    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:Very powerful and smooth with reasonable accuracy.
    Things I would have changed:Trigger has a very long and hard pull and isn't consistent.
    What others should know:The only reason I gave it a 1 star overall rating is because there isn't a 0 rating. After several months in storage I tried to use the rifle last week and it has no power at all. It will not penetrate a corrugated bow at 20 feet. When I accessed a parts manual on the Crosman site it shows a revision for the gas spring, piston seal assembly, and the breach seal. When I asked if the original parts were defective I was told they have not been revised and the original parts were not defective and it is not covered by warranty.. The rifle is 14 months old with approximately 200 rounds fired and has been well taken care of. After Crosman denied any responsibility I contacted Pyramid Air about purchasing parts. Although they claim to be a Crosman authorized service center they told me they had no parts and to call Crosman. With a little bit of assistance they could have made a customer for life, but needless to say I will not be doing business with either company again and the rifle is going into the dumpster where it belongs.

    Things I liked:This is one mean machine, This gun is a joy to shoot, I find it to be extremely powerful, even though it has the same power-plant as the Benji Trail, I find it to be more accurate, less heavy, have increased muzzle velocity over the 'Trail, as well as having a great look
    Things I would have changed:Not much at all, "If something aint broke, Don't fix it"
    What others should know:I've found that this gun has a pellet preference, when my gun was going through it's "break-in" period, I tried around 20 different pellet's from different makers, different weight's, pellet shape, and cost, everything from High-end H&N's, JSB's, RWS, Kovohute, Daisy's, Crosman, Skenco's, Gamo's, etc,. and what I found is in lead, at distances under 50 yd's Gamo Hunter's Came out on top(which really surprised me), with Kovohute "Standard's" in a close second, and at distances up to 100 yd's, Scenco Metal Tipped "Ultra Mag's" came out on top, with FX "SmoothTwist" pellet's coming in Second. I've only shot paper with it so far, but I have no doubt that this shooter will give great performence in the field. I found this gun to give you a hollow "thud" sound whenever you took a shot, So I took off the butt-pad, and filled the hollow cavity with "Memory" foam, and it took that sound away, leaving it with hardly any sound coming from the butt area at all. This is an Excellent Air Rifle, and I highly recommend it. Cheer's, Andy.

    Things I liked:This is a nicely made piece of equipment. I bought this as a re-manufactured, so I was getting a lower price than normal. Putting the scope on and the easy finger adjustments it gave me were better than expected(no screwdriver). Having the rubber on the end of the barrel, very nice to facilitate cocking, although I needed to give it a tap sometimes to break it. I like the smooth trigger pull, it feels fine to me, even though I can adjust it to my own liking. This is definitely quieter than my other spring piston. The zoom scope covers all the range I would expect to aim at. For what I've had so far it is excellent to shoot with. I couldn't tell that it had been a used gun when I received it, just the same I paid the extra ten $ to make sure they sent me what I was ordering.
    Things I would have changed:personally I am over 6' tall and few things fit me well, so I am satisfied with this design.
    What others should know:Some pellets were a little tough to place in the breech. I like that it was not loose, but it took some patience knowing some pellets needed to be worked in. maybe a pellet loader would help. I plan to get one the next time I order.
