stock, it had a scrape in it, and the overall finish was poor in terms of fit, smoothness and amount of varnish applied, compared to the older one..
Pros:
Straight Shooter
Cons:
Poor stock finish

Nice pumper
June 5, 2014
My 392 shoots great. Variable power is awesome. 3 pumps to plink and 8 for full power. Mine shot at 630 FPS with 14.3 gr CPHP's. This gun price might be seem high but compared to some of the lesser priced pumpers the quality is outstanding. Beware of barrel separation, always pump with your hand behind the rear sight. Always store with a pump of air whether you will shoot the next day or a year from now. Lots of places to find parts. If you follow the maintenance outlined in the manual this gun will last for decades.
Pros:
Light Power in .22
Cons:
trigger needs work, affects accuracy a little

392 10th birthday present
May 31, 2014
gave this air rifle to my son for his 10th birthday. He loves it. He had a little trouble pumping at first but now can get three pumps no problem. We got it sighted in easily. I find it a joy to shoot as well.
Pros:
fun to shoot. accurate.not too heavy.
Cons:
not sure about a scope may be hard to pump with a traditional scope mount.

Still a good .22 cal pump pellet gun
March 23, 2014
Like many others that have written reviews of this air rifle, I had one in the '60's also. I was out at the city dump shooting rats when I should have been in my dorm room studying - :-)) I was in Alabama at that time of my life and it was my dream gun when I could not use a real .22 caliber firearm and this pellet rifle was enormously better than any BB gun. Great little guns and the two that I have nowadays work great. I have replaced the rear site with a peep site and I like that better.
Pros:
Shoots straight and built well for the price. You can take them apart and repair them when necessary.
Cons:
Lots of work to pump but... hey, keeps your arms strong. Don't be a wimp and complain about everything..

Benjamin Pump, Baby!
January 27, 2014
Excellent gun and a nicer finish than the one my brother and I had back in the 60's. Now, the new one is only recommended for 10 max pumps. We would pump it up 25 times and BOOM!

Wanted a Classical Pump Gun...Done
January 25, 2014
This is a classical gun, a pumper, .22cal, real wood stock and thus all I wanted. This is not a good gun for plinking. Just too much pumping to do to make it enjoyable for any length of time, but if you are a man's man, it'll do just fine. It is a bit too slow as a full hunting gun, but if you pretty sharp, it'll do fine. I mostly added to my collection (it that is what you call it) so I had a respectable pump gun in the group. Most pumpers are cheesy beginner-only guns or target guns. I use it a couple times a year, but I like other guns better. It shoots accurately enough for me inside 15yds. There are no glow sights anywhere; take it or leave it. It is not too loud outdoors even at full power. I would never describe the stock as "elegant". It is basic, practical or functional. I think it shares something from the Discovery, but I could be wrong.
Pros:
Wide variety of pellets work fine. I like the bolt action. It is a light gun.
Cons:
The trigger is hard. I don't like to pump to 8 pumps as after ~5 I feel like I am slamming the lever into the body of the gun. I do not want to crack the wood pump lever. The rear sight is full adjustable, but it took me a bit to figure it out even after reading the manual.

Good old Gun
December 15, 2013
I had one of these back in the 50's when I was 10 YO and had to get a new one 60 yrs later. it is almost the same good old gun can still put the shot in the black all the time. Fun to have.
Pros:
Better built then the one I had as a kid.
Cons:
The rear site could be better made had to change it to a peep

Not Old-fashioned Benjamin Quality
November 30, 2013
My old but long gone .22 Benji & I were a formidable match for anything I cared to draw a bead on in the 60s. I think my folks spent almost $30 for it. Small round forearm, integral v-notch round stock rear sight and it had a penchant for reaching out and dusting things off well beyond where any other air rifle I know of could put a pellet accurately time and time again. The newer model...PIECES OF JUNK despite what many say when comparing the old -v- the new. About as accurate as a .410 shotgun at a 50 yd turkey shoot with 2 1/2" loads of #4 shot and expecting to win a table fare with it. This cheaper design is lacking in power as well comparatively speaking...they're weaklings that perform very poorly alongside the old standard. My advice...look to another manufacturer or go full bore with the PCP Benjamin. Those...a whole 'nuther story of success!
Pros:
Brand & former reputation of the .22 manual pump pneumatic.
Cons:
Simply a waste of hard-earned dollars and much time being frustrated trying to find a solution to group pellets beyond a couple yards. Seek a different path.

Junk
October 1, 2013
Had this rifle when I was a kid. Loved it. Purchased another one about a year ago. This gun will not hit the broadside of the barn. I shoot at squirrels and it doesn't even scare them. Sometimes it has no power at all.
Pros:
Looks good.
Cons:
Not accurate! Not reliable!

Hopefully Returning
August 21, 2013
This is the rifle that I always wanted as a kid. Finally had the chance I picked it up. The reviews are generally positive and this gun is legendary for its reliability and longevity. I got the rifle yesterday and took it for a whirl today. Started out at 15 feet, First of sights are horrible, second shot way to the right. So (shooting from a bench rest mind you at 15 feet should be putting them pretty good). Not a horrid group but not good either clearly going to open up at 10 meters. Adjust sights after each group of three. Quadruple checked that I was moving sights in correct way and I was. Sights all the way adjusted as far as they will go still shoots to the right at 15 feet and groupings are not good they look random. Always to the right but one 3 inches high another right height, so who knows. I have requested RMA and hopefully this baby is going back. For 160 bucks I am gonna try and get something that has a scope on it. If you pay that much for a pellet gun then one the open sights better be darn spectacular, and two they ought to work, and I am not paying any more money to get a specialized mount so I can see if a scope will fix it I doubt it. I have never struggled to hit a coke can at 15 feet. I have had 30 pellet guns that are more accurate. So maybe I got a lemon, the gun does look beautiful though. Unfortunately I don't need a wall piece. I guess my squirrel problems are going to have to wait until this return thing gets sorted out.
Pros:
Looks great
Cons:
Everything else

Nuts!
July 26, 2013
I have three Benjamin/Sheridan pumps in .20 caliber and a Marauder rifle and pistol in .22.. Paid Sears and Roebuck $16 for a Silver Streak when I was about 10 years old. I am now 73 and that little rifle is just as accurate, today, as was when I bought it. Also have a Mac1 steroid. These two rifles and the Marauders are gems when it comes to accuracy. Last year, I bought a Benjamin pump in .20 caliber, expecting the same accuracy that I get from my other rifles. NOT! This newer piece is all over the paper, regardless of the brand of pellets (have tried 4 different brands/styles). Made the mistake of not immediately giving accuracy a really thorough check the moment I got the rifle or it would have been returned. I still like Crosman's gear (am on a wait list for a new synthetic stock Marauder in .25 caliber). However, I'd advise making the time for a thorough accuracy check upon receipt of any of their rifles.. I'd still recommend this rifle to a friend, but with the caveat - check accuracy immediately and thoroughly.

the gold standard
June 30, 2013
As a kid in the early 90's I would of invaded Iraq with this rifle. 10 years later I really did invade Iraq. I may have carried a m4 for that, but my benji was the greatest rifle I've ever carried. My love for this thing is strong. It started it all for me. Rifle does right what its supposed to. I killed every critter in sight with this.
Pros:

Cons:
You really have to be a picky asshole to find fault with this rifle. Out preforms anything triple the price.

Worst gun I ever owned
June 17, 2013
I bought one of these back in 1988 and it was the best airgun I ever owned. However, things must have changed in the factory of the Benjamin-Ites as the one I just bought last year is now going to get thrown in the trash. This new one will NOT shoot a steady pattern of any kind. If the barrel were bent then I would think it would shoot the same, but not so. I don't know what is wrong with the gun but it shoots horrible. The 1988 Benjamin with three pumps would kill a pigeon at 60 feet. This one with four and five pumps bounces off of them. I wish I would have returned this gun when I first bought it, but due to life issues I did not get to sight it in until long after I bought it. I have a Gamo WhisperQuiet and a Webley Valuemax that shoot circles around this gun.
Pros:
It's paid for
Cons:
Shoots horribly erratic Too weak even at 4-5 pumps to kill a pigeon at 60'

Still Strong After 27 Years
May 29, 2013
I bought mine in 1987, just after my discharge from the Army. It is still every bit as accurate and powerful as the day I bought it. My 5 year old son is now learning to shoot it, and my 20 year old nephew liked it so much he bought one for himself. Yeah, you gotta pump it, but we could all use the exercise, right?
Pros:
Accurate, durable, a lot of fun!
Cons:
Someday I'll be too old to pump it...

Great Buy
March 11, 2013
Best price I found. Bass Pro had it for over $30 more. They are very accurate. The rear sight was a little tricky to learn how to adjust it properly, but once done it's a cakewalk. I painted the front sight post with some night nail polish to help see it better but otherwise it's great. One pump gets the pellet out just fine, the stated 3 are not required. Just be careful who you show this to because they're gonna wanna shoot it more than you!
Pros:
Accurate, simple, and reliable.
Cons:
Some may see this as ugly but ive always been function over form so it doesnt bother me. Wood can be marred easily if you arent careful.

This should be the "standard" which all others compare.
January 12, 2013
I've owned this rifle for some time. It hits hard and accurately in every situation, whether hunting or plinking. Summer, winter, spring or fall the rifle just shoots well with just about anything you put down the pipe. Although moderately rated in the power department (600 fps), it will take lights out and has more than enough stopping power for small varmint. Scoped or bare sight will delight! I believe that if you haven't owned one of these, you can't fluently speak airgun yet! It should be a required purchase for getting to know a pneumatic and how they work/shoot.
Pros:
Accuracy, build and material quality (beautiful stock), and price.

Great accuracy
December 20, 2012
I am in the process of learning how to shoot with this gun. It is a great beginner's gun. It's very accurate, even without a scope. If you need scope, you should get a dove mount or inter-mount (Benjamin Sheridan B272 4-Piece 3/8" ) or something that's gonna help fix the scope accordingly. But overall, you don't really need a scope if only shooting less than 30 yards.
Pros:
The pump action is a pretty good exercise to do.
Cons:
Doesn't come with scope.

Old Old version
November 30, 2012
My rifle is so old it's a Benjamin Franklin. It is probably 70 years old and was rebuilt in the early 1960's, when someone stole it and beat the crud out of it. It is still working and accurate, after all these years. Find another 70 year old air rifle that still acts like new.
Pros:
Longevity and price what's to dislike.

my first airgun
November 18, 2012
I bought one several years ago when my brother made me give back his old Crosman. I've used it for several years and taught my kids how to shot with it. It is now training a third generation on the use of a peep sight. The peep sight was an after market Williams change a toy into a formidable varmint killer. For the money, a dang good purchase but it leaves me lusting for one of those super precharged monsters.
Pros:

What a great gift this gun has been!
September 8, 2012
I got my .22 Cal Benjamin air rifle for x-mas when I was 11 years old (in 1978). I loved it as a kid and shot many rabbits, squirrels and birds not to mention cans and bottles. I have not had it out of the gun cabinet in years. Now that my sons are old enough to shoot we recently got it out and started shooting and it is just as accurate and powerful as ever!!! Out of all the guns I own this is the most fun gun to shoot. By far has to be the best gift I ever received in my life!! If you want an accurate, dependable, quality and fun gun to shoot, buy yourself one or even better give one to a young shooter as a gift. Memories for a lifetime!!!!!!

Benjamin 392
August 19, 2012
I bought 2 of these for my kids. Right out of the box they are dead on accurate. Just lollipop your target and inside of 30 yards or so it's almost impossible to miss. Nice quality piece. The only draw back is it's hard to pump after 3 pumps for smaller kids, say 10 and under. A 12 year old should be able to get it to 8 pumps.
Pros:
-Out of the box accuracy -Quality fit and finish
Cons:
-Hard to pump past 3 pumps for smaller kids.

"Best EVERyet"
December 5, 2011
My father purchased the model 342 cal 22, in the early 70's. The air rifle went many a rigorous testings as I myself did being the youngest of three bros. The 342 now sports a wather 4X32 scope w/ apropiate mounts and is deadly at 50 yards or so. This rifle has had seals replaced last year due to just sitting for so long. Haven't cleaned barell yet. Don't intend to, either. Takes care of all varmints and makes it fun!!

awsome rifle
April 3, 2011
this rifle rocks! i call it my little benji, cause it looks like a sawed off shotgun! and just as powerful! at 12 yards it went through a 1/4" sheet of plywood (8 pumps) its no toy, most powerful pump rifle out there, i just wish it came with better sights. so, take my word for it order the scope mounts too! you should also be aware that you will need a good arm as well, its a little harder to pump than others. but its worth it! and one more thing i like better than those springers is that it has no recoil!

March 19, 2011
the 392 is fantastic. I load one or two pellets depending on what i'm going for. The pumping can be wearisome. 4 pumps is ok for me at say 12 meters. Accurate out of the box, Packed well in the box with a trigger lock that is cool to have, get it, word is lewis meriwether carried the rifle treking across the frontier. Still a freaking pounder today. check out the patent date its like 1888- the finish is good. weight is light

Benjamin 392 Made in USA
March 17, 2011
Out of the box, I planned to send it to Mac 1 to modify it. They do great work and can get it to 900 fps. I was able to (voids warranty) file the sear myself and reduce the trigger to 1 lb. Then, at a hardware store I obtained a heavier hammer spring, and a pair of lighter valve springs using a washer between them in the compression cylinder. Lastly, I bored out the exhaust venturi just a little smaller than a pellet, and the hole in the barrel that matches it. I also polyurethaned the stock, in 3 days, and 12 dollars from a hardware store- I penetrated a 1X6" board with a .22 pellet! It was my first time modifying, I figured if i messed it up, I would just send it to Mac 1 anyway! Now I guess I wont bother. It was a great gun out of the box, but you can home rebuild easily with common tools also.

Benjamin 392 .22 Air Rifle
March 5, 2011
Highly Recommended. Its american made, solid, accurate, and will last a century. I bought one as my great grandfathers Benjamin .177 finally gave up. I will rebuild that with the kit, but I wanted to try a new one as well. I was foolishly obsessed with fps, ect. The .22 caliber at 685 fps. does plenty of damage. I would not be afraid to headshot a coyote with it. I mounted a scope with the adapter kit, I used a dab of rubber cement and threadlocker to keep it from sliding, but it doesn't kick! I like it much better than a springer. you can pump it 10 times, but I only pump 3-10. With three pumps at 20 yards it hits hard. Also, despite being only 1 MM rounder than a .177- the pellets skirt is much longer so it blossoms out like a daisy on impact. Rabbits hate it!

Great gun! Great value!
November 20, 2010
Holy Hannah! I HIGHLY recommend this rifle, and I HIGHLY recommend Airgun Depot. My refurbished 392 got here in great time and shoots € groups at 25yds, once sighted in. Did I mention that this is standing, off-hand, and in low light? I was obsessed with max velocity on this gun, but it hits just fine out to 35yds with four pumps. Crank it up to six pumps and you can easily blow a hole clean through the 16.9 fl oz bottles of Kirkland water found at Costco. Crosman premiers expand (in water) at the head to .221 from the .215 that they come out of the tin. I had a little trouble cranking out pumps seven and eight after the third or fourth round, but I can€™t see a reason to ever need to. I can€™t see well enough to hit past 50 yds, and it does out to 50yds just fine at six pumps. I will group it at that range when I have some light tomorrow. The sights are the typical blade sights that I grew up with on all my .22 long rifles, only the adjustment is an elevation screw instead of the ramped blade that I like. The multi-pump fixed barrel design is far superior to the break-barrel Springers that I have tried. The trigger is a little heavy, but breaks clean with very little creep. This rifle has fantastic workmanship, with a great fit and finish. This is a GREAT GUN! I like the rear sight just fine, but would put the ramped blade like my Marlin model 60 has. It is harder to knock out of adjustment and more stable than the one on this gun. That said; I like a blade sight over a peep and this one is a finer adjustment than the ramp on my model 60. Everything is a trade off, and this is no exception, but I would change the rear sight. Anything else would change the price, and I am dead set against that. Great job B&S.

First of all this gun kicks back like a mule! i mean it probable has more recoil than a 2/23 or even a barrett dont get it its to beeping hard to shoot! but its accurate and will punch through a 100 inch thick block of steel with a diamond core and an addtitional 50 inch thick ceramic titanium backstop! ok maybe not but this thing really is great, the materials are not quite top of the line but come on its still real cheap wood and brass (the brass is realy good) for a 100 or so bucks just get it you will never look back!

I am an air gun novice, so I can't give you any of the technical jargon, I just know this gun is a lot of fun to shoot. I purchased the Benjamin because I didn't want a "toy" made with cheap plastic parts. I was looking for something that felt sturdy and would last a long time. The Benjamin gave me exactly what I wanted. It did require some sight adjustments out of the box, but seems plenty accurate and has enough knock down power to take down all of the things my wife told me not to shoot at!

Just Gets Better!
March 22, 2010
Got my first Benji in 1979, a model 342. I spent countless hours over several years hunting with great success. Gun was very accurate and had excellent knock down power from a good distance. Had it refurb'd a few years ago and it continues to slay the squirrels easily. I recently bought the model 392 so my boys would leave my classic alone! The new gun is heavier and has a narrower sight block but I cant say it outshoots the older model. If you want a gun to pass down through the generations, buy a Benjamin!

best pellet gun i've used
February 11, 2010
I have owned and used many pellet guns. this is by far my favorite.break barrels are difficult to shoot accurately,and take time to master longer shots becouse of the spring,although they are getting better especally in the more affordable models. The multi pumps are easy to shoot. you can shoot them off a rest and get great long range accuracy. I can get head shot accuracy out to 35-40yds with my benji. break barrels can't be left cocked for very long. my benji canbe cocked and left all day while hunting. very reliable,nice and compact,excelent accuracy,good power,legitamate 650-675 fps. most other guns exagerate fps.most springers in 22 do about 100 -120 fps less thanadvertised(chrono them and you'll see what i'm saying)all n all a really good buy,yes hard to pump tofullpower but most practice sesions youpump it only 3-5 times,leave the fullpower pumps to hunting(wy ruin your targets anyway).buy a long eye relef scope (5-6 inches) and mount to intermount between rear iron sights and the thicker bolt shroud. a shotgun scope works great in 4x power.

In 2000 my girlfiriend at the time (now wife)bought me this gun because the daisy just didn't cut it. Super accurate and very strong. I loved the fact I could blow a squirrel 3 ft off the tree when I hit it. Most were dead on impact. Use daisy pointed head lead pellets,and they pack a whallop on any limb rat. This gun is a classic and a must have for under $150. Nothing comes close!!!!

This gun is one of the best. I have shot and killed many many animals... SUPER ACCURATE. I recomend this gun to any airgun user. I had only had 1 concern, it was that the black paint on it gets scratched easily. What I should recomend you to do is get some paint remover and completely take out the back paint on the barrel to unrevel a nice glossy brass lining. Thanks, I hope this helped you some.

Benjamin
September 11, 2009
I have the older model and the only difference i see is the longer forend and the position of the safety. Mine was given to me by my dad who's dad got it for him and after all these years its still going great.I'd say that now it shoots at about 610 fps on 10 pumps. I haven't killed a squirrel with it yet, however i have shot it numerous times. I will wright back after i've gotten to use it on garden patrol :).It is also very accurate i can hit a can at about 30 yard easy every time. It's quality is also awesome, I'm not sure about this model but mine is made entirely of real wood and brass. Overall a great gun for it's durability,quality,accuracy,and insane power.I highly recommend this, or any other Benjamin air guns.

I grew up shooting my dad's old benjamin airgun until some old parts became misplaced. I decided to purchase this airgun because it resembled the old one so much. I tried it out today and wow! The accuracy was incredible and the power left me awstruck. I definately will be using this airgun until it falls apart. I wouldn't trade it for anything!

WOW
August 12, 2009
I just got my Benjamin today and wow. This thing is amazing. I am really into target shooting, and by far this is my new gun for that. There is no kick back and it is very light. If you are into target shooting this is the gun for you. With just the peep sight i am shooting dimes from about 30 yds aways, dime after dime. My intermounts for my scope get here tomorrow and i can not wait to see what this air gun can do from 100yds.

Very High Quality (A )
June 10, 2009
I bought a 392 when I was 12 from cutting lawns. I'm 33 and just had my dad send mine out to me. It still is powerful and deadly accurate after all these years. Do the right thing and put a scope on it. Forget hitting the can. You will now be able to hit individual letters on the can (thanks to the rifled barrel). This airgun has all the heft and attention to detail that is usually only found in firearms. No cheap plastic to be found here.

Whoa! the power!
March 26, 2009
I just got this gun today via UPS, from airgundepot.com, and, unfortunately, it was raining! but I decided to give a fe shots anyways, making sure to keep the gun as dry as possible, as ell as the pellets.since the ground was wet, I didnt ant to sit of kneel, so I cant speak for the accuracy of the gun, but groups at 20yds were about normal for me standing up, so I can assume it is at least as accurate as my other guns. and the power was amazing! straight through a piece of 5/8 plywood at 20yds, and you could still hear the pellet zinging out through the field! the exit hole was massive and the ood shredded ( this may be partially due to the heavy Kodiak pellets I was using). I hadnt noticed any of the problems that other users mentioned. The trigger pull seemed light and smooth, and "cracked" very predictably. Th sight seemed to adjust plenty low enough for a yd shot. perhaps it wouldnt adjust low enough to sight in at 10meters, but people need to remember that this gun was not designed to be a competition gun, but a hunting gun instead. theres no point in sighting it in at 10 meters. however, as most reviews noted, this gun is very hard to pump, especially the last 2-3 pumps. not so hard as to inhibit use, but hard enought to notice. Finally, I would like to note that the 392 is a very quiet gun, at least with my heavy kodiak pellets. most of the noise produced from firing was the sound of the pellet hitting the wood! Overall, my first impression of this gun has been very good!

Best Pellet Gun I have ever shot by far
September 1, 2008
This gun deserves 6 stars but I only gave it a 4 because of quality control. The packaging is not adequit for shipping. My first gun was damaged from shipping and my second gun, which I am going to keep, has a screw at the back of the barrel by the bolt that has been cross threaeded. If it wasn't for the quality problem, this gun, I shoot at a pop can from 100 feet, 10 out of 10 times I hit it. With only 5 pumps it goes through the pop can and sticks into the wood. I think this gun is capable of killing rhodent size animals at 100 feet without any problem. The accuracy was not that great until I used the Crosman Pointed Premium Grade Pellets. I would like to also add that at 100 feet I can pump it 5 times or 8 times and there is no change in the accuracy. That really impresses me. The .22 is the way to go. The Benjamin .22 is by far the best pump up air rifle ever made. I just wish they would do better on their quality control and packaging. Just make sure you inspect your box where the rear sight is that there is no damage from shipping. You can also get a Williams model 64 peep sight that might help improve accuracy. I have no need for it, this gun is very accurate. I would have ordered my gun from here, but Michigan does not allow .22 calibur guns to be shipped without special permits so I had to have my local store order it for me. The Benjamin 392 is the best.

Benjamin 392
August 26, 2008
I've had this air rifle in 22cal for about two years now, and it is a pleasure to shoot. I mounted a crossman 4x32 scope on it, and it can consistenly hit a soda can out to 30 yards. The crossman premiers seem to shoot the best out of it, but I also use other brands and weights with good results. The main reason I purchased this rifle was because, I own an old benjamin rifle which was made around 1938 according to their website, and so after I found out how old it was and how well it still shoots (no leaks) I thought I'd get a new one to use and just keep/preserve the older one. For the price, you get a pretty accurate and reliable airgun. I highly recommend it.

Disappointed
August 23, 2008
I ordered my 392 from my local sporting goods store and it was dark when I picked it up and brought it home. I tried it out to see how powerful it was and I was very happy. Until the next day when I went to sight it in. The accuracy was the worst gun I ever shot in my life and I have shot a lot of guns from bb guns to AK47's. This gun definately deserves a 5 star rating but I am only giving it a 3 and I blame crosman for this. The way the gun was packaged in its original packaging was rediculous. It was not properly protected. It is not possible to sight the gun in because of the rear sight being bent and possibly the barrel. I realize these things can happen during shipping, but in my opinion any idiot could see that it was not packaged properly to withstand shipping. There was only one piece of styrofoam at the end of the barrel. The sight was not protected what so ever. This is a shame because I really love this gun. If I choose to have another one ordered after I return this one I will let you know. Otherwise the 392 is very powerful and very high quality. If Crosman would have packaged it with a little more common sense I probably would be giving it a 4 or 5 star rating.

Not bad for the price
January 1, 2008
I have been shooting Benjamin air rifles for over 45 years. They last a long time, so the last one I bought was actually made by Benjamin. I was concerned that Crosman took over they would discontinue or destroy the design. The design is still the same with the addition of a cross-trigger safety. They have added wood on the forarm to compensate for lighter steel in the pump handle and replaced screws with spit pins in at least two places on the pressure tube. However, the rifle shoots well at 25 meters(0.75 inch) and I expect will get better after about 300 shots (most of them do).

Wanted a Benjamin for 30 years
December 26, 2007
Back in the late 1970's I discovered Benjamin Sheridan. I can remember reading a catalog saying in .177 it could shoot a pellet at 800 fps. I'm thinking it was the model 347. Then I saw the model 342, and it really blew my mind, as I was unaware there was such thing as a .22 caliber air gun. I had a Crosman 766 which could fire a .177 pellet only about 700 fps. Years went by. The closest I ever came to the Benjamin was a Daisy 22SG about 3 years ago. A fine rifle for a good $50 less, but still no Benjamin, despite having a very nice scope. I shoot silhouettes. I have three rams, pigs and turkeys. I've only got one chicken left. Two have vanished. Six pumps on the Benjamin is roughly equal to 10 on the Daisy. You don't need this much power for shooting silhouettes, and I learned this the hard way. What really helped was the Williams peep sight. I hit a lot more silhouettes and shooting paper targets, my scores went up by about 30% instantly. In terms of accuracy, this gun with the Williams peep sight can hold its own again many more expensive imports.

As good as a blue streak.
December 9, 2007
Had a Blue Streak in 1974 until it was stolen from me in the late 80's. I purchased this rifle due to local shops telling me that the Silver Streak did not exist. I found that this rifle has a difficult time shooting a flat nose pellet. I have now found .22 hollowpoint pellets for it. I will let you know when I shoot it next time out with the Jeeps.

All Purpose Airgun
June 21, 2007
The Benjiman Sheridan 392 is an all purpose airgun. Good for general target shooting and small pest hunting, if done from relatively short distances. The gun has good accuracy and power to about 20 yards. I would not use this gun for hunting beyond 20 yards as it does not seem to have sufficient knock down power past this range. Hunting has not been a problem as I regulary get withing 20 yards of small game such as squirrels, rabbits, and doves. Pumping this gun in the beginning could be a bit tiresome, especially when you are trying to get the gun sighted in. I carry the gun with me now when I go out to feed the animals incase I get a shot at a starling or other pest animal. Good pelets for this gun are RWS Super Domes, Crosman Premiers, and Beeman Crow Magnums. If you are looking for magnum power and PCP accuracy look elsewhere. If you are looking for a good all around, self contained, dependable shooter, the 392 is a good bargain.

Nice Rifle
June 16, 2007
A very nice, accurate rifle that is fun to shoot if you don't mind pumping. Some say that pumping is difficult but in my opinion it's just good exercise. It is also my opinion that it is not powerful enough to hunt critters such as squirrels. It will kill them but not quick and in a humane manor. I have made several heart/lung shots on squirrels and they do not die instantly, even at very close range. But still it is a very fine gun. I like it!

PCO'S take note
November 30, -0001
Still loud but, accurate. Teamed with a flashlight, laser and scope, it is well worth the price. Pumping up the last 4 pumps (8) is harder. The reach out and touch on pests (even in low light) is a must have for PCO's. In venues that will not allow firearms (control of penatration ) to be used, it stands out. No more than 4 pumps takes the rat with no over penatration .

By Robert from Puerto Rico on April 12, 2012

Answer:
The FPE (Foot Pound Energy) is dependant on the pellet used (weight) and for this rifle (multi pump) how amy times you have charge it.
If your are looking for high stopping power, I guess a multipump may not be the best solution.

Answer:
8 pumps, max 6 is usually good enough to get the job done.
By Roland from Concord, NH on February 29, 2012

Answer:
Theoretically ten, but it's very hard to pump past 8, and that seems to achieve the listed 680 FPS with most ammo.
