This Trail NP rifle features a hardwood stock.

Site in at 3P Match
November 23, 2011
I brought the Trail NP to a double indoor match to site it in. After several barrel warming shots I was in the 8 ring on a Int target. My spotter called good enough - but I tweaked it a couple of clicks rt and up and fired several 10s. The equivilant of the dot in the "i" at 33' The whole team had a go at the gun and we were hitting regular 9s (about the size of a .22) off hand. The trigger was not to the standard of our match rifles but sufficient for this gun. Several on the team now have Trail NPs on their Christmas list.
Pros:
Comfortable stock - bith rt & left handed tam members had no beef.

Great Gun,Great FUN!
November 14, 2011
This was my first Nitro Piston air rifle. WOW what a fun gun! After cleaning and polishing the bore (a must), I was able to start grouping shots pretty much right off the bat. Now after a couple of tins of pellets, it’s a real nail driver. Plinking 1” targets at 30 yards isn’t a problem. Neither are squirrels. I have now struck fear into the hearts of every tree rat in my neighborhood. The .22 gives me the plenty “whack” power I need to eliminate any annoying pests. I love the integrated sling that’s included. It helps to steady the offhand shots. The quietness of the nitro piston also keeps down on complaints by nosey neighbors. All in all I am very satisfied with my purchase.
Pros:
I love the integrated sling, and the quietness of the rifle.
Cons:
You MUST CLEAN THE BORE right out of the box. Otherwise you will have accuracy problems that may take hundreds of shots to finally get the rifle to settle down.

Nice looking rifle with a few gripes
September 27, 2014
This rifle is beautiful. The thumbhole option is perfect. The trigger needs much improvement. On my rilfe I am nearly to the back of the trigger gaurd before sending the pellet down range. TERRIBLE! I did find youtube videos on how to make it better and have with a little time and effort. Mine shoots CPHP's at an average of 735 fps with an ES of 19 FPS, pretty good for made in China. I do actually love the integrated weaver rail. All manufactures should be doing this. Good shooting and accurate gun.
Pros:
Thumbhole stock- Absolutley gorgeous
Cons:
Trigger- need to improve these

Benjamin Trail NP .22
September 12, 2014
Dissapointed with the buckskin finish at first but after time it has grown on me. It was nothing like pictured. Mine has very little grain with no outstanding grain pattern. This is a manufactor issue not airgundepot imo. I upgraded the scope with a BSA scope (my choice). I also install the triger bushing and shimmed the bottom of the front of scope mount to compensate for the barrel droop. Very happy with the results now.
Pros:
Shoots a good pattern with crosman premier hollow points, no flyers, hits hard.
Cons:

This is the first air rifle that I ever owned. After a ton of researched I found this rifle to be the best of the best for hunting with a gas-piston gun. What really got me to like this gun was the CA hunting laws only letting you use non coil spring air rifles. All-in-all this is a great gun.

Fills the need
April 18, 2014
The Benjamin Trail NP Hardwood .22 cal. Air Rifle w/scope fills my needs for a close- in powerful pest control weapon. At first it seemed a bit heavy compared to my Gamo Whisper .22 , which is spring powered . I soon realized that along with the extra heft , came a more solid , powerful and so far accurate nitro piston rifle . The Center Point scope system seems to work better than some, as it prevents eventual "slip back" after a day of shooting.
Pros:
Solid , accurate , good-styling
Cons:
Weight , and for some, the cocking may be a bit hard .

Powerful, Well Built Air Rifle
March 23, 2014
Solid, hefty, well built air rifle. Mine says "Crosman" on the receiver but is branded as Benjamin. The included CenterPoint 3-9x40mm scope works well for this rifle. I get very good results with the Gamo MasterPoint 16.2gr pellets. The Nitro Piston spring action is powerful, produces high pressures and short lock times without excessive noise or recoil. Because of the high pressures, this rifle is prone to "diesel" if you get any oil in the action. Dry Molly lube seems to work the best. I also found that Lyman Molly Bore Cream works best as a bore lube (a thin, even film is all you need). .
Pros:
Overall, a very good rifle for the price. Very powerful and well made. The accuracy and consistency is very good.
Cons:
The trigger group could use some serious improvements. The trigger is a cheap piece of stamped sheet metal. While reasonably smooth and no creep, there is an excessively long travel (about 1/2") before the trigger breaks. The safety inside the trigger guard is disturbing. It would be easy to accidentally pull the trigger when attempting to engage the safety on a loaded rifle. An improved trigger is available from "charliedatuna.com" but still, Crosman could do much better than this. Another thing, I noticed that the opening in the back of the barrel where you insert the pellet has a very square, sharp edge. This was shaving lead off the skirt of the pellet. I used a 45-degree countersink (by hand) to chamfer the opening and some 2000 grit sandpaper to radius and polish the opening. That eliminated the lead shavings and also gave tighter groups as well.

A Nice Little Rifle Right Out Of The Box
December 7, 2013
Took it out of the box and cleaned the barrel before I shot a round -- got all of the cosmoline and whatever out. Then I shot about 20 rounds without mounting the scope. I just shot off of the scope mounting rail. Reasonably accurate that way. I was pleasantly surprised. Then mounted the scope and shot another 50 rounds without worrying about accuracy. Used the last 50 rounds to adjust the scope. By the time I was done I could land 5 consecutive rounds inside a 2" target at about 20 yards. I had enough scope adjustment without adding any shims. Very happy with the results over all --- this gun is better than I am. The trigger is a little long and the rifle is a little heavy. Shooting that initial 120 rounds was more work than I had planned. But, still a lot of fun!!!!!!!!

No good so far
September 14, 2013
First off, wood finish is terrible, right out of the box, it is a dull pinkish color, not a deep golden brown as in the pictures, I actually thought it was some kind of plastic composite, actually had to really check it out closely, and still was not totally convince that it was really wooden. So i mount up the scope, take a few shots at a 4ft x 8ft ply wood to start to scope this in, way low and to the left, i max out the wind-age and elevation settings, cannot get close, so I reset all of the scope ring bolts, re -torque gently and slowly, alternating bolts, still no luck, so i double check the mount bolts, one is pretty lose, try to tighten it up, but it is stripped. Go out an buy a new set of Burris rings, re do the whole set up procedure, and it is still hitting a good foot low and 10" to the left at 50 feet. the grouping is consistent. pellets are landing within a few inches, or even on top of each other, but they are 12" low and 10" left, i can only assume that the boring is off within the barrel.
Cons:
Does not shoot streight

Great for fun shooting
July 26, 2013
This is my first pellet gun so my comments reflect my experience with military type firearms. Out of the box this rifle looks and feels like the real thing. After close examination I found no flaws in workmanship or finish. The wooden stock has such a smooth finish it looks like it was molded. This is a light weapon however with the scope mounted it feels to be biased toward the muzzle . I think this would be even a better rifle , better balanced with fixed sights as an option. After cleaning the barrel and taking a couple shots to my surprise I found it to be fairly accurate without any adjustment to the scope. I consistently hit small soup can size targets at about 75 ft. I will update after the rifle is seriously zeroed in. The comments about this weapon's poor trigger action are probably true, but after firing military, and a Glock 45 that does it's own thing I found the trigger pull light and predictable. The deep pellet penetration through my wooden backstop shows this to be a serious close range weapon.
Pros:
Quality workmanship, accuracy, and affordability .
Cons:
Personal preference for fixed sight option.

Great Varmint Tool
June 17, 2013
Inexpensive fun and yet powerful enough for varmint control when not plinking. I ordered the GRT-III from CharlieDaTuna after reading the reviews. I understand how important a good trigger is for being on target. I have not received the new trigger as of yet, otherwise this is my only upgrade. I cleaned the barrel right out of the box and boy am I glad I did. It was filthy. After reading the instruction manual I decided to have some fun and set up a small target with a backdrop. Missed the target on the first shot in a standing position. After that I was nailing groups with ease and a lot of them within an inch at 10 yards from a standing position. The pellets were buried in a 2 inch pressure treated backboard. It has enough power. Would the XL be better? Maybe, but I was concerned about nosy neighbors so this seemed to be a better choice regarding noise. It is very quite. I purchased three different pellets and find all of them very good. The Crosman Premier is very good to practice with. The RWS Superpoint and Super-H Point are incredible for accuracy and knock down Power (if you gotta shoot em make it one shot for their sake). My experience with Airgun Depot is/was great. Their web site is a big help in making my selection since I am new to air guns.
Pros:
Affordable, powerful enough, attractive finish and quite!
Cons:
I could be wrong, but I thought I saw this same air rifle at the local WalMart for $199. This did not show up on their web site as available at the store. It was an order item and the price was the same as Airgun Depot? Again, I was in a hurry so I may be wrong, but they did carry this item. May be worth a look.

Benjamin Trail NP Hardwood .22 cal review
April 13, 2013
I purchased this rifle for larger pest control in a residential area. I have found the rifle to be minimally hold sensitive and quieter than my Crosman 1322 carbine and pistol. I performed the break-in in my basement range, which is 20-feet, and later lubed as directed in the manual with the Crosman Silicone Chamber Oil. I found that I had highest accuracy with Crosman Destroyer pellets. With these I consistently get 0.125 CTC, but with a 0.5 POI shift from all of my other pellets (Crosman Hollow Point, JSB Exact Diabolo, RWS Superdome, Tech Force Wadcutter). In Chrony testing I have the following results: 748 FPS, Crosman Hollow Point, 14.3 grain, 0.25 CTC 737 FPS, Crosman Destroyer, 14.3 grain, 0.125 CTC, 0.5 POI shift left 721 FPS, Tech Force Wadcutter, 14.43 grain, 0.156 CTC 720 FPS, RWS Superdome, 14.5 grain, 0.25 CTC 692 FPS, JSB Exact Diabolo, 14.35 grain, 0.25 CTC 689 FPS, Beeman Round, 15.2 grain, 0.3125 CTC 668 FPS, Tech Force Pointed, 15.51 grain, 0625 CTC
Pros:
I have found this rifle to be quiet and accurate (after the initial break-in). I have not had any issues with the trigger nor scope. I am sure that with proper technique that the accuracy could be improved.
Cons:
There were minor finish blemishes.

BENJAMIN TRAIL NP .22 CAL RIFLE
March 18, 2013
You get what you paid for with this rifle. It is all it and others have said. I am using good superdome pellets and have cleaned the barrel with the wire brush and cleaner, as someone else suggested. It was dirty and I am sure it would have made a difference with accuracy. The scope is also great. I am down to one or two clicks of fine tuning. Shooting small dixi cups of water at 100 feet. Lots of fun. No game yet. but will be eating good soon.
Pros:
Getting what I paid for. Very quiet for mobile home yard target practice.
Cons:
REMEMBER TO CLEAN BARREL FIRST FOR THE BEST SHOOTING.

I got this pellet rifle to kill coons, but when I went to site it in, it was all over the target. I tried Benjamin pellets to see if this gun liked just Benjamin pellets. It still shot everywhere. I sent the gun back 3 times but every time it still shot every where.
Pros:
Powerful
Cons:
Inaccurate and loud

The right tool for the job
February 25, 2013
I purchased this refurbished NP 22 cal rifle almost 11 months ago. Why? Sale price, looks, power-950 fps, quality, and probably to one up my sons. I am right handed but have a left lead eye so the open hole thumb grip works good for me left handed. At almost 62 years old, living just up river from carmel ca and having horses, noise is a factor. A week ago at three in the morning, my wife and I were woke up by the chickens, for the second time. We didn't see a thing except feathers at the top of the 8 ft high wire coop. Some of the chickens roost on top of a sub coop. I told my wife that a raccoon may have reached down from the top through a lap in the wire and could only pull out a handful of feathers. We then locked up the chickens in the sub coop. I told my wife that that animal will be back and will probably drop down and would not be able to get back out. Sure enough once again 20 minutes pass and the chickens sounded like they were being massacred. I have a 12 gage and the NP by my bed but the NP would be the best choice for this raccoon with at close range right between the eyes. In underwear, bare foot and my wife holding a small led flashlight some kind of animal was bouncing from one corner of the coop to the other. I thought that it might be barn owl at first and when it came to rest I was surprised to see a large male bobcat. I shot twice not using the scope, foolishly thinking that I could not see through it anyway. The third and final shot, I settled down and used the scope, could see the cross hairs and target at night perfectly and that's all it took. I am just now finishing the tanning process finding two shoulder pellets which didn't do much but the skinned head showed a large 22 cal size hole deep in the center of the skull and with that shot. I know that this beautiful creature did not suffer at all. I am very pleased

Love it, Fun, cheap to shoot and accurate
February 10, 2013
Got mine for Christmas. Sighted it in at 60 yards on Christmas. Stopped tweaking the scope after 100 rounds, since I have heard of the warm in period for air rifles. Finished out the 400 yards I got as a present. Have not tweaked the scope any further since. It hits within 2 to 3 inches at 60 yards consistently. The drop after 70 yards is significant but consistent shot after shot. It is safe to have around kids since they can't compress the piston but it is not a kids air-rifle.
Pros:
Accuracy and power down range.
Cons:
Length is a bit much.

Long trigger pull.
January 10, 2013
Did not take long to sight in. Taken out over 10 squirrels this week in my back yard. You cannot get too quick on the trigger or you will be way off. Trying a 22 grain pellet and very pleased with the knockdown power under 25 yards. Have not tried it past that distance. Gun is a little heavy but never owned a pellet gun before. Very quiet which is what I was looking for. Adjusted trigger pull to lightest position but it doesn't seem to help a lot but I like to overall performance.
Pros:
Quiet, accurate, and good looks.
Cons:
Heavy and long trigger pull.

Excellent rifle!
January 3, 2013
I wanted more than anything to rate this rifle 5 stars but seeing as how the trigger on this rifle is garbage I had to rate it 4. The reason I gave it a 4 is because it was such an easy fix that I am astonished Crosman has not addressed this issue due to all the complaints. If you have any knowledge of how trigger and sear engagement work you can fix all of the problems for free and even if you don't it only takes a small amount of mechanical inclination and about an hour to do so. So save your 40 bucks and do not buy the grt-III trigger, instead do some research and make this rifle a joy to shoot at no additional charge. After working over the trigger and sear this gun is by far the best most accurate value for the money and even rifles costing 100 or more dollars than this one would have a hard time competing. If you are thinking of buying this rifle do not hesitate. Even with the trigger as is from the factory it is still a beast of a rifle!
Pros:
Everything aside from the trigger.
Cons:
Trigger. However it is an easy enough fix that I had a hard time listing it as a con. Crosman, fix the trigger!!!

Benjamin Trail NP .22 Air Rifle
December 20, 2012
Product arrived within 3 days and in good condition. Set up was easy and the gun has worked properly for the first 200 shots I have put through it.
Pros:
Looks nice, instructions were easy to follow, and the gun seems to work properly.
Cons:
Would like to have a tighter target pattern. Can only get 8 of 10 shots in a 3 inch circle at 50 feet. Maybe this is good but would have expected a little better. Also, as expected, the scope is not of the highest quality.

Benjamin NP .22
October 29, 2012
I just received my Benjamin NP. I took it outside to my range immediately. After about 50 shots, all I can say is WOW! The groups were amazingly small. I'm ready to start using it with confidence on small game. This gun is a great value with incredible accuracy and a surprising nice trigger for a hunting gun. I was also impressed with the scope that came with the gun. All I had to do was set up the scope, set up the gun, sight it in and I'm ready to hunt. incidentally, the service from Air Gun Depot was GREAT! You have a customer for life and I'll tell all my friends.

Fantastic Right Out of the Box!!
July 6, 2012
This is a review from my first day with this rifle. It was perfect right out of the box and was grouping 1/2'' groups at 25yards after five shots. Pretty amazing!! I bought this as an upgrade to my Winchester 1028 and man what an upgrade this Benjamin is. As I spend more time with this weapon I will comment more on its dependability, accuracy overtime etc. But as far as initial impressions I am impressed and would buy it again and again.
Pros:
Accuracy, Super Quiet, Powerful
Cons:

working well so far
June 10, 2012
My last air rifle was a Daisy 880 purchased approximately 25-30 years ago, so I don't have too much experience with newer air rifles. I borrowed a Gamo from a friend a few weeks ago, so that is really the only thing I have to compare with the Trail. But, the Trail appears to be a much better rifle. The Gamo was incredibly loud, so I was a little apprehensive of the newer air rifles (I needed a gun that was quiet due to neighbors and this was the main reason I purchased an air rifle, specifically a nitro piston). But, I was very pleasantly surprised at how quiet the Trail is (right out of the box), greatly exceeding my expectations, and substantially more quiet than the Gamo. The scope is a quality scope, easy to put on and adjust. I'm still fine-tuning it though, and may have to shim it, as I'm maxed out at both elevation and windage (seems like others have had the same problem). I guess the biggest disapointment on the Trail was the stock (I'm more of a fan of dark wood stocks). This one is rather plain and the finish isn't all that attractive, plus there are 'B's and 'Benjamins' stamped on it. But, as long as it continues to shoot well, I guess it's not all that big of a deal (the only real reason I gave it a 4 of 5 is the stock). I'm not through the break-in period, so I probably haven't acheived the best accuracy yet. It didn't take long at all to group well at 15 yards, but at 25 yards, the groups open up quite bit. Right now, 10-shot groups are right at 2.5-3 inches at 25 yards; 0.5 inch or smaller at 10-15 yards. Accuracy does appear to be getting better each day I shoot it (accuracy is much better than with the Gamo). I bought the gun for critters up to coon size (skunks, possums, coons, feral cats) at 30 yards or less. Only have a limited sample size so far, but killing power is good on these animals with proper shot placement. The trigger is much-maligned, but I can tell you that for most purposes, it is fine. The biggest thing is consistency in the trigger pull anyway, not the trigger itself. The sling and studs are a nice bonus.
Pros:
scope is very nice, sling is an added bonus, killing power is good
Cons:
the stock isn't very appealing

Solid rifle. Great weight. Only issue I have is that the mount seems to be too high, sighting the rifle at this point has been difficult due to the fact that the elevation knob is maxed out down. This may be an error on my part so I am going to continue to tinker with it. Fantastic down range stopping power- punches through coffee cans like butter at 70 yards
Cons:
mount seems to be way too high for proper scope zeroing

Benjamin Trail NP is a very nice air rifle
May 1, 2012
I just received this 22 cal version from Airgun Depot. I had no issues at all with the ordering and delivery. The gun is a very well made air gun. Right out of the box it was clear that it was well made. Mounting the scope was easy, and the scope is a very nice scope. The scope is as good as it gets for almost any rifle needs. The gun was pretty accurate right off the bat. After I sighted the scope at 50 feet, the gun would shoot groupings within about a silver dollar anywhere from 50 feet to 150 feet out. The trigger pull was a little too long for my comfort though. After I adjusted the trigger pull with the set screw, the gun immediately started grouping shots within about a half dollar size group out to 150 feet. Just as advertised, after about 150 rounds through the gun, it really started to settle in. The gun was pretty loud at first. After about a hundred rounds it was definitely quieter. Now, it is really nice and quiet. The gun is shooting tight quarter dollar size groupings out to 150 feet. This is still an air gun though. I know that the occasional flier is my pulling the shot off the mark. It does not shoot like a rim fire or a center fire gun. There is a lot going on when you trigger an air gun. I have tried JSB pellets in 18.13 and 14.35 gr, and RWS in 14.5 gr. There is not a lot of difference between them. However, with this particular gun the RWS 14.5 gr seems to be more accurate. I don't see any noticable difference in accuracy between the 18 and the 14 gr pellets. This gun definitely has knock down power with the 14 gr pellet. The rodent population has definitely been on notice. All in all this is a very good gun. Not too heavy, not too long, just right. I am very happy with this purchase and would recommend it to any one.
Pros:
Well made. Great scope. Really good knock down power.
Cons:
Trigger pull is too long and breaks too much in the second stage. The screw adjustment helps, but more adjustment would be better.

Benjamin Trail Hardwood .22 Cal
January 8, 2012
The Benjaman Trail nitro piston .22 cal took 7 working days to arrive. After opening the box first impressions was that this is a nice rifle. The stock was a little darker than I expected and the steel looked nicely finished. The first thing I did was break the barrel to cock the gun and saw shreds of the breech seal hanging off the seal. Also the machine finish on the breech face was terrible (I am a machinist in the areo space industry for 25 plus years.) After removing the seal and deburring the counter bore I replaced the seal and loaded a pellet. The trigger SUCKED. The long gritty pull made me miss the trap! Twenty five shots later I was so disgusted with the trigger that I had to make a decision, either send the gun back or fix the trigger (voiding the warranty). After taking the trigger assambly apart what I found was that (in my opinion) the trigger parts were sent out to heat treat without being deburred. There were hardend jagged edges all over the sear and mating parts making the the pull way to long and many false second stages. I cleaned up the burrs and reassambled the trigger. (the parts were almost as hard as the file) Now the adjustment screw actually did something. Back to shooting. But can't hit sh*t. The wind age is good but the elevation changes with every shot. What I found was that the barrel lock up detente was not square to the (5mm) dowel pin that was supposed to activate it. I used vise grips to rotate it (the latch not the dowel pin) ccw about 2 degrees. Now the back side of the latch hits the dowel pin flush, locks up good but now had too many shims under the breech seal. There were five shims under the seal. I removed two of them and stoned the mating faces of the breach. The surface finish was crap. Now it shoots very accurate, bout the size of a nickel at 55 feet. Five shot groups. This is the longest I can shoot at the house. After about 600 rounds the shroud around the barrel is starting to rotate. Don't know why but I an sure it has something to do with the crappy machine work on the breech block. (I believe)/ (I Wish I would have known) that the Remington NPSS was made in the states! It would have been worth the extra $ to start there.
Pros:
What i liked about the Benjamin trail. Nitro piston is very smooth. Weaver rail and scope mounts are the best. No scope movement at all! Sling is great. Thumbs up on the scope very nice piece. Gun is Quiet.
Cons:
What i did not like about the Benjamin trail. Attention to the most important thing about a break barrel gun. Repeatability on the barrel lock up! Chinese are not machinists.

First Nice Air Gun
December 27, 2011
I got this gun for Christmas and am very happy with it. I have had cheaper guns in the past but this one blows them away. The scope is great. It is easy to load. The stock is comfortable. it has a great heavy, quality feel to it. We got it zero'd in at 25 yards with less than 25 shots. IT IS SOOOOO QUIET! My father in law has a .177 and this one is so much quieter. Air Gun Depot does a great job. The price is great and they shipped to us very quickly. Very pleased with this company and will order from them again.
Pros:
Very Quiet Very powerful Great scope Very smooth trigger pull Great power Very accurate
Cons:
Trigger pull is very long but can be adjusted easily

I Love It
December 26, 2011
Bryan from Iowa gave this a poor score because he thinks it an inaccurate gun. Bryan you can't shoot a spring/nitro gun the same way you do others because of the forward and backward recoil. Try cleaning the bore first and foremost. This is not a beginner gun, it requires a certain stance, (The artillery stance) to be accurate. Open you grip and hold it loosely as if you were resting the gun on a rail. Whatever you do, do not squeeze or tense when you pull the trigger. It will require some time to get used to, but when you do you will love this gun.
Pros:
The power and accuracy. The fact that you can leave it cocked for hours without damaging it. Quieter than springs and some other nitros.
Cons:
No iron sites.

Benjamin Trail Hardwood NP .22
December 3, 2011
First off is kudos to the airgun factory in getting this to me in such a timely manner. First thing I did after recieving this weapon was to mount the scope. Once I got the eye relief set, I removed, used blue locktite, reinstalled and tightened every screw I could find. I went as far as letting the locktite to set up over night before shooting for the first time. Next day I set up a target at 20 yards and started the sight in process. First shot was low and left and the gun was what I considered to be very loud. It sounded more like a .22 than a pellet rifle. The trigger has a very long pull to it but when it breaks, it is smooth and has no slop in it at all. Second shot almost touched the first and the rifle was much quieter. After attaining zero, five shots later grouping CTC measured 7/16ths of an inch. From what I have read here on the reviews, if this thing shoots this well after 10 rounds, I am more than proud to say " I bought a Benjamin."!!!
Pros:
Rifle performs as promised. Liked the fact it came with a nice sling. Very accurate and easy to cock. Scope is easy to dial in. Looking forward to taking some game with it.
Cons:
Trigger has a long but smooth pull. Not a deal breaker. This is a pellet rifle, not a bench rest rifle.

Not working out
November 25, 2011
My initial impression was that this is a really nice gun/scope package at an affordable price. I can't hit anything with it though. Best I can do is nickel size groups at 20 feet. Opens up to 6" plus at 25 yards. I've put several hundred Crosman pellets through it and tried several different holds including the "artillery" hold. Scope mounts loosened at first, but now they are staying tight. Cleaned the barrel and shot another fifty rounds tonight with same results. Always wanted a break barrel rifle. This is the first time I have owned or shot one. It will be the last time! Too bad if I got a lemon or a bad scope.
Merchant Response:
Sorry to hear about the issues. Its seems to be performing under the normal results for that gun as we have received fairly positive feedback otherwise. If you are interested in an exchange, let us know.
Pros:
Wood thumbhole stock Scope and mounts All metal barrel Sling Smooth action
Cons:
Poor accuracy makes it unuseable for hunting Long trigger travel Made in China

I really like the rifle and it met my expectations. Like many of the reviewers have said, the rifle is loud at first but really quietens down after about 100 rounds. My only disappointment is the scope. I found it hard to sight in. After I finally got it sighted in I'm constantly having to readjust. Overall I'm very satisfied.

This is a great and powerful rifle to shoot in your yard because it has a built in shrouded barrel with nitro piston as the power source, making it the quietest rifle in one of 25 rifles I have in my collection. The power is in par with my rws 48, but much quieter even comparing to the Gamo silent cat that I also have. The Ben Trail NP .22 is about twice the power as compared to the Silent Cat. This a great rifle. Just make sure you have a heavy duty... pellet trap or a normal bullet trap for real fire arms because this rifle can really penetrates. Very low recoil... Great rifle..

December 9, 2010
I received this gun at the beginning of summer, and let me tell you it has not let up. Bought it with rws supermatch and crossman hollows. Its my first airgun and i feel i made a good choice. Makes half inch groups at 30 yards, when i really concentrate on a rest. Trigger feels fine, haven't adjusted it yet, im too used to the way it is, a little creep. The stock is excellent, reminds me of my family's collection of quality firearms. The scope is pretty decent, was able to sight it in in 10-15 shots. After 6+ months haven't tired of it and pick it up once every couple days. At the beginning i just couldn't put it down though! Have taken a few squirrels, few at 15 yards, one at 35 when i felt the shot was good. With headshots does the job instantly. Great power, enough to take rabbits for shure. When i use the hollows (of course they don't actually expand at 800fps) punches halfway through a 3 inch phonebook!! shoots through full cans of soup, both sides (great fun!). Would recommend this gun to anyone. The break is a little stiff at first but it breaks in after 100 or so. Still a hard pull compared to others i've shot. The nitro piston is great, little discernible recoil, really kicks a$$ without kicking back.. Great gun, if your on the fence, buy it, you wont regret it!!

This air rifle is the best one i have ever used.It is very accurate and fits your hands like a glove.The power is great too, you wont have any trouble with using it too hunt small game.The only draw back to the 22 cal. is the fact that most stores dont bother stocking this cal. so you have to order them if you want the special pellets which is why i would buy the 177 caliber next time.It would still be this same rifle though.

(tip: never dry fire, shoot a unloaded a break barrel) shoots through 1/2 in. ply wood ez . need a back stop for shooting this piece. i can hear the pellet hit around 200 300yds. best accuracy 15-20yds dime size groups. well practice alot be safe!

When you say night scope are you referring to the Gamo Night Hunter Kit- Incl 3-9x40 Scope, New Mount, Laser and Flashlight? Most pellet guns do not come with that scope. There are a few Gamo guns that come with that scope. Most scopes come in the box with the pellet rifle but not attached.

By nick from CA on April 7, 2012
what are some good ammo choices that i can get for this gun?
By Gene from Chandler, AZ on April 12, 2012

Answer:
Well, I have the 950 fps version. Within 60 yards the Crossman Hollow points at 500 ct or the Benjamin Discovery Hollow points are a good choice. They are about 14.4 gr. and you can't beat the price. They seem to fly well and have good expansion. I have better accuracy with a heavier pellet like JSB Diablo 18.1 gr or even the Beeman Kodiack 21.14 grain.....they are really on the heavy side. Both fly well but the velocity is diminished. Regardless, they hit hard and do the job. Inertia makes up for the loss on FPS. I like round points over hollow points for hunting. For plinking, I shoot whatever is cheap, but I sight my rifles in with what I hunt with. I think the JSB Diablo 18.1 gr are a good choice for this gun.
By Bill from Saint Charles, Illinois on April 12, 2012

Answer:
I have had my Benjamin Trail NP for a couple of months and intend to use it for squirrel shooting. I have been using Crosman Premier Hollow Point pellets and have been impressed with the accuracy. I can hit the center of a soda can consistently from 40 yards which is sufficient accuracy to solve my squirrel problem.
By Kelly R. from Southern CA. on April 12, 2012

Answer:
The best ammo I have used for good grouping shots a 25 yards is JSB Diabolo Exact Jumbo Heavy 25 gr.
For just pinking But still good grouping at 25 yards I use Crosman Premier Hollow Points.
Dont use light ammo under 14 gr. It just flys every were but were your amming.

By mrkaether from Wisconsin on November 21, 2011

With the Benjamin TrailNP having a central forward/back trigger safety and a ambidextrous stock(right-left same) this gun fits both right and left hand shooters very well. In comparison some other rifles may have right/left favored cheek rests,safeties and actions.
By Ryan from Muscatine, IA on November 21, 2011

Answer:
The entire gun, including the raised cheek rest on the stock, is symmetrical and therefore ambidextrous.

By Carter from Washington on February 11, 2012

Answer:
Slow and hard. :)
By Todd from CA on May 30, 2012

Answer:
It is adjustable, but the screw supplied is too short, probably for legal/safety reasons. Try a 4-40 x 1/2", that will give you the full adjustment the trigger was designed for, just be careful because now you can adjust it down so light it will fire all by itself w/o warning. I have mine set just enough to be safe, and combined with a lightened (bent to weaken it) trigger return spring, it's turned a pathetic lawyer trigger into the trigger it was designed to be, which is actually very good! It's not match grade or anything, but it's better and lighter than any firearm I've shot and certainly better than I could've asked for. So don't settle with it as-is, and don't waste your time buying an aftermarket trigger either.

Check out all the positive reviews for this refurbished model. Great gun for the money. If you want to spend more for a nicer rifle the Trail NP is a great choice.
By mrkaether from Wisconsin on November 24, 2011

Answer:
Although the TitanGP looks like a TrailNP they are different.
Cost: TitanGP=$150
TrailNP =$250
Why, The TitanGP has lower quality included scope and scope rail than TrailNP.
The TitanGP does not have full shrouded barrel(more flex) TrailNP full shroud(less flex).
The TitanGP is shorter in length than TrailNP
Overall the the TitanGP has some differences than TrailNP but its still a great Youth/smaller shooter rifle.
The TitanGP also makes for a great "1st rifle" for someone looking for a good shooter under $200

By Douglas from Overland Park, KS on December 23, 2011

Answer:
I own both the N P Hardwood in 22 and the N P XL 1100. Both are excellent guns. The N P XL is over 9 lbs and one of the longest air rifles available. I hunt with my N P Hardwood and target shoot with the XL 1100. I am an experienced hunter, over 46 years, 6 feet 200 lbs. Both are equally accurate and well made. Also, the leverage needed to cock the XL is greater than the N P Hardwood. As you mention you don't want a huge gun, the XL is huge by pellet gun standards. It's as heavy as my heavy barrelled Weatherby Varmit Rifles. Doug V
By Jeremy from Baton Rouge , Louisiana on December 23, 2011

Answer:
Benjamin trail np .22 is everything you need, the xl is heavier and longer and since you arent tall that would be too much to carry. The np .22 is powerful and quiet.....best choice!
By Dave from Madison Wi on December 24, 2011

Hard to make that call for you sorry!
By jeff from Bartlett TN on December 26, 2011

Answer:
I would go with the hardwood. The stock is a bit shorter. I'm an average size man and the XL feels a bit long for me. Also, don't be too impressed with the XL's stats. The hardwood is easier to cock and STILL has all the knock down power you will need. If you are planning to use it as a hunter, go with the .22 version. I have been dropping squirrels for months with mine without any problem. Make sure you scrub and polish the bore right out of the box so you can start grouping pretty much right away.
By Dave from Kansas City Missouri on December 27, 2011

I got the Hardwood and it is amazing. I'm 6'1" and it fits me perfect but my wife really likes shooting it as well and she is only 5'3". We got it zero'd in within 25 shots and can now shoot a 1" group at 30 yards pretty easily. It is a really quiet gun as well and i think the .22 caliber is going to be really nice for hunting as well. The scope on the Hardwood is really nice as well and very easy to use. Happy shooting..

Answer:
I do not know about the benjamin trail np xl but I got the Benjamin Trail NP Hardwood .22 Cal Air Rifle and am satisfied with it. The scope needs to be Zeroed in but all the tools needed to do so came with the rifle. at 35' I can get 2" groups. which is fine for squirrel or quail. I have only put only 40 rounds through it so far others have stated that it may take 500-1000 rounds to tighten up the groups (though I did run a Bore Snake and cleaning oil through it straight out of the box). The cocking is easy and smooth, but the gun comes with the trigger adjusted so that there is ALOT of travel (1/2-3/4") though the manual says that the trigger pull can be adjusted so I am sure that can also be remedied. One last thing that surprised me was the muzzle noise. It doesnot bother me that much but for a rifle that is touted as being so quiet, there will be no silent sniping with this rifle. substantially quieter that a .22 rim fire rifle but much louder than my old .177 10 pump Crossman pellet gun. over all I like the look and feel of the gun the sling is substantial and very adjustable. construction and finish are good and tight. I would recommend this to anyone willing to put the time into tuning something that should be good enough to pass down a generation or two. hope that helps
