An American classic gets an update with the synthetic-stocked Benjamin 392S/397S  multi-pump pneumatic Air rifle series.


Although it's been a part of the Benjamin air-rifle lineup for decades, the company has continued adding improvements like a swelling in the forearm to make it easier to pump and a fully adjustable rear sight, for example. Its sleek, Monte Carlo style stock has been reintroduced in a synthetic option that's durable and all-weather rated for years of reliable accuracy.


The 392S/397S series features a rifled brass barrel painted black. It's a bolt-action air rifle with which the shooter may control the muzzle velocity depending on the number of pumps. And, although these guns are scopeable, the B272 intermount is required to do so.


Ideal for everything from small-game hunting and pesting, to plinking and target practice, the Benjamin 392S/397S are accurate, powerful, reliable shooters that are suitable for a variety of tasks and they're built to last and last.

Things I would have changed:

Comb on stock is too high.

Things I liked:

The polymer stock is awesome, very heavy duty, thick, no flex noted when pumping, yet still light weight. The comb on the buttstock is perfect for me because I like to use an optic and the optic mount, (sold separately), sits a little high. I have an older Benjamin 392 with the wood stock and had to get a Bradley cheek rest to bring up the comb height. I paired both my air rifles with a Vortex red dot sight and accuracy is spot on with tight groups at 20 yards with 5 pumps, using Crosman Premier domed ultra magnum 10.5 gr. pellets. It's a little harder to pump after 4 pumps with 5 being as far as I can go until it gets broke in. I love how the pump arm meets up flush with the stock, only drawback is it can pinch your hand if you're not careful. My old 392 has a space between the pump arm and stock which keeps you from pinching your hand, although I would not change the new style because it looks better.

Things I would have changed:

No changes needed. Great design.

What others should know:

Break barrel rifles are easier to cock and load but shooting this rifle is smoother and you can adjust the power by the amount of pumps. 5 stars.

Things I liked:

Extremely durable and beefy build. Accuracy is on point. Feels great in hand and on the shoulder. Great as a plinker or survival gun.

Things I would have changed:

The sights or make the comb adjustable. I personally don't have an issue getting a sight picture as I guess I have a long face that isn't hindered by the high comb, but the height of that comb is going to be a problem for some people. The front post sight is quite high and will also be a problem for some people. As I said, I haven't had any issues myself, but I can absolutely see where this could be a problem for others.

What others should know:

Get ready for a workout as this one is an absolute BEAST to pump. Those with bad shoulders may want try a few different methods or just avoid this altogether. I still love this gun even if it tears up my shoulder to pump it LOL.

  • John from USA asked:

    Has anybody tried shaping/modifying the awkward 'monte carlo' buttstock with a belt sander or angle grinder yet?

    • John from USA asked:

      Could you mount a sling on this pumper? And where would you mount it that wouldn't compromise its action or integrity? It is brass soldered together!

      • Ed from USA asked:

        Is it really brass?

        • Mark from USA answered:

          Yes
