By tom from USA on 2010-11-03 02:28:19Things I liked:the gun is very acurate and cheap but the plastic is kindof good becuase it dosnt scrach
Things I would have changed:make the reciever out of meetal and make a stronger conection between the reciever and buttstock.
What others should know:dont bother with 4 powered scopes just get a 2-7 or3-9 and sight it in mine shoots half inch groups at 50 yarrds with crosman pointed pellets and is covered with camo duct tape becuase it helps keep some of the parts from rusting.

By Mike Ogden from usa on 2014-09-06 02:40:37Things I liked:Well i liked the price and the accuracy was acceptable though not as good as i expected.
Things I would have changed:I would like to see the 880 made just the way it was around 1981-82 with metal receiver & pump arm as the plastic pump arm used today can have flex from side to side as well as in the correct direction. What can i say it just feels like a toy. The big problem with this gun has always been the same loading pellets especially with a scope on the gun can be difficult for any size hand. The trigger on the 880 could be a lot better, but at least on the one i got it was pretty consistent if not a little heavy, but better than every Gamo trigger from the same time period & including my Gamo Big Cat from the metal trigger era. Which brings me to the receiver mount for a scope just is not very stable with any rings or scope i used.
What others should know:My dissatisfaction with this model 880 purchased in 2007 was based in large part on the changes in manufacturing vs. my first 880 i purchased in 1981-82 and it is possible it was an older model that lingered in stock. My old 880 was a lot heavier and more stable, but all that is not what matters. With my old 880 i could get 3/4" group at 40yd and with the new 880 that was the best i could do at 20yd using daisy wad cutters. In conclusion if i were purchasing a pump bb/pellet rifle i would spend the extra 20 and get the Crosman 2100b as i believe it is better quality in every aspect vs. the 880 & has a much more reasonable trigger weight than the 880 or the 901. Also it is over 1.5lbs heavier.
