Benjamin Titan™ NP (.22)
great little gun.
im 14, and have been hunting with shotguns since i was 7. i never missed a squirrel/rabbit season yet. but last june i had surgery on my tailbone, and by the time squirrel season came along, i was almost completely healed, but my dad said he wasn't going to take me hunting this season. devastated, i chose to buy a new air gun so i can hunt in the woods by my house by myself and with one of my long time friends. bought this at academy for $150 in october, only because it was a .22 caliber that advertised 900 fps. next 2 days i sighted it in at about 10 yards with the included scope. first hunt i went on by myself, i shot my very first rabbit (i use benjamin discovery hunting hallow points 14.3 grain lead pellets) i hit him center mass, because i did not feel confident for a head shot. the shot was at 15 yards. after he got shot in the rib area, he crawled away, so i ran up to him (he was trying to hide in a bush on the side of the trail, and he was howling in pain) i did the responsible thing and finished him off with a point blank headshot. brought him home proud and upset. i was upset because i wounded him before he died, and because my dad was at work so he couldnt see my first rabbit kill. in honor of family tradition and respect for the fallen rabbit, i smeared his blood under my eyes. stayed out for about an hour and a half at night with mosquitoes tearing me up, so i could clean my first rabbit, which was also the first time i cleaned my own kill.
since then, i killed 2 more rabbits (one was about the length of the barrel of the gun!!!) and 4 squirrels all at about 15 yards.
only complaints i have about this gun are: the trigger sucks, but i can get half inch groupings with the included scope at 15 yards, plus i might get the charlie da tuna grt3 trigger soon. i replaced the scope with a leapers 3-9x40 AO MD IR scope for about $90 for christmas. took out a sparrow on an electrical wire at about 30 yards, and a squirrel or two from about 20 yards or so. only wish i had this scope when i first got the gun. have it sighted in at about 15 yards, and it is truly a tack driver.
i also have to complain about the power of this gun. i shoot rabbits in center mass (about the front near the legs, where the heart is) and squirrels have all been shot in the head (except for one, because he was in a neighbors in his nest, and i couldnt see him too good so i shot the only piece i saw of him, which happened to be his back leg, then i let my friend finish it with a headshot while it was hanging out of the nest), but every rabbit i shot, and a couple squirrels that have holes through their heads from my pellet dont die unless i follow up with a point blank headshot. i know im not using a trail, or a high powered .25 cal pcp, but i would expect more power from a .22 at 20 yards with headshots. but all in all, its a great gun that gets you hunting small game for a reasonably cheap price (with the scope i bought, it was $230 or 240 total) and the upgrade trigger will be about $35. i made another youtube video stating how to install the charlie da tuna grt3 trigger (verbally) and how to oil the gun for proper performance) scope review will be coming up in the next week. subscribe to my channel for further updates.
Groups started out in the 4 to 5 inch range, and its taken a couple hundred shots to break in and get groups down to just under an inch @ 25 yards. Again though a decent trigger should help out here.
When ordering be sure to get a tube of silicone lube from crosman also, as there is none in the box. My copy was dry with alot of spring twang, and a bit of lube as outlined in the manual fixed that peroblem in a hurry.
The scope is so so, but in the long run plan on replacing it. paralax is bad on mine and cant be tuned out totally.
A better scope, and definately a better trigger, even if it raised the price some would definately get it 5 stars from me.
It gets better
Scopewise i can live with this one for a while. so far it seems to hold zero well, and i like the mil-dot.
The manual states around 100 shots may be needed for breakin, though i found it to be closer to 200. Groups were ranging in the 3 to 4 inch range at 25 yds. All of a sudden groups shrunk to about an inch and have been consistant so far, Though here's where the better trigger would help. Current trigger is around 5 lbs and creepy, not at all predictable. A good 2 lb trigger that breaks cleanly, would tighten up groups considerably.
When ordering be sure to add a tube of the silicone chamber oil also. The rifle comes without any included lube and in my copy was very dry with alot of spring twang. One drop as per the manual and it quieted down noticabily.

My shooting background consists of shooting a Remington VLS 22-250 caliber with hand loaded ammunition. I have killed 100s of hours at the shooting bench, 2 deer at 225 yards and 100yards with it. This rifle is capable of an average group size of .235” groups of 5 shots for 5 separate targets. All from a bench rest
Also I own and shoot a Remington PSS in 308 calibers, capable of the same accuracy. I have been shooting shotguns, pistols and rifles for some 50 years. I also have in by arsenal several other firearms. My initial learning curve came with a Daisy Red Rider BB gun. I have owned two of these in my early years and my children gave me another one for Christmas this year.
I am not a country boy any more. If I were I would be out in my barn yard shooting flies of the meadows muffins with a 12 gauge shotgun or a 50 cal. Barrett. I have been urbanized!! This brings me to this review.
About a week ago I purchased a Benjamin Titan NP in 22 caliber. I am pleased with the looks of the rifle and the Nitro Piston technology, and also the price was reasonable. The advertisement stated that it is 72% quitter than the springer guns in its category, thus lending itself to an urban environment. I have no experience with an air rifle, so I cannot verify the difference in loudness. After about 30 shot fired through the rifle it sounds similar to a pneumatic framing nail gun. According to the ads it should get quieter later. I am aware of the 100 shot break-in period.
I purchased a tin of inexpensive Daisy pellets with the intensions of using them for the break-in period. I fired a few pellets just to see what the rifle would sound like. The sound was no louder than the afore mentioned pneumatic hammer. I later decided to fire a few more rounds to find where the cross hairs were located. After several rounds the cross hairs were located and a few adjustments were made to bring them closer to the point of aim. At 10 meters the rifle was shooting very near the proper elevation and about 2 inch to the right. All in all, I had fired some 25 rounds through the rifle.
Now it is time to clean the barrel, which should have been the first thing I did. I secured my Otters 22 cal. cleaning kit and began the job of swabbing out the bore. I used the nitro solvent on the first two pushes through the barrel. OMG!! There was a mess of black stuff that came out of the barrel looking akin to Black Powder fowling. HMMM this is a pellet rifle isn’t it. Many more patches through the bore and after about an hour the barrel was clean. I did clean from the breach end of the barrel which meant when I closed the barrel it was cocked. Not knowing when my next shooting session would be, I load a pellet into the chamber and went outside and fired it. The sound had diminished slightly!
The next session with the rifle, I fired two shot with the crosshairs center on the target. My sights had moved to the left about 1 inch and the elevation had stayed, but the shots were in virtually the same hole. Ok. It is time for the math. The click adjustments are 1 Click is ¼” at 100 yds., 1/8” at 50 yds., 1/16” at 25 yds., and about 1/32” at 10 meters. So, I have to make a 32 Click adjustment at 10 meters. Shots 3 and 4 were dead on, again in the same hole. I was elated. Shot 5 was ¼” high. I allowed this to be excitement, not a fault of pellets or sight adjustment.
This rifle is very powerful. It is capable of sending a pellet 250-300+ yards down range. All fire arms safety rules apply to this weapon as well. You should be sure of your target, know what is down range, never fire the weapon at an unknown target. And for Heavens sake never point the weapon, whether loaded or unloaded, at a person.
Now, thing I don’t understand about the rifle. The mounting scope grove is advertised to be 11 mm. The rifle cones with a 4x32 scope and rings. If you pay attention to details you will find the mounting rings to be 3/8” dovetails. It is a wee bit small to fit perfectly on the mounting grove. There will be a small space between the locking plate and the body of the ring. The rings will tighten up, but this could be a source of scope error. This is just my thoughts.
Over all, I believe the rifle meets or exceeds all advertising claims. It is capable of being a very accurate pest and varmint eliminator, plus a very fun rifle to shoot.

Benjamin Titan NP Review
Bottom line. Great purchase with no regrets.
Benjamin titan gp
Will recommend to every serious small game hunter or target shooter, Real powerful , NOT FOR KIDS.
Nitro Piston for PENNIES.....
Benjamin air rifle
Crossman pump pellet gun, carried it all over the woods in upstate NY, had to pump it 10x to get enough power.
Now got a Benjamin break open Regal NP, what a difference, one pump and it's ready to kill and that's what I got it for-squirrels in the bird feeder, tree rats I call'em.
Rifle is accurate and more powerful than old Crossman, still have 50 yr. old Crossman pellets and they shoot fine but new rounded point ones are better.
Great rifle for the price.
I recently acquired the Benjamin Titan GP from Wally-world to eliminate some pesky squirrels that were molesting my bird feeder. I had considered Gamo's but didn't like the price tag. I am an avid shooter and hunter have owned many different air rifles over the years. While making my decission on purchasing a new air rifle I researched the web (youtube) and watched all the reviews and this rifle stood out to me as a good value and adequate for the task. The thumbhole stock is very comfortable to hold and helps to add to the weight of this rifle. It is heavy, which aids in accuracy. The Nitro Piston has a very short and fast stroke and there is very little recoil. I recomend that you become very familiar with the artillery grip as this rifle's accuracy increases as your front hand gets closer to the trigger mech. It takes very little effort to break the barrel over and cock the rifle.
After unpacking this rifle and purchasing a Leapers New Gen 3x9x32 CQB scope with ilum., mildot recticle (#SCP-M392AOLWQ) from amazon along with the UTG rail adapter I had a pretty accurate squirrel denial platform. I sighted the rifle in at 35 yards and using the Crossman Premier .22 hollow point pellets managed to get 6.0mm sized groups consistantly.
I have zapped many squirrels with this air rifle out to 75 yards using the mildot recticle to adjust for windage and elevation. I have found that 75 yards is pushing it for this particular air rifle. My rifle loves the Crossman Premier hollow points and the Beeman Kodiak heavy pellets, @75yrds I can average a .75" group consistantly. As for the Preditor Poly mags save your money. Their skirts do not fit snug in the chamber and accuracy suffers because the skirts don't expand enough to grab the rifling well. I do not own a chronograph but there are plenty of chrony tests on youtube on this rifle with different mnfg pellets to satisfy someone who is a stats buff.
In closing this review I would like to say that Crossman has built a very nice, inexpensive air gun in the Titan GP .22 air rifle. They could have made it even better had they included pre installed sling studs on the butt and hand guard. My next purchase will be a Marauder (.25) PCP rifle.
I would have to Rate this rifle 4 3/4 stars. I would have rated it a solid 5 star's if it had the sling mounts pre installed.
