The XL features a handsome, checkered, hardwood stock. Velocity up to 900 feet per second with alloy pellets and 725 FPS with standard lead pellets. Independent research by Intertek found that Nitro Piston technology reduces noise by 70% during the shot cycle compared with traditional steel spring break-barrels!

Benjamin Trail NP XL 725 Air Rifle
  • With Nitro Piston Technology
  • 70% Less Noise then the competitor’s “quiet” break barrel
  • Gas Piston Technology uses Nitrogen as the power source, instead of a steel Spring
  • Dramatically reduces felt recoil by eliminating the "double hit" and "spring torque" of a steel spring
  • Quicker lock time leads to increased accuracy
  • Hardwood Ambidextrous Stock w/Thumbhole Grip
  • Integral Rail Mounting System – make mounting optics quick and easy
  • Includes: CenterPoint 3-9x40mm with adjustable objective and Mil-Dot reticle, Swivel & Stud for Sling

Benefits of the Nitro Piston vs. Spring Piston:
  • 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

Awesome rifle!
June 1, 2019
Awesome rifle, definitely want to be aware of loosening screws on the scope mount but it cannot be avoided because of the kick this thing has, more than any.22 I've ever shot. Had it hitting bullseyes in no time with lead pellets. The trigger does leave a lot to be desired, but all in all I am very satisfied.
ProsQuiet operation and plenty of punch.
ConsTrigger seems to go on forever.
Best UsesVermin and small game.

I have the 25 calaber wow what a powerful Rifle I bought it about a year or so and it's breaking in really well.
But you need to be strong to hold it at first I used a tripod
But now I can shoot it standing up and cocking is getting easy
I also have one in 22 cal.and the in another league all together. but both great.but the 25 a monster.
And I really like it.
ConsA little heavey but i inderstand due to the power it puts out

For the price you're not gonna find a better deal than this. I got the .25 caliber and am very happy with it. It has good power, it's accurate, and also comes with a decent scope. Some people have commented that they don't like the trigger but I think that is just fine (maybe I just got a good one). It's also not that loud, so I can shoot it in my backyard no problem.
ProsPrice, power, accurate, not that loud
ConsIt's kinda long, sling not included
Best UsesTarget shooting, pest control

I'm 53, & remember when I was 12, the day before my 1st day of deer season. I got out of bed all night long just to go stare at my brand new 243. I did the same with this shooter, & it's an air rifle. I've only shot a few pellets thru it, but it's shooting a tighter pattern than all my others. Bought lower scope mounts & a 40mm scope, looks & feels big game. I got the .25 cal. & plan to use it next spring gobbler season, & for groundhogs.
ProsVery fine looking, & feel, air rifle.
ConsDidn't come with a sling, but we took care of that.

Overall great gun, shoots well with Charlie da tuna trigger. You have to keep an eye on all the screws, they do work loose even with loctite. This gun has decent recoil to be an airgun but I like it! Scope is ok for the price range of this package.
ProsWell made, very smooth cocking, shoots pretty good for a gun under 300 dollars , pretty quiet
ConsHEAVY! This thing weighs about as much as my ar topped with an atn nightscope. Screws back out, factory trigger stinks

Extreme Accuracy!
March 1, 2018
I LOVE THIS GUN!!!! It is the most accurate rifle consistently that I have now and I own 27 of them! I am consistently stacking pellets on top of each other at 32 yards! What a great powerful gun, look no further, this is the one!
ProsBeautiful stock, solid feel and consistent accuracy!

This is a True Hunting Air Rifle!
If you want extreme accuracy just like in 2000 dolars pcp's and enough power to kill fox size game under 30 meters, then folow my steps like I did with my Benjamin Trail NP XL 725 .25 cal!

1. When you get the Benji, first fire up 50 shots in order to break-in piston and other internal parts!
2. Disasamble the whole rifle, barell, piston, chamber tube, stock and all others and clean everything with high quality lube/oil. I used Ballistol!
3. You would need few replacement parts: Walther Talon Piston Seal (odd 1.142), Steel or Brass Barell Washers, GRT-III Trigger, Hatsan 125 Magnum Breech Seal and Crosman RmCoil for lube!
4. Sand for glass finish whole Chamber Tube for Smoother Cocking and Increasing Velocity!
5. Install new Walther Talon Piston Seal!
6. Install new Hatsan 125 Breech Seal!
7. Install Steel or Brass Washers for preventing side to side play of your barell!
8. Install GRT-III Trigger!
9. Get a decent Scope and Mounts, Scope that can deal with Double Recoil. I have UTG Leapers 6-24x50 with Max Strenght Mounts!
10. Lube all parts with RmCoil and Assamble everything back.
11. Loctite all Screws!
12. Fire few shots to get rid of all excess oil!
13. Get Predator Polymag for max power!
14. Enjoj your best rifle!!!

Hope this helps!!!

May 14, 2015
It doesnt shoot quite as fast as advertized unless u put oil in the piston chamber before firing but it is still close. Pba ammo averages 820fps when broken-in,instead of 900fps. Jsb match diabolo 25.39 grain domed averages 610fps after broken-in. After allowing a few drops of oil sit in piston chamer overnight,the gun shot pba 1120+fps and jsb ex diabolo 25.39grn 750+fps,but only for a couple shots before settling down to the averages. Gun is not heavy to me,its nice. Cocking effort isnt bad for me,but i can do pull-ups. If held with a tight grip with both hands,forward hand more toward front of stock,strong pistol grip,n tight against shoulder,it groups very nicely. ARTILLARY HOLD DOESNT WORK WITH THIS WEAPON! IT WILL ROCK TOO MUCH. Im liking it. Ordering more ammo to try n perfect my shooting with this gun­Ÿ˜Š. This is a replacement for hatsan underlever torpedo 150th. 25 cal underlever. The hatsan kept losing velocity down to 300fps n wouldnt climb up again. Two hatsans disappointed me. This gun is making me happy after a few days of shooting. Its broken-in n scope is now mounted.
ProsStrong. Light,for me. Bigger cal. Good wood stock. Good scope. Good smooth cocking. Easy loading. Good trigger,screwed it tighter... I like the harder quicker trigger pull. With good tight fitting pellets fps variation stays low (Im trying different brands to see which works best for my gun).
ConsCant use artillery hold but thats fine. A strong tight grip works great!😊. Not smooth like a pcp but i didnt wanna pay that price.

Strays and fliers
May 6, 2015
I am having the most difficult time taming this thing. Yes its a bigger bore .25 Cal, but you would think it would group better. After many attempts I must report that it isn't as well made as most .25 Cals. I am still working with the best pellet for the .25 Trail version, not one to give up, but it just seems you cant get a much better grouping than 5 inches at 10 yards. Sad I know... this being said I have yet to tear it down completely and look for the loose bolt or whatever might be causing such fliers. I do own several of the Trail Nitro Pistons and love them all, except this one.
ProsHitting Power

Great rifle until it broke.
June 23, 2014
I have had this rifle for four days and have shot approx. 100 pellets through it. Today when shooting at the rifle range the picatinny rail, that was supposed to be welded to the receiver, fell off the rifle with the scope and the scope hit the concrete pad I was standing on. I called Airgun Depot about this and they said it would take approx. two to three weeks to get another one because I had to return this one and when they get it they will then process the return and then send out another. I have had companies advise in similar situations, that they were going to send out a replacement immediately and for me to return the broken one; but obviously Airgun Depot does not trust their customers enough to do that. So, I will be waiting two to three weeks to get the Benjamin Trail NP XL 725 that I have already paid $300.00 for and can't use because Arigun Depot sold me a defective rifle. That is not what I call customer satisfaction oriented. I doubt I will ever buy from Airgun Depot again.
ProsGreat shooting rifle. Hits like a mule.
ConsThe picatinney rail falls off the rifle when shooting. Must be a lousy welding job by Benjamin. I expected better from Benjamin.

May 22, 2014
Just purchased this rifle, first impression was wow its long.. And its heavy.. Compares to my 12 gauge over and under in weight.. That doesn't bother me at all, I don't really like the wood stock.. Not sure if its even real wood.. Not a lot of grain to it. And as everyone has stated, the trigger is tough very tough, like a 1/2" first stage.. I like the scope personally, it has mil. Lines to help with longer shots, and is very clear.
Still trying different pellets and just throwing lead through it right now, I'd say holding 1 1/2" groups at 25 yards. At 75- 80 yards I hit a 5 gal. Bucket in center by holding about 3" high over top of bucket..(25 grain pellet)
I imagine it will get better with break in.. And yea.. It hits HARD.. after seeing a .25 cal pellet, you'll laugh at a .177.
ProsNice scope.. Hits hard and is accurate..
ConsWood grain stock is ugly, and trigger is long and choppy..

Powerful Hard Hitting rifle
April 29, 2014
Great gun very accurate powerful hard hitting rifle. I brought this rifle for pest control. I cleaned the barrel and mounted the scope. I made just a few adjustments, killed three squirrels in under half an hour at 30 yds. Using H&N Barracuda .25 Cal 31.02 grains, round nose ammo. I can see this gun getting better over time the trigger works fine to me no problems. The nitro piston is great very quiet I'm very pleased with this gun Money well spent. I would not recommend this gun for kids, adults only.

this is a great gun if you don't mind tightening some screws every 20-30 shots. it hits hard and is pretty accurate after a few hundred rounds. the scope it comes with was way to much for an airgun. the scope does make a great Christmas present if you have any friends with a 30-06, I got a red dot sight for an AR-15 from wally world that works just fine. although I've yet to shoot any critters with it......yet. over all his gun is worth it if you mind mind the maintenance.
Prosgreat gun. lots of power. very accurate after a about 200 rounds.
Consits heavy. doesn't come with a sling. kicks so hard that it shakes the screws loose on the front end of the gun

Overall Pleased
December 5, 2013
I like the performance of the .25 Benjamin Trail NP XL; however, I was a bit disappointed in the rifle stock. For most people this stock should be perfectly acceptable. The first thing I did with the rifle though is strip the finish off since it was a bit thin. I found the stock to have some wood filler and no wood grain worth complimenting. I had to opaque the stock when what I prefer to do is compliment the wood grain with a beautiful stain finish. What I was hoping was going to be a beautiful prize rifle turned out to simply be a hard hitting pellet rifle that I can get rough with.
ProsThe rifle shoots hard and is respectably accurate. A great gun for small and medium game.
Conswood stock is of a low grade for a rifle of this expense

this is a wonderful Air- Rifle,at first I thought it would be to slow not shoot fast enough, but hey everything about it is great !!!!!!! I love it too pieces :-) Now listen a gun is no better than its accuracy so believe me I've done my home work on finding the right pellet I tried 8 different types, yes :-} so anyway for this brand of air rifle the Benjamin trail npxl wooded stock 725. please use the H&N FIELD & TARGET 24.38 grain or the hi dollar PREDATOR POLY MAGS. 26grain. and this gun plenty of power, you will love, accuracy that is consistent 10yds 1\4 inch groups 15yds 1\2 inch groups 20yds 3\4 to 1 inch groups, okay folks I could write all day but good enough for now, HAPPY-SHOOTING........

Great Gun
June 19, 2012
This is a great gun if you do two things: 1. get a new trigger for it such as the GRT-3 from CharlieDaTuna at or through Air Guns of Arizona and 2. use the right pellets. Originally I tried Gammo Rockets and Beeman Siler Bears. At 30 yards I could not hold a decent grouping of less that 6 inches in diameter, which is not acceptable. I then tried Predator Polymags. They are the same 26 gr. as the Beemans but were shooting 10 inches higher at 30 yards. That tells me that they are maintaining their velocity much better and shooting straighter. My grouping came down to about the size of a silver dollar at 30 yards shooting off of a bipod. I am pretty happy with that. The gun is heavy but it is quiet. The wood stock is nice but could use a better finish on it. The scope is decent for a pettet gun and with the weaver mounts does not move. The included sling in a nice touch. Because the gun is heavy you might consider using a bipod for target practice.
Proswood stock quite with no spring recoil decent scope with weaver mounts sling power

Quite Power
January 4, 2012
Sighting in this rifle was no hassle. less than 10 shots and zeroed in. With less than 200 shots I am getting single hole 3 shot groups at 10 yards. Rifle is VERY hold sensitive. It likes a stronger hold than my G1 extreme .177. Shooting this rifle at paper is anti-climatic. the piston is super smooth and it is VERY quite. But once I shot at something that I could gauge the power with that all changed. I am getting full penetration through over 18" of modeling clay with a cavity the full length. I tried a 12" block at first and the pellet blew through that and a pine 1" by I had as a back stop. I have no worries about hunting with this beast. Super happy with my purchase
Prospower quite accurate Springer character
ConsSpringer character Very hold sensitive

this gun is well fitted and shoots well- but not the first shot when you take it outdoors from the indoors you need to fire several rounds just to get the scope to hit where you sighted it in =poi after that it seems to do fairly good but if given the choice between it and a pcp made by career-the original 707 in .25 cal sadly the career wins hands down-acuracy -range and no hold over like was mentioned in the other review--sadly no one seems to import the shinsung rifles anymore they are still being made why arent anybody still importing them !!!

with Benjamin Premier Destroyers, i pulled off 1 inch groups at 30 yards

with benajmin premier Domed, i pulled of 1 inch groups at 40 yds

those were the best two pellets i had, luckily they had the same POI

ive killed squirrels at 50 yards, doves at 90 yards, and a racoon at 20 yards, trust me, the long shots took some hold over

this is great for small game up to 40yds, after that gravity makes the pellets drop a lot, the .22 is good up to 70 yds

the scope is very good and clear

the power is outstanding, this doesnt get the 30fpe, but it gets arounf 25fpe, which is still very powerful

crhonoed at 902fps average with 14.3 gr pellets(gamo pba raptor0

758 fps average with 19.5gr beeman field target specials

this gun has a weaver mount instead of a dovetail, so no scope creep

this gun would give the RWS model 350 a run for its money

by the XL for all your small game needs

By Staff on January 9, 2012

If you are having trouble with your rifle I would recommend speaking with our returns department about the issue. You can reach them by emailing them at [email protected] or by filling out an RMA form under the returns tab of our website.

Is this gun accurate and does it kick, does it wreck scopes. How is the nitro piston serviced and at what cost. What is the warranty What is the velocity. Thanks Dwight
By Carter from Washington on February 15, 2012

This gun is hard to shoot accurately because of the recoil, it kinda is a scope killer, but not often. Nitro will last you at least 4 years before you'll have to have it serviced. Real world velocity with 24gr pellets is like 600fps.

By john from pomona california on November 14, 2011

By nick from ny on December 19, 2011
what are the advantages and disadvantages of the 25 cal. Thanks
By Mack from West Virginia on January 7, 2012

Overall the rifle is decent for the money.I had a Crow Magnum.25 Cal. Rifle I got from Beemans, back in the mid 80's when they first came out, this rifle reminds me of that rifle, just not quite the same quality, and not nearly as expensive. Not real hard to cock and a very positive lock up. First I tried the Benjamin Domed Pellets not very accurate with this rifle. Tried several different pellets until I finally found one that would shoot 3/8 -1/2 inch groups at twenty yards. Was the H& N Sport Field Target Trophy 19.91 grain.Some groups with this pellet were even smaller. They shoot the very best and clock on the Chrony at 630-660 FPS. Got 860-900 FPS with the Raptor Platinum Power Pellets but accuracy was poor.You must shoot these powerful with a light hold, if you try to grip them like you are shooting do not expect superior or even satisfactory accuracy. My overall opinion a fairly decent squiurrel rifle with H&N Sport Field Trophy at targets up to 30 yards.The next best accurate pellet was the H& N Ram Point. Another thing the factory trigger is awful, I got a trigger from Charlie Da Tuna. Made a world of difference.
By Conor from Sunnyside, WA on February 8, 2012

Advantages of the .25 cal are that there is more knockdown power and more FPE, the disadvantage is that the pellet will be traveling a lot slower and the prey might hear the gun and move before the pellet hits it.
By Carter from Washington on February 15, 2012

Advantages: Bigger holes through your target, more knockdown power.....Disadvantages: Heavy, pellets aren't cheap, and the pellet will be going pretty slow.

By Austin from Vidor,texas on July 14, 2012
Is it quiet enough to shoot in a suburban area?

By Conor from Sunnyside, Washington on August 21, 2012

Probably not, I have this gun in .22 cal, and it is fairly loud when the pellet hits the target, and .25 cal will just be even louder.

By butch hooverson from viroqua wi on January 28, 2012
would this gun kill racoons in a high tree or live beavers
By Conor from Sunnyside, WA on January 31, 2012

Yes, as long as you make the shot count. Head shots will kill them.
By Carter from Washington on February 15, 2012
