Things I liked:Love it. The feel, adjustable stock, pellets/BBs option, etc. It is a great all around backyard shooter. Once it's sighted in, it's so accurate and fun to use. For the price it's just unbeatable and I can see being a blast to upgrade with scopes/sights/laser/flash-light. Just buy it. Things I would have changed:Would like to see a new model that gets a higher FPS. I almost bought the MK-177 (the one that looks like a SCAR) but it had bad reviews even with the 800 FPS so I was sold on this M4. Maybe a Break-Barrel or Side-Spring Repeater version (for pellets-only obviously) with a higher FPS for this type of gun would be imaginatively great. Also wouldn't mind if the storage area (Magazine Mock-up) was elongated for more storage options. What others should know:I am relatively new to the Air-Gun scene and I think I have a problem... Can't get enough of it. My first was the TR-77- awesome. Great Long-range Break Barrel with high FPS. My second, the American Classic- great pump pistol with impressive speed and range/accuracy- also prefer to call it the Hand Cannon. My third being the P10- pretty kicking little repeater for just making a mess with BBs. Now this M4 just tops off my collection nicely with it's versatile shooting options.
Things I liked:I love the look and feel of the gun... It's a SCAR moc-up so c'mon- it's awesome for that reason alone. The plastic is also pretty heavy duty that you can trust (def not flimsy) The storage behind the rubber butt-plate is also pretty cool with the individual shelving for compact storage up to 4 clips and also the fitting for the sight adjustment tool- very nice touch. I've only had it a couple days so working on the accuracy. Going to give it the benefit of the doubt. Things I would have changed:There have been many complaints about the backwards bolt/loader situation (Bolt on the left, push clip through from right) I get it, also almost steered me away from the whole idea of owning this gun but ya know what?- Not a big deal really. Just turn the rifle to its side you can still do it one handed and after a couple shots can also work it from the left. It's just a pump airgun, not going to war here, can def find a way to reload pretty quick. But after saying all that, yeah Crosman should change it so it's like the M4 model just to make it a little easier (one hand motion) in the 'heat' of the action. I would also make the clip removable for storage like the M4 because why not have the extra space utilized? The fake switch displaying bbs/pellets should either work or be removed. Since I plan to use the airgun only for pellets- don't care really. What others should know:Despite much of the negative reviews of this model I've seen over the past few months, I've always wanted to get it anyway, finally did. Overall, I find the general use of this airgun enjoyable. It makes a fine addition to my collection (TR-77,1377w/stock,C11,M4). I bought the M4-177 prior to this model because of how awesome everybody says it is- so if you don't already have that you should get it. Anyways MK, I'm just getting the sights aligned nicely- getting better groups and plinking FancyFeast catfood cans (2 1/4in. diameter) 70-80ft away w/ open sights so far, love shooting this gun. I used the M4's rear sight handle on the MK to beef it up and have the more open rear sight to have a better field of vision- kickin' ass so far. I want to throw some optics on it to see what it can really do. I have a feeling it will be a very reliable backyard shooter the more I work at it. I think this model deserves a break- worth the money, it'll be fun to upgrade and maybe Crosman would consider some subtle changes to make it even better. For under 100 bucks, why wouldn't you get it honestly? I recommend owning both the M4&MK to enjoy swapping optics and share clips )they're compatible after all -mix it up while you're having 'Backyard Ops'. I bought a ridiculous amount of extra clips for these guns, it's nonstop fun.
Things I liked:This little gun packs some heat, it has a high FPS (for a C02 pistol) which is what I always look to first in an airgun so I was sold there. I also enjoy the clip aspect of the shooting experience, kinda like the real deal. Things I would have changed:The grip could use a little more length because once you lock in the Co2 cartridge, it sometimes doesn't slide all the way in place- gotta do it just right. The gun also seems a tad flimsy so go easy, probably don't want to drop it (shouldn't drop a gun anyways but it happens). But for the price and what you get out of it, worth the money. What others should know:I'm not the biggest fan of Co2 guns or bbs (more for pellet shooting) but I wanted the repeater ability so after buying this, I don't mind so much. If you load the cartridge nicely without expending too much gas you get great to decent power between 6-7 clips (120-140bbs) to one 12g cartridge. Definitely buy extra clips to fully enjoy the use of this airgun. I am also probably not that great at this type of pistol shooter (it's also really light) but I have noticed my groups improving therefore the gun is pretty accurate for what it is. It seems like you need to aim slightly down to the right to hit near or on bulls-eyes. I put my target probably 30-35ft away. Also for s***s and giggles shot at a can 70ft away and hit it so it has power and decent range. If you have an extra chunk of cash for another piece to add to the collection, just get it.
