Things I liked: Lightweight. Short carbine like length. Variable velocity with pumping. I usually pump 5 for 392 and 4 for 397. That amount give good accuracy
Things I would have changed: Paint overspray in barrel. Somewhat heavy trigger
What others should know: I replaced rear sight with Williams peep. Easy to install, on target with few adjustments. No filing needed. Rustoleum flat black nearly matches paint if scuffed
Things I liked: Wood and metal feel. Fairly accurate with Crosman hollow point , and JSB diablo exact dome pellets. True for my 392 and 397
Things I would have changed: I put a Williams peep on my 392 and 397. Works better for me than the standard rear sight. Aperature of peep seems large to me,but is working ok.(would have prefered smaller) I did have to spend 20 min with a Que tip an acetone to clean paint from the inside of the barrel. For $160 why does crosman get paint inside the barrel?? Trigger is somewhat heavy. Heavier than I remember from my Ben 342 from the 1970's
What others should know: When tapping off the rear sights(to install Williams peep)my 4 yeay old 397 went ok. My newer 392(had thinker paint on the barrel and receiver ) and was more difficult. I scuffed up the top of the barrel in a few places. Touched up with Rustoleum flat black paint. Not a perfect match but close
Things I liked: Like many other reviewers this was similar to the gun I had as a kid, my Dad had the silver streak and I had the blue streak. Some great memories hunting cotton tails and doves, quail and pheasants with these guns. I also currently have several of the break barrel designs by Gamo and Beeman. These 392 Benjamin's seem like a very high quality gun. Even better than my old Sheridan. I still have an old 1974 Sheridan that fell off of a shelf from one of our Calif earthquakes but still operates. This Benjamin is a hard hitting gun & accurate too. I like the extra knock down power of the 22 cal. I now wished I wud have ordered the scope version as my eyesight is lacking. So I will now have to order the scope and special brackets. I didn't need this gun, but I wanted it, and I will enjoy it. I'm not shooting my supper anymore, but plinking targets is fun. I say to buy one, you will luv it.
Things I would have changed: The hardwood stock is beautiful, but kind of heavy and I'm worried about scratches and such. I wonder how a plastic stock wud do? I'm going to have to buy a case to protect the wood finish.
What others should know: I luv how there is absolutely no recoil. I was shocked when I first shot a break barrel. Loud as all get out and some recoil. I also have several Co2 powered airguns. At some point I may jump to a pre filled tank set up and a larger bore. I have several firearms that are much less expensive, but I somehow enjoy the old school technology of using compressed air to fire a projectile.
Does anyone know what kind finish is on this the stock?
Is there any way to make this air rifle more quiet? Many people compare the sound to a .22
You can actually purchase a moderator adapter and attach a moderator. I found one on E-Bay.
I have the older model 342 and theres really no way to make it quieter . Mine is quieter than a 22 .
I found this gun to be way more accurate if you do the artillery hold. I know that hold is for springers, but seems necessary on my 392. Did anyone else notice this?
Whatever works best. But since there is no recoil you dont need the artillery hold.
If the artillery hold works for you by all means use it i say. I don't use it with mine and seems accurate to me.
