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 rifle has the potential to shoot very well. I can hit a dime nearly every shot at 20 yards.... if I can get a good trigger pull. The basic gun is solid. Just needs a better scope and trigger.

Things I would have changed: The scope is junk. And the trigger pull is way too long, and very heavy.

What others should know: I have shot about 1000 round thru the rifle.

Things I liked: Overall I like mine, it's a .22. This gun can be made very accurate and has plenty of power. It is easy to cock you can shoot it for a long time without feeling like you have gone to the gym. Once it was broken in (which basically means getting all the gunk out of the barrel) I found that it isn't too pellet choosy. Mine seems to shoot Gammo Magnums and 16gr Polymags very well.

Things I would have changed: I hate a gun that is not consistently accurate. I target shoot and hunt. I don't like wounding game and I don't enjoy fighting a gun to produce acceptable groupings on the range. Power is great but once you have enough power to do the job accuracy and shot placement are more important. Two things are needed to make this gun consistently accurate. First replace the scope that comes with it. As with most rifles in this price range the scope it not good. The one this rifle comes with is particularly bad. I put a BSA on it for $69 and it made a world of difference. I now have Leapers on it only because I shoot skunks and raccoons at night and wanted an illuminated reticle. Second and as important if not more is the trigger. Nothing improves the accuracy of a firearm more than a good trigger. This one is bad and makes it difficult to shoot well consistently. Replace it with a Charly Da Tuna for whatever it is (around $15 I think)

What others should know: If you do those two things you will have a powerful, accurate gun that you will really enjoy shooting. I understand they are trying to sell at a particular price point but for a few more dollars on the manufacturing side they could provide a decent trigger. I'm not expecting a great trigger for this price, I have an HW90 which comes with arguably one of the best triggers in an air rifle (or any rifle for that matter) but it's $450 more than this gun and that's without a scope. I would however like to see a trigger that is at least acceptable. None the less for the price of the rifle plus about $130 you can have a great shooting rifle (that basically puts you in the $300 range). Honestly if you don't want to spend the time or money for these upgrades you will never be really satisfied with this gun.

Things I liked: MY EXPERIENCE BUYING THIS GUN WAS GREAT. THE GUN TURNED OUT TO BE JUNK AND THE RETURN PROCESS WAS GOOD. BUT REPLACEMENT GUN WAS NOT IN STOCK AND I AM STILL WAITING FOR MY REPLACEMENT.

  • Berkley from USA asked:

    I am 14 and my friend has two air guns and we shoot them all the time. I have become really interested in air guns and want to get one for target shooting and hunting things like squirrel and maybe the occasional rabbit. But I don't know if I should get the .177 version or the .22 version for what I want to do. Can someone with expirience please help me decide. Also I heard things about these not being able to ship to Michigan what's that about and how can I get around it.

    • Quinn from USA:

      first off, you need to be 18 to BUY an airgun, but to get one in a state where they won't ship, you may want to just go to a walmart or dick's and pick something up there. as for caliber, if you're new, i would get .177 in something nice and easy to use that you can put a lot of rounds through, hone your skills on a target, and when you have gotten accurate to where you are hitting quarter size groups, THEN upgrade to a gun with some more power

  • William from Canada asked:
