Things I liked: Seems like an OEM drop in replacement. YouTube video was a great help. Shoots like a dream. My Titan had been down for about two years, part is expensive, seems to shoot faster than the original. Whacked a Crow at about 75 yards, second shot after sight in. Lights out.
Things I would have changed: A little more explanation on disconnecting and re-connecting the Trigger group would have been helpful.
What others should know: This Part costs almost half the price of a complete Titan, choose carefully.
Things I liked: Say what ya will about crosman, at least it's not an exercise in attrition to get a part for one. Simple to work on, too. Just a bar clamp and some common hand tools and the piston had my Shockwave back to specs in minutes. Hope this one lasts longer than the last gas ram tho... I mean, for longevity of the gas spring being one of the primary advantages crosman touts, I gotta say, not in my experience so far. In fact, about half the life of the comparably priced coil springers I own. I'll cut them some slack tho, I doubt they expected someone to shoot the thing as much as I have.
Things I would have changed: I'd drop the price a tad. Half the price of the rifle is a bit ridiculous. Ya know, I'd bet the farm it cost less than ten to produce. I was actually tempted to forego the gas ram purchase and buy a crosman optimus for the extra parts and the bonus wooden stock.
What others should know: I'm not planning on ever pulling the trigger on an open breech so I ditched the anti bear trap linkage and spring. It makes breakdown and reassembly a breeze. Maybe I'll mail the linkage back to crosman so they can use the steel for some field worthy open sights. I joke, I love the crosman rifle, but seriously, I'd give their plastic rear sight about two hours on a canoe trip. Shame too, it's such a simple, powerful, accurate and robust camp rifle otherwise.
Things I liked: I 'm very happy because after change my spring rifle to a Nitro Pistol, Now I have my Crosman Optimus Nitro Piston, 950 fps. It was easy to do the change.
Things I would have changed: Not any.
What others should know: I thing You are very professional on what are doing.

I have a Canadiam version of the Benjamin Trail no all weather (495fps), I was wondering if this would fit it?
Some CA guns used the full power spring, some a low power. I can tell by feel but otherwise you just have to take it apart. The part # is on the spring, full power # starts with BT9, low power are usually BT5, maybe BT6. Other mods to reduce power are a hole in the piston or a longer piston. The full power piston is ~150mm long, longer ones can be cut down to 150 and holes can be plugged. Don't discard the low power spring, it makes for a nice shooting gun once the other fixes are done. You or someone may want it. And if you had a low power spring then this may put you into PAL territory, same with the other mods. If you want a new low power spring then buy from The Gravel Agency in CA which carries all the parts. The BT5 spring doesn't have nearly the failure rate as this one, so if yours leaked I think you have the BT9.
It should, but I would recommend calling Crosman to confirm first just to make sure there aren't other parts needed
Will this work on benjamin varmint .22
Yes, this is the exact spring that comes with it from the factory
Will this piston fit my crosman vantage .177. I want to increase it from 495 fps
If it has a gas spring now then see the reply I wrote to Devon above. If it has a coil spring then you can either buy a full power coil or convert it to gas spring. Either way I have detailed info in a tuning package if you want; chevota at hotmail and I'll send it
