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: I have nothing but good to say about the Disco .177 I received from PA. Major complaint I hear all the time about the Disco is that it is LOUD. And yes, on HPA it is, but I am running on Co2 and it is as quiet as my 2260. The only thing I did to get a great shot count and flat string was to change out the striker spring with a Challenger spring. Case closed and shooting at an average of 650 for 50 shots. I am looking forward to shooting again on HPA as the rifle was smoking pellets at 950 fps+. Accuracy is fantastic on air orCo2.

Things I would have changed: If it came with the M-rod trigger, this would be a best seller to the end of time! As it is and for the price, I can live with the trigger as it is!

What others should know: It is loud on HPA, so expect it. Running on Co2 quiets this puppy down a lot, but don;t expect it to be like the Marauder as it is not shrouded. Get the 10 for 10 and be assured you are getting a good one. Mone likes the JSB RS Diablo 7.33 grain pellets the best and have pulled off 5-shot groups of less than 1/8" @ 25 yards on a calm day. The light pellets will run away from you on a windy day though when shooting at the slower Co2 speeds.

Things I liked: I like the wood stock, it feels good and points easy, I found nothing shoddy about this rifle, it holds air perfect. The trigger is much better than I expected. it is plenty powerful, chronograph reading from Pyramyd Air of 10 shots was 926 to 834 FPS. Accurace seems very good. I am glad I bought it.

Things I would have changed: The rifle is very nice except for it is too noisy for in-town backyard shooting. would be nice to have as a bundle upgrade something like a TKO muzzle brake. Otherwise nothing.

What others should know: I installed a 4x16x40mm AO Centerpoint scope using the high leapers UTG rings, that gave me plenty of room to roll a .22 pellet into the breach trough. I also installed a TKO 6 1/2 inch muzzle brake, it is still a little loud but not near what it was. I put out the extra $10. for the 10 for 10 test, I think it was well worth it to receive a near perfect rifle. I really like this gun.

Things I liked: Why I never purchased a "Disco" after all my years of airgunning and collecting, hunting, target shooting etc....I don't know. I finally just got one a couple of weeks ago. For me it is in some ways the perfect air gun. Compact and light, can carry out in the field all day, beautifully accurate, easily powerful enough for any small game, looks great, and simple to pump with a hand pump.

Things I would have changed: Shouldve gotten one sooner. Just wish there was a multi-shot cartridge like the Marauder models.

What others should know: You'll love this gun. PCP's always annoyed me because of the constant need to recharge. Now it seems my springers are collecting a bit more dust.

  • Dennis from USA asked:

    What air pressure does the Discovery operate on 3000 or 2000?

    • Dennis from USA:


    • Mark from USA:

      2,000 PSI

  • Nick from USA asked:

    what do I need with this gun to start shooting?

    • Mark from USA:

      just a high pressure pump. You can choose one on the PCP Hookup tab.

  • Nick from USA asked:

    Do I only need the hand pump to make the gun work, besides pellets and oil?
