The owner's manual states that the .25-caliber rifle delivers 950 fps. That's a misprint. The max is 900 fps.

  • 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

This Trail NP XL rifle features an ambidextrous hardwood thumbhole stock. In .177 caliber, this rugged breakbarrel boasts an impressive 24 ft-lbs of muzzle energy, providing a velocity up to 1500 fps.

Things I liked: So far, I have about 400 pellets through it in just a week or two of use. The power and accuracy are very good, and like any magnum springer type gun, it does take a lot of practice to get the best hold figured out and be consistent at it. Personally, I have not found the artillery hold to be the best with this gun. Mine shoots best held snug (but night tight like a magnum CFR)against the shoulder with a light and loose grip at the front screws. The gun requires a pretty good effort to cock as should be expected with a gun this powerful, but it is smooth as can be, and closes very easily and solidly. Mine has barely dieseled since new, and is extremely consistent across my Oehler 35P. The std deviation is normally less than 5 FPS with any pellet tried so far, and the velocity is extremely consistent as well, norm,ally staying within 6-8 fps total spread for 5 shot strings.

Things I would have changed: The trigger is way too heavy and long regardless of the adjustments you can make. For a $300 gun, it should be a lot better than this. A synthetic stock offering to shave a pound or two off the weight would be nice too. Are you listening Crosman?

What others should know: It's fairly heavy for a pellet rifle. In fact it weighs more with the scope than my .458 Lott. It isn't for all day carrying while hunting (unless you have a sling, and even then I'd rather have a much lighter gun for a walking hunting rifle) or plinking, but it is very powerful for a springer type gun, and would make an excellent sit and watch squirrel gun. It has enough power for about any small game at distances out to around 40-50, and pests like raccoon or woodchucks to maybe 30 yards or a bit more depending on the pellet used and the shooters capabilities. Make sure to thoroughly clean the bore before your first shot!

Things I liked: I like the fact that this gun has a welded on weaver rail. This alone saves me mucho time checking 10-12 screws and loctiting them, and them later checking them again. Sound level after cleaning was acceptable.

Things I would have changed: The sight is working ok, but a little better quality would be a nice touch. The rifle bore was very dirty. Took me at least 8 patches to get it clean.

What others should know: I read the reviews on the NP Benjamin and they were not real flattering. I'm glad I got the XL as owners seem to be more pleased with this air gun. I know I am. Took me 30-45min to get it everything done and the rifle firing acceptable groups. As I practice, expect them to get tighter. This time I did not make a mistake and got the airgun I paid for.

Things I liked: I received it from PA and cleaned the barrel,installed the scope & sling and was shooting 1" groups @ 20 yards--all within 48 hours from ordering it! Thank you PA! From reading reviews I expected the barrel to be filthy and for it to sound like a cannon when firing initially. Didn't happen. The barrel was hardly dirty at all & didn't have a lot of excess oil to clean out. It also was seemed pretty quiet to me. Not any louder than my Benji Limited Edition (NPS action & also .22).I also was concerned about being able to cock it and its weight. My 1st impression was heh, this ain't so bad. Keep in mind I'm an old fart that'll turn 70 very soon. I thought, must be a lotta girlie men out there in the air gun world. Well, after running the first 50 or so pellets through....DANG, this sucker IS kind of a b**ch to cock, LOL. That night my shoulder throbbed like I'd been wrasslin' a grizzly but this section is supposed to be what I liked. OK, it's dead nuts accurate out to just short of 50 yds.

Things I would have changed: Ladies & Gentlemen, this IS a very heavy rifle. It's been a very long time but I'm sure it's heavier than the M-14 with full auto selector & 2 magazines taped together I carried in Nam. It does take some strength to cock but it is doable. I do wish it could be lighter but I knew all this going in and I'm still very happy with it. Everyone knows about the crappy trigger & that was resolved with a GRTIII.

What others should know: Just know that it is a tough cocker and it ain't a light weight. No way I could fire it accurately offhand. What works great for me is firing it off my deck resting the barrel on my hand which is supported by a couple of towels folded up. If I'm gonna shoot for a while I cock it by putting the butt on the deck floor and grabbing the barrel with BOTH hands.Sounds silly but I can plink for a long time using this old man method. I've got about 500 rounds through it so far and the scope hasn't blown up yet. Happy with that as far. Hope this helps out someone considering an XL1100. Just know its HEAVY and eat your Wheaties.

  • Conrad from USA asked:

    Can this gun be shipped in Russia?

    • Shiful from Bangladesh asked:

      What type of gun better,a gas ram or springer? Which is better RWS or Benjamin?

      • Chevota from USA:

        I'm guessing you mean the Diana 350? Diana is a better made gun, the XL is made in china. Gas rams are better if they don't fail, but the XL seems to have a good track record. The rams power is not adjustable but a coil spring is. Gas springs are quieter and smoother when fired, but a tuned coil spring can be as good. The XL also has a suppressor so it's even quieter, assuming it's legal to own in your area. If you have the $ I'd look at the Diana 350 and a Vortek tune kit for it. If you want a cheaper chinese version of the 350 look at the B28 or Ruger Air Magnum. You get what you pay for tho. Tough decisions, which is why many of us have multiple guns.

    • justin from USA asked:

      lots of people are saying the screws on this gun come off very easily and you have to locktite them is this true and if so how do I do that also is this gun really good for hunting?

      • Chevota from USA:

        It's very important the stock screws are all tight, which should be done first thing. Use loctite if needed. The barrel pivot bolt should not be very tight because sometimes they seize in place. If I had to estimate I'd say 5ftlbs max. They may or may not loosen, again use loctite if needed. Scope rings should be tight, but screws are small so be careful, loctite if needed. Yes I think it's a good hunting gun since it has good power, as long as it's enough for your quarry and accuracy, which varies, is good enough.

      • Santos from USA:

        I boutht an NPX 0.22 caiber over year ago for target practice and plinking. After several thousand shots I have not seen screws coming off. I check rifle & scope screws every 250 to 500 shots and I sometimes have to lightly tighten one or two screws (nothing out f the ordinary for abreak barrell).I have had no need for loctite.
