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 a gas-piston over a spring-piston air rifle:
  • 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 Benjamin Trail NP all-weather air rifle features a black synthetic thumbhole stock. The ambi stock accommodates right-handed and left-handed shooters because it has raised cheekpieces on both sides of the buttstock. Use this air rifle for dispatching small garden pests, game such as rabbits and squirrels, and plinking.

Verified Purchase

Things I liked: After one year of ownership, and many tins of pellets through the gun, I know I got a lot of gun for my money even though two upgrades (scope and trigger) were needed to make my 177 truly enjoyable. Very quiet (backyard friendly!), not very fussy about pellets but really likes RWS SD, H&N FTT and JSB MDE. With these I get close to 1" groups at 30 yards which I consider good for a gun at this price point. Sighted in at 20 yards there is a flat trajectory out to almost 40 yards. ThCocking effort is ok for a couple of hours of target shooting but definitely not kid friendly. Power is outstanding. Do not think for a second that you need a 22 for humane hunting of rabbit or squirrel at a distance that allows accurate head shots-about 30 yards for me. Very dependable, doesn't recoil much so I have no trouble with bolts or scope screws coming loose or scope moving in the rings or reticle splitting or rotating.

Things I would have changed: Needs better trigger. The trigger blade is a bit too close to the pistol grip for my hand. An unscoped version at a lower price would be nice. The Centerpoint scope isn't bad, it is actually pretty good considering the entire package is about $200, but it is a budget scope and you know it once you've looked through a nice scope.

What others should know: Don't expect this $200 gun to perform like a $1500 PCP. But it is fun to shoot and I am very happy with its performance and perfect reliability. Medium weight pellets in the 8-9 gr range provide flat trajectory and more than enough power. Maybe this will go on a closeout sale soon as the NP2 is an updated replacement. I would still choose the NP if you're planning on using the bundled scope at all because only the NP has an AO scope.

  • reene from USA asked:

    Gun don't shoot like it don't have enough power can it be fixed left that cock too long

    • Chevota from USA:

      Several things can cause power loss, but significant loss is almost always because the nitro spring has leaked. Contact Crosman for a new one, either free if under warranty or $26 if not. You can tell if it's the nitro by the peak cocking effort, which is typically 30-32lbs, so if below 28lbs it leaked by however much easier it is to cock. When cocked the pressure is higher and the seal is against a different part of the shaft so it's very possible leaving it cocked caused it, but likely it would've leaked sooner or later anyway.

    • Brian from USA:

      I have the same problem.. it means your nitro piston is wearing out ... i bought a new one and it fixed the problem ... i don't know who all carry them anymore but search cr nitro piston and you'll find one for sure :) i hope this helped you

    • Joe from USA:

      Might need to have nitro piston swapped, but it's unlikely due to it being left cocked. Call Crosman!

  • Mike from USA asked:

    Benjamin Trail NP XL 0.177 - What is the FPs & Ft/LBS with lead pellets using 7.9 pellets

    • Chevota from USA:

      It depends on the condition of the gun you get, but this Trail AW in 177 will be ~16ftlbs +-2. Tuned it'll be 18-19. The Trail XL which is what you asked about is more like 22 +-2. The XL does much better in 22 because 177 is too small for the gun, so a 22 will be an extra 2-4ftlbs, and ~28 if tuned. An XL also shoots 177 too fast, so again 22 is better.

    • Dan the Man from USA:

      Around 1,000 fps / 18 ft lbs.

  • Mike from USA asked:

    1200 fps is that with lead free pellets on the bengamin trail NP 0.177 cal & Does this rifle come in a wood stock Edition

    • Chevota from USA:

      Something to consider if they don't have exactly what you want: You can buy the parts cheap, so you can convert this Trail AW in 177 to wood for ~28, or convert a Trail in wood to 177 for ~$17. I prefer the wood stock and 177, but it's nice to have 22 as well. For another $12 in parts you can make the other barrel complete with all the little parts so you can change caliber in a few minutes. If anyone plans on doing this they should probably ask me for details to get it right first time; chevota at hotmail. Crosman is nice to deal with, but not good with parts info.

    • Dan the Man from USA:

      Yes. Yes, only currently in .22: Benjamin Trail NP Nitro Piston....
