Things I liked: Although I am now a springer enthusiast, this is the gun of my youth. I decided to purchase a 392 fifty-five years after I learned to shoot on its forebear, a Benjamin Comp on my late uncle's farm during summers working there as a mere lad. The familiar "clack" of the pump handle takes me back more than five decades, but the report brings me back to reality that this is the same solid pumper of yore; light, simple, consistent, recoil-free, and a great work out for the upper body.
Things I would have changed: The fit of the pump handle could be better executed. The aft end of the handle is more than an eighth inch lower than the rest of the stock's bottom line. No big deal, but the line of the rifle is ruined by this inattention to detail. More of a rebound stop than the little synthetic button in the wooden handle is needed. The "clack," from walnut on metal, while nostalgic, would alert vermin to their potential demise after the first round. Otherwise, why change perfection; it is what it is and has been!
What others should know: I mounted the Williams Peep that is made for the Benjamin/Sheridan rifles. It improves the sight picture and accuracy over the simplistic Crosman rear notch. The peep ring is a bit large,and I may try other rings that I have in its place or buy a Merit Disc. I have sighted the 392 in at my 10 M basement range at 6 pumps. Shooting 10 M Rifle roundels, at 4 pumps, it is one-half of the black target circle LOW and at 8 pumps, it is one-half of the circle HIGH! It was purely coincidence, but works out very nicely - one adjusts the sight picture accordingly; raise the POA to the top of the black bull on 4 pumps, lower to the bottom on 8 and place dead center on 6! Windage is so centered that adjusting it from the center position can be more of a chase of one's head and eye alignment than the sight itself as it seems it is off, if at all (really), by the width of the front blade. In other words, it is dead on not I.
Things I liked: It says Benjamin on it and is made of metal and wood.
Things I would have changed: I would fire the people who finished the wood. There is a thumb sized spot on mine where during finish someone set it down or grabbed it and didn't redo it. I have a finishing department in my cabinetry shop so I know a thing or two. They also don't bother sanding some areas and it shows. The pump arm was sanded so sloppily it is slanted off to one side and fitted so poorly the arm does not line up with the stock. About a 1/4'' to the side and about a 1/4'' too deep. Also they pin the pump arm after they finish it so those two holes on the side of the arm have raw wood with no stain. So many simple things could be done to make these rifles awesome but it takes someone with some passion putting them together.
What others should know: No pride seems to have been taken in producing this air rifle. The box it comes in says "Up to 800 fps" But the site has it around six hundred and something.
Things I liked: I mounted a cheap scope on it and I am amazed how accurate a $170.00 gun shoots.
Things I would have changed: Nothing.
What others should know: Can't go wrong buying this one. It will even build your pec muscles if you shoot it everyday. Fun gun.

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?
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.
What scope mount/rings are used in the video? Are they still available?
Are the barrels still brass or are they steel
