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 is a very great rifle , light easy to shoot , the pump works great Things I would have changed:its loud but i like it What others should know:the pump is hard if your not 150lbs i have to put all my weight on it when im close to 2,000 psi and i cant pump my dads syn rod to full capacity of 3,000psi
Things I liked:Very accurate, Easy to fill with the hand pump, lightweight. Good pump, holds up very well Things I would have changed:Trigger, it is about as bad as a trigger can get. Your groups will be quite large until u master it. What others should know:Move the barrel band up to about 4 inches from the muzzle brake. It helps groups a lot. Get the Trigger mod from Alliance Hobby, it is so much better than the stock trigger.
Things I liked:Light weight, multiple shoots one one fill, not to difficult to fill with hand pump. Things I would have changed:Quality control. 1st rifle had reamer chatter, open sights were not usable, would not group at 15'. 2nd shoot better groups but still unacceptable. 3rd rifle shoot 1" group @ 35yds with the JSB 18.13gr pellet. As stated in the review, trigger pull is poor and you will have to struggle with it to get decent groups. What others should know:The Pyramid tech (Stacey) was very patient and helpful. She contacted Crosman who sent me the second rifle which I returned for the third.
Open sight unusable, strike 1. Trigger strike 2. Multiple range trips, 2 exchanges, strike 3. The only reason I'm giving 3 stars is because support from pyramid is great and manufacturing quality is beyond their control.
Is it normal for the Discovery to leak some air out of the back of the Bolt when firing. My gun is still pretty new but I have only been to able to get 1.5 inch groups at 15 yards rested.
erika from USA:
No, I would suggest having it looked at. There may be something wrong with it
tony from USA asked:
how many decibels is the benjamin discovery?
Luis from USA:
at max power between 110+ DB.
Kou from USA asked:
ok so this is Tyler Answer to someone else question... "My Discoveries have always favored JSB pellets. The 18.13 grain in .22 always shot very well." What about cal .177? what are a better choice brand and pellets type (by type mean is pointed, hollow, destroyer, wad cutter, ect.)
Luis from USA:
To make things easy for you, just buy the Benjamin Pellet sampler, has I think 25 of 6-8 different pellet types.
