So…I bought this Benjamin Regal NP rifle (.22 cal) from my buddy today for $100.
The Rifle is a BIG 5 gun. (Big5 is a sorting goods chain in 12 Western states).
My Buddy originally payed over $200 for this gun. Apparently, he took some FLAK for buying this gun from some Yayhoos on some other forum. They convinced him it was a cheap immitation and that he should buy a “Real” air gun. He recently bought himself an RWS 48,,,,,and now he thinks he is an air gun Elitist, all of a sudden. Lol.
Anyway,,,,I can find virtually no info for this gun. Crosman shows an Owners manual for the .177 cal version, but no Parts breakdown. There is nothing for the .22 version.
I am not overly familiar with Crosman/Benjamin rifles, but it looks to me like it is a B@$tard version of the Trail NP XL 1000…..Or maybe the Remington NPSS….The stock is less fancy and the scope is even a step below the Trail NP’s,,,,It Has a Dovetail rail for scopes rather than the weaver rail that most new Benjis are sporting. It has a shrouded barrel that looks the same as the Trail NP and the Remington. The rear end of the Breech is rounded, like the Remington……
I am hoping that this gun has a standard Crosman trigger array, that can be replaced with a GRT –III, because that’s the only issue I have with this gun. The trigger feels like it pulls Forever and I cant tell the first stage from the second. Otherwise it shoots nicely, it is fairly accurate and it shoots 14.5 gr Crosman Premium pellets pretty hard.. I haven’t chrony’d the gun yet but I’d be surprised if its less than 800 fps…..
Any help with this gun will be appreciated…..Thanks.
