Benjamin 250 Specifications

Can anyone please supply a scan of an original specification sheet for the Benjamin 250 ?
This is needed for a fellow UK collector, so he can get his 250 from the UK Border Control Agency (Customs), who won't release it until shown proof of manufacturers original specifications.

Dave, I'm not sure exactly what you need. The only info. I have on this Pistol is in Dean's book The St. Louis & Benjamin Air Rifle Co's. This includes a parts list, operating instructions and an advetisment for the pistol.

Ejwills.

Hi Dave

If you let me have your email I can scan a copy of the operating instructions/schematic of the 250 and send it to you, if it helps.

I think what David is after is the factory specs on power output so his friend can prove it is a UK leagal item to own.

Found this online for the model 250

This is the factory instruction sheet for that model, did not see any power specs but they might be there. Looks like these pistols were made in the early 50's and it is possible no testing was done back then in regards to power output.

Have a look

Thanks for that, Tom, but unfortunately it doesn't give any of the information I'm looking for.
I've done some online searches, and apart from the one you've posted, and one or two of a similar nature, I still haven't found the information required.
I was hoping someone on the AVAGF might have an original spec sheet, or a copy of same.

That's the same as Tom's link and is the only literature found online so far.
It does not contain specification information, which is what is needed.

Hi Dave
Regretably you are unlikely to find the info you need as Benjamin did not include any performance specs in their advertising until around 1973 when they started including muzzle velocity. Their early 50's ad for the 250 only states that it can be shot with pellets, darts, or B.B's and will group from 1" to 2" at 5 to 10 yards, and I am afraid thats it. You may need to check out Gas Air & Spring Guns of the World to see if Smith ever tested a 250 to get any sort of written evidence of the actual performance.
Hope this helps.

Hi Ian,
Thanks for your input.
I can only find reference to the Benjamin 260 onward in 'Smiths', and no mention at all in the much later James House book on CO2 rifles and pistols.
Unfortunately, UK Customs normally require manufacturers spec. sheets, so if there aren't any, my friend is snookered.!!!!!

Hi Dave
Maybe your friend should approach customs to advise that their IS NO manufacureres information available, and the closest available would be that on the 262, the 250's more powerful replacement.
They may accept a copy of the test carried out by Smith in G.A.& S
If that fails he may need to get them to have it chronoed.
