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:This rifle is powerful and is supposedly meant to operate better than a spring-powered rifle.
Things I would have changed:The scope that comes with it is crap.
What others should know:If you plan to use this gun for any serious shooting (pest control, competition, etc.), get a better scope.

Things I liked:Easy to operate. Liked the rail for mounting the scope.
What others should know:Out of the box and installed the scope but could not get any kind of accuracy with it. Starting to sight it in at 10 yards and my groups were 6"-8". Checked everything and found that the two screws at the front of the stock were loose. I tightened them up but still was only getting 6" groups. I thought it may have been the scope, so I changed it with one from another rifle I have. Groups were still in the 6" range at 10 yards. No way you could use this to hunt garden pests with this kind of accuracy. I had to return it.

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.
