    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: Price Accuracy Ease of fill with hand pump

Things I would have changed: Muzzle report is a bit much with no barrel shroud - TKO muzzle break is a necessity for garden pests in the back yard. With a decent fixed power scope and a TKO brake you can put together a complete PCP setup for under $500 when the sales come up.

What others should know: Don't bother with Polymags or JSBs in the .22. Polymags are accurate enough to hunt with inside 30 yards or so, but are not as accurate as the crosman or JSB Heavy pellets. The cheap tin of Crosman Premier Hollow Points shoots just as well inside of 35 yards as the JSBs. After that the JSB Heavy have a slight advantage. Both the crosman and JSBs will hold dime sized groups at 25 yards, as many times as you pull the trigger (15-20 shot groups) if the fill pressure is maintained.

Things I liked: Everything. I enjoy seeing each round touch one another. And its not as loud as I had first imagined. I haven't yet found a pellet that it doesn't like. I recently tried the JSB assorted tin expecting to find at least one pellet that did not shoot well, but to my surprise all 4 shot tight groups. Perhaps I just got lucky but I got a "springer" in .22 cal. at the same time and I still cannot find a pellet that it likes. The pump is a bit of a challenge for this 85 year old, but it works as advertised.

Things I would have changed: I would like to see P/A show a recommended "buddy" air bottle for this gun. I believe everyone would consider one if it had a decent price tag. I would not change anything else.

What others should know: I believe I read where someone inquired about a sling. For what it's worth, years ago I bought an all purpose sling for my shotgun, with loops at each end (one loop adjustable) that you can slide over each end of the rifle. I put it on my Discovery and it works just fine for carrying over the shoulder. Does not look very stylish but I bet the squirrels won't care.

  • Corey from USA asked:

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

    • Cory from USA asked:

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

      • Val from USA:

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

    • Ray from USA asked:

      How does this gun perform I. Frigid wheather ? I do lots of rabbit hunting and had much success last year with a gas ram break barrel . So I'am a little concerned about what's gonna happen when it's ten bellow zero !will this gun perform well in cold temps ?

      • Brent from USA:

        Otherwise it performed just fine in accuracy and strength.

      • Brent from USA:

        The Valve Assembly Stem broke on mine in frigid weather. Luckily, the stem only costs about a buck fifty so i got two replacements.
