Please Note: This rifle may be branded as either Crosman (#C8M22NP) or Benjamin (#BW8M22NP). This is the same air rifle and same manufacturer. Crosman is phasing this model into the brand name Benjamin, but no changes have been made to this air rifle. If you would like to speak with Crosman USA, you may reach them at: 1(800)724-7486.

This is the future of spring guns...the gas piston powerplant. No need to get pummeled with recoil or miss a target due to rough shooting characteristics. To find a breakbarrel that shoots this smooth, you'd have to pay a lot more money. The Crosman Titan is a bargain waiting to be discovered!

does this come with a scope?
what is th condition?
is it used?
is it wood or composite?
thank you.
By Staff on July 2, 2012


The Crosman Titan Nitro Air Rifle does indeed come with a scope. The condition of this rifle is refurbished by the manufacturer. Please let me know if you have any other questions.

By taylor from utah on July 12, 2012

Yes, it comes with a scope, great condition. It's refurbished and I believe that it is wood.
By Chevota from CA on July 31, 2012

It's in like new condition, you wouldn't be able to find it if placed next to new guns. The stock is wood and looks fine to most people, but it's not a great finish. I think it looks just fine, but you're not going to get an expensive Walnut stock for this price. It is however impressive looking when you consider the price. I suppose you could refinish it with a better stain if you felt so inclined and/or a shiny clear coat if that's your thing. I've read about a few people who have done it and they liked it, but no first hand experience, yet. It's a great gun, you can't go wrong with it.

How is the refurb quality on this gun? Seems like a good price for a Nitro Piston air rifle.
By Eric H. from Troy.Mo on November 11, 2011

When I purchased this product,I knew it would be money well spent but I can truly say that I am extremely happy.I,technically,have bought a hand-inspected rifle of which,I couldn't ask for more.It works great!

What is the optimum effective range on this rifle?
By reggie from springfield il on April 2, 2012

75 yds.
By Walter Corneto from Santa Rosa, Ca on April 2, 2012

Hello; I set up my target about 20 yards away and was able to hit the bulls eye with no problem,, its a great gun
By Rich from Conroe, Texas on April 2, 2012

I have my gun sighted in for 150 foot. This works best for me and at that range it has a lot of knock down power. I originally had a wood backstop for my targets but had to go to steel. Wood wouldn't last long with my gun being .22 caliber. With the damage my gun will do at 150 foot, I'm sure I could stretch the range out further but at 150 foot, it's on the mark almost every shot and it kills most everything I shoot at on my property. I love this gun.
By Denny from Minneapolis on April 2, 2012

I have mine sighted for 100 feet and it is lethal at that range for smaller animals and Canada geese. I have not tried it on any thing larger or at geater range. I have found it to be consistently accurate (with significant hold-over) out to about 100 yards.

I found my"reconditioned" rifle to be in excellent condition and feel it is an exceptional value.
By Dan from CT on April 2, 2012

As a regular shooter of regular firearms, I did not know how powerful this air rifle could be. This was a test weapon for me. From what I can tell it is comparable to a 22 short. 60 yards would be a good hit on any small game. I'm a target shooter but really like this rifle.
By Matt from Kalamazoo, MI on April 2, 2012

Well, that's a tricky question. As far as accuracy, there is a bit of drop off after 40 yards. Simple Kentucky windage can correct for this. As far as kenetic energy, I would think it also drops off at the 40-60 yard mark. I would be comfortable hunting at ranges 40 yards and less. With a good scope with mildot reticles, you could probably keep respectable groups at 60 yards or more. Just remember it is a break barrel pellet rifle, they all have their limitations. I would think this one hangs up there with other comparable brands and models.
By Rene from Nashville, NC on April 3, 2012

It has been effective for me out to about 45 yards on small game and can go through tin cans at 70yards with a little hold over, I have mounted a leapers 3x9x50 on mine and it makes for a good stable shot picture.

By Curtis from on December 12, 2011
Hello, what was wrong with the gun? I would like to know before I purchase it.

By Josh from Gainesville, FL on February 27, 2012

I couldn't even tell mine was refurbished when I got it. Also, the first few hundred rounds can be rough from what I have read when buying new. With the refurbish got mine sighted and haven't had any break in issues.

By Scott Surgner from Burlington, VT on March 14, 2012
what is LOP (length of pull) from end of butt pad to trigger?
What do you think of the scope?
Can open sights be mounted on this using a shrouded or ramped front and notched rear sights?
Real wood stock and fore grip?
Thanks very much,
Scott Surgner
Burlington, VT
By Matt from Kalamazoo, MI on March 15, 2012

It is 14 inches from trigger to butt. The scope and mounts aren't that great, but not bad enough for me to justify upgrading yet. The scope has held zero through about 750 shots so far, can't complain too much (I have been shooting chipmunks at 20 yards without a problem). You can NOT mount open sites to it without drilling and tapping holes, I wouldn't recommend it. The stock is real wood; the grain pattern is painted on, however. It has a nice heft and the thumbhole/pistol grip stock feels natural to me.
By Justin from Oceanside, CA on March 15, 2012

LOP is 13-1/2" long, the scope is acceptable, 4x32mm fixed power. It works and its bright and clear, wide field of view but it has no mil dots for shot drop compensation. This gun deserves a more powerful scope, i settled with a crosman centerpoint 3-9x40mm scope. The stock scope is an ok entry level scope. As your skills improve and you take further shots, you will eventually want to upgrade your optics. As far as iron sights, i wouldnt bother with them, i have not heard of anybody successfully installing iron sights onto a titan, why would you? The stock scope focuses down to 7 or 10 yds with no problems, and makes easy work of gophers or paper punching at 10yds all the way out to 50yds ore more. I bought a titan and tuned it for my brother inlaw for his birthday. He has been killing squirells at over 75yds with his .22 rifle. The entire stock is made of wood, i like my gun alot. I also own an NPXL 1100 and a marauder, and i find myself shooting the titan alot for casual plinking or mid range pest controll. The tItan is incredibly easy to cock and very easy to shoot accurately. The only thing i reccomend is getting an aftermarket trigger for it. Spring guns (nitro piston guns also) are sensitive to their hold and a stiff trigger makes it difficult to "float the gun" using the artillery hold. If you want a nearly match grade trigger instead of a lawyer trigger with a 8lb or 9lb pull, check out the grt-III trigger, (aka; charlie da tuna). I dont think you wil be disappointed with your titan dude, great gun and outstanding customerservicefrom crosman if you do encounter any problems down the road. Good luck man!
By Ray from Port Charlotte Florida on March 16, 2012

The lop is 13 3/4 inches, the scope is a quality air gun scope, very clear and was easy to sight in, I don't think you could mount open sights without taking it to a gun smith. The Stock is real wood and very good quality. This air gun surpassed all of my expectations! It is very quite, all you hear is a click. When shot into the water the pellet makes more noise when it hits than the gun does . It is also very accurate. At 30 yards. when shooting a 3 shot group all three were touching! I am ordering another for my Son so we can take them Squirrel hunting next season. My gun looks brand new. I can't tell it was ever used before. I hope this helps you, as you can tell I am very satisfied with my gun! It beats my 177 spring operated gun hands down.
By robert from East stroudsburg, PA on March 16, 2012

Hello Scott,

The scope is Actully a pretty decent piece. The rifle has no provision for iron sights so if you want them you will have to drill and tap. The stock is all wood and the ergonomics are excellent. The price they are asking is so low it's ridiculous, you would be nuts to pass it up.

By lanos from orlando FL on December 13, 2011
could the scope be taken off?

By Staff on December 29, 2011

yes. you can swap it out for any scope.
By Conor from Sunnyside, WA on January 28, 2012

It can be taken off, but there is no open how would you aim?
By Mac_Daddy from Mendon, MI on May 13, 2012

keep both eyes open and focus on you target over the barrel
By Chevota from CA on July 31, 2012

You can use open sights if you really want to. You'd need to drill/tap two holes in the breach block for the rear sight. The front sight you'd need to remove the muzzle brake, then glue/silicone on a regular plastic sight, both front and rear are available from Crosman for cheap. The barrels of guns with a muzzle brake are slightly smaller in diameter, that's why the need for glue. Guns with open sights also have a notch cut on the end of the barrel so the sight only goes on one way. The inside of the sight matches to fit, so you'd either need to grind out the extra plastic in the sight, or simply install it as far as it goes and call it good. Another option is to buy a whole new barrel for it. It'll probably cost about $15, plus another $10 for misc parts and sights, then $4 shipping, all direct from Crosman.
You could also put a smaller home made sight directly on the muzzle brake, glue or weld your piece directly to it. Or you could cut a groove in the brake with a saw, then glue in a flat piece of plastic or metal in it and cut to shape and height. Or make or buy something that can bolt to the brake once holes are drilled/tapped. I think keeping the brake and adding a small sight to it would be much cooler than the big ugly oem front sight. I prefer scopes myself, so the way it is perfect imo.

By Johnny from Detroit, MIchigan on June 15, 2012
How many pounds does this air gun take to pump? Could a 12 year old do it? Does it get easier to cock if it is broken in?

By Staff on June 15, 2012

Hello Johnny,
The cocking effort of this particular gun is roughly 31 lbs. My 13 year old brother can cock this rifle, however, he finds it somewhat difficult. The cocking doesn't necessarily get any easier once the air rifle is broken in. Please let me know if you have any further questions!

The Airgun Depot Customer Care Team
By taylor from pc, Utah on July 12, 2012

Yes, a twelve year old could do it, however, it would take some getting used to. And its refubished so its already broken in.
By david from new England on July 12, 2012

i would say not for a 12 year old.
You put rifle but on hip, tap the end, and the barrel pivots - you insert pellet and close. Not multiple pumps.
It does take some strength and technique. I would guess 35-40 lbs.
By Chevota from CA on July 31, 2012

Mine takes a peak of 28lbs to cock. It takes 8lbs just after you crack it open, climbs to 24lbs at 90 degrees, then 28 a few inches before it catches the trigger. I write it down as 8-24-28. Guns with coil springs are easier to cock so you might consider those. For example I have several coil guns (otherwise identical), the hardest one to cock is 3-19-26, the easiest is 3-16-21. The difference is between the two coil guns is primarily friction, the heavy one is as-is out of the box, the lighter one is after I tuned it. Tuning is fairly easy, especially if reducing friction is your goal. Use will also reduce friction, but it takes a lot of shots to do it. I guess it all depends on how strong the kid is.... The coil guns are also cheaper if that's a factor. Something like a referb Quest or Phantom can be had for $60-70 or so. You'll probably want to get one with a scope too, they're only about $10 w/ the gun, and totally worth it imo. I don't use open sights on any of my break barrel guns, only my Daisy Red Ryder...

By Adam Ellison from Provo, Utah on March 15, 2012
Is this different from the Crosman Titan GP - Lower Velocity? I"m trying to find out if the velocity is actually 950 FPS: the same gun is advertised on PyraMyd Guns website with the label "lower velocity" and is advertised at 695 FPS. Any ideas?
By Staff on March 16, 2012

This is the higher power version of the Titan not the lower velocity version. However, I think you will get around 750 FPS max with a normal lead pellet.

We have the Titan lower velocity gun on sale this weekend only for $74.99 . A lot of our customers prefer this because it's easier to cock, has a smoother action and still has plenty of knock down power for hunting. You will get around 650 FPS with a normal lead pellet and around 700 FPS with alloy.

By Harry from Bismarck, AR on February 10, 2012
If you buy a [pre-order] rifle how long will it take to get it
By Staff on February 10, 2012

When we receive the item we ship it out same day and then it takes about 3 days in transit to get from our location (Utah) to Bismarack, AR, so about 3 day after the 13th.

By Erik from Albuquerque, NM on February 11, 2012
On average how many times do you pump per shot? Is it a single pump or several pumps?
By Staff on February 20, 2012

This is a single pump break barrel rifle.

By Peter from New York on November 17, 2011
How long does it take to reload this gun?
By Howard from Illinois on November 23, 2011

Reloading is quick, even with my fat fingers.
Break barrel, pick up pellet, place pellet in barrel, close barrel.
By Sidney from Cleveland, Ohio on November 23, 2011

4-5 seconds if your ammo is handy

By taylor from pc, utah on July 12, 2012
How is the refurbishment on this gun.
By Chevota from CA on July 31, 2012

Don't worry about it being a referb, it's not someones old gun they traded in or anything like that, it's most likely because of something simple like a damaged box or a new return because the customer didn't like something. Many guns are returned because they're used to firearms and they don't know how to sight it in or shoot it to get accuracy from it. Also many complain about the trigger as with most all Crosman/Benj/Rem guns, but it is easily fixable. The scope usually needs a couple adjustments too, again very easy fixes, but many expect everything to be perfect and as easy to shoot as a firearm. So they're basically new guns that people didn't want and are in new condition and everyone will tell you the same thing too. They're probably better than new because they've been given a good look-see by Crosman to be sure it's ok vs the original QA dept in China...

By Mark Riggs from mesa, az on June 22, 2012
I see this gun advertised as a 'GP' @ 43, & 43.5" and 'NP @ 43.5 & 47". What is it? A friend bought an 'NP' but the box showed 'GP'!?
By Chevota from CA on July 31, 2012

I'm not sure what the GP stands for, probably just part of the model name, but the NP means it has a Nitro spring vs the usual coil spring. I've never seen or heard of one with a coil spring, so as far as I know they're all Nitro.
Mine is 44", the 43 or 43.5 might be who/how they measured it. Longer like 47" would be the Trail XL version. And of course typo's are common too.

By James from midlothian va on February 15, 2012
can you buy sights for this gun even though it has none
By Staff on February 23, 2012

A scope or other optics are the only sights you can mount on this gun.

By Walter Dube from La Marque, Texas 77568 on March 22, 2012

There is a sealed chamber of nitrogen in place of the spring chamber that compresses and decompresses just like the spring chamber. Nitro piston chambers are easier to cock and keep there power in cold weather better than spring chambers.

By John from Mesa, AZ. on February 18, 2012
Where does it get Nitrogen from??
By Staff on February 24, 2012

It is a sealed chamber of gas that compresses like the spring in other rifles, when the piston is released it pushed air (normal air) and the pellet out the barrel. As the chamber is only compressed and then uncompressed, staying sealed, no gas is used and thus wont need refilling.

By Andrew from Green Bay, WI on July 18, 2012
Would this take down rabbits?
By Chevota from CA on July 31, 2012

Absolutely! Even if it was half the power it would, although this power level is more humane. This is an excellent gun any way you look at it, great looks, great performance, comes with a scope, and the price is outstanding for what you get. I love mine! Don't worry about it being a referb, it's most likely because of something simple like a damaged box or a new return because the customer didn't like something. Many guns are returned because they don't know how to sight it in or shoot it to get accuracy from it, spring guns are very different than a firearm so you have to know a few things first. The trigger is a problem with most all Crosman/Benj/Rem guns, but it is easily fixable. The scope usually needs a couple adjustments too, again very easy fixes. So they're basically new guns and everyone will tell you the same thing. This gun is also the most powerful in it's class thanks to the nitro piston. You'll probably see around 10% to as much as 40% more power than similar guns with coil springs. It's basically like a coil gun that has been tuned, not just for power, but smoothness and quiet. It cocks and shoots much nicer and quieter than a typical coil spring gun. You really can't go wrong with it, especially at this price. Feel free to ask owners here or in the review section about it, most are happy to share and have great things to say about the Titan. Complaints are usually what I mentioned earlier, but those are all easy fixes.

By mike from ny on February 2, 2012
will this rifle be enough to take care of some pesty squirrels?
By Josh from Gainesville, FL on February 27, 2012

Definitely on the squirrels. I would think it would take out larger varmits like raccoons or possums. This gun packs a serious punch.
By Maurice from Doral, Fl on July 5, 2012

Yes, this rifle can take care of squirrels and pigeons at distance, in my experience, 50 yds max. But large varmints as raccoons you must be closer, at least 25 yds

By shep from buford ga. on February 20, 2012
how loud is this gun,can i use in a subdivision.

By Mike from Los Angeles on February 27, 2012

I am using it in the middle of Los Angeles, and nobody has complained. I don't think that it's very loud, considering the power of the rifle. It is no louder than someone hammering a nail, IMO.
By Matt from Kalamazoo, MI on February 27, 2012

It seems relatively quiet because of the short shot cycle. The sound of the pellet hitting a squirrel is about as loud as the gun itself. I shoot it an apartment complex without complaints, but my neighbors are all fairly lax. Depends o your neighbors, their proximity, sound conditions and local laws. I shoot it from inside typically, so the noise has nowhere to go. That way all that is heard outside is the whack of the big .22 pellet on your target. In summary, probably a little too loud with up tight, close neighbors; otherwise, you should be fine. I do recommend the gun though, especially for the price. Hope this helps.
By Jim from Birmingham, Alabama on February 27, 2012

This gun is extremely quiet I would definetly use it in a subdivision
By Stephen from St Clr Shores, MI on February 27, 2012

I too live in a subdivision. It is the perfect environment for a gun like this. Powerful enough to easily take care of squirrels, but quiet enough so no one notices.
It is not exactly whisper quiet, but I think the loudest part about shooting is the pellet hitting the target. I was shooting from inside my attached garage & my wife who was right inside the house had no idea.

It is a beautiful gun for the money. The scope is mediocre, but the gun is great. Powerful, quiet, & very well built. I have had mine for under a week & I can't stop shooting it.
By robert from East stroudsburg, PA on February 27, 2012

I brought Titan and a stoger x20 with the silencer on it, after shooting both I was surprised to hear the stoger was much loader (and it has a built in silencer) I have noticed that the heavier pellets the quiter it gets. I think you will be ok with this rifle. I love mine and the price is good too.
By Robert from Lawrenceville, GA on February 28, 2012

The gun is not very loud at all. Other reviewers have said that it becomes less noisy once it is broken in. The only sound heard with my Crosman Nitro is when the pellet hits the target with a "plink" sound. I use my gun in a subdivision where the neighbors are within 20 feet. No concerns from the neighbors have been voiced.

By jim from hartford ct on June 29, 2012
is this a single pump or a multi pump weapen
By Staff on July 2, 2012

The Crosman Titan Nitro Air Rifle is a break barrel rifle. that requires absolutely no pumping.

Does it have warranty?
Lets say I buy one and It doesnt work properly of course I want to return it. So, could you specify the warranty?
By Staff on February 28, 2012

We have a 30 day return policy, so if it does not work properly then yes you are covered.

By Paul from Greenville, SC on April 14, 2012
This question applies to break-barrel rifles in general, and I am hoping that people with experience shooting both break-barrels and other powerplants will answer. How much does charging impact accuracy in a break-barrel air rifle? It seems to me that even a tiny deviation in where the barrel finally comes to rest would impact accuracy - even more so as range increases. Is my concern realistic?
By Staff on April 20, 2012

Your concern is realistic. If a break barrel rifle is thrown around a bunch, the mechanics can become loose and the accuracy will suffer. deviations will be slight over a long period of rough use. If the gun is handled properly, this will take years and may never happen at all. If accuracy is of utmost importance though, I would recommend putting up the money for an RWS side lever rifle. Very accurate and powerful.

I hope this helped a bit.
