BLOOMFIELD, New York — The standard for break barrel airgun performance changes today with the announcement from Crosman Corporation that new Benjamin Trail rifles featuring the groundbreaking Nitro Piston 2 powerplant and Clean Break Trigger (CBT™) technology are now shipping.

It’s the best break barrel trigger we’ve ever made.”
