To maintain the seals for a long time, remember to put one pump of air into the gun when putting it away after shooting. Whether you plan to shoot again the next day or not again for another 2 years, always put one pump into the gun when you're done shooting!

This air rifle has no scope rail or dovetail. If you buy one of the scopes or dot sights listed in the accessories link, you will need either the Crosman 3/8" Intermount or the Air Venturi Weaver/Picatinny Intermount.

An American classic! The Benjamin 392 .22 cal. rifle is a multi-pump pneumatic. The hardwood Monte Carlo stock is sleek and lightweight. The rifled brass barrel is finished in black and sends pellets out the muzzle up to 685 fps. You can vary the velocity by the number of pumps (up to 8). The 392 has the power and accuracy to take small game and pests, but you'll find yourself picking up this rifle every time you want to plink or shoot spinners.

Although this gun has been made for decades, the manufacturer continues to put extra fine details in the rifle, such as a swelling in the forearm to make it easier to pump and a fully adjustable rear sight. You can put a scope on the 392, but you'll want to use the B272 intermount to do that.

Don't forget to click on the AMMO link for a list of recommended pellets. The ACCESSORIES link has a list of scopes, fun targets and safety gear you'll need.

Things I liked: Solid, very accurate, affordable pest controller. I use it to thin the starlings, squirrels, and eurasion collared pigeons that flock to my feeders. If I do my part, it does the job. Reasonable noise, nickel sized groups at 12 yards. I use JSB Heavy Diablos.

Things I would have changed: The trigger is a bit heavy. It was a bit rough when new, smoothing after a couple hundred shots. Not a serious issue.

What others should know: When you mount a scope, the scope is very high(almost 3 inches) above the bore, which causes elevation issues as your range changes. I have it sighted in for exactly 12 yards, and five yards on either side I need to adjust the hold

Things I liked: Like how light weight it is compared to a nitro piston. Have wanted something with open sights that are not plastic for a while. It is usable for a lefty because it is not shouldered when the bolt is operated. This is intended to be a working rifle and not for plinking for hours. It is easy to drop the .22 pellet into the large chamber.

Things I would have changed: That Monti Carlo stock is too high for me to line up the sights unless I rotate the stock 45 degrees, nearly horizontal, to get my face low enough. I came close to selling it an hour after I unboxed it. I placed a 1/16" shim above the trigger group which lowered the cheek piece nearly 1/2". Now I can use the iron sights. I don't understand how this design survived so many decades. I can just about rub the finish off the stock by hand and it looks like a piece of sanded pine. After a few hours I can see bare wood in spots. A coat of finish shouldn't be too expensive for Benjamin. Fiber optic sights would be wonderful, for me the black front sight is invisible indoors. I have not been able to take it outdoors during the day yet to see how the iron looks.

What others should know: Out of the box it is hard to pump it more than twice. It has to be braced to get past three pumps. After 20 shots it is still difficult to get past three and eight pumps are nearly impossible. Pellgun oil has not made a difference. I am hoping that it smooths out. There is definitely paint in the barrel that I will have to take care of once I can shoot it beyond 10 feet to check the sights and accuracy.

  • Phil from USA asked:

    I have had a Benjamin 392 for approximately 3 years. Shoulder issues with pumping it have limited the frequency I can fire it. From the time I purchased it I have always pumped it one time before putting it away. I noticed that after a few weeks it had lost the air pressure from the one pump. I thought it might be normal to lose pressure over time. Three days ago I pumped it once and today the air was gone. I put in 5 pumps and it fired ok. I am giving this rifle to my grandson for his 9th birthday in September but want to give it to him trouble free. Any suggestions as to what I should do?

    • Mark from USA:

      You need to get your 392 serviced. There has been an interior seal failure.

  • Juan Carlos from USA asked:

    Is it gonna be available again?

    • Mark from USA:

      The model 392 has been discontinued.

  • 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.
