    Nitro Piston powerplant

Crosman Nitro Venom Dusk

  • Breakbarrel
  • Gas piston
  • Single-shot
  • Weaver rail (no open sights)
  • 70% quieter than most other breakbarrels!
  • Muzzlebrake
  • Ambidextrous synthetic stock with grooves on forearm & grip
  • Dual raised cheekpieces
  • Incl. CenterPoint Optics 4x32 scope + mount (unmounted)


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: The overall feel of the rifle is amazing. Just by holding it you know you got a bad boy in your hands. Also, it actually looks even better in person. I highly recomend this rifle for those who are looking for the biggest bang for your buck.

Things I would have changed: Nothing, as the price is outstanding.

What others should know: Powerful, accurate gun.

Things I liked: Easy to cock, accurate, what more could you ask for? I have put at least 1000 pellets through mine so far and it is still shooting the Crosman 7.4gr Wadcutter and 7.5gr Destroyers around 1149 FPS developing around 23 foot pounds of energy. This rifle has all the power you will need in a .177 and it's accurate.

Things I would have changed: Obviously Crosman's garbage trigger system, Though Center Point do make good scopes and there is nothing wrong with the scope that is bundled with this rifle. I would have bundled it with their 3-9x40AO scope that comes with the Benjamin Trail NP and NPXL series. That is a great scope!

What others should know: Make sure you clean the barrel before firing, Make sure all the screws are tight. Install a CDT GTXII trigger

Things I liked: This is a fantastic air rifle! Very high quality and the gas piston works great. I haven't had any problems with this gun. High quality scope too.

Things I would have changed: nothing

What others should know: Overtime the scope may slide backwards in the rings due to the recoil from shooting. I recommend buying rings with a stronger grip to solve this problem.

    is the scope that it comes with a good one, or would you suggest getting a better one?

    • Stanley from USA:

      Typically gun/ scope combos are not very good , some say they are some say no ? Personally go with a better quality scope . Hawk, or UTG . Its your decision ?
