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 397 .177 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 screaming at 800 fps! You can vary the velocity by the number of pumps (up to 8). The 397 is ideal for plinking, target shooting, slapping spinners and popping paper targets. In fact, we predict this gun will become one of your favorites.

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 397, 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.

    • Stanley from USA:

      Correct.

  • Michael from USA asked:

    can i get replacement parts?

    • Stanley from USA:

      Yes from crosman.

  • Tommy from Hong Kong asked:

    In my place hong Kong we can own only power less than 2 joules .can you reduce the power if I want this model 397 .just for collection and short range paper target indoor.thx

    • Stanley from USA:

      This is a multi-pump rifle so theres no real way to reduce the power it makes , unless you only pump it 2 or 3 times to limit F.P.S..
