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: Overall it's a nice rifle for the money. Accuracy still not up to snuff after around 500 rounds. Trying different pellets and some shoot better than other but haven't found the right one yet. It does seem to favor the 21 grain Kodiaks. We'll see.

Things I would have changed: Better scope and soon. The one it came with is kind of dim for these old eyes. Maybe a little more second stage adjustment as it has quite a bit of travel.

What others should know: The open sights are great. Given a little time and patience I am pretty sure the accuracy will come around.

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.

  • 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.
