Trail NP Hardwood (.22)
Piece of junk
Update to my last review.
Rifle ok, scope sucks.
Crosman sells the product as a combo -- why does the scope have to be shimmed to work? If you by a car with AC do you expect to have to modify the AC in order for it to work? This product is massed produce -- the barrel droop is going to be similar on every piece. Why not make the weaver rail parallel to the barrel? Same thing with the trigger -- if the trigger were just long, scratchy and heavy that would be one thing. But, it is different every time. Replacing the stock trigger with the GRT III essentially solves the trigger issue. If Crosman cared about it's products and customers, the trigger issue could be remedied for pennies a unit.
I paid $194 for the rifle, $33 for the trigger, $70 for a usable scope -- close to $300. The rifle is not accurate -- I have tried 10 different pellets -- every hold possible, including a bench rest -- repeatable groups are not possible. If I had know this pryer to the purchase I could have purchased a known accurate, quality product and saved my self the aggravation.
The overall quality of the product is poor -- woodworking on stock is poor (my rifle has a 1 1/4" repair on the stock next to the action that was repaired with a bubble filled epoxy -- while sanding the repair the surrounding wood was burned.) A washer was missing on one of the forward stock screws allowing the countersink to be ruined. Detail lines on stock are irregular -- being massed produced, detail lines are as sharp as prototype -- another example of Crosman's lack of concern.
Boxed Premiers are the least accurate of the 10 pellets I have tried ------- I have no reason to buy anything else from Crosman.
Got it a more than a year ago. The usual small annoyances...

I call it the match liter. I can consistently shoot the heads off of wooden matches at ten yards.
The premium Crosman ammo is good but not perfict. If you want same hole accuracy. Use a micromiter and pick only the rounds that will give you a uniform snug fit.
Clean the bore after every twenty shots. I use the silacon oil every hundred shots. Crosman only.
With litte effort I can light seven out of ten stick natches if I follow all of the above procedures.
I used the screw in the trigger housing to lighten the trigger pull to about three pounds.
I like the free play in the trigger pull. It always reminds me to use the tip of the finger and squeeze. Not jerking.
Good work Benjamin.

The first thing I did was break the barrel to cock the gun and saw shreds of the breech seal hanging off the seal. Also the machine finish on the breech face was terrible (I am a machinist in the areo space industry for 25 plus years.) After removing the seal and deburring the counter bore I replaced the seal and loaded a pellet. The trigger SUCKED. The long gritty pull made me miss the trap! Twenty five shots later I was so disgusted with the trigger that I had to make a decision, either send the gun back or fix the trigger (voiding the warranty). After taking the trigger assambly apart what I found was that (in my opinion) the trigger parts were sent out to heat treat without being deburred. There were hardend jagged edges all over the sear and mating parts making the the pull way to long and many false second stages. I cleaned up the burrs and reassambled the trigger. (the parts were almost as hard as the file) Now the adjustment screw actually did something.
Back to shooting. But can't hit sh*t. The windage is good but the elevation changes with every shot. What I found was that the barrel lock up detente was not square to the (5mm) dowel pin that was supposed to activate it. I used vise grips to rotate it (the latch not the dowel pin) ccw about 2 degrees. Now the back side of the latch hits the dowel pin flush, locks up good but now had too many shims under the breech seal. There were five shims under the seal. I removed two of them and stoned the mating faces of the breach. The surface finnish was crap.
Now it shoots kinda accurate, bout the size of a nickel at 55 feet. Five shot groups. This is the longest I can shoot at the house. After about 600 rounds the shroud around the barrel is starting to rotate. Don't know why but I an sure it has something to do with the crappy machine work on the breech block.
Wish I would have known that the Remington NPSS was made in the states! It would have been worth the extra $ to start there.

Trail NP Hardwood - A tidy little weapon.
I have to give a minus for the choice of telescopic sight bundled with it, as although the optics are fine, the lack of caps to cover the adjustment turrets is a really bad show, and the low light performance is not great as a result presumably of the relatively small objective lens. It has zoom up to an indicated 9x, but for my needs that's a bit of a waste of time. I for one would have preferred a fixed zoom scope with illuminated reticle.
The weaver rail is a very welcome addition, and the "Hardwood" stock (not sure exactly what wood it is!) is very nice to handle and operate. When brand new, cocking the rifle is a bit of a task, but that soon becomes easier. The noise at first is not impressive, but once a hundred or so pellets have been through it, it really eases up.
Once fitted with a half decent illuminated reticle scope though, this is an excellent weapon, and it really is a lot quieter than a conventional springer.
The packaging of the weapon is a bit of a worry, as it looks quite similar to that of a toy cap-gun I was given as a present for my 5th birthday (really, I still have the box for that too!) but I was really sold when I held the thing and felt how nicely balanced it is.
All said and done, a very tidy and accurate weapon with plenty of power and not a lot of noise, a great buy for a second time owner IMHO.
Needs some accessories? Look through the items we paired up with the Trail NP Hardwood (.22).
For use with break barrel and PCP airguns.Keep your rifle like new with this lubricant specially created for Crosman spring air rifles. Never use ...
