Product Description

Product Description

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.... Classic multi-pump pneumatic that's ideal for hunting small game....


Timeless performance and dependable accuracy have kept this rifle on the favorites list for years. This .22 caliber multi pump pneumatic features a sleek and lightweight American hardwood Monte Carlo stock and fully rifled brass barrel. With velocities up to 685 fps this rifle is perfect for small game and pests but equally as good for back yard target practice. Fully adjustable sights will help you zero in on your target or you can use the B272 intermount to attach a scope.

I'm the grumpy old man. I needed a air gun that was fun to shoot, good for target practice and get rid of destructive squirrels and crows. First, I tried a break barrel 1000fps 177 cal. It did not shoot straight and vibration was annoying. Next, I tried a 177 cal. CO2 rifle six shot. I could throw the pellets harder than that thing would shoot. Then I tried a 22 cal. CO2 pistol that also had good reviews. Good shooting little gun, but so loud that it sounded almost like a 357. Out of respect for the neighbors, I don't use it. All these guns plus a couple of BB guns are now buried in my closet, probably never to be shot again. Then I finally decided to try the Crosman Benjamin 392. People this is THE pellet gun. Shoots hard, shoots straight right out of the box. Looks nice and built well. Fills everything I expected of it. The only slight negative thing I have, it is a little hard to pump. You might consider this if you are purchasing for a small framed lady, young person or grumpy old, old person. Hope this helps.

I purchased my Benjamin 392 (.22 caliber) air rifle in 2010. This rifle is a companion to my Benjamin 397 (.177 caliber) and my Sheridan Blue Streak CB9 (.20 caliber) air rifles.

I am gratified that the Benjamin 392 quality is still on par with my older air rifles I purchased in 1990 prior to Crosman acquiring Benjamin/Sheridan. Crosman has maintained the Benjamin/Sheridan tradition and reputation of making a good quality, reasonably priced, reliable, and durable air rifle.

In addition to being made in the U.S., the stock and forearm are made of walnut-stained hardwood. The rifle barrel and plunger tube are brass and the bolt is chromed. My Benjamin 392 now has a plastic crossbolt style safety built into the trigger guard (AKA Lawyer Trigger), unlike the 2 older rifles which have steel trigger guards and tang safeties. Like my 2 older rifles, the Benjamin 392 is powerful, reliable, well made, accurate and trouble free. The rifle has heft without feeling heavy. The rifle is solid and tight. No rattles/loose fitting parts.

The rifle's included open sights are adequate. There is a rear aperture sight available, from Williams/Air Venturi, made specifically for the Benjamin/Sheridan variable pump rifle's pre-drilled and tapped receivers. This upgrade is an easy, affordable installation. The aperture sight greatly improves my accuracy over the standard sights equipped with these rifles. I put a dab of florescent orange paint on the tip of the front sight blade to see the sight easier through the rear aperture sight ring. If you want to scope the rifle, I recommend a pistol scope with a long eye relief, mounted further down the barrel, so the breech is still open to load a pellet easily with your fingers.

Verified Purchase
The Benjamin 392 air rifle is accurate and well made, and I'm happy to say, right here in the USA. Both front and rear sights are metal, the rear being fully adjustable for windage and elevation. You can add a Williams Peep Sight easily as the barrel is pre-drilled from the factory to accept it, or there are a couple options to mount a scope. For me, keeping it simple is best, and I find it perfect as is. After sighting in and using the open sights, I have no problem blasting holes in the bottom of a soup can that is 2-3/4 inches in diameter, at 102 ft(34 yds) with only six pumps, that is impressive! I'm sure with a scope you could do better, but that's good for me. Right now I'm using Crosman Premier hollow points - does well with these or the regular Premier domed. What a difference from the springer rifles I've used. There's no need for a special hold, and NO annoying twang and vibration when it fires. It has a nice American hardwood stock and the finish on mine is decent despite a couple of small flaws that aren't worth complaining about. The barrel is rifled, made of brass and has a black outside coating that you can scratch off if you are not careful. I love the bolt action and how efficiently the pellets load in the chamber. The trigger pull may be a tad heavy for some, but I don't mind it enough to change it, there are mods available online if you feel the need to tweak. This is no toy; being a .22 cal. It hits hard and has a nice solid feel to it, just the right size and weight to carry with you all day. The only plastic on the rifle is the trigger guard and the butt on the end of the stock, which I would have preferred be more rubberized, but it all seems quality and has taken accidental blows without a problem.Read more ›

The Benjamin 392 is at the top of its class in terms of looks, quality and power for multi-pump air rifles. Its hardwood stock makes it a great 5.5 pound weapon. I recommend this more for hunting/pest control than target shooting. Only 8 pumps are required but the cocking effort is measured at 35 pounds! So for just targets 3-5 pumps will do it. 685fps (with light weight pellets) its relatively slow but delivers 14fpe with a .22 caliber pellet. Not bad. This is a short 35'' rifle but recommended for adult shooters. It does feature front and near iron sights but they are AWFUL! if you get this gun you MUST buy a scope with it because you could not be more inaccurate with just the iron sights. trust me. the trigger is crisp, the rifle is not too loud, has a rifled barrel, looks great, works great and has a cool bolt action. Depending on your liking, this can be an amazing pellet rifle or a little too much.

SCOPE information: there are two places on this rifle to mount a scope. You can mount a pistol scope over the forearm or a rifle scope over the bolt action like normal rifles. I strongly recommend the pistol scope because it gives you long eye relief and if you put a rifle scope on it pumping the rifle becomes much harder and more awkward to hold. For pistol scope: you will need 11mm 3/8 dovetails mounts. (Crosman B272 to be exact). 1'' rings. and any kind of PISTOL scope for example a 4x32mm. (make sure its a pistol scope though)

Pellets: this obviously takes .22 caliber pellets. It is very accurate with Crosman premier hollow points. A good light weight pellet would be the Crosman lead-free pellets. Good for hunting are the crow magnum and JSb exact pellets because they deliver good power.
