The 760 Pumpmaster is what all the other multi-pump pneumatics want to be! In production for decades, over 10 million have been sold. It shoots BBs or .177 pellets and does so with power and accuracy.
At less than 3 lbs., it's a great starter air rifle. The stock and forearm are made of a durable synthetic that takes lots of use and still looks good. An economical rifle, the Pumpmaster takes 3 to 10 pumps to send BBs up to 625 fps and pellets up to 600 fps. The checkering on the grip and the indentations on the pump handle make it that much easier to get a grip and stay on target.
Ideal for plinking and target shooting. (Never shoot BBs at metal objects!) It's so light that you can shoot all day! Suitable for younger shooters (with adult supervision) and smaller adults.
Pellets are loaded into a 5-shot clip, while BBs have an 18-shot magazine, which is fed from the 200-shot reservoir. It comes with a fixed front sight, but you can get even more accuracy by mounting a scope or red dot on the 11mm dovetail.

Things I liked: Very light, easy to use quickly, stores many bb rounds, accurate for a bb air rifle.
Things I would have changed: Space cocking lever stop 1/8" away from barrel so it doesn't pinch your fingers between barrel and lever when cocking.
What others should know: Cock once before storage. My 40 year old 760 would still work today if I had followed this advise. Still got 30 years out of it.
Things I liked: Small, lightweight, and versatile with the ability to fire bbs or pellets. The 5 shot pellet clip sets this gun ahead of the pack in its price range when it comes to leading pellets, but the smoothbore barrel is not as accurate as say the 880 or the 2100. The 760 is easy to pump, and still reasonably accurate out to 30 feet or so and would be a great gun for a younger shooter moving up from a red ryder or model 25 type of airgun. The 760 is a target/plinker- not a pest shooter. This gun is for fun and backyard enjoyment, I do not believe it is powerful enough to humanely kill even little pests.
Things I would have changed: I cant find a thing I would change about this gun, especially for the price. The 5 shot pellet clip is an awesome addition that I wish was incorporated in other similar type airguns. As always, more metal and less plastic is a thing, but the construction of this gun is solid and I would believe with proper care this gun will last a lifetime.
What others should know: I made this gun my dedicated bb shooter because of the smoothbore barrel, although it does function well as a pellet gun. The 880 or 2100 would be better pellet guns for the price because of the accuracy of the rifled barrels and their power, but the 760 really is the best little plinker in the pack because of its lightweight and ease of use. Search the Pyramyd air site for kit deals that include ammo or scopes before buying just the gun- you wont be disappointed. Have fun and be SAFE!!
Things I liked: The 760 Pumpmaster is a little beast! I mounted a tactical holographic red dot on the dovetail rail and zeroed it in... feral chickens are no match at 20 - 25 yards! Great fun for plinking and pest control of small criiters. I bought two of them because it is such a great value!
Things I would have changed: Nothing
What others should know: This is an excellent rifle for your kids to learn about shooting and sighting in targets
Crosman states this is a 760 B , and is more powerful then the previous 760 . Is this true and what are the fps differences?
According to the FSP/FPE calculator my brand new 760 should be quite capable of killing a squirrel at 25 ft. with lead pellets. Why then, after two vital hits this morning, did the squirrels merely jump as if stung and run away?
I don't see the number of pumps the person used in that video. He did the Daisy 880, and the Crosman 760. His velocities both look way slow.
I did a quick search on youtube to look for a Crosman 760 chronograph video and of course it depends on the weight of your ammo, the results averaged in the 200-300 fps range. Here is the link to the video I am referencing. https://youtu.be/Rp3YPX5duHE
This gun would never be recommended for hunting.
I thought the newer 760's had a rifled bore... ? My old one from the 1070's was smooth bore.
The modern 760B has a smoothbore. The newer Crosman 664GT kit has 20" rifled barrel and shoots a little harder and looks almost exactly like a 760.
Mine from 1989 is rifled. I noticed they switched back to smooth bore at some point since then.
Well, I see the present-day specs say smooth bore...
