    ….  kinda disappointed after i got into a largely unused benjamin 397 carbine – made when benjamin , sheridan , sterling were conglomerate just as crosman acquired them (circa 1990-2)….   ive always wanted one , too , maybe that's why im dismayed with the barrel separation common with these hard clamped rear sights on sheridans , the difficulty in getting the 3" shorter pump arm to act right perhaps due to the leaf spring being in there too hard …   and the then narrow , unasthetic stock….        is anyone else dismayed with the only rocker safety .177 (and only benji carbine) i have heard produced ??     this is the fist first 397c i have ever handled ..   this is the first one ive encountered , and i see alots of benjis and dans..  it's been more elusive than the model 87 , which supremely satisfied.    follow up from this post.   – paul,.      https://www.airgunnation.com/topic/397p-series-397p-397s-397c/

    All I know is I got my Brother a 392 ACP .22 with pistol scope and barrel rings for $250 shipped. 

    If I’d have known the quality of new ones I wouldn’t have bought it at all. It doesn’t even have the 2 bolt cocking low/high power mod as advertised. 

    Very disappointed.

    ………….  the 392's ive had are more powerful , but im talking about that 392 – has safety in the back (tang safety).  but the other later 392pa (with safety on the trigger guard) were not accurate…..   the 392pa is a bigger more sturdy gun – but the barrels really tumped…  i took three or four back to academy where they were $140….  i finally gave up.   i have never had an acp benji pumper.   i remember hearing alot about them – but maybe before that guy became incorporated or what ever happened to pyramyd — i mean ag's of az …   look , they have a mark 2 version now….   https://www.airgunsofarizona.com/BenjaminACP.htm
