    If you shoot a lightweight pellet so its velocity exceeds the speed of sound, it could result in your pellet breaking the sound barrier and the gun being louder than expected! The speed of sound depends on humidity, temperature and altitude. Generally speaking, it's between 1,060 fps and 1,115 fps.

    Here are the benefits of the Nitro Piston:
    • Smoother cocking
    • Smoother shooting
    • No spring torque
    • No spring fatigue, even if you leave it cocked for hours
    • Functions perfectly in cold weather
    • Lasts longer than a metal spring

    The Nitro Piston Technology has proven to be a real plus for people who hunt with air rifles. You'll never have to worry when you cock your gun if your spring is broken or canted (bent) and losing power. Hunt pest birds, rabbits, squirrels, chipmunks, nutria, rats and mice with the Crosman Nitro Venom air rifle.

    Things I liked:The fit and finish on my .22 version are excellent. The scope was crap, but I installed it on my spare Ruger 10/22 about a year ago and it's performed surprisingly well. It must not be an airgun scope at all, as it won't even pretend to hold zero on the Crosman. I did the washer mod on my trigger and it's like night and day. Essentially free and produces a wonderful pull with a clean break. This is a big rifle, as in comparable to a centerfire bolt action in size. I appreciate its heft, but it does get heavy after awhile in the field. I think accuracy, after proper break in, is stellar for a rifle at this price point. Mine will shoot consistently around 3/8" five-shot groups at 10 meters with several different pellets. RWS Meisterkugeln, Pro Mag 16gr polymer tip, and Daisy Quicksilver pointed field pellets, to name the three I'm currently working with.
    Things I would have changed:Just stop with the scope, Crosman. It's an embarrassment. So is your stock trigger, but I'm certain your legal team won't afford much leeway to do better. Why does it take at least 500 shots to settle this rifle down? I can only guess the barrel is a bit rough to start with. Your pellets are quite the embarrassment, as well. On of my friends suggested he could chew strips of lead wire and produce more consistent projectiles than what we've found in your tins. Some fall into the chamber while some will hardly start. Skirt thickness was found to be wildly varying in the four tins we have on hand. Still, I would suggest purchasers of this rifle buy 500 of these or something similar for break in use.
    What others should know:Prepare for an extended break in period before the rifle settles down and starts shooting consistently. About 5-600 shots seems to do the trick. When new, I was struggling to hold five shots on a target the size of a softball at 10 meters. Order a suitable scope and rings when you order the rifle. I'm using an Accushot 3-12 with side focus, a 30mm tube, and a mil-dot reticle. I'm very pleased with its performance so far, although the reticle is quite a bit thicker than I prefer. I bought an assortment of pellets for testing that covered mostly the entire range of weights available for the .22 and my rifle clearly prefers lighter pellets. I was hoping to use heavier pellets like the Crow Magnum but anything over about 16-17 grains gets pretty wild downrange. Still, penetration is unreal. You may have to upgrade your pellet trap after buying a Nitro Venom! In spite of the rifle's shortcomings, it's definitely a winner.

    Things I liked:Weaver rail, stock, sound moderation, accuracy.
    Things I would have changed:Maybe a better trigger, but that all comes at a cost.
    What others should know:Mine shoots very well with RWS superdome and Meisterklugen. Found it to be very accurate out to at least 30 yards, does well from rest too.

    Things I liked:The weaver mount, the accuracy, and overall a wonderful airgun!
    Things I would have changed:The center point scope is nice, but its underpowered for this fine gun. Also the stock, IO redid the stock on mine, and it came out beautiful. They use a nice piece of beach wood, but the dull finish hides its beauty.
    What others should know:Remember this is a springer, so you have to hold the gun loosely or it will throw off the accuracy. I'd also get the .22 version, simply because its more powerful, and is more desirable for resale. Great air gun, I recommend this gun to all my friends.

    • Wayne from USA asked:

      Which bipod would work best, I don't like the barrel clip on type any suggestions. Thanks in advance fellow Airgunners.

      • Dan the Man from USA:

        A monopod.

    • Marcos from USA asked:

      Does this gun come with a sling??

      • Stanley from USA:

        No sling included.

    • Michael from USA asked:

      I bought this setup mounted the scope and sighted in twice, tried 5 different types of pellets and am lucky to hit anywhere on a target with 5 shots at twenty yards. What am I doing wrong?

      • Chevota from USA:

        Often the barrels need some work, but some are fubar. I have info on the work the gun and barrel need if you want it: chevota at hotmail. You can also buy a new barrel which are ~$16 from Crosman.
