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: Feels more plasticy than my non shrouded NP2
Things I would have changed: Redesign the Shroud or use better materials? Even the marauder shroud better than this. Like previous comments could not group at all so tried putting better scopes and trying various pellets to no avail. Read comments here and started grouping without shroud.
What others should know: Something wrong in the shroud design. Manufacturer should be contacted.
Things I liked: accuracy potential, read my full review to understand ease of cocking scope base fairly quiet, but not as quiet as an MROD
Things I would have changed: trigger is not to my liking, very stiff trigger pull
What others should know: My rifle as delivered shoots 8 to 12 inch groups at 20 yards, with as many different brands and weights of pellets that I could put through it. After a lot of frustration with changing scopes, and rings several times, I discovered the real problem. Removed the shroud that covers the SBD silencing baffles and it shoots 1/4" groups at 20 yards. Appears that the shroud puts pressure on the somewhat flexible baffles and causes the pellet to strike the baffles just enough to cause the accuracy problem. I have contacted the manufacturer to find out the fix or what they will do to correct the issue.

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.
Can the SBD (Silencing Barrel Device) be retrofit to an earlier NP2?
The device appears to be modular and may simply thread onto the old NP2 barrel, but it could also be the barrel is different and maybe the plastic is bonded to it. Either way I'm certain the barrel assy can be swapped between the two. Hopefully someone who buys it will post what they find. See my re: above about what you can do to a current NP2.
