WE BELIEVE PCP IS THE SUPERIOR CHOICE OF FIRING METHOD.
THE BENEFITS OF PCP
High Power, High AccuracyWith a full reservoir, a PCP airgun delivers high power and high accuracy with almost no recoil. Other methods of firing an airgun allow for less consistency, accuracy, and power.
Multiple Shots, Less HassleWith a PCP, you can fire dozens of pellets before you’ll need to top off the reservoir. And because PCP reservoirs are highly pressurized and large, you can fire without pausing to pump or refill. Enjoy this high level of reliability with these types of air rifles from Benjamin Airguns.
See Your StatusBenjamin PCP airguns all feature a pressure gauge, so you can see when you need a refill.
Make it YoursBenjamins like the Marauder can be fine-tuned to fit your shooting preferences. You can adjust the hammer spring, the striker, and the valve metering screw to match the pellet you’re using and to flatten the curve as you deplete the reservoir.
TYPES OF AIRGUNS
PROS/CONS: Spring-piston airguns have to be cocked before every shot, recoil can be an issue, and so too is barrel droop—that’s when you fail to perfectly lock up the barrel, so your aim gets thrown off.
PROS/CONS: Nitro piston airguns have to be cocked before every shot, but they deliver consistent power over many shots while a spring can relax over time. Noise and vibration are also reduced with a Nitro Piston airgun.
PROS/CONS: You need to pump these up for each shot.
PROS/CONS: These can be fired repeatedly without re-cocking. There’s no recoil, but the pressure will fluctuate as the cartridge gets depleted.
- For spring-piston and pump-action airguns, all you need is the gun and pellets. Read our pellet gun ammo guide for more insights.
- If you opt for a CO2 airgun, you’ll need to add Powerlets®.
- For a PCP airgun, you’ll need a filling solution.
FILL WITH HIGH-PRESSURE POWER
A Benjamin Charging System Cylinder can be filled at a dive shop, and then you can use it to top off your airgun around six times before you’ll need to refill it.
Benjamin also offers two models of high-pressure air compressors:
- The Traveler runs off a 12-volt battery—like the one in your car.
- The Recharge is a plug-in model.
READY, AIM, FIRE!
Once you’ve made your choice from all the types of air rifles we have in stock, lined up your gear, and checked out our simple pellet gun ammo guide, there are only a few steps before you’re ready to fire a PCP airgun.
- Fill your reservoir
- Load your pellets
- That's it.
If you’re following all applicable laws and all recommended safety precautions, you’re ready to shoot.
While laws vary between states, in general, you can:
- Use any type of air rifle without a license
- Use one outside of firearm hunting seasons
- Shoot them in places other than ranges.
While you might spend hundreds on 500 30-06 rounds, the same number of airgun pellets sell for $15. With more powerful, high caliber airguns now available, there are a dwindling number of situations in which only a firearm will do
