Things I liked: 3 pumps is plenty for 10 meter shooting (dime size pattern using pistol scope as below). 8 pumps is powerful enough to assure 1 inch accuracy at 30 yards with the scope. I paired this gun with a BSA Edge pistol scope (BSA-PS2x20 mounted via UTG 1" Medium Airgun Rings (RGPM-25M2) on a set of 3/8" Benjamin dovetail Intermounts (CR-B272). (all from Pyramid) This gives perfect eye relief and accuracy if you mount the rig directly over the rear iron sight which does not have to be removed.
What others should know: The wood finish is greatly improved if you give it a light rub with very fine steel wool. Finish off with any liquid furniture polish. The Williams 64 peep sight said to work with this gun does not adjust adequately for windage or height. ("bottoms out" both ways before correct settings can be made). Don't buy it unless you are shooting over 25 yards regularly. With the BSA Edge pistol scope this gun is a winner and the scope stays zeroed with no issues from the pumping vibrations. All good.
Things I liked: great...wanted one for years...took a minute to get it dialed in but is a great air rifle.... classic design will last the rest of my life and then some.
Things I liked: These guns are great airguns. I have owned several over the years and everyone of them will easily group as many shots as you shoot inside a quarter at 25 yards. They can be a little pellet fussy, the current one I own likes H&N 8.64 grn FTT or JSB 8.44 grn Diabolo Exacts. With other pellets I have tried the grouping expands. When I shot 7 pellets over my chronograph I noticed with the JSB and the H&N pellets an extreme spread of 6 fps. (8 pumps) This consistency adds to the shot grouping. If you get this gun put a good scope on it you will be impressed.
Things I would have changed: The trigger isnt what it used to be. When I first started to own this series of benjamins the trigger was all metal and was smooth and crisp. But now they put the crossman trigger on it, which effects the shot grouping. These guns will group all day long inside a quarter at 25 yards, but the old ones with the better trigger would group all day long inside a dime at 25 yards.
What others should know: To put a scope on this gun you will need to order the special scope mounts. The mounts are well worth it. I feel that a better scope with higher magnification brings out the full potential of these guns.

Do these new models ( 392 397) have the brass valve I've been reading about on forums?Supossedly Crossman has gone back to brass because of corrosion.
What year did the Benjamin 392 get the Gold stenciling?
Yeah the warning label and model and caliber info?
brass barrel...does that mean no BB allowed? Forget...I got my answer from Dave C. on chat. NO BBs on a brass rifled barrel.
