Crosman's Optimus air rifle delivers authoritative knockdown power. This version comes with a CenterPoint 4x32 scope + mount. Take common garden pests such as rats, mice & rabbits. The scope will help you home in on your prey and increase accuracy. If you want to take slightly larger pests (possums, woodchucks, raccoons, etc.), select .22 caliber.

If you prefer to plink, this gun is up to it. Shoot at spinners and paper targets all day long. It's also great for killing soda cans!

Things I liked:1. This is one of the lightest springers out there (another one is the Hatsan 1000x). 2. I love the stock but wish it was a bit darker. 3. Open sights are pretty good. 4. Trigger is not bad. 5. Accurate. I can put one hole in bull's eye from 10 meters with open sights. 6. Powerful.
Things I would have changed:Just make the stock a little darker in color. Everything else is amazing with this gun. You get a lot more than you pay for in my opinion.
What others should know:1. It took between 500 and 1000 shots to break-in. 2. I also needed to clean the barrel to get to shoot accurately. 3. Artillery hold is very important with this gun.

Things I liked:Liked this gun right out of the box. Right from the first shot. Gun is light and cocks easy considering it's velocity. I bought it as a second gun to leave out back with the garden tools to take a few shots whenever I go out there. Not a tack driver but it's accuracy is good enough to keep me interested in shooting it.
Things I would have changed:Didn't like the scope. It's functional and will improve your accuracy but the sight picture is blurry around the edges. Replaced it with a Leapers 4X32 A.O. scope. It's the scope that knocked down my value rating. Would have liked to see the .22 version offered along side the .177 version without the scope.
What others should know:Had to adjust the open sight to it's max setting left to center my shots. I ran out of adjustment range to raise the shot to my liking. Not an issue for me because I had planned all along to mount a scope.

Things I liked:Just about everything. The price, the weight, and most certainly the accuracy. Even the looks are pleasing. It was on sale for an unheard of price of $89.95 and I just could not pass that up!
Things I would have changed:The included scope. It is adequate, but I immediately replaced it with a 3 X 9 X 40 AO of better quality. Also the trigger is not the greatest. Long, creepy, and a tad heavy. But despite it, I am able to get excellent accuracy!
What others should know:I bought this on a whim. The last thing I needed was another air gun, but the price was so low, and the advertised velocity of 1200/1000 for alloy/lead intrigued me.I figured it would not meet that, and was a cheap inaccurate gun and I would just return it! Wow, was I wrong! With 7.0 grain lead pellets I am averaging 1010 fps/10, and with the Crosman 4.? alloy pellets 1225 fps. Accuracy is excellent with tiny 1 hole groups benched at 10 meters. The most accurate springer I own!! It groups well with a wider range of pellets than any other air gun I own! So I will work on the trigger, and when that is up to par per my wishes, this will be a great gun! Actually already is, but will be greater, as then there will be NOTHING not to like about this gun!!

  • Dennis from USA asked:

    What pellets run best for the .22 cal model?

    • Chevota from USA:

      It varies from gun to gun, but typically the better quality pellets perform better. I like JSB and H&N at ~14.3gr, the Crosman Premier are good too. You really have to try as many as you can to see which the gun prefers because the next identical gun off the assy line may like a different one so experimenting is the only way to find the "best"

  • Dan from USA asked:

    What are the differences between the Optimus and the Vantage? They seem like the same rifle.

    • Todd from USA:

      The main diff is the stock. Like Tyler said the Vantage is also available with a nitro spring. While the Vantage doesn't come in .22, the 800X is more or less a Vantage in .22, same gun but lighter color stain. The barrels are interchangeable btw, and you can buy whichever barrel in whatever caliber you want as a part from Crosman :) This is also the same gun as the Phantom, Quest, 1000x Fury, TR77 and some others, the stock is the difference. Also some have open sights, some a muzzle brake. You can verify by checking the part numbers of the parts at the Crosman site

    • Tyler from USA:

      The Optimus comes in .177 and .22 where the Vantage only comes in .177. The Vantage also is available with a Nitro Piston. Other than that, and the name, they are the same.
