Things I liked:

Wonderful balance and feel--like the 1377(.177 cal) I shot for years. The .22 is much quieter at 8 pumps than the .77 cal at 10 pumps. I've been target shooting at 10 yards and am happy with the groups and figure I can make them even better with practice. I haven't had a chance to shoot at 20-30 yards and am hoping the performance is the same. Not a bad value if you're not worried about the accuracy of the sights.

Things I would have changed:

Open sights are simple/cheap (metal screw into plastic base which tells you don't over-tighten or adjust frequently or you'll strip the plastic). That would be fine if the sights enabled adequate adjustments for accuracy. In my case, I maxed out on the possible elevation and windage adjustments and my groups were still 9" high and 9" to the right of the bulls eye at 10 yards. Sorta takes the fun out of shooting when you have to aim low and to the left of the target in the hope of hitting it.

What others should know:

The add-on options PyramydAir sells to fix the sight problem seem less than perfect to me (the product reviews on the website suggest the fixes may not work) and they wind up equal to the cost of the gun itself. I'm going to try to "file and glue" home-made fixes to see if I can get the sights adjusted. Goofy way to "fix" the problem but I suspect when you don't pay much for a gun there are going to be problems.

    Had one as a kid, found one similar (60s) on eBay; the new one is more powerful, pretty accurate and really like the bolt for cocking.

    Things I would have changed:

    Trigger is tough but on a bag helps with the accuracy.

    Things I liked:

    pump lever is better shaped than the older model, less likely to get your fingers pinched, stock grips are better shaped.

    Things I would have changed:

    I think a fiber optic front sight would be a good improvement, I added one to mine after carefully putting a small grove on the top of my front sight and putting a small amount of J B weld in the grove. works like a charm.

    What others should know:

    The one with the shoulder stock is a very good thing to have on this accurate little pistol.

    Things I liked:

    I specifically wanted a high quality multi-pump pistol. I had a 1377 back in the '90s and knew it to be pretty good. I couldn't find another option that seemed to be comparable. When I found the steel receiver available for it, I decided it would be good enough, and I am happy with what I received. The multi pump allows varying power, which is great for me, because I use both indoors and outdoors, for both target shooting and to kill small pests. At short distances, the number of pumps has little effect on point of impact, and it always groups well. I measured the following velocities with a chronograph, using 13.73 grain H&N flat sport pellets (faster than advertised): pumps # velocity (ft/s) 1 162 2 249 3 309 4 351 5 388 6 415 7 439 8 457 9 470 10 491 I have found 3 pumps is plenty for target shooting anything inside of 10 yards. 6 will do anything I want. I can shoot a 3-4" group at 25 yards with 6 pumps if I rest my hands on a bench.

    Things I would have changed:

    Provide a better factory trigger. A metal front sight would also be a big improvement.

    What others should know:

    Out of the box, the trigger felt pretty poor. I measured it with a trigger pull scale at 7 pounds. I spent about an hour and was able to make it tremendously better by polishing the interface between the trigger and the sear, and then changing the angle of the back of the sear, where it interfaces with the striker pin (using a file and a stone). I recommend this mod to anybody who is mechanically skilled - it's not that difficult. The hardest part of that job is if you let the safety pin detent spring/ball come apart. If you do (as I did), it will be very easy to lose either the ball or spring. If you can find them again, it pretty much takes three hands and a couple of pointed instruments to get them back in. If you're looking for a firearms-quality pellet pistol. Buy the steel receiver and dovetail rear sight (or optic), do this trigger job, and you will should be pleased. After trying several, I found pointed Daisy pellets actually provide the best accuracy under $15/tin.

    Things I liked:

    No CO2 required was the biggest selling point of the pistol. Its very accurate and easily adjustable. feels durable and is quite heavy in the hands. most of the gun is metal.

    Things I would have changed:

    as with the 2240 i wish the front and rear sights had a metal version and the pump lever made from wood but otherwise the gun is great. heavy trigger took a bit getting use to as this was my first gun of any type. better quality control on the sights that i will get into below....

    What others should know:

    the front sight was not centered and was off, it didnt look like it was shipping damage as the box was in perfect shape. the front sight is quite thick and could not be bent back with bare hands and had to use a pair of pliers to center it. that did fix the issue and after shooting some groups and adjusting the rear sight the gun shoots very accurately. the pump lever looks cheap but actually feels durable when using it. the lever also becomes a lot easier to pump after a few drops of oil and a few hundreds shots. it feels nice and smooth now and doesnt require superhero hands to reach 10 pumps anymore.

    Things I liked:

    The grip feels really good in my hand. Variable power is nice. Long barrel for a pistol. Balance feels good. I like the look of it. Being .22 caliber, the pellets are easier for my older fingers to handle. Great value.

    Things I would have changed:

    I put some bicycle inner tube bands on the grip because it is smooth and a little slick. The trigger pull is a stiff 6.5-7lbs. I am going to finger compress the trigger spring to lighten the pull a little.

    What others should know:

    This was my first purchase from Pyramyd Air. It was on my doorstep in 5 days and well packaged. I will definitely order from PA again. I had considered the .177 model for some time now but when I realized it came in .22 caliber, I had to get one. It is a little hard for my joint pained hands to pump it past 6 pumps. I have been pressing the pump handle on my thigh to finish the pumps when it gets difficult. I plan on making a holster for it at some point.

    What others should know:

    Keeping it simple, add the shoulder stock and flip the rear sight to peep. The accuracy of these pumpers are incredible out of the box, and if not a great pistol shooter no worries because the shoulder stock will hold you down on target. Excellent for small pest control if needed.

    These can be easily modded to get 10 ft/lbs on 12 pumps or better.

    Things I liked:

    I have owned a .177 version for 30 years or longer and it still looks and shoots like new so I decided to buy the .22 version to go along with it. Quality of the newer version isn't quite up to the old gun's standard but it's still a very nice, good shooting, powerful pistol that won't break the bank. Pyramid has it at as good a price as I have found anywhere so I recommend it to anyone looking for a fun-to-shoot plinker.

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing, really.

    What others should know:

    Not the smallest or lightest handgun out there, so it's probably best for older shooters.

    Things I liked:

    Price is hard to beat. Very powerful for an air pistol. Also surprisingly accurate. Has a nice, classic look. The sights are simple to use, even if it takes some finesse to get them adjusted.

    Things I would have changed:

    Trigger spring should be lighter. This wouldn't add to the cost of manufacture and would make it more pleasant to shoot out of the box. I'm guessing there's a safety reason for putting such a heavy spring into it.

    What others should know:

    If you do nothing else to it, replacing the trigger spring with a lighter one will vastly improve your grouping. It's an easy upgrade. This gun isn't horribly ammo finicky, but it does seem to perform best for me with pointed pellets in the 15 grain range (so far the Gamo Magnum 15.43 grain pointed has the best performance). I've found that sighting in with 3 pumps at 5 yards also has me sighted in pretty close at 30 yards with 10 pumps. There's a difference between this gun and my 1377 in that my 1377 doesn't seem to gain much from pumping beyond 10 (yes, I know the manual says not to), the 1322 gains significant velocity with 12 pumps over 10. Exactly how much I can't say since I don't have a chronograph, but pellets punch several mm deeper into a pine board at 5 yards.

    Things I liked:

    This Crossman Air Pistol is well made and is very accurate. I shot air guns when I was a boy in the 60's and it is just as fun now as it was then. It is also a good way to maintain my shooting skills in these days when firearm ammo is so expensive and hard to find, At least, for now, air is still free and available.

    Things I would have changed:

    I would pay extra for real wood grips. If the Steel Breech for the Crossman 1322 was $5.00 cheaper or FREE shipping I would buy one now.

    What others should know:

    Pyramid Air also had a good supply of the Pellets I wanted at a good price.

    Things I liked:

    Inexpensive, fairly accurate to 45 feet, don't need CO2 or compressor.

    Things I would have changed:

    Offer the P1322 with a steel breach, even at a slightly higher price.

    What others should know:

    For an inexpensive gun this little thing is accurate. I added the shoulder stock, steel breach, reflex sight and moderator. This is a very quiet, fun to shoot mini carabine now.

    Things I liked:

    I like the balance and the grip of this pistol. With the length of the barrel and cocking mechanism one would think it would be hard to hold on target, but it is not. The quality of the 1322 far exceeds the price point. It is a simple design that works well and delivers quite the punch when pumped ten times. Mine punches the inexpensive Crosman Premier 14.3 gr. pointed pellets through half inch plywood at 10 yards. That is plenty of power for small pest animal control and plinking fun. And the ability of this pistol to reliably produce small groups on target is very impressive.

    Things I would have changed:

    For the price of the 1322 you will get much more than you paid for, so I find it hard to imagine being unsatisfied with this pellet pistol. That is, unless you are the type of person that expects to buy a Ferrari for the price of a Hyundai.

    What others should know:

    There is really not much that I can say about the Crosman 1322 that hasn't been said before. The design of this pistol has a well proven history, tried and true. Yes there is a lot of plastic and inexpensive parts in this gun but they just serve to keep the weight and price down and do not affect the operation or the longevity. If you want a simple, effective, and proven pellet pistol the Crosman 1322 is a good choice.

    I purchased 2 of this Crosman model (1322). The factory sight at the tip of the barrel is set at the 11 o'clock position (not perfectly vertical), with no way to correct it. Apparently poor quality control at the factory. BOTH of the pellet guns were like this.
