  • Garrett from USA asked:

    Where can i buy just the wood stock

    • Tyler from USA:

      Call Crosman. They'd have them if they are available

  • dana from USA asked:

    I recently bought a Benjamin trail np 2 and after firing about 100 pellets the barrel seems to unscrew. Do I have a lemon or can I just retighten it?

    • Stanley from USA:

      Tried that ???

    • Luis from USA:

      Just retighten the shroud. The barrel is fused to the breech block and won't come lose.

    • Stanley from USA:

      I have an early NP in a Fury stock and mine turns too , but it just seems like the outside cover is turning? Maybe not the barrel itself ?

    • Carlton from USA:

      This is not an answer but mine does the same thing. Can feel the barrel twisting when cocking. Have read this in some other reviews about this rifle.

  • joe from USA asked:

    crazy recoil cant find one that wont fail.Leapers UTG 3-12x44 AO Rifle Scope, EZ-TAP, Ill.

    • Chevota from USA:

      I would replace the main seal and be sure the breech seal isn't leaking. Leaks break scopes. Why is too much to get into here, but chevota at hotmail if you want info.

    • Jerry from USA:

      Look for something in the Hawke or leapers line with an "etched glass" reticle

  • Sebastian from USA asked:

    If I return the rifle like they're asking me to do, suppose I asked for the same rifle as a replacement, wouldn't I still have the same problems that this model has or have they addressed the issues (cracked weaver rail). I really like the rifle, until it broke.

    • Chevota from USA:

      I think Crosman learned their lesson and have fixed them, but I wouldn't bet $ on it. I do however bet $ on them exchanging the next one if it does fail.

  • Sebastian from USA asked:

    Weren't they advertising that it only needed 10 lbs of cocking effort? 28 lbs is nearly 3 times as much..

    • Chevota from USA:

      They said 10 less yet it's exactly the same as my Trail. I suppose the 28 could be a typo, but I seriously doubt it.

    • Joel from USA:

      They said 10lb less cocking force required.

  • Robert from USA asked:

    Does Crosman expect the barrel accuracy to only be up to 10 meters/33 feet? What is their sales marketing distance accuracy on this rifle in their documentation?

    • Robert from USA:

      http://www.nrablog.com/post/2014/05/21/Crosmans-Benjamin-Trail-rifles-now-shipping-with-Nitro-Piston-2.aspx Thanks Robert, here is a link that clearly does not go into accuracy, but insinuates capability. I suspect returns will be aplenty if they are again marketing inferior merchandise. Crosman states and I will paraphrase, they spent over 1 million $ to create this new air rifle. We will see if they improved the barrel quality or what is most likely, just pure marketing and be dammed to the buying public. The proof is in the pudding!

    • Chevota from USA:

      It will probably be all over the place with some guns shooting .04" at 33', some 4" and everything in between. I seriously doubt they'll ever put a claim on accuracy because then returns would go up for not meeting it or sales would drop if they told the truth. You just have to play with the gun to get it to work, and if you can't you get another one or a new barrel and roll the dice again. It's like that with all cheaper guns so don't expect better from another mfg.

  • donald from USA asked:

    Why is this gun rated a 2 for loudness with higher FPS than the original Trail NP rated at a 3???

    • Chevota from USA:

      The normal Trail and even the XL should also be a 2, if they have it at 3 it's a mistake. This NP2 is probably at the exact same noise level as the Trail or maybe slightly quieter.

    • Mark from USA:

      Piston has plastic inserts at rear and a cushion rebound damper at front. Gas springs by nature are shorter duration in mechanical noise. And as Val says the shroud is designed to eliminate the pellet side of noise (some are just empty protective/decorative tubes). Noise with a spring gun is hard to judge from the shooters perspective. You have to be a few feet away with a friend shooting it as you head on the stock transmits noise differently in the shot cycle.

    • Val from USA:

      better shroud

  • donald from USA asked:

    How long is the Barrel???

    • Val from USA:

      15.75" physical barrel + shroud another 4"

  • Wayne from USA asked:

    What is the cocking effort?

    • Val from USA:

      28 lbs

  • Robert from USA asked:

    what's the trigger pull lbs.

    • Erika from U.S. Virgin Islands:

      3 lbs 4.3 ounces

  • Omar from USA asked:

    When will you have an accuracy test on this gun?

    • Erika from U.S. Virgin Islands:

      Not sure yet. Keep checking back for updates!

  • Ernest from USA asked:

    lots of talk about great cocking effort. So what is the cocking effort required ?

    • Val from USA:

      28 lbs

  • Ray from USA asked:

    I pre ordered my NP2 in April, I noticed that the scope is unmounted, I have never mounted a scope before how difficult is it? Is there a video you recommend to watch so I can get it mounted correctly?

    • Ed from USA:

      first off, remove the scope from the box. look through it and focus on something 100 yards away. as you look through it you will notice there is a sweet spot where every thing looks bright. and you see a full view through the optics and you are not looking through a tunnel. then you will see the best eye relief....distance. if you download the scopes manual it will say what it should be 3.3" give or take. when you have the rifle set and you look towards the target you want the scope mounted that 3.3" away from your eye. read this manual, it is not the same but it will show you the bolt tightening pattern. https://cdn.pyramydair.com/site/manuals/PY-A-3909.pdf youtube and search out air rifle scope mounting for more hints.

    • Val from USA:

      Here is a good article on how to mount a scope.

    • Chevota from USA:

      What I do to get the crosshairs straight with the gun is to stand back maybe 18-24" so you can see both the gun and crosshairs which makes it easy to get it perfect.

    • Sebastian from USA:

      All you have to do is screw the scope rings to the weaver rail with the provided allen wrench, then lay the scope on top of the rings in the proper angle so that the cross hairs are lined up with those of the target. Lastly, screw on the tops off the rings. It's not hard at all. Might take a little time to get your cross hairs perfectly straight. (+) However the last Benjamin Trail NP1 I ordered already had the scope mounted to the rings with the reticle perfectly symmetrical, all I had to do was set it on the weaver rail and screw it on. Hopefully the NP2 is the same.
