Benjamin Trail NP (Nitro Piston) XL Air Rifle Breakbarrel Gas piston Bull barrel Ambidextrous stock with twin cheekpieces Textured grip & forearm 70% quieter than most other breakbarrels! Includes unmounted CenterPoint Optics 3-9x40AO scope Sling swivel studs already mounted Hardwood stock 9.70 lbs. with included scope & mount; 8.50 lbs. for just the gun (we've found that the weight can vary as much as 8 oz. due to fluctuations in wood densities) The video on this page states it comes with a sling. It does not come with one. 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 the Crosman Nitro 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 The owner's manual states that the .25-caliber rifle delivers 950 fps. That's a misprint. The max is 900 fps. ... ...

Out here in the country we have a jackrabbit problem and so far we've shot about 30 with a Stoeger .177 pellet gun which takes 2-4 shots every time for a quick kill. I've shot 1 12-lbs jack with this .25 caliber, threw rabbit off his feet - body shot - instant kill. Makes rather large holes.
.25 carries a lot of punch
Very accurate (NOTE: slower pellets are traditionally MORE accurate).
3/8" grouping at 25years (H&N Barracuda).
Crow=magnum bullets destroy cans, oranges, etc. Whatever you shoot at.
Very quite - no ear protection needed which is an underrated perk.
Smooth trigger pull for the price.
It is a BEAST to cock, my girlfriend struggled to cock the gun with the stock on the ground.
Scope - Im just not a fan of it or the brand. Call me biased and take that statement with a grain of salt as it's held well for 500rds now.
Stock - pyramid air shows a beautifully refinished stock, but what you see in the pictures here on amazon is what you will actually get. Mine also had lots of splotching and some figure in the wood which as undesirable in this circumstance (coming from a woodsmith lol).
That being said. If youre hunting it will work up to 40yards before the bullet starts dropping fast. I have shot a squirrel (head shot) and it dropped pretty quick and painlessly. Also, I mainly use this gun for shooting tin cans in the back yards. Unlike my Gamo .177 which lets the pellets pass to quickly though the can walls, the .25 cal is large and slow enough to transfer the energy to more the cans. This is much more meaningful to younger shooters who often unknowingly prefer active targets and like to see results for a successful shot. That being said, if you want a gun that will stack all bullets in a hole at a good distance you might continue your search but i spent days looking before I opted for this gun and don't regret a second of my decision.
THIS NEXT STATEMENT APPLIES TO ANYONE WANTING TO REFINISH THIS STOCK SUCH AS I DID.
I stripped the old surface off using Paint Stripper (be very cautious if you have never used this before) the spent about 5hrs sanding going from 180 and finishing with 400 grit. I used a Transtint Reddish-Brown dye (personal choice) but a danish oil will give great results as well. Finish with a glossly finish and allow 24hrs to dry between coats. YES, 24hrs! Dont cheat the time and sand lighting, one pass, with 600-800grit after the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th coat. Before you apply the stain, DO NOT make the mistake I did and mist the wood with water before staining. Since I had a bone head moment and forget this step, i get really bad splotching down by the butt due to how thirsty the species of wood is (i believe it's Birch).
i can hit a target the size of a quarter with the same scope that it comes with no problem
this is a force to be reckoned with
this can pass througth solid poles of wood with no problem
but it takes about 150lbs of cocking force and i can lift my 100lbs friend with no problem and it is still kinda hard
this is not a toy but a high powered rifle
im am going to explain somthing that i got with my gun that i got from amazon what the nitro piston/gas ram does is it will compress the air in front of it causing small amounds of smoke and an insane crack, now i know what you're thinking, oh I'm just using pba (steel) pellets but i dont i use the heaviest .22 rounds that you can get (not to mention that they will not can WILL split a can right in half when filled with water)the rounds are jsb diablo jumbos they are the most accurate and do the most damage
i love this gun however the gun gives you a little buck but unless you cant shoot for crap it dosnt really effect accuracy
now on to the trigger, it suckED notice past tense suked first you need to send about 300-500 shots downrange and then the trigger will just comletly break that was the second stage and it snapped right off
then you needed to get a screwdiver (phillipshead) and take the trigger guard off and then you need to get the destroyed piece of plastic out and then it will be a VERY good trigger warning it will be sensitive
overall this is the best gun ever
