Either i was sent old stock, or the air leaking problem is still persistent with this product.... Has it really ben fixed? Or did i get a dud?
If this turns out to be a "fixed version" im obligated to fix it myself. I feel its due to some odd shaped seal or the like.
does it still have the same first shot jamming issue that the C02 version has ??
Mine does have this issue, only when it is filled to the 2000psi mark or slightly over. Depending how much past the "overfill" point it will misfire 1-3 times...
No issues with jamming on mine
I have pump Venturi I use this to my Benjamin wildfire it cannot charge the there is leak coming out in magazine
Mine has a leaking issue, as everone else, in the same part/area. The only way i work around is to bleed out the guns tank complelty with the valve and keep shooting till there is absolutely no air. From there try and fill it to see if that helped. I have to bleed my tank every single refill or it leaks air...
Hi. Can you send to spain, (canary island)?
How can a wildfire that has zero psi be pumped up? Can it be done with a shoebox f10?
With either one ?
Can you mount a sling on this rifle
You'd have to install swivel studs into the stock, and being a synthetic, that may not work out very well
are they gona make ones that don't fail? returning my 4th one!
What kind of issues have you had?
Does any one know which pellet this gun is most accurate with?
When I tested, the gun shot H&N pellets really well. The Field Target Trophy pellets were good.
What is the CC volume of the air tank?
are there available front barrel bands that can be added to this rifle?
Not that we know of, as of right now
That would be a question for Crosman directly.
I have the 1077 with a wood stock. Will the stocks interchange?
The black plastic "fill strip" between the barrel and gas tube needs swapped as well, as the one for the plastic stock is tapered and the wood stock is parallel.
Yes, you need to bore hole for gauge and drill hole for degassing screw. Fits neatly.
What is the length of pull?
I currently own 1077 can I use the magazines on this1077
They are the same. So yes, you could use magazines from your 1077 in the Wildfire
can this gun be delivered in India and if can what will be the change in price ? i need a gun as a hobby and there are big macaque monkey which are pretty violent i don't want to kill or harm them very much but not want them harm any once specially big once do much damage i want a gun that has a kick to it will it work ?
No. It cannot be shipped at this time.
You say that there is not a cheaper way to fill these rifles but when I look on Amazon im seeing a few different PCP pumps that will do 4500 psi that are cheaper one of them starting at about 88 bucks and a couple of others just a little higher in price. Would you care to explain why we must buy your 200 dollar pcp pumps instead?
There is not a cheaper way that Pyramyd Air offers. That said, a hand pump at under $100 at this point would have me worried about quality before I ever use it. And of course, you could always pick up some of the name brand pumps or even a tank used for less than it's sold new. Just make sure you're being safe and smart when it comes to fill sources as that's a lot of pressure (even at 2000 psi instead of 3k).
Is there a conversion to lighten the trigger?
Not that I am familiar with
Is the single stage trigger set or adjustable pull? What weight pull?
the trigger pull is about 10 lbs.
It is not adjustable. The double action pull puts it around 8 lbs.
can I get a wildfire in 22
Not at this time.
Does it have a Solid barrel or it like 1077
The wildfire is basically the maximus (tank) with a 1077 frame/barrel.
Will this Wildfire have an auto-stop at 2000 psi when filling with a tank with which holds 4500 psi? . . . Or will it have to be monitored to avoid over-fill and possible damage?
No. You will need to watch the gauge on the rifle to make sure you do not over fill it.
can this be gotten with wooden stock?
Can i use a .177 BB instead of a pellet.
Only if you want to ruin you rifle. So no...
Yes, IF it's a .177 caliber LEAD Round Ball/BB. This rifle is not designed for steel .174 cal BBs.
No, it's a pellet gun
Someone below stated the velocity is not humane for squirrels. What about birds? Will the 800 fps be enough to hunt anything? I want more than a plinker?
If you don't know how much energy your gun produces and you have access to a crony you can use the Unit Conversion for Airgun Measurements, which can be found on most any product page on the Pyramydair.com site.
800 fps is plenty for squirrels. In fact, 700 fps at the muzzle in .177 with 9.3 grain pellets was still doing the job to 30 yards just before my CFX spring failed (it may have been failing already at that point). That was quite reliable on head and neck shots. Don't do gut shots with anything unless it can blow them to pieces too. Don't fall for the "penetration" nonsense. If wadcutters are the accurate pellet, use them. Besides, I find they often pass through the head and neck anyway (and sometimes the chest) and they do more damage than rounded and pointed pellets. Think what wadcutters do to paper--it's the same action in meat. You'll have to test the hollowpoints to see if they are expanding or at least acting like wadcutters, but the wadcutters are truly effective. 700 squirrels can't be wrong...I get just over 100 a year in my yard.
Can i use the same hand pump from my discovery rifle?
Why is this rifle not even shown on the crossman website? Just strikes me as odd perhaps too early a release?
Yes, early release
Will there be an advantage with accuracy or velocity over a standard 1077? It really just looks like it is shot count increased.
Air vs CO2, Air is stable and does not vary much shot to shot. Regular 1077 has blastic barrel liner, this model has a real barrel. Air shoots 100fps + under thsame conditions, pellet flight will have less drop at any given distance. The trigger will however never be great, so its not a target rifle to stack pellets through the same hole.
It will be more accurate since the POI shift will not exist. Air powered guns are not suffering from power decrease like CO2 guns. As you shoot CO2 powered guns the CO2 cools off and expands worse which leads to lower power which leads to POI being lower. This air powered Wildfire will not have that issue at all.
can u use a compressor to fill
If you use a special compressor, then yes: Air Venturi Air Compressor, Electric,...
can you use a compressor to fill the pcp rifle
If you use a special compressor like this one, then yes: Air Venturi Air Compressor, Electric,...
Is the stock hollow or solid?
Can the sights be removed?
You can remove on the 1077 to add a scope and/or suppressor. This appears to have the same sights.
What's the outside diameter of the barrel? How loud is it comparing to the Benjamin discovery or maximus? Can the trigger spring be changed?
1) OD is .315 inches. 2) Sounds just like the 1077, maybe a little bit louder, but less than discovery/maximus. 3) No
Do they have plans to produce a 22 caliber model in the future.
no word from Crosman on this.
This rifle is one penny shy of the $150 free shipping Pyramyd offers. Will they still ship it free at $149.99 or must we purchase something else to get free shipping?
You're going to need pellets. Problem solved
Pyramyd offers free snail mail for certain amounts under $150. Add it to the shopping cart and see for yourself! :-)
The pump cost more than the rifle, is there a cheaper way to fill this rifle.
Unfortunately not :( Pyramyd has a bundle deal setup for it.
Does the Wildfire use the same magazine as the 1177?
Yes, it does. See recommended accessories.
Is the trigger single or double action?
Where can i find a muzzlebreak for it
I have a muzzle break from TKO on my Maximus. I'm betting that they will be able to fit one to this too
at this point, I'm not aware of anyone making them. Maybe check the yellow or GTA forums.
Is the 800 fps figure with lead or alloy pellets?
As pointed out by Val and Tom, 7 gr at 800 fps gives about 10 fpe. If it will push heavier pellets to decent velocities, that number may go up. However, I can say 9.3 gr wadcutter at 700 fps is also 10 fpe and kills squirrels well. Read my answer above to Jesse's question. Accurate placement is the key.
That's just under 10 fpe. Not exactly hunting power but, it's going to be a great target rifle for my 7 year old.
7 grain pellets.
Why only 800fps? Um wondering if can be modded or adjusted.
I was mistaken, the first part of the trigger pull indexes the magazine and loads the pellet into the barrel.
I'm guessing that some of the air is being used to operate the action. It will be fun to see how it performs.
Won't know until they actually come out and people start getting into them
Based on the 1077 did they happen to make this dual-fuel capable?
ok clarifying. seems like a cross between 1077 and Discovery (which is dual fuel) and there is an adapter for paintball CO2. I could put CO2 in any PCP but that doesn't make it a good idea. So have they messed up the internals so you shouldn't and would it void the warranty?
Good question, if you can figure out to get CO2 into the tank, should be able to try.
So you have to pay for the rifle and then you have to purchase a pump? $149.99 plus $179.99? Am I correct?
Correct. Or a tank, or a compressor. Pyramyd has a bundle deal for them, I see here.
can i hunt with this gun? mainly squirrels with head shots
I'm going to disagree with Val. Read my answers to other questions above. If you have accurate placement you can kill them with head shots. It is better to put it further back in the brain than say the frontal lobe--you may need a follow up shot if you only give them a bad open head wound.
You should not. Would not be humane.
How do you charge it, I am not familiar with this tye of air rifle
Click on the PCP Hookup tab to see different air sources.
Where can i find a muzzlebreak to quite this baby down
It hardly needs to be quieted down. It's already quieter than my Maximus by quite a bit.
Not familiar with anyone currently.
Is there an improvement on the standard 1077 trigger pull of over 10lbs?
unfortunately standard 1077 trigger. But still a LOT of fun to shoot!
Can a PCP be filled via an air compressor? If not what are the other options?
not a regular shop compressor. Need a hand pump, or tank, or an HPA compressor. See recommended accessories or PCP Hookup tab.
What is the trigger weight? I know it's single stage, but how clean is the pull?
Same trigger as in 1077. You are indexing the magazine with each trigger pull, so it's relatively heavy.
Can this pcp be filled with a hand pump?
Easily. 60 shots from 2000 to 1000 psi and 40 pumps from my Benjamin hand pump to refill to 2000 psi.
Regular PCP hand pump - yes.
Is this made in the US, Bloomfield NY? (or is it made in China?)
As of right now (12-01-2017) this rifle is selling at Pyramyd Air for $99.99. What degree of quality do you think you're going to get in a PCP rifle at that price?, it's a cheap, fun toy, it's a dangerous toy but a toy anyway!, just use common sense at determining the quality of the Benjamin Wildfire, the theme here is "FUN", not qualify.
Built in America means it was put together in America, parts probably made elsewhere, probably as cheaply as possible in China.
Just got mine today and the box says "Built in America"...
Does anyone know how accurate this rifle is? Would like to get it for my son as an entry level FT rifle.
with the heavy trigger pull this might not be a good choice for FT. same trigger system as 1077 so it is Very heavy. my 9 year old granddaughter almost can't pull the trigger much less with any accuracy. It's a plinker, fun but that's it.
