  • Leslie from Canada asked:

    I am in Canada any idea where can you get the carry handle and the open sites. Also if you get a detuned version can you just not modify it to get the upgraded velocity?

    • Chevota from USA:

      Yes you can bump the velocity a good chunk by "fixing" it which isn't too hard, but with that stubby barrel it'll never see full power. Even the test PA did showed a massive power loss, so if you were ok with a regular full length barrel (like from a Venom or Vantage) you could get ~50% more power than PA did. It wouldn't look right but if you put a tube ~2"x 8" over the barrel it would look like a suppressor :) Here's the link to the parts list of the open sight model, then order said #'s from The Gravel Agency in Canada: https://tinyurl.com/y9xm4br2

    • Tyler from USA:

      If they were available, it would be from Crosman. Though, because it's a picatinny rail, I am sure you could find a legit AR sight set that would work.

  • Chris from USA asked:

    Chris again. Can this piece be used for backyard plinking at say, 50-90 feet. What type of a backboard should I use to prevent pellets from going into our composite yard fence? Thanks alot. Used the real thing, a customized AR-10 version in competitive combat shooting. Love this design. Mr. Stoner was a genius. Armalite made a beautiful AR10.

    • Chevota from USA:

      I use a large towel rolled up like a sleeping bag to catch pellets. This gun has a short barrel so it'll be much harder to cock than the other models, like Venom, Trail etc. Like takes the fun out target shooting hard.

  • Chris from USA asked:

    other sites state that any break barrel air rifles should never use a scope as the barrel becomes loose and you will never get true accuracy. Seems logical to me. I guess it depends upon the construction and quality of the build. Think of it. Time after time breaking the barrel and maybe cocking it on an angle may wear it down. Thoughts please?

    • Chevota from USA:

      It's loose from day one, but only because it's made in china for cheap. Quality brands don't really have that issue and are not enough of factor that you'd notice. The accuracy of this and similar chinese guns will be mostly other issues, but the looseness will contribute.

  • ALEJANDRO from USA asked:

    Can the flash hider be removed and if so, is it 1/2-28 threaded like the real ones ? Thanks.

    • Chevota from USA:

      I'm certain is it's part of the plastic barrel cover which is likely glued on. The guns Crosman does sell w/ threasd are M12x1.0 for B18 guns, which this is, and the NP2 used 1/2-20.

  • Joseph from USA asked:

    can this be bought without a scope but with a carry handle and open sights ???

    • Stanley from USA:

      No as is .

  • Joseph from USA asked:

    How difficult is it to break the barrel at 45 #

    • Tyler from USA:

      Breaking the barrel is easy. Just give the tip of the barrel a good whack (like a karate chop) with the hand to break it open.

  • Joseph from USA asked:

    How hard is it to load the piston? ( std term is bad language) I'm 75 and not 25 years old any more >>>

    • Tyler from USA:

      45 lbs

  • Peter from USA asked:

    Where can I find an MTR77 carry handle? I can't seem to find one on this sight?

    • Chevota from USA:

      Direct from Crosman. See link I posted above to parts list

  • Calvin from USA asked:

    Will a crosman shockwave fit inside of the ar15 body??

    • Chevota from USA:

      It'll no doubt fit inside, but the plastic body bolts to the extra tall Picitinny rail so if you want it to look normal the answer is no.

  • Francis Allen from USA asked:

    do you ship to the philippines?

    • Luis from USA:

      Yes

  • cj from USA asked:

    I left my nitro piston gun cocked for about a week. Will this affect velocity?

    • Tyler from USA:

      Unless a seal in the NP was compromised, it should not have any impact.

  • Bob Bitchin from USA asked:

    Can you swap the forward grip for a quad rail system?

    • Tyler from USA:

      No, it is specially made to work with the break barrel mechanism. A standard quad rail would not work.

  • cj from USA asked:

    If loaded with a hunting pellet, can I take a squirrel with a body shot?

    • Chevota from USA:

      According to PA testing it's an 11ftlb gun, which is imo thanks to the short barrel bc I've see this happen. Better to get a normal version like the Venom, Vantage, Titan etc, or NP2.

    • JON from USA:

      Sure, it's an 18 fpe gun, so it should be able to dispatch squirrel or wabbit sized game, the pellet you use is gonna matter. I'm partial to H+N hunter extremes or polymags for fur in .177 and this rifle will handle the weight of those pellets no sweat.

    • gerald from USA:

      Yes if hit in the Vidal's but head shots are always better if possible

  • cj from USA asked:

    does this gun come with the scope mounted?

    • Stanley from USA:

      No.

  • cj from USA asked:

    can I hunt squirrels accurately at around 25 yards?

    • JON from USA:

      What he said ......

    • gerald from USA:

      Yes if you find the right pellet for you gun and practice .as with all accuracy practice make perfect .

  • Jim from USA asked:

    Is this available with carry handle and front site?

    • Jose from USA:

      No, just the scope.

  • Shaun from USA asked:

    What is the diameter of the barrell?

    • Joseph from USA asked:

      Will this specific rifle kill arctic hare?

      • Ron from USA asked:

        What size Slip On Recoil Pad would work best with this air rifle?

        • Dalton from USA asked:

          I live in Canada and if you get a airgun with a velocity over 500 fps you must have a firearms licence, so if I order this gun will I be expecting to get detuned version or the same 1200 fps

          • Gregory from Canada:

            By the way, the detuned version of this rifle is actually rated for 495 with standard Crosman premiere pellets instead of alloy lightweight pellets like most of crosman's detuned airguns...my M4-177 is detuned and probably only shoots standard 7-8 grain pellets around 400 fps, which is disappointing...but this mtr77np kicks but for a detuned air rifle!

          • Gregory from Canada:

            You can't get a detuned version here...D&L airguns in Langley BC has a couple MTR77NP's in stock, but they aren't on their website so contact them and Kelley will hook you up...I just got one including tax and shipping for $255

        • kev from Canada asked:

          will this ship to Canada?

          • Dan the Man from USA:

            No, shoots over 500 feet per second.

          • Tyler from USA:

            No it will not.

        • joe from USA asked:

          what am i doing wrong i sighted 2 different mtr77 in with 5 diffent scopes and every time i take the gun out of my safe it shoots 3 inches low... remember 2 different mtr77 whats the problem

          • Brian from USA:

            if you have a loose grip on the rifle the pellets drop but if you keep a tight grip your gun should shoot just fine.

        • Chevota from USA asked:

          Anyone have velocity numbers with the pellet weight? I'm curious how much power is lost with the short barrel.

          • Kenneth from USA:

            The answer from Dan shows how we are all but lied to about velocity. This gun is advertised with a maximum of 1200fps and using H&N 5.56 grain lead free pellets it is just shy of the advertised 1200. I pulled out some pellets I have and found H&N 6.48 grain lead free pellets I bought to shoot inside without putting lead dust in the air. This 6.46gr pellet feels like a tiny cotton ball in my hand and the pellet used in the video Dan mentions is about 1 grain lighter. How about we customers make them advertise velocity with a realistic weight lead pellet we are likely to use. I doubt this gun could hit 900fps with a lead pellet with a back breeze. Thank you Robert for asking this question. I'm sick of inflated velocity numbers using super light pellets and not telling us that part. Ken W. from Massachusetts.

          • Dan the Man from USA:

            According to the video, 1,182 fps with H&N 5.56 lead free pellets.

        • danielcatt from USA asked:

          can I buy open sight kit for this rifle?

          • Charles from Canada:

            You can buy one with opens sights on a removable carry handle

        • danielcatt from USA asked:

          Scope is crap, tried red dot, with better results, .Any suggestions for after market open sights??

          • Tyler from USA:

            Most standard AR sights will work on it. Anything that can attach to a weaver/picatinny rail.
