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.
