Nitro Piston 2 Patent Issued To Crosman Corporation
Crosman Corporation has announced that the United States Patent and Trademark office has issued a patent for technological components used in its Nitro Piston 2 break barrel platform.
Although further details are not currently available, this Patent could refer to the Tail Guides that are said to eliminate metal-to-metal contact of the piston within the receiver. This has previously been described as “Patent pending” technology by the company.
“The Nitro Piston 2 (NP2) platform was launched at SHOT Show in 2014, landing in the top 10 of the Blue Book of Gun Values innovation roundup and has enjoyed tremendous success in the marketplace ever since,” says Vice President of Marketing and Product Development, Jennifer Lambert.
“We are extremely proud to build on Crosman’s history of innovation with the addition of this patent to our stable of proprietary intellectual property.”
The Nitro Piston 2 system has been integrated into Crosman’s domestically made Benjamin break barrel lineup. The NP2 platform will also be featured in the new 2017 lineup of air guns featuring all-new SBD (Silencing Barrel Device) technology.
SBD’s unique, integrated silencer design reduces the sound of a shot cycle and is three times quieter than standard spring action break barrels delivering the quiet power that air gun consumers have come to expect from Crosman and Benjamin products.
Crosman says that the Nitro Piston 2 system generates 15 percent more speed, 35 percent more power, reduces noise and requires up to ten pounds less cocking force compared to first generation Nitro Piston air rifles.
