Worth every penny! Those who complained about accuracy are unfamiliar with springers/GP's.
November 22, 2014
First reactions when this rifle arrived: Nice wood stock. Good contours. Comfortable in both right hand and left hand. Nice metal finish. Well balanced. Relatively light weight which is a real plus on the field. There are lighter air rifles out there but lighter rifles will wobble too much when fired off hand making longer shots extremely difficult. Heavier rifles are easier to aim with because the sight/crosshair will wobble slower, but they are also harder to hold and carry. The weight of this rifle is just right. This rifle also have a short overall length compared to other rifles in the same power range. Combing all these qualities together, the rifle felt like a winner even before I fire it. The factory scope's optics gathered enough light and looked clear enough. Crosshair look fine enough for some casual target shooting and hunting; some cheap scopes came with thick crosshair which is only good for hunting. Shooting: The rifle is easy to cock and the operation is very smooth. Like all gas pistons, this rifle is very quiet for an air rifle in this power range. When I first got this rifle, it was shooting 3 to 6 inch unpredictable groups between 10-15 yards which is pretty useless for most situations. Without any adjustments, the trigger is only a little heavy but it is looong and extra creepy. (For a very long time, I bitched and whined about the trigger because I didn't know it is adjustable. LOL) The accuracy improved after the barrel settled down (roughly after 100-150 shots) and the rifle began shooting 2 to 4 inch unpredictable groups. I wanted to blame the accuracy problem on the trigger but I know the trigger is not heavy enough yet to be the real cause. I tried a different scope and it didn't help. I tried many different pellets of various weights and shaped but that only helped a little. I thought I got myself a lemon and used it as an excuse to buy more spring/gas piston air rifles. Several air rifles and tons of frustrations later, I finally realized that the real cause of the problem is ME! I was holding the rifle like a firearm which you absolutely can not do with spring/gas piston air guns (except recoilless ones and one or two other odd balls). You couldn't even put a spring/gas piton rifle on a rest and except it to shoot at its full potential. Lower powered springers/GP's are a lot more forgiving in this department but they are still hold sensitive. Realizing this opened new doors. Suddenly, I'm getting groups around 1/2 inch with most pellets at 25 yards (after I adjusted the trigger). Before I was holding the rifle correctly, H&N Sports JSB Jumbo Express used to spray all over the place. Now, JSB Jumbo Express became the most accurate pellet for my particular rifle. If the rifle was properly rested, JSB Jumbo Express will print 10 shot groups that looked like a single shot; the outer ring of the pellet hole will look a little darker due to extra lead residues but you can not tell that the hole is any bigger than a single shot. Most of Crosman Premier HP will print a slightly larger hole with a flyer or two with edges touching; brown box Premiers should produce less fliers and do better. Too bad that this kind of shooting it only good for revealing the rifle's true accuracy potential only. Spring/Gas piston air rifles are MUCH harder to shoot compared to PCP's and multi-pumps. There's no way that you could reproduce this kind of accuracy on a field unless you're shooting from a bench with all the time in the world to fire a carefully aimed shot. One VERY ODD thing I learned about my rifle is that it needs warm up shots no matter which pellet you use. From a cold barrel, shot 1 and sometimes shot 2 will land on the point of aim. Shot 3 all the way to about shot 12 will land close to point of aim but you'll not know if it would hit high or low or left or right. It will take 15 shots before the rifle settles down. Maybe this got something to do with gas pistons. Maybe this is just my particular rifle. Attached are some groups made with Crosman Premier HP (because I'm running low on JSB's). The scope was zeroed for JSB's and you'll notice that the CP pellets begin to hit higher as the rifle settles. If I allow the rifle to warm up first, I will be able to print groups around 1/4 inch. But I think groups fired from a standing position with a cold barrel will demonstrate the rifle's actual field performance a lot better. By the way, I didn't modify my Benjamin Titan NP in any way and the factory scope is back on the rifle. I only adjusted the trigger and used a little silicone lubricant. The pull is still long but at least the trigger is now much lighter with almost no creep. In my opinion, a trigger like this is actually desirable in a hunting rifle. It is heavy enough to prevent most accidental discharges even when your hand is gloved or number from cold weather. Yet, it is not heavy enough to make one's accuracy suffer.
Powerful yet vet very quiet. Smooth action and easy to cock. Very well balanced and relatively short overall length. Comfortable stock good for both left and right hand shooters. Relatively light weight. Excellent handling. Adjustable trigger. Inexpensive for the quality.
Trigger pull a little too long.

Great gun for the money. Remember to break in before complaining about accuracy. Mine took almost 500 rounds to settle in but will now shoot 10 shot groups at 25 yards that are better than expected.

I killed a Texas 6 point buck (california 3 point) with this rifle with a single shot. I was using crossman hollow tip ammunition and hit the deer right behind the ear. He was dead within 3 minutes. I was absolutely blown away...had no idea the rifle had lethal capability shooting an animal of that size.

Good, Upgradable Air Rifle
July 29, 2014
I recently purchased a Benjamin Titan rifle and found it to be very good quality for the money. It is quiet enough for backyard practice, provides velocities ranging from 745 fps (Crosman HP) to 970 fps (Gamo Raptor). The stock is hardwood and comfortable, and provided I clean the barrel often, I can hold 1/2" groups at 20 yards from a bench. I have found that the action screws loosened up and the accuracy falls off. I added Loctite to the screws, and for grins, glass bedded the stock and now accuracy is consistent. For those who know how to glass bed, this is a worthwhile effort. My complaints are the trigger and scope. I did not bother to mount the scope. I used an old Weaver 4x instead. The trigger has a nice 1st stage let off, but the release is too long, even with the set screw all the way in.
Quiet. The impact of the pellet is louder than the gun itself. Solid hardwood stock Velocity as published (verified by Chronograph) Good scope mounting Reasonably priced Hits hard
Scope is not good quality and does not give clear image Recoil is enough to loosen the action screws Too much travel in the trigger

I bought this gun less than a week ago and have already killed 11 rabbits, 3 turtles, and 6 birds. Kills rabbits instantly. Bought a centerpoint 4-16x40 scope and ordered some mounts that fit since the mounts with the scope were for a bigger rail. Great gun for the money!

Powerful and accurate
June 12, 2014
I had a pump pellet rifle as this to remove some vermin. Had issues at first with the scope and Air Gun Depot was very good about allowing a return but I didn`t want to return the rifle , just the scope...their policy at the time wouldn't allow a partial return, so I kept it....with more use I became more skilled using the scope and moving the mounts and shinning it to get it to finally hold adjustment on the tight side of the range for the elevation and windage. It has been a great adventure. Looking forward to a higher caliber next....I think everyone's issues with scopes and break barrels is with the barrel droop most of the time...try shinning first then make small elevation/windage adjustments to keep the keeper springs tight...scope will hold much better...if you need to shim too much, return the purchase for replacement...enjoy!
Easy to use, looks great, powerful, reasonably priced.
Needs better trigger, scope, compensate for barrel droop so scopes work better out of the box... supply better scope / mounting / adjustment instructions as a system...scope and rifle individually may be wonderful but they need to work together in tune.

Best money ever spent
May 19, 2014
I bought this gun 3 years ago and have fired over 11,000 rounds through it .It has put dozens of meals on our table and has never let me down. It will place 5 Crosman HP in less than half an inch at 20 yards all day long. I did replace the scope with a Centerpoint 4x16 and put a TR3 trigger in it when I first purchased it. I work out of town most of the time living in a travel trailer and this is when it provides game for the table.
Very inexpensive. Extremely accurate with cheap Crosman HP. Can upgrade trigger in less than 10 minutes. Also I do have the empty tins to show how many pellets have been fired through it.
My only complaint was the trigger and as usual the packaged scope. You can live with the trigger but not the scope.

Very Good Air Gun
April 14, 2014
I am 56 years old and have been hunting since I was 12. In my later years I deer hunted with a .270 Ruger M77 with a Leopold 3x9x40. Very, very accurate. I'm saying this to let you know that I am very happy with the Benjamin Titan Pump and Center Point optics and have no regrets in making this purchase. I used Loctite on the rings and after 7 shots I was on zero. The rifle seems to have plenty of power and sounds like an air operated nail gun. The trigger keeps it from getting 5 stars now but I'm not sure I have it adjusted all the way in. I put a Timney trigger kit on the .270 and had it adjusted to pretty much push button so I need to work on this one or maybe you guys can suggest a good trigger kit for me as I am new to air guns.
Great Value Would buy again.

Awesome airgun for the price
March 11, 2014
I bought this airgun and have had it for about 3 weeks and put about 500 pellets through it. I threw out the scope that came with it and added my new RWS 6 x 42 scope and boy this thing is very accurate. I hit pennies at 20 yards and this thing with pointed pellets goes right through a phone book. It has a nice quality hefty feel to it and the wood finishing is excellent.

Was very disappointed
February 28, 2014
Bought this for my son for Christmas and when we went to sight it in we where shocked at the power this gun has. It recoils like a strong rimfire .22 and we could not sight it in. The gun shot to the left 8-9 inches every shot. We started looking for problems and found the barrel was pushed all the way over in the stock. We had to send it back to the Airgun Depot which promptly sent us a replacement. The next gun shot all over the place and we tried cleaning in and checking all the scope mounting hardware. We finally switch out the scope and then it shot somewhat accurate. That lasted for about a month and a half then the stock broke and we had to send it back to Crosman. We are still waiting for a replacement.
Very powerful and nice looking gun
To much recoil and not very accurate and not built strong enough for the recall in my opion.

Excellent Air Rifle
September 20, 2013
I have owned this rifle for little over a year. Excellent rifle. Very accurate. Used bore laser to sight it in, then little adjustment to zero it in on paper target. Have been knocking down squirrels with one shot lately. It seems to like the Crosman Hollow Point pellets the best. Tried Pow Pella, Benjamin PCP, Daisy pointed pellets, etc. None worked as good as the Crosman Hollow Point for consistent accuracy. The scope needs to be tightened with blue thread lock to keep it from moving. Once you do this the consistency of accuracy improves a lot. The craftsmanship feel is good. The thumb hole feels great on the stock. Not too heavy like the Beeman Sports Series 22 cal. I also have. You won't be disappointed with this one.
Light, accurate, easy to cock. Well designed.
Single shot only. Would be nice if it were a semi-automatic for at least ten shots.

Having been raised on .22 cal long rifles as a child, and later as an expert rifleman in the USMC, I just wanted an inexpensive way to practice rifle marksmanship here at home without all the great costs & regulations associated with firearms. Fortunately my city does not have any regulations against air guns at all, only firearms. Once the neighborhood raccoons started attacking my dogs at night, I became really charmed by this rifle. The Benjamin/Crosman .22 cal NP will give its owner all of what I call %u2018meat & potatoes%u2019. My wife & I both shot quarter-dollar groups while breaking it in at about sixty feet (took us 120 rounds combined), and that was with the factory scope shooting at a target with a dime sized bullseye. After the breaking in period, I was shooting at the dark hole where the dime sized bullseye used to be. If you can%u2019t do this yourself, it%u2019s likely that your body positioning is very %u2018shooter%u2019 poor. I recommend sighting in on your target, closing your eyes for 10 seconds, see where your cross hairs have moved to, and then adjust by moving your body so that the cross hairs are once again aligned on the target. You might need to repeat this procedure until you get it right. Then shoot. A rifles%u2019 initial muzzle velocity is not a good estimation of its ability to deliver power & energy to the target done range. With a velocity rating of about 950 FTS that%u2019s about all that any air gun can produce and still maintain it%u2019s accuracy without running into it%u2019s spent projectile into a sonic wave barrier, so going beyond that is almost always a fools errand. Also, the .22 caliber will deliver almost 50% more energy to the target %u2018kill zone%u2019 then .177 rifles advertising 1200 FTS or more,. There are a lot of good articles on the web about velocity/trajectory/accuracy, and it%u2019s best to read them & understand ballistics prior to buying any rifle. That way you don%u2019t have to go backwards and figure this stuff out, and admit mistakes. & Those are two sites that provided me with the information I needed to make an informed air gun choice, and not be mislead about a rifle that advertises 1600 FTS but delivers relatively nothing to the actual target/kill zone.
Since it is a break barrel piston powered one shot design, the shooter immediately inherits a rifle that will deliver the same amount of air power each time the rifle is charged/cocked. You need that constant measure of power to really become a good shooter. If your shots are going high & low, look into moving your body to align the sight mechanism. Even if a shooter%u2019s trigger pull is bad %u2018jerking%u2019 your body weight is still much more than the weight of the rifle, and can hold you near center. Having left to right %u2018windage%u2019 trouble, consider getting a shooter%u2019s sling to hold your arm in place. Your arm doesn't want to twist outbound, and the sling will hold your arm from twisting inbound towards your body. I made my own out of nylon rope & electrical tape, wraps around the barrel of the gun in front, and circles my upper left arm at the tail.
There would only be 'cons' if the rifle wasn't upgradeable, which it is. The basic power structure is there, and it’s both powerful & accurate. Upgrade the trigger assembly first off, and the aftermarket has two notable choices: The GRT-III, and the GTX-II. I prefer the GTX-II based on the latest reviews, and the fact that it comes from a more reputable company. Next consider upgrading the scope assembly. A little more magnification isn’t going to hurt anybody’s eyesight. My factory scope does offer a clear immage, but it moves around do to recoil, so if a new scope is out of the question, then consider getting a better mounting device for it, mounts are innexpensive. I’m departing with the factory 3x9 this year, and am in favor of a 4x16 with an (AO) adjustable objective lens. This little not to expensive secret also gives the shooter instant range finding, plus expands the rifle & shooter capabilities. Happy shooting!

not for me
May 17, 2013
Can't get a good group. i Put 500 pellets though it and the groupings started to get better, then I put 500 more through and the scope started to fall apart (the internal cross hairs were shifting, had to move it until the windage and elevation knobs were cockeyed to square up the hairs.) I finally put on a real rifle scope. The gun seems to need ten or more shots to warm up before it groups well, elevation is all over the place. After it's warm, it shoots 4" groups at 50 yards, no better. Some shots are right on top of each other and some are a foot off. I have a 24" steel bell that I can hit at 100 yards pretty well after the rifle is really warm (after 50 shots). Once warm, 8 out of 10 dings average. 2000 shots and still not broken in. used crosman 14.3 gr, beeman 14.3 gr, powa pell 14.3 and exact 18gr with no definite favorite. This is my first pellet rifle, I'm a long distance competitor and maybe I'm expecting more out of this rifle than I'm able to get, but the fact that it has to warm up to shoot with consistency gives it two thumbs down.

Excellent Value Tack Driver
March 17, 2013
I really love this rifle. I have put about 400 rounds through it since it arrived about 3 weeks ago. It has preformed extremely well. I did not expect this level of performance out of a rifle that costs $149. The cocking effort is not too high and it is exceptionally quiet which is a big plus for taking rabbits out of the backyard without disturbing the neighbors. I have a Nitro Venom also and although the internals seem to be identical, I like this rifle more due to the thumb hole stock which is very comfortable and feels more natural to shoot than the stock on the Nitro Venom. The included scope is only marginal. I replaced it with a BSA AO model for $83 from Airgun Depot which is far superior. Don't think about it, just buy it. You will not regret the purchase. I have attached a picture of a target that I shot at 25 yards which is typical of the performance that I have gotten from this rifle. It really likes RWS Superdomes and does almost as well with the Crosman Ultra Magnums.
Very Accurate and capable of shooting much tighter groups than I am. Thumbhole stock is great Very quiet Plenty of power, I have taken 3 rabbits at 30 yds, one shot each.
included scope is only OK.

Great quality rifle
January 1, 2013
I bought mine about a month ago. Scope was good for about 25 yards. Out of the box, it took some work to zero it in but after that groups were very tight. However, I couldn't hit anything over 30 yards so I upgraded the scope to the BSA majestic 6x24x44 and it has made the biggest difference. Took it to the range and was blowing up clay pigeons (set them up on the ground) at 50-75 yards. I was extremely happy with the end result. Great power and amazingly accurate. This gun definitely deserves a better scope so invest in a good one, it will make the Titan more enjoyable!

Benjamin Titan Nitro GP/NP
November 9, 2012
I bought this gun about a month ago from Academy Sports here in Houma, Louisiana for $150. I needed a new air rifle for rabbit and squirrel hunting fast. So far it has worked great. I'm 14 and have hunted with a 20 gauge since I was 6. I'm getting a 12 for Christmas, but due to a medical issue, I was forced to use air guns in the woods by my house. Anyways, I sighted in the included scope at about 10 yards (30 feet) and the next day, I lost the zero. I re-zeroed it and it has kept zero since. So far I killed 2 squirrels and 3 rabbits (took down a monster rabbit Wednesday evening). I always aim for the head, but so far all my rabbits were hit in the side due to pellet drop, the poor scope, and distance. My squirrels have both been taken out cleanly with a single shot to the head under the ear. It has a nice weight to it, but I am used to it because my remington 870 youth is about the same weight.
Knock down power Accuracy Weight Grip Nitro piston Dampener on the muzzle Full steel outer barrel and receiver work great for removing spider webs out of my way. They are pretty tough after being dropped from shoulder height (about 5.5 feet off the ground) onto sticks and a log, and being used to hold back bushes out of my way.
Crappy scope. I recommend a leapers 3-9x40 illuminated mil-dot AO and a set of high dovetail mounts, or a weaver base. The barrel was pretty hard to open up but after I shot nearly 500 rounds through it, it loosened up a lot. Kind of on the heavy side but that just helps lessen the recoil.

My Titan was shipped promptly and arrived unblemished. You couldn't tell it from new. I have used a thousand pellets, enough to have it settle in. I love the rifle. The thumb hole stock and Nitro piston are keepers. My issue with this rifle is that the optics are not up to the rest of the rifle. My rifle groups well, which leaves me thinking it's doing its job. The scope is something else. My rifle requires sighting in every time I use it. If you think this is handy, it's not. Next time I'll pay the difference for new, and send back something that does not perform.

July 5, 2012
Excellent gun. I am not the best shot but I was concerned when I couldn't get decent groups when I first got it. I put about 500 shots through and the groups settled. With realistic pellets weights this gun shoots about 750 fps. Perfect for small game and some medium game and small predators. Don't hunt hogs with it unless you are absolutely certain of your placement. Short of using a large caliber pcp this gun will handle most or your airgun hunting needs. There are people who talk about changing a trigger. There is a forum owned by the maker of this trigger where instead of giving advice on the long trigger pull tell you to buy his trigger. I adjusted mine using the trigger adjustment screw and ended up just short of a hair trigger with what feels like no pull. As I shot it and broke it in I even had to add pull back in by readjusting. You do not need to spend $35.00 on a trigger. Just adjust the trigger as the manual describes and shoot the gun until it is broken in. This gun loves to be shot.
Great trigger Great power Great for hunting Accurate

I bought this rifle about two months ago. The 4x32 scope it came with was crap. Replaced it with a 3x9-32mm. Zeroed at 30 yds. groups ran about 1.25 in. Then after a couple hundred shots point of impact dropped about 4 in. Figuring that it was the "breaking in" period, I oiled the rifle and readjusted the scope. Over the next 1000 rounds, point of impact dropped three more times. Removed the scope and remounted, this time using loctite. After two more adjustments the rifle has finally settled down and is grouping 5 shots in 2.25 at 60 yds. I take Arizona squirel at that range often. It is DEADLY on crows in the 40-50 yd range. Scope and all, I"ve got about $240 in the gun, not bad for what it is capable of.
KNOCK DOWN POWER!! Hard hitting out to 50 yds. Took a jackrabbit at a ranged 37 yds. one head shot and it was over.
Scope it comes with is crap. On my rifle the "two stage" trigger, isn"t "two stage", but it is managable.

What else could one ask for
January 21, 2012
Purchased this gun about a year ago. The scope was trash and the trigger was hard to get use to. I put it in the closet for a few months and almost forgot about it. Decide to put some more rounds through it and all of a sudden it settled down and has become one of my best air guns. I have the .22 cal which has given me the opportunity to do away with local pest quickly and very quietly. My gun is very picky about the pellets it shoots so i stick with the crosman dome pellets because they pattern the best. I ditched the center point scope and mounted a bsa.

It's a good rifle for the price and you get the piston technology. I bought this and the stodgier x20 with the silencer and the Titan was way quieter. I like the action of pumping because it is really smooth. The gun is a good shooter but I have only plonked with it and I have yet to try it on paper to see how it groups.
Very smooth. Great price for a piston rifle
The wood stock is not finished that well.

Absolutely the smoothest shooting air gun on the market in this price range is the gas piston. This gun will make anybody a more accurate shot due to it's smoothness. The trigger is not the best but the average shooter will be much better a shot with the Nitro than a spring gun and they will not even notice the trigger. This gun is awesome for the price. Spend the money for this gun and be in air gun heaven.

The gun first of all fits your hand with the thumb hole stock beautifully , its a pleasure to shoot and hold. but the one draw back im finding is the trigger. horrible...but you can manage with some adjusting of the two stages. but other than that it is very quiet i shoot it in my apartment all the time with no complaints haha. also very great knockdown power and accuracy and penetration is awesome. good gun overall..

If scope is off center 12inches both down and left can it be brought up and over that much? thanks

That depends on the range of the target the farther the target the more you are able to adjust the scope, keep the rifle inside the effective range (75-125 feet)

does this gun hold more than 1 pellet at a time?
By Staff on July 9, 2012

No, the Crosman Titan Nitro .22 Caliber Air Rifle is capable of holding only one pellet at a time.

What is the best pellet to use in this rifle as for distance and accuracy?

By Dan from CA on June 15, 2012

From what I just read, the dome pellets seem to be the most accurate, but in all cases, one should try what they can afford, and put it on paper. A little time and effort makes all the difference.
