Here are the benefits of a Crosman Nitro Piston:
Need a go-to critter gitter? This just might become your favorite hunting rifle! With a Crosman Nitro Piston, the powerplant of your breakbarrel rifle will last many thousands of shots and reliably perform no matter how cold, hot, humid or dry it is outside.
The Benjamin Varmint Power Pack air rifle will reliably perform and hit its mark -- and do it quieter than what you'd expect from a similar magnum spring-piston air gun.
The gas piston has taken the airgunning world by storm because it's a proven technology that gives shooters much more leeway. If you like smoother-shooting guns and guns that don't experience spring fatigue because you left the gun cocked while waiting for the next critter to cross your path, then a gas piston should be your powerplant of choice.

Things I liked: I ordered this rifle for my adult son after considering many others. He wanted one for exactly what this rifle is designed for - critters around his wooded house at night. We like the solid lock up and lack of barrel droop. We replaced the scope with a better one my father gave him, and did quite a bit of shooting. His best five shot group was .87 inches center to center at 20 yards. Other groups were wider. He was not happy with the accuracy until I fired a group and it came in at .90 inches at 20 yards. The hold, even on a bench is critical. The laser and flash light work great! The rifle is a nice weight, and is quiet to shoot. The Crossman pellets that came with it clocked in at 748 FPS average a few feet from the muzzle. I compared this rifle to my RWS Diana in .177 and found it has 7% less energy out of the muzzle. Not bad when you consider the price difference. We were both pleased with how quickly the trigger smoothed out and how effective the reach adjustment was.
Things I would have changed: More power!!! Of course!
What others should know: The scope will get you started, but you may want something a bit clearer.
Things I liked: The trigger is nice and light, with a long but smooth pull to a clean break. The safety covers the trigger which is nice while out beating around the woods.
Things I would have changed: Sling mounts. Option for bipod.
What others should know: This thing does very well with .22 Crosman 14.3 grain Piranhas, beating out my .177 Umarex Fuel for accuracy beyond 30 yards. I put H&N 14.9 grain Sniper Magnums in it and it does GREAT! We're out past 40 yards now with a consistent 2-3 inch pattern. We also installed a bipod from a Nerf gun on it, and it does very well. Paint it black and it looks fine.
Things I liked: Construction is solid...that's about it.
Things I would have changed: The trigger. So much travel but what should I expect for $170.
What others should know: I bought this to keep in closet by the door for quick access when the catbirds are eating my blueberries. Unfortunately, even with a variety of pellets, I have not been able to zero this rifle. Overall, a waste money for me at least. In the future, I will spend the extra money for an RWS.

How far can a rabbit or other animals of that size be hunted?
That depends on how far you can hold a consistent 1" group. That's about the average size of the kill zone on most small game.
Do you need a p.a.l card to buy this gun
This one produces 950FPS. I believe Canada is limited to 500 FPS. only?
can this kill a raccoon with a headshot with a 14.3 grain dome?
