  • 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

  • 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.



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: Power, looks, fit and finish for the price, decent (though fragile) scope included. Back in 2015 I thought it a bit hard but fun to shoot as the most powerful non PCP airgun. The NP XL pioneered a power level that allowed the shooter to effectively hunt larger game and pests at longer ranges than what the smaller caliber break barrels or CO2's allowed you to do for a reasonably low price without having to go PCP. Marmots, skunks or raccoons are now able to be ethically harvested (or terminated) at ranges long enough for comfort without having to resort to the far more expensive PCP's if you could not afford them or the much louder rimfire firearms where safety, noise or trajectory and backstop of the 1 1/2 mile range issues make them impractical.

Things I would have changed: Overall fit and finish, excessively long trigger pull can disturb aim and prolongs your shot, unwieldy, heavy, hard to cock, hard to shoot well given recoil, Centerpoint scope has mil dots and nice optical quality for what it is but after a few hundred shots stopped holding zero. While not terribly loud thanks to the gas piston, given how more modern airguns even costing far less are now integrally suppressed this loudness is no longer competitive and better offerings as of 2017 abound even assuming same power level. If I could suggest Crosman (Benjamin) one thing is to update the rifle as the design is getting long in the tooth given that similar rifles at similar power levels at the same price point perform better and are nicer. As with all products showing their age, either the price should drop, the design updated into a new series to integrate more modern refinements at this pricepoint, or both.

What others should know: This break barrel was king of the non PCP hill but for the money has been surpassed, particularly by the Hatsan QE 135 Vortex. On paper the power, cocking force, heft and characteristics should be the same given the both cost the same, and the Hatsan doesn't come with a scope. However, the Benjamin lacks open sights where the Hatsan can be shot quite easily with its fiber optics and while Crosman gives you a pretty nice scope, mine didn't last so the price of a new one might have to be factored into the acquisition cost. I know it's a magnum but I can shoot 50-100 shots in the Hatsan no problem and the Benjamin is more tiring to shoot, has more recoil, is louder, less accurate, harder to shoot well. It's now 2017 and this rifle is priced in a competitive segment where you can get more for the same money. Without a price drop or an update, if you are willing to pay $300 dollars for a magnum break barrel then look at the Hatsan 135 QE Vortex in either 25 or 30, it's better in every way.

Things I liked: it looked good and I liked the feel and weight of it

Things I would have changed: quality control! this rifle had nicks and scratches on it by the scope rail, didn't hit as hard as either of the .22's I have. And finally the picatinny rail fell off the gun while I was shooting it! Was really nice to see my UTG 4x16x50 AO scope hit the ground.

What others should know: I had problems with this from day 1. It shoot to the left from 6" to 8". with the scope it came with. Tried 3 other scopes and finally got it some what zeroed in. As I said earlier, it was full of scratches, the trigger was very hard to use. Yes it was hard, almost felt jammed at times. It did get better after a while but it sucked. And it never would stay zeroed.( sure the rail being loose and falling off had something to do with that). Contacted PA 3 times about all this but they seemed to busy to care. I was told to get use to it, that maybe I didn't know how to zero a scope and last time I was told that if I really needed to send it back it would be on my dime because it really didn't sound like it was the gun. That was before the rail fell off. Now I'm trying to send it back, I'll let you know how that goes.......got a bad feeling about it though. I might have just got a lemon but this is the 2nd Benjamin I've had problems with, think I'll try something different.

Things I liked: Power

Things I would have changed: Trigger

What others should know: The photo shows the gun in a genuine hardwood stock - it is not. It comes in a synthetic brown stock- I asked the sales rep if it was supposed to be real wood or synthetic that the rep replied in a circle without giving a direct answer. The .22 version is much faster but this one has a bit more power.

  • saba from Georgia asked:

    were this gun made?

    • cj from USA asked:

      Can I kill a coyote with a head shot twenty yards or closer with a diabolo pellet in ,25

      • paul from USA:

        I looked up a chart for pellet size and the pellet required for an ethical kill shot. It suggested a .30 pellet for coyotes. Hope this helps.

    • jason from USA asked:

      Does this come in left handed stock??

      • Stanley from USA:

        The stock can be used either way its ( ambidextrous ) .
