Made in the USA

An American classic! The Benjamin 397 .177 cal. rifle is a multi-pump pneumatic. The hardwood Monte Carlo stock is sleek and lightweight and sports a raised cheek piece. The rifled brass barrel is finished in black and sends pellets screaming at 800 fps! You can vary the velocity by the number of pumps (up to 8). The rich wood stock of this airgun is carved to fit the arm and the eye for smooth, clean shooting. Although this gun has been made for decades, the manufacturer continues to put extra fine details in the rifle, such as a swelling in the forearm to make it easier to pump and a fully adjustable rear sight. You can put a scope on the 397, but you'll want to use the B272 intermount to do that. At 33 feet, this airgun can deliver a half inch group. It's accurate and it's forever.

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!

The Benjamin Sheridan has stamped on the barrel 397 pa. My question is, what does the pa signify? Also, how do I order a scope, and scope mounts?

I owned a Sheridan at one time and it was often getting an air lock.when pumped up sometimes it would not shoot.Does this ever happen to a Benjamin? Thanks
By Rob from Southern California on January 21, 2012

I bought mine in 1972 and I have never had that happen.
By Carter from Washington on February 15, 2012

Sometimes, but not once every 5 years.
By L. Ledbetter from Dallas, Texas on June 10, 2012

I've owned a Sheridan silver streak .20 since 1979, and have shot it thousands of times, many, many hunting trips, and it has never done that either. It still works perfectly, and has benefited by the use of the newer Benjamin .20 cal. pellets at 14.3 grain. Nice! and very hard hitting.
