Please clarify the following between the info on Pyramyd Air and the Crosman box/user manual (this inquiry replaces my previous question): 1. Pyramyd Air: 3 - 10 pumps vs. Crosman 3 - 8 pumps 2. Pyramyd Air: 800 fps vs. Crosman 900 fps.
3-8 is correct. Again, PA is using the BB and alloy velocity while the 900 fps crosman uses is what they achieved with alloy pellets.
1. The Bushmaster box states that it is 900 fps max, whereas this site states (in several places) that it is 800 fps max. Which is more accurate (I suspect the box is too exaggerated)? I do not have access to a meter to make a test myself, but a 100 fps difference in stats is considerable! (I realize that using different pellets/bbs makes a difference, but I assume that a max speed was attempted by both the manufacturer and external testers, so if the results are that different, I had to ask why the large discrepancy?)
Crosman states 900 fps with alloy ammo,PA lists the weight with lead and BBs only.
Is the barrel rifled?
Will these be offered in "desert tan" also ?
The Crossman MK 177 is offered in tan as well as black. They are the same.. . . .in fact, type in Crossman MK 177 and the Bushmaster pops up. Same specs on both. I have both.
Just wondering what the difference is between this one and the MK-177. Thanks
I have both. . . ..177 in tan and Bushmaster in black. They are the same. . . .specs and all.
What you just described would be the Crosman Torrent SX and/or the Recruit (these replaced the Model 66), not the MK-177. See crosman.com
The MK-177 is a 18 round BB / 5 round pellet capacity , this one is 300 round BB / 5 round pellet capacity . The MK-177 includes a scope and an adjustable buttpad. FPS is lower at 660 compared to the bushmaster at 800 FPS , weight is about the same with the MK-177 weighing in 3.75 lbs vs 3.5 lbs.. The bushmaster is 10 dollars more in price otherwise very similar.Both made by Crosman.
