Things I liked:Good scope, handy reticle. Easy to click knobs. Clear manual Things I would have changed:Would like shades, for the eyepiece and objective. Scope covers rather than flip ups. What others should know:Get chairgun and brc apps, for computer and/or mobile, with them you can map out trajectories
Things I liked:H&n make fine lead. My pistol marauder likes them. Things I would have changed:Price, free would be rad What others should know:Dont skimp on pellets, get decent ones you gun likes, then stock up, dont want to go empty
Things I liked:Came with Discovery, fairly easy to take apart and fix. Things I would have changed:Better hardware, stainless seems more appropriate with these high pressures. Hex heads instead of phillips. Use a good silicon grease. Include assembly diagrams, and sizes of o-rings. Assemble less tightly. What others should know:Worked for a few months, then became hard to pump. So i decided to fix it myself. I found a forum post that had pictures of the dissassembly (actually was a slightly different version). The lube had become gunky and part of the outer shaft had a rust spot, sanded that out, relubed with a lithium grease (bad idea, gummed up very quick). After reading more about pumps i rebuilt it again, this time replacing o-rings, the smaller sizes with viton o-rings. and lubed with high grade silicon grease, from a diver's supply. Also i tightened everything hand tight, the o-rings do the sealing, so there's no need to crank down on anything.
Since rebuild, it pumps and seems to do a good job. I fill a Discovery and a pistol Marauder, which arent too demanding, but it does ok. Plan on rebuilding it, and maintaining it after.
That said, I intend on getting a Hill pump, they designed it to be easy to service, and many people say its the best.
Things I liked:Magazine fed, small size, abiility to go from pistol to carbine, easy to pump the small resevoir, good trigger, shroud is proportionate to pistol, good fit and finish. Things I would have changed:The "air-stripper". Add a single shot tray, maybe add provisions for a front sight, have a shoulder stock that attaches to the pistol, instead of changing out the grips. What others should know:Seems that I got lucky and got a good one. Hopefully it's the case that Crosman has worked out previous problems. The gun I recieved was well built, good finish on the metal, good machining on the breech and nicely packaged in it's box. This is my first airgun in 22 cal, and this pistol has gotten me to like this caliber. The shroud works ok when the adjustments (spring tension, hammer travel) are set low-medium. past the mid settings, the gun becomes much louder
