    I've been into air guns for a while
    This is a a Benjamin Franklin 132 22 cal.
    Other than it works and is fairly accurate; I really don't know much about it.

    Handsome piece. Is it a single-stroke pneumatic, or multi-stroke?

    I wonder if that's the same company as Benjamin.

    It is an early Benjamin multi pump pistol. Kind of neat guns we rebuild a lot of them in the shop.

    Multi-stroke.

    Honestly, I don't know. I was at an antique show and picked it up for $50. Other than I knew it was old and in VG condition; I don't know much more about it.



    Ah, you caught my attention with the "early Benjamin." As it lacks a serial number, dating it hasn't been possible.

    I've found it to be reasonably accurate and it scores very high in the fun category.

    Denster: to what shop are you referring? I have an Old Benjamin 310 ( I think) that needs some love. Where can I find service?

    Great little pistol. Add a few drops of
    Crosman PELLGUN OIL
    to the pump lever were it slides. It will moisten the leather seal and make it shoot a little harder. If not tear it down and make a new leather seal for it. Always store it with one pump. It will keep the seals from leaking. Have fun with it. You got a great deal its worth $150

    They are very easy to work on. Just do it yourself. Take pictures of it with your phone as you tear it down so you have a schematic to reassemble

    Baker Airguns in Mt Victory Ohio just google Baker airguns. The 310 is another popular gun I probably rebuild 7 to 10 of them every week.
