If you shoot a lightweight pellet so its velocity exceeds the speed of sound- it could result in your pellet breaking the sound barrier and the gun being louder than expected! The speed of sound depends on humidity- temperature and altitude. Generally speaking- it's between 1-060 fps and 1-115 fps.

Here are the benefits of a gas-piston over a spring-piston air rifle:
  • Smoother cocking
  • Smoother shooting
  • No spring torque
  • No spring fatigue- even if you leave it cocked for hours
  • Functions perfectly in cold weather
  • Lasts longer than a metal spring

The scope went after about 50 shots. Bought a nice new scope and about 150 more rounds through it the cocking mechanism bent and was unusable. The accuracy might be good but I couldn't tell because the trigger pull is pretty bad. Maybe I just got a bad one.

Looks aggressive Quiet for a springer

Trigger Scope durability Gun broke before break in period was over(the metal they use in the cocking mechanism is not strong enough)

I purchased this gun from a local retailer box store. This gun has a really nice synthetic stock! I have seen many centerfire rifles that don't have as nice of a synthetic stock. The scope it comes with a pretty decent and the fit and finish was really nice on mine. The main drawback is the trigger as so many have said. The pull is pretty hard, scratchy (for lack of a better word) and LONG! The gun is pretty accurate however after a break in period of about 150 pellets or so for mine. Overall this is a nice pellet gun and is my first introduction to break barrels. I liked is to much, I bought the trail np 2.

Solid construction, nice scope.

crappy trigger

By BrandonDecember 25, 2014

I found the Benjamin Trail NP to be a well built heavy duty rifle. I haven't been into air rifles but wanted something that was quiet and powerful to deal with tree rats and chippy. I've only had the rifle a few days but immediately went to the trigger fix with the 5x9x3MM RC bearing fix that I found on utube. The original trigger is mushy, long...take two breaths while trying to get this thing to go off....has to be 1/2" or more of travel all the way to the back of the trigger housing...just bad. The modification with the bearing made it a dream to shoot. It's much shorter on the travel and seems to be about 3lb trigger now....comparible to my .22 rifle. The scope is ok..could be better may get a Hawke scope at some point. Cocking the gun isn't bad...I have put about 100 shots through it and it's starting to settle down with break in but it does take patience...It's a great gun and with the trigger fix it's a winner for under 200.00 but why they put all this into it and have a junk trigger is beyond me. The fix is pretty simple...i'd say the hardest part is getting the C/E clip off the pin holding the trigger it's pretty straight forward.

Well build, solid, accurate (once broken in) powerful and quiet.

Trigger is junk but easily fixed.

the addition of a picattiny style mount that is part of the receiver is a huge gain over seperate mounts. the dovetail on older spring guns are terrible. they cant hold the scope on one spot due to the recoil of the spring. with the addition of this picattiny mount and good rings accuracy is well within reach. the gun has a nice feel and shoots incredilbly quiet. a+++ to agd for a good price, great shipping and nice product. great first impression for a new customer, will return for future air gun needs.

everything in the box to shoot minus the ammo. attach scope, zero, then rodents beware,

By Michael DUSAJanuary 3, 2014

This is my second trail NP rifle. I purchased a .22 cal camo version of this gun last year and absolutely love it. I would have bought the camo gun from AGD but the only way to get it was thru walmart special order. I bought the .177 version from AGD and love it. this is a very accurate gun combo for the money not to mention one cool looking gun. easy to break the barrel for loading and you can reload it without scaring off the other tree rats that are waiting for their lead headache. amazingly quiet gun to reload. also very quiet to fire especially with heavier pellets. not as quiet as the .22 version which only makes a thump sound when it goes off. the scope once you understand how to make the parallax adjustment work for you is adequate. there are better scopes out their but we are talking about a 200 dollar combo rifle. the rifle is on the heavy side but it is balanced pretty well. the included sling is a must if you plan on being in the woods for an extended time. the trigger pull is long and gritty leaving you waiting for it to go off, just like 90% of the other air rifles I have fired. you get used to the trigger after a while. you can adjust the trigger which makes it a lot better. the only problem I have when heading out for a tree rat outing is choosing which one to take. the .177 for the speed or the .22 for the knockdown. do yourself a favor and buy one of each caliber

power, quiet, accurate, cool looking gun

like all air guns trigger pull is long and gritty

By DavidJuly 6, 2013

Very well built and comes with a decent scope. Likes the heavy pellets best. Did the "washer" trigger job on it. Added a sling to it because it's pretty heavy to lug around. Pretty accurate. 2 inch groups of 10 pellets at 20 yards. I am not a good shooter, so that is pretty good for me. Very quiet compared to my old "springer". All the tree rats in my yard are nervous.

Looks cool, solid build, accurate. Quiet.


By RonnieJune 12, 2013

Each different type of ammo will find a different place on a target which is very annoying. I really can't tell if it's my scope or the rifle. Other than that I find this rifle very exciting. You will definitely break the sound barrier and create that awesome sound rarely heard from an air rifle using a high velocity ammo.

By DanielUSAJune 5, 2013

Out of the box the gun cannot shoot within the same area twice. After about 250 pellets and about 6 sheets of paper i finally zeroed the scope... approximately. I have no doubts in the gun's accuracy, however, either the scope, the trigger, or even me, are making these shots wild. Will try heavier pellets, and new trigger. Don't even try to shoot this gun without a new trigger, you will lose your mind.

Sturdy Nice Scope Smooth Operation Accurate? Nice finish Quiet

Heavy TERRIBLE trigger, makes my 1377 seem like heaven. Came with a little nick on the shroud.

By NicholasUSAApril 19, 2013

This is a nice rifle, powerful and well built . I have not set the scope yet but at. 20 yards it seems right on center. Air gun depot gives you fun rifle for a very fair price. Thanks gun depot.

Well built , powerful, scope works well. Nice sling.

wondering if you must use brand specific pellets with this rifle or can you use gamo or rws brands as well

asked Erin

Any brand will be fine. I have done many hours of testing over 25 different pellet brands and weights and designs. The two best for accuracy for me at 30 yards were "Kodiak" 10.65 grains tapered dome, and "Predator Polymag" 8 grain hunting pellets. Rabbits I use the Kodiak. Squirrels and birds the Predator Polymag. The Kodiaks being heavier will goup 1 to 1.5 inches lower than the lighter Polymags. Hope this helps save you time and expense. Love my rifle. P.S. If you get The "Charlie Da Tuna" GRT-III trigger upgrade (google it) your accuracy will be awesome. The stock trigger pull on this (and most any airgun) is too stiff for good shot placement.


I'm an rws fan and use a lot of them as well as crosman, benjamin, beeman, and jsb exacts. I do not have any info on the gamo as I do not use them.

Mike from USA

You can use any .117 cal pellet, any brand is fine.

spencer from USA

In my experience I have found that better quality pellets will give you much better accuracy. Any brand name pellet will work but I have tried Crosman Premier Hollow Points and Stoeger X-Field and received the best accuracy with the Stoeger pellets.

Steve from USA

What is the most accurate pellet for this gun?

asked Jake

So far, I have gotten the best accuracy with Stoeger X-Field which are also available from AirgunDepot.

Steve from USA

Where can you get this upgraded trigger, and how much? How hard to install?

asked Julie

Haven't had a chance to install mine yet but here's a good write up on how its done to see how difficult it is. It's $30 plus shipping on the same website.

spencer from USA

Hi, The GRT-III trigger blade comes from "CharliedaTuna" whose web site is - It's best to look at the web site for ordering instructions and also to determine which trigger to order. Installation of the trigger is simple, just be sure to follow all the instructions which come with it. I highly recommend the trigger as the stock trigger on the Trail NP is one of the worst I have ever felt on anything. Cost is in the $30.00 range but be sure to look at the ordering directions on the web site. This - after the trigger change - is a very nice gun, lots of power, accurate and relatively quiet after some break in. Steve Alexander

Scott from USA

does this come with a sling. is the scope easy to adjust?

asked jeff borgese

I asked AGD the same question after I received my all-weather Trail….which did not have a sling included. My hardwood stock Trail, which I bought a year ago, did have a sling included. AGD said the all-weather DID NOT come with a sling. Go figure.


no it does not come with a sling but i found a nice one that fits it at gander mountain for 10 bucks . for the money you cant bet the scope


when I purchased my two trail np rifles they both came with slings. having a sling on these rifles is a must if you plan on hunting with them because these guns are a bit on the heavy side, especially if you have a laser/flashlight setup like I have on both of mine. the included sling was well made and once adjusted properly makes the gun easier to carry for extended times. the scope is easy to adjust for both windage and elevation and can be done at any time due to the scope having open turret caps to take off and possibly lose. the adjustable objective is sweet, being able to range find with the scope helps to determine if you need to compensate for pellet drop not to mention bringing the target back into focus when you change the magnification level. the scope will let you look a lot further than the effective kill range of either the .22 or the.177 caliber rifles.

Michael D from USA

The rifle does come with a sling. The scope adjust just as it should have - I set up a target and used several shots to get the rifle zeroed, but it did so reliably and well. I have been pleased with the rifle - it's a good value and fun to shoot.

Robert from USA

Will .22 cal pellets work on this and if so which ones should I choose?

asked Sionan

Sionan, Unfortunately, this particular gun uses only .177 caliber pellets. A .22 caliber pellet would be too big to fit in this gun. Make sure you only order the .177 caliber pellet. Any of them will work. hopefully that answers your question. Sincerely, Airgun Depot Customer Care Team

Scott from USA

Is it really as quiet as they say?

asked david

Agreed, it's much quieter than a typical break barrel. Both the power plant and the muzzle blast are quieter. The super light alloy pellets will make a super sonic crack which is very loud, but that's no fault of the gun. Stick to lead pellets and you will be fine.


YES! They say 70% quieter than a springer. I would have to agree. My Winchester 800 is much louder.


What power is the scope?

asked DJ

It is a CenterPoint Optics 3-9x40AO scope with mil-dot reticle.

Conor from USA

Does anyone know what .177 pellet weight will drop this into sub-sonic territory?

asked Phil Bertnut

With this gun basically anything 7.0 gr or heavier should stay sub-sonic, but it will perform better with pellets in the 8.0 to 8.8gr range. Anything above 9gr or so and you will start to lose power. Your accuracy should improve, but for example the common 10.5gr weight will cost you 5-15% in power at the muzzle. The JSB 8.4gr are excellent and probably the best buy in quality pellets. Still you should try the 10.5gr, either Barracuda or Crosman to see if you like them, the gain in accuracy and long range effectiveness could very well be worth the power loss.


8-10 grain pellets will put this in the 1000-900 range for FPS.

Conor from USA

Is this rifle superior to the spring action model?

asked john from USA

NP is a lot more precise than spring action and is MUCH more durable. Nitro pistons are also a lot quieter.

Scott from USA

The description sayes it's quiet, but how quiet? I live in an urban area and I want something to shoot squirrels and the like with. I had a Benjamin 397 which I thought was quiet, how does this rifle compare?

asked Mike

After the first 100 shots, it gets pretty quiet, as quiet as 1200 fps can possibly get. I live in a neighborhood and shoot it everyday, no problem. I recommend this!!


I shot it for the first time using a light ( 5.5Gr.) nonlead wad cutter pellet. It was as loud as a .22 rifle. I'm told that the sound will decrease after the breakin (100 rounds) period.


Does anyone have any power specs for it? Ftlbs, FPS and pellet weight for various pellets... Basically I'd like to know if it's the same power plant as the Benjamin Titan or is it better somehow?

asked ROBERT from USA

It varies from gun to gun so you could get from 13.5 to 18ftlbs out of the box, but most hover around 16. As for FPS you can figure that with your pellet weight. Just note that pellets above 8.4gr are usually lower in power, for example a 10.5gr are usually 1 to 2ftlbs less. The 8.4 is about the ideal weight for this gun, so I highly recommend the JSB or RWS pellets. Any of these guns can be given a mild tune which is more of a going over to fix flaws an this will net you about 18.5ftlbs regardless of what the gun did originally. The exception is if the nitro has leaked which is fairly common. Internally this gun is identical to the Titan, but the Titan has a longer barrel (1.25") so in .177 it'll give you a little bit more power, in .22 it shouldn't make any difference. To me it's worth the slight power loss to get the quieter suppressed Trail barrel. The Trail is over a pound heavier thanks to the stock. The solution imo is buy the Titan and add the suppressor which is exactly what I did. Also, when tuning your gun you not only get more power and accuracy, but your scope will last longer which is a problem with the more powerful springers.


How many pounds effort does it take to cock this rifle ?

asked dick

33 lbs

Steve from USA



The trigger is the same as all the other Crosman guns, if that's what you were asking. There are variations so you could get one that isn't that bad, but most are all the same and the #1 complaint on these guns. It can be easily fixed in a variety of ways, from simply replacing the adj screw with a longer one, installing a spacer on the trigger, installing a GRT trigger, or doing a nice trigger job. I prefer the latter which results in the best trigger, but before anyone dumps the big bucks on a an aftermarket unit I suggest you try a longer screw first; 3mm x 12mm.


It is really accurate in the hands of a good shooter, and the scope is great.

Carter from USA

The rifle is really accurate once it is broke in, you can put in a GRTIII trigger in and it comes with a 3-9x40 scope.


So far I have shot about 100 rounds through the gun. I would say that the gun is fairly accurate. I am having more trouble with the scope than the rifle. As an avid shooter, I dont see the need in the complications that the scope presents for the short range shots being taken with this rifle. Once I got the scope set. I can make fairly tight groupings at 25 yards. The trigger pull is a little long but is easy to get used to.
