  • Gary from USA asked:

    What Year did the Benjamin 392 get gold stenciling

    • Stanley from USA:

      Oh you mean the warning label towards the end of the barrel, and model number and caliber by the breach? I must admit its the first time I've noticed it, must be something new with all the hoopla about firearms and safety?LOL.

    • Tyler from USA:

      Not sure what you mean?

  • Gary from USA asked:

    what is the site radius of stock iron sites. and what is the site radius with Williams peep sight installed

    • Gary from USA:

      I just received my 392 sight radius for stock sights is 14", the Williams sight radius is 21"

  • Gary from USA asked:

    Is this a right handed stock, is the Cheek Riser more predominant on the right side of the stock?

    • Gary from USA:

      392 can be shot by both right and left handed shooters

    • Tyler from USA:

      No, the stock is pretty much totally ambi

  • Gary from USA asked:

    Are these still made in USA? I was looking at the Seneca Dragonfly But its made in China I WONT by Chinese Anything PERIOD!!!!!!!

    • Gary from USA:

      the 392 is Made in USA

    • Tyler from USA:

      As far as I know, yes they are still made here

  • robi from USA asked:

    I have an old school version of this rifle, when I load a B.B. or pellet with gun pointing down it just rolls right out of the barrel. Do you know why that is or if there is any way to fix it?

    • Paul from USA:

      A B.B. is approximately .177 I don't know of any .22 B.B.

    • Paul from USA:

      I wouldn't ever use steel B.B. in this brass barrel. I done think this rifle was ever made to shoot bb.A .22 pellet shouldn't be able to slid down the barrel, you are using .22 pellets i hope.

  • Glen from USA asked:

    What scope mount/rings are used in the video? Are they still available?

  • martin from USA asked:

    Are the barrels still brass or are they steel

    • Stanley from USA:

      Yes. Brass.

  • Adrian from USA asked:

    What is the maximum range that a new 392 is still accurate

    • Stanley from USA:

      Some reviewers are saying 40 to 60 yards , yes accurate. Depends on the shooter and the pellet?

  • Darren from USA asked:

    can this rifle be purchased and shipped to california?

    • Stanley from USA:

      Yes.

  • Reno from USA asked:

    Does anyone know what kind finish is on this the stock?

    • Gary from USA:

      Walnut mine is very nice finish and stock and fore grip are matched well

    • Stanley from USA:

      Walnut.

  • Dejon from United States of America asked:

    Is there any way to make this air rifle more quiet? Many people compare the sound to a .22

    • Gary from USA:

      Received my 392 May 2018, It is much Quieter than a 22LR

    • Bruce from USA:

      You can actually purchase a moderator adapter and attach a moderator. I found one on E-Bay.

    • Stanley from USA:

      I have the older model 342 and theres really no way to make it quieter . Mine is quieter than a 22 .

  • Scott from USA asked:

    I found this gun to be way more accurate if you do the artillery hold. I know that hold is for springers, but seems necessary on my 392. Did anyone else notice this?

    • Mike from USA:

      Whatever works best. But since there is no recoil you dont need the artillery hold.

    • Stanley from USA:

      If the artillery hold works for you by all means use it i say. I don't use it with mine and seems accurate to me.

  • Strobe from USA asked:

    Are these still made in USA (year 2015)?

    • Stanley from USA:

      Yes.

  • Charles from USA asked:

    What are the triggers like on the 392? Pretty heavy??

    • Gary from USA:

      bought mine in may 2018 trigger is smooth, Not to heavy at all, it is a very descent trigger

    • Bruce from USA:

      It's definitely a heavier pull on the trigger. Not great.

    • Stanley from USA:

      I can't speak for this model but mine is the 342 the 70's version seems crisp and predictable .

  • Nick from USA asked:

    what is the biggest thing you can hunt with this?

    • Mike from USA:

      I have taken raccoons, oppossums and woodchucks easily at 30 yards. Worry less about power and more on accuracy. I shoot jsb 15.89s and 5 pumps. Plenty of power if u can make a headshot.

    • Stanley from USA:

      Squirrels?

  • Nick from USA asked:

    What is the biggest animal you can hunt with this gun?

    • Mark from USA:

      depends on the distance. Squirrels?

  • boyce from USA asked:

    what type of peep sight for a older model 392

    • John G from USA:

      If it is drilled and tapped on the right side behind the loading port(breach) use the Williams 5D-SH...the SH stands for Sheridan.

  • Henry from USA asked:

    Contrary to the.pyramid website instructions, Crosman on the phone states that it no longer necessary to pump the Benjamin 392 once before air rifle storage. Why does Pyramid continue its pump advice?

    • Mike from USA:

      Still a good idea. By putting a pump of air in the valve will make sure the check valve is seated firmly and that may help keeping foreign debris of finding its way into the valve. I have old pumpers from 1957 that have never needed a valve repair. I always leave 1 pump while storing gun.

    • Beth from USA:

      Pyramid cares about it's customers. And Crosman would be happy to sell you new valve seals and other charges to repair your rifle.

  • Quincy from USA asked:

    Will this rifle have the power and accuracy it takes to put down an English Starling? These birds have a habit of killing the birds that feed at my home. They will also distroy the nests they find. I have a TR77 Nitro Piston that has the take down power but that rifle is not consistent when it comes to accuracy. I want a .22 caliber pellet for these evil fowl but IL restricts me to under 700fps .22 caliber rifles.

    • Mike from USA:

      Plenty of power for starlings. I have taken many raccoons and similiar sized game with 5 pumps. Humanely.

    • Stanley from USA:

      These rifles are fairly accurate at most distances and it should take out those english starlings with no problem. I have taken out a big rock chuck at over 50 yards with my 342 benjamin. The 392 replaced the 342 but is basically the same unit.

  • David from USA asked:

    My 392 shoots so far to the left that I've run out of adjustment on my Williams peep sight. Does anyone else have issues like this? Did I get a lemon?

    • Timothy from USA:

      Try taking a q-tip with paint stripper and cleaning out the first inch to inch and a half of the front of the barrel. Benjamin paints the barrels without blocking the bore so paint affects flight path. Try that and inspect the bore and maybe run a couple swabs through it. Should be shooting 1.5 inch groups off hand like mine is now after that same treatment.

  • Ron from USA asked:

    Can this rifle be left fully pumped for up to an hour for hunting without losing pressure or causing damage?

    • Timothy from USA:

      Yes. It's actually recommended that you leave ONE pump in the gun to keep the seals in tip top shape.

    • Lionel J from USA:

      Yes. I have done this many timesaver the years.

  • brian from USA asked:

    I am a novice air gunner and I am trying to overcome the long eye relief by maybe getting a shorter stock, do they exist and if so where?

    • Stanley from USA:

      You can actually cut off an inch at a time until you get to the sweet spot. It can be done on any stock?

  • Gary from USA asked:

    Is this still made in the USA?

    • Stanley from USA:

      Yes still made in the USA.

  • John from USA asked:

    With a brass barrel, what is the expected life of this rifle?

    • Gary from USA:

      when I clean the barrel I use string trimmer line and pull a few cloth patchs with silicone oil

    • Mike from USA:

      I have old Benjamins from the late 50s and never cleaned the barrels. You run more of a risk messing up the groves/lands with a metal cleaning rod.

    • Timothy from USA:

      The linkage and seals will give up way before you have to worry about the barrel.

    • Stanley from USA:

      Unknown, i've had the model 342 since 1975 still in perfect shape.

  • Carlos from USA asked:

    Does this rifle need an "Artillery Hold" or can it be shot like a hunting rifle?

    • Mike from USA:

      Since there is no recoil, you do not need to use the artillery hold. That hold is for recoiling spring or air pistons airguns.

    • Scott from USA:

      I found my 392 to be a lot more accurate with the artillery hold. Give it a try and see for yourself.

    • JimPysht from USA:

      Use the Artillery Hold for this PCP - at least for sighting-in. Do NOT do this for a Springer.

    • Val from USA:

      No, because it does not use a spring to push the pistol to propel the pellet out of the barrel. It's multi-pump pneumatic (kind of like a PCP only you are the pump :-)
