Things I liked:Great 10 meter target rifle.
This rifle has won many Gold Medals in the International Junior League.
Wether young or old you will like this rifle.
It is made to punch targets in same hole, not shoot game. However it is plenty enough for some such uses.
Grooved for scope mount or use standard sights.
extra clip and cleaning rod.
Be careful not to double feed, as they are dificult to clear, you have to knock em out with the cleaning rod from the muzzle so be careful not to bugger the rifling.
All IZH guns have hammer forged barrels as opposed to cut rifling, companies generally cannot afford the massive equipment to hammer forge, probably why these shoot so good. Just cheap ole Crosman wadcutters will follow each other, try some others too if you want one ragged hole.
Pleasant to use, easy cock, not loud at all.
Nice for basement in winter for everyone to share.
Their Match pistol is a Olympic Medal winner too.
Things I liked:Excellent wood,checkering,finish. Much nicer than expected.
The metal polish and bluing is excellent as well.
Metal to metal fit is exact.
Glow front and rear sights a real plus.
Shoots very hard in .22cal Things I would have changed:Junky cheap high mount rings. Scope is ok for free but rings change to low mount and something strong for it does shake the scope.
My rifle shoots to the left, not a problem with iron sights, but if you scope it, the line of pellet flight will intersect with the line of scope, I said intersect not follow same flight path. So it will shoot to one side before you point of zero and other side after your point of zero. So you have to use wind-age adjustable mounts, zero/center the scope and adjust mounts until scope x-hairs shoot to pellet at 25yds,50yds,75yds. Then you know you are running true to flight. A lot of trouble, a more expensive gun I would have returned demanding sights set to center and rifle shoots to center.
I think this one I'm gonna put on a red lazer with an offset pitatinny side-mount on this 11mm grooved receiver and call it a day. but really for 150$ this is an awsome rifle. I'm just picky. Shoots harder than any other of my 22 springers that cost 3x the money What others should know:it is very accurate/consistent with the H&N Field pels despite not being broken in yet. I did clean the barrel carefully and ran patches with rubbing alcohol to make sure it was absolutely grease/debris free and a few drops of silicone oil on the seal before firing first shot. It is heavily greased all over. Easier and smoother to cock each time.very pleased, can't believe it for the money and this stock is really nice checking and lettering looks lazer cut, perfect!
Things I liked:Very clear, good light gathering, sharp AO thru-out it's range. Things I would have changed:It is heavy, I don't know why since it does not have all the extra stuff for IR. Just built heavy duty.
So if you have a real nice balanced rifle, that is NOT heavy, you may not want to make it TOP heavy. What others should know:I wouldn't hesitate to put this on a heavy kicker like the rws 48 or similar, in fact that is exactly were it is going. I bought this to put it on a HW 95, which is such a nicely balance rifle, I must find something lighter, in 3-9x32ao probably. I'll find the weight next time before i buy.
Things I liked:I've had Crosman guns for about 45 years now, still have the 1st one I bought. Any time I have had a problem Crossman has never failed me. Bought the .25, then got the .22 disappointed at first, but bought the single shot loader, now it shoots one hole groups. Just got the .177, Stellar, at first I thought there was something wrong with it, as it barely made a noise. went about 4 feet in front of a 1/2" of plywood, blew a hole right thru it! Wow.
Things I would have changed:nothing What others should know:I installed a depinger, look up on youtube if you want.
Ordered single shot loader, increases accuracy, same as for any rifle.
Shoots great tight groups with the Crossman brown box 10g about 1200 pels in box, and these are plenty heavy enough to whap a vermin goodbye, in fact you will probably shoot right thru.
Things I liked:Quiet, very accurate, excellent trigger. Things I would have changed:not a thing What others should know:a little hard to access barrel for cleaning.
I got one patch thru it before shooting, it was black.
very hard to get access from chamber to clean, but necessary. I used some cleaning pellets(2, 1 tip oiled, 1 dry behind the other), which was real loud because of little resistance. instead of using exact 15g pellets, I loaded up with exacts 18g, very, very quiet, and exceptionally accurate. so if you find you want it quieter, you know what to use.
so easy to pump up this reservoir, I have not even used my scuba tank, not required for this really.
superb trigger out of the box, I needed no adjustment.
I really like this a lot! light, and accurate, I was shooting out the "o's on a sheet of bulk mail typewritten paper @ 27yds."
Things I liked:Inexpensive/accurate Things I would have changed:no6thing for the $. What others should know:I was stunned by how accurate this thing is.
I had some old Crossman wadcutter pels, so I thought I'd try them out, bought a cheap 4x scope made in China at a gun show once, it's not air gun recoil proof, but the recoil is so light it does not bother it. This thing shoots boringly straight over and over again, just a ragged hole if you can hold it still, shoots any pels I have put thru it good. Stay in the under 8 grain area. There are guys that soop it up by putting a washer in the back inside, but just leave it alone. Mine has the early adjustable trig. Great item for the wife and kids during a picnic, or just buddies coming over. Guaranteed you will love this hammer forged barrel. These will be gone soon with Obama on IZH ban, so don't think too long, there is really nothing in it's class holds most of the world gold medals in junior category.
Things I liked:1st time I ever had a factory trigger setting, I did not want to improve. Awsome trig with all typical match grade adjustments.
Things I would have changed:nada What others should know:I tried it @ 10M of a rest, just one ragged hole centered to ring without touching sights!
Barrel not even broken in yet!
Recommend when storing to NOT lock down bolt, so you do not unnecessarily keep 0 ring compressed. Wipe off outside with a little Synthetic oil just a drop on 0 ring, don't clean barrel, maybe after 5,000 shots, then only pull thru with a dab of synthetic Hoppes to not damage seals, DO NOT DAMAGE this hammer forged, lapped barrel. Bargain Bargain Bargain. A Lifetime Keeper, with the pox on IZH now, there will be no more.
