    Things I liked:

    The nitro piston is awesome and it is a very quiet gun.

    What others should know:

    I still am hesitant about the durability of the nitro-piston over a spring. They say the nitro piston will outlast a spring, but it seems to me that a the seals involved would eventually give out. I guess only time will tell.

    Things I liked:

    The smooth break barrel action Long dove tail mounting rail Sufficient scope that comes with the package Shoots a variety of pellets well Comfortable stock and check rest

    Things I would have changed:

    The finish on the synthetic stock is slightly below par. A wood stock option would be nice The trigger adjustment screw is loose and may back out over time. The two stage trigger is prone to sticking causing rough action. (This can be fixed by filing or "polishing" the outside edges of the trigger)

    What others should know:

    For the price it is the best I have shot. If you want something better you will be in the $700 range. I think its one of the best none pcp break barrel airguns on the market. I have shot the best and allot of the rest. I like this gun and show it to my competition shooting friends, and they are always surprised at the smooth feel of the nitro piston.

    Things I liked:

    After owning this rifle for over a year. Here is my update: I love this gun to death. It had been performing superbly ever since it was out of the box. The cocking was smooth (no grounding at all) and effortless and the grouping was better than my RWS 350 magnum. And the light weight and quietness of this rifle just make me love it even more.

    Things I would have changed:

    And one day I forgot it fired it after I cocked it and loaded the bullet. And I let it cocked for almost 3 weeks before I realized that it was loaded. I started to test fire it and it would not group anymore. After chrony fired it, the speed was around 450 fps, a big drop from 680 fps before the episode, and the vairations were really big. They are about 20 to 30 fps above and below average. That is why it would not group anymore. Well, It's warranty period has expired and I had to order the gas spring from Crosman for $17.5. It has not arrived yet, but I will update once I put the new gas spring in.

    What others should know:

    What have learned from this? DO NOT Leave it COCKED for 3 WEEKS. Better yet, treat it as a springer and don't leave it cocked too long!

    Things I liked:

    Quiet

    Things I would have changed:

    workmanship of the carbon fiber is below what I would expect from this rifle compared to the Benjamin trail. I would have preffered to receive rifle without a scratch, which is what I received. Not Pyramids fault, packaging was superb, but bad reflection on manufacturer.

    What others should know:

    I expected a lot more from this rifle. I thought I was upgrading from my Benjamin Trail NP (made in China) to the NPSS (made in USA), but what I received was substandard plastic parts flaking with imperfections on the edges and a break barrel that grinds when you cock it. I ordered the Camo and it looks a little better, but not a shooter out of the box by any means. Still grinds and will require sending to a prof. tuner to make this a rifle worth shooting.

    Things I liked:

    The NPSS seems to be a really well made rifle that feels solid. I found the operation to be very easy to use. The one piece scope mount was nice, and the scope has a quality appearance. I wouldn't call it the more accurate rifle I've shot, but focus on a single pellet type and stick with it. My decision was that I'm betting that the Nitro Piston aspect of the rifle will reduce future maintenance expense for me, thus making it the better long term choice.

    What others should know:

    One thing that is disturbing for me is that about every 20th or so shot the rifle would not pump, like there was no catch mechanism grabbing. wiggle the exposed pump levers and all is back to normal. Seems to occur more when you're shooting a lot of shots through.

    Things I liked:

    Really is fun to shoot. Smooth to cock, and really is not that loud. The scope is very clear and mounts well.

    Things I would have changed:

    Trigger is a tad heavy, but livable.

    What others should know:

    The break-in period isn't the most fun. There was some grinding when cocking it for a little while, but it has seemed to go away after a week. It was by no means consistent grinding either.

    Things I liked:

    I was looking forward to my first nitro piston... for all the reasons associated with a gas piston in place of a metal spring. The gun cocks nicely... smooth and not difficult. Sound level is good too... not very loud. However...

    Things I would have changed:

    I had to send the rifle back. The stock was well below what I can call acceptable quality. "Synthetic" (meaning Plastic) was a disappointment. It had rough edges with molding burrs, and had a cheap look and feel. I had read that it had a lousy trigger before buying it, and yes, it does. Very heavy, and unpredictable.

    What others should know:

    I sent the gun back, exchanged for the Benjamin Trail NP hardwood. It's the same nitro setup by Crosman, much nicer stock, and slightly cheaper. Same lousy trigger, but I can use the savings to buy a nice replacement trigger. Pyramid Air was great to work with re/ the return.

    I bought this gun when it was named crosman npss the same thing though. This gun is super quiet and accurate with a nice velocity. Some times when I kill one animal if there is others right by they stay. mine produces nice groups with H&N baracuda match pelets.

    Things I would have changed:

    I would like it to be a little lighter and mabey a ajustable but pad.

    Things I liked:

    It looks pretty cool, it's very easy to cock. Breaking the barrel doesn't require a slap---you can do it with ease sitting down. Just take hold and pull down. The accuracy is ok. Comes with a nice centerpoint scope.

    Things I would have changed:

    It's short. The stock is just too small, and it made the gun feel like it should be front heavy, although it really wasn't. CPHP pellets were very difficult to load. They required a hard push which resulted in very sore fingertips. The coating on the gun seems like it can peel up.

    What others should know:

    Mine started to grind and catch while cocking it somewhere around the 350 pellet mark. I sent it back and bought a Trail NPXL instead. I'm WAY happier with it.

    Things I liked:

    The carbon fiber finish. It is extremely accurate from the first shot. The telescope that came with the rifle is also of a good quality. No problem with the two stage trigger. Noice is acceptable, much better than other spring rifles with the same power.

    Things I would have changed:

    It is heavy.

    What others should know:

    Before doing my first shot, I took the time to clean the barrel, it was very dirty. The first shot was loud. Cocking for that first shot required a lot of pressure but after that it is easying. The telescope took about five shots to adjust. I am very pleased with my Remington NPSS.

    Things I liked:

    I'm pretty laid back, I "liked" just about everything with this Remington. It is very simple to use. The cocking mechanism is crisp, as well as the trigger. Very quiet, with the correct pellet.I got a .177 calibre.

    Things I would have changed:

    I hadn't shot an air gun for about 35 years, excuse me 45 years. This and the Crosman All Weather NP Trail (.22) are awesome. Length of the butt/stock could be a little longer, but that would change the balance point. As with all people spending recreation money, it could be less costly...

    What others should know:

    Keep plinking! Learn which pellets work best with which ever gun you have to shoot. After about 3000 rounds it will make a difference.

    Things I liked:

    Fit, feel of the gun are great. Good lines. Scope and mounting system are solid, quality items. The cocking is easier than I anticipated. I ordered the .22 cal and it has some power! Scope is clear and bright, easy access to adjustments. I am happy with selecting this rifle. Good advice also from Rick, whom I chatted with a couple of times on comparison of rifles and also watched the videos. Pyramid was very easy to work with. I chose not to get the 10 for $10.

    Things I would have changed:

    Although I was able to make a good adjustment on the trigger, the first stage is a bit to long for my liking. A good fully adjustable trigger would really fine tune this rifle. Offer it in camo other than digital - really to techy for me. I got black.

    What others should know:

    I would recommend this rifel. I rated the accuracy 3 because I am not sure yet what will happen with it. I've read about and it seems to be proving true, that this rifle, and others like it, need to have a good volume of shots fired before it settles in. I have gotten some really tight groups but it has been inconsistent, so I can't say good or bad on this point yet.

    Things I liked:

    The feel, balance, look, smoothness of cocking. The accuracy is very good, testing showed that JSB Exacts shoot 1" groups at 30 yards. This is before I did any tuning. I'm sure that it could be better with someone else behind the trigger. Sounds loud next to gun while shooting, however, stand back 15' and it is fairly quiet for a break barrel. The inside and outside show very good quality. This is a nice package. Since I don’t own a chrony, I estimated by using Hawke Chair Gun software that the JSB shoot around 900 fps and the Benjamin 10.5 grain shot around 807 fps. I really like this gun.

    Things I would have changed:

    That they use more blue locktight for the trigger adjustment screw as it moves around and the trigger becomes very light. More lube on the Nitro Piston and the actual piston itself. I would not have taken it apart if not for the grinding. It might have gone away as it seem to be happening less after around 300 pellets.

    What others should know:

    1st once received, breech rubbed against stock causing scratches in metal. RMA, next one received, still rubbed at end of stroke, ended up using dremel to sand of .15" off inside slot (fixed it). Noticed grinding noise that would come and go while cocking. Liked how it shot, so I gave it a tune. Discovered that the piston was galling the top inside of piston tube. The area the piston seal slides in was perfect. The rest of the insides were good. Polished the area to remove galling, lubed with molly and then reassembled. Now that it has been tuned, it is very nice. I like the trigger (after adjustment). I like everything about it now.

    Things I liked:

    Very quiet, and I have a good deal of arthritis, but I am able to break the barrel sitting down with no problem. Very well balanced for shooting with or without a tri-pod. Only took around 75 rounds to break it in, which I did in my basement. After breaking it in. I wiped out a dime inside of a quarter target at 35'. But I almost left out the most important thing, IT'S PUT TOGETHER IN THE GOOD OLD USA. Spend the extra money and get a good quality weapon.

    Things I would have changed:

    Only one thing, get a GRB trigger from charliedatuna.com, and try it before you adjust it, as you probably won't have to do a thing to it. It will get a little taking getting used to as you are going from a rather hard pull to a hair trigger. I tried to adjust the factory trigger, and the second stage they talk about just isn't there. So my suggestion is when you order the weapon from Pyramyd Air, order you trigger from Charlie the same day. Reason being is Charlie doesn't take credit cards. You have to send him a money order before he sends the trigger

    What others should know:

    After the breakin period, and trying several different grains of pellets, I have settled on the H&N 8.64 field target pellets. I took it out to my shooting area, and started at 100'. Got it sighted in, and went to 125' and 150' with only adjusting the scope, no windage or elevation adjustment. When I went to 175' I had to raise the elevation 6 clicks, and of course adjust the scope. When I went to 200' I had to raise the elevation 6 clicks,and did some minor scope adjustments. During this shooting period I had a 15 mph cross wind, and did not make any windage adjustments. Also from 150' to 200' the scope needs to be on 9. At 200' I was shooting 80% into a 2" bulls eye. Great weapon, spend the money, because if you by Chinese cheap, you will be sending it back. And as far as warranty issues, nobody beats Pyramyd Air. Steve from USA

    Things I liked:

    I guess I was lucky with my rifle based on other reviews, because my NPSS is everything I was expecting, and has not let me down yet. After careful consideration, and many weeks of lusting over the Benjamin Marauder, I felt that the cost of entering into the world of PCPs was just not worth it. Sure, it would be nice to not have to break the barrel every time I load a pellet, but it is very hard to justify the expense to not have to. In the end, my NPSS kills rabbits just as well; with .177 pellets, I might add.. My yard is just like a Roach Motel; they can enter, but they can't leave. I should add that I am a former Marine, and have the benefit of quality marksmanship instruction, and a firm reliance on the "One Shot, One Kill" school of thought. I also do not think that the scope that comes with this rifle is garbage. On the contrary, I have been quite pleased with the scope's performance.

    Things I would have changed:

    It is not as quiet as Paul Capello's Decibel meter indicated. However, as a former Marine, I also adhere to the "Swift, Silent, and Deadly" way of thinking, so my neighbors are none the wiser. For all they know, I dropped something metallic in my garage. My NPSS is a phantom that will never be seen.

    What others should know:

    Although you don't know me from Adam's housecat, I recommend this air rifle based on my positive experience with it. I chose to go with the .177 caliber based on price and availability of pellets. This has proven to be adequate for rabbits and prairie dogs, as well as skunks.

    Things I liked:

    Nitro Piston technology is quiet, powerful and accurate. Folks at Pyramid are great! If you don't like the gun they send you, return and/or get another. They are courteous and very helpful.

    Things I would have changed:

    I was not impressed with the all weather gun stock of the NPSS. I ended up exchanging it for the Benji Trail NP and thought the quality was a lot better. So much for spending the extra to buy made in the USA….I tried.

    What others should know:

    The quality of the NPSS stock was comparable to a plastic toy gun, you could visibly see the seams of the plastic. I have a G1 extreme and the Benji NP and both seem to have a better quality gun stock. I also purchased a Wally World benjamin wood stock Nitro Piston, very accurate and quiet.

    I like the looks and feel of the gun. Especially the thumbhole stock. It’s low sound level and easy cooking.

    Things I would have changed:

    Make the stock a little bit lighter.

    What others should know:

    For the accuracy of this rifle is terrible. I’ve fired over 200 rounds through this rifle and I can’t get a shout grouping under 2” at 20 yards using sand bags. I even tried a different scope off my 22 rifle and no change. Which I know is accurate. The scope even move back on the rings. You have to tighten the ring screws tight without stripping the threads. I’ve sent this rifle back for a refund. Pyramyd Air Services was great.

    Things I liked:

    This is my second air gun. It is a solid well made, in the USA, gun. I would recommend buying this Nitro Piston to anyone. It comes equiped with probably the best packaged scope on airguns. I had no problem mounting the scope. Cocking effort is smooth and not difficult at all. Low recoil compared to springers. Quiet. Customer service at Pyramyd Air is great.

    Things I would have changed:

    The trigger is not good but probably acceptable for most people. I changed it and put a CRB trigger and that made all the difference in the world.

    What others should know:

    The NPSS is very quiet but not silent. The accuracy is very good but you get an occasional flyer. You could change just the trigger spring that comes with the original trigger to lighten the trigger pull and you wouldn't need to change out the whole trigger with the CRB trigger.
