Built in America! Benefits of the Nitro Piston over a metal mainspring:

  • Smoother cocking
  • Smoother shooting
  • No spring torque
  • No spring fatigue, even if left cocked for hours
  • Functions perfectly in cold weather
  • Lasts longer than a metal spring

Keep the power and lose the noise with the Benjamin Ironhide SBD! This rough and ready gas-piston is sure to become a favored gun to dispatch pests and drop cans, bottles and targets. An ideal shooter for the backyard, the Ironhide includes an improved Silenced Barrel Device (SBD) to keep your shots 3x quieter than other breakbarrels in its class. 

Starting with the rugged synthetic stock, the Ironhide lives up to its name with a weather resistant finish for shooting in less than ideal conditions.  Set into the stock is the newly upgraded Nitro Piston Elite powerplant, a gas-piston designed to provide the shooter with forceful shots that deliver 15% more speed, 35% more power, and 2x the accuracy of standard gas pistons.  This improved power system translates to up to 23 FPE in .177 caliber and 29 FPE of muzzle energy in .22.  With a pull of the 2-stage adjustable CBT trigger, send your rounds downrange lightning fast at speeds between and 950 and 1,400 fps!  

For those that love shooting their airguns immediately, the Ironhide includes a front post sight and adjustable rear sight to put shots on target straight out of the box.  If you prefer your targets nice and close, mount up the included CenterPoint 4x32 scope to its 11mm Dovetail rail. In a winning feature not to be outdone, the Ironhide is made right here in the USA in Bloomfield, New York!

If you want an all-weather shooter that keeps the shots high-powered and quiet, choose the Ironhide for hours of plinking fun.

Things I liked: It's accurate with the open sights, just put a little white out on the front blade because they aren't fiber optic. It's powerful 21.5 - 23.5 ft-lbs depending on the pellet. It's quiet, I've been shooting it indoors.

Things I would have changed: The scope. The optics were fine for a cheap CenterPoint 4x32. Unfortunately the crosshairs starting spinning counterclockwise on the third shoot. The scope was junk after just 3 pellets.

What others should know: It is not built in the US, it's made in China. The Nitro Piston Elite is the same thing as the NP2. The owner's manual lists FPS for the NP2 and the NP Elite and they are the same. This gun is just a cheaper Chinese version of the US NP2s. I have a Trail NP2 and I like this gun more simply because the pistol grip is better designed with a better angle and they moved it back a bit. This is not a great gun but you aren't going to beat it's power and accuracy for $150. Just remember to purchase a scope when you buy it to replace the one that comes with the gun.

  • Ronald from USA asked:

    Has anyone at PA ever shot this rifle? Im very interested in purchasing one but need a review.

    • John from USA:

      It's a NP2 platform. This gun is made in China not the USA. It's quiet like all Crosman products with Sound Supression. JSB 18.13 went 743.3 fps = 22.2 ft-lbs. H&N 21.14 went 676.5 = 21.5 ft-lbs. Open sights are good. They are not fiber optic. I put white out on the front blade it's now easy to see and the gun is accurate. Just got it so I'm still breaking it in and haven't scoped it yet. Not a bad rifle for $150. I like this stock better than the Trail NP2. The pistol grip is further back so my finger is just the right distance from the trigger.

    • Tyler from USA:

      I have yet to shoot one, but it appears to be very similar to the NP2 SBD just with a slightly different suppressor

  • Paul from USA asked:

    What is the cocking effort?

    • John from USA:

      35.5 lbs. I actually measured it.

    • Tyler from USA:

      Around 40 lbs
