Things I liked:

I bought this here and I am very glad for the purchase. I really like the way it looks and feels. It is a good sized pistol and that seems to aid in the ability to aim better and get good grouping on the shots. I ordered extra clips which I highly suggest doing or you'll spend a lot of time loading. I loaded 6 clips, 3 w/ max penetration- 3 w/ max expansion Gamo pellets, took an empty 20 oz. can,(fairly thick aluminum), filled it with styrofoam, placed it about 35 ft. away and literally cut the can right in half before emptying my 4th clip. That was after sighting in the pistol's windage and elevation. I feel the following explains this gun well: Easy to insert and switch CO2 cartridges Once extra clips are filled, switching them is quick After sighting, it is accurate and consistent Rifled barrel and single/double action trigger Comfortable to hold, easy to sight and inexpensive

Things I would have changed:

I wouldn't change anything about this model.

Things I liked:

Looks

Things I would have changed:

Installing the CO-2 cartridge was difficult with the little screw tab to tighten. That Tab broke off for me.

What others should know:

Redesign how to tighten the CO-2 cartridge. The little handle does not allow enough purchase to tighten the CO-2 cartridge by hand and if you use a pliers it can easily break like mine did.

    Wouldn't change a thing.

    Things I liked:

    It's ok, no where close to the old Crosman 357's they made back in my day... I bought it because I remember having them back 40 years or so ago... Back then they were powerhouses, now days they have half the power! I remember Rabbit, Squirrel, and Chipmunk hunting with this gun when I was a kid, these won't even go into a pellet tin at 10 yards now.. So I'm extremely disappointed, time and technology, is sposta "improve" guns, not take power away... But my daughter, and grandson likes it, so I guess that's all that matters... Still fun to shoot, even though hunting with it is not a option now unfortunately...

    Things I would have changed:

    Go back 30 to 40 years ago, and start making them exact guns again! Use to be able to smell the Co2 after each shot, and they had massive power, even kicked back then.... I believe they use to even get more shots per Co2, so I dunno what has changed, the Co2's or the gun.....

    What others should know:

    Iffen your old like me and remember the power of the gun back in the day, don't buy it now, you'll be very disappointed as I was... After saying that, iffen your younger, or don't have one of these back then, and wanna 10 yard paper puncher, then it's a great gun... But iffen you wanna 10 yard target gun I'd buy the Beemen P17 for half the price, and its a amazing gun, will shoot same hole groups @10 yards!

    Things I liked:

    Good feel in the hand. Enough weight to steady it. Easy to sight-in. I did 10 meters( about 35 feet) and hit tight (Quarter size) groups in the 10-ring after just a couple of adjustments. The clip is great, easy to load. Advise to push the pellet down a little just below surface. There's a bit of a detent that seems just right. Don't have a chrono, but the first 20 shots or so are hard hitting, and absolutely accurate. And it's a terrific value.

    Things I would have changed:

    Paint the sights! I did that myself, and it totally made it so much easier to sight the pistol. A little more info on best type of pellets to use. (I use the Crosman hollow points.)

    What others should know:

    The gun is on Amazon, but Amazon won't ship to certain states (I.m in WA). For no really valid reason. Pyramid does, but, of course, there is the shipping charge. I contacted Amazon customer service and voiced my displeasure at having to purchase the pistol elsewhere and pay a shipping charge. Amazon gave me a $5.00 courtesy credit.

    Things I liked:

    Very solid feeling gun,it has a pretty nice trigger better than most of the air pistols I've tried as of late. With in 7 yards the gin is very accurate, once you get beyond that it a little bit more difficult to keep accurate. The installation of a red dot really changed that for me,and is very accurate to 10 yards with a sighting device on it.

    Things I would have changed:

    I wish they would color the front post white or some other color, if there was a way to make the co2 last just a little longer that would be nice. It eats them up for power in about 3 mags the 4th mag is just so so.

    What others should know:

    Pretty good little rat and small rodent remover within 10 yards .

    Things I liked:

    Price point, the Vigilante represents an outstanding value. Seriously impressive accuracy & precision. Smooth mechanicals, both single and double action trigger pull. Handling; it balances and handles nicely for its size. Sights are very good, even though they are plastic. The adjustable rear sight is easy to adjust; gives a great sight picture. It could be a bit heavier. It's fairly intuitive to learn the manual of arms for this CO2 revolver. CO2 consumption is minimal.

    Things I would have changed:

    Make the plastic grips a bit more durable; they may break easily. The manual safety is next to useless; either get rid of it or make it less obtrusive. Contrasting color front sight. These are nitpicking, I'm increasingly liking the Vigante with every range session.

    What others should know:

    I've shot high end metallic cartridge handguns & high end air pistols. The Vigilante is one heck of a value! Amazing accuracy with pellets (bore is rifled, steel BB's will damage it). Precision rivals my Crosman 1377 and my Beeman P1; the P1 is one precise air pistol! I also have a Crosman 38-T in .22; this CO2 revolver was awesome! I rebuilt it 2x before I turned 21; l learned handgun shooting with it! In its own way, the Vigilante rivals the 38-T.

    Things I liked:

    Only accurate guns interest me. This gun is pretty accurate especially considering the price range. It has a rifled barrel. It is fun to shoot. The magazine revolves and the 6 cylinder chamber stays still, so you get a 10 shot pistol. I have not shot bbs only pellets. The gun gave me 60 shots per CO2 cylinder, so that is impressive. Hits pretty good for a CO2 gun. I shoot this as single action for more accuracy.

    Things I would have changed:

    I think Crossman designed this for volume sales at a low price point. Unfortunately, such factors drive production, so we end up with an inexpensive all plastic gun. I would have gladly spent another $100 to get an all metal real replica gun. Crossman does have a chrome metal 357 pistol, but alas it has a smooth barrel, so not much accuracy there. The sights did have to be adjusted left to right reasonably far, which means this gun will only be accurate in a small distance window. I set mine for 15 feet, that is my basement range.

    Things I liked:

    It's a GREAT cheap pistol! It hits hard, and is very accurate once you find the RIGHT pellet. Me, I'm happy with the Daisy.177 pointed pellet. I don't even buy BBs. I weighed the Daisy pellet ( part#40087-000) they are fairly consistent 7.7 to 7.9 . I tried heavier 10.3 Crosman PIRANHAS .They hit HARD, but to many fly-aways. The pistol is covered in plastic but it's metal underneath and feels good /balance. It's fun to shoot. Breaking in the magazine takes a couple hundred rounds they are very tight. I'd buy it again. This is a good one for the money. I got no real complaints with it. IT'S A GREAT FUN PLINKING PISTOL!

    Things I would have changed:

    Buy a dozen extra mags. Oil them until they're broke in.

    Things I liked:

    /very well made revolver. Yes it is mostly polymer, not steel, but is has a good heft and form factor. It is surprisingly accurate at 15 yards with Meisterkugeln Rifle pellets, but so far does not care for others. I don't shoot it with BBs, although it's nice that it came with that mag too. The accessory rail underneath the barrel is a very nice touch, since I am using it for night tree rat shooting. Irons are decently adjustable, then you just make the laser line up with the iron sight POI. For the price:performance, I am extremely happy with this gun. I have many higher-end air pistols but this one actually delivers a lot of value for the price.

    Things I would have changed:

    Trigger weight... I shoot single action only, and I am used to old military guns with heavy triggers, but any adjustment or mitigation would have been appreciated. I don't think it really needed the rear crossbar safety (it is a simple D/A or S/A revolver) but I suppose lawyers made them keep it. Unnecessary cost and mechanics. With they had put this cost and effort into trigger adjustment instead. The pushbutton for the tip down barrel seems iffy, while I have not had a problem with it yet, it seems the most likely thing to fail in the future.

    What others should know:

    I ordered extra mag cylinders after receiving this, they are cheap and you might as well get them all at once. And lots and lots of CO2 carts.

    Things I liked:

    Great value for an inexpensive gun. Weights almost 2lbs, so it has a nice feel in your hands. I have 40 feet in my basement to practice and it's very accurate considering the price. I got extra plastic clips and it's really easy to load and it rotates clean. If you have a real revolver I would highly recommend this for home practice. Ran through 30 cartridges so far.

    Things I would have changed:

    It's a bit loud. I can't use it in my backyard, we checked and you can hear it five houses up the block.

    What others should know:

    After about 300 shots with the Crosman Hollow Points I tried the Wadcutter. It jammed on me multiple times and the problem went away as soon I switched back.
