Things I liked:Blowback. I love blowback, but it's so harrd to find in a pellet gun. Also, the grips are comfortable, and the accessory rail is a nice bonus. Things I would have changed:Higher FPS. I would like around 550 w/ PBA. Also, make a version with a longer barrel, for better speed and accuracy. What others should know:Pretty accurate at mid range. It isn't a gun to take too seriously, beyond basic safety, of course. Don't expect too much, but it doesn't disappoint either.
Things I liked:I love the look. Also, the contoured grips feel good. The hammer is very smooth. Things I would have changed:Higher FPS. I would love to see around 550 w/ PBA. Also, make a version with an 8" barrel. What others should know:Decently accurate. It's not gonna win a professional competition, but it's perfect for backyard plinking.
Things I liked:Great accuracy. It will accept most .177 pellets. The break is very smooth and not very hard. The Bull Whisper works really well. I like the feel of the Nitro Piston Things I would have changed:The scope. Either bump it up to 40mm, or make it 3-9x32. That's about it. What others should know:This airgun deserves a good scope. I'm using a Swiss Arms 4x40, and it works pretty well.
Things I liked:Above expected accuracy. Feels great. Looks good. More compact than most spring pistols. Things I would have changed:Basically, I would make an "indoor" model (current version) and an "outdoor" model, with a 6-8 inch barrel, and higher fps. Baring that, there's not a lot I would change. What others should know:It's best at about ten yards, shooting cans and whatnot. For the low price, it delivers.
Things I liked:Metal construction. Pretty good feel compared to the real thing. Accuracy is pretty good, given the shorter barrel. Things I would have changed:personally, I'd give it a 6" slide and contoured rubber grips to match my real thing, but that's just me. What others should know:Stock plenty of pellets and clips, because you're gonna go through them at an alarming rate.
Things I liked:I liked the look. Also, the grips feel good in my hands. Accuracy is decent for a 6" barrel. Overall, an great backyard plinker for the airgun hobbyist. Things I would have changed:Personally, I'd go longer barrel, but that's just me. Would be nice if Crosman brought back the GW kit. Also, rubber grips would be nice, but that would probably increase the cost. What others should know:This is just a 3576 with a different barrel. As such, the trigger is (still) a bit heavy when fired double action. However, firing single action is very crisp, with little resistance. This gun certainly isn't going to win any 10-meter contest, but for fun popping tin cans or spinners, it can't be beat for the price.
Things I liked:Accuracy is good. I've owned a multitude of CO2 pistols, both BB and pellet. While it won't outperform a Crosman 1701p (due to obvious reasons), it's still deadly accurate. I could get quarter sized groups at 10 meters, which is better than most of my other CO2 pistols. Feels good in my hand, and is reliable. Plus, I just love a 6" pistol Things I would have changed:Higher FPS. This is my common complaint. I'd love to see either FPS in the 500s, or a power adjuster. Also, the price, while not totally unreasonable, is a little high to compete with other guns. Granted, it's very well made, but people may tend to choose the lower priced option. Also, any "upgrades" (nickel, wood grips) cost significantly, much to my chagrin. What others should know:I'm not an expert, but I've owned quite a few air pistols. This one is, in mmy opinion, well worth the money. What surprised me is that it does better than my Crosman 357, which has the same length barrel. Granted, there are FPS differences, but not overly significant ones. In my opinion, a great value for the money. I wouldn't opt for the more expensive versions, because they give the same performance, at a higher price.
Things I liked:While far from an expert, I know a thing or two about airguns. That being said, I was very pleased with this one. Solid build, decent barrel length, good accuracy, the nitro piston, and a feel very comparable to the real thing combine to make this an outstanding gun. Things I would have changed:Personally, I would lighten it up a bit, because I don't use it to practice for the real thing. Others may disagree. What others should know:While its not a $3,000 Olympic rifle, it's perfect for eliminating pests such as rodents, bunnies, and stray tin cans and clay birds. I'm not the best shot, nor do I claim to be. However, even I can hit an inch wide target at 20 yards.
Things I liked:Accuracy is good for 10m practice. Grip was awesome (left handed grip, at least). Trigger feels pretty good. Not quite as accurate as my Alfa Proj, but half the price. Things I would have changed:Other than the price tag, Id say maybe an ambidextrous grip, so us lefties don't have to buy a separate grip. What others should know:I opted for this version over the shorter version for my 10m practicing. 2 pumps was good for that. I got it so I wouldn't have to re-fill my PCP every single time I practiced. It serves this purpose well.
Things I liked:Love the 8" barrel. I've been wanting an 8" pellet repeater since they discontinued the Crosman GW kit. This fits the bill. Accuracy is good (I got about 0.45'0.6" groups firing offhand). Things I would have changed:The single thing I would change is how the pellets are done. I, personally, would have done a rifled shell with the pellet in the back. As they are now, it takes forever to re-load. What others should know:If you're looking for a 8" pellet pistol, look no further. It's not olympic-class, but you can't beat the value.
Things I liked:Accuracy. This gun has a LW barrel, so accuracy is great. I usually use the high power setting with Diablo Heavy pellets, and it delivers. I've been getting 70+ scores on 10m targets at 10m (the ones with 12 rings). Things I would have changed:The only thing I would change is giving it the 1701p's (the PCP version) trigger and grips, as they're significantly better, and more suited to the price range. What others should know:if you're looking for a good beginner target pistol, look no further. It's CO2, so it's a lot cheaper than PCP. Eventually you'll probably want to move on to a PCP pistol for target shooting, but this gun is a good starting point.
