Things I liked:The Nitro Venom is all they say it is. Powerful, accurate, and gets quieter with use.
Things I would have changed:The scope is not the best so I installed a red dot sight and now the gun is super accurate and easy to acquire the sight picture.
What others should know:Buy it, you wont be disappointed.
Things I liked:In the hands feels more like a $300 rifle than a $150 rifle. I read ALL the reviews on this (and MANY other rifles) before choosing this one. This is, i truly believe, is the best made .22 cal Nitro Piston air rifle --FOR THE MONEY-- YES, you CAN buy a BETTER air rifle, but you will have to PAY MORE for it! I read the reviews & complaints about the trigger. Now, maybe just maybe it is because I an accustomed to shooting old military rifles and therefore I am used to the feeling of long pull "squishy" triggers, but to me this factory trigger was 100% OK. NOT a "great" trigger, by no means! But was WAY better than expected. The gun locks up very tight when closed, and accuracy seems to be "good enough" for it to have only 100 pellets through it. I know the accuracy will improve as the barrel gets broke in (250 - 400 shots to break in, as I understand it) but right out of the box I was keeping all shots with all 4 brands & weights of pellets inside the bottom of a 12oz. soda can at 30 yards. AFTER the barrel is broke in I will do a die-hard bench rest accuracy test with 8 or more different weights / brand of pellets and post a follow up review listing the results.
Things I would have changed:REMEMBER: This is a $150 rifle. NOT a $300 rifle! Many people say " I would change ABC into a XYZ and add a blah blah blah" not thinking when making their review that ALL THINGS they "Would Change" are ALREADY CHANGED on another model rifle,,,,,for MORE MONEY. So, lets get real here, what would I like to see changed that would keep the CURRENT PRICE of this rifle the same or less? 1) Sell the rifle for $25 - $30 LESS and they can LEAVE OUT the junky Center Point 3-9x X 32mm scope. The scope was a big disappointment. Sorry, it just is! Lucy for me, I had another much better scope that I put on this rifle, and will slap that Center Point onto some firearm that I trade off/sell sometime in the future. 2) A better trigger CAN BE MADE, WITHOUT costing any more money to Crosman. The triger on my $45 Crosman 760 Pumpmaster is better than the one they stuck on this $150 rifle. They DO know how to make a better trigger! 3) PLEASE leave off that goofy plastic muzzle break / silencer thing at the end of the barrel! I removed mine and it makes the rifle look more upscale and not so,,,,,,,,,,,,"CHEAP". 3) A metal trigger guard. It CAN'T cost THAT much more to make it out of metal! Event the $150 price point, I just don't see why Crosman could not use a blued steel trigger guard.
What others should know:Pyramyd Air's fast free shipping! Recieved rifle in 2 days! Customer service is 2nd to none!
Things I liked:Loads of power. It feels good in the hand. I really like the scope rail welded to the receiver.
Things I would have changed:Throw scope in the maybe use later bin.
What others should know:I tried to zero again today but no go. Scope just doesn't adjust. I mounted another scope I took off another rifle and its hitting the mark quite nicely. I ordered another scope and will just toss the stockone.
