    Nitro Piston powerplant

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: Its a very powerful gun for the money and appeared to be well built

Things I would have changed: Benjamin NEEDS to recall these as there is a KNOWN issue with the Scope mount coming UNSHEARED from the gun. I shot mine less than 5o times and the scope mount sheared off and fell to the cement below me.

What others should know: Pyramyd Air, being the best company to buy from took COMPLETE care of me, with a refund and also return postage. This review has NO BEARING on Pyramyd Air, but Crosman/Benjamin. The same thing happened to Paul Capello when he reviewed the rifle. People buy your rifles from Pyramyd Air.................They back it up.

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.

  • Joe from USA asked:

    When you say you tuned your xl what did you do to tune it ?

    • 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.
