By Unknown Infidel from USA on 2011-11-04 10:28:11Things I liked:When I first saw this I thought "this is the coolest thing I have seen in a long time". I just got mine and gave it a thougough going over. Finish is nice. Barrel is plastic with metal inner barrel. In cact most of it is plastic. It's a bit lighter than a real m4. Looks enough like an ar platform that it could very easily be mistaken for one. Loved the ajustable butstock. Sights do requirw tools but are ajustable.nice that magazine holds 4 pellet holder and front sight tool. And plenty of places for lasers, sights, flashlights, and can also hold a pistol bayonette. Easy to pump up too.
Things I would have changed:I would prefer the barrel be all metal and the sights are just a touch cheesy but can be replaced by anumber of optics or aftermarket sights. Other than that, well done crosman!
What others should know:If you are in the market for a pump gun, this should be the one. Far superior to the nightstalker in quality. I have a feeling this one will be a very deireable gun for a long time and perhaps a collectable like the crosman air 17 from the 1980's.

By Arpad from USA on 2014-12-22 19:17:11Things I liked:The ergonomics of the gun are fantastic. Size, weight, Picatinny rail for sights and the sights themselves are neat. (Yes, lots of plastic but that's OK). Accuracy with pellets is good.
Things I would have changed:Accuracy with bbs is not good. Also, the bb gravity feed system is sometimes troublesome, it needs to have the muzzle pointed down to load but even so, I have had a few failures to feed a bb into the chamber. The location and configuration of the bb feed opening is troublesome, and can result in spilled bbs. Perhaps a small indentation here would help. BB accuracy definitely needs to be improved, see below.
What others should know:The reviews on this gun are generally very good, many praise its accuracy. I think these folks are using pellets. If you are looking for a gun that performs well with both bbs and pellets, this is not the one. We use our guns for back yard target practice and plinking so we often use bbs when shooting soda cans and informal targets. Our Red Rider and the Umarex NXG give far tighter bb groups (and yes, we used the copper coated crosman bbs with the M4-177 as recommended by Crosman, the results were still terrible). Supported, at 30 ft the RR and NXG can yield bb impact circles about 2-2.5 inch in diameter, with the NXG generally tighter. The M4-177 under identical conditions yielded impact circles of about 6-8 inches, (shot groups of 5 to 10). With pellets the M4-177 did as well as the NXG. For all around performance with bbs and pellets, my vote is for the NXG. Because of its ergonomics, with better bb accuracy the M4 would be a serious competitor.
