*The weight of this gun varies by as much as 12 oz. So, your gun might be heavier or lighter than the weight we show in our specifications (which is the weight of the gun only...without the scope and mount).

If you shoot a lightweight pellet so its velocity exceeds the speed of sound, it could result in your pellet breaking the sound barrier and the gun being louder than expected! The speed of sound depends on humidity, temperature and altitude. Generally speaking, it's between 1,060 fps and 1,115 fps.

Here are the benefits of the Nitro Piston:
  • Smoother cocking
  • Smoother shooting
  • No spring torque
  • No spring fatigue, even if you leave it cocked for hours
  • Functions perfectly in cold weather
  • Lasts longer than a metal spring

Things I liked: Ease of cocking, relative accuracy, super low noise.

Things I would have changed: Iron sights or fiber optics would be great, as would a nicer wood stock and better trigger. Also the design of the front sling loop makes it difficult to fit slings with shoulder pads closer to the barrel. I had to fit my sling British style, carrying the rifle with the barrel towards the ground.

What others should know: I would really like to upgrade to a Benji Trail NP2 since the trigger is supposed to be better, the accuracy, and most of all: the power. I do like my 'NP1" though.

Things I liked: easy cocking. welded on weaver base, looks of the gun,

Things I would have changed: better trigger , internal cleanup and deburring

What others should know: as good as can be expected accuracy from a gun in this price range, will do a good job of backyard pesting , Its not a $2000 target gun , but does fine out to 30 yards

  • al from USA asked:

    Iam having trouble getting this grouped at 15 yrds. All over the paper with each shot. Iam shooting premier super point .177 hunting pellets. Whts recommended for this air rifle. Cause these arnt working.

    • Chevota from USA:

      The hunting/pointed pellets aren't as good as the round nose, but I don't think that's your main problem. Typically you need to shim the scope so its angle matches the barrel. Check to be sure the parallax matches the setting. If you can check to be sure the power is good because main/breech seal leaks cause problems and power loss will show leaks. Probably all leak, but the worse they leak the bigger the problem. That pellet will break 1000fps if there are no leaks and everything is working right. I'd switch to quality pellets of ~8.4gr to 10.5gr which shoot better on avg than lighter and/or cheaper ones. The barrel may be loose, check by moving it around. The barrel may have defects so check the bore, especially at and just below the crown. They're all defective imo, the question is how bad. So look at the crown/rifling with 10+ magnification, and push a pellet thru by hand with a dowel to feel how bad it is. Often a few mm of the tip needs to be cut off, some sanding of the bore helps, sometimes only a new barrel will fix it. The trigger is terrible as you know, but very fixable for next to free, or the $30+ gold trigger. Pita I know, but if you want good to go out of the box you're looking at $400+, meaning Weihrauch or similar quality. These Trails can be really cool and fun, but usually you have to do some work to them. chevota at hotmail if you want some details on these fixes

  • Kyle from USA asked:

    Should I get this or the Stoeger atac air rifle in overall value

    • Chevota from USA:

      I'd get this Trail. The two guns look different, but they are very much the same inside. The Trail is cheaper, more versatile, more powerful, easier to work on/tune, and better looking imo.

  • Matt from USA asked:

    Does it come with a sling?

    • Dan the Man from USA:

      No, this rifle no longer comes with a free sling.
