Prostaffer Chip Hunnicutt recommends a break barrel gun for its simple use and the fact it is always ready to go:
 
"I keep the Trail NP XL 1100 .22 by my back door where it's handy at a moment's notice. I've got a couple birdfeeders in the backyard and this rifle is great for keeping them clean of squirrels during the season. 
 
The Nitro Piston powerplant has changed everything for break barrels: easier to cock, less noise and less recoil.  And while speed thrills, it's foot pounds of energy that kills and the Trail NP XL delivers 28 ft-lbs of it, plenty for rabbits and such.  
 
The Trail makes hitting the woods as easy as grabbing the gun and a handful of pellets.  It doesn't get any better than that."
 

The Squirrel Sweeper includes:

- Benjamin Trail XL 1100 .22 caliber air rifle
- 1000 rounds of Benjamin Domed 14.3gr pellets
- Varmint Targets
Chip Hunnicutt has pursued a wide variety of fish and game and used this experience to develop two iPhone apps for scoring trophy animals. He tweets for Crosman as @crosmancorp and manages the company's Facebook Page.
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.

Chinese Junk ! !

By Todd A.

First, let me say that I am not a novice to shooting, hunting, or sighting-in weapons. I have been doing these things since I was about 8 yrs. old and now I'm real close to 50
I bought this package about a month ago and I am very disappointed in this rifle/scope combo., and here are the reasons:
1) The trigger on the rifle is the worst that I have ever felt on any kind of weapon, it feels like you are pulling a 40 lb. weight, and the supposed adjustment for the "2nd stage" does absolutely nothing. When the weapon actually fires, you are applying so much pull force to the trigger that it actually moves the gun.
2) I have shot approx. 150 rounds thru it and the accuracy is improving (hitting approx. 5 shots within silver dollar at 20 yds, if you want to call that accuracy) but the scope provided with this package is horrible. The directions given tell you to sight it in at 10 yds., well I have done that and now I only have about 1/4" elevation-up adjustment left. I tried in at 20 yds. and with the elevation-up maxed out it is still about 1 " low. The scope mounts are constantly working loose, about every 10 shots you have to tighten them.
3) Crossman products used to be made in the USA, the one I got says Made in China on the rifle and the scope.
This is supposedly Crossman's "top-of -the -line" break-barrel air rifle... if it is I would hate to see their middle of low end models. This will be the last Crossman product that I will be buying.

Okay, before I was just happy with the Benjamin XL, now the Customer Service has come through really well. Thank you Kim Y. That just made me want to give more business to you. And I am converting others to the pellet side of shooting.

Great rifle, ...customer service...?

By Mark W

I bought the squirrel sweeper package as it seemed like a great deal. With the 800 pellets, but no strap, makes a good deal. The rifle is great. The trigger, finish and performance are better than I expected. What irritated me was the box came opened, but taped shut again. The box label had a sticker that clearly showed, "Limited edition Benjamin" sling included. Not in the box. When I called customer service, she stated it was just a promotion. But when I told her, it was advertised on the box, she knew it should have been included. So I was told I would be sent one, if they found one in the warehouse. After a week, I think I shouldn't expect it. Wish I had known this before as I could have purchased from a local dealer that included the strap, not the pellets. I would have given 5 stars but customer service is also important. As it's not advertised to include the sling on this site, I don't hold it against them, it's an irritation like being cutoff in traffic. I got over it but wanted to bring it to attention.

Lastly, my opinion on the rifle is very positive. It is a very powerful gun. Almost a .22 rimfire gun. As I see empty ammo shelves everywhere I go, I am enjoying picking up low cost pellets. I don't plan on using as a defense gun, but as for practise and small game hunting, Yes.

Overall I recommend this gun.

Very nice gun

This is a very nice pellet gun I have and top of the line Barrel brake gun but this has to be the best. I have had it for only 2 week and only put 200 shots through it and I am groping them in a 1 in circle at about 40 yards. If you want to get a powerful airgun for hunting get this.

excellent rifle, extreme power

By rabbit sniper

I love this rifle its very powerful, it shot a clean hole through one inch solid wood, more than enough to put down jack rabbits, cotton tale, or squrriels, when i shot a squrriel about 30 yards away it did a clean penetratiom from one side of ribs and out the other. I think with all that money you spend on this gun they should have provided a better scope. but planning on moving to .357 next. and for around the house crosman 2250XT is the pistol to go.
