How far and if you can kill a rabbit or other animal of the same size
If you are still and not walking around and making noise they may wander in to range. If you are able to shoot and hit targets 25-35 yards, no problem. Woodys World.
That really depends on how far you can hold a consistent 1" group with the rifle.
SORRY THATS IN 22 CALIBER. AT 950 FPS IS THAT WITH LEAD PELLETS
GUN IS RATED AT 950 FPS, IS THAT WITH LEAD PELLETS
I have seen some posts saying the Crosman Nitro Venom Air Rifle is a "scope killer"? Has anyone else had that problem of the rifle "burning" up air rifle scopes (might just be a bad reviewer comment)?
I have a Crosman Nitro Venom, had it several months, no scope issues so far. I believe Umarex Octanes No-Shox System is designed to address that.issue. There are a few air rifles with enough recoil that could be hard on a scope, even if you have upgraded. Woodys World.
Do you ship to Philippines?
Wich rings do you recomend for this rifle Thanks
Whatever your scope choice is, the rings that come with it are a match. Leaders/UTG rings are best on a Leapers scope. Theres too much misinformation out on this.
The rings that come with the scope should be the best match. Do not change them just because.
It comes with rings, but if you were looking to replace them, it would depend on your scope choice. Leapers/UTG rings are good quality and would work well.
Can you shoot the cleaning pellets through this or do you have to use a rod to push it through?
The thing that throws people off is that theses things are called cleaning pellets. What do you use pellets for? To shoot. The rod barrel cleaning kits are the best way to clean your barrel. After I have used the rod and patches and I have got the barrel squeaky clean, I will load three cleaning pellets and a flat head match pellet, shoot that load, gather the cleaning pellets and look at them to ascertain that the barrel is still clean. No, the cleaning pellets, used the way I described, is just an extra measure that I do.
I wouldn't recommend shooting cleaning pellets in this gun. A rod or something like the VFG cleaning pull through would be the way to go.
Are you able to shoot the cleaning pellets through this gun or do you have to use a rod to push it through?
I load 3 cleaning pellets followed by a flat match pellet into the breach. I then shoot them out. The cleaning pellets will not go 10 yards. Find them and look at them. Each of the 3 cleaning pellets will let you know how dirty the barrel was. If not satisfied use the rod. I do this after every shooting session which will be 50-100 shots. Also tighten all you bolts/screws after every session. Woodys World.
It's best to push a cleaning pellet through, not shooting it through. The cleaning pellets are for cleaning and not shooting as far as I have heard.
Is this gun co2 powered?
Break barrel single shot.
I am 14 and my friend has two air guns and we shoot them all the time. I have become really interested in air guns and want to get one for target shooting and hunting things like squirrel and maybe the occasional rabbit. But I don't know if I should get the .177 version or the .22 version for what I want to do. Can someone with expirience please help me decide. Also I heard things about these not being able to ship to Michigan what's that about and how can I get around it.
A very good choice for you would be the Gamo Big Cat 1250. Easy to cock, easy to handle, will take out squirrels and rabbits, not heavy, and very accurate with Crosman Premier pellets. Woodys World.
Start off with the .177. It will kill a rabbit or squirrel. will kill a rabbit or squirrel. Your Dad or Mom will have to purchase it. Get one that at least is rated 1200 fps with PBA pellets. It will say that on the box. Walmart will have the better price. Woodys World.
first off, you need to be 18 to BUY an airgun, but to get one in a state where they won't ship, you may want to just go to a walmart or dick's and pick something up there. as for caliber, if you're new, i would get .177 in something nice and easy to use that you can put a lot of rounds through, hone your skills on a target, and when you have gotten accurate to where you are hitting quarter size groups, THEN upgrade to a gun with some more power
My rubber ring from the front of the piston is dead. Where can I find the right ring to order. here is a pic: http://i.imgur.com/147asIc.jpg
It's called a main seal or piston seal. Crosman has it, or here; Crosman Benjamin Titan Piston Seal.... A better choice is no doubt this one; Piston Seal, Fits Gamo Whisper.... One from an Air Arms TX200 will fit as well. The oem seals on most inexpensive guns are trashed during install at the factory, but yours is excessive. It's the sharp edges inside the gun that cause it, so best to smooth those down before installing the new seal.
Which bipod would work best, I don't like the barrel clip on type any suggestions. Thanks in advance fellow Airgunners.
Look them up in Pyramyd Air accessory section. Woodys World.
Does this gun come with a sling??
No sling included.
I bought this setup mounted the scope and sighted in twice, tried 5 different types of pellets and am lucky to hit anywhere on a target with 5 shots at twenty yards. What am I doing wrong?
As Val has mentioned, and I am echoing, read Tom Gaylords 3-part article, Accuracy is not a given. Part 1 is on the barrel. Part 2 is on the projectile. Part 3 is on the sights. It is apparent that a LOT of airgunners have not read this very important information which will give you an understanding. EVERY airgunner should read this. Woodys World.
Often the barrels need some work, but some are fubar. I have info on the work the gun and barrel need if you want it: chevota at hotmail. You can also buy a new barrel which are ~$16 from Crosman.
Try reading this 3-part article and see if any of this might help: Airgun Accuracy
