Black Ops Tactical Sniper Air Rifle
Benefits of a gas-piston powerplant over a metal mainspring:
The manufacturer claims this gun delivers .20-inch groups (center-to-center) at 10 meters.
This is a breakbarrel air rifle, but the manufacturer has installed a bolt to give this air gun a more authentic tactical look. The bolt is non-functional.
Where most tactical shooters only launch BBs, the Black Ops Tactical Sniper is something special. Instead of a smoothbore BB rifle, this rifled gun will give you more accuracy than ever with lead pellets! Featuring and adjustable comb, you’ll have no trouble finding a comfortable hold. Each Sniper Air Rifle includes a 4x32 scope or removable fiber optic sites if you want to test your shooting skills. The adjustable bipod attaches directly to the forearm so there’s no need for awkward barrel clamps or added adaptors. Go prone, post up, and send some lead downrange!

Things I liked: so freaking powerful! great accuracy and looks so cool. i have another pellet gun that bounced off mini kegs and did not puncture it....this gun shot clean through both sides and stuck in the tree behind it, and the holes were huge in the mini keg.
Things I would have changed: scope. junk scope honestly. i replaced mine with a 6-24X50 scope with a sunshield
What others should know: this is heavy for a pellet gun. there are a few pinch points, bipods, and when u break the barrel. be careful
Things I liked: Pretty powerful airgun. Strong material. Very affordable price
Things I would have changed: There a couple of thing black ops should change in this gun to make it even better. The main one is the rail base. Even though the frame of the gun is made of strong polymer or plastic, the gun is not so constantly accurate. The reason for that is because the rail is screwed to the plastic frame rather than the metal part of the riffle -like most other springers. This, me and my cousin realized caused slight movement every time we shot (very strong recoil) causing slight variations in the scope. We finally welded the steel bases to the rifle and problem solved. The gun is extremely accurate and amazing power. The other thing is that the scope is not so powerful, but good enough for close range small game hunting.
What others should know: good quality, very powerful.
Things I liked: I ordered my 22 cal. Black Ops from Pyramyd, after purchasing the 17 cal locally, so I can share some good info on both. While the 17 cal has greater and flatter velocity for distant targets and small game, the 22 cal. has the foot pounds needed for Woodchuck out to 80 yards. It took 3 rounds, but stopped this destructive rodent. The 22 cal. also has a real silencer on the barrel while the 17 cal does not. Both rifles are heavy and will be less desirable on a long walk thru the woods. After I received & reviewed the gun as closely as possible, I concluded that Black Ops is possibly using Crosman's Nitro Piston XL or a Chinese clone for both of these guns. I own several Crosman rifles & their Nitro Piston design is distinguishable enough to make a comparison. This explains why these Black Ops are as powerful as a Nitro Piston 2 & yet the break barrel cocking is a lot tougher to cock.like the Nitro Piston XL is. This rifle has more metal than plastic, which I liked.
Things I would have changed: While this rifle's design, & bi-pods are cool, the bi-pods are a hindrance, & not a help in shooting tight bullseyes, because they don't really meet the "Artillery Style" shooting method, that enhances air gun accuracy. I folded up the bi-pods, & stuck a sand bag just in front of the trigger guard, to get the best consistent accuracy. I also use my left hand ( I am right handed) & placed it over the stock's comb. This not only anchors the rear of the gun, but it also allows me to rest my right cheek on that left hand, as I look through the scope. While I left the inexpensive 4 power scope on the 17 cal.,Black Ops, I purchased a 4X16 X50 mm variable scope. for the 22 cal. The 50 mm opening allows a great more light to enter the scope for dawn & dusk shooting while the 16 power allows me to review pellet hole patterns at 50 yards. I try to use the heaviest pellets possible for both rifles, for accuracy, knock down power, & for silence. Anything over 1050 fps is going to make noise.
What others should know: Assulming I am correct that the Black Ops Tactical Sniper Air Rifle is using the Crosman Nitro Piston XL... or a darn good copy of it...made in China... would explain why it represents such a great value for the money compared to most any other break barrel rifle out there. I removed most screws, one at a time and put lock tight on them, before replacing them, as I do with all air guns. I believe this is even more important in any gun that is using the Nitro Piston XL or something close to it. I also found some rubber tips to glue on the bi-pods, so that they wouldn't move, when shooting this rifle. Nonetheless, as I shared above, I ended up folding up the bi-pods and placed a sand bag in front of the trigger guard to tighten my shot groups satisfactorily. Lastly, I am 72 years old, and have had air guns most of my life. I would like my review to be as accurate as my target groups are. That was my intent here. You can trust this rifle, and you can trust Pyramyd Air. Russ Jones
