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.

The last 2 Air Rifles I bought were a RWS 34 Walther Varmint. Both of these are spring piston and both more expensive than NP2. I received it today. Put a UTG 3-9×40 scope on it and was pleased a few clicks shooting at about 10 yards to begin with and it was grouping very tight right out of the box. Was able to get about 50 shots through it tonight. Very Impressed ! I bought the .177 and it has fantastic power. At that range I was shooting through 3/4 inch wafer board and had to put a piece of aluminum “strep tread” . even after going through the wood it was putting dents in the step tread. I first shot a few light pellets through it and it sounded like a 22. I then went to the Crossman Premier Domed 10.5 which is a winner so far. I don’t think you will find a better Air Gun for the money. ( can buy 3 of these to 1 of the Walther’s) Very pleased so far.
Buy it. Enjoy it. 5 stars

Broke on 1st shot. Barrel shroud slid 4″ forward breaking the front barrel shroud piece off.
Great buy and far more accurate than reviews claimed

I read reviews that claim this is a scattergun and cannot shot small groups. After learning how to hold a springer the groups settled in to excellent. The more I shoot it the better it becomes. Accurate and fast. Very useful for small critters.
Nitro Piston technology is awesome!
Really awesome pellet rifle for a great price from Amazon. Crosman is awesome for support too. The first time I shot it the tip of the baffle broke off. I read online where the same happened to someone else and they emailed and crosman sent them a free replacement. I emailed and they sent me two baffles plus two o-rings, so I now have a spare in case it happens again, but the replacement has held up nicely. Evidently the baffle breaking is a known issue. Amazing kill power for a pellet rifle. It is a bit too powerful for backyard plinking unless you trust the shooter not to miss. I would hate for a stray pellet to get loose from this thing. It is just a bit less powerful than a .22 caliber that shoots bullets propelled by gun powder. Ammunition is cheap with this gun.

Hard to believe how far pellet rifles have come. The inert gas piston system is pleasant to the ear and the smack of 900fps on target is impressive. With a heavy pellet it will stay quiet, but you’ll get a crack similar to a 22 short with the alloy pellets. I never cared for the sound of the typical spring action of a starter level break barrel. Very comfortable and surprisingly accurate out of the box. Given some of the other reviews about shimming the scope and ammo experiences, I never figured it would print 1.5 inch groups at 30 yards before the first box was thru. I’ve put maybe 100 rounds thru it ( my son doesn’t count shots ). Very impressed.
Very good but could be better

I give this pellet rifle a 4 star rating because it’s a very good gun for the money but it could be better. First off the gun shoots very well. Even with less than 500 rounds through it, it is shooting just slightly larger than quarter sized groups at 20 yards with 14.3 grain Crosman Premier domed pellets. The recoil is no worse than most high powered pellet rifles I have fired but it does take a little getting used to as the recoil is actually directed forward. The balance of the rifle is great considering how long the barrel is. It does seem a bit on the hefty side but is not unmanageable by any means. The trigger is a two stage trigger which I like but it does take a bit to get used to the long travel of the first stage. The trigger pull is actually better than I was expecting and for a pellet rifle in this price range I’m not sure you can expect any better. The safety is nice being located directly in front of the trigger allowing a very intuitive operation. However it does not automatically reset like most pellet rifles I have shot, which for me seems fine but for some users could be a negative. As for the fit and finish of the rifle this is where I think things could be done better. The stock and all other synthetic parts of the rifle have some clear mold marks some of which are somewhat sharp. I was able to use some 320 grit sand paper to smooth the edges but I don’t feel I should have to do this for the price I’m paying for this rifle. Also the logos on the side of the rifle are a somewhat cheesy looking laser etched job, where I think engraving would have looked much more professional. Now for the only really poor feature of this package, the scope is clearly the cheapest option they could find to toss in as a combo. It seems to be holding zero for now but it is not a quality scope and the glass is downright awful. Anything above 6X magnification and things start to become blurry and no amount of adjustment seems to fix this issue. I don’t know why with so many bad reviews on the scope they don’t start offering an option to buy the rifle without the scope as most users will want to toss the scope and find a better one anyway. In my opinion this is a very good rifle that with a few minor adjustments could be a great rifle.
