I have a .22 Benjamin Trail NP(<500fps), it has never been super accurate but now it is getting wild. Printing 5-6" vertical spread x ~1.5" at 25m.,I have no reason to suspect the scope, but I may test it with another.Just wondering if the seal could cause this?

Those rifles have been known to have a barrel wobble at the hinge, check this area carefully, you may have to change the plastic washers for metal, I used brass. The wobble is difficult to detect so you will want to hold the rifle solid and measure the barrel movement, if you have a small laser pointer it helps to fasten it to the end of the barrel and check for movement at a distance such as a target. Does not take much movement to make an inch at 75 ft.

Have you checked all the screws? They come loose easily with this rifle.

Thanks for the feedback guys.
I have tightened all of the stock screws- they have come loose in the past. The barrel movement I will have to check the barrel movement-any dimensions for those washers?

I'd suspect the breech seal, or the lockup which can prevent it from sealing, but it likely has more than a couple problems so you really need to check everything. If you want I have info that will help, chevota at hotmail and I'll sent it. It's ~7M and ~100 pix that should cover everything possible and a whole lot more.

not to imply you are the sole cause ( I don't know your experience level, and I know the trail can have some accuracy issues) but make sure you are holding and shooting properly. I went through quite a learning curve when I started shooting air rifles. hold the gun EXTREMELY lightly, it is called artillery hold. please excuse me if you already know this, just trying to put in my two cents worth. Even with a highly inaccurate gun, holding the gun this was can tighten up your groupings significantly!
