The Benjamin 250 is one of three pistols that make up the 250 line of air guns. Here is how they break down: 250 is a .175 BB pistol 252 is a .22 caliber pellet pistol 257 is a .177 caliber pistol.

Benjamin made this model from 1946 to 1985, but did not start serializing them until 1957. I also have a Benjamin Franklin that has no serial number.
