    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: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!!

    Things I liked:I have one in .177 cal. This is a very nice rifle, especially for the money. The weight and feel is very nice and if you modify the trigger, online "youtube" videos for that, or upgrade it, the trigger pull is comfortable enough. Also, the accuracy is exceptionally well in mine. Crosman Premier Hollow Points have been working well for me. I have been able to get 1 in. groups with mine at 35 yds. This was done with the included scope. I am certain with a much better scope, I could get 1/2 in. groups at 35 yds. I shoot 35 yds because that is the range that most of the blackbirds I target are at, in my yard. Also, I had no barrel droop in mine, at least not enough to where I could tell, such as in a different gun I own. Groupings at 20 yds are 1/2 in.
    Things I would have changed:The trigger out of the box is pretty much completely unpredictable, crosman really needs to do something about that, "second stage" way too long. Also, the pull weight is a little to much, but not horrible. The scope is not the best, but for the price, you really cant complain, its enough to get you shooting at some decent ranges. A weaver rail would be nice!
    What others should know:I gave the overall rating four stars because the trigger was undesirable, out of the box. The scope isn't the best, but for the price, your getting what you pay for. So, for value, I gave it a 5, because the gun is worth it. My gun took about 300 pellets before I started to get my accuracy, so be patient. For this reason, after breaking it in and achieving this accuracy, I gave it a 5 for accuracy. Screw down the scope mount screws very well, but don't strip them!!! Also, if you shooting in 15 degree weather, with some wind, your naturally going to have some accuracy issues. I say this because of comments I have read else where!

    • 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.
