Product Description

Product Description

The Trail NP Hardwood features a handsome, checkered, hardwood stock. The imposing 23 ft-lbs of muzzle energy provides 16% more downrange energy than .177 cal., and features velocities of up to 950 fps*. Benjamin Nitro Piston powered break barrels produce 70% less noise than spring powered airguns, and with smooth cocking effort, less recoil and less noise, a successful day of hunting is within reach. One simple cocking motion and your follow-up shots are fast, quiet and easy. Each Benjamin Trail NP break barrel comes with a 3-6x40mm CenterPoint precision scope, featuring an adjustable objective and range estimating reticle. The Trail NP air rifles feature a bull barrel, Picatinny mounting rail system, installed sling mounts and a ventilated rubber recoil pad.


The Trail NP All Weather air rifle, from Crosman's Benjamin brand of guns, features a durable, all weather wood stock and rugged break barrel design. The 0.22 caliber weapon provides 16% more downrange power than common 0.177 calibers, and an impressive 23-foot-pounds of muzzle energy fires at velocity speeds of up to 950-feet-per-second (FPS).

Note:It is common-practice to shim a scope for sighting-in.
Break-barrel pellet rifles such as this one, require a different holding practice vs a traditional pneumatic pellet rifle.  The gun should be held using the “Artillery Hold,” which is basically just letting the fore arm of the rifle rest on an open palm vs holding the gun tightly".


  • Nitro piston power source
  • 0.22 caliber
  • Firing velocity up to 950 FPS
  • Eight-pound weight
  • 43-inch length
  • Bull barrel

Here is my initial review of the Benjamin trail NP .22 rifle with hardwood stock. I went for the standard and not the XL as I wanted a quieter gun and figured accuracy would be better if I stayed sub-sonic. I am in Canada so could not buy from pyrimade air or amazon so I bought from lebaron. Out of the box the gun is beautiful. Finishing problems reported by others are mostly absent. Small scratch marks on stock near one of the front screws, otherwise finish is fantastic.

Weight of the gun is 2932g, weight of 3-9x centerpoint scope (not illuminated version) is 562g, weight of sling is 57g = total 3551g or 7.8 lbs. I am 6'4" so length of stock feels a little short by 1-2" but not intolerable.

The only pellets I have so far are the Crosman Premier HP at 14.3gr. Shots chronographed in my basement about 5' from muzzle on a Beta Chrony. I did not scope the rifle for the first 100 shots as I new recoil would be more vigorous. 1st shot ever was LOUD - 1016 fps! Shots 2-12 highest velocity 772fps lowest 749fps average 763fps extreme deviation 22.9fps average deviation 4.44fps. Shots 50-60 highest velocity 769 fps lowest 749 fps average 758 fps extreme deviation 19.9 fps average deviation 5 fps. Shots 100-110 highest velocity 763 fps lowest 731 fps average 31 fps extreme deviation 31.4 fps average deviation 6.75 fps. Shots 250-260 highest velocity 745 fps lowest 735 fps average 735 fps extreme deviation 14.3 fps average deviation 3.775 fps. By 100 rounds the noise was much more tolerable - I would still wear ear protection indoors but I would characterize the noise as more like a quiet nailgun.

After 100 rounds I mounted the scope. At 10 yards gun was shooting 3" below aiming point at maximum setting for the scope.

Wasn't quite sure of what to expect from this or any other pellet gun for that matter in this price range....Grew up using a Crossman 766 for varmit control when I was younger.

Recently, a gang of squirrels in the "wood hood" starting making trouble with the local woodland creatures and ravaging my bird feeders in the process.

Now, there's a new sheriff in town.

Right out of the box, the .22 cal. Nitro Piston Trail was incredibly easy to use. Set up of the scope only took minutes. Doped the scope for 30 feet and its been squirrel decimation ever since. Slightly louder than I expected given the write up of the Trail's quiet delivery but the break in period is still in the honey moon stages so we'll see.

The only thing I don't like about the rifle is the trigger. There's nothing smooth/easy about it. I've since ordered the GRT III as a replacement and awaiting its arrival. I ordered mine after reading additional reviews of this particular pellet rifles and others.

Overall, I'd give the Benjamin Trail NP pellet rifle a rating of 8 out of 10 when in need of a solution of sending rodents to visit their dead ancestors.

Got the Trail .22 last week and was very excited to finally have a Benjamin NP, after waiting for the rite opportunity. I did a lot of research (I thought I did) about which rifle I should get and came up with this one because the Marauder costs too much. I knew I didn't want another springer rocking my scope off the mounts every ten shots so, I went with the Nitro Piston... I must say it's much quieter than a springer (after 150 shots) and, the recoil is'nt bad at all..

Let me start off by telling you that I'm 47 years old and I've been shooting break barrels since I was 20 years old so, I know how to shoot them. I have put about 200 rounds thru this piece and, I mean to tell you that I have never experienced a more unpredictable pattern at 20 yds than I have with this Trail NP .22cal. Oh yea, I've done all the things an experienced break barrel rifle owner is supposed to do like, tighten the stock bolts, clean the barrel, blue loctite the scope, artilery hold, etc, etc... like I said, I'm not new to shooting break barrels... It's just that every time I think I'm on to something, it starts shooting very, very erratic again.. first its shooting low, then its shooting high, then its hitting on a nice pattern; repeat....***Stay with me til the end****

Started out shooting cheap Daisy paper punch pellets just to help with the break in... moved on to Crosman HP premiers to sight it in...no joy... Got on youtube after a few sessions and watched a review by EdGun..looked liked the Crosman Domed Premiere were pretty accurate so, I switched to them and, for a moment it looked like I had the winning ticket. After about 60 rounds or so and another good cleaning I realized the rifle wasn't performing any better than it was with the HP's.... I'm at a loss...

I bought this rifle for punching paper in the basement at 10-15 yards.

First - I must say,"What a beautiful gun". Nicely finished hardwood with sharp checkering and a thick, matte finish. It cleans up easily with some lemon oil which also brings out a really rich sheen that seems to smooth out and darken with time. The most beautiful pellet gun I've ever seen.

Second - This gun has lots of punch for the casual enthusiast. In the .22 cal, I could blow big holes in 3/4 particle board with only a few successive shots in one area. Small game doesn't stand a chance.

I have a small target, 12" x 12" cardboard box trap with plastic wrapped phone books inside and a particle board back-drop. Shooting a series of paper targets printed with 20 nickel-sized bulls-eyes? No problem. 8 - 10 out of ten shots inside of the bulls-eye were the norm after the scope was properly sighted at 10 yards. My largest problem was the occasional "flyer" that would hit the nine-ring instead. Practice with a modified artillery hold has helped me here.

From the very first shot, I had to shim the rear of the scope to push the crosshairs down into the POA. The shim was quite thick - about 0.020" - which was surprising since this scope could never be sighted in without it, and no instruction was given to indicate that this adaptation would be necessary. Further findings would reveal that this problem is very common with this family of Benjamin rifles.

After about 1000 shots, the gun began to lose all accuracy. Soon every shot became a "Flyer" despite any attempt to adapt my hold or adjust the optic. Tightening the three screws that secure the stock or the scope mount bolts made no difference.
