Things I liked: This Legacy has approximately 200 pellets thru it, and has made a 1-3/8" group at 10 yds using JSB Match Exact 7.33 gr, and the iron sights. The shot sound is backyard friendly at 10 pumps, 510 fps, which produced the best accuracy. 4.23 fpe. The sights are plenty sufficient, with elevation and windage adjustability. On the 10th pump the effort is around an easy15 lbs, the lever being a long 10- 3/4". The pump should receive Pellgun oil often enough to feel the lubrication during pumping. The single-stage .steel. trigger is excellent- around a few pounds pull and smooth if we'll lubed. The stock is substantial in strength. The cross-bolt safety is in the right place, but makes an audible click when positioned, even if slowly using a thumb and finger. The rifle is somewhat muzzle heavy, but the gun is so light overall it puts some weight where it's needed when aiming. Cocking the bolt back isn't the easiest, but shouldn't be a problem. It's a fine and recommended gun for the price
Things I would have changed: Bigger loading opening. Smooth the safety cam.
What others should know: The open sights allow getting on target quickly. Carry or mount a soft poker for aligning the pellet in the chamber. Lube it a lot. It's price is low and it's performance is fine.
Things I liked: I freely admit that this was a nostalgia purchase, but it was on sale and what can I say? Plus, its rated for two more pumps - 12 instead of 10.
Things I would have changed: Well, it's all plastic, and I always consider wood nicer, but at this price point, I'm not complaining. I would like to see the buttstock filled with an expanding foam so that hollow sound disappears.
What others should know: Good beginning gun for kids. Variable pressure available so it can be used in a basement with minimum pumps. Loading port is difficult for big fingers. I solved that by using lead round ball ammo (Gamo). Its sized to take the rifling so the magnet isn't needed. Just drop one in the port and close the bolt.
Things I liked: I'm very familiar of the 2100/AM77 so no surprises with Legacy 1000. I like the look, size, weight of the rifle and with this one the accuracy right out of the box (after looking it over, making sure all is secure, bbl cleaned, etc.) after adjusted the sights and soon mounting a 3 MOA dot size red-dot sight. I am getting a cluster of several shots at 50' that are slightly bigger than a navy bean. I like accuracy.
Things I would have changed: I would try to get way closer to that 10 FPE mark at max (12 pumps) if I were making a point, a big deal of it in advertising. The one I got even after a tiny amount of proper oiling with the correct oil (silicone AG oil) only achieved 8.4 FPE on 12 pumps with 8.64 grain 4.52 mm H & N FTT pellets. I tested a number of pellets several times. One time several years ago I had a unmodded new out of the box Remington AM77 that actually did produce 10 FPE on 10 pumps - to be exact 10.4 FPE and that was with CPLs 7.9 grain. So it is possible without mods/tuning. Just quality control rather than luck will get a 10 FPE or so gun into many buyers hands.
What others should know: Don't be afraid of plastic. Don't hold pistol grip of shoulder stock to pump - especially to several or 12 max pumps. Don't do that super fast wild little boy style pumping. Even with compact scope or red-dot sight you can still grab in that area and with other hand do smooth full pump strokes all the way out and all the way back to compression tube. So many cheat like push ups and don't get air in on a stroke or 2. To heck with BBs - use those in your Red Ryder! Easy on the oil/lube and in the right locations. With a little practice loading will become much easier (pellets). Don't leave this gun out in the Sun on a table or whatever all day! Store with a couple of pumps in gun - but not cocked nor loaded.

Besides prise and looks is there any real different between the 1000 and the am77?
The AM77 has a chromed/nickel barrel,and includes a scope. The guns are otherwise pretty much the same.
What type of oil should be used to lube this rifle ?
The instruction manual PDF on the Crosman website says to use Crosman Silicone RMCOIL, which is Silicone Chamber Oil. One drop in the pump cup and hinges every 250 shots.
