Things I liked: I was surprised by the power and accuracy of this pistol, I did not expect the quality and accuracy of this Benjamin! I went with this product and brand because of the excellent performance of my Benjamin Nitro Air Rifle, as it has bagged over 150+ squirrels over the past year, and I am also impressed with this product as well!

Things I would have changed: Nothing that I can see needs correction!

What others should know: When you use this Benjamin .177 pistol, you will need to be aware of its long barrel and that the sights need to be set to your vision/specs. The long barrel will tend to move around more when pressing the trigger, so also note that you can adjust the trigger pull for better "triggernometry"

Things I liked: Overall the pistol is very good, actually excellent considering the price. Even with the crappy trigger I can easily make a pop can dance from across the yard (about 60 feet). I removed the flimsy rear sight, chopped the front blade and installed an old BSA 30mm red dot I had lying around. It's now my go-to rat gun. I read how the point of impact changes with the installation of the barrel extension so I just threw it back in the box with the sights. Honestly I don't know what the fuss is all about, it's not THAT hard to cock, even without the barrel extension. I've shot more than a few springers that were MUCH stiffer. Whiners should just man-up, or remove the extension after cocking for each shot; BTW I saw a guy on teh interwebs who recommends turning the barrel extension around backwards to make it easy to don/doff, but YMMV.

Things I would have changed: The trigger sucks, but I'm hoping that it smooths-up with a few hundred more rounds, and I may just attempt a trigger job. Yeah I realize that doing so will void my warranty, but the pistol was only $80 and I've probably already voided it by chopping the front sight). If I had to do it again, I'd probably just remove the whole front sight assembly by heating it with a heat gun, but unfortunately I didn't see that particular YouTube video until after I'd put away the Dremel... sigh. There were a few sharp mold-flash lines around the trigger guard; a razor blade made quick work of them. The grip is large, but I've got large hands, so it's not too big for me. In the hand it feels like an unbalanced HK Mark 23, so if you've got small mitts, you might want to try reducing the grip size with a file or Dremel. The molded-in texture is also a bit coarse, but again nothing a file wouldn't fix (custom stippling anyone?). Oh, one other thing, .177 is nice but I do wish that it came in .22.

What others should know: Pyramid Air customer service was outstanding! I ordered a factory refurb pistol with the 10 for $10 service and they sent me a new pistol for the same price because they were out of the refurbs. I will definitely order from Pyramid Air again and would recommend them without reservation to friends and family. Sure, you might be able to save a buck or two from the "mega online retailer," but you won't get better service. Oh, as far as the Benjamin NP Trail pistol goes, I'd recommend it to anyone wanting/needing an affordable (relatively) high power pistol for plinking fun and/or whacking small verminous creatures (which are practically the same thing as far as I'm concerned). Thank you Pyramid Air, I look forward to doing business with you again.
