Built in America! Benefits of the Nitro Piston 2 over a metal mainspring:

New from Benjamin, the Black Lightning is a streamlined gas-breakbarrel that’s as solid of a game hunter as it is a target shooter. From its sturdy stock to its powerful shots, this gun is ready to strike targets at astounding speeds.

Powered by the Nitro-Piston 2 powerplant, the Black Lightning is surprisingly easy to cock due to a centralized pivot point that makes it easy to get leverage.  Once you load up your round, you’ll be shocked by how hard this rifle slings your pellets.  Shooters can expect up to 1,400 fps with alloy pellets and 1,150 fps with lead pellets.  These speeds deliver 23 FPE to targets and make the Black Lightning ideal for target shooting and small game hunting.  Lightning never strikes twice in the same place, but your shots certainly can!  Without the vibration of a traditional spring, the Black Lightning is twice as accurate as traditional springers, a fact you can immediately put to the test with the included spinning target.  A baffled barrel keeps the Lightning’s volume turned town for backyard shooting sessions.

Each of these rifles comes with a CenterPoint 4x32 scope for quickly acquiring your target and includes integrated sling studs for attaching a sling.   With a combined weight of 7.6 lbs. scoped, the Lightning provides enough heft to create a stable platform without being a burden. The all-weather stock features soft-touch inserts for an easy comfortable grip.  Each includes the all-new enhanced 2-stage Clean Break Trigger (CBT) that breaks cleanly and predictably.  If all of this isn’t enough, this airgun is assembled by American workers in Crosman's manufacturing headquarters in Bloomfield, New York. 

If you want to turn up the voltage on your shooting sessions with a ruggedly built tack-driver, make a bolt for that buy button now!

Things I liked: The rifle is actually pretty good for the price. It was a bit louder than I though it would be. But at a listed 1400 fps and standard Crosman pellets the sound barier was easily broken and it almost sounded like a .22LR. Again the rifle is well worth the $$$ and i would recommend one for exterminating any back yard rodents if you have them. As for supreme accuracy, this does quite well at 25-30 yds with 2in groupings. There always seems to be just one pellet that wants to go astray. That could be because it's not match grade.

Things I would have changed: THE SCOPE!!!! The scope is CRAP. I cannot say it any other way. The scope could not be adjusted. I maxed the Windage and Elevation and even tried to use micro wedges. Come to find out the crappy, cheap scope, made in China (of course) was bad right out of the box. So off to Walmart to pic up a better (still cheap) Simmons or Bushnell that will do the jog of killing back yard rodents.

What others should know: To lower the decibel levels and hopefully make this 1400fps air rifle quieter I'm suggesting a much heavier pellet... say a 10-14gr pellet might help a little. But this is only if you don't want to alarm the neighbors or have them think you are shooting a .22LR in the back yard.

  • Phillip from USA asked:

    • Paul from USA asked:

      Is the " easy to cock due to a centralized pivot point that makes it easy to get leverage" something different than any of the other NP2 systems ?Also what is the cocking weight?
