    Things I liked:

    As the others say, the overall feel of the gun is awesom. The accuracy with the regular sights is amazing. I have probably shot this gun over 3000 times this year, and still just as fun to shoot as when I first opened the box. For $100, this is probably the best deal I have ever seen for an airgun that preforms like this.

    Things I would have changed:

    If anything I don't like, it's the plastic sights and the scope. Don't get me wrong, it's not bad, but mine had a few deformites. But overall, I can easly live with it.

    What others should know:

    This gun is also great at hunting. Even if you don't hit it in it's head, the sheer power of this gun knocks the squirrels off the trees! Definitely a good all-around gun.

    Things I liked:

    PLEASE READ THIS. The barrel on both of my guns are accurate to make a dime sized group at 15yards. The action is rough at first, but It eventually gets better than the RWS 34. The wood in the stock is very nice, but I put some checkering on it. My first one has lasted my 4000 rounds (and still going), I just bought another one. THE POWER; my old one shoots a 10.5gr premier magnum at 760fps and a 7gr hobby at 980fps. The newer one shoots a 10.5 at 830fps and a 7gr hobby at 1020fps. The scope is great (clear, mil-dot and low profile).

    Things I would have changed:

    The shape of the stock (although comfortable) is not as sleek as the remmington summit. The trigger eventually breaks in.

    What others should know:

    You won't believe it but both of my storms have no barrel droop. Crosman made these guns with the same powerplant (so read their reviews); phantom 1000,remmington summit, sierra pro, remmington Genisese, and the Quest 1000.

    Things I liked:

    price, power, looks, nice finish on the blueing, nice hardwood stock, nice scope included

    Things I would have changed:

    maybe a little more attention to the chamber seal. mine had some paper behind it, that actually prevented the the barrel from locking up all the way. once I removed the paper and replaced the rubber seal, it locked up nicely.

    What others should know:

    At first, I didn't like the gun, I thought it was inaccurate, and had poor quality control, but realizing what you get for $100, it's actually an incredible value. My accuracy problem I think is due to the scope parralax, I was only about 20 feet from the target(due to my limited urban environment) but open sites work great. I tested about 10 differrent pellets, Beeman lead rounds and crosman destroyers were the most accurate. I'm sure better pellets would provide greater accuracy, but I didn't have any. .......Now that it's broken in, it's a pleasure to shoot. The first few shots were as loud as a .22, but now it sounds great. It will still go supersonic with the crosman lead free pellets (but not the gamo raptor! go figure!!)

    Things I liked:

    This was the first air gun I've ever bought and was definitely worth the 100 dollars. The gun has a very sturdy feel and the wood is of decent quality. The power behind the gun is immense, I used a 4ft x 4ft piece of cardboard to scope in my gun (took a few hrs) and had my trash can set behind it. Using 7.9g hollowpoint premier rounds from crosman, I was able to penetrate all the way through roughly nearly a cm of abs plastic. Definitely impressive.

    Things I would have changed:

    The scope rings as others have mentioned aren't they greatest. It takes a while to fully adjust everything. When mounting to the rail, be careful not to overtighten or else you might strip the threads. What I did was mount the bottom pieces first, placed the scope on put on the top halves of the scope mounts, n gradually tightened each of the top screws three turns at a time. My first couple shots after breaking it in were about 6 in left n 5 in high at 25 yds. After a lot of scope tuning I finally got it set.

    What others should know:

    The trigger can really throw your shots off. If you pull back and not actually fire, it does not fully reset. Aside I tuned my trigger with some molybdenum lube, it says not meant for sears, but to use it on a crappy sear/trigger, it made a ton of difference. Lastly, stay away from crosman destroyer rounds, they are of med-low quality and vary in size from pellet to pellet. Crosman premier hollowpoints seem to work the best.

    Things I liked:

    after this gun gets broken in it is pretty accurate for a $100 dollor gun.my wood stock came with no filler that i could see and was flawless.i dont have a chrony but i can tell it shoots pretty hard even with heavy ammo.

    Things I would have changed:

    for starters the trigger is horrible..at least on mine anyway.doyourself a favor and buy one of charlie datuna triggers...i did and its a different gun now.the scope on my gun would not focus at all..i tried turning the eye piece and ran out of room with adjustment so i removed it and put my 4x from my rws 52 i had laying around and problem was fixed.the sights should be metal and the front pin should be smaller.

    What others should know:

    be patient with this gun..ive put over 700 rounds and many hours in this gun.i can keep shots within a nickel at 25yds if i do my part.my gun likes jsb exacts 8.4g and jsb predator 8.2g.had some issues with barrel lockup problems..tighten scews/loctite.no more problems.its a good value for your money in my opinon.

    Things I liked:

    Good price for the performance. Powerful rifle.

    Things I would have changed:

    The rear sight and the scope rings. The Centerpoint scope it comes with is a surprisingly decent scope, however the rings aren't very secure. I believe the main problem is the tapered (tapered to a point) scope stop pin. It may hold for awhile, but it eventually creeps and sometimes gets to the point where it shears off. That process may also egg/mar your receiver a bit. It would be nice if just the stop pin was a straight solid one. You can always purchase an accushot 1-piece mount to go with this gun and use the 2-piece mounts it comes with for a different gun that doesn't require a stop pin.

    What others should know:

    For the price this gun is pretty decent. It shoots hard, comes with a decent scope and performs well overall. It can also take a GRT-III trigger if you want to add an inexpensive upgrade to it. A complete tune, or simple debur and lube can turn this gun into an excellent shooter.

    Things I liked:

    really good gun after break-in(500 to 1000 shots). Tweaks in real nice with patience. I'm nailing waterbugs @ 65 to 70ft. I quit shooting at bottles and started blasting off the caps...

    Things I would have changed:

    phillips screws to torx or hex. plastic sights to iron. better trigger, mines kind of rough. Maybe too new to tell.

    What others should know:

    keep stock screws tight ... about every 5 to 10 shots check em. The factory suggested "leak lock" BLUE. this involves removing the stock, not a difficult task...Due to the kick of the gun, they loosen very easily and straight shooting is IMPOSSIBLE. address this issue right out of the box..At first, the gun felt very heavy. After about a week or so, not heavy, -solid...

    What others should know:

    As others have already stated this gun is very loud at first. My first couple of rounds broke the sound barrier and sounded just like a .22lr. Crosman really redeemed themselves in my opinion with the Storm XT. It has lots of power and is very accurate. It does have a little recoil in case some of you are looking to get this for a youngster. But I wouldn't recommend for an inexperienced shooter. Just an overall great air rifle at a great price. By the way, mine doesn't really like wadcutters but shoots field points very well.

    Things I liked:

    ACCURACY! didn't take long at all to sight in with the scope and have made several head shots from 30-50 yards on squirrels. Then decided to really test out how accurate it was and was able to hit a 12"x12" target at 300 yards 5 shots in a row once I figured out how much the pellet drops. And it has plenty of stopping power. I was amazed with how much penetration I could get into chunks of ice. All the way through a 4" thick piece at 30 yards.

    Things I would have changed:

    Get rid of the cheap plastic sights and better trigger.

    What others should know:

    The first 5 shots are LOUD for an airgun, but then it gets silent after those. The scope mounts it comes with are acceptable but a Leapers one piece is a much better replacement. I should be getting a GRT III trigger soon and I'll letcha know even more then.

    Things I liked:

    Shoots extremely hard right out of the package. The slight kick of the gun. The smoke that comes out of the barrel when the gun shoots. The accuracy is phenominal. Very realistic feel and awesome sniper feeling when you mount the scope. The scope is awesome in my view and i haven't even had time to zero it in. Right out of the package i mounted the scope and it didn't have too bad of accuracy for not being zeroed in yet.

    Things I would have changed:

    To be honest.......absolutely nothing

    What others should know:

    If i were you i would buy some PBA raptors and some .177 round lead balls for some extreme hunting power and accuracy!

    Things I liked:

    Wood stock for $100, hi-viz style stock sights are very easy to see. Hits hard(1000fps) , scope is great. Everyone pissed and moaned about this scope. Mine is a center point and is MUCH better then the 3*9 *40 that came on my savage .17hmr which was a $375 real gun. comes with factory scope stop!

    Things I would have changed:

    trigger could be a little crisper. wood craftsman ship is very crude. any one that works with wood will see some unfinished raw wood by the break barrel area. The major parts you see and touch are nice just where the trigger bolts up and barrel breaks the wood cause be cut much cleaner. No big deal and something I will clean up when I put the GRTlll trigger in.

    What others should know:

    This is a EXCELLENT value for $100!!!! accuracy is stunning I can group a quarter size shots at 25 yards with Gamo match. Use your knee to break the barrel until it gets easy. I always wanted a wood stock break barrel and for the money I still cant believe this gun!! plan on buying a grtlll trigger and you will have $130 into a gun that will hang with $300+++dollar guns!

    I am not a shooter - fire a gun maybe once every decade - haven't touched a pellet gun in 30 years. An hour to read instructions, mount sight, and get everything aligned correctly on a paper target. Next hour, 3 menacing squirrels dispensed without any collateral damage. Now, that's a practical weapon.

    It is a very nice gun for the money you spend. It has a nice comfy oversized stock. The scope is alright once you get it completely adjusted. It is louder than pnematic guns but what did you expect. I wouldn't want to get shot with it. It hits hard baby.

    Things I would have changed:

    Take the rear sight off and let it soak in the garbage for eternity. The rings that came with my gun were defective the hole for the scope stop was tapped off center. One 2 minute e-mail to crosman and 2 days later a replacement was in my mailbox. The trigger is absolutley insane. Go ahead and let that soak with the rear sight. Get a GTR trigger. It is a snap to install and it is night and day compared to the stock trigger.

    Things I liked:

    Shape of stock. Light weight for size. Overall feel and finish. Relatively easy cocking effort.

    Things I would have changed:

    Stock open sights leave a lot to be desired. The problem is the rear sight which is made out of a very cheap plastic, with a ton of slop in the adustment mechanism. In my opinion, it is practically useless, but since this is scoped combo, it might explain this shortcoming. Stock trigger.

    What others should know:

    First off, I did not purchase this rifle through Pyramyd only due to its local availabilty. Other than the stock open sights, I am more than fairly pleased with this rifle. I have been to obtain appx. 1" groupings at appx. 35 yards with crosman premier 7.9 grain hollow points. This is with a BSA 3-12x44mm AO scope and a Beeman one piece mount and after approximatly a 750 shot break in period. I did not try the supplied scope, although it looks to be adequate for general plinking use. The supplied scope mounts do have a scope stop, which look to be compatible with the scope stop hole on the rifle . I did not try them however. Stock trigger has a very long, creepy, and rough travel. I am surpised at the groupings I am able to shoot despite the stock trigger. At twenty yards most shots would fit under a dime. I am going to try a trigger upgrade from charliedatuna. This should turn out to be a very pleasing rifle with the GRT III trigger. Other than the few shortcomings I have mentioned, I am pleased with this rifle and am on my way to becoming a Crosman fan. I feel this is a attractive package for the price and performance level.

    Things I liked:

    I like the fact that the barrel is all steal and it has a decent wood stalk, ready to be finished how I choose or to leave it as is. Its easy to remove the stalk from the mechanics, just 4 screws. Its got enough weight to it to deaden the recoil. I don't think it hits all that hard. I would have no problem shooting this all day. At first the barrel was difficult to open, I had to pop it over me knee to get the barrel to break open from a locked position. It seems to be loosening up some. It feels pretty comfortable in my hands and the open sights are clear and easy to use.

    Things I would have changed:

    I will be changing the scope on it. It has a decent scope but its a non AO and is probably parallaxed for 100 yards. If you are shooting at close range the parallax seems to be a problem. I actually shoot better groups with the open sights at 35 feet than I did with the scope. I'll keep the scope though, its a decent Center Point 3-9 variable and will work just fine on my little rim fire plinker. Also the trigger is no good, way to hard, way to much creep and it will play havoc with your accuracy. I put a GRT III on it and it changed this in to a sweet air rifle. It has plastic open sites but unless there abused I don't see any problem with them. The micrometer clicks for wind age and elevation feel a little week but work just fine over all.

    What others should know:

    For $100 this is a pretty good deal even with out the scope. Through in a GRT III trigger for $32 more and you have a nice set up. Ive only used crossman hallow points so far and with those I had no problem with 50 cent size 5 shot groups at 35 feet with open sites and a poor trigger. With a better scope, new trigger and finding the right pellet for this rifle I'm sure the groupings will get much better. Very nice plinker for the price with a new trigger. It feels very solid and if it holds up I will enjoy this rifle as a good all around sporter for many years. I see no problem using it on small game and pests comfortably up to 20-30 yards. With a decent scope, probably 50 yards and beyond. (My experience level: I shoot 4 position match with the local club 4-5 years, rim fire, 50 feet. Some hunting with 30-06 and bird hunting with 12 gauge. I'm 45 years old)

    Things I liked:

    All comments and star rating consider the price range and performance. So gun has plenty power for most any use, looks quite good and mine even has some grain figure in the buttstock--nice! It's easy to cock and great sight picture (even for 56 y.o. vision, is a size for med. to larger youth to adult, not heavy, mine gave 3-shot group covered with a penny with Crosman precision h.p.s and Gamo rockets, second group of Daisy covered with a quarter at 15 yards. This was after shooting approx. 25 pellets. Scope mounts were defective and a call to Crosman got a great response--new ones on the way. If it is durable, with average care, it's a GOOD buy.

    Things I would have changed:

    Make defective scope mount issue is resolved asap. For $100 Don't change anything!!

    What others should know:

    The rear and front sights do have plastic bodies and may not adjust as precisely as metal ones. But just like with any good firearm you must find your sighting and BE CAREFUL with it. OR you will spend some time readjusting before shooting. Sure some take more banging around during trips to the field/transit than other, but then again, some people shoot better than others too! If you're trying to get a good enjoyable, kinda attractive hunter/target/pest elimiator, here is one.
