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.
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.
The Discovery is made in America.

Things I liked:Since I got this "Discovery" my spring and gas-piston rifles are display items. VERY accurate for this price level. It is "Henry-rifle" size & lightweight. However, please see "I would change" below Things I would have changed:Why isn't the barrel braced closer to the front sight? The reservoir is very rigid, yet the barrel is free to be deflected side to side past the mid-brace. I am tooling a small brace for the barrel and yes; I know NOT to clamp onto the air-tank (reservoir) too tightly, don't want to compromise a 2,000 psi tube. What others should know:See "change" above and I can't help wondering why Crosman/Benjamin didn't address this; the barrel ahead of the mid-brace could get bent fairly easily. This is a top-notch .22 and I hate to nit-pick, it is perfect for the money otherwise.
Things I liked:This rifle is very lite and handles real well. Very accurate and powerful. Things I would have changed:The loading process with a scope and tall rings are slow and cumbersome. What others should know:Overall pretty decent setup
Things I liked:I LOVE this gun. I have set aside all the rest of my guns to shoot this one. Well worth the money. Everyone shout have one. Things I would have changed:I wish it had a pellet magazine. and make the loading area a little bigger for shooting longer lead-free pellets. I have not complains. What others should know:in my shooting it have a 2-3 inch drop at 5 -8 yards. This is my first PCP gun. I know now what the hype is all about.
Is there a magazine that's available for this gun?
Gerald from USA asked:
Does the stock on this rifle have enough meat to install a swivel stud such as is sold on this site?
Tony from USA asked:
what is the Best Pellet for this gun.. best i mean accurate and light high grain i see a 32.4 grain and 28.4 but what is better light weight or high weight is a basic Crosman 22. pellet good . H&N has good ones. please tell me what it best for a discovery. this is my first PCP gun. Yes, i am kinda clueless or should I say i have a lot of questions. But i know being new to PCP is not a bad thing. I was told the Discovery was one of the best for new people to a PCP type gun.
Tyler from USA:
My Discoveries have always favored JSB pellets. The 18.13 grain in .22 always shot very well.
David from USA asked:
Does this rifle come with a standard dovetail mount for scopes?
Tony from USA:
11mm scopes. unless i am wrong in what it says.
TERRY from USA asked:
Can this rifle be stored for any length of time with full or less than full air pressure?
Tyler from USA:
Yes, you want to leave air in it. Storing full for shorter time frames is okay but I would leave it half full or at 1500 psi for longer periods of time.
John from USA asked:
do you have to license a muzzle brake on an air rifle?
Carlos from USA asked:
Does this rifle require an "Artillery Hold" or can you shoot it like a hunting rifle?
Tyler from USA:
It does not need the artillery hold for best accuracy. It does not have any recoil as it is a PCP rifle, not a springer or gas ram.
Jeff from USA asked:
is there a recommended muzzle break for this rifle?
Tyler from USA:
We do not carry any muzzle breaks for the rifle but you can search the internet for muzzle breaks and you will turn up a lot of good info.
