I've done and a search and couldn't find anything.

This is a dumb question... but where do I put the silicone chamber oil in my Benjamin Classic .22?? I'm guessing when I break the barrel I put in a drop or two into the hole opposite the barrel??

If silicone chamber oil is needed (for example, if you've noticed a drop in power), it goes in the port you've described. Only use a drop or two. Less is better than too much. Apply it to the gun when it is vertical (standing on its butt). If you must cock your gun to apply the oil (you might be able to break the barrel and hold it down enough to apply a drop or two of chamber oil) do not fire it. Decock the rifle by securely and firmly holding on the barrel and pressing the trigger. Hang on firmly to the barrel and carefully allow the spring to decompress within the gun as the barrel returns to its uncocked position. Let the oil work its way into the piston chamber with the gun vertical. Then break the barrel and pull down on it a number of times (without cocking the gun) so the piston moves back and forth. This will help work the oil in the piston chamber. Never dry fire the rifle.
