Does the TR77 have a hole for a scope stop pin in the receiver! It will move if not.
Does the stock actually slide or is it just for show ?
Just for show.
Is recoil sharp like on Gamo IGT rifles that cause the scope to move forward?
using a utg 3-12x44 long scope. what mounts are preferred on the crosman tr77. thanks
A one piece scope mount is always better on a break barrel rifle it helps the scope last longer. On a PCP theres no recoil so you could use whatever mount you want.
Based on my experience with the 3-9x32 UTG on the TR77NPS, am sure u should use high mounts. Consider the one piece Accushot, since it seems to be a very secure one on a dovetail, but check with PA and see what they advise.
How many lbs of cocking effort?
Definitely more than 30# on mine, but the short barrel is absolutely beneficial in handling and weight. Power and accuracy do not seem adversely affected. See my "customer review" for more.
A regular Crosman nitro with an 18-19" barrel is about 32 out of the box. This one says 12" barrel plus whatever it has on the tip. I'm guessing 40-45lbs. The short barrel is imo a bad gimmick that increases cocking effort and drops power so what's the point?
Around 30 pounds.
How much "fpe" on this rifle?
Exactly 16.1 using RWS 7.0gr, based on "10 for $10" from PA with mine. Heavier pellets, up to a point, would give a bit more.
Actually around 17-18. This thing is jacked up, loves 10.5-11.5 grain pellets.
With that short barrel probably 12 +-1.
Between 20 to 26 depending on the pellets your using.
