Benjamin Trail NP2 Air Rifle
Benefits of the Nitro Piston 2 over a metal mainspring:
All gas springs (gas pistons, gas rams) are NOT created equal!
The Nitro Piston 2 has it all over the original Nitro Piston and almost every other gas spring on the market. Most gas springs have a reputation of being hard to cock, but the NP2 put an end to that. According to airgun writer Tom Gaylord, it's the easiest-cocking gas piston he's ever shot.
But Crosman didn't stop the improvements there. They also improved the trigger so it feels like it's been tuned! Imagine that: A factory trigger that breaks crisp and clean. It has a significantly lighter trigger-pull, not one of those so-called "lawyer" triggers that requires Herculean strength to shoot.
As long as they were making improvements, Crosman decided to make a better and more effective integral sound suppression system that really is quiet. You'll notice an immediate difference between the report from your Nitro Piston 2 air rifle and the older Nitro Piston guns or other brands.
So, let's add up what you'll get in this great package: Easy cocking, fantastic trigger and less noise. And, it's assembled in Crosman's plant in Bloomfield, New York. While that's almost everything you could ever want, there's one more thing -- and it's really important: Accuracy. When Tom Gaylord tested a Nitro Piston 2 at an industry show, he commented that he hit everything he aimed at. Isn't that what you want to do? We thought so!
The Benjamin Trail with the Nitro Piston 2 isn't a dream -- it's a dream come true. It's here for you to enjoy, to hit everything you're aiming at, and not strain with each cock and each pull of the trigger. They've put the fun back in airgunning!

Things I liked: Love having the pistol grip and integral suppressor. Fairly light and the cocking effort is nice(was 30-35lbs fresh out of the box, now is about the listed 28). The two stage trigger was spot on right out of the box so I didn't have to adjust it at all.
Things I would have changed: The scope isn't bad for breaking it in and getting it calmed down, but ultimately the stock scope could be a little better. Maybe switch to a 4-16x32 scope with adjustable objective for stock. It would be worth spending a few extra bucks on it.
What others should know: Love this gun. Even though I'm an inexperienced shooter, this has great power for the price. Great groupings(being inexperienced is about 1" at 30 yards) once it has calmed down(100-150 shots, so get a tin of inexpensive ammo from Walmart for $5-6.). $210 is a great price, but figure on another $100-150 for a good quality mildot scope and get them at the same time so you can work the scope while calming the gun down. Finally, think about your range of engagement(typically 15-20 yards) when your first sighting in. I set up at about 30 yards so anything inside that can be adjusted for on the fly. This also let's you acclimate to shot drop at the longer range. I haven't tested past 30 yards, but I'm pretty sure that that's max effective range. All in all great value, fun to ahoot, and no regrets getting this gun.
Things I liked: I have a few airguns but I wanted a lower end springer/piston gun for small game hunting. Due to cost and online reviews I decided on the NP2 Trail. I thought that it was the most value for the money. It's really easy to cock. It really is fun to shoot, I will lose time when I'm shooting it for sure. The scope is great, very good quality and outperforms the rifle! You DO NOT need a "better scope" on this gun. I put on a "better scope" but am taking it off because the original scope is working great for me on my other airgun, I hit everything I aim at dead on at 25 yards give or take. So I will use the mildots on a gun that actually has accuracy where the mildots can be effectively used.
Things I would have changed: I wouldn't have made a gun so powerful if it cant shoot under an inch groupings at 10 yards with the majority of pellets. I mean 10 yards is coming right out the barrel basically and it's doing 3+inches with some pellets, how do you expect to hit something at a 20-25 yard hunting range? The marketing is completely misleading. It should be marketed as a hard hitting plinker for the backyard or out camping instead of a hunting gun.
What others should know: Please don't rush into it. If you want a hunting gun make sure you can actually hit a squirrel in the head. I've found that in centerfire rifles you get a lot of arbitrary pricing, and a 250 dollar gun with a 400 dollar barrel will shoot just as good as a 2000 dollar gun. In airgunning there are very few exceptions but mostly the accurate guns are well known and they are popular because of that accuracy. Airgunning isn't a low cost thing. Would you rather buy a 250 dollar gun that gives you 3 or 4 inch 20 yard groups or a 450 dollar gun that you can practically cover with a quarter. Even a marketed 750fps is more deadly then a marketed 1400 fps when you can hit exactly where you are aiming with one and the other is all over the map. I don't have experience with the Umerax Octane Elite but I have seen a lot of private party reviews that state it might be a more accurate gun for the money. However, I'd recommend saving up for another one with years of proven accuracy.
Things I liked: Like the feel and seems to be pretty accurate until the scope moves. Probably shot 300 pellets and had to tighten scope 3 times.
Things I would have changed: Scope is average at best and mount/rings are very poor. Best would be to sell this air rifle separate and add a scope if can't come up with a better combo than what is included.

This air rifle from Pyramydair shows a 5 year limited warranty. I see the same gun listed at other sites such as Amazon with a ONE year limited warranty. What is it ....5 years or one Year.? This alone makes a big difference to buying one if the gun breaks down under normal use.
Crosman/Benjamin recently changed the warranty lengths on many of their guns to 5 years, the NP2 Trail is included. 5 years is correct
How this compare to Gamo whisper/swarm as far as noise?
Can someone suggest a soft case hat fits the NP2?
Plano 300 Plano 300 Series Soft Rifle... ............GOOD CHOICE
