    Built & made in the USA
This version of the Discovery includes the gun and the Benjamin 3-stage hand pump with an attached hose that has a female Foster quick-disconnect fitting on the end. Connect the Foster fitting on the end of the hose to the air reservoir on the rifle.

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


The gun is warrantied for 1 year, but the hand pump has a 90-day warranty.


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/hand pump combo, but it's so easy to pump up that a wispy teenager could do it!

If you prefer to use a scuba tank instead of the hand pump, you'll need a scuba tank adapter with hose and a female quick-disconnect with male threads. The last item already comes with this kit. The adapter fits tanks with a K valve. The air reservoir has a male Foster fitting.

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 gun comes with a hardwood stock (14" length of pull), Williams fiber optic front and rear sights, and a built-in air pressure gauge. Included in the package is a hand pump that's easy to use and very clear on showing you when you've reached maximum operating pressure.

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. A degasser tool lets you quickly and safely exhaust all the high-pressure air (or you can just shoot the air out). 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: This gun is very accurate, I tried out 16 different types of pellets and they all shot very well, only about 4 of them had a group larger than a quarter at 15 yards, and there were a few with groups inside a dime. If you are used to a regular firearm then this gun won't seem loud, every one says it is really loud but I didn't really notice. If you get this gun I would really recommend finding a lot of pellets to try out, I thought the JSB jumbo rs were the best with a group a little smaller than a dime, then I shot the copper coated H&N barracuda pellets and the group was less then the size of a dime.

Things I would have changed: Make the trigger adjustable

What others should know: The gun seems hard the cock but I figured out that the easiest way to cock it is to put your thumb on the part that sticks up to hold the scope and pull back with your thumb and other fingers to load it a lot easier, also, there are no instructions on how to connect the includ d air pump to the gun, so what you do is you pull the ring on the tip of the nozzle of the pump back and slide it on the gun then push it forward to lock it in place, hope this helps.

Things I liked: THE BENJAMIN DISCOVERY IS A LIGHT RIFFLE I GIVE IT A PLUS IN THIS CATAGORY IT;S VERY POWERFUL IT IS ACCURATE FOR WHAT I AM GOING TO USE IT FOR IS HUNTING I LIKE THE 22 CAL.YOU DON;T HAVE TO PUMP THE RIFFLE TO HIGH IN PRESSURE WITH THE HAND PUMP I WISH I HAD THIS RIFFLE 30 YEARS AGO.

Things I would have changed: THE CROSSMAN CORPORATION IS NOT GOING TO CHANGE NOTHING ON THIS GUN THAT WHAT I HEARD FROM THEM THE ONE THING I WOULD LIKE TO CHANGE IS BOLT ACTION SHOULD GO BACK A QUARTER OF AN INCH SO I CAN PUT THE PELLET IN EASERY

What others should know: THE BENJAMIN DISCOVERY IS VERY LOUD THE TRIGGER NEEDS WORK ON BUT THE REST IS UP TO YOU YOU ARE NOT SPENDING A LOT HARD EARNED CASH AND IF THIS IS YOUR VERY FIRST RIFFLE BUY IT YOU WOUN;T BE SORY I LIKE IT WITH A FEW MODIFCATIONS IT;S JOY TO SHOOT

Things I liked: Look, this rifle is probably one of the most customizable, personalizable, modifiable air rifles in existence. If you can find more fun for $200.00 get it. I don't count the pump which you must have as part of the purchase price, just like I don't count the cost of batteries in the price of electronics. This little gem has changed my shooting world. Prior to buying it after much reading and investigating what to get I cant say one bad thing about it. I have recently discovered that it loves JSB Exact Jumbo Heavy 18.13 Gr. pellets. Before I found this out the rifle was fun, now it's a freaking blast to pull out. I'm not able to shoot at great distances yet but the dime sized groupings at 15 yd's is great fun. When I can place a target or object I feel like punching holes into, inside my pellet trap and go to town on it knowing all pellets will end up in the trap because of the accuracy of this rifle that makes for hours of worry free fun in the back yard.

Things I would have changed: Nothin'

What others should know: Some will review this as sounding like a .22 rifle going off. That simply isn't even close to the case. Although it may be kind of noisy ( like a hammer hitting wood) it is nothing like a real fire arm going off. I can fire it in the back yard and my wife says from the front yard it sounds very reasonable, barely audible at times. That would not be the case with a .22 rifle being fired in a neighborhood. Make no mistake this thing has power, it is not a toy. Don't put this in the hands of kids used to playing with their Daisy and think that they are safe to handle it alone.

  • hunter from USA asked:

    alot of people say something is wrong with the barrel and they cant shoot good groups at 50 yards should i be concerned and what do i do if that happens

    • Corey from USA asked:

      Should I get low, medium, or high scope mounting rings for the discovery? I have a leapers 3-9x40 AO.

      • Stanley from USA:

        Use high mounts.

    • Cory from USA asked:

      Is this rifle powerful enough to take out raccoons in .22 caliber at about 20-25 yards?

      • Squirrel terminator. from USA:

        Yes. Once again shot placement is highly need. .22 caliber is perfect for that. But you need a head shot with a brain shot.

      • Val from USA:

        No, but Marauder is. Would still recommend .25 for that.
