Remington Nitro Piston Short Stroke Air Rifle with Scope
Remington Air Rifle Review
If you love shooting and hunting all day long, the Remington NPSS Air Rifle is exactly what you need. This air gun brags of its “no spring torque and no spring fatigue” feature.
With this Remington Air Rifle, cocking is effortless and it’s bound to remain that way without breaking the springs even in the harsh cold weather. The air rifle’s scope is amazing. Hunters are considering this nitro piston air rifle as their choice because it’s a straight shooter.
What’s more this nitro piston air rifle has great 2-stage adjustable trigger and shrouded barrel allows this baby to quietly fire .22 cal pellets into the air, probably traveling at around 900 feet per second. And topped with the least amount of recoil, this NPSS air rifle is top of its class.
Precision in shooting is excellent with its first-rate 3-9×40 AO scope and its special carbon fiber stock and gas piston also helps reduce gun vibration while aiming for the kill.
Remington NPSS Air Rifle Benefits
It is also important to note that getting rid of rodents and other nasty backyard creatures without irritating your friendly neighbors is a strong attribute of this hunting air rifle. This means that this Remington NPSS Air Rifle will not only benefit you and your kin, but your entire neighborhood as well.
Most hunters say that fellow shooters from other backyards won’t even notice that you are out shooting, thanks to its unique design. Furthermore, you will also find its other noteworthy features beneficial, such as its ambidextrous cheek pieces that will assist different shooting positions, digital camo stock finish, breakbarrel gas piston that reduces firing vibration, and its long-lasting build.

Remington Air Rifle Recommendations
As a side note, those who are experienced with the Remington nitro piston air rifle say that the gun has a 100 round break-in period before the desired accuracy will become stable. So far, I have only tried shooting this toy for about 50 times or more but making 5 kills at a time is not that hard to execute.
Maybe after 100 rounds adjusting and properly re-sighting the scope might improve its performance. I know that this isn’t a perfect air rifle, but this is definitely a good choice for hunters, considering its price. It’s not that light compared to other air rifles but it is absolutely fine and it works perfectly for me.
I’d rather prefer a relatively heavier air gun when desiring for stability especially when there is a small amount of recoil. I also observed that the barrel portion is a little bit heavier, which makes the gun a little hard to balance at first, but with a little practice, you will get used to it perfectly. Gosh, it seems that I have already gone well-adapted to the weight imbalance because I hardly even noticed it while shooting. I would also advise you to clean your rifle often. Doing so will greatly improve the Remington’s accuracy.

Remington Air Rifle Comparison
The Remington Air Rifle is an all-in-one air gun. This nitro piston air rifle is powerful, accurate and quiet at the same time. Although the Gamo Whisper appears to be much quieter, when we are talking about spring tension endurance, the Remington is another success story. Going hunting and shooting all day is not a problem with this rifle. You can literally shoot to your heart’s content.
Comparing the Remington Air rifle to the steel spring break barrel Remington Genesis .177, the Remington NPSS is quieter. Also, it doesn’t have the same knocking power as that of the RWS 350 but it’s a pretty reliable gun that will not fail to give you results. Frankly, this is an impressive beautifully made American .22 air gun.
