Benjamin® Rogue .357 FAQs June 15, 2011 ePCP, Products Twitter0Facebook0LinkedIn0 With the Benjamin® Rogue .357 launch right around the corner, we know you have questions! The Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) below will be available on the Rogue product page and if you have a question not listed here, simply add it to the Comments. Coming soon: a video Quick Start Guide and the Know Your Rogue video owner’s manual. What game can be harvested? The Rogue is ideal for a variety of game, from raccoons and prairie dogs to coyotes and hogs up to 200 pounds. What is the range of the Rogue? Base on the settings of the EPiC panel, the Rogue is capable of taking prairie dog-sized game past 100 yards and coyotes up to 75 yards. Download our Capabilities Guide for recommendations. How much recoil is there? The Rogue has a recoil similar to a rimfire rifle. Can any .357 caliber bullet be used? Due to the unique barrel rifling of the Rogue, only soft lead bullets without lubrication in .357 caliber should be used. Can the Rogue be filled with a hand pump? No. The Rogue’s regulator requires a slow but constant supply of clean dry air so a scuba or HPA tank is recommended. We offer fittings for most power sources. Are the electronics waterproof? No. All electronics are conformal coated to make them weather resistant. How quiet is the Rogue? Depending on the settings of the EPiC panel, noise levels average 88dB. This is similar to a .22 rimfire. For comparison, the normal talking voice is 60-70dB. Is it legal to hunt in my state with the Rogue? Nearly all states allow some form of hunting with airguns. We recommend you consult your state regulations and local ordinances before doing so. Will there be multi-barrel options? No. Have a question not listed above?

Chip @ Crosman June 16, 2011 Sorry, we don’t comment on unannounced products. Ken Benson June 17, 2011 If the Rogue is capable of taking a 200 pound hog, then it would seem capable of taking a similar (or greater) weight whitetail deer–but at what range was it determined capable of taking the hog? Chip @ Crosman June 17, 2011 We suggest hogs within 50 yards. Before you attempt a shot on a deer, be sure to check local regulations. There are only about three states that allow the taking of deer with an airgun. Jerry Anderson June 19, 2011 do you have a ballistic table for the velocities/energy in ft lbs at various ranges? Chip @ Crosman June 20, 2011 Not at this time. Jerry Anderson June 19, 2011 is the gun able to be ordered directly from Crosman or will I have to go through a dealer? How many dealers will have the guns? How could I become a dealer? Chip @ Crosman June 20, 2011 It will be available for sale from crosman.com as a Limited Edition package and the rifle only will be available from Pyramyd Air and Cabela’s. Most dealers will have it later this year once we are in full production. To become a dealer, simply send an inquiry through our Customer Service contact form. Rhys June 20, 2011 When will the Rogue come out Chip @ Crosman June 20, 2011 Any day now. Best thing to do is sign up to be notified on the product page. sijan June 21, 2011 mannnnnnnnnnnnnnnn more pictureeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee RICH June 27, 2011 What bullets does it shoot? How much energy(foot pounds) does it have ? What is the velocity with different weight bullets ? Chip @ Crosman June 28, 2011 It shoots .357 caliber, soft lead bullets without lubrication. FPE up to 250 depending upon the settings, at 850fps. Sigmund June 30, 2011 What is the accuracy of this rifle at 100yrds. A 5 shot group would be appreciated. Thank you, Sigmund jim July 2, 2011 I’m looking for more details about the HPA tank. Above it says the rifle needs constant low pressure air to be fed-does this mean an air tank is required to be continually attached to fire-and how would you carry it-via backpack? Chip @ Crosman July 5, 2011 “Constant pressure” refers to a tank rather than a hand pump for filling the air reservoir. A hand pump has negative pressure between strokes whereas a tank can provide the constant flow. Once filled, simply replace the cap and go shooting – there is no need for a tank to be constantly attached. Frank wooten July 9, 2011 What about whitetail deer in the 140 pound range? Chip @ Crosman July 11, 2011 The Rogue is an ideal predator gun (coyote). A head shot on a deer would do the trick and this rifle is accurate enough for that. Don’t expect much of a blood trail from a heart/lung shot so be prepared for a long track. And check local regulations. Ali Allawi July 17, 2011 Try to get the Rogue Ltd. it is an excellent package and will cost you much less than when you buy the items separately ( the scope almost 200, the bipod at least 100- very good quality and the bag which is about 75-100 dollars) so the whole thing is about 1700 and you are getting it for 1500. I ordered it about June 28 and received it few days ago. I did not try it yet but it looks like something special.

Wouldnt u expect something that pricey to last a lifetime? Look at iit! It has plastic parts! A MICRO processor and an LCD screen? Does it maKe phone calls too? Please buy a DAQ, a Sam Yang, or a Jbarnes if you want a big bore capable of taking down a 1000 lb bison at 75 yards. This is an overpriced piece of crap. I have a DAQ .308 That Ive killed 6 deers with so far. biggest was an 8pt at 80yds. 1 shot. complete pentration with a mrhollowpoint 400gn hollowpoint. perfect humane killshot. when we skinned that buck the exit wound was big enough to hold a lime! And guess what. IT WAS AMERICAN HANDMADE AND COST ME UNDER $800! I hate that crapman bought out Benjamin. Well, actually maybe it was a good. move to help crosman learn how to make a better gun. chunnicutt January 3, 2012 Comparable rifles to the Rogue start at $2,000 and comparing it to anything else is misrepresenting the capabilities of the other guns. The Rogue is a multi-shot, shrouded, variable power, accurate and highly air efficient. It’s not about “heavy rounds and short range” or thousand-pound animals, it’s about a big bore getting more than two shots. It’s about managing air and getting anywhere from four to nearly twenty shots from a single fill of air. Sure it looks different but that’s because it *is* different. chunnicutt December 4, 2013 The Rogue *can* be filled with a hand pump. We recommend a high pressure tank like the Benjamin 15″ charging system due to the tremendous effort necessary with the pump. The Rogue has a high volume air reservoir and while it is possible to hand pump, for the maximum shooting time, the tank is the way to go.
