I have just added the Benjamin/Sheridan 392 to my airgun arsenal. I'm extremely happy with the pinpoint accuracy that is delivered by my new Benji! Shooting from my basement range at 10 yards with sand bags, I've produced 1/8" to 1/4" groups of five, with Crosman Premiers and Gamo Hunter .22 cal. Benjamin/Sheridan is being extremely conservative by advertising 1/2" groups at the same distance! This rifle packs a hard hitting punch and he's not fully broken in yet.
My chronograph gives me the following data:
Crosman Premier: Avg. 636.3 f.p.s. = 12.8 f.p.e.
Gamo Hunter: Avg. 628.0 = 13.4 f.p.e.
JSB Exact: Avg. 618.5 = 13.5 f.p.e. (muzzle energy) All three pellets give good accuracy but the Crosman Premier shines. This rifle is a definate contender in the lower magnum air rifle class.
