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 Nitro Piston Technology:
  • 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 valuable aid to hunters. There's nothing worse than knowing your metal spring might be fatigued and not provide the power and energy you need to humanely dispatch your prey. With a gas piston, you'll always have the same power and never have to give it a second thought because the gas piston does not suffer from the same issues. Get either the .177 or the .22 Crosman Nitro Venom Dusk to shoot spinners, pop the heads off dandelions, kill tin cans or dispatch small garden pests. If you shoot rats, mice, chipmunks and rabbits, the .177 caliber will have sufficient power. For raccoons, possums and ground hogs, it's best to use the .22.

Things I liked:After doing countless hours of research on which rifle I was going to purchase, the Nitro Venom Dusk in .22 filled the bill. I am not new to airgunning and this rifles claims were just what I was looking for. Light weight compared to my Hatsan 125 .25, much less hold sensative, and surprisingly, much more accurate. After just 100 pellets through it the gun was printing cloverleafs at 50 yards. Amazingly accurate for a rifle in the mid $100 range. Blue locktite will need to be applied to the stock screws in order to maintain consistent accuracy. The cocking cycle on this gun is extremely smooth. The barrel was horribly dirty. That is to be expected though. This rifles favorite pellets thus far are the Jsb Exacts 15.89 grain and the H&N Field Target Trophies 14.66 grain. At 50 yards with both these pellets the accuracy is scary good. I am very pleased with the purchase of this rifle.
Things I would have changed:Absolutely nothing.
What others should know:When you receive this rifle and before you put any pellets through it, CLEAN the inside of the barrel thoroughly. Mine was very, very dirty. I noticed that no matter how tight you tighten the stock screws, after shooting 10-15 pellets they will become finger loose. I applied a liberal amount of Blue locktite to the stock screws and the issue was solved.

Things I liked:I wanted to own a gas piston gun and this fit the bill as far as price and function.
Things I would have changed:Nothing
What others should know:The gun I received seemed to be over-oiled and smoked even after 300 shots affecting consistent accuracy. I was determined to keep the gun and not send it back to PA for this problem. After reading many other owners posts on a reputable airgun site, I decided to take matters into my own hands, which voids warranty and dis-assemble the gun to clean out the excessive oil. The gun stopped smoking and shot more accurately within 20 shots after burning off the light-er lube I used in re-assembly. This gun appears to be one of those models the owner needs to "tinker" with to be a decent shooter. If you're not handy at the mechanics of the workings of an air rifle, probably should leave this gun to others who are not afraid to void warranty and tinker. As with most lower priced guns, the trigger and scope are useable.....(what you paid for). Upgrades make a definite improvement and you will have a better shooting, (still) low-er priced gun.

Things I liked:I like the weight and looks, seems solidly built, but included scope is not very good, Crosman replaced it with no hassle.
Things I would have changed:My choice of gun, accuracy is terrible, my Hatsun Stryker, and Crosman Fury2 are much better, scope was awful too, crosman replaced it, but I put on a BSA Contender which cost more than the gun, but accuracy did not improve, shoots fine for 3-5 shots then the next few hit very low, very inconsistent!!
What others should know:I wish I would have paid them to test this gun first, I wasted way more in pellets and time trying to get it figured out, I am contacting crosman to purchase a new seal as research has led me to the problem, would have retuned it but wife burned the outer shipping box.
