Just got my new toy,Benjamin trail np xl1100, today. I had bought a trail np about 1 week ago and had to send it back because it was shooting 16 inches LOW at 30yards. So then i figured that i would just buy the XL1100. What a big difference in the two guns.Night and day in the power factor. Im just sighting in the scope and that only took about 4 rounds. But the best part is when i made a back stop to hold the targets, i used the metal from the case of a micro wave. Set it up at 30 yards just to sight in. Shooting cross hollow points 14 gram. well they were going right through the metal like nothing, and Flating out the pellet to about 3/8 of an inch.Seeing that they were ripping up that metal so bad , i went and got a piece of 3/4 plywood and put it against the metal back stop. It was nice to see that the pellets were all going through the plywood and most were also going through the metal back stop. I tried a gamo 16 gram and it went through the 3/4 plywood and made a huge Bulge in the metal.
I dont even think that i have shot 100 and im in constancely a 2 inch circle. But most are with in a 1 1/4 inch circle.
The triger is Much better then my friends gamo. This one seems very easy, nothing like what people talk about or like the gamo. Im still going to take it apart and work on it. I always liked a hair trigger. Im 65 now. always had guns, but never got into pellet guns.No reason to.The reason i got it was that it is quite.
I was thinking of a PCP. but this is just as strong as a Benjamin Marauder .If you look at the spec for both you will see that the distance and hitting power is about the same. The energy out the barrel and the FPS. The only diff. is how many shots you get.The Benjamin Marauder has a 10 shot clip. Yes nice, But if you run out of air ,what good are the extra shots. ha ha ha
It is heavy and dose NOT come with a sling.For the cost you would think the company would throw one in.
