Product Description

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. ... ...

Accuracy is no problem. Power is no problem. Noise is no problem.
“The more you shoot the quieter this rifle gets and the better you shoot.”
Allow me to address any question or concern.
Now I am very huge on accuracy and am an expert shooter, I will revisit this point later.
To start:
Step 1 this rifle out of the box should be cleaned of excess grease and oil, run a bore brush through the barrel too.
Step 2 Tighten all screws with a screwdriver, the two stock screws, the trigger, and butt plate. & scope mounts and scope.
Important important important...tighten the big screw holding the barrel to the receiver. You will need to remove the stock to access this screw. That will be the two side screws on the stock and the two in the trigger well.
NOTE: this is a magnum air gun, shooting it will loosen ALL screws throughout this rifle. Use blue Loctite.
Step#3 Break it in shooting cheap daisy pellets into the dirt or a whatever. This is not for practice, only to break in the rifle. (Needs to have a break-in period. in this period this rifle is burning off excess oil and grease and seating in all its components. Failure to do this will result in poor accuracy.) 150-500 pellets.
Next: IMPORTANT this rifle likes 10.5 grain and up pellets. Anything less will cause poor accuracy. Recommend Crosman Premier ultra mags domed. Or JSB exact monsters 13.4 grain.
Look it’s like this, the more weight (grain) of the pellet, the more accurate this rifle. Reason for this is this is a Super Mag rifle. Light grain pellets will become unstable flying out of this thing at blazing speeds loosing accuracy. Heavy is better, more kinetic energy delivered on target means more destruction.
This is Crossman big dog flag ship of break barrels.

Until now, every one of my reviews has been for items I've purchased at Amazon or an Amazon vendor but in this case I utilized a gift certificate [and cash outlay difference] to purchase this excellent rifle at another internet sporting goods vendor. That said, I purchased the Crosman Benjamin Trail NP [** Nitro Piston] XL 725 .25 caliber air rifle [with scope] for three very distinct reasons: First, the present .25 caliber is the highest caliber one can purchase for an adult airgun and the humane take-down power [the 'first' time around] of the .25 caliber pellet is, IMO and so stated, superior to the other common airgun calibers such as the .177, 20 caliber and in 'some' cases even the robust .22 caliber. Second, I wanted the newer technology "Nitro Piston" firing mechanism which has received very favorable reviews and is extremely quiet as compared to a spring-piston firing mechanism. Third, I wanted the thumb-through stock for greater stability of the weapon. And make no mistake, this rifle is a 'weapon' in every sense of the word where the .25 caliber pellet delivers a force that in 'reasonable' yardage will dispatch the target with one shot and humanely so. This, for me anyway, is an important consideration because I do not use the weapon for 'sport' but rather pest control of proliferating [** I live in a very rural area] property damaging squirrels and gophers. Hence, my primary interest is a close-range "one shot/one kill" where the targeted pest does not suffer and is dropped immediately and ceases to move after being hit.

You may wish to see my review of the Gamo 'Big Cat' .22 caliber rifle and some facts I put out from certain individuals who know little of ballistics and feel that only 'velocity' matters where there are many other factors to consider.

Allow me to clear the air on this Rifle... After all the mixed reviews on this gun I was initially scared away from it,but I was attracted to the power and looks that it had. I myself am an extremely seasoned marksman, and although only 22 years old I have more experience with rifles and guns than most people 3 times my age ( my dad was captain of the SWAT team for my entire life)...

Anyway I decided to buy this rifle from my local gun store here in Newport (knowing that if it was as bad as everyone said i could return it after the weekend) despite the negative and even sometimes Hateful reviews it had been given. I've had it for 2 weeks, put more than a thousand pellets through it, and here is my unbiased opinion thus far.

My first impression of this gun was Great... It looked really nice, it was (or at least felt) extremely solid, and came with a well proportioned scope in my opinion. Some people complained that the wood wasn't well finished or looked like it had been done by a kid... Now maybe mine was just done perfectly idk, but i was amazed and should i say surprised by the craftsman ship. Maybe i was expecting less from the reviews, but i was, Like I said "Impressed". I really dont buy a rifle for the finish anyway because I know i'm going to abuse it outdoors in the mud and rain etc...

Ok so on to performance. The first day i wanted to put as much lead through the barrel as possible to break it in... I only had about an hour of daylight left after i got home, So i quickly mounted the scope, and went to my backyard where i regularly shoot other air rifles as well. In just under an hour i put 350 rounds through it... you do the math. I can see how people would give this gun a bad review up to this point. I sight all my Air rifles in at 50 yards.
