I have a problem with my Benjamin Trail NP2 SBD in .22. The plastic shroud(which is bonded to the barrel) and the barrel both are loose to the breech. I can rotate them slightly by twisting it back and forth with my hand. I also have the same gun in .177 and can shoot a 3/4" 5 pellet group at 20 yards. The .22 won't do better than about 3" at the same distance. Any ideas on how to tighten this barrel/breach on the gun? I guess I could send it back to Pyramid but I hate to do that if there is a fairly simple fix to the problem.
well from the parts diagram at Crosman I would say no, the barrel looks to be pressed in and if that pressed in barrel is loose you would need a new barrel, if the shroud is loose that might be another problem that could be solved in either case I would be inclined to send it back of course if you could pull the barrel completely out a pin or grub screws could be added but why bother

... crosman generally has THE BEST customer service in the industry ... i believe they have 3 , or 5 yr warranties now... they'll probably just send you a new one , if they dont actually replace the whole barrel assembly on yours... so how'd you come out on that ordeal , marflow ?? - paul .
Well, it's a long story. I called Crosman and they said to send it in. After finding out it would cost me $45 to ship it back to them, I decided it would be just as cheap to just order a new barrel and fix it myself. I called them to order a new barrel and they could not find a part number for it. After a long while on the phone the customer service rep said she would have them find a new barrel and send it to me at no charge. Good so far. When I received the part in about 2 weeks, I was pleased to see they sent me the entire barrel, breech and action. Basically, everything but the stock, but it looked different than the original. After disassembly and further inspection I decided they must have found an old used or prototype part and sent it to me. It shot worse than the original. I then took my original barrel and breech and figured out how to disassemble them. I put some blue locktite on the barrel threads and reassembled the barrel and breech. Then I went to Lowe's and got a couple of metric set screws and put the in the top of the breech using the holes for the rear sight and securing them against the barrel. No more loose barrel. I also took the piston out of the gun, cleaned, lubed, and replaced the piston seal and the breech seal, and reassembled the gun. It now shoots better than ever and I am very happy with it. I was very unhappy with Crosman as a whole but I do know the customer service rep did the best she could. I just don't know how they can put these guns on the market without a parts diagram with part numbers available to the customer so the guns can be maintained and repaired when necessary. I felt it unreasonable for me to have to spend $45 to get a 4 month old gun repaired under warranty. Anyway, it's water under the bridge at this point.
