Went to Walmart to get pellets and saw the ridiculous sale price on this Titan NP and couldn't resist getting it. Also purchased a Ruger Blackhawk elite that was also on sale. Purchased some wad utters and was set. Wanted to see how the two compared with one being a springer and the other a NP.
Got them home and mounted the scopes, which are identical paperweights, but they'll do temporarily. Then cleaned the barrels..
The first few times the Titan is cocked, it's a bit stiff. It loosens up the more you use it. The cocking effort is substantially harder than with the Ruger.
The first shot sounded like a .22lr. Same with the Ruger. Both quieted substantially after a few shots. Both rifles are rated at 1000 fps with lead pellets. Both rifles hit hard and there isn't a clear performance advantage for either.
The triggers. The trigger on the Titan is a plastic unit with an extremely long and heavy break. The Ruger has a metal trigger with a shorter, smoother, lighter break.
At this time I've only put about 100 pellets through each. Each rifle is grouping tightly out to 20 yards. Both seem to be improving the more they are shot.
Overall I really like the Titan. I can't give it five stars because the of the trigger. Can be corrected so it's not a deal breaker.
One last thing. I have a German made springer with a nice Nikon scope sitting on top. The Titan and Ruger are more powerful and just as accurate even with the horrible scopes. Build quality can't be compared, but the performance can. For $100, you can't go wrong.
