All gas springs (gas pistons, gas rams) are NOT created equal! The Nitro Piston 2 has it all over the original Nitro Piston and almost every other gas spring on the market. Most gas springs have a reputation of being hard to cock, but the NP2 put an end to that. According to airgun writer Tom Gaylord, it's the easiest-cocking gas piston he's ever shot. But Crosman didn't stop the improvements there. They also improved the trigger so it feels like it's been tuned!

Imagine that: A factory trigger that breaks crisp and clean. It has a significantly lighter trigger-pull, not one of those so-called "lawyer" triggers that requires Herculean strength to shoot. As long as they were making improvements, Crosman decided to make a better and more effective integral sound suppression system that really is quiet. You'll notice an immediate difference between the report from your Nitro Piston 2 air rifle and the older Nitro Piston guns or other brands. So, let's add up what you'll get in this great package: Easy cocking, fantastic trigger and less noise. And, it's assembled in Crosman's plant in Bloomfield, New York. While that's almost everything you could ever want, there's one more thing

Feature
  • NItro-Piston 2 (gas piston)
  • Breakbarrel/Single-shot
  • 15% faster and double the effective shooting range
  • Smoother cocking Smoother shooting
  • No spring torque/spring fatigue
  • Clean Break Trigger(CBT)
  • Reduction in cocking effort
  • Ambidextrous
  • Textured grip and forarm
  • Manual safety
  • Includes CenterPoint Optics 3-9x32 scope and mount

"Nice Rifle"
October 27, 2014
I'm getting back into shooting again, it's been 15 years since I sold my Sheridan Blue Streak. I was looking for a rifle that was easier to shoot and load than the Sheridan, no more pumping and trying put load the pellet under the scope. I found the Sheridan very accurate from 50 feet and I wanted the same from this rifle. I had difficulty deciding on which cal to order so I ordered both, the 177 and the 22 cal rifles. The rifles were delivered earlier than expected, the package was very secure with no problems. I found the scope mounted very easily, I was shooting both rifles in a very short time. After shooting and sighting in the rifle I found a few minor issues with the scope, the screws came loose after shooting and had to be tightened after about 20 or 30 shots which was a nuisance, I resole the problem and used lok-tite on all the screws, I've fired about 100 shots with the screws still firmly secure. The other problem with the scope is I think it's sticking, when I made any adjustments to the elevation or windage it didn't seem to make any change, I even adjusted it 20 clicks and it still wouldn't show any change. What I did to resolve the problem is I would turn the adjustment 10 or 20 clicks in one direction and turn it back to it's original position, then make my adjustment. The rifle is a solid rifle, very well made, I was pleased with the feel and weight of the rifle, the cocking of the break barrel was a breeze, I did find it easier to break after a few hundred shots, it also is a little quieter now. I found the trigger the biggest problem, the travel on the trigger was much too long, even after making an adjustment, though I am starting to get used to it but it is still difficult to get any kind of a tight group. I purchased the rifles primarily for target shooting, i"m retired and I shoot for a few hours every day and I'm having a great time with them. I was in the Marine Corps in 1959 and I always enjoyed shooting, it's a great pastime. I would recommend these rifles to anyone
Pros:
A great rifle, good feel good design. Break barrel is easier than I expected. Not as loud as I expected, I live in a suburbs and it's quiet enough to shoot in my backyard without upsetting the neighbors. Overall very impressive appearance.
Cons:
Scope and trigger

After a lot of research, I decided to try this rifle. I am SO glad that I did!
July 10, 2016
I purchased my rifle in .22 elsewhere in an unbeatable sale. After doing a lot of research I put this rifle on my short list of rifles I wanted to buy, and I am so glad that I did. This rifle changed my opinion of how much accuracy I could expect from a break-barrel. After putting in a full tin of break-in pellets, I am now using my second tin of sight-in pellets and 9 times out of 10 I am hitting right where I am aiming at 25 yards. I use this mainly for pest control of ground squirrels, and I have already eliminated quite a few with this awesome rifle. The moderator after break-in works as advertised, this is the quietest airgun that I have ever owned. This is no doubt due to the gas piston being quieter than a spring to the person firing and the moderator quieting the shot down range. The squirrels seem confused by any occasional misses with no loud shot to spook them. The included scope, while not fancy, is more than adequate for the task. Cocking force is light and smooth.
Pros:
While I am much more a fan of traditional stocks, I have gotten used to this style stock, find it to be quite comfortable. Especially since they have molded the center of balance texturally into the stock so you always know where to put your off hand by feel. I really like that they have engineered a sturdy sling mounting system into the gun that will help you carry it easily into the field. While this gun is not too heavy by my standards, the optional Benjamin single swivel sling is certainly nice to have in order to keep your hands free while out and about all day. So if you have been looking for a relatively affordable, American break-barrel gas-piston air rifle that is quiet, powerful, accurate, and not incredibly hold-sensitive; buy this rifle now and see what I am talking about! It is a great rifle even at full price!
Cons:
While I haven't over-tightened the barrel shroud which would crack the plastic reducing cone as others have complained about, I can see how that could easily happen. Since the shroud, like all threaded applications on a spring/gas piston gun comes loose eventually during the violent recoil, maybe replacing that plastic cone with something tougher or redesigning the whole shroud connection could fix that potential weakness. The trigger is great so no changes needed there. The only other thing I would change is the addition of open iron sights would be a plus to me, I have always been a fan of those.

Like this NP-2
March 13, 2016
Bought one of these about a month ago . Wasn't that accurate out of the box . Owners paperwork says accuracy improves after about 250 pellets . So what I did was take a tin of pellets and a block of 2x4 and fired the whole tin into the wood in a couple of days . Now the accuracy is much improved , it shoots dead on . Trigger is a little lame , plan on replacing it with a Charlie Da Tuna one . In general I like the gun . The weight and feel is very good . I have read some negative comments about the scope but I find it more than adequate . Overall I 'm glad I bought this gun . Airgun Depot customer service could be better .
Pros:
accuracy now scope gun overall
Cons:
trigger

Good gun, but have patience
January 20, 2016
I bought this gun when it first came out. I had the scope rail fall off, but I have found that the crossman company is the best in customer service. They took care of the problem quickly. I also had the suppressor base cone crack. They sent me a new one free. The gun is extremely pellet picky. Through two years of trial and error I have settled on the JSB exact king and Beeman Devastators. The scope that comes with it is not good. But it's a $200 gun, what do you want? I put a nice UTG cope on it. This is a must for this gun. If you have a cheap scope, forget it. The gun is super light. The stock is really comfy. The cocking effort is easy after break in. The break in period is really long, so buy some cheap crossman hollow points for this. Be patient with this gun and you will be rewarded with a light, powerful hunter with a nice trigger action and good ergonomics. I can now shoot beer cans at 70 yards with ease. The gun will shoot a pellet through a paint can at that distance with ease. I have made head shots on doves from 50 yards ( I eat the breast so head shots are good). Keep the barrel clean.
Pros:
Light, quiet, powerful and comfortable to carry and shoot. It's a deal for the price. Crossman company stands behind their guns.
Cons:
Long break in. Super pellet picky. Initial problems with quality control. Scope should be left at the factory. I did use it on my 8 year olds .177 though.

Pros:
Shoots fast.
Cons:
Scope

Nice Rifle but the Scope is Garbage
October 21, 2015
Scope is JUNK Adjustment's not linear: smooth then it "jumps". Won't stay zeroed for more than a few shots.
Pros:
Rifle is OK, nothing special.
Cons:
Scope is junk.

An accurate rifle
July 15, 2015
Now on my third and maybe final Air Rifle, I have made the switch from a "Springer" to GAS. They are still both equalily loud and that is due to the mechanics of the rifle. You will hear the piston bang and loud it will be. I own a Marlin XT-22LR and my two Air Rifles bang almost if not equal to the gas explosion of the bullet. Fire Cracker loud if your looking for a comparison. That covers how loud. The Ben. Trail NP2 beat out both my Hatsan and my Ruger Air Magnum in several terms; weight& handle along with accuracy and ease of use. I sure did like Ruger putting the safety into the rear of the rifle but it seems all others really like Trigger housing placement. Not sure I agree with that placement but try and find one besides Ruger who put it safe. The groupings are great at 40 yards. At 50 yards the groupings get a little scattered but I can hit beer bottles at both 40 and 50 yards. I hit the most with this rifle. I also mounted a green laser sight beam off the scope. I have a UTG 4X16-40mm scope illuminated recticle. Set the ill Rec. to RED, shoot the Green laser down field and you got Night vision for $140. See / Search Amazon for the $30 Green Laser sight. In terms of 22LR Rim fire rifles most experts will tell ya to sight it in at 75 yards max; and your reaching at 100 to hit prey. In terms of a decent powered Air Rifle ya need to concede yardage back to 40/50. If you figure this; The market wants $200 for a decent rifle, $100 for a nice scope, throw a "Toy" on there like a Laser sight and your done at $350. This Rifle accomplishes my needs which is hitting targets consistently at 40 yards and I've had to take out a crow or two that just kept nagging and invading.
Pros:
Weight is just right; I did throw a slightly heavy scope plus a laser sight so it was important to keep the base unit(rifle) light. Barrel is perfect length and the cocking effort is good relative to what it takes to produce the power. Very slick design; I like the Trigger grip rather than a conventional Rifle set up.
Cons:
Its a decent Air Rifle but it's a Air Rifle. I think the Market has driven this rifle along with others $100 over its value but - thats the market. If the next version NP3?? hits the market and is set say at $149, that would make it the ideal rife. Trigger is a bit heavy. I know of a buddy who put the $35 into the replacement Trigger and it really made little difference. Shoot the gun, shoot it a lot. Your groupings will come as you strengthen your muscle-memory to the gun.

Fair air rifle at a fair price
May 10, 2015
Shot a few pellets thew it. Works well. Cover a 5 shot target pattren with a quarter.(50 meter indoor range) Used 4 different pellets all by Crosmen. Haven't used any of the ulta light penetrators yet. Suggest you use the heaviest pellets you can find. The ,177 pellets tend to wonder with the wind easly. They seam to have fixed the trigger issue of the passed versions.Just ajust the screw to fit your preference.
Pros:
Price,ease of use.fun shooting.a real plinker.Nice starter rifle to teach the kids the basics.
Cons:
Not a reel fan of the scope that came with it. Wish it had a set of iron sights.Had to shave off burrs around the barrel sleeve,(QA should have caught that one) and it spins when you cock the spring. Really have to suck it in to the shoulder to keep a shot pattern. A little jumpy.

Benjamin Trail NP2 (22 cal)
January 21, 2015
Due to the two years and counting .22 lr shortage, I decided to revisit the air gun market. I must admit my previous experience (years ago) with spring piston guns had not impressed me, but I decided to look into what was now available and give it another go. I am very glad I did. Right out of the box I was impressed with the 22 caliber, Benjamin Trail NP2. The gun's size, stock design and weight seemed perfect for my 6'4" frame. Overall fit and finish was mush better than I expected at this price point, in fact it is excellent. After a quick bore cleaning and mounting the supplied scope I set about learning the gun. It quickly became obvious that the gun wanted to shoot well, but was hindered by the poor optics. Not having another air gun rated scope on hand, I mounted a spare Bushnell TRS 25 red dot. Even without magnification and despite my 63 YO eyes the gun produced 20 yard, 10 shot groups as shown. (Note the centered 8 shots were fired after minor windage adjustment.) To make a long story short(er), I will just say I'm glad I gave air guns another look and very happy with my choice of the Trail NP2.
Pros:
Accurate Power Excellent ergonomics (stock fit) Relatively quiet A real scope rail that makes mounting any optic easy
Cons:
Supplied scope does not do the gun justice. (understandable, as no one should expect a $200 scope to be supplied with a $200 gun.)

Quite and easy to cock
January 6, 2015
This is a nice rifle at this price range. First impressions were...Rifle looked nice, felt good when I shouldered it and it was easy to cock and pretty light. Within 25 rounds it seemed to shoot pretty well at 25 yards in a sitting position. It grouped at about a quarter size. As stated earlier is was easy to cock and very quite, sounded like a PCP gun. It shot the Crosman Premier Hollow Points, Crosman Premier Ultra Magnum Dome Pellets---both at 14.3 grains----seems to like these pellets the best, It also shot the JSB Exact Jumbo Heavy 18.3g pretty well. I just wished that it came with better optics as usual. The way Crosman brags about this shooting further than most gas pistons and other springers in its price range, you would think that they've bundle it with better optics to see at those range.
Pros:
Nice feel to it, easy to cock, quite, I like that they finally put some scope rails on it to help prevent scope slide. The price is affordable.
Cons:
The furnished 3x9x32 non AO scope with only 3 mildots, instead of full mildots for more range of adjustments is a disappointment. It just doesn't do justice for this gun.

December 20, 2014
I'm hearing everyone had problems with these rifles from I guess the first batch but I just got mine this past week and killed a quarter pounder dove from a 45 yrd distance IMO it stands up for itself next I'm gonna try hog hunting at a 15 yrd shot.
Pros:
Powerful and accurate
Cons:

An adult airgun
November 26, 2014
Shoots hard, kicks like a mule & very hold sensitive. Does not shoot to manufacture's claim in any area, but still is fun to shoot, so if you want a challenge this is the airgun for you.
Pros:
Well made
Cons:
Does not live up to manufacture's claims

Made in America, optic choice is a China paper weight
November 19, 2014
I shopped and compared for quite some time. Heard about the new NP2 and decided to hold out. I opted for the Camo version and learned of production set-backs due to contractor short-cuts, so after a 6 month + wait reordered a .22 Black. It is a great rifle and after 200 pellets thought I had it dialed in. I rechecked the scope mounts, everything tight, sand bagged in to take some of the variable out, yep! The scope is a cull, as "I shot out both turrets" (same memo I sent to Crossman/Benjamin). I would have bought the air rifle without the scope, but the cheap optics should have been left out of the "package." Would anybody order a new sports car with recap tires? Disgusting! I will order a "quality optic replacement" and realize the fine shooting potential this rifle has.
Pros:
Good weight, fit (ambidextrous), safety placement, finish, thumbhole stock, re-engineered trigger/adjustable, and magnum harvest power! Great Rifle!
Cons:
Top sharp edge of stock needs to be chamfered to avoid cuts. Offer a $ credit for optics or leave it out of the deal.

Number two hope it holds up
September 10, 2014
I bought a wood stock NP-2 same gun just a wood stock. See my review. I like this stock better so do my shooting buddies. My first trail NP-2 broke after about 700 rounds. The scope rail witch is spot welded to the gun came off right after I pulled the trigger. I had this less then two weeks when this happened. Air Gun Depot stood behind it. I up graded to a Hastan 155 in the 22 cal. I mounted a 6x24x40 AO BSA scope to both guns and that improved the accuracy buy 30%. This is a 20 to 40 yard gun. I have taken a ground squirrel at 60yd on 1 nice shot. I shoot these guns for target fun with other shooters at our home.I have an out door rang and it is a real hoot to shot. I fallow the owns manual on gun care and I believe this to be important to the life of the gun. The Trail NP-2 seem to have a 2 to three shot group ,the 3rd or 4th shot seems to fly.(just dose) If you want a break barrel gun, this shot nice, I just hope the scope rail stays on this one. Rob I bought the second one before the first one broke.
Pros:
Shoots ok I would buy / I did buy another one. The rubber stock fits better(I think) Easy to cock and hits hard. 22 Cal
Cons:
Week scope rails / needs up graded scope also

I love this NP2
August 18, 2014
I purchased the .22 NP2 August 5, 2014. I love this air rifle because it is very quiet, powerful, and accurate. It is very easy to cock and easy to hold. I've shot 600 plus Crossman hollow point pellets through it so far. I've taken six Squirrels and all were taking my tomatoes. Some of them were eating the tomatoes as they were taken. I shot these Squirrels at a range of 20-25 yards holding the NP2 free-handed. All were one shot one kill. I do not like the scope that came with it, but have not replaced it yet. A different scope will be on my Christmas list. It took me a short while to adjust the scope, but it was easy. I printed free targets online to set it up. I was concerned about how loud it would be because I have close neighbors. You can rest assured it is quiet enough they want even know what the noise is when you shoot it. It's more like a thump. This thing is powerful, when I hit these Squirrels they dropped instantly and barely even flinched. My Squirrel problem is now under control and am getting tomatoes now! I love target shooting now because I'm confident I can hit right where I aim consistently within a quarter sized area at 20 yards. I think this is because the trigger is more like a real gun. It does not take much pull at the second stage to fire so the gun does not move in the direction of the pull (I'm left handed no pull to the left). Buy one and shoot a tin of pellets through it then you will be use to it and you should experience what I'm experiencing. Please do not comment on the rifle or any other rifle until you've shot a tin of pellets through it. I almost did not purchase this NP2 because of negative reviews. I'm glad I took a chance on this one. I absolutely love it!

Why didn't they just do this to begin with!
August 11, 2014
I have serious doubts to the claim of 1200 FPS! I own the 1st version with the Realtree Camo stock and that rifle's claim is 950FPS, your lucky if it will shoot at 800FPS. I know that they make that claim using either plastic or lead free pellets but it would be nice to have a lead pellet velocity posted on the box or the claim as well. Another thing that has me wondering is why the downgraded the scope to a 3-9x32, Mine at least came with the Center Point 3-9x40AO scope a much better scope that what is offered on this rifle. Lastly I contacted Crosman last year when they first announced this new version 2 and asked if I could get the new power plant piston for my version 1. They said no they are not compatible with each other. That makes me a little angry knowing that I should have waited to buy my Benjamin!
