Welcome to the new world of break barrel American Muscle – introducing the NEW NPSS, Nitro Piston Short Stroke, break barrel air rifle from Remington. At the heart of this new technological break-through is a nitrogen filled gas piston, instead of a coiled steel spring. The Nitro Piston Short Stroke will not be adversely affected by temperature and allows for much easier cocking force. This gun can be cocked for long periods of time without degrading or losing velocity, like steel springs. This Nitro Piston technology dramatically reduces felt recoil by eliminating the double hit and spring torque associated with steel spring guns. While reducing recoil, the NPSS is also the quietest break barrel ever to come out of the Crosman factory, producing a 70% reduction in shot noise over leading models. Features shot velocities of up to 1200 with lead-free pellets. The Nitro Piston™ technology provides dramatically reduced noise and recoil which make it an excellent pick for varmint control and small game hunting. Independent research by Intertek found that Nitro Piston technology reduces noise by 70% during the shot cycle compared with traditional steel spring break-barrels!
Additionally, the NPSS is feature rich, providing a bull barrel, which minimizes the effects of barrel vibration while delivering better rigidity throughout the entire length, both of which promote greater accuracy. The stock on this new NPSS has a custom film dip process applied, plus a final soft touch coating which delivers vibration dampening characteristics to the entire stock. Also included is an enhanced trigger package of all metal construction and two-stage adjustable. Lastly, this gun comes ready to go with a 3-9 X 40 CenterPoint scope that features an adjustable objective and a mil-dot reticle for precision shooting.
Quiet, smooth and powerful – that is American Muscle.

The gun shot 6 inches low and 6 inches to the left on the first shots before making adjustments to zero the scope. I almost ran out of available adjustments before I was able to bring the shots up to the aim point.

i'm not as impressed with this rifle as everyone else is, it seems like i have to sight it in every time i use it! but it is a very powerful rifle, at 15 yards i shoot a 1/4" sheet of plywood and it went clean through it no problem! and its not as quiiet as i thought it would be, but still, not a bad rifle.

Answer:No CO2 cartridge required. It is a single shot, requiring only one stroke of the break barrel configuration to compress the nitro piston.

Answer:Very good gun for beginners, the only thing that I have a problem with is the guns noise. I thought it would be quieter, but I had nothing to judge from so it very well may be quieter than other guns. Good luck.

Answer:No you do not have to refill the nitrogen, the nitrogen camber replaces the spring camber and is sealed. The nitrogen compresses and decompresses to fire the rifle but does release any nitrogen to rifle the pellet.

Answer:The scope is adequate for what it is going on. The zoom is good out to 50 yards and the field of view is adjustable. The gun is a little lacking in stopping power, in my opinion.I use it for small game,grey squirrels, and it definitely is not a one shot one kill gun.
By Carter from Washington on February 11, 2012
Answer:The scope that comes with this gun (3-9x40 Centerpoint) is really great for this rifle.
By Carter from Washington on February 15, 2012
Answer:The scope that comes with it is a Centerpoint 3-9x40 AO scope.

Answer:I have tested many remington npss and I have never found the trigger to be to difficult. There is a bit of variation from gun to gun, but still, I would say they are pretty easy.
