Introducing the Largest Caliber Benjamin PCP Air Rifle Available
FEBRUARY 15, 2022, BLOOMFIELD, NEW YORK— Benjamin® airguns proudly introduces the new Bulldog .457—its largest bore, premium pre-charged pneumatic (PCP) air rifle. The Bulldog .457 kicks the proven Bulldog platform up a few notches to give big game hunters the stopping power they deserve: up to 450 foot-pounds of energy, more than double that of the Bulldog .357.
“The Bulldog .457 is the most powerful compact PCP set to hit the market. Not only will it take down big game, it’ll do it with smaller projectiles and with a max fill pressure of 3000psi. That adds up to a serious beast of an air rifle that handles as ingeniously and distinctively as any Benjamin,” says Senior Product Manager, Phillip Guadalupe.
The Benjamin Bulldog .457 integrates high-demand features:
- Its larger 440cc reservoir gives hunters a minimum of two shots with stopping power of over 400 FPE.
- Load easier—and more—with a drop-in shot tray. The Bulldog .457 can hold up to three rounds at once.
- Threaded muzzle allows hunters to add aftermarket sound suppression—crucial for maintaining the element of surprise and getting off a second shot if needed.
The Benjamin Bulldog .457 will be available this month on the Benjamin website for a MSRP of $1099.99.
