do the rear sights get in the way of the scopes optics?
Where is this gun made?
It is assembled in the US. Some parts may be made in China.
I am from canada and i do not have a liscence. Can Pyramid air Detune this gun to make it below 500 fps
This gun provides 0.0667788 fpe per grain per active spring coil. Without going into Hooks Law constant, as an example, take an 8.675 grain pellet, multiply by the 30 active coils and you get get approximately 17.38 fpe at 950 fps, so in order to get at 500 fps, said same pellet weight would give 4.815 fpe, which would mean you would have to cut 22 active coils, which would leave only 8 active coils plus the 2 end ones then you would need a spacer to take up the cut 22 coils length; in other words, it will cost you more to detune it than to buy a lower velocity rifle that shoots far more accurate than this one.
We do not de-tune airguns. You would have to get a low power model in Canada
why will some pellets work and others not. The ones that don't, I have to pull out, scrap and then try a new one? The pellets I bought with the rifle are Crossman Destroyer
Crosman, only one s .
How many holes or grooves does it have for scope stop pins? Are there any up front to restrain the front scope ring?
can the trigger be adjusted or creep removed??
While it is adjustable, you may not be able to remove all of the creep.
is this gun smooth bore
Read the specification.
Can I shoot BB's instead of pellets?
Can you leave this rifle cooked?
Being a springer i wouldn't leave it cocked even it was on safety .
Theres not much parts for it
What spring can i put to my optimus .22
Is the optimus the same as the quest 1000x in .177 cal. ? I have the 1000x and I have been watching you tube for videos on the quest 1000x, all I can fiend is foe the optimus. Can anyone tell me if the optimus and quest are basically the same rifles?
They are the same rifles.
What pellets run best for the .22 cal model?
You can try gamo master point, Crosman premier hollow points & domed, these worked well for mine but may not in all.
It varies from gun to gun, but typically the better quality pellets perform better. I like JSB and H&N at ~14.3gr, the Crosman Premier are good too. You really have to try as many as you can to see which the gun prefers because the next identical gun off the assy line may like a different one so experimenting is the only way to find the "best"
What are the differences between the Optimus and the Vantage? They seem like the same rifle.
The main diff is the stock. Like Tyler said the Vantage is also available with a nitro spring. While the Vantage doesn't come in .22, the 800X is more or less a Vantage in .22, same gun but lighter color stain. The barrels are interchangeable btw, and you can buy whichever barrel in whatever caliber you want as a part from Crosman :) This is also the same gun as the Phantom, Quest, 1000x Fury, TR77 and some others, the stock is the difference. Also some have open sights, some a muzzle brake. You can verify by checking the part numbers of the parts at the Crosman site
The Optimus comes in .177 and .22 where the Vantage only comes in .177. The Vantage also is available with a Nitro Piston. Other than that, and the name, they are the same.
