Things I liked: Loved the stock on this one, really liked the metal safety. Works fine and has all the accuracy and power i want. I did a few mods and have 1 hole 5 shot groups @ 40 yds, a fox met his end @ 70 yd head shot. Great starter pcp
Things I would have changed: Metal trigger guard, second barrel band, the shot count is more like 12 to 15 instead of 25 as listed
What others should know: Dont get this pcp anywhere else but PA. Local gun shops seem to have the crappy selection of these fine air guns, plus PA has the best staff. Gun arrived right on time.
Things I liked: It was accurate, when it held air, when the bolt decided it wanted to work, when it decided in it's bi-polar condition that it would fire at full power. Yeah, wonderful.
Things I would have changed: Manufacturing. Plastic (not even polymer?!) trigger : / Cheap internal parts that are difficult to field strip and assemble again. Trigger is non-adjustable, and oh yeah....plastic. Barrel needs to be better than "Red Ryder" grade, it seems to be the cheapest, thinnest, steel barrel they could put on this thing, no shroud? And the steel on the barrel is way to thin, like it's made for a kid's bb gun. This is supposed to be a "hunting rifle", .22 caliber and it has a cheap barrel. Not surprised. Compression gauge never reads right, even if I had NO air in it, the gauge read 100psi. Degassing doesn't work. Hammer spring is junk, most people on many forums say they replaced the spring with one from a Glock 17!! WTF? Overall: It fired fine for a week. Yup, that's it. A week. After that, owning this gun, you'll need to get used to the following procedure: 1. Notice a leak. 2. Tear down, attempt to diagnose. 3. Replace the parts, put back together. 4. Notice a leak, 5. Repeat 1-3.
What others should know: Yes. Crosman is JUNK! Cheap parts, junk made upper, constant leaking and FPS drops when it's on an "off" day and the gun is in a bad mood, No sling attachments, even, and the safety likes to just fall out. No, I'm not joking. Difficult and very time consuming and frustrating to field strip, and even more so to re-assemble. Parts are cheap junk, the O rings didn't match the holes/ports they were put into, and you have to have the fingers like a child to easily load a round into the chamber. I had the QB78 before this, and was Chinese made, and lasted 3 years. This piece of $300 garbage lasted 4 months. I grew tired of constantly finding ANOTHER leak, and looking for the issue, only to find out I made another leak when I assembled it! I can't believe that Remington puts their ownership and work into such junk. All in all: Biggest waste of time and money, and nothing but frustrating. I spent more time trying to fix it than firing it.
Things I liked: Very accurate right out of the box. Light weight and easy to handle. Fixed sights work well but add a good scope.
Things I would have changed: Very loud.
What others should know: Great pcp air rifle for the money. Skip the pump and get a scuba tank for filling. Once you add a scope it will put the pellet where you put the crosshairs. Loud! Definitely not backyard friendly.

I wonder what weight pellet they used for the 900 fps rating. With light lead pellets in the 12.56 gr weight they give only a 10 shot average of 836 fps for me! With a full air charge in the cylinder. I suspect they used some light alloy pellet, but I sure as hell wish they would tell what pellet and what weight was used. Else the information is USELESS!!! Just a manufacturer advertising gimmick to SUCK YOU IN!! I also wish the manufacturers would be FORCED to only use one weight of light pellet and one of medium weight and one of heavy weight for the caliber to rate their guns. Same pellets for ALL guns of same caliber! WAIT...here's a thought. Maybe the manufacturers could/would come to such an agreement. Or at LEAST an agreement to publish the brand/weight of pellet used for their velocity claims!! Because these claims of 900 fps for this gun are not substantiated in MY gun with even light lead pellets!!
Do I have to have the degassing tool for safety reasons or is it just something else to buy
Do as you wish! I have no degassing tool, and on the RARE event I want to release all the gas, I just shoot it empty till no more air is left!! Yeah it takes longer than a degassing tool, but is less expensive! You choose!
