    This is a nice gun, the problem is the sights and the trigger.
    Lets hope Crosman fixes these problems. Those who own this
    gun know what I am taking about. For now I plan on getting rid
    of the sights and using a red dot scope.

    Take off the cocking aid and put it somewhere you'll never see again. Clean the gun. Remove rear sight. Save for later projects. Put a red dot on. Zero. You now have a 10 yard bird feeder protector to keep by the kitchen window to knock sparrows and starlings out cold. Can you go further than ten yards. Sure. But i'm not annie oakley so im not attempting a low probability head shot. Just because it is a nuisance/pest animal doesn't mean they don't deserve humane kills. Humane equals lights out immediately kids. Not hey go get a rock I think its still breathing. quieter than my 1377 and some of my farts.
    Just enough power for my needs. Quiet enough for neighbors not to really notice a shot or two every now and then. Very indoor basement shooting range friendly. All in all a pretty nifty little pistol.

    It's not bad...

    By John from Greece

    2014-09-11 09:27:19
    I use it for about 6 mounths... one for sure, you NEED a red dot... but after that you don't have any problem with that gun about shoting and having fun. The most big problem for me is the hard trigger.
    After that you get:
    1. a gun that realy shot again and again for lot of years
    2. it has enouph power, not for pesting, this is NOT a gun for hunting for me but it's great for targeting
    3. the quality for the price is good
    4. it's great fun, you have great time with it
    5. not strong recoil

    Aceptable...

    By Deorfal

    2014-08-07 15:50:50
    Despues de disparar 20 diabolos encontre que agrupa abajo a 12 metros. La mira trasera no da mas para subir el tiro, por el tornillo de mira. Lo cambie el tornillo por uno mas largo, dispare 30 diabolos y subio; agrupa mejor cerca del 10, pero apuntando al centro centro centro y no un tanto abajo, como recomienda el catalogo. Me gustaria saber que mira de punto rojo es apta esta pistola y como retirar la mira delantera para mejor operacion. Definivamente la mira de la pistola es una debilidad. El gatillo, en general, funciona bien, pero, eventualmente, funciona solo hasta el final de su recorrido, no se a que se deba.

    Good design, but bad aiming- убогое прицеливание.

    By Felix Kubin

    2014-07-27 20:38:57
    i can`t say for sure, will I buy if know what is it really like.
    Same as the most of consumers, I cannot aiming,
    The rear sign needs to be placed even over the target.
    i want to get some optic and than try.
    now its not easy to say how i find this gun.
    Поставлю целеуказатель тогда смогу сказать хорош ган или нет.
    пока не разобрался, но мощность выстрела ожидал больше.

    Benjamin Trail NP

    By Nuclearcal

    2014-07-26 17:35:13
    Shoots good groups but about 10"low. No adjustment left in rear sight. Installed a red dot sight and have not been able to adjust enough to make the gun hit at point of aim.......still shooting 3-4 inches low.

    Any suggestions would be appreciated. I know the red dot sight is good. This is wasting a lot of my time.

    Just started shooting air pistols and rifles again. Bought the Benjamin with no prior knowledge of the gun. Got a red dot at the same time as my old eyes are not that good any more. Must say thank god for the internet or I would have taken it back. I didn't know about the shooting low problem as I put the red dot on right out of the box. The trigger was my biggest complaint even with oil and adjusting the trigger it was still a pain to pull. I would tell anyone to remove the screw and replace it with one that is 1/8 to 1/4 inch longer makes a hell of a difference on the length and smoothness of the pull. All in all not a bad pistol about 100 shots through it and I am shooting quarter size groups at 20 yards.

    Awesome addition to any air gun collection

    By triggerhappy

    I have just put mine through the break in period. There are a fe. w things I would change and have. I have lowered the front sight, and polished the trigger. Improving the accuracy greatly. I found no need to remove the cocking assist I just leave it on all the time. I have been using Crosman wadcutters exclusively and they seem 30 to have great knockdown power. At 30 feet cant miss cans, the rocker target trap however provided quite a challenge with its quarter and dime size targets. I will say this break barrel is highly addictive. I also have a Benjamin BP22 which has now been made obsolete. I highly recommend this break barrel to anyone with a backyard and the need to improve there shooting habits and skills.

    a couple of quick fixes

    By drron

    2014-06-10 18:10:14
    right of of the box , take the rear sight of and replace it with a red dot scope. the cocking assist is perfect if you use it in the right way.i found that taking it off and putting it back on tiring. my final solution, turn it around backwards. it gives you an extra 3" of cocking leverage and is very easy to put on and remove. stick it in your back pocket for easy storage and lock it back on the barrel for easy storage.this is possible the best air pistol I have ever owned at far below the advertised price.

    Rear sight

    By Tony

    2014-06-01 14:29:33
    Got mine a few days ago. 2" groups at 15 yards all day with Crosman premier hollow points. Pretty good with a variety of other pellets also. Haven't shot too much over 20 yards to determine accuracy at that distance...yet. Only complaint, both sights are much higher on the barrel/ receiver than need be and the rear sight is pretty "cheap." I like to sight in "lolly popped" and the elevation screw is about 1 1/2 turns from coming all the way out. Also, when I received the pistol, I had to "tweak" the rear sight. What I mean is, it was not level. I had to remove the elevation screw and bend the sight to the left so that it would be level. Replace the rear sight with one of a bit more quality and lower both (front and rear). Would I recommend this gun? Yes!

    Understanding This Pistol

    By Steve B.

    2014-05-29 01:49:36
    Read as much as I could about this before purchasing my first pellet gun. My eyes aren't as good, so typicl front and rear sights are useless to me, but confirmed issues brought up re the rear sight, the difference in impact using the cocking aid and the need for a break in peorid. I eliminated use of the cocking aid, took the front site to the band saw and carefully cut down the fiber optic sight. Installed a quality 1x red dot, a barrel clamp and a short tapco grip on an angle, giving me something to hold on to up front. Sure the trigger has some travel to it, but i'm also a target archer and a long range coyote killer and learning trigger control is the key to accuracy. It's almost 2 stage in a sense, because there is a degree of travel that comes to a soft wall that must be carefully and cleanly pulled while focusing on what your aiming at. Besides it looking cool, I've run about 2000 rounds in 3 weeks and have been punching the center out of 6" peel and stick targets that a dime could cover at 10 to 13 yards. I'm a 60 year old kid, who must have the latest in technology and the nitro piston was the selling factor for me, that and a well done you tube video that I watched. I put a drop of the recomended oil, every 200 rounds, down the piston and one on the hinge joints and barrel lock. I'm lovin this plinker and I think you will too, if you are realistic with your expactations and are willing to take the time to understand and learn the trigger and the control needed to make good shots, you can't help but get better with practice. This is well worth the money, cocks easily and is accurate when used without the cocking aid.

    horrible

    By Scott B

    2014-05-15 20:01:46
    I bought this pellet pistol to humane dispatch the critters raiding my garden. After setting up targets a 15, 25, 50 feet i saw i didnt hit one target. The guns rear sight does not go down far enough; or the front sight is too tall. either way, after compensating the pathetic sights; i shot at the critters in my garden. momma critter ran away like it got stung by a bee.

    How you still use the cocking aid AND not shoot low......

    By Mike

    2014-05-10 17:54:53
    Simple. Don't fit it as per instructions.
    Take the cocking aid and place the muzzle end over the pistol muzzle. it's a pretty good fit and plastic to plastic so you won't wear the barrel.
    Cock as normal then toss the cocking aid to one side. Shoot with the standard iron sights and enjoy being able to actually hit the target!!
    Although I had a red dot sight fitted to overcome the standard sights aiming low issue, I could not acheive any form of accurcy or consistency. I took the cocking aid off and certainly my fairly shabby groups became less shabby.
    Why use a rag etc as some advocate? The cocking aid fitted in reverse is great.
    Trigger was still pretty rubbish. Stripped it, cleaned it and put some moly on, much smoother now and more predictable.
    Liking this pistol alot more now. Just a bit barrel heavy and some anatomic handed grips would be nice.

    By Extremely Disappointed

    2014-04-27 11:39:45
    Forget the trigger and the sights. I can almost expect that from an $80.00 air pistol. What there is no excuse for is the fact that I am unable to humanely dispatch a small squirrel sized rat at 15 feet! Yes, I said 15 FEET! The rats that I didn't run away injured just jumped, shook off the hit for a few seconds and returned to eating. I realize that these are rats, but there is no excuse for this.

    Not bad if you know what you are buying

    By Mike

    2014-04-24 14:43:37
    I bought this after a long break from air rifles. I was raised exclusively on English and German air rifles but also have a Turkish budget air rifle so am reviewing objectively.
    Firstly the build quality. Absolutely fine. Mine was all tight. The breech and break are well fitting. The sights appealed to me for their adjustability and 'looked' quality but more of them later.... The barrel is nicely rifled and for the money it's a well made pistol. I like the modern synthetic handles/stocks. No more wood to worry about!
    Taking note of the instructions I made a point of breaking the pistol in before worrying too much about that low zero. As mentioned the gun does get easy to cock and I find it has a really fast and smooth cycle. I also use the cocking aid exclusively and its a doddle to cock now.
    The gas ram is this pistols main appeal, it is quiet and smooth, no spring twang. The report is very quiet and ideal for garden plinking. The power is ideal in .177 for killing tin cans and targets. Not sure I would recomend it for pest control. Surely a rifle and scope is more humane?
    Now we get to the crux of it, accuracy. The reported low shooting is true and it's obvious Crosman tested this pistol without the cocking aid. The instructions need changing to make this fact clear.
    I have overcome this by fitting a Crosman red dot sight.
    The trigger is as mentioned fairly heavy. It's getting better with use though and is not terrible. Better than a Hatsan budget trigger unit.
    The balance feels a bit barrel heavy to me. I would have prefered the handle to be mounted a bit more forward to accomodate this.
    Would I buy another? For the smoothness of it's cycle and solid build yes. But Crosman need to address the sights and trigger.

    Sighting

    By Old Hunter

    2014-04-13 04:48:46
    Did you test pre production model? If so the Chinese changed something. The sights are ridiculous. Try to zero in and rear has to be all the way up and to the left to hit a target at 25 feet. It is almost like you assumed the rear would be thrown away and a red dot put on. Not true. You should design a useful rear sight and send one to every person that buys this pistol. I visited your place in Rogers in 62 when I was stationed at Fort Chaffee. Things must have changed quality wise.

    Hard trigger large "dead" route and poor quality plastic.
    From then on it being fairly quiet and with a red dot sight quite apposite.
    Overall 4 stars from me, I am quite satisfied and even in relation to its cost.

    Beats pumping a bunch of times

    By 67Ragtop

    2014-02-01 20:26:40
    Yes it shoots low. Screw came out before it got on target. Red dot scope takes care of that. Cocks easy enough with the assist on it. Probably could get by with out it. I have just left it there since getting it. If I counted right, 200 shots through it since yesterday when I got it. I really think I'm gonna like this one. Right up there with my 1377 and 1322 but much less pumping.

    Good pistol/ Don't rush to judgement

    By Will

    2014-01-25 17:16:31
    Kudos to Crosman for making the jump to fitting a nitro piston to a small profile operating system. Before purchasing I read several reviews most of which contained some negativity to one or more aspect of this pistol but I was intrigued by the innovation of a nitro piston in a small airgun platform.and ordered one. My background in the Military and Law Enforcement over the years enabled me to fire just about every shoulder and hand held weapon made and most took some time to identify strong and weak points. With that in mind I performed a detailed break in and self testing of the BBP77. First I went over the pistol and found the screws attaching the receiver to the stock were all loose which was fixed easily with a drop of loc-tite blue on not more than two threads and re-tighten. Based on reviews before the first shot was fired I thoroughly cleaned the barrel which took half an hour to reach my standard of a clean bore. Then I removed the rear sight and was pleasantly surprised that Benjamin had the foresight to mount these in the scope grooves milled in the receiver giving me some options of placement of a red dot optic that has a 3 MOA dot. (The primary use for this pistol is rat hunting in my chicken barn so all my air handguns get a red dot for humane shooting)

    Although Benjamin states that normal breaking is around 250 shots I elected to shoot 500 for a thorough eval. Ammunition used throughout the eval. was Crosman single die premium wad cutters at a range of 10 meters. All shooting was done from a sandbag bench rest for control purposes. It took about 20 shots to achieve an acceptable POA to POI . Once done I began break in and evaluation. First noted was heavy and long trigger pull resulting in numerous flyers. At about 50 shots I began to notice the trigger smoothing somewhat and right before discharge there began to develop an over center sensation on my trigger finger. After feeling this sensation the pistol consistently discharged with another 1/4 inch of pull which I was able to measure at 2 pounds vs. initial starting trigger pull at 6.75 lbs. I think we have a two stage trigger here. The more I shot it the more familiar I taught myself to use this over center sensation to my advantage and the flyers immediately ceased. The more I shot the pistol the smoother the trigger felt which I believe was result and of moving parts of the trigger mechanism wearing in.

    By shot # 75 I began to notice grouping tightening up to about one inch. By shot # 100 I noticed cocking becoming easier. Based on reviews I opted not to utilize the cocking assist but found that without it the.front sight was a little painful on my palm while cocking. The solution was simple. Grab a cleaning rag out of my kit and cover the front sight with it while cocking. No more discomfort. Using the cleaning rag to aid cocking is an insignificant inconvenience and one of these can be kept in the pistol carrying case.

    Between shots 75 and 250 all that happened was the pistol demonstrating a visible and palpable response to break in. Shot groups tightened down to about the size of a dime, cocking became easier and my familiarity with the heavy initial trigger pull transitioning the over center sensation became better.

    I continued on until a full 500 shots were discharged during which time I carefully adjusted the optic until I was shooting groups measuring about 1/4 inch from 10 meters.

    This morning I put the pistol to the test and dispatched three rats with three shots. Range varied from 15 to 20 feet and all were humane instantly fatal head shots.

    In summary, don't believe everything you read about this pistol. Yes it's heavy, Yes it's big and yes it has a heavy and long initial trigger pull than Benjamin should deal with for their customers. Don't expect immediate out of the box wonder weapon status but give it a thorough bore cleaning, properly break the pistol in and find that over center spot on the trigger pull and you will have an enjoyable virtually silent, recoilless and accurate pistol ( provided you put decent optics on it) that should give you loads of shooting pleasure.
    Is it perfect? No. Can you learn it's idiosyncrasies and have some fun? Absolutely.

    Sorry for the long winded post but I believed the pistol was one in which new ground was broken (nitro piston in a pistol) and it deserved a fair unbiased evaluation.

    Benjamin, if you read these posts there and two things you could to to improve this pistol: 1) refine that trigger. 6.75 pounds is way too much for a .177 cal anything ; 2) develop and market this shooting platform in a .22 caliber version. I would purchase one in a heartbeat.

    Thank you for your time.

    low shooter

    By Anonymous

    2014-01-07 21:31:51
    I purchased this gun to try, even though most reviews have said it shoots low and doesn't have enough adjustment in the rear sight to compensate.
    Well guess what happened, it shoots low. I was shooting only about 15' aiming at the top of my target and hitting about 6"low with rear sight as high as could be adjusted.
    I noticed that when I shot the barrel would drop slightly. After noticing this I decided to tighten the hinge screw, I only tightened it to the next notch in the screw head.
    I shot it again today and had to adjust the rear sight down, probably about half way or a little more to get it back on target. It looks like that fixed the shooting low problem.
    If you're having the same problem then you may want to give it a try.
    I also do not use the cocking helper either, I lubed all the linkages and it cocks easy enough for me.
    I didn't like the cocking helper rubbing the bluing off the barrel.
    Anyway hope this helps someone.

    Trail NP Pistol BBP77

    By Slim

    2013-11-22 00:23:14
    After years of pumping and shooting the great 1377 air pistol I just had to give this baby a try. Besides, my 71 year old arms just are not what they used to be. I find that the Trail NP is not difficult to cock using the cocking assist accessory and I can (and do) shoot it for hours. The trigger and accuracy have greatly improved during the break in period. Some reviewers have complained about the height of the front and rear sights. Frankly I don't understand why they are so high but I do not find it to be a problem. I have owned and shot a large number of firearms over the years and this pistol is definitely a keeper. I have a heavy steel "bullet box" I shoot into in the basement or garage when the weather is just too cold and wet outside to have any fun target shooting. This pistol is quiet and I plan on spending a good deal of time target shooting with this baby during the cold winter months while the rest of the family watches endless reruns on TV. By spring I should be a better shot and this pistol should be well broken in with the only low cost ammunition left on the market. I consider the cost of this pistol money well spent.

    I just purchased my Trail NP and love it. I have had no problem with the cocking assist being left on as it shoots very straight and accurate. Its nice to not have to feed CO2 cans into it all the time. No more expense of doing that. Great gun and no problem getting the sights aligned. Very fun to shoot.

    2013-11-05 19:15:37
    i picked mine up at walmart almost past it by after reading many negitive reviews most complaing about sights and shooting low. the first one i got shot a ft low out of the box with the sights up all the way .took that one back and got another one. the 2nd one was allright at first but after about 75 pieces of lead it begain to shoot low .i inspected the breech before it was shot and after noticed it was opening up not much maybe .01 to .03 of an inch. that was a simple fix stretched the spring on the catch about a 1/4 of an inch also noticed the gun seemed dry .oiled the chaimber and other moving parts now it shooting great rear sights are turned almost to the bottom and it may be shooting a tad bit high now. just do those two miner things and u will alsi be a proud owner of an excellent pellet pistol

    Trail NP pistol is a let down

    By Disappointed

    2013-10-06 18:54:03
    I was excited to step into the gas piston air guns. I was looking forward to shooting the latest technology in my garage on rainy days. Although the sites look awesome, they are not capable of allowing you to shoot the pistol as the directions state. Out of the box it shot 10" below the Point of Aim (POA). After adjusting the elevation screw to the maximum height, it was within four inches. Unfortunately, the elevation screw was so high it popped out of the sight so I couldn't shoot it at all. Crosman sent me an new rear sight. I set it all the way back so the rear was out of the dovetail. The sight sat at a downward slope. This got me within two inches of POA. After I was within a couple of inches of the bulls eye, I set up some aluminum cans. I had to have the POA at the top of the can so the Point of Impact (POI) would be at the bottom of the can. Another problem, on some shots the pellet would not penetrated the pop can! I fanally had enough of this and took it back to WalMart.

    If you buy this plan on spending another $50 on a red dot sight so you can use it. If you are handy you could chop the front sight down or raise the rear sight a quarter of an inch. It was fun to shoot but very frustrating trying to become accurate with it.

    Nice pistol almost

    By Barryp

    2013-10-04 12:26:01
    This is my first nitro piston. Great looking piece The Dirty Harry of pellet pistols! I hate to sound like a "me too" but As the other reviewers have said, The trigger stinks. Long ,rough and heavy. I now have about 250 pellets through it and the trigger is still long rough and heavy. Rear sight is probably the worst application I've encountered in over 50 years of shooting. After adjusting it up all the way It almost was on target at 10 yards when the vibration of a shot unscrewed it the last fraction and off popped the screw into the weeds. I've found a screw that kinda works. Crossman you have to address this issue! Or at the least suggest a red dot that you have evaluated. and offer as an upgrade.

    Second Bad One

    By Mark

    2013-09-25 11:07:47
    First one I got lasted a few hundred rounds. Then it started to fire as soon as the barrel was closed. Without pulling the trigger! VERY DANGEROUS. Then it stopped firing completely. Was able to return for a new one. The second one has again lasted only a couple hundred rounds. This one suddenly had such a loss of power the pellets were getting stuck in the barrel. When it would fire the pellet wouldn't even go through a piece of cardboard. Can't return this one to where I bought it (passed 30 days). Going to try to get it repaired. Also like some of the other reviews you can't adjust the rear sight high enough.

    Poor quality control

    By Wimpod

    2013-09-04 11:28:57
    Well, I was really looking forward to getting this air pistol to add to my RWS and Beeman collection. I was very disappointed when I couldn't figure out where in the world the pellet was hitting, found it hitting about a foot low and velocity didn't seem right. So I performed the old kleenex trick over the breech and upon firing the kleenex blow away as in a stiff breeze. Looks like I got a bad breech seal. Hann't had time to call Crosman and ask for a replacement, thought about taking it back to Academy and getting another one but hate to shell game a bad gun. Fit and finish is very nice though. Rear site is pretty cheap and I won't even consider shooting with the cocking aid on as with my Brownings, affects impact.

    Trail Break Barrel Pistol

    By Raidertex

    2013-07-21 10:58:38
    I liked the way the gun looked out of the box; however, when I started sighting the gun in I really started doubting if I would keep the gun or not. As everyone has stated the gun sights were terrible and probably less than adequate for target shooting. The other problem was the horrendous trigger. Its very hard to target shoot with a gun, when you have to not only strain but pull for seemingly ever before the trigger breaks. I installed a new trigger adjustment screw that was 2mm longer. The trigger travel was much shorter and had a nice crisp break. The safety was still functioning properly with the longer screw. After installing the screw I was able to shoot much smaller groups at 10M. I then put a Center Point tactical panoramic site on the gun and was then target shooting with accuracy. The guns accuracy is very consistent and predictable. I have decided now to keep the gun and enjoy shooting it!

    Benjamin Trail NP Break Barrel Pistol

    By Rob in Thailand

    2013-06-29 04:09:24
    I'm extremely impressed. Had this a week now and all it needs is a couple of work-arounds.
    The first thing is to remove the rear sights, sling them in the bin and mount a nice little red dot scope. That takes care of the shooting low problem and the cocking assist seems to make no difference either.

    Then the vile trigger. Take a close look inside. There is just the right amount of size, and it's just the right shape, to slip a thin rectangular steel shim between the trigger and the sprung pivot pin it's in contact with. No need to fix this in place - the rectangular shim can't move about as it fits the rectangular housing, and it's also under constant pressure from the spring, which holds it neatly in place.

    The only other thing it seems to affect is the adjustment of the first stage of the trigger: winding out the adjustment screw too far to lessen the trigger travel has the effect of locking the trigger (as if the safety was on). Other than that there is now much less travel before the trigger snaps in - a vast improvement.

    I've fired 30 or 40 pellets like this and it takes a little getting used to. But then it's just great! Excellent and powerful little gun and built like a tank!

    Front Sight Cured; Trigger not!

    By Lance

    2013-05-19 22:15:46
    I finally fixed the problem with the sighting of this pistol; I ground down the front sight and turned it into a regular non-illuminated post. I reduced the height of the front sight by more than 3/8 of an inch.

    The trigger pull, however is horrendous. One owner claimed to have greased the sear, but that is generally not advisable for most arms. I will definitely be checking into a replacement trigger as this thing is exceedingly inaccurate with the degree of pull weight required.

    Once the trigger issue is resolved, with the sight issue under control by some creative grinding, this will prove to be a serviceable unit, I believe.

    Crosman needs to consider a fix for this pistol. I cannot recommend this to anyone until the sight and trigger issues are positively resolved...

    Trail NP Break Barrel Pistol (.177)

    By Anonymous

    2013-05-08 19:03:48
    The Trail NP Break Barrel Pistol (.177) is an average pistol air gun, after the break-in piont (250 rounds) it became consistant and predictable.
    The pistol's craftsman-ship is next to excellent; however,it shoots low which can be very frusterating,at 140 rounds I had the iron sites cranked
    all the way up and it still shot low. I installed the center piont, open view red dot sight , and the same thing cranked all he way up (80 rounds).
    Finally, I installed the Center Piont Tactical reflex sight and once again had to crank it all the up and it shot low I used a bench rest, and the
    target was set at ten yards. The piont of impact averaged one inch below the red dot sight picture.

    Pretty Good Shooting

    By Kyle

    2013-05-06 19:59:07
    I have had this air pistol for three days and fired about 300 crosman pellets through it until today when I got a scope and shot another 100 pellets. The trigger pull on this pistol is horrible. I don't know how much it takes, but I know if I keep shooting this thing I am going to have a Popeye finger. It seemed pretty accurate, but it was really hard to tell because I know it is jerking around as I struggle to control the trigger pull. So, I ended up putting it in a vice on my bench to see how it actually shoots and shot 10 pellets through it at about 25 yards. They were all within an 3/4 of an inch group, so it is a pretty good shooting pistol. Its just that darn trigger pull. Also, I took off the cocking assist because it shoots consistently very low with it attached.

    Sights way off, otherwise good gun.

    By Anthony Cooper

    2013-05-04 00:50:05
    Bought the gun and almost returned it due to how difficult the break barrel was to break. In an act of desperation, I smacked the gun over my leg. It broke free. From that point I was able to break it in my hands. For the first few weeks, at the start of each shooting session, I'd have to break the gun over my leg to get it to open. Now it is well broken in and it is easy to break open.

    Next issue is the sights. I have the rear sight as high as it will go, but the gun still shoots low. At about 25', I would say the gun shoots 6 - 8 inches low. The sights cannot be adjusted any higher. This gun should be recalled until this is fixed. It is accurate, just low. A scope on the gun solves the problem.

    I have about 200 shots on it. Lots of power; no snap like a springer. Not as loud as I expected; this is good. Low quality factory sight, but usable. Accurate. I will go with an optic sight as soon as possible. Long trigger pull. No EVP document available.

    BBP77 Benjamin Trail NP Break Barrel Pistol

    By Egay California

    2013-04-29 22:43:28
    So disappointed with the trigger pull. Trigger is way too heavy and the trigger pull is hard and too long. The trigger pull makes the pistol inaccurate because the muzzle tends to move either sidewards or downwards before you can fully squeeze the trigger. This trigger issue strip the pistol of the fun and thrill of target shooting because you are anticipating that you will not hit the target 100%, the pellet goes all over the place.
    Good looking pistol, I give it a 5 Star. My airgun buddies enthusiasts do admire the look too, but no good comments about the trigger pull.
    The rear sight moves back, must have something to do with the screw, this is a big issue also.
    My shooting enthusiast buddies lost interest of owning one of these pistols saying.

    By Steve

    Love the pistol, but trigger pull is a little long and heavy my gauge said 7 lbs. The price for this type of pistol is wonderful. I did return mine only because I could not adjust the sight to shoot high enough. Hope they will come out with a fix. Maybe a lower front sight?

    I would recommend this pistol if I could get it to shoot higher.

    Benjamin Pistol delivers well for price!

    By Patrick S

    2013-04-25 15:57:56
    What to like about Benjamin NP: Action and receiver are mounted tightly, sturdy sights, less recoil, less noise and it comes with cocking assist. Accuracy is good within 25 yards: It can hit small game and aluminum cans all day. Price is excellent considering how calm it is when you pull the trigger.

    Improvements Benjamin NP pistol could use: Lighter smoother trigger, make and assemble in USA, make cocking assist easier to take on/off, make .22 version, use rivets instead of screws to hold in action or use loctite blue on existing screws to avert them from loosening.

    Final Opinion: if you wish to purchase a piston powered pellet pistol of any type I recommend considering the NP pistol, It is calmer in firing than some high end spring pistols and definitely cheaper ones such as Ruger Mk.1. It is a solid design despite being Chinese manufactured. I recommend if you desire this type of air gun. It takes about 50 pellets to break in then trigger gets smoother in operation. Get one and try it out!

    Junk!!!

    By mudduck48

    2013-04-13 22:41:15
    There is 4 main things about this gun that make it Junk. 1. the rear sight., The rear sight moves when you shoot the gun. No mater how much you try to tighten the screw, it will move. I have the rear sight up as far as it will go and it still shoots 1" low with Crosman pellets. 2; the front sight. The front sight is Duck poop. The barrel does not go all the way out to the end of the plastic sight and that makes pellets shoot all over the place. 3 The trigger. The trigger is WAY to heavy. And 4; the cocking assist. With the cock assist in place you will shoot 2" to 4" low. I wish I had never waisted my money on this thing. DO NOT BUY, YOU WILL BE WAISTING YOUR MONEY!!!!!!!!! Buy a 2240 and you will have a better gun to shoot.

    TRIGGER PULL

    By JERRY

    2013-04-12 10:58:27
    I was lucky enough to get one of the first 100. Was suprised at 3#7oz weight. Had thought about 3#. Trigger ajustment is a joke. Pull is very hard and to long. Hard to judge when it's gonna shoot. Rear sight is very wide and hard to see when on target. Gonna go with scope.

    Needs some Improvement

    By KLD

    2013-04-08 15:25:01
    The trigger takeup on mine is long and the pull is very heavy. I tried the trigger adjustment screw, but have been unable to turn it (for fear of stripping screw head) because it is so tight. The pistol shoots low even with rear sight adjusted all the way out (up). I have not not tried the cocking assist. Since I have only fired about 50 rounds, I am hoping for improvement after break in.

    Nice Gun

    By gvan

    2013-04-04 10:32:35
    I agree with the previous posters regarding the fit and finish of this gun. Also the cocking assist is a detriment to accuracy. I've shot around 200 rounds with mixed results on accuracy..probably need more trigger time for that. However from time to time I experience what I would call a misfire. Then gun makes a dull thump and I have no indication the pellet makes it to the target however the barrel is cleared. I wonder if any else has experienced this. Seems to do it more often when I use a rest.

    Out of the box

    By Gull

    2013-04-04 05:51:48
    Got my trail April 2nd 2013, one of the first 100 sold.

    Good looking gun, solid build.

    It is heavy and not very balanced, but not much different than springer pistols.

    Have shot about 50 rounds, it is pretty accurate, I like open sights, I like the fiber optic setup. Seems like
    the front sight blade is a little big but I am getting use to it.

    The cocking assist does effect how the pellet travels! The gun shots better with the assist off.
    It really is a big difference. You can cock the gun without the assist, but if you are shooting many shots you will
    want to use it. I will probably whittle around on mine so it is a little easier to install and remove. It may just
    loosen up with use overtime and I won't have to do anything, it is not difficult to do as is.

    I wish the safety was auto.

    After waiting so long for this gun to finally come to market I had hoped I would like it more. It is a fine gun, just
    not my cup of tea I suppose. I will keep it but it will never be my favorite. I do like it better than any springer pistol
    I have shot or owned in the past.

    If you like a springer pistol, I think you will love this gun.

    Great pistol !!!.....minus the cocking assist.

    By Richie

    2013-04-03 22:40:44
    I have to say I'am pretty happy with the pistol. Its a bit heavy, but feels nice in hand. I wish the trigger was a little better. Supposedly it is adjustable, but I haven't messed with it yet.
    Make sure you shoot with the cocking assist DE-TACHED!! My pistol was shooting very low and grouping horrible with that piece attached to the muzzle. My first impression of the pistol was very disappointing because of this. I took the assist off and was shooting pellets into the same 1" hole at 25' consistently. I wish Crosman would have figured this out and mentioned it to the customers.

    Pro's....Nice fit and finish, nice sights that are easily adjusted, good power, accurate, dovetail groove.
    Cons...bit heavy, wish it had single stage trigger, pistol is horribly inaccurate with cocking assist attached.

    All in all I am very happy with the pistol!

    I have to say this is a well done product from Crosman, very accurate.
    The only thing I dont Like about this gun is too Big, yeah this is the Big gun,
    way bigger than Crosman 1377, from the picture thats the size I was expecting.
    other than size I have no problem. Give it 4 stars!

    very nice gun shoots very good only problem is the cocking assist when left on the gun causes it to shoot low without it it`s right on would be nice to have the safety to auto lock when the barrel is opened like other break barrel pistols all in all it`s a very fine gun so far need to fine out more after break in

    The Fun Has Begun!

    By BikeandHike

    2013-04-02 14:00:23
    I just received one of the first one hundred and I can now say it was well worth the wait! I have only put 25 rounds through it. Ten with open sights and 15 so far with my pistol scope mounted and the gun is getting more and more accurate with every shot. Overall quality of the pistol is one of the best if not the best. This gun so far does not disappoint but keeps getting better and better with every shot. Way to go Crosman!!!
