Things I liked:Simple Effective Reliable Accurate Variable power Average quietness Is now scope-able using crosman's intermounts.
Things I would have changed:Linkage is not as robust as my fathers 392. Can be replaced by exact replica of the original sold by mac 1 airguns. The rear sight gap is a little wide. Front sight is black as well as rear; dark targets are harder to aquire. Fiber optic front sight would be cool. I don't like the fact that putting a scope near the breech is so impractical due to needing that area for a hand hold during pumping.
What others should know:The 392 is a reliable target/small game destroyer. After a couple of fixes. Now days the barrel is painted without being plugged at the muzzle, so small specks of paint make their way into the barrel end. Easy fix though, a couple of q-tips with paint stripper will alleviate its accuracy problems. If you are mechanically inclined, the aftermarket parts and even the tunings you can do yourself are astounding. For example, bore out the transfer ports going to the barrel from the valve and your FPS will rise and be able to dump more air through the valve. Grind down the exhaust valve and smooth the head of the valve and it will allow more air to be transferred through the port due to increased airflow efficiency so more air is actually forced down the barrel while the pellet is still in the barrel. That's just the beginning. If you are worried about the report, they make a brake for it that gets rid of the loud crack. No more annoying the neighbors or scaring off the other squirrels.
Things I liked:everything!the first 5 shot group I shot left only 3 holes, which, of course means 3 rounds went in the same hole,you gotta love that for accuracy.
Things I would have changed:not a thing.
What others should know:I tried the intermounts, weaver rail, and scope on this rifle,but with the scope mounted right over the loading port I found it too much of a pain loading pellets with the scope mount in the way so I just use the open sights, I don"t use this rifle for long distance anyway, so that"s just fine with me as I am a big fan of open sights anyway.
Things I liked:This is a classic air rifle and continues to set the standard for multi-pump pneumatic air guns. The rifle is solid and well built. The finish on the wood stock, barrel and other metal parts is very good. I like the option of target shooting and plinking at lower velocity levels, but also like having the ability to pump it up to a level capable of taking out small and large pests. The gun is also backyard friendly in that it produces little noise. These are the main reasons I like this model. If you’re looking at getting in to air gunning, I would recommend this particular model.
Things I would have changed:Nothing
What others should know:I bought a 397 from PA and decided I wanted a 392 as well (see my 397 review), so my wife gave me the 392 as a Christmas gift. I’ve been air gunning since 1975 and have several Crosman multi-pump pneumatics, a Benjamin 397, a Beeman and Browning spring piston and a Gamo gas piston air gun. They’re all fun to shoot but, this one is now my favorite. Out of the box the accuracy and power of this gun is apparent. Using the sight that came with the gun I was able to shoot holes through soda cans consistently at 15 feet. Although the sight that comes on this gun is more than adequate I replaced it with the Williams peep sight which I prefer. I took the gun to the range with the intentions of doing ballistic analysis on several types and brands of pellets, but my chronograph battery had died. But, I was able to get some data on the H&N Field Target Trophy (14.66 gr) and the H&N Crow Magnum (18.21 gr) pellets. All targets were placed at 20 yards. Here is summary of my results: H&N Field Target Trophy – penetrated both a 0.5” hardwood board and a steel aerosol can. It also penetrated through one side of a steel can and completely through a bottle of water inside the can and left a hole on the other side of the can but did not exit the can (armored bunny test). These pellets produced a 1.5" CTC group using a 5 shot string with 2 shots placed inside the 1.5" bulls eye. H&N Crow Magnum – penetrated the steel aerosol can but not the 0.5” hardwood board. But, because it is a hollow point it mushroomed nicely inside the board. The results of the “armored bunny test” were the same as the H&N Field Target Trophy pellets. These pellets produced a 0.75" CTC group using a 5 shot string with 4 of the shots forming a clover leaf below the 1.5" bulls eye. I’m looking forward to going back to the range and shooting these pellets through my chronograph. I’ll publish those results when I get them.
