  • Deter from USA asked:

    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?

    • Deter from USA:

      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.

  • gary from USA asked:

    does it still have the same first shot jamming issue that the C02 version has ??

    • Deter from USA:

      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...

    • Tyler from USA:

      No issues with jamming on mine

  • Alan from USA asked:

    I have pump Venturi I use this to my Benjamin wildfire it cannot charge the there is leak coming out in magazine

    • Deter from USA:

      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...

  • MiguelFelipe from Spain asked:

    Hi. Can you send to spain, (canary island)?

    • Robert from USA asked:

      How can a wildfire that has zero psi be pumped up? Can it be done with a shoebox f10?

      • Stanley from USA:

        With either one ?

    • Garrett from USA asked:

      Can you mount a sling on this rifle

      • Tyler from USA:

        You'd have to install swivel studs into the stock, and being a synthetic, that may not work out very well

    • steve from USA asked:

      are they gona make ones that don't fail? returning my 4th one!

      • Tyler from USA:

        What kind of issues have you had?

    • pearl from USA asked:

      Does any one know which pellet this gun is most accurate with?

      • Tyler from USA:

        When I tested, the gun shot H&N pellets really well. The Field Target Trophy pellets were good.

    • Israel from USA asked:

      What is the CC volume of the air tank?

      • David from USA:

        135 CC

    • anthony from USA asked:

      are there available front barrel bands that can be added to this rifle?

      • David from USA:

        Not that we know of, as of right now

      • Tyler from USA:

        That would be a question for Crosman directly.

    • Dan from USA asked:

      I have the 1077 with a wood stock. Will the stocks interchange?

      • Daniel from USA:

        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.

      • Daniel from USA:

        Yes, you need to bore hole for gauge and drill hole for degassing screw. Fits neatly.

    • Jeremy from USA asked:

      What is the length of pull?

      • Tyler from USA:

        13"

    • Frank from USA asked:

      I currently own 1077 can I use the magazines on this1077

      • Tyler from USA:

        They are the same. So yes, you could use magazines from your 1077 in the Wildfire

    • Divyanshu from India asked:

      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 ?

      • Tyler from USA:

        No. It cannot be shipped at this time.

    • Daniel from USA asked:

      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?

      • Tyler from USA:

        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).

    • Paul from USA asked:

      Is there a conversion to lighten the trigger?

      • Tyler from USA:

        Not that I am familiar with

    • Lee from USA asked:

      Is the single stage trigger set or adjustable pull? What weight pull?

      • Armando from USA:

        the trigger pull is about 10 lbs.

      • Tyler from USA:

        It is not adjustable. The double action pull puts it around 8 lbs.

    • lonnie from USA asked:

      can I get a wildfire in 22

      • Tyler from USA:

        Not at this time.

    • tony from USA asked:

      Does it have a Solid barrel or it like 1077

      • David from USA:

        The wildfire is basically the maximus (tank) with a 1077 frame/barrel.

    • Bob from USA asked:

      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?

      • Tyler from USA:

        No. You will need to watch the gauge on the rifle to make sure you do not over fill it.

    • richard from USA asked:

      can this be gotten with wooden stock?

      • Val from USA:

        Not available.

    • johnny from USA asked:

      Can i use a .177 BB instead of a pellet.

      • Carlton from USA:

        Only if you want to ruin you rifle. So no...

      • walter shipman from USA:

        Yes, IF it's a .177 caliber LEAD Round Ball/BB. This rifle is not designed for steel .174 cal BBs.

      • Val from USA:

        No, it's a pellet gun

    • Jesse from USA asked:

      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?

      • Kenneth from USA:

        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.

      • Kenneth from USA:

        http://www.gatewaytoairguns.org/GTA/index.php?topic=27855.0

      • David from USA:

        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.

    • Jesse from USA asked:

      Can i use the same hand pump from my discovery rifle?

      • Val from USA:

        yes

    • Daniel from USA asked:

      Why is this rifle not even shown on the crossman website? Just strikes me as odd perhaps too early a release?

      • Val from USA:

        Yes, early release

    • Gerald from USA asked:

      Will there be an advantage with accuracy or velocity over a standard 1077? It really just looks like it is shot count increased.

      • Mark from USA:

        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.

      • Val from USA:

        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.

    • peter from Canada asked:

      can u use a compressor to fill

    • peter from Canada asked:

      can you use a compressor to fill the pcp rifle

    • Alford from USA asked:

      Is the stock hollow or solid?

      • Val from USA:

        hollow

    • Henry from USA asked:

      Can the sights be removed?

      • Carlton from USA:

        You can remove on the 1077 to add a scope and/or suppressor. This appears to have the same sights.

    • Henry from USA asked:

      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?

      • David from USA:

        1) OD is .315 inches. 2) Sounds just like the 1077, maybe a little bit louder, but less than discovery/maximus. 3) No

    • Gregory from USA asked:

      Do they have plans to produce a 22 caliber model in the future.

      • Val from USA:

        no word from Crosman on this.

    • Phillip from USA asked:

      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?

      • Tom from USA:

        You're going to need pellets. Problem solved

      • Val from USA:

        Pyramyd offers free snail mail for certain amounts under $150. Add it to the shopping cart and see for yourself! :-)

    • Robert from USA asked:

      The pump cost more than the rifle, is there a cheaper way to fill this rifle.

    • Carlton from USA asked:

      Does the Wildfire use the same magazine as the 1177?

      • Val from USA:

        Yes, it does. See recommended accessories.

    • Joel from USA asked:

      Is the trigger single or double action?

      • Tyler from USA:

        Double action

    • ali from USA asked:

      Where can i find a muzzlebreak for it

      • Tom from USA:

        I have a muzzle break from TKO on my Maximus. I'm betting that they will be able to fit one to this too

      • Tyler from USA:

        at this point, I'm not aware of anyone making them. Maybe check the yellow or GTA forums.

    • Chris from USA asked:

      Is the 800 fps figure with lead or alloy pellets?

      • Kenneth from USA:

        http://www.gatewaytoairguns.org/GTA/index.php?topic=27855.0

      • David from USA:

        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.

      • Tom from USA:

        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.

      • Val from USA:

        7 grain pellets.

    • Matthew from USA asked:

      Why only 800fps? Um wondering if can be modded or adjusted.

      • Tom from USA:

        I was mistaken, the first part of the trigger pull indexes the magazine and loads the pellet into the barrel.

      • Tom from USA:

        I'm guessing that some of the air is being used to operate the action. It will be fun to see how it performs.

      • Tyler from USA:

        Won't know until they actually come out and people start getting into them

    • Kris from USA asked:

      Based on the 1077 did they happen to make this dual-fuel capable?

      • Kris from USA:

        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?

      • Val from USA:

        Good question, if you can figure out to get CO2 into the tank, should be able to try.

    • William from USA asked:

      So you have to pay for the rifle and then you have to purchase a pump? $149.99 plus $179.99? Am I correct?

      • Val from USA:

        Correct. Or a tank, or a compressor. Pyramyd has a bundle deal for them, I see here.

    • cj from USA asked:

      can i hunt with this gun? mainly squirrels with head shots

      • David from USA:

        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.

      • Val from USA:

        You should not. Would not be humane.

    • ronald from USA asked:

      How do you charge it, I am not familiar with this tye of air rifle

      • Val from USA:

        Click on the PCP Hookup tab to see different air sources.

    • ali from USA asked:

      Where can i find a muzzlebreak to quite this baby down

      • Tom from USA:

        It hardly needs to be quieted down. It's already quieter than my Maximus by quite a bit.

      • Tyler from USA:

        Not familiar with anyone currently.

    • Douglas from USA asked:

      Is there an improvement on the standard 1077 trigger pull of over 10lbs?

      • Val from USA:

        unfortunately standard 1077 trigger. But still a LOT of fun to shoot!

    • Ronald from USA asked:

      Can a PCP be filled via an air compressor? If not what are the other options?

      • Val from USA:

        not a regular shop compressor. Need a hand pump, or tank, or an HPA compressor. See recommended accessories or PCP Hookup tab.

    • Jim from USA asked:

      What is the trigger weight? I know it's single stage, but how clean is the pull?

      • Val from USA:

        Same trigger as in 1077. You are indexing the magazine with each trigger pull, so it's relatively heavy.

    • Jon from USA asked:

      Can this pcp be filled with a hand pump?

      • Tom from USA:

        Easily. 60 shots from 2000 to 1000 psi and 40 pumps from my Benjamin hand pump to refill to 2000 psi.

      • Val from USA:

        Regular PCP hand pump - yes.

    • Jeff from USA asked:

      Is this made in the US, Bloomfield NY? (or is it made in China?)

      • Maurice from USA:

        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.

      • Maurice from USA:

        Built in America means it was put together in America, parts probably made elsewhere, probably as cheaply as possible in China.

      • Tom from USA:

        Just got mine today and the box says "Built in America"...

      • Val from USA:

        Yes,

    • Aaron from USA asked:

      Does anyone know how accurate this rifle is? Would like to get it for my son as an entry level FT rifle.

      • Anthony from USA:

        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.
