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. This .22 caliber version features shot velocities
of up to 1000 fps 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.

My 2 previous rifles were both Springers and even though one of them was advertised to be reduced sound they can not compare to the Remington NPSS .22. This rifle was easy to sight in and the break in period was less than 50 rounds. Quarter sized groups are common.
not even penetrating cardboard. I understand the nitrogen power pack can leak and that is probably the reason and that it is easy to replace. Where do I get one and instructions to replace it.
I find the sound reduction to be much better than my spring action but not at the given 70% claim. The trigger pull is too long for my liking even after I adjusted it; the scope came with the gun and adequate for the combo price I guess, I'm used to high end scope on my powder riffles.
The gun stock is composite and makes the gun feel a little on the cheap side; I prefer wood but I imagine that it would have added to the already heavy weight of the gun. The overall length of the gun is a negative even for a man of my seize; something to consider. Unfortunately, I should have been able to read independent reviews on this model but none were available, therefore, since I can't come back six months from now and give it a fair evaluation, I have to rate this riffle at a first impression level. I'll recommend this riffle with reservations.
I spent some time at the range with my NPSS shooting Crosman Premier hollow points. My chronograph averaged out at 678 fps. Very impressive for a .22 caliber lead pellet, I think, and certainly fast enough to prove deadly on the wascally wabbits that plague my perennials!
The scope is significantly above and beyond what I would expect in a sub-three hundred dollar package. The rifle is easy to cock and the Crosman Premier pellets fit quite snugly into the barrel. Remington has also supplied a really nice, adjustable trigger with this rifle!
My example of the NPSS is surprisingly accurate, with consistent 25 yard groups, from a rest, inside of one inch. Offhand, utilizing the artillery hold, one can repeatedly decimate a common pop can at thirty yards, leaving little doubt that the rabbits in my yard are soon to be facing a significant population decline.
I compared this rifle side-by-side with a bolt action .22 caliber rim-fire shooting CB Long ammo (extremely quiet, sub-sonic rounds) and the NPSS was by far the quietest, had the fastest muzzle velocity and printed the tightest groups.
For those residing in an urban setting, my opinion is that, if fired from inside of a structure, the sound of the pellet impacting the target outside is about all that a nosy neighbor is likely to hear.
This rifle and scope package is, IMO, a terrific value at $299, shipped. Get it before the price goes up!

I am sorry to hear that your animal was killed. I hope you have contacted law enforcement and they are able to find the person responsible.
However, your accusations towards us are extremely ignorant and insulting. Take a second to think about how ridiculous you sound.
