Benjamin Gunnar Review
The Gunnar comes equipped with a heavy-duty hard case designed to accommodate it with its scope attached. This feature is something other air rifle manufacturers don’t offer.
HAM testers noted the soft yet grippy buttpad, as well as multiple raised positions of the cheekpiece, as providing ample opportunities to achieve a tight cheek weld with any position of the stock.
Early Life and Education
Gunnar earned three varsity letters in track and field. He won both Dahlberg’s pole vault championship as well as placing second at state in this event.
He began writing during his early teens and produced two collections of poetry before reaching 17. By 1912 he completed the first volume of his novel Borgslaegtens historie (“The Family from Borg”) which became a Scandinavian best seller.
Since then, Gunnar has published over 40 novels as well as short stories and articles. Additionally, he has done voice-over work for multiple commercials, films and television shows; as an actor himself he has appeared in multiple movies since age three.
The Gunnar is an elegant PCP air rifle featuring bottle forward regulated design operating at 3000 PSI and boasting fully shrouded barrel with sound suppression system as well as an adaptor enabling use of silencers dedicated to airguns.
HAM testers found the Gunnar to be an extremely quiet shooter; indeed, during testing review they didn’t need to raise its adjustable cheekpiece at all!

Achievement and Honors
The Benjamin Gunnar PCP rifle features an elegant side-lever operation and can be made even quieter through its optional adapter for aftermarket airgun moderators.
The Gunnar features a 500cc aluminum bottle capable of filling to 3000psi and comes equipped with two 10-shot magazines (for.22 and.25 caliber rifles) as well as an internal adjustable regulator and five position transfer port adjuster.
Our HAM Test Team expected that raising the cheek piece on the stock would be necessary in order to obtain an optimal cheek weld when using this airgun, but that wasn’t necessary at all! Furthermore, this lightweight airgun balances well and our testers thought the Gunnar represented excellent value.
