2000 round report

Post by leverjc » Sat Aug 21, 2021 9:30 pm

About six months ago I laid out a couple hundred bucks for a Benjamin model 392 multi pump because it reminded me of the one I had when I was a kid. The Williams peep sight and the pellet trap cost me about another bill.

The rifle doesn.t like Vortex pellet as well as Crossman Premiers. The vortex pellets seemed like I was cutting them every time I closed the bolt. They would through flyers and just were not that accurate. The Crossman's are super accurate in this gun. I have never benched tested it but off my Bog sticks it will shoot one ragged whole at 30 feet.

I wish it had a better trigger, for a pellet gun it isn't to heavy but has some creep (I am spoiled by the 2.5lb triggers on my lever guns). I don't care for the high comb on the stock but I have adjusted.

It has been a great investment as I can cheaply shoot everyday at the indoor range (hallway) and it has improved my Lever Silhouette shooting.

Thanks for that great 2000 round report leverjc. I'm glad you enjoy your 392. I like mine. They are very accurate with the right pellet. The Williams Peep sight was a nice addition. I like your "indoor range" too. Very nice.

Good for you. We have some vintage 397Ps that we shoot and have benched. A couple are PCP accurate at 30 yards. Check some of the air gun forums for trigger mods on these current Benjamin pumpers. These classic pumpers are still very popular and a great way to get into air gunning without spending the big bucks.
