Crosman Introduces Benjamin Varmint Power Pack January 13, 2014 Crosman Corporation, New Products, Press Releases, Shot Show Twitter0Facebook0LinkedIn0 Includes 3-in-1 Optics Package and All-Weather Stock Crosman Corporation today introduced the Benjamin® Varmint Power Pack, a powerful new .22 caliber break barrel designed for varmint, pest and small predator hunting. The optics system features a riflescope, flashlight and laser for spotting game day or night, and the new gun sports an all-weather stock offering lightweight durability in the field. According to Crosman Product Manager, Linda Mosack, “Everything you need to ruthlessly eliminate squirrels, raccoons and other nuisance animals is included in the Benjamin Varmint Power Pack.” Patented Nitro Piston® technology offers up to 21 foot pounds of energy (fpe) and speeds of 950 feet per second (fps). “It’s potent out to 40 yards on rabbits and squirrels, and it’s even a good choice for turkeys out to 25 yards,” says Mosack. The three-in-one optics package included with the new Benjamin Varmint Power pack air rifle unites a CenterPoint® 4x32mm riflescope for accurate range estimation, a 90 Lumen LED flashlight and a fast acquisition laser. “Hunters, take comfort in knowing you’ll have great visibility in any light conditions,” Mosack said. The ambidextrous synthetic stock has a comfortable raised cheek piece designed to provide firm control during the shot cycle and the rifled steel barrel increases accuracy. The integrated sound suppression system enhances the sound reduction already provided by the Nitro Piston technology, and the gun is equipped with an adjustable, two-stage trigger, Picatinny mounting rail, and rubber recoil pad. “For varmint and pest control, choose the Benjamin Varmint Power Pack and see for yourself how effective it is when quiet shooting and lethal takedown power are required,” added Mosack. The new Benjamin Varmint Power Pack has an MSRP of $250 and will be available at retail in the spring of 2014. 14 Responses Phoghat January 15, 2014 Price ? Will it be available without the optics? chunnicutt January 20, 2014 $250 MSRP and available only with optics. Charles January 24, 2014 Looks like it might be what I need. On a scale of 1-10 with 10 being a break barrel .177 with no suppression, how would you rate the noise of this model and a maurader? Phil March 16, 2014 will this same gun come in .177 cal ? I sure hope so ! chunnicutt March 18, 2014 This package will only be available in .22 caliber. Josiaha March 22, 2014 Spring of 2014. Any more specific? like April? I would love to get this but as it sits the wife wants me to get my air rifle now so we can save for the baby. I want this one but unsure if ill be able to get it in time. chunnicutt March 25, 2014 May and congratulations! Josiaha March 25, 2014 OK. Thanks. Bob April 15, 2014 Can you say what day in May its coming out? chunnicutt April 17, 2014 They’ll start shipping to stores around mid-May. nunununu March 26, 2014 How many foot pounds of energy can this gun shoot up to. And how hard it is to cock. chunnicutt March 27, 2014 28 foot pounds. “How hard” is subjective but it’s about 35 pounds to cock. Josiaha March 27, 2014 Just doing more research into what .22 cal I plan on getting and wondering why the Varmint Power Pack doesn’t have the new power plant (NP2) in it? Its not a big difference in release times from the Benjamin Trail NP2. chunnicutt March 27, 2014 Two completely different lines. The VPP may get the NP2 down the road.
