  • Robert from USA asked:

    Why does the .177 cost way more than the .22?

    • Tyler from USA:

      It's on sale

  • george from USA asked:

    Having trouble finding out how/where to lube the nitro piston. I recall reading 2 drops of silicone....but where? curley12

    • John from USA:

      The Nitro piston is inside the piston tube. Break the barrel open enough to allow you to put one or two drops down into the Nitro piston tube. Sit air rifle upright in a corner, allowing the silicone chamber oil to flow into the piston chamber. Afte4 a while, when you break the barrel, load a pellet, and shoot. The air rifle may diesel a few times when shooting.

  • William from USA asked:

    I put my rifle in the gun cabinet cocked. Tried to shoot it and found it had lost power. Would not fire the pellet out of the barrel. What would I need to do to restore power?

    • Tyler from USA:

      Sounds like your gas ram/piston has leaked. You would need it replaced. If you are still within your warranty period, give Crosman a call, they should be able to hook you up with the nearest service center to get it replaced.

  • Glen from USA asked:

    Is BENJAMIN engraved into the bottom of the forstock ?? Is it shipped in the original box ?? What BENJAMIN sling would fit ??

    • Mike from Australia asked:

      Gday, Please advise what are the best pellets to use for accuracy in a Crosman .22 titan nitro?

      • Tyler from USA:

        I've always had good luck with H&N Field Target Trophy pellets in mine

    • Declan from USA asked:

      Hello all! i was wondering if it is possible to put a bipod on these air rifles somehow, or if you had any suggestions on a specific product, but i am on a budget of about 60 bucks for a bipod. Thanks!

      • Tyler from USA:

        You could use a barrel mounted bipod but that is not smart in the long run as your accuracy will suffer.

    • Daniel from USA asked:

      Hello, could you please tell me the difference between the Benjamin Titan GP and Np

      • Declan from USA:

        There is no difference, it is the same thing, but GP means Gas piston and NP is Nitro Piston. Same thing!

    • Nick from USA asked:

      I bought the Crosman Shockwave and returned it for this one, Like the stock alot better but the Shockwave seemed like it was more powerful and I was under the impression they shared the exact same powerplant! Is there a difference? Im lost on an explanation!

      • Chevota from USA:

        They are the same gun except for the stock and open sights. Power and accuracy can be all over the place gun to gun so you're not crazy. Power loss can be a variety of and combination of things, but first I'd look at is the gas spring which I haven't had good luck with at all. You can estimate the condition of yours by measuring the cocking effort, which should be ~32lbs at peak. Most people use a bathroom scale but they're too inaccurate at low weights. I use a cheap $6 luggage scale from ebay. I tie cord 1" back from the muzzle and measure from that cord. Main seal and breech seal leakage are another, as are bore and transfer port quality. You can email me at chevota at hotmail and I'll send a ton of details on what you can do to get the most from the gun using basic tools and very little to no cost. That goes for anyone...

    • Ryan from USA asked:

      what pellets group the best with the .22 version? crosman ultra magnum domes seem to go all over the place, whereas rws pointed seem a lot tighter but still not as tight as i'd like.

      • Chevota from USA:

        Generally the Crosman Premier round nose work very well. My fave is JSB round nose, and in that gun I use the 14.3gr. It could be the barrel is fubar, but may be the scope has parallax at your range, or the scopes erector tube is moving. Lots of other stuff can cause issues, a biggie is the shooter and/or what the gun rests on. Sometimes these issues work better or worse with certain pellets, sometimes it's just a mystery. My email is in the re above, which covers all that stuff if you want it.

    • ducksoupe from USA asked:

      Can I put the weaver sling mount on my Benjamin suppressor to use with the sling?

      • Chevota from USA:

        The beat way imo is to check out the sling mount on the older Trail Hardwood or Trail All Weather. You can buy that and mod your barrel block to accept it, or just buy a Trail barrel which I prefer since it's a suppressor barrel and quieter. See my email above if you want details, like the part # etc.

    • dean from USA asked:

      Once cocked, can I break open the barrel again? And what happens if I pull the trigger( dry fire)

      • Chevota from USA:

        You can open the barrel again any time, like if you forgot to put a pellet in. Dry firing is not good for the gun but especially not good for the scope because it creates a tremendous shock and the scope is the most delicate part and it can break. Best avoided if possible but if you gotta do it take the scope off. If you cock it and cannot or don't want to fire it, you're kinda stuck because the the gun has a safety device (anti-bear trap) that prevents uncocking it. What it does is prevents the trigger from being pulled unless the barrel is closed. Without the safety device you risk two things if the trigger is accidentally pulled while the barrel is open; one is the barrel slamming closed which will bend the barrel, two is physical injury from being hit by the barrel or getting your fingers caught in the breech. I remove that device which allows you to uncock it if you need to. Simply pull the barrel back to the fully cocked position, pull the trigger, then return the barrel to the closed position. It releases with the full force you used to cock it so be ready. So you can see why they made that device, but up to you of you want to remove it, just be wary.

      • Stanley from USA:

        Yes i barrel can reopened once cocked . I wouldn't dry fire any break barrel rifle they say it could be damaged . If your not going to shoot it (dry fire ) don't cock it.

    • jam from USA asked:

      What pellet do you recommend for long range accuracy?

      • Chevota from USA:

        In 177 I'd try H&N Barracuda, JSB 10.34gr, and Crosman round nose 10.5gr. In 22 I suppose JSB 14.3 to 18.1 if you're ok with the lower speed, or Crosman round nose. I'm sure there are others but those are the most popular and for good reason.

    • Paul from USA asked:

      Can this gun shoot quarter size groupings at 20, 30 and 40 meters? If not what can one expect at these distances.

      • Chevota from USA:

        Each gun shoots differently due to quality, which is why Crosman will never make accuracy claims. So it's possible, but a roll of the dice.

      • Dan from USA:

        Mine will do that on a windy day at 20 with H&N FTT, and sometimes under a dime when it's calm. I haven't put it on paper farther than that.

    • Andrei from USA asked:

      what scope would you recommend for this rifle considering that is for field target?

      • Tyler from USA:

        That depends on the class you intend to shoot. If hunter class, I would look at the Leapers UTG 3-12x44 scope: UTG 3-12x44 AO SWAT Accushot...

    • Mason from USA asked:

      could a 10 year old shoot it?

      • Chevota from USA:

        It may be a bit heavy and hard to cock for a 10yr old. Many of the Gamo guns have barrels that are mostly plastic which shave off a lot of weight, especially off the front which helps a lot. And the coil spring versions of either mfg are adjustable if you're willing to take it apart. I have one that only takes 12lbs to cock. A Gamo Hornet is a good example and they're usually cheaper. If you want a nitro gun then you can get this Titan and buy the lighter nitro spring which should reduce cocking to 20lbs. The lighter nitro is $26 from Crosman. chevota at hotmail if you need details on how.

    • James from USA asked:

      What would be a good scope under $100 for my Titan gp .22?

      • Thomas from USA:

        Try the center point 4-16x40 AO with red and green illumination.Works wonders on my trail np2

    • Brandon from USA asked:

      I baught a tasco world class 3-9x40 silver scope and I was wanting to know if it will fit the mounts that came with my benjamin nitro piston

      • Greg from USA:

        Please note that if the scope is"T made for spring powered air guns, it will not stand up to the sharp recoil and will shortly fall apart. Air guns recoil both back, and then sharply forward. Firearm scopes are not built for the forward recoil. They are built only for the rearward recoil.

      • Dan the Man from USA:

        Yes, it should fit them.

    • Antonio B from Saipan (Northern Mariana Islands) asked:

      Can you ship to US Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands?

      • Dan the Man from USA:

        You would need to check with customs to be certain.

    • James from USA asked:

      Is this made in the USA?

      • Brandon from USA:

        no but for china well made samari

      • Erika from U.S. Virgin Islands:

        No, it is made in China

    • Sam from USA asked:

      Does anyone else have an issue with puting any mount on the scope using the scope stop because the stop pin never goes directly in the hole and if you try to match the pin up in the hole, the mount does not go onto the gun.

      • Chevota from USA:

        The way I do it is put the mount on first but not tighten it all the way, then screw the stop into the hole. If it doesn't line up you can try turning the mount around. If that doesn't work ask Crosman for a new mount.

    • rick from USA asked:

      can u buy this gun without a scope and open sights

      • Darrell from USA:

        No but you can use the rear site off a Trail NP pistol and the front site from a Phantom 1000. Contact Crosman for the parts. I did the same to mine and it works fine.

      • Jerry from USA:

        No Sir, It's a package deal

      • Dan the Man from USA:


    • dereck from USA asked:

      what is the best replacement scope for 50 or under

      • tristen from USA:

        i suggest saving your money for something a little more expansive. till then, the packaged scope will work fine. i used mine for about 4 months till i got a $90 leapers 3-9x40 MD IR AO scope. and tomorrow im receiving my Hawke MD IR AO scope for about $130 since the leapers broke after about a year of use. go with a high quality scope for atleast $100 like say a centerpoint or Hawke or BSA. im not a big fan of anything leapers UTG except for scope mounts. those work fine lol.

    • Earl from USA asked:

      The manual states that the Max velocity is 675 fps vs the stated 1200 on the add. Why is the manual wrong? Or is it?

      • Todd from USA:

        I was thinking you got a model (or just the manual) meant for some state with a 700fps limit.

      • Earl from USA:

        The Manual apparently is for the original GP models (BW7M77MP) and is not the manual for this model BW1K77NP.

    • john from USA asked:

      The stock on my Titan smells like some sort of Chemical. How do I remove that smell?

      • Andrew from USA:

        My guess is that you're smelling the rubber from the shoulder pad? Not much you can do other than wait it out.

      • Chevota from USA:

        I've never heard of that... If it were me I'd take the stock off and let it bake in the sun, or somewhere hot with ventilation. Are you sure it isn't dieseling smoke? That will go away quickly.

    • Mikheil from USA asked:

      Benj-BW1K77NP Is NP not GP you can see it in official crosman site, which one is this? Is it really BW1K77NP? GP model number is different

      • Thomas from USA:


      • Chevota from USA:

        How is it different? Seems the same to me.

    • stephen from Canada asked:

      has anyone come up with a way to put sling swivels on this rifle.

      • tristen from USA:

        really simple. get a sling swivel stud pack from here, and screw them into a small hole you make with a drill in the forearm and in the stock of the gun. then just add swivels and a sling

      • Chevota from USA:

        Look at the Trail to get an idea. There are other ways but that's the best setup imo. You can mod your barrel to accept the mount, or buy a Trail barrel which is the way to go imo because you get the suppressed barrel too. You can also change calibers if you want.

      • Stick from USA:

        Yes, Read thru the reviews.
