Benefits of the Nitro Piston over a metal mainspring:
  • 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

Everyone needs a go-to gun for fun, plinking, eliminating the occasional invasive rodent and teaching others how to shoot. The Crosman Vantage air rifle fits that description perfectly. Since it comes with Crosman's Nitro Piston instead of a metal mainspring, it'll be ready to go whenever you need to grab it. Any weather, any time...any job.

Things I liked: I already owned 4 Vantages of the spring powered variety and tweaked the trigger and added a better scope to make the package a real nice one. I found the best pellet for that rifle and gave one to each of my nephew's kids. They are having a blast with those rifles and what powet they have. Now I wanted a Vantage with a Nitro Piston and a rifle that used the open sites. I found that the rifle shoots pretty far off as far as the sites go but I have to really break it in first and fine tune it. Buy the way, the best pellet is the Kodiac match 10.65 grain pellet to use in this rifle.

Things I would have changed: On all of the Vantages I owne so far, I have tweaked the trigger which makes it much nicer to shoot. It lessons the pull and the travel which gives you better accuracy and makes it easier to shoot. I just can't understand why Crossman can't make a better trigger for those less expensive rifles they produce.

What others should know: For the money, you can't buy a better rifle. I have owned 5 of them already and each one shoots differently and each one has to undergo some tweaking to get it on target. Power is really great wth each one. And hopefully you won't buy one that simply just can't be zeroed in with a scope or open sites. I beleive my Nitro Piston powered one would fall into this catagory if I mounted a scope on it but I am using it without a scope. For the money, you can't beat this rifle.

Things I liked: This rifle is a steal! I love the 22 cal version and should be an awesome small game hunting rifle. The Nitro piston can be cocked for long periods and colder weather is no problem. That works great for those late season small game hunts.

Things I would have changed: My only complaint is the trigger. That being said you can purchase a custom trigger for around $33 and you have a great rifle that shoots hard and can be used year round.

What others should know: Pyramyd Air is a great company. I would not hesitate to buy anything from them.

Things I liked: The heft and balance of the gun, very solid. I own and have shot many gunpowder long guns, but only have inexpensive Crosman pump guns, CO2 pistols and Gamo springers to compare airguns. Most of those triggers were far worse than this one. Accuracy out of the box was better than expected--quarter-sized 5-shot groups from sitting position at 15 yds using the open sights that came with the gun. (I only hedge the accuracy rating because of limited experience with the gun) Expect even better results at that range from a bench--and I'll be interested to see how it holds up at longer ranges. Might add a Williams rear peep sight instead of a scope, I've had good results with them on centerfire rifles. So far only used Crosman .22 14.3g pointed pellets. The trigger pull was long, so I shortened it using the adjusting screw. Acceptable for now. (It's not nearly as bad as some reviews led me to believe.) Nice to not have the 'sproing' and rebound of a spring!

Things I would have changed: Not much at this price point--sure, better triggers and rear sights would be nice, but I like the flexibility of choosing my own aftermarket enhancements.(And not paying for a cheap scope I wouldn't buy anyway)

What others should know: Cocking effort is robust, as should be expected for this power. Technique is more important than force. The gun is a bit quieter than I expected, a distinct airgun pop--acceptable for most backyards, unless you've got twitchy neighbors. One phonebook stops the .22 pellets, easy to contain. No dieseling from the first shot, and only required a few clicks to dial in windage and elevation. I think this gun is a great buy for a basic Nitro piston rifle. Time will tell how it holds up, but it's looking like a low risk investment to me.
