Crosman has introduced a new NP2, gas ram-powered model – the Benjamin Mayhem NP2 air rifle.
The Benjamin Mayhem NP2 air rifle has a single-shot, break barrel action and features two of the company’s latest technological improvements, SBD and CBT. The List Price is $339.99, and it’s already available online at lower prices.
SBT – Silencing Barrel Device – is a sound suppression system that’s unusually not uniformly centered around the barre. This shape allows fired open front sights to be fitted more conveniently. Crosman claims that it also provides market-leading sound suppression capabilities.
CBT – Clean Break Trigger – is an adjustable, two stage trigger.
Available in both .177 and .22 caliber, the Benjamin Mayhem NP2 air rifle is shipped with a 3-9x40AO scope and rings to fit the Picatinny mounting rail on top of the gun. The inclusion of an Adjustable Objective scope will be welcomed by many shooters. This is because it allows the scope image to be focused down to 10 yards for sharp sighting at close ranges.
There’s also fixed front and adjustable rear open sights included. The rear sights include both windage and elevation adjustment, as expected.
In .177 caliber, the Benjamin Mayhem NP2 air rifle is claimed to deliver a maximum Muzzle velocity of up to 1,400 FPS, combined with 23 Ft/Lbs of Muzzle Energy. The .22 cal version has specifications calling for a maximum of 1,100 FPS and 26 Ft/Lbs, respectively. These are the maximum muzzle velocities achieved with ally pellets.
With lead pellets, Crosman claims up to 1,150 FPS in .177 caliber and 950 FPS for the .22 caliber Benjamin Mayhem NP2 air rifle.
The Mayhem has a black, synthetic ambidextrous stock with soft touch inserts. Hunters will be pleased to find that sling mounts are fitted to this new model, making carrying in the field much easier. These sling mounts have a stud fitting at the rear and a loop fitting at the front.
