Benjamin 397 pump pellet rifleI purchased the rifle a month ago. It is to replace my 35 year old original, which is in need of a rebuild. The quality, fit , finish, and materials is excellent. I didn't care much for the plastic trigger guard but it serves it's purpose. The rest of the rifle is true to the original and shoots just as well. The price was pretty stout compared to the newer rifles on the market but it is built of real steel, brass, and wood. There is a bare minimum of plastic that seems to be prevalent in the newer rifles. I hope that this one lasts as long as it's predecessor.
Can't tell from the pics... Can a scope be mounted to this rifle? Thanks.

Can you pump this Crossman Benjamin 397 more than once for more power. I need a good multi-pump .177 Cal. for coons, cats, possums and skunks.
Asked by: TEG1
The Crosman Benjamin 397 Pump Rifle can be pumped more than once. However, it will not be good for racoons or possums. We recommend the Benjamin Prowler for the purposes in which you tend to use an air rifle.
