By James from USA on 2011-05-05 12:14:59

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.

    Things I liked:

    great gun lots of fun to shoot I find it very acurate just point and shoot as fast as you can pull the trigger i get about 40 to 50 shots out of a cartige of co2

    Things I would have changed:

    the grips should fit better feel to loose

    What others should know:

    Things I liked:

    Very accurate. 10 shot clip, Balance feels good. Fun for casual shooting.

    Things I would have changed:

    The grips seem to be the major complaint which I have to agee with. Crosman hides the powerlet but their grips tend to be lose. Seems this way with all four Crosmans I own.

    What others should know:

    One great air pistol. Super accurate, smooth trigger when the hammer is cocked. Love the 10 shot clip, buy the extras as you can easily get 50 shots out of the powerlet. Balance for a none target pistol is great. Mounted a red dot sight and it is almost impossible to miss at 30-50 ft.. Not super powerful so I can safely shoot it in the basement. Not all that loud either so shooting out doors isn't drawing a lot of attention. I thought it was going to be too large for my small hands but the grip fits fine. This turned out to be one fun gun to shoot for targets and casual plinking. Great gun!

    Things I liked:

    This is my first pellet pistol, and in my opinion it was worth the wait. The pistol is light and accurate. The CO2 lasted longer than everybody has said so far. The first three rounds are a little high, but then the next 50-70 rounds are pretty consistent after that it starts to drop off. I shoot the cheapest pellets I can find, and at 10 yards I can keep a 3/8 in group (using a sandbag) and an average of a 1 1/4in standing (all ten rounds).

    Things I would have changed:

    The plastic handles are not the best, and will pinch you if you are not careful. They also need to make a speed loader for it the clips take a while to load. Shipping could have been a little faster.

    What others should know:

    Buy extra pellets you run through them fast. Make sure you do not grab the handles to snap them back together.Using the thumb and first finger worked the best for me. Also make sure the nut for the CO2 is flipped to the side otherwise the handle will fall off. Buy a couple extra clips it only comes with one.

    Things I liked:

    I really liked the feel of this gun. It has some realistic heft to it which gives it a nice stable character when firing. The aim on mine was fairly true and needed little adjustment. Some air pistols of this price range usually have a trigger that I gringe at every time I pull the it. Not this gun. The trigger has a relitively short travel and isn't gritty or sticky. I would say the fps rating is about spot on. I shot a few hunderd wad cutters at a 10M target and the holes were pretty clean. The clips are one of my favorite parts of this gun. 10 shots! Buy a few extra before you check out, you'll be glad you did as this will fire as fast as yo can pull the trigger. You can store the extra clips in an empty pellet tin!

    Things I would have changed:

    Although most of the gun is nice and solid, I'm not a huge fan of the grips. Though comfortable, they are plastic and both have to come off to replace the Co2. Not a great big deal but just sort of a personal thing.

    What others should know:

    As I said above, get extra clips. This gun will fire as fast as you can pull the trigger and nobody likes to spend half the time loading. Don't judge the accuracy of this gun, o any for that matter, until you've put a few tins of pellets through it. Like any good relationship, the pellets and the gun need time to get to know one another

    Things I liked:

    Lots of bang for a litttle buck. Reasonably accurate with nice power. Full metal (except for the handle casing which is plastic)

    Things I would have changed:

    The Co2 holder in the handle makes noise because of a lose part. It doesn't pose any danger at all. It just clicks and it's annoying sometimes..

    What others should know:

    I got little puny fingers and the trigger's a bit heavy and the hammer was hard to pull back at first

    Things I liked:

    Price, Single/Double action, Power, Fun factor

    Things I would have changed:

    Make it a bit quieter. Include more than one mag. I liked the older version with the fake wood grips better.

    What others should know:

    This gun is a lot of fun to shoot and is pretty accurate. Its a great choice for plinking and backyard target shooting. Not for small hands though. I am a big guy and the grips are huge in my hands.

    4.0 4.0

    Things I liked:

    it's cheap, the look is nice, and it has decent power. what is there to not like about this gun? my hands are big so i like that the grip is a good fit for me too. i can wrap my hand around it nicely.

    Things I would have changed:

    the plastic handle where the co2 tank is placed. i dont know about other guns, but since the day i got it, it's been loose and shaky. i recommend for the people that have this same problem to just wrap tape around it, and replace the tape every time you need to change the c02 tank.

    What others should know:

    this gun is fairly heavy. it's not light. it would be hard to shoot with one hand, because the trigger is hard and it's actually a pretty big gun.

  • 4.0 4.0

    4.0 4.0

    Things I liked:

    when i first got the gun it was everything i expected. it has a metal gear box and a very strong plastic barrel. the gun is great to have and is only 50 dollar which i a fair price. this gun looks real and feels it too.

    Things I would have changed:

    the handle on the gun is plastic and you need to take off both side of the handle to put the c02 tank in there, when i put the pieces back on there it was a little lose but overall stil sturdy, dont let this stop you from buying the gun its stil amazing and a great handgun

    What others should know:

    buy this gun for the money its great to have.

    Things I liked:

    Everything. Hits HARD. Doesn't jam. Single & Double Action. Low price. Accurate.

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing. Maybe a smaller version for youths.

    What others should know:

    This is a big pistol, not for kids. I have shot several different type pellets and never had any jams. This is a powerful pistol, especially when using lightweight pellets like PBA Raptors. Powerlet is easy to load. Very accurate. I have LOTS of airguns and I'm very satisfied with this pistol. This is the best deal out there for a co2 pellet pistol.

  • 5.0 5.0

    5.0 5.0

    5.0 5.0

    Things I liked:

    The price! Surprising accuracy (I get 3/8" groups at 15' using a rest). Surprising power. Surprising build quality. Just a couple tidbits you might not pick up from reading these helpful reviews. Most of this gun is some plastic polymer. The steel barrel is a fairly thin walled cylinder free floating in a plastic barrel housing. The rail above the barrel has a groove to accept dovetail mounts. The action, trigger and hammer are a steel unit that fits in a surrounding plastic mold, part of which is shaped like a cylinder. This is a solid piece, the cylinder does not rotate, just the 10 round magazine sitting in front of the cylinder rotates. The fake cylinder is the only part that gives the gun a "toy" look. Now.... to those complaining about the grips, GET A GRIP! A set of wood grips costs more than this gun! This thing is an absolute marvel selling for under $50 and the grips are nice! They are not sloppy, at least when new. The trigger is firm but crisp. The adjustable rear sight is functional.

    Things I would have changed:

    Absolutely nothing. I'm amazed they can produce these for under $50.

    What others should know:

    Just get one. If you don't like it you don't like guns. Make it two and be amazed at what under $50 buys from Crosman.

  • 5.0 5.0

    4.0 4.0

    Things I liked:

    VERY accurate for what it is, 1/2" group of 6 wadcutters at 20 feet! i can't complain about that, and i'm not the best shooter. i only used one type of pellet so far, so it could get better! EXCELENT trigger, way better than expected, very light double-action and even lighter single action, tiny tiny bit of creep. SIGHTS are pretty darn good, nothing crazy like hi-viz, just plain old good sights and they're adjustable for elevation AND windage! 10 ROUNDS is awesome capacity for a pellet pistol.

    Things I would have changed:

    the grips are fine for me and most adults, but kids or people with small hands will have a hard time holding it comfortably.

    What others should know:

    i am extremely happy with this gun, and for only $50, what a treat! DEFINATELY buy the extra pellet cylinders, they come in packs of three. i'm happy with the 3 extra i bought but i would have been happier with 6, and for like $5 they're well worth it.

    Things I liked:

    the looks of this gun are unparalleled by most other guns, it looks and feels very nice in your hand. I also like the sound the gun makes, the pop is a nice sound to hear. The sights are easy to alter only requiring a small screwdriver.

    Things I would have changed:

    Better hand grips, they're plastic but they definitely do their job and aren't bad.

    What others should know:

    This is a great value and an awesome gun from Crosman, i would recommend this gun, its just plain fun to shoot!

    Things I would have changed:

    4.0 4.0

    Things I liked:

    Feels pretty sturdy and is accurate out of the box. This is my first pellet gun/pistol, but I found it to be very easy to use and am satisfied with it. I have no previous purchases to compare it to, but I feel like my money was well spent.

    Things I would have changed:

    Better quality grips (cheap plastic that might break eventually...but they get the job done), slightly better accuracy (perhaps it's just me, though)

    What others should know:

    I'm new to this, so I'd say it's good for beginners (or maybe for anyone, really).

  • 5.0 5.0

    5.0 5.0

    Things I liked:

    What can I say, this is a great air pistol. Very powerful, 10 shot magazine (wow!) and looks realistic. Very accurate, too. And pretty light on the CO2 use.

    Things I would have changed:

    You have to take off BOTH hand grips to load a CO2 powerlet, but at least once the grips are on you can't see the tightener.

    What others should know:

    This is the most powerful .177 multi-shot air pistol I have ever used. Personally, its not as comfortable to hold and shoot as some other pistols I've used. If your main desire is power in a .177 multi-shot air pistol, then this is the one you should buy.

  • 4.0 4.0

    5.0 5.0

    3.0 3.0

    Things I liked:

    Big and heavy. I have fired an actual Colt Python and other than the grip it feels like the real thing. Great value for the money.

    Things I would have changed:

    Trigger has a lot of slack, tough to determine when the hammer is going to fall.

    What others should know:

    For some reason this gun does not like hunter pellets. Every time I use them they get stuck in the clip. Pointed pellets by crosman are the best I have tried so far. Accuracy outside 20 ft is abysmal, but then again, distance is not what a gun like this is designed for.
