Things I liked:

Nice compact frame. Good weight and "feel" overall. The metal in the magazine and bolt/blowback give it just the right amount of weight. The plastic is beefy, seems like it will take some abuse without cracking or breaking. It is a cheap red dot, but it does the job. After sighting it in, we were getting one inch groups at ten yards using Umarex Precision Steel BBs 5.1 grains. In semi, of course. That is not far, but we will see how it does after several hundred rounds go down the barrel. And they will. In full auto this thing rocks! I like it better than my friend's DPMS. So does my wife. She is wanting to get one in all black. This breaks down just like the real steel. Pull the pin by the charging handle, and pivot to get access to the charging and bolt assemblies. Easy access to the breach end of the barrel to remove any bb that might get stuck. We did not have any problems, but only shot 150 or so before changing co2. Did not want to push it...

Things I would have changed:

Provide a second magazine with this package. At $50.00 for a spare, this is ridiculous. It cost what, ten bucks for the Taiwanese to make these? In full auto, it unloads in less than 4 seconds. A spare mag (or 4) is essential!

What others should know:

As soon as you get it, pull the break down pin and separate both halves of the receiver. There was a lot of gunk around the blowback assembly on mine. The first time I pulled the charging handle, it did not want to latch back in place. Probably preservative, but it was excessive. Same with the inside of the barrel. Had to run a dozen patches down it before they came out clean.

Things I liked:

BUILT TO FAIL! The bolt catch will eventually snap and after contacting Crosman for a 25 cent part, knowing they use the same part in two of their other full auto BB guns, meaning they should have plenty of them..... Crosman acts like they cant get a hold of one. I bought 4 magazines at $50 each and two of the SBRs which this R1 is with a mock muzzle break instead of a mock suppressor at $200 each for a total of $400 and Crosman cant send out a 25 cent part.

    Things I liked:

    Most everything, the fact that pretty much every attachment for the AR fits it. Feels and looks like a cartridge firing weapon. Full auto is almost to much fun.

    Things I would have changed:

    Larger bb reservoir, 22 rounds is not nearly enough. Should be 80 rounds, that's about all you get from the two fully charged co2 cylinders.

    What others should know:

    Again I didn't get credited for my purchase. I would have a lot of bull's eye bucks if they would credit me for my purchases. I've made around 8 purchases and been credited for one buy!

    Full auto is almost to much fun! Worth every penny.

    Things I would have changed:

    Definitely needs a much larger capacity in the magazine for bb's. 22 rounds isn't nearly enough. As soon as you pull the trigger the magazine is empty should at least be 100 plus, it says 1400 rounds a minute, but only able to shoot 22 please make a larger clip, it'd fun to let loose a couple hundred rounds in a blink of an eye.

    What others should know:

    Buy a lot of bb's and co2

    Things I liked:

    The gun looks good and handles well. Right out of box after a round or two hitting a can at 20 feet was no problem, not just me my son did the same. The full auto is a blast! This thing is alot of fun.

    Things I would have changed:

    25 rounds in the magazine? We would all like a couple hundred rounds. Maybe they will offer something in the future. I recommend oiling this gun before using it will operate much better. Treat it as any gun and keep it clean and lubricated,

    What others should know:

    Make sure that the spring feed in the mag is fully compressed and locked while loading BBs. If it isn't you can get BBs in the spring and you need to remove them. This is not a centerfire gun and don't expect it to shoot like one.

    I Love the selector switch NOW THATS FUN But it DONT LASTE LONG Also the blowback and the weight I expected it to be light but No its got some Gerth!

    Things I would have changed:

    Put a bigger cylinder inside stock bigger capacity bb's LOTs of bb's //// Offer a site feature other than the halo-graphic one that it comes with? why not laser or rail open sights ?

    What others should know:

    Have some patience on lining up the cover on the magazine the tabs are plastic when the co2 are loaded it must move the cover some ? Also My halo site once I mounted it just pass the ejector was very close to being accurate

    Things I liked:

    A lot of fun without another $200 tax stamp. The weight and size is perfect for practicing, and without the cost of a full auto M16. Also without burning through a lot of expensive ammo. I would reccomend this to anyone looking for a fun backyard full auto experience.

    Things I would have changed:

    A better trigger pull. This one is heavy.

    What others should know:

    You can't expect an unrifled barrel to be as accurate as as a rifled barrel. However, at 30 feet, it will spread the bullseye of a 25 yard handgun target. It will also destroy all those invading aluminum cans!

    Things I liked:

    Fun to shoot. On full auto it will empty the 25-round magazine in less than a second. Accuracy is okay, seems to be a bit better with heavier lead BBs (smart shot)

    Things I would have changed:

    Very plasticky. Almost the entire thing is polymer. I would be willing to pay double for the same thing made of aluminum, or even pot metal at least.

    What others should know:

    The polymer construction and finish is a bit rough around the edges, but the full-auto fun factor kind of makes up for it. The red dot sight included is very low, and I needed to mount it on top of a riser to use it comfortably.

    Things I liked:

    I bought this gun to help with training my son on gun safety and use in the backyard since ammo is scarce and expensive right now. We have really enjoyed being able to go in the backyard whenever we want and he has become very good at proper handling and care.

    Things I would have changed:

    I wish it had better regulation/consistency on the CO2 pressure. Also, it would be great to have a higher capacity of bbs.

    What others should know:

    Although much of this gun is plastic, it feels very durable and well worth the buy. My favorite gun for the price!

    Things I would have changed:

    For $200+ I would have liked an all metal upper and lower receiver and guard rails...I would have made the mag 30 rounds and included iron sights and a riser for the red dot sight...I would also have liked an all black option

    What others should know:

    This gun is tons of fun! The plastic is robust and doesn't feel cheap or flimsy. Buy this gun, you won't Be disappointed.

    Things I liked:

    Everything,quite accurate for a bb gun.

    Things I would have changed:

    Maybe a smaller more precise dot.

    What others should know:

    At first I thought something was wrong with mine. When I load the c02 I have to tighten them enough to pierce,then back it off till it starts to leak,then just snug it. If i tighten the c02 too much it somehow cuts off the flow of gas and after a few shots the gun acts like it has no c02. When done right I can get 70+ shot on 1 c02.

    Things I liked:

    Well made high quality feel. Functions like the firearm counterpart. Very good accuracy for a BB rifle, which tend to drift on shot pattern a good bit. I fitted with a 3x30 scope and a suppressor and I can consistently hit a soda can at about 70 feet away.

    Things I would have changed:

    This rifle is a co2 hog. Buy lots of co2. You get about 5 mags (125 shots) of firing on 2 co2s before the gun gets weak on power and unpredictable. 25 BB shots per mag goes very quickly especially full auto. For more enjoyment buy the 300 round capacity speed loading mag. I did and its great. Still 25 shots at a time but you reload with the pull of a lever in 3 secs. That makes this gun much much better.

    What others should know:

    This is not for hunting. Too slow for that. This is a plinking and target gun designed for fun and sport shooting. For that it does a great job. Full auto capabilities are great but just a showpiece.

    Things I would have changed:

    make a better magazine that utilizes both co2 cylinders. I am 6'1 and the stock is at least an inch and a half short when fully extended

    What others should know:

    Found a U tube video of a guy fixing the right co2 cylinder problem. The comments below the video indicate others have experienced the same problem. One comment indicated that Crosman was waiting on a new supply of mags. People are returning their mags to Daisy. Daisy knows they have a problem

    Things I liked:

    Things I would have changed:

    The picatinni rail edges are too sharp.

    What others should know:

    Mine worked fine in semi-auto mode, but struggled in full auto. After only the third magazine in full auto, the barrel actually shook loose(!!) and rendered the gun inoperable. As this happened past the 30-day Pyramyd return period, I have to now pay to ship it to Crosman directly for repair. I would not buy this again.

    Things I liked:

    Very fun gun to shoot. Full auto, blowback, built well and looks like the real deal. Plenty of room for accessories / attachments. Overall a quality air rifle.

    Things I would have changed:

    Because gun does not come with iron sights and a red dot sight. It takes some time to mount and zero your rifle in. Having it already mounted and sighted in out the box would be a little more user friendly. Bigger magazine would hurt.

    What others should know:

    Red dot sight did not come with battery. Speed loader works fairly well, using bb gun oil or WD40 helps feed the bb's out. Don't put more than 25 bb's in the magazine, could jam or shoot doubles even on semi auto from my Exp.

    Things I liked:

    It works! My son and I ran about five mags through ours before it ran out of CO2 without a hiccup. It is very accurate in semi and full auto. The rifle handles like the real deal. It is amazing that you can get something this fun for this price. Dumping a mag into a sub 1" group in a couple of seconds is awesome!

    Things I would have changed:

    It might be just mine, but the trigger pull is heavy. The red dot sits too low for me to use it easily but it works and it is easy to adjust zero with the included allen wrench. The magazine follower and spring does not lock open for loading, which is a significant PITA. The included plastic and flexy BB loader helps address this problem, but contributes issues of its own, namely not reliably feeding Crosman Copperhead (recommended for use in this rifle by Crosman) or Umarex BBs. I ended up hand feeding BBs into the mag, which is slow and annoying. Another brand of BB may work better and I have oiled the loader, which will hopefully result in smoother operation. I am still glad to have this rifle: we love it.

    What others should know:

    The magazine does not drop free in spite of having a functioning M16/AR15 type magazine release. This is actually a good thing, as the magazine is heavy and contains two CO2 cylinders and some important hardware. You don't want this magazine hitting the ground at full speed. No speed loading practice with this rifle. Hey Crosman, how about a M-14, G-3, Steyr AUG and Uzi Pro SMG?
