Crosman's Optimus air rifle delivers authoritative knockdown power. This version comes with a CenterPoint 4x32 scope + mount. Take common garden pests such as rats, mice & rabbits. The scope will help you home in on your prey and increase accuracy. If you want to take slightly larger pests (possums, woodchucks, raccoons, etc.), select .22 caliber.
If you prefer to plink, this gun is up to it. Shoot at spinners and paper targets all day long. It's also great for killing soda cans!

Things I liked: Weight - a little over 6 lbs Moderate cocking effort Very good power - over 17ft-lbs Good workmanship on the trigger parts
Things I would have changed: Crappy rear sight Poor QC on the barrel
What others should know: Eh... so close... the powerplant on this one is quite good... averaging over 740fps with Crosman Premier HP's. Accuracy, though, even at 10 meters was - bleh. Pushed a pellet down the barrel and could feel a number of rough spots and a nasty bur near the muzzle. Cleaning it, touching it up with a needle file and recrowning did not help. Gave up and ordered a replacement barrel from Crosman (about $20!). Another doggone bur at the muzzle! But this time touching up the crown removed it, and the rest of the bore was a lot smoother. Accuracy is finally adequate. So in the end I have a rifle I am happy with. The Crosman Quest platform is a very likeable one, just like the old Gamo series it is based on. And Crosman has gotten the manufacturer to improve many things over the old Xisico B18 and B19 days. And even though I'm still pleased even after having to buy another barrel... please, Crosman, better barrel QC. It'd be worth the few extra bucks...
Things I liked: I received my optimus today and recommend pyramid's 10 for 10 check. velocities were accurate and sights on out of the box. I shot 30 rounds and found it to be accurate @ 20 yds offhand. groups were 2" with open sights. it had a fairly easy cocking effort and is light enough to handle well with the right amount of heft and balance. this rifle is a great buy for informal targets and the range to be a good squirrel and rabbit gun. besides, it is just fun to shoot.
Things I would have changed: offer in a synthetic thumb hole stock
What others should know: really like the fiber optic sights, accuracy, and handling
Things I liked: quality of product and general appearance
Things I would have changed: like to see same power in .22
What others should know: teach safety first to all kids using any type of guns

Where is this gun made?
It is assembled in the US. Some parts may be made in China.
I am from canada and i do not have a liscence. Can Pyramid air Detune this gun to make it below 500 fps
We do not de-tune airguns. You would have to get a low power model in Canada
why will some pellets work and others not. The ones that don't, I have to pull out, scrap and then try a new one? The pellets I bought with the rifle are Crossman Destroyer
Crosman, only one s .
