Things I liked: Very simple operation, usable sights front & rear, can add scope and/or other accessories. 5 pellet magazine that will accommodate different size (length) pellets, nice magazine loading system. Light weight, accurate, decent power at max pump of 10. Relatively quiet for back yard.

Things I would have changed: Nothing for this price.

What others should know: Same as the Crossman MK 177 which is offered in tan. Obviously purchase a couple 4 pk's of magazines. Even having to pump for each shot, emptying a 5 pellet magazine goes quickly. Keep lubricated per the owners manual.

Things I liked: 5 pellet cartridge. Easy loading. Looks.

Things I would have changed: The sights.

What others should know: Personal experience: My first Bushmaster had to be returned due to a serious lack of power (faulty power plant) and was exchanged for another one. (thank you Pyramyd Air!) The new Crosman Bushmaster (rated at approx. 750 fps) was compared with my Daisy Powerline 880 (rated at approx. 700 fps), and found to be half as powerful -- sinking the pellets only half as deep as my Daisy in a block of wood at point blank range. Same pellets (two types), same distance, and same pump amounts were used for each rifle to compare. I was hoping for at least the same power as my Daisy, but did not expect HALF AS MUCH, even though the fps rating is higher in the Crosman! Thus I will not purchase a Crosman again due to my two experiences with poor power in their products that fall quite short of that advertised.

    Things I liked: Of all other crossman 177 series rifles I like this one the best. I filled the BB chamber to the max for weight and it helps to balance the somewhat heavy nose of the rifle . The trigger on mine was especially smooth and dime size groups at 25 feet are common and should be tighter once I can bench rest it. The operation of the rifle is odd because the bolt and mag strips operate on opposite sides of the receiver. It calls for a different way of handling the reloading process. None the less I love the way it feels in my hands and it's power and accuracy.

    Things I would have changed: Move bolt operation to opposite side.

    What others should know: I like pump rifles and this is my favorite among the crossman 177 series rifles all of which are very accurate. I put full loads of BB's in all of the 177 rifles for the added weight using a pen thru the feed hole to pack the BB's tighter.

    Things I liked: Cool looking. Rifled barrel and decent accuracy. Long picatinny top rail.

    Things I would have changed: The "cooling vent holes" on the handguard are in exactly the right/wrong position to make the fingers on your pumping hand sore after repeated pumping. Sight adjustment was an issue. Elevation is only via the front sight post and I had to unscrew it all the way up - to the point is was very wiggly. In the end, I chose to not use the Crosman sights and upgraded. The "handedness" of this rifle is awkward. The pellet feed is from right to left while the bolt cocking lever is on the left. This requires enough passing back and forth between hands for each shot that it kinda gets annoying. It would be cool if the stock had adjustable length of pull and/or folded. As it is, it's completely rigid.

    What others should know: I bought a 3-slot clamp-on pic rail riser and put it on the front "gas block" for added elevation to address the front sight post height issue. I needed to carefully hacksaw about 3/16" of the plastic "gas regulator" off to get the rail to fit. I also splurged and spent $20 for a set of front and rear metal folding sights (Amazon). With the boost from the pic rail and the new sights, I actually needed to grind about 1/16" off the front sight post to then lower it. This addition took some time and money, but adds to the cool factor and also makes the use of a red dot sight or optic really easy.
