It’s quiet! The Remington® .22 delivers reduced vibration and felt recoil with velocities of up to 1000 fps. Excellent for hunting and target shooting in all weather conditions, it won’t let you down.

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.

LOOKS and FEELS like a rimfire, not an air rifle
November 12, 2011
From the moment I opened the box I knew the Remington NPSS was the best choice for me. After reading about all the different choices out there I wanted to add another quality Remington to my collection. The NPSS came complete with everything to start shooting, I had no problems at all with scope mounting, or break in. Zeroing was super simple due to the consistant Nitro piston power. Break in took 2 days and on the 3rd day I got my first kill at night. At about 35 yrds a rabbit through the heart. I also have a Crosman 140/ pump which dosen't even compare to the the NPSS power. Remington makes a solid feeling, smooth shooting, quality air rifle at a fair price. The best part is on the receiver, it says made in the USA.
The scope is awsome crisp and clear, the adjustable check rest makes the rifle fit perfectly, adjustable trigger is ok.
Whats not to like?

Outstanding airgun
October 26, 2013
So far this has been nothing but outstanding. This one doesn't even have the dreaded "barrel droop:. I bought a top rated one piece mount and a 4 to 12 BSA air gun scope. That was all it took to make this a great rifle. Using Diabolo jumbo pellets, this is deadly up to 60 yds. The red squirrels do not like it and I don't blame them. I ordered the cameo one because it was $10 cheaper than the black. It was out of stock so the airgun people sold me the black one for the same price--gotta love that. The only nitpicking item I can come up with is the barrel sleeve will come loose sometimes during the cocking process. It is easy to just give it a twist and let it go at that. Accuracy is great with the right ammo, and it hits like a brick.---Love it---
Long barrel makes cocking effort less than average, barrel lock is solid, stock fits me just right ( 5' 5" 165lbs)
Barrel sleeve comes loose, not a big deal--make sure the pellet is flush with the barrel or it will deform the pellet. I use a pellet pen, but if you don't have one use a wooden dowel to push the pellet home. Using your fingernail will also deform the pellet.

old crosman gun builder
January 7, 2013
I use to build for crosman. I bought this gun at an employee price. I have shot many different pellet guns. This one is by far the best ever, and I've shot a lot. For the person who can't shoot a starling, you should go back to nerf guns I've shot channel cats (catfish) woodchucks, beavers, and even a wild pig all within 35 yards. It is quiet and accurate as any gun out there. If you can't hit a bird without killing it you're better off not shooting anything. For the person that recommends a .177 cal, Thats good for grandmas garden but not for small game hunting ...... Thanks
Scope, weight, adjustable trigger, chin rest, stock, easy break, and accuracy in grouping.

Consistent and Reliable
September 4, 2012
I bought this in the other stock color, which I assume is now phased out. I have had it for a couple of years now, and the squirrel population has been affected more than with my other guns. The only thing I can say in answer to the folks that criticize this gun is they must really be spoiled. I went from shooting the average 40-50 buck gun to this rig and the results speak for themselves. For years I was hung up on having a repeater or anything other than a single shot. My mistake, because I am much more productive with this single shot than I have ever been with my other guns. Things I don't like: Weight is too much for an old guy. It seems both difficult and awkward to cock, IMO. Last but not least..... Loudness...This one is all over the place. From shot to shot it varies- I believe if you shoot it two or three times in a row, it quiets down, but with my habit of going about a day between shots, sometimes this thing is loud. All in all, this is a surprisingly powerful and accurate gun: if you have been shooting the discount store variety you are in for a surprise.

Great Gun
May 9, 2012
Had it about a year now and still shooting great. One tip is buy a bunch of different ammo to see which works better for your situation. I bought about 10 different kinds and found that some work better than others but the best I think is the Gamo PBA . The scope is pretty good for the price. Have killed many rabbits at 30 yards with one shot. Make sure to clean the gun every 250 or so shots for best performance because the barrel and silencer gets gummed up and lube the moving parts with approved lubricant. Only bad thing i think about this gun is the trigger is kind of cheap. Thinking of upgrading to a Charlie The Tuna.

Seems some are great and some aren't
April 23, 2012
My first impression was that this was a great air rifle. The scope has great adjustments and is nice and crisp. The rifle was louder and not as accurate as others have stated, but I have a lot of experience with breaking barrels in and suppressors and thought it would go away after a few shooting sessions and cleanings. It didn't. It actually got as loud as my spring air rifle (Gamo) and scares everything away. Either the scope is junk or the barrel is because it will not hold a decent group from shot to shot, I am leaning towards it being a non-brand name scope. Adjusting the scope 4 MOA sometimes works and sometimes doesn't, I'll have to put one of my NightForce scopes on and make sure it's not the barrel. The power is great. I'm not blowing holes thru 3/8" plywood or 16ga sheetmetal like others are claiming (not even from point blank with various ammo types). Using RWS H Points puts down small birds fairly quick but there definitely aren't exit holes or exploding heads or anything of the sort (maybe a few feathers fall off). Overall, lots of hype from inexperienced shooters but it doesn't quite deliver for the true marksman/gun fanatic.
Power. 2 stage trigger.
Innacurate. Louder than advertised.

Remington NPSS .22 Digital Camo
February 20, 2012
The gun was great straight out of the box. Easy scope install and easy sighting in. We were shooting almost into the same hole but off to the right at first till I got it moved over to the center. Then it grouped three shots touching each other at 20yds. I thought that was pretty good for a pellet gun. The gun also has a nice scope and it's a great looking gun. I recomend it highly to anyone looking for an awesome pellet gun.
I like the look and feel of the gun, it has a good trigger and a nice scope.

As Advertised, Right Out of the Box
January 30, 2012
Set up was easy. My first shot at 20 yards was 12" right and 2" low. Within 20 shots I had a 3/8" three shot group. The gun is clean looking and the scope is excellent. After about 200 shots I started getting a slight grinding when cocking. I called Crossman customer service and they told me to use a silicon based oil and to put a few drops into the compression chamber. I did so and it cleared up right away. I am very satisfied with this gun and highly recommend it.
Ease of use. Quality scope
Could use sling swivels. They help when shooting offhand.

remington npss .22 cal.
December 24, 2011
recieved the rifle in perfect condition. i was disappointed the rifle was "made in the U.S.A. with some foreign components". everything on the gun looked fine.i bought some crosman pointed pellets {175 per box} and a 500 box of benjamin RNHP.both pellets shoot very well with all shots touching at 10 mtrs. from a rest.i have fired 2 {3 shot} groups at 35 yards .the worst one being 1 in..i chronographed a few shots with both pellets, both were around 750 fps. both were 14.3gr.
the ergonomics are good,the gun is very accurate and the muzzle report is quiet ,the scope is very good.
i will be replacing the trigger because when the trigger is adjusted to a somewhat crisp 4&1/2 lb.second stage, the trigger will not return forward if you don't complete the shot. the barrel pivot screw loosend and it had to be locktighted and the setscrew that locks it heated and reset.

Would I recommend this? Uh most definitely. This gun is amazing not only the look but the feel. It feels so much like a real gun being as solid as it is and sounding like it does. The SCOPE, oh my gosh the scope is amazing it's a beautiful piece of art. This gun is well worth every single penny. If your looking for a powerful gun that looks and feels great this one is for you. a+++++

this gun is amazing accurate and hits with a lot of stopping power. it looks and feels amazing. this is my fifth pellet gun and it is the first one i have had that doesnt feel like a pellet gun. it feels like a real .22. only complaint is its lack of iron sights, but the scope it comes with is so perfect for the gun youll never wana take it off

not enough power?!?!?!
February 20, 2011
whoever said this gun doesnt have enough power is insane. clearly u didnt hit the starling anywhere that would do damage because i got my self a turkey a few days ago. this gun is incredibly accurate with the rws superdome pellets. i can flip bottle caps upside down and shoot them off without even shaking the bottle at 20 yards. and its quieter than my RWS 34 but packs more of a punch

light, good trigger, powerful, accurate, fun--no problems other than slightly odd thumbhole, but that's so slight i shouldn't even mention it. took it camping so others could try it and it was very coveted! we had an 11-y-o hitting small disposable drinking cups at about 30 yrds, WHILE they were swaying about 2 feet each direction in the wind. there's no reason to not buy this rifle. as a side note, i didn't find a better price online.

Might be getting this gun studied it alot and did alot of research and think its the right gun for me but when i was looking the only thing that no reviews listed is what is the largest animal you can kill with it and if so at how far.
By Steve from Johnstown, OH on December 29, 2011

I can not answer your question from personal experience yet, but have read two reviews of this gun claiming they took a turkey with it (no yardage given); and another reviewer taking a rabbit at 60 yds.
By Ron Wilson from Utah on December 29, 2011

Just received the gun for Christmas and haven't had a chance to shoot it yet, so I don't have an answer to your question, but am very pleased with the quality of the gun, especially the scope if that is helpful.
By Jay from Holly springs, NC on December 31, 2011

Squirrels and rabbits out to 40 yds would be no problem provided you have solid rest and have sighted rifle in properly with a high quality pellet. Highly recommend this rifle.
By Eric from Akron, OH on January 12, 2012

The Remington Nitro Piston .22 is powerful, the largest animal I have shot is an adult Possum from about 30 feet. First head shoot immobilized it for a quick close up second shot to make sure it was dispatched. The animal damaged the lattice to get under my deck. The gun is very accurate, after I put about 30 pellets through it from a sitting position I was able to cover a 5 shot group with a dime from about 30 ft.

By Staff on May 4, 2012

Some rifles need breaking in put a high number of pellets through the gun 100-200 and that should help, also be sure to clean the barrel after all these shots and your rifle should really hone down.

By Dan from New York on July 7, 2012
Hey, I am very interested in this. First, what rails does it have? Weaver or dovetail? Also, I am new to the nitrogen thing. Do you have to put more gas into it like co2? I want something to keep by my door ready to go.
By Conor from Sunnyside, Washington on August 21, 2012

This just has dovetails. No, a nitro-piston is just like a regular springer, but quieter. It operates the same as a spring breakbarrel.

Is this a good small game hunting rifle? What all would it take down?
By Tim from California on February 21, 2012

I have only shot at a target at about 10 yds away to sight in the scope. The target was on a piece of 3/4 inch plywood and the pellets were breaking through the wood so I would assume the rifle would have no problem with racoons or possums.
By Mike from Texas on February 21, 2012

I believe the rifle is excellent for small game like pigeons, grackles, and squirrels. I have personally taken grackles and pigeons with the .22 version of the gun and found it to be accurate and deadly with respect to these species. The kills were instant and humane.
By Eric from Akron, OH on February 21, 2012

I took a crow with a single head shot from about 25 yards away with my Remington Nitrogen Piston in 22 Cal. Not only powerful, but accurate too!!
By John from Lynn Haven, Florida on February 22, 2012

The gun is excellent in all areas. Lots of power, extremely accurate. The 3 to 9 power Center Point scope is very high quality. The gun would be more than adequate for everything up to Racoons as long as you stay with the .22 version. I've fired over 700 shots with mine and am getting 1 inch groups at 20 yards. Very important to use the artillery hold when shooting to get consistant accuracy. Gripping the forearm rather than letting it sit in an open hand will cause you to shoot low. All in all a high quality for a fair price airgun.

Which one should I get the .177 or the .22

I want to use it for pest control, small game, and varmints (groundhogs)

Also any differences in noise, accuracy, and effective range between the two?
By Staff on May 16, 2012

.22 has more killing power.
.177 will give you more range.
thats the main difference.
I recommend the .22

By Erick from Miami, FL on May 3, 2012

the gun is quiet for real, i just to shoot the rifle quite often, i love it, i also have a benjamin nitro piston also, but this ones in my opinion is quieter being a .22
By Z. Peter from Bridgeton, MO on May 7, 2012

Larry, the NPSS in 22 sounds about as loud as a red ryder bb gun firing. Its more the spring mechanism than a report sound. There may be some tube insert to dampen that small sound even more but I haven't checked the forums. I don't find it bothersome and my neighbors haven't looked allerted despite over 100 shots.
