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.

Things I liked:To start off the trigger was lousy I removed the trigger and came up with a solution now it performs as it should without spending 40 bucks. Next I shot the rife for a couple days and to no avail it would not hold zero so I replaced the scope with a utg 4x16x40 and it now shoots a single hole at ten yards consistently Things I would have changed:The trigger without a doubt, come crossman I've been shooting your equipment since I was a kid get it together. And of course the centerpoint scope may be fine on my 22 br or one of my many pcp rifles bot not on a spring piston or nitro piston. What others should know:After performing all of the above this rifle after broken in over 600 shots is a tack driver in skilled hands
Things I liked:Its a good shooting gun I love it Things I would have changed:Not a thing What others should know:Its a good hunting gun I love shooting dows and other birds and its a good squril gun to
I purchased this rifle about 4-6 weeks ago, and have shot nearly two cans of Crossman precision .22 cal pellets through it. Very early on, it suffered what I guess was a seal failure, Making an escaping air sound, with a series of puffs thereafter, not moving the projectile at all. I cocked, and fired once again, and it shot fine. I began noticing an increasing loss of power, and upon buying some weighted, Gammo hunting pellets, which caused a failure every time I tried, and never would shoot these. A couple of days ago, it quit shooting any pellets, experiencing the failure as heretofore described. Has anyone else suffered this fate? I assume that I must return it to Crossman to have it repaired. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this gun! It's sturdy, smooth, and it shoots extremely hard, and well at around fifty yrds, and the included scope is very nice. I would rather have the Trail NP XL. My father, who's computer ignorant (can't even turn one on!) actually purchased it at Academy Sports and Outdoors, without doing the research, such as I do. Do you think Crossman would allow a person to pay the difference Upon return of the broken gun I currently possess, and send me the XL model? Thanks for any advice!
Jack from USA asked:
What pellets work best with this gun? I have yet to find my NP's favorite pellet. Thank You!
Matt from USA:
Crosman Premier domed 14.3gr work better than any JSB pellets I tried. I yet still have to try the H&N FTT 14.66gr. I did a test yesterday with the JSB 14.35gr 5.52mm head size and the Crosman Premier's 14.3gr and the Crosman pellets fit in the barrel much tighter and had an average FPS of about 675. Where as the JSB 14.35gr pellets shot at only 565fps! So get at least a large head size like a 5.53mm to a 5.54mm head sized pellet.
Janet from USA asked:
Does it also come with a sling? I have the 177 version of this purchased from pyramid that did come with the sling.
Val from USA:
These no longer come with the slings (they used to last year).
