By Steven from USA on 2010-03-25 01:41:41Things I liked:8 shot repeater.Uses Gamo round lead .177 lead balls.Can store c02 in pistol grip without damaging seal.The key is ,Not to compress handle piercing lever untill needed to charge c02 for firing.Dry firing not needed.A fully loaded clip is all thats needed to start firing after piercing lever is compressed to handle.A very quick way to be able to have 8 -shots within a matter of seconds.Excellent way Crosman engineered this c02 charge system into handle of pistol!
Things I would have changed:A larger C02 chamber for more power.And a .22 version, if ever produced would be interesting.
What others should know:This is the first C02 repeater pistol i ever seen that where a C02 powerlet can be inserted and not have to twist a screw to power it.Also ,its the fastest to shoot ,meaning that if needed within 3 seconds ,you can have 8 shots ready to go! The only way to do this is to insert c02 into handle grip shuttle,but dont activate c02 with piercing lever untill needed.That way you wont damage seal if stored for more than 8 hours and beyond.Crosman has done an excellent job with this very realistic looking pistol.Also i noticed that dry firing after a new c02 to charge it is not needed.And the first 3 shots seem extremely more velocity than the package/manual says.Probably cause when a full clip is in it and c02 is charged ,it fills the chamber more than after the c02 is charged,If dry fired ,a valve lets only a certain amount for each subsequent firing.If you do buy one ,try this and you'll see the difference .Especially with RWS hyper velocity lead free pellets(.177) the first 3 shots will easily put holes in a heavy metal tin can,Wow.Heavier pellets dont work well.Light pellets with semi round nose fire perfect and accurate every time.Crosman .177 pointed field hunting pells are great for this pistol and Gamo round lead balls seem to work well too,even though they are heavy they rifle less surface on each ball and exit barrel at a good velocity.BB's are tricky, the magnet pulls two bb's in each clip hole and i rarely use these for this reason.Great pistol by Crosman .

By barry from USA on 2011-03-11 10:07:02Things I liked:it does come in a case
Things I would have changed:TAKE IT OF THE MARKET
What others should know:first off this is my first negative review , please check my reviews on other pistols . well here goes , i bought this gun because i read it is a GLOCK LOOK ALIKE . well it does look like a GLOCK at 178 feet ! ! the trigger must have a pull of about 35 lbs. ! when you load the pellet clip in the gun it is very flimsy and loose . i has to use a screw driver to help remove the Co2 clip and as far as carrying the gun and not piercing the Co2 just don't catch the PLASTIC strap on anything . since the entire gun is made of plastic including the clip i don't think this thing will last . as far as accuracy at 28 feet it will hold a 10 inch group WITH PELLETS ! overall CROSMAN DROPPED THE BALL ON THIS ONE . or did i just get a bad one ? all i can say is THANK YOU PYRAMYD AIR FOR YOU GREAT RETURN POLICY .
