Things I liked:

Just bought the .22 caliber. Fit and finish. Low recoil, low noise. Performance per dollar spent. Solid lock up. Nice smooth trigger and i have not modified anything yet. Hits like a hammer on squirrels. Only took maybe 30 shots before it started shooting strait. Gamo match Training 15.42 gn works well so far. Sights are easy to use. For the dollar spent what more do you want from the least cost entry level air rifle..?

Things I would have changed:

Well, Install the rear sight in the correct position at the manufacture

What others should know:

Make sure all screws are tight. It is not a light weight rifle. Had to adjust the rear sight way off the centerline to hit the sight in target. With open sights you can hit a beer can every time at 40 yards. I believe it can do even better when broken in. A woman or younger person may have issues cocking this one... Good rifles like this will hook you on the sport...

Things I liked:

Simplicity of use, all you need is the rifle and some ammo. As for the ammo, the Vantage doesn't seem to be overly picky about the ammo, although I have to sight-in the rifle for some pellets, but after that's done they fire true. It seems to like pellets that weigh around 18-19 gr., and it really seems to love the H&N Baracuda Hunter Extreme, 18.52 gr. pellets the best so far. And oddly enough it didn't seem to care for the Crosman Premier Domed Ultra Heavy 19 gr. pellets. They were loose fitting and would occasionally fall out while returning the barrel to the locked position. It doesn't seem to care for the H&N Terminator pellets either. It liked the H&N Field, Target, Trophy pellets and even though I wasn't paying attention to the head diameter and thought that they were all the same size, due to my inexperience, I accidentally bought the 5.55 mm head size, but the rifle liked them anyway and fired them with authority and accuracy. So it seems to love pellets that fit snuggly.

Things I would have changed:

The stock is a bit to long for me and can be difficult to shoulder quickly. It also won't take a scope without a scope-stop or it will throw the scope right off the back of the dove-tails. so a Picatinny/Weaver rails would be nice. Other than that, I can't think of anything else I'd change. Although, if you buy this rifle check for loose screws. The rear sight was loose and it took me a few shots and missed targets before I realized this, but after tightening the screws it fired like a champ.

What others should know:

Check for loose screws and if you plan on using a scope you'll need a scope-stop.

Things I liked:

This is so much quieter than my old Benjamin 1000 springer. The gas piston makes a huge difference in kick, and sound level. The wood stock is beautifully finished and the gun has a nice tight feel. d I purchased this model in .22 and the box and specifications say "Up to 950 fps with alloy pellets. " There is no way this is even close to a realistic number. I paid for the 10 for 10 service and repeated the testing with my own chronograph with a range of pellet weights after it was broken in. Results are listed below.

Things I would have changed:

I would prefer a more positive closure to improve accuracy and provide a tighter seal. A few of my shots were low and slow because the barrel did not fully close. I now take special care to make sure it is closed. I wish this were made in Bloomfield NY rather than in China and would gladly pay more for it.

What others should know:

After breaking in the gun with about 70 to 100 shots, I measured the velocity with about 6 to 10 shots at each of 7 different pellet weights. I also cleaned the barrel with 2 stacked cleaning pellets after each test string. No result is near the advertised 950 fps. (Maybe you will luck out and yours will.) Pellet gr.

    What is the cocking effort for the Crosman Vantage Nitro Piston .22 Air Rifle?

    • JRG from USA answered:

      around 35 lbs

  • Wade from USA asked:

    Can somebody suggest a decent muzzle brake that might increase accuracy. Mine is still making quarter size groupings at 30 m but if there's something that can improve that I'm game.
