Where can i buy just the wood stock
Crosman is the only source, and the part # is NP214WX-450 I got a price from a friend, who got the quote from crosman in Jan '15 of $109.40. That price is 4x that of the non-NP Trail, so it's either made in the US or artificially inflated. So who knows what it is now, but if you do get a price then please post it along with date.
Call Crosman. They'd have them if they are available
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?
You could try some loctite because maybe it's just unscrewing? Imo the problem is the tapered part of the shroud. It's plastic so the piston impact (aka reverse recoil) hammers that tapered piece and crushes it slightly so it's loose. All the previous models used an aluminum piece, but they cheaped out on the NP2 and we pay the price for it. It can be modded to take the load off that piece, which involves gluing or screwing the baffle to the shroud so the shroud tube is locked to the barrel and no longer crushing the tapered piece. You'd glue the part of the baffle where the threads are because the rest of the baffle has too much give. You can also try some other things to reduce the piston impact, like using heavier pellets and never seating the pellets any deeper than you would with your finger. Seating tools are a bad idea, anyone who says otherwise doesn't understand the way the gun works. Another option is modding the main seal, but too involved to get into here. A heavier scope helps a little too, it adds weight to dampen the reverse recoil. Cocking the gun also puts undue stress on it because the baffle flexes which means it tilts the taper a bit. Not much that combined with the pounding is obviously too much for it because these things break all the time. If you have a lathe you can make a taper out of alum. Unfortunately the alum tapers from the older guns don't fit because their shrouds had a smaller OD. I thought by now Crosman would've fixed this flaw, but it must be more profitable not to.
Tried that ???
Just retighten the shroud. The barrel is fused to the breech block and won't come lose.
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 ?
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.
crazy recoil cant find one that wont fail.Leapers UTG 3-12x44 AO Rifle Scope, EZ-TAP, Ill. Mil-Dot Reticle, 1/4 MOA, 30mm Tube, Weaver Rings Hawke Optics 2.5-10x44 AO Varmint Rifle Scope, 1/2 Mil-Dot Reticle, 1/4 MOA, 1" Tube a leupold rifleman and a bushnell retical split in half if you have put more than 1000 rounds with 1 scope on this gun please let me know what it is because im killing scopes left and right
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.
Look for something in the Hawke or leapers line with an "etched glass" reticle
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.
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.
Weren't they advertising that it only needed 10 lbs of cocking effort? 28 lbs is nearly 3 times as much..
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.
They said 10lb less cocking force required.
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?
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!
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.
Why is this gun rated a 2 for loudness with higher FPS than the original Trail NP rated at a 3???
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.
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.
How long is the Barrel???
15.75" physical barrel + shroud another 4"
What is the cocking effort?
what's the trigger pull lbs.
3 lbs 4.3 ounces
When will you have an accuracy test on this gun?
Not sure yet. Keep checking back for updates!
lots of talk about great cocking effort. So what is the cocking effort required ?
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?
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://www.pyramydair.com/airgun-resources/manuals/PY-A-3909.pdf youtube and search out air rifle scope mounting for more hints.
Here is a good article on how to mount a scope.
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.
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.
