Benjamin Trail break barrel air rifles are the first to feature the all new Nitro Piston™ 2 system featuring an upgraded powerplant and all-new, enhanced Clean Break Trigger (CBT™).

The new Trail guns shoot 15% faster and deliver more energy with double the effective shooting range of the original Trail series. All in a smoother-shooting gun with less vibration, less recoil, and up to a 10-pound reduction in cocking force.

The Benjamin Trail rifles also include an integrated sound suppression system that makes the gun quieter than ever.

And every gun is put together by American workers in our manufacturing headquarters in Bloomfield, New York.

The .22 caliber Benjamin Trail shoots up to 1100 fps (alloy) and delivers 26 foot pounds of energy (fpe). It includes a CenterPoint 3-9 x 32 mm scope. The hardwood stock features a thumbhole configuration with rubber recoil pad.

Warning!NOT A TOY. THIS AIRGUN IS RECOMMENDED FOR ADULT USE ONLY. MISUSE OR CARELESS USE MAY RESULT IN SERIOUS INJURY OR DEATH. BE CAREFUL, SHOOT SAFELY.

    I've got to say this is one of the best air rifles I've ever used. I bought this at bassproshops about 5 years ago and till this day it will kill anything you put in front of it. Best pellets cross man ammo! Scopes awesome! The hardwood oak really durable! The built it suppressor overly quit after break in 250 pellets! I shot ducks at over 160 yards and Boom one shot kill.. all I have to say is thankyou cross man for one bad**s weapon!!!!!!!

    lousy scope, gun may be accurate but very heavy and hard to cock

    By Tim

    2014-08-16 00:22:37
    Got this upon recommendation of the salesperson who said it came with an awesome scope which was anything but the truth. I have come to the conclusion after firing 300 pellets of 2 varieties that the gun may be accurate but the scope does not hold a steady zero. I haven't proven this 100% yet because I haven't spent the money to buy a new scope but here's why I came to that conclusion:
    3 or more rounds in a row may cluster a decent group, even punching 1 enlarged hole at 30 feet, but then they will open up and wander. Major scope adjustments may or may not make the point of impact change. Changing the windage also changes the elevation, and vice versa. This is compounded by the fact that there's no way to mount iron sights. So you are stuck with a POS scope unless you spend more money to buy an aftermarket one. They should have included iron sights and if they felt the need to market it with a scope, and made sure they included one on that would hold a zero. No need for a zoom power scope on a pellet gun; a fixed 4x would have been fine. This frustration leaves the user with a very negative opinion of the whole package, especially with all the energy needed to cock the thing. A small person cannot cock this gun. Also, it is heaver than high power rifles I own like a Remington 700 BDL 7mm Magnum, capable of killing an elk at 700 yards! Don't waste your money on this POS. Just buy a nice light Sheridan pump, which is one I grew up with and could print tight groups at 100 ft with iron sights or the 4x scope I bought and mounted myself. Now I'm out more money than it costs to buy a nice Ruger 10/22!

    First of all when i got it it looked really nice but did'nt take to long to find out the stock scratches so easily and the scope was trash it wont zero in. but other than that its a really good gun I've killed quite a few squirrels and chipmunks with it easily it has lots of power kills squirrels instantly very nice airgun i would recommend it just get the synthetic stock and a different scope

    np2

    By pellet hunter

    2014-08-04 08:30:47
    1st rifle scope rail fell off after 1 shot. Returned it and got another np2. 2nd one seems ok. Scope is complete trash it will hold zero but its like looking though a coke bottle. Trigger also no good I see that some people like the trigger but obviously they have never felt a good two stage trigger, it will work though. That being said after a brief break in I will say it is by far the smoothest vibration free shooting break barreled rifle I ever shot. Accuracy is outstanding 50 yard 5 shot groups around 1.25 to 1.5 if I do my part. That's with crosman premier domes 14.3gr and Benjamin hollow points 14.3gr at about 830-840 fps. Would be better if it had a good trigger. Why do they put a two stage trigger on it why not just a good 2-3 lb normal trigger if its a liability thing then how about something like a accutrigger. Crosman about lost me after the first rifle scope rail (put a decent bead on that rail crosman ) but I'm glad I got another one I just got to get at that trigger and fix it. Hope this helps

    A good rifle for the money!

    By Robert

    2014-06-23 14:45:54
    I've had my rifle for a month or so, now, and I really enjoy it. It has a nice fit and finish; everything snug and smooth. It's a bit heavy, but it comes with fittings for a shoulder strap, so that evens out, for me. I love that it has a Picatinny rail; I put a Leaper's Accushot 4-12 scope on it. The bundled scope doesn't have an adjustable objective (AO) lens, so it's not much use to me (That's why it gets 4 stars, not 5). A choice of scopes (or of no scope) would have been very much nicer. Cocking is easier than on my Benji Titan NP .177, and shooting is noticeably quieter than the Titan, so the integral "suppressor" actually works. There is some recoil to it, but the weight of the rifle absorbs a lot of that, I think. Accuracy is as good as the Titan; I'm getting one inch groups at 23 yards, using RWS Meisterkugeln 14 grain. That same pellet chronographs at 820 FPS, so I'd bet it would push a lighter pellet at the advertised speed of 900 FPS. However, that's only 20.91 ft/lbs, so I don't know where they got the 26 ft/lbs advertised muzzle energy. As it turns out, though, that is plenty of energy to take squirrels! Head shots go right through. Anyway, the best thing about this rifle is the trigger! I was leery at first, since it has a plastic housing, but after shooting it I love it! The first stage is a very light take-up, then it stops. Then, at about 1.5 to 2 pounds, with no creep at all, it breaks like a glass rod! And it still breaks exactly the same way a couple thousand shots later! I own 15 firearms and 4 airguns, and this is the best trigger of any of them. All around this rifle is worth the money.

    Early Experiences with the Benjamin Trail Nitro Piston 2

    By Gordon Buck

    2014-06-06 12:12:50
    I’m sort of a newcomer to the airgun hobby after finding that my old Crosman 1377 pistol still worked after many years of sitting in the closet. I became intrigued with the Benjamin Trail NP2 and pre-ordered one in mid-April – not expecting it until late June but it arrived a few days ago.
    The rifle was well packed and seems to work fine. I made an “unboxing” video (see YouTube http://youtu.be/uqENFX3A6eA ) which includes my fumbling around while installing the scope.

    I was surprised by
    • Louder than expected
    • More cocking effort than expected
    • Even a little recoil!
    Pros
    • Seems to work well
    • Good price
    • Seems powerful
    • Seems accurate
    Cons
    • Stock is adequate but looks cheap
    • Stock is a little short for me (am 6’-1”)
    • Scope is not illuminated and has no parallax adjustment
    • “Trigger” safety is still awkward for me.

    Some of my first shots with the NP2: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=czT35uNaT8g&list=UUM7r7ajZG5n_vjGBZNkjdMA

    Unfortunately, a few NP2 users have noticed that the "barrel" has cracks -- even before being shot the first time. On close inspection, my NP2 also has those cracks. I don't know whether mine had cracks before shooting or if the cracks developed in the process of sending perhaps 150 pellets through it.
    The cracks are at the breech end of the outer barrel (shroud) and (I think) not in the pressurized inner barrel. Although I don't think the NP2 is unsafe, mine is being returned because of concerns about the cracks spreading. This video shows where to check for cracks on the NP2:

    I have speculated that the cracks might be produced during the cocking process but I now suspect that the cracks result from excessive hoop stress where the outer barrel fits tightly over the inner barrel. If so, this could be a result of excessive nominal interference fit (design) or perhaps the tolerance ranges produce unexpectedly larger OD on the inner barrel and/or unexpectedly smaller ID on the outer barrel. Since some purchasers have reported cracks in unfired guns, hoop stress and tolerance stack-up are almost certainly the root cause. Fortunately, that would mean that all NP2 would not have the cracking problem and also that careful inspection and selective/matched assembly could prevent recurrences with the existing inventory of components. Of course, in the long run, tolerances would have to be tightened. Anyway, that's my opinion and my bet.

    I'll wait until the design has been revised before ordering a replacement NP2.
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    NOTE FROM CROSMAN: We have determined the cracked shroud cone to be a parts issue with this particular purchaser and not a result of the design..

    Benjamin Trail NP2 -- Unboxing

    By Gordon Buck

    2014-05-29 20:40:53
    I became intrigued with the Benjamin Trail NP2 and pre-ordered one in mid-April – not expecting it until late June but it arrived a few days ago.
    The rifle was well packed and seems to work fine. I made an “unboxing” video (see YouTube http://youtu.be/uqENFX3A6eA ) which includes my fumbling around while installing the scope. I’m fine tuning the scope and my own skills now.
    I was surprised by
    • Louder than expected
    • More cocking effort than expected
    • Even a little recoil!
    Pros
    • Seems to work well
    • Good price
    • Seems powerful (will test more later)
    • Seems accurate
    Cons
    • Stock is adequate and (I suppose) technically “wood” but looks cheap
    • Stock is a little short for me (am 6’-1”)
    • Scope is not illuminated and has no parallax adjustment (just a starter scope)
    • “Trigger” safety is still awkward for me.
    I like the Benjamin Trail NP2 and am glad I pre-ordered it. I’ll be looking for a nicer stock that is a little bit longer.
