    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: Powerful when fully charged. Multiple shot feature an asset when hunting

Things I would have changed: That said,I'm afraid it goes downhill from there. It is what it is but in my opinion, not what its said to be. I am a competition shooter in other disciplines and there is no way to get good groups with a cheap harsh plastic trigger like the one on this rifle. I have ordered an upgraded one from Alliance Hobby, but haven't received it yet. The bolt tries to open when you fire and you get a small blast of air in your face. I put a rubber band around it which helps but do I need to tell you what that looks like. The stock is completely functional but somewhat crude by my standards. I can see sanding marks where it wasn't properly finish sanded. An airgun in this class I test out to 50 yards. Contrary to what I had read before purchasing, (inch and sub inch groups at 50 yards) I haven't come close. I have tried JBS, H and N, RWS, Beeman, and Crosman. Groups at 50 yards are well over 2 inches. I have springers that can shoot close to an inch.

What others should know: The number of shots from a charge is misleading. You may get 15 or 20 at close range but only 7 or 8 at 50 yards before your pellet begins to drop. From a full charge, fire 10 shots it takes about 35 pumps to recharge. 20 shots takes about 75. The Benjamin pump is not overly hard to use however as one well known writer said, he could pump it up one hand while sitting (I don't think so) another exaggeration. I know this is supposed to be an entry level PCP. So far I have invested over $600 to outfit this airgun and don't see it. Maybe I should have invested it in another nice springer. I have a sizeable airgun collection however, this is my first PCP and perhaps my last. What I have told you are the FACTS, not some writers B.S.

Things I liked: I love the fact that this gun has a pressure gauge on it. That way i know before shooting as mine will sit from time to time before using.

Things I would have changed: Bolt action is pretty loose and slips open pretty easily.

What others should know: When i first received this gun i tried to pump it up and just heard air leaking from the barrel. I was originally disappointed and thought i would have to send it in for repair, but after reading some blogs, I found when it has no pressure in it you need to cock it for it to pressurize. The instructions state to make sure gun is not cocked or loaded before pressurizing.

  • Ken from USA asked:

    Can anyone recommend a diopter rear sight that will work with the factory front sight and not run out of adjustments between 10 and 25 yards?

    • Paul from USA asked:

      How long can I leave my disco cocked and ready to shoot? Thank You!

      • byron from USA:

        Indefinitely, no harm in leaving it pressured up or cocked. I wouldn't leave it loaded with pellet, purely for safety reasons.

    • John from USA asked:

      What would you say the maximum range is I can get a 1inch grouping?

      • byron from USA:

        My girlfriend shots 1" groups ctc at 50yds. Benjamin discovery and jsb pellets 14.3 grain.
