FWIW I purchased a Benjamin Discovery about 2 years ago. It came with the hand pump and I added a decent scope. I think I spent about $350.00 including the scope and it has been a great air rifle. The accuracy and distance still sort of blows me away. Never had any issues with the Benjamin Pump. You may want to keep an eye on the yellow air gun forum classifieds as nice deals come up regularly on Benjamins.
