Things I liked: The TR77 is a light, compact, powerful, and accurate air gun. I use a UTG Universal Dovetail To Picatinny/Weaver Adapter (PY-A-7311) with a Leapers UTG 4x32 AO Rifle Scope, Mil-Dot Reticle, 1/4 MOA, 1" Tube, Weaver Rings (PY-A-4315). The original scope does not have an adjustable objective and the image at 15 yards is fuzzy. The UTG adapter allows the scope to be moved closer to your eye. Having the scope near your eye is more relaxing and I find I get better accuracy. The pistol grip is very handy. This is a light airgun and about half the weight of my Hatsan 150. I think the weight of the Hatsan contributes to its great accuracy. The TR77 can be as accurate at 20 yards but it does take more skill to shoot. The trigger pull is typically Crosman; long and predictable. I don't have chronograph, but my penetration tests indicate the TR77 has at least 17 FPE.
Things I would have changed: A good Picatinny/Weaver rail would be nice.
What others should know: I get good accuracy with Crosman Premier .177 Cal, 7.9 Grains, Hollowpoint, 500ct. At almost 1000 rounds, the gun is working perfectly. The trigger action has improved with use, I believe. All mounting screws are tight and the metal finish is perfect. The TR77 is a very well made air gun.
Things I liked: Light weight and nicely balanced rifle. Good feel and comfortable pistol grip. Easy cocking even with the short barrel.
Things I would have changed: Put picatinny rail and a decent scope on it. Trigger leaves room for improvement.
What others should know: This is a great entry level air rifle and for the price I paid definitely worth the money. Power is plenty and accuracy absolutely adequate. I was able to hit a Quarter at 30 yards. Unfortunately the scope kept sliding in the rings. and the rings are pretty flimsy. A weaver rail like on the Nitro Venom would be a better option.
Things I liked: This gun is, absolutely, the best looking, balanced, lightest and handy pellet gun I have ever owned, perfect for shoulder firing. Now, I'm not comparing the stock to a finely grained, walnut stocked (read expensive) weapon, but I don't have to worry about minor bumps, scratches, etc., and, this is one sexy looking "B-B gun"! The short barrel and Nitro piston mean the cocking effort is not for girlie men, but is doable for 80yr olds. (OK, I have to admit cheating with a short 1.25" sleeved over a 1" pvc cocking aid that I devised for long sessions refining scope sighting and evaluating various pellets .) Am still doing work in these areas, but am centering on 8-9gr pellets with <0.5 groups at 20yds. This is, actually, a little better than my .22cal. Trail NP II with 4-16x40 scope, but the latter has not benefited from the trigger treatment that I realized was necessary for the accuracy this new, little beast can produce.
Things I would have changed: Out of the box, it had absolutely the worst trigger imaginable--about 1" gritty, 5# take-up followed by another 3/4" of 5+# gravel before unpredictably arriving at pellet firing. Without some additional, imaginative work, this poor thing would be struggling for 2" groups at 20yds. The manufacturer should be ashamed for allowing customers to be exposed to such an abominable excuse for a trigger. Also, the safety trigger blade nestles nearly against the trigger, which is only a minor irritation, except on cold days here in Ohio, when my fingers get a little numb. So, with an upgraded scope and easy trigger mod., I really, really like this tack-driving rifle.
What others should know: TR77 NPS combo purchased from PA with 10 for 10. Due to other reviews of the supplied 4x32 CenterPoint/mounts, I padded my order with an Accushot 1-pc 1 dovetail mount and supplied an UTG 3-9x32 adj. AO scope left over from another project. Seems to be perfect with the objective about 1/8" above the receiver keeping the scope axis as close to the bore as possible and perfect for 20 to 50yd. work. A tip of the hat to Greg at PA, who estimated the combo would work. Order was perfectly packaged with no damage to the box or contents. Chrono from PA showed velocities with the 7.0 RWS diablo averaging 1018ft/sec. Loudness is a little more than my .22 Trail NPII, but diminishes with heavier pellets. Since the 77 is so new to me, cannot predict what things will be in the future. Would strongly urge shooters buy this gun asap.

Does the stock actually slide or is it just for show ?
Is recoil sharp like on Gamo IGT rifles that cause the scope to move forward?
using a utg 3-12x44 long scope. what mounts are preferred on the crosman tr77. thanks
A one piece scope mount is always better on a break barrel rifle it helps the scope last longer. On a PCP theres no recoil so you could use whatever mount you want.
Based on my experience with the 3-9x32 UTG on the TR77NPS, am sure u should use high mounts. Consider the one piece Accushot, since it seems to be a very secure one on a dovetail, but check with PA and see what they advise.
