Benjamin Trail NP2 SBD Air Rifle
Benefits of the Nitro Piston 2 over a metal mainspring:
Released in 2014, the Benjamin Trail NP2 quickly became one of the most popular breakbarrels on the market. With a combination of quiet shooting, easy cocking, and a good trigger, the original NP2 had a lot going for it already - but Crosman isn't finished making improvements to this airgun.
The quiet NP2 is now even quieter as the Benjamin Trail Nitro Piston 2 SBD. The SBD (Silencing Barrel Device) adds an improved barrel shroud that makes the NP2 SBD 3x quieter than other breakbarrels in its class. The asymmetric and removable shroud is specially designed to keep the silencer out of view when using a scope, and to expose the baffles, making cleaning easier than ever before!
This Trail SDB sports an all-weather textured synthetic stock with integrated sling swivels if you want to make your NP2 better equipped for field carrying. Resting atop the barrel is a Picatinny optics rail for fitting the included 3-9x32 scope for zeroing in on your prey - whether paper or pest.
The Trail NP2 SBD keeps all the features that made the original Trail NP2 a great breakbarrel. The Trail SBD takes advantage of the same Nitro Gas Piston technology; making it easy to cock, reducing vibration, and operating well in cold weather, unlike traditional spring pistons. As if all of this wasn't good enough, this airgun is assembled by American workers in Crosman's manufacturing headquarters in Bloomfield, New York!
This combination of features is ideal for shooters looking for a quiet, accurate, and easy to use breakbarrel that's ready to shred targets or dispatch any pest on your perimeter!

Things I liked: I got it for cheap. I just needed a varmint exterminator for the backyard because my Dragon Claw .50 is a bit much for rats and mice. Im surprised by how hard it hits.
Things I would have changed: Nothing.
What others should know: Good working .22. I like it.
Things I liked: Easy to cock and load. I am 200 shots into the break in period and the groups are tightening.
Things I would have changed: Scope could not move far enough to get zeroed. Scope had to be shimmed to get it close enough to adjust for zero.
What others should know: Good hard hitting gun.
Things I liked: yes very quiet, looks cool and balances well,
Things I would have changed: Front sling attachment is a finger pincher and just got in the way, typical complaints about the cheap scope that came with it. Butt stock should be an inch or 2 longer for adult use. Maybe some type of spacer adjustment for smaller and larger shooter use. Also, get rid of the front sight. Not good or bad, I couldn't measure effort, but doesn't seem to cock any easier than my other nitro pistons.
What others should know: I put a UTG scope on it, Charlie da-tuna trigger and put a few hundred rounds thru it. The gun is stacking pellets at 30 yards and consistently hitting an 8" plate at 130 yards! . Shooting Crossman premier 7.9 grain hollow points it's a very consistently 998 FPS with my chronograph. If you plan on shooting it like it comes it would be an OK kids gun or for the inexperienced. From a guy who has been shooting for 40+ years the above mentioned mods make this gun very fun to shoot and very accurate.

Does this rifle have the new elite nitro piston? On the Crosman web site shows a blue piston says its the elite np2 and the one here shows a red one labeled np2 , im sure they are both black. .just wondering whats the deal? More advertising hot air? Or really a new better nitro piston
What brand/model scope comes with this? I know its a 3-9X32 but not who makes it.
It's made in China. No ideal what company but no doubt the same that provides all the other Crosman scopes you see on any of their break barrels.
Can this barrel of this gun be purchase and used on any other Benjamin NP2 rifles
I haven't seen it but I can't imagine they altered the gun so my guess is it will fit w/o any hassle. The hard part will be getting the barrel b/c Crosman doesn't like to give out the parts list until the gun has been out for a year or more. It took ~3 years for the NP2 parts list, but it's incomplete. For example the part that needs replacing most is the main seal, which you can get using the old Legacy (circa 2003) # CRS5177-012. Trigger parts can be had from the same gun, so it's not an "all-new" trigger as they claim, which may be why they don't give those part #'s? As you can imagine selling the new barrel will hurt the sales of the new gun so they may hold onto that # and/or refuse to sell the part for a long time. On the plus side, I seriously doubt it makes the gun quieter. Notice they don't show a dB comparo to the original NP2, only guns with no suppressors at all. Good news is you can mod the original NP2 suppressor to be quieter, and no doubt quieter that this thing, if it's quieter at all. To do so just make the holes in the NP2 baffles smaller to better fit your caliber, and enlarge and smooth the two crescent passages at the rear so more air can be vented to the shroud. The baffle is plastic and easy to work with, and I suggest getting one or more to experiment on. # NP214-001 and ~$2 from Crosman. The main seal is also ~$2. The guns power plant is where most of the noise come from, and you can quiet it some as well but that's another story.
While the internals are the same, I am not sure you could swap them. I don't even know if the parts are available from Crosman. You'd want to give them a call and ask if you could even get the parts.
