Nitro Piston

Hunters spend a lot of time and money to be unnoticeable in the woods.  From scent killers to the latest camouflage patterns, even baffled cough supressors!  With small game hunting, the possibility of taking a day’s bag limit should not be limited by the noise of the gun.  The Nitro Piston powerplant is your greatest asset in the woods.

Traditional break barrel air rifles utilize a coiled steel spring to deliver a pellet downrange.  Benjamin has replaced this spring with a patent-pending nitrogen (“Nitro”) -filled gas ram (“Piston”).  The difference is remarkable:

  • Smoother, easier cocking action
  • Stealth through the contribution to quietness of the bull barrel/shroud
  • Reduced damage from vibration
  • Reduced recoil
  • Increased accuracy
  • 70% less noise over the shot cycle*
  • Not affected by temperature
These are critical needs for air gun hunting and the additional ability to leave a Nitro Piston rifle cocked for extended periods with no loss of power will give you the confidence of knowing it will be ready when you are.
