    Built & made in the USA
This version of the Discovery does not include a pump, tank, yoke or fill adapter. To connect your Discovery to a scuba tank, you'll need a scuba tank adapter with hose and a female quick-disconnect with male threads. The tank must have a K valve.

To exhaust air or CO2 from the rifle, you need to purchase the degasser tool.


Get into precharged guns at an unheard-of price and also get the accuracy of an expensive European rifle!

Benjamin has bridged the gap and taken the pain out of PCP guns. Not only is this as low a price as you'll ever find on a PCP rifle, but it's so easy to pump up that a wispy teenager could do it!

The Discovery has raised the bar for PCP guns because it uses only 2000 psi of air. While the European companies race toward higher and higher air pressures, Benjamin is going the opposite direction and making it easier than ever to use a hand pump. If you want to use a scuba tank or carbon fiber tank, you can do that, too, and get the benefit of many more fills than you would from a gun that operates with 3000 psi. The Discovery gives you a choice! The air reservoir is 135cc. The air tank has a male Foster fitting.

The gun comes with a hardwood stock, Williams fiber optic front and rear sights, and a built-in air pressure gauge.

When you open your box, you'll see easy-to-follow and easy-to-understand instructions that'll lead you step-by-step. If you're an experienced PCP user, you'll soon see that the Discovery is the easiest PCP you've ever used. If you're new to PCPs, you'll become a pro in just a few short steps.

If you want to switch to CO2, that's easy to do, but you'll need a degasser tool to quickly exhaust all the air before filling with CO2. Attach the optional CO2 adapter, connect it to a standard paintball CO2 tank and fill 'er up! Now, commence to shootin'!

With high-pressure air, you'll get up to 25 powerful shots before you need to pump up again. On CO2, you'll get a lot more shots per fill.

Things I liked: Simple design that has lead the way for many shooters into PCPs for a long time. Due to the number of them in customers hands, there are a good number of aftermarket items available for a Discovery, should a person desire to personalize it. Absolutely excellent Williams Fire Sights. They are a significant step-up from the traditional black-on-black sights during the twilight transition period at each end of the day. I really like them. Plan to use them a good bit before mounting a scope.

Things I would have changed: It would be nice if Benjamin/Crosman decided to lighten the Sear Spring and Trigger Return Spring a bit.The trigger assembly has a fairly hefty set of springs. I understand in todays world why they are heavier than they need to be though. Benjamin/Crosman (or ANYONE) should offer a high pressure air pump to fill a tank, which would run off a Tractor PTO. Should reduce the cost of a pump considerably to design one without needing a motor of its own. The Discovery needs a set of Sling Studs, but I can add them myself. And I'll probably put a satin weatherproof finish on the stock.

What others should know: The first one I got would not hold air. Disappointed to say the least. I spoke to Dan at Pyramyd and he told me how to get the RMA procedure started by clicking on Contact Us in the upper right corner of the Pyramyd web page. It did cheer me up to know Pyramyd was paying the Return cost - very nice touch. I got the second Discovery and noticed it had 1Kpsi in it on arrival. Pumped it up and it is holding air just fine. This one pumped up to 2Kpsi from 1Kpsi using an AirForce pump in 52 pumps. It took 4 pumps(of the 52) to reach the 1Kpsi level already in the Discovery tank and then hear the Click of the Air Valve opening. Your pump may take a few less or a few more depending on the design. Don't expect this to shoot like a $$$HIGH$$$ air rifle, but the Discoverys do shoot well enough to kill squirrels, nuisance birds and enjoy a lot of good old plinking.

Things I liked: It took two returns to get one that held air even with the additional cost testing. PA was prompt in providing replacement . But still, three to find one that will hold a charge after testing?

Things I would have changed: External appearance is good, but apparently internal fitting leaves something to be desired.

What others should know: It looks like about 16 shots before the need to recharge. A bit limited but a fair trade for being able to use a hand pump to charge to 2000 psi. Very good accuracy. Loading a bit tedious, but 177 cal. Probably worth the trouble I went through.

Things I liked: This rifle is light and shoots great. I think after a few more rounds and a good cleaning the accuracy will improve.To me it seams to have as much power as the Hatsan long rifle at 2/3 the pressure.

What others should know: A better trigger assembly.
