 “The Benjamin brand has always provided premier airguns that are unmatched in performance and value,” said Phillip Guadalupe, Product Manager. “Our consumers told us that they wanted the Benjamin performance they’ve always relied on, but with the added benefit of being able to take more shots and extend the time between refills.  We developed the Fortitude to deliver on what they were asking for.”

The Fortitude is a multi-shot repeater with a regulator that uses interchangeable 10-shot rotary magazines for bolt-action firing. The Fortitude features a lightweight all-weather ergonomic stock. The regulator built into the 3000 PSI reservoir controls the output air pressure for shot-to-shot consistency, making the Fortitude the best option for backyard plinking, target shooting, pest control or small game hunting. All of these features will be available at the blazing low price of a $299.99 MSRP.
