I read various sites. They all mention to store one pump ( or more ) before you place it away. Also they say not to cock before pumping, others recommend do not cock but leave the action open, others cock but do not load...etc before pumpimg.
Lube only the three pumping pivots and to check the pumper each time before you use it that these three pivot points display lube. The lube, such as Crosman PellGun Lube, will eventually lube the piston as well. Much of this information is not the "official" Crosman manual that is packed with a Benjamin. It is pump ( no more than 8 times for box stock 397..) then cock and load. Fire, and repeat.What is the current recommended proceedure for a box stock 397PA?
Thank you to all !
Pete
