By Bruce from USA on 2021-01-01 09:22:56

Things I liked:

Well , this particular Crosman .177 caliber is definitely quieter than my friends .177 cal...which I shall not name. I really like the the fixed sights on the rifle in case I do not want to use the scope. Which I replaced with my old Weaver off my Marlin Glenfield .22 rifle. Minor adjustments to the sights out of the box at 35 yds. and I like the two stage adjustable trigger. I am looking forward to shooting with my grandchildren and small game hunting with it.

Things I would have changed:

I would have liked to see more efficient sound deadening for squirrel hunting especially but small game hunting in general.

What others should know:

For the money this pellet rifle is hard to beat. And Crosman is an old (over 90 years) company whose been focused on air powered guns for the whole time and are very reputable.

    Things I liked:

    Nice heavy rifle, seems well built

    Things I would have changed:

    Horrible front sight. So thin hard to get good sight picture. Makes a scope essential. I do not like scopes so I modified front sight to make it workable for me.

    What others should know:

    If you have eyesight issues buy with scope, no modifications of front sight from Crosman. Otherwise good rifle.

    What others should know:

    I'm not easily impressed with most air rifles, and I only got this because of the price point and a bit of curiosity, but it shoots and handles like a high end item. Trust me, been air gunning for over 50 years, and this one out of the box was fantastic. I still have to get the trigger dialed in to suit me, but after the preliminary barrel swab and tightening checks, it shot very well. Then, after a bit of tweaking of the rear sight, I was drilling beer cans at a measured 80 yards on my shooting range. The weight is not too much and the gun is not clumsy. I know I will try a scope on it later, for squirrels and small game. Oh yes, this thing shoots hard. With Crosman Magnums it shoots through both sides of a paint can at that 80 yards. Didn't chrony it yet, but it has to be kickin' it. My old Weirauch cost like 5 times this much, and doesn't shoot any better. If you throw in Pyramid's great service, you get way more than your money's worth. Thanks again, Pyramid.

    Things I liked:

    I'm very satisfied with the gun. It was close to dead on right out of the box at 10 yds. The weight is good. It hits harder than I expected.

    Things I would have changed:

    The rear adjustable sight moves side to side.

    Things I liked:

    Like this rifle a lot. Not to hard to cock. Nice scope came with it, and was not hard to install or sight in. Accurate and hits hard. Can have lots of fun without getting tired. I give it 5 STARS on all fronts.

    Things I would have changed:

    Not a thing.

    What others should know:

    Great rifle for the price. If you are still thinking about getting one, WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR, A BALLOON TO GO UP?

    Things I liked:

    I haven't had an air gun since my Crosman 760 in the 80s. However, I just moved and inherited an infestation of squirrels, and there are three different species of these buggers on my property (and in my house), not to mention deer mice and groundhogs. I looked into air guns and while I would have loved to drop money on an Edgun Leshiy or a similar gem, I wasn't enamored with the complexities of PCP, though I do like how quiet they are. That left something 1/3 of the price, maybe an underlever for fixed barrel accuracy, like a Weihrauch, Beeman, or RWS. In the COVID era, feeling the financial crush of these times, I kept moving the price range down. That moved me into break barrels. Something like the SIG ASP would be great, but I felt it was too loud. Finally I ended up with this Crosman Shockwave as it was cheap and fairly quiet. I'd rather not have a made in China gun, but here it is. So far so good. 90% of my shooting is inside of 40 yards, and for that it's accurate enough.

    Things I would have changed:

    Should NOT be made in the People's Republic of China. Metal elements on sight adjusters. Better trigger, as I feel most misses come from the heavy trigger, which causes pulling to one side. The cocking effort is good and the integrated baffle stays put, which is better than the little piece of plastic on the end of the Umarex Impact, which I sent right back to Pyramyd and they did an easy swap for this rifle (Thanks guys!). The sights are not as good as on the Umarex, and it offers a lot of left-right slop. I put Birchwood Casey orange paint on it, but it is what it is at this price point. I put a UTG Bug Buster scope on, but ended up sticking with open sights. Squirrels are incredibly tenacious and resilient. While I had several head or lethal body shots, I have also had as many misses, or as many shots they walked away from. For that reason I'm moving my ammo to JSB Ultra Shock Heavy Diablo 25.39gr and JSB Jumbo Beast Diablo 33.96gr. I now believe foot pounds of energy is the key.

    What others should know:

    I've had this rifle for 6 months and put Predator Polymag Shorts 15.89gr, Crosman Premier hollow point 14.3gr, H&N Terminator 16.36gr, and JSB Jumbo Heavy Diablo 18.13gr through it. They all shoot well. I have not put this through a chrony, but it hits with authority. For instance, If I hit mud from a 15-20 foot elevation, the mud jumps and there is a good size hole. It thwacks solid objects like fences pretty good, and goes through regular objects used for plinking. The nitro piston is a plus and it is fairly quiet, thought it is still in the medium loudness category. Without jumping into PCP, I'd love to get a similar gun in the low loudness category (Any suggestions? Some have said the Benjamin Trail NP XL is really quiet). Overall, this is a good, cheap-o varmint gun. It is no family heirloom, but on the plus side it doesn't need to be babied and is easily replaced. That said, I'd rather have any of the Walthers or SIGs or Wiehrauchs in a similar configuration. Maybe someday . . .

    Things I liked:

    Good feel and balance , excellent trigger . It is quiet . Can be made into excellent shooter , see below .

    Things I would have changed:

    Shroud on barrel twists after cocking several times. Needless to say this moves the front sight . I would NOT consider using the mechanical sights . The scope that came with the rifle is ok at best . SECRET , BUY A BUSHNELL BANNER 4X SCOPE ( or equivalent from Pyramyd ) and you will punch dime size groups from the bench at 10 yards in low light ( basement ) . Looking forward to shooting outdoors at 50 yards .

    What others should know:

    Amazing accuracy ! If you customize by purchasing a good scope . I enjoy shooting this rifle after mounting a better scope . Change out the scope it came with and buy a better one . You will be glad you did ! The scope rings it comes with are fine to use with a better scope one inch rings . FYI shooting H&N .22 cal @ 13.73gr wadcutter .

    mechanical sights are a joke. it wobbling. maybe if they make it from metal.....

    What others should know:

    this airgun is the gen 2 of the Crosman Shockwave. but it have not SBD Gold sound suppression and Nitro Piston Elite. it have QuietFire shrouded barrel ( i am not sure if it really works or is just for aspect) and Nitro Piston( not nitro Piston 2 or Nitro Piston Elite).take care of false advertising. the recoil is pretty strong, it kicks hard my scope. i will buy a zero recoil mount for that

    It has a pleasant appearance, with quality finishes and joints. It feels like a quality thing. I hope to enjoy it for a long time to come.

    Things I would have changed:

    mechanical sightis should be redone ..... as they are now you can only hit something with good luck.

    What others should know:

    I bought this weapon based on your description. According to the manufacturer, this rifle does not have Nitro Piston Elite but only Nitro Piston (not even Nitro Piston 2) and does not have SBD Gold sound suppression. Please make correct advertising
