Description: 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!

Refurb 397
January 4, 2014
Gun was in pretty much new condition. Accurate. Trigger seems about 8lbs or more. Seems well built, not quite as well as the 342 I had in the 1970's as a kid. No mechanical defects. Rear sight stinks , hard to see, not adjustable for windage . Satisfied with purchase

Refurb was just a junk return sold to me.
February 27, 2013
I bought my refurb 397 here. When I got it, I noticed I had to adjust the wind age all the way over to get the zero. It was accurate but it always annoyed me because I had to smash my cheek into the stock to align the sights. I finally got sick of it a year later and I stripped the paint (my old blue streak had real bluing but this thing has paint), and remove the barrel. I indicated it and boy was it bent. I knew this going in because the front sight was 50 mil off center on delivery. So I did my best to straighten the barrel with v blocks and a dial gauge. I improved it a lot. I re soldered it and it sights in normally now. I guess it was a deal at $99 if I count that I'll need a $65.30 barrel assembly from crosman to fix it. Now why didn't they change the barrel for me? On the crosman forum somebody said they returned a 397 that shot hard left with a bent barrel. I wonder if this is the same gun. So it is basically a wash.
Pros:
It still exists. Trigger and safety are better than my push pull safety on my 397pa. Worse than the simple trigger on my Sheridan rocker blue streak. The price is really low for what it is. Accounting for inflation, I think it is cheaper than a rocker streak in the 1970s at $60. Yes the streak was better quality but kudos to crosman for keeping the manufacturing cheap.
Cons:
My bent barrel. Dang you Crosman, refurb means you fix the return not pack it up and send it to me. It was slightly imperfect to say the least. I guess if I really hate it I can get a barrel assembly. It'll be a $170 rifle by then. I should have just bought new or sent it back after the first sight in. Now I have a bare brass resoldered gun which is cool in itself, but I'm unhappy.
