Nitro Piston 2 Patent Issued To Crosman

The Crosman Corporation is pleased to announce that the United States Patent and Trademark office has issued a patent for technological components used in the market-leading Nitro Piston 2 break barrel platform.

“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 & 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 NP2 system has been integrated into Crosman’s premier performance, 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.

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 for superior performance.
