The Benjamin 347 is a .177 caliber, bolt action, single shot, multi-pump pneumatic with a rifled barrel. It’s similar to the Benjamin Model 310 but has centrally positioned tang safety. This one has a smooth rectangular style forearm pump handle (instead of the round ribbed). They were manufactured between 1969 & 1992.
The stock and forearm have some general wear, but retain about 90% of the finish. No cracks or large chips. The metal retains about 85% of the original finish mostly due to “thinning” with fairly even wear. Looks nice!
It was cleaned, lubed, and resealed in our shop. Velocity was tested with 10 pumps at about 667 fps using lead pellets.
