Technically all Benjamin 312’s have nickel under a black finish. Typically the black and nickel wear down to the brass, but someone did a pretty nice job removing the black finish on this one which reveals a nice shiny nickel finish.
.22 caliber bolt action single shot, breech loading multi-pump pneumatic with swing pump handle. This model was manufactured between 1940 & 1969. This one has a smooth forearm pump handle, which is pretty rare, because it is a Western Auto variant. The wood on this one is in excellent condition. Velocity was tested in our shop at 468 fps with 10 pumps using lead pellets.
