Benjamin Trail NP2 w/Scope .22 Caliber & which pellets I use

What can I say but WOW!
Very good rifle once cleaned and tuned up

This is pretty good air rifle so far. It gets 4 stars because the barrel was loose, the barrel was dirty, and it took 2 cleanings and about 100 shots to settle down my groups with higher quality pellets. I’m a decent shot, and originally my shots were all over the place. I finally figured out that the barrel was loose and the barrel was dirty. I looked down it, and I did not notice the barrel being overly dirty to begin with, but after I ran a few patches down the barrel, the patches came out very dirty. So, for best results, clean your barrel before shooting. I suspect it was oiled from the factory to prevent the barrel from rusting. I used Frog Lube (sold by Amazon). I like it a lot. I also snugged the barrel up by hand. This rifle does seem to be a little bit quieter than my other (2) Nitro Venom air rifles. I like them a lot, but now that this rifle is out, I like this rifle better. I shot groups of (3) with (6) different types of pellets. See photo. There were (3) clear losers, and (3) clear winners from the group. Overall, this rifle seems to prefer the Crosman Premier Hollow Point pellets, the Crosman Premier Pointed pellets, and the Benjamin Discovery Hollow Point pellets. I personally prefer the Crosman Hollow Point pellets for overall performance and price with this rifle. I am happy that I got it on sale for about $190 on Amazon Prime. The last time I checked the price, the cheapest price I could find was about $225. I have seen this same model for sale (2) other places for over $275, so I would say I got a pretty good price, at that time, at least. I also like the 2-stage trigger. I must say this rifle does kick a little bit, believe it or not. I would guess it kicks about as much as a .410 shotgun. Benchrested, I could definitely feel the kick. I don’t absolutely love the scope, but it is OK, and the scope rings are OK. I would rather they knocked about $50 off the price and let me put my own scope and rings on this air rifle. So for now, this rifle gets 4 stars. If I could give it a 4.5 star rating, I would. I may move it to a 5 star rating later after I put a few hundred more rounds thru it. I do recommend this rifle if you can get it bought for around $225 or less. I feel $275 is a bit steep. You can get almost as good (altho older-style) air rifles for $150-$175.
Scope is not perfect, but power is it.

The scope is not perfect, so I upgraded the optics with a Sniper scope 4-16x40mm with front AO adjustment. Red/green mil-dot reticle. After zeroing, I tried a few 14.3 gr. Crossman Magnum Pellets and other 18.5 gr. and bang…. Looks WoW and hit a dime 4/5 10 and 40yds. with 7MPH winds. I will test it on the weekend for several scenarios. Power is awesome. Love the rifle look thumbhole pistol grip and the synthetic black finish.
Powerful, accurate rifle, but poor scope

The Benjamin Trail NP2 .22 cal should set the standard for pellet guns in this price range.
Worth every penny!

This thing smokes all of my older springers for power and accuracy. I have multiple air rifles including the original np in 22 and I love that rifle also but it needed love to get it where I needed it. The new np2 in. 22 thus far has been outstanding out of box. I did spend the extra coin at PA for the $10 for 10 shots to have it tested and they were getting 880ish fps. Once in my hands I tossed the crap scope and mounted my new tri color illuminated reticle 4x16x50 Sniper brand scope I got off eBay for about 80 bucks, what a mega difference in field of view and overall clarity. Now we’re ready. Keep in mind I have only had it out a couple of times and still have less than 200 shots fired. On the first trek a buddy and I took to the woods to and proceeded first get somewhat sighted in using cardboard then went on to lay out 12 ounce soda cans ranging in distance from 10 yards to 100 yards. We also had 8 ounce soda cans set between 50 and 100 yards. For giggles we bought 10 cheap lighters that we hung from tree limbs between 10 and 100 yards. I never would have imagined the outcome. I was limited in volume of shooting only by my limit in targets as I was hitting every single target with the first shot every time. We did make a tree limb bench but it was rather crude but that definitely helped with steadiness of hand. We didn’t have a chrony but I can tell you those cheap 14.3 gr cphp’s were blazing. I say this because I did not have to adjust for elevation from 20 yards out to 100 yards, at all. I just put the crosshairs on target and gently squeezed this awesome new trigger. Btw, did I mention the new trigger? Night and day with the old np. Think about that, I hit a cigarette lighter hanging from a tree branch at a hundred yards just as easily at 20 yards with the cheapest pellets from a brand new gun. Has to be mentioned that even at the furthest distances the pellets weren’t simply piercing the soda cans, they were causing them to completely explode. Simply awesome for a break barrel in any price range and hats off to crossman/benjamin on this one. This puts an American product back on the map and I like that. My friend using a high end Beeman springer hit some targets for sure as well, but he missed some too. The second outing was exactly the same as the first for both of us and I think it slightly bruised his ego because he thinks it’s him, I know it’s my gun. Now I am ready to experiment with other weight and type pellets as well as max out the effective range. I will update in the future once more testing has been achieved but the outlook is sure bright. . Buy this rifle.

First of all, I bought this air rifle to sharpen my shooting skills. For the past 20 years I’ve been shooting muzzle loaders and they are sorta like shoulder cannons. Shoot them long enough and you’ll start flinching. So I was looking for something that I could shoot in town and had some hunting functionality. I read a ton of reviews on lots of air rifles and I would like to address some of what I heard about this gun. Most of the negatives I read concerned the scope. I honestly didn’t bother with it, I slapped a Bushnell 3X12X45 on it that I had laying up in my closet. I read it was loud but to me it isn’t really any louder than my kids old Daisy BB gun. Not even close to a .22 in my opinion. I didn’t find any sharp edges on my stock as reported by others. It’s a tack driver. I’ve shot it less than 100 times and it’s been putting pellet on top of pellet at 25 yards. The trigger factory setting was a bit long on the pull for my taste but I’ve adjusted it to my liking. The only real issue I had was with the difference in velocity being advertised vs what my rifle box says. The rifle is advertised as reaching 1200 fps with alloy (.22 caliber) on all websites but the box it came in says 1100 fps. I called Crosman to inquire and was told they had changed the packaging boxes and that it will reach 1200 fps. Not that big of a deal. All in all I’m very satisfied.
excellent gun. Yep
