As long as they were making improvements, Crosman decided to make a better and more effective integral sound suppression system that really is quiet. You'll notice an immediate difference between the report from your Nitro Piston 2 air rifle and the older Nitro Piston guns or other brands. So, let's add up what you'll get in this great package: Easy cocking, fantastic trigger and less noise. And, it's assembled in Crosman's plant in Bloomfield, New York.
While that's almost everything you could ever want, there's one more thing ?and it's really important: Accuracy. When we tested a Nitro Piston 2 at an industry show, we hit everything we aimed at. Isn't that what you want to do? We thought so! The Benjamin Trail NP2 dressed in a Realtree Xtra camo stock isn't a dream?it's a dream come true. It's here for you to enjoy, to hit everything you're aiming at, and not strain with each cock and each pull of the trigger. They've put the fun back in airgunning!

Simple and accurate
December 14, 2016
This is a great rifle. The scope is good enough, but not great. When you go above about 5x you can't get the target and reticle lines both in focus, at least with my eyes. I do use/need #250 reading glasses. When set on 4 power, the scope provides perfect images. The ballistic drop reticle works great as well. The rifle is very accurate. I can easily shoot 1 inch groups at 30 yards. I've been using Crosman Premier round nose pellets. I can hit a fence post at over 150 yards about 7 of ten shots. A coffee can on that fence post gets hit about 1/3 of the time. Golf ball size targets at 50 yards are about 8 of 10. There are the occasional "flyers", but they can be predicted by a different feel when inserting the pellet in the bore. Usually the tight ones go astray. The fact all you need to do is cock, load and shoot is an asset when there are no compressed air stations available. It will serve my needs well for years to come.
Pros:Reasonable price. Nice camo. Scope holds zero. Easy to cock. Very quiet. Accurate.
Cons:The tapered piece between the receiver and barrel shroud is plastic. It's the only thing that degrades the quality and appearance. I would change it if I were the manufacturer. It's possible to hold the barrel in a way that unscrews the barrel shroud when you cock the rifle. Once you know that, you simply hold the barrel so is stays tight.
