Things I liked:Substantial ! Nice trigger pull that you can pre-cock, comes with 3 magazines. Nice feel. Things I would have changed:nothing What others should know:excellent Target gun especially with Raptor real gold pellets.
Things I liked:Powerful and fairly accurate. Great look, Nice rubberized hand grip. Things I would have changed:Top rail What others should know:Beware!...I've been told magazine clips not available so you must be satisfied with the one 19 round clip that comes with it!
Hopefully the manufacturer will make them available as this is a fairly new gun.
Things I liked:12 Round magazine.
4oz co2 bottle kit available.
Speed loader clip system available. and needed as 12 rounds are a pain and time consuming.
Things I would have changed:A little more power would be nice.
Shorter trigger pull. What others should know:Great little back yard plinker thats extremely accurate to 30 feet. Beyond that the lack of power becomes evident.
Things I liked:Scoped accuracy
Power of a 22
Incredible Value Things I would have changed:Stock scope
loose grips What others should know:I own three variations of this gun and can not find a better value or a gun offering more after market tune ability support.
It's not made for long range hunting so don't expect it.
Like many guns you need to run 500 rounds through it to break it in.
Stock sight is hard to dial in.
Bottom of the line stock scope is acceptable to 30 yds.
With a better scope and broken in it becomes a Fun, predictable, accurate, lightweight, good looking gun that delivers many consistent rounds per cartridge.
Things I liked:Price,
2 screws make it a break down rifle 1/2 it's size.
Modification support all over the web,
Many consistent shots per co2, etc....
Things I would have changed:Trigger pull, trigger size, plastic breach, there's plenty of minor un-necessary things I will and have changed but.. I have to emphasize they are Un-Necessary! What others should know:You won't be unhappy with this gun. Butt... if you want to be extremely happy with this gun, put a little work into it and a small amount of money and it becomes a blast, I personally have fun doing this because small changes = big improvements.
But as I said in the beginning this gun is accurate and fun out of the box. with what seems to be less break in needed than others.
Things I liked:Less than 3 cents per shot for JSB quality that are consistent and punch a nice hole in your target. Not too heavy not too light. Things I would have changed:Make up your mind JSB, what do they weigh? What others should know:Your gun might like them...mine did.
Things I liked:Really works like magic! Things I would have changed:Change?
I don't even know how it works? What others should know:If you hold your surround a clip between your index finger and thumb then pour pellets in, it does the same thing but you get pellets on the floor usually..Round headed pellets work better.
Guess it's physics not magic.
Things I liked:Having them. Extras are always nice Things I would have changed:The physics of C02. What others should know:C02 gets cold and you loose power quickly running off too many shots in a row. Extra magazines don't help.
Things I liked:Actually pretty good ballistics and stability.
Although expensive they are fun. Things I would have changed:More consistent size.
pricey! What others should know:Makes my rifle CRACK the sound barrier every time it's awsome but annoyingly loud. Sounds like a firearm.
Things I liked:Beeman quality. Things I would have changed:Nothing What others should know:Needs a lot of power or they become unstable. 800 fps rated and up. Found a few penetrating the target sideways when fired from lower powered guns.
Things I liked:Affordable and makes this gun fun. Things I would have changed:Make the nice sleeve read the same instead of one side normal and the other upside down. Also make it available separately. What others should know:If you run a bunch of magazines this too will freeze and you will loose power without a break in between.
Things I liked:Comparative value for a full Tactical pistol. More power and less money than the Nighthawk. More comparable to a T4 OPTS but with more metal and still less money.
Plenty of power and acceptable accuracy I think due in part to an actual extended barrel not just an attached compensator. Barrel is one piece 8" long not the 4.25 stated in the specs from the PT80.
Red dot works surprisingly well with a smaller than expected dot available.
Flashlight is of high quality but I could care less, although it does support the whole Tactical theme. Things I would have changed:Lighter trigger pull! (hopefully this will work it's way in and become smoother and lighter) My regular PT80 is lighter eventhough it is the same gun.
Why does Gamo give 3 mags with the less expensive gun and only 2 with this one?
Would love a cartridge system like that of the Daisy 008 or the T4. What others should know:Lets face it, Tactical pistols are mainly bling guns and made to look good and play the part. But to find one that works is a good thing. I'm sure they all do.
If all my minor complaints listed were fixed it would surely result in a more expensive gun.
At this price, with this power and accessories the included case and Gamo's name I can't complain. I have to recommend this to anyone interested in a powerful fine shooting Tactical gun.
Things I liked:Light and a work of art each one near perfect. Things I would have changed:nothing, good job beeman What others should know:works good in my 2250 and Chinese rifles your results may differ.
Things I liked:No frills scope is clear and simple . Holds settings. Things I would have changed:shorter What others should know:Whats more to say? It's affordable and stays true. As good as any 4x32 I own.
Things I liked:Nice quality pellet. Consistent and accurate. Things I would have changed:nothing a little more cost than similar Cross premiers What others should know:Good pellet on par with Crosman premiere hollows without the hollow point.
If Premiers work for you these should too. They seem to work in more guns than other pellets. ???
Things I liked:Compared to the Silver Eagle HP's they're a little heavier, but still very light, with a bit more accuracy.
Nice quality control.
Unique pellet! Things I would have changed:A bit Pricey What others should know:Work well in most of my low to med.powered guns.
Not always the best choice but good.
Crosman seems to make better than average pellets
Things I liked:Cheap.
The do help a little.
Peel & stick. Things I would have changed:They are what they are! What others should know:they do help a little when placed on small targets, especially dark surfaces.
Things I liked:At 6.9 g they fit in a hard to fill weight gap in pellet variety. They compliment my scope dialing assortment nicely and of course typical RWS quality. Things I would have changed:nothing, they represent an excellent value. What others should know:Although not perfect for every gun they work great in lower powered rifles and fit all of my pistol magazines.
Things I liked:Nice weight niche. Excellent Beeman quality. Things I would have changed:A bit pricey but aren't they all. (the good ones) What others should know:Dependable accuracy in my 400-600 fps C02 powered guns.
Things I liked:ACCURACY! ,
Near perfect light Trigger,
Build quality everywhere you look,
Light Weight. Things I would have changed:Me! I cant get used to the automatic safety.
The kind of bland stock becomes less noticeable when you start shooting it.
Mendoza has a great product that deserves sprucing up.
At $89 it was a steal @ $109 it's a good deal. What others should know:Of my 30+ guns never have I had a gun this accurate with open sights. At first I was disappointed when trying to sight it in at ten yards but when I moved out to 25 it became spot on. I always play with the open sights before scoping. I won't be putting a scope on this one.
.22 Chronied erratically between 600 and 675fps, we'll see when it settles down and is broken in. Still, it's more than the manufacturers specs.
Don't let the bland looks fool you.
This is a shooters gun.
Things I liked:Beautiful. It is the real thing that feels like a gun, looks like a gun and shoots like a gun. Not A Toy! Things I would have changed:There is always plenty to wish for but this is the real deal and it is what it is.
Nothing stands out as a design flaw. What others should know:This isn't a gun you can mod to the hills like a 2240 but it is absolutely beautiful as it is.
If you know that going in there shouldn't be any disappointments
Out of the box I angeled the exhaust port and put a lighter spring in the valve then cronied her @ 435 fps with 14g pellets 472 with Beeman Silver Bears @ 12.9g
Things I liked:Ergonomics ergonomics ergonomics!
With 20 Pistols in my collection none feel this good.
Very powerful and Crosman Silver eagle hollow points fit in the rotary mag and they shoot well at close to the advertised speed of 480 according to my Chrony.
Quick load magnetic rotary Mag.
Quick load C02 cartridge all manufacturers should look at!
Nice wide metal trigger. Things I would have changed:Nothing,
dual action would be nice. What others should know:10 yd accuracy limit but hey it's darn good for a barrel that's less than 4 inches long.
Things I liked:Blowback has a very realistic feel and makes it fun to shoot.
Chrony reads 450fps average with Crosman Silver Eagle Hollow Point Lead Free pellets. Advertised FPS is accurate with lead pellets
Good value since everything less expensive is toy like and more expensive guns are considerably more expensive. Things I would have changed:adjustable rear sight. What others should know:Fairly good accuracy you can get used to.
Things I liked:Great ergonomics, nice wood and seems well built with little use of plastic.
Light weight yet not too light. Things I would have changed:Little use of plastic. What others should know:Loud and powerful. Mine passed over the chrony at a little better than 800fps
Pumping from empty is a bit of a chore.
Things I liked:Quality build, changeability, Instruction booklet that explains valve rebuild.
Never bought a Baikal that shot less than advertised. Things I would have changed:pellet Clip availability is non existent. What others should know:Mine shoots Crosman silver eagle hollow points @ over 400 fps across my Chrony . Baikal's website spec's claim 120 Meters per second. Do the math. That's over 360fps. I have no Idea why all the Mail order sites in the US show such horrible FPS #'s
Things I liked:An unfair review!
I was sent three tins that were badly dented and I could find very few uncrushed skirts. After sorting for a long while and looking at the one in ten good pellets I phoned Pyramyd who graciously sent out three more.
New tins came perfect yet I still find an unacceptable amount of distorted skirts. Must be a characteristic of the pellet design. Things I would have changed:I'm not sure if better packaging would even resolve this. Maybe JSB should look into a different kind of package for the more fragile skirted pellets. What others should know:Thin skirts but they cant be beat for aim and consistency if you toss the occasional bad one.
Things I liked:Quality is amongst the best.
weight is extremely consistent pellet to pellet.
One of my Field target choices. Things I would have changed:I'd sacrifice a bit of weight in exchange for a bit sturdier skirt, easy to straighten. What others should know:I found a very small amount of distortion of the skirts.
Things I liked:Actually the accuracy is awesome for a smooth bore bb gun
Maybe not one holers out to 10 yds .but it stays within a silver dollar size and only the occasional stringer.
Looks scary Good ! Things I would have changed:Thing I would change aren't possible. A shorter barrel with the same accuracy What others should know:It comes with two cartridges. I didn't catch that so I bought a spare. That's fine too.
Things I liked:Works as it should. Things I would have changed:Nothing as of yet. What others should know:Used for many rounds so far without a hitch. I notice little if any change from single pellet accuracy.
Things I liked:All metal, heavy, 4 clips, Things I would have changed:smooth bore should be rifled...for better accuracy. What others should know:Price considered this is a nice pistol.
It's a heavy all metal gun that feels great in the hand. likes light domes.Beeman ECO Kodiaks or H&N Baracuda Green, Lead Frees.
Beeman ECO Kodiak Other manufacturers should follow Beeman and include four clips It with their guns.
IT's a nice pistol you shoot from the hip not a target gun. A lot of fun to shoot compared to some of the plastic guns. available.
Things I liked:Surprisingly good accuracy.For use in Co2 or low power guns. Things I would have changed:Too expensive to use on a regular basis. What others should know:Most if not all ultra light pellets I have tried seem to sacrifice total accuracy at distance for speed.
I like to target shoot pistols out to 20+ yards. 380-500 fps w/lead just doesn't get them there and most ultralight pellets scatter. .
These seem to go farther while retaining quite a bit more accuracy.
Things I liked:MY standard for testing/preliminary sighting in.
Very good quality yet neither great nor bad. Things I would have changed:A couple of more variety in weight would be nice. What others should know:Dependable.Semi consistent,
Things I liked:Saves a lot of aggravation.
I have 4 pcp's with forester fills and then bought a Korean gun.
Unscrew the old probe fitting and screw in the new! Things I would have changed:Charge a little more and give it a good looking cap. What others should know:No need to switch back & forth from one fitting to another to fill different guns.
Things I liked:Fat, Awesome for Korean guns and other high powered .22's that they'll fit. What others should know:These have a .225 skirt for a great seal but you need a high powered 22 for them to work good.
Things I liked:Fat skirt, highest FPE available. Makes good use of high powered guns.Heavy and efficient,I would not use in CO2 or low powered springers Things I would have changed:Make a 32g dome. What others should know: Tight fitting skirt is .225 although the head is .22. Bad for .22 low powered guns, excellent for high power guns.
Retains 850 fps & 45 fpe at 50 yards when shot exiting 1000 fps @ muzzle. That's efficient!
Things I liked:Some of my rifles like 4.52 instead of 4.5.
They are are good quality JSB's made for AA.
What others should know:Thinner skirts will need to be handled with care but expand better so I'm told.
Things I liked:Size consistency shape and accuracy.
All other light weighs don't compare. Things I would have changed:Price of course. Very expensive when used a lot. What others should know:Ideal for low powered 10m .22's that you would like to shoot to 20m. My .22 cal guns that shoot in the 500 fps range all shoot in the 600's with these pellets and retain if not inprove accuracy.
Things I liked:At first sight they seem ok. Closer inspection reveals bad finished skirts.
I can't believe Crosman still produces these. I bought some 5 years ago and they were terrible then.
I did see the shape had been changed a bit so I thought I'd give them a second chance in my sub 500 fps guns.
Better groups than before but still way too many fliers out of a low powered, known good shooting rifle.
Two to 2 1/2 inch groups at 15 yards ! Things I would have changed:Quality control.
Stop producing these till you know what you're doing.
H&N has a much more accurate alloy pellet so it can be done.. What others should know:The only thing these will hit is your wallet.
The only thing they will hurt is Crosmans good name.
Things I liked:I can whack this thing with a .22 @ 600+ fps. Well built even if it is a little wiggly. Still tons of fun and cheaper than burst targets.
Fun with two people to start at either end then work your was across and see who can spin them all then spin the top first. Things I would have changed:Better fitting sections to remove the wiggle. What others should know:After I realized I probably was not going to ever disassemble it I epoxy-ed the stand together to tighten it up.
Once you've zeroed your gun on the target it is easy to replace with the top spinner.
Things I liked:All metal gun, hidden co2 with cover, Nice details although not all working.
Good overall quality.
Impressive to view and feels good in the hand. Things I would have changed:Rifled barrel but that would limit it to pellets only.
What others should know:It's a pistol so you shouldn't expect it to shoot accurately past the standard 10 yards. You simply need a longer barrel for more speed and better accuracy.
Still searching for a pellet forgiving enough for a smooth bore ?????
Things I liked:All metal extreme quality gun.
The Walther style metal magazines fit many of my other guns.
Realistic feel (heavy) and vy accurate out to 15 yards.
Put in a friends hand they'll think its a powder gun.. Things I would have changed:Maybe rubberized grips. The plastic ones feel cheap and are the only glaring drawback to its esthetics. At close to $200 they should be rubber if not wood. What others should know:I bought the wood grips and have noticed a better feel and of course look.
Really long pellets can be too long.
Seems to accept alloys without to much fuss, some better than others. No Crosman alloy pellets work good.
As always you get what you pay for.
Things I liked:Accuracy, In Both shooting and in build. FPS is adequate, better than most.
Quality fit & finish far surpasses any airgun manufacturer. Things I would have changed:Price of course. What others should know:Although the rubberized feeling plastic grips are better than plastic feeling of the CP88's plastic grips If I had it to do all over again I'd buy them both with the wood grips to begin with. They really make a great looking pistol a Beautiful Showpiece.
Things I liked:Made in Japan!
Accuracy (for a smoothbore).
Amount of metal.
Classy Case Things I would have changed:Double safety. What others should know:Pictures don't do it justice as heft and finish is more appreciated in your hand.
