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're done shooting!

This air rifle has no scope rail or dovetail. If you buy one of the scopes or dot sights listed in the accessories link, you will need either the Crosman 3/8" Intermount or the Air Venturi Weaver/Picatinny Intermount.

An American classic! The Benjamin 397 .177 cal. rifle is a multi-pump pneumatic. The hardwood Monte Carlo stock is sleek and lightweight. 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 397 is ideal for plinking, target shooting, slapping spinners and popping paper targets. In fact, we predict this gun will become one of your favorites.

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.

Don't forget to click on the AMMO link for a list of recommended pellets. The ACCESSORIES link has a list of scopes, fun targets and safety gear you'll need.

Things I liked: Classic multi-pump. Not super high end, not low end. Timeless. Shoots nicely. Although I'm a scope guy the Iron Sights aren't bad. Fairly quiet

Things I would have changed: A usable dovetail scope mount would be great so you didn't have to use the intermounts.

What others should know: Has a brass barrel so lead pellets only. Not the most powerful out there, and cocking even a magnum springer beats pumping this 8 times, but it shoots smooth, like a PCP so the pumping is worth it. I had the 392 and wanted this for my collection.

Things I liked: Variable pellet speed related to how many pumps you put in.

Things I would have changed: Better quality control. The wood is not uniform color (I got one with an "oops" where clearcoat dripped onto the wood before the stain was applied) big light colored blot. It's ugly.

What others should know: I have read good reports on this gun and that's why I bought it. Due to variation is manufacturing, the rifles will vary in quality from junk to really great. I got a junker and waited too long to return it.

  • Al. from USA asked:

    brass barrel...does that mean no BB allowed? Forget...I got my answer from Dave C. on chat. NO BBs on a brass rifled barrel.

    • Michael from USA asked:

      can i get replacement parts?

      • Tommy from Hong Kong asked:

        In my place hong Kong we can own only power less than 2 joules .can you reduce the power if I want this model 397 .just for collection and short range paper target indoor.thx

        • Stanley from USA:

          This is a multi-pump rifle so theres no real way to reduce the power it makes , unless you only pump it 2 or 3 times to limit F.P.S..
