Things I liked: not much..... size? weight? hard to find anything I like other than appearance.
Things I would have changed: fixing clearance issue between CO2 tightening screw and the inside of the CO2 grip cover( the grip does not fit properly when CO2 installed. Poor safety, poor accuracy.
What others should know: if you purely want a toy that's semi auto, ok, but even then you can prob do better than this- accuracy is horrible even at 15', it does, however, fire reliably, also the safety mechanism is iffy, with just a little pressure, the trigger will pull through the safety and gun will fire, and safety still engaged.
Things I liked: i own this in .177 and .22 as well. These are great air rifles for the money, the nitro piston is absolutely an improvement on the spring and these have nice power and accuracy. the scope has been more than adequate for me on both, contrary to several negative reviews on the scope. the .22 is more consistently accurate than the .177 im assuming due to the additional weight of the pellet
Things I would have changed: the trigger. im not a stigler about triggers, but i have to agree with some of the negative comments as the trigger is only adequate, and has a fairly different feel between the 2 i own, once you learn exactly where the trigger breaks it's not a problem, but i have to believe Crosman could improve it without costing more.
What others should know: the .22 is the way to go here, more consistent accuracy and noticeably more muzzle/impact energy, this thing hits pretty hard. i've had no problem taking squirrels at 25' to 75 yrds. my fav pellets are the Crosman 14.3 gr domed. Lastly, i prefer the synthetic stock slightly over the wood stock, as it's more resistant to scuffs and seems to be a bit trimmer than the wood stock
