Crosman Valiant SBD Air Rifle, Nitro Piston Elite
Benefits of the Nitro Piston over a metal mainspring:
Own the backyard range with the Crosman Valiant SBD. This silenced breakbarrel makes for an ideal choice for a backyard friendly breakbarrel for blasting targets, and dispatching pests. Loaded with Crosman’s latest technology, the Valiant sports a hardwood thumbhole stock, and makes use of an improved Silencing Barrel Device (SBD)–an innovative suppressor design that keeps its shots 3x quieter than other breakbarrels in its class. The SBD feature certainly comes in handy at quieting the powerful Nitro Piston Elite powerplant. This lethal gas-piston is specially designed to provide shooters with 15% more speed, 35% more power, and 2x the accuracy of standard gas pistons. This improved power system translates to up to 23 FPE in .177 caliber, and 29 FPE of muzzle energy in .22.
Release all this energy with a pull of the Clean Break Trigger (CBT), a 2-stage adjustable that can be customized to your preferred pull. Once locked and loaded, you can expect lead pellet velocities from you can expect lead velocities up to 1150 fps in .177, and 950 in .22.
The Valiant includes a CenterPoint 4x32 scope for mounting to its 11mm Dovetail rail. For those who want to get started shooting immediately, the Valiant also includes open sights with a fully adjustable rear sight.
If you want an easy to use shooter that keeps the shots high-powered and quiet, choose the Valiant for hours of backyard plinking fun.
|Max Velocity||1400 fps|
|Muzzle Energy||23 ft/lbs|

Things I liked: This is a solid gun for the price. The entire purchase process went smoothly and shipment tracking was spot on. The gun is well made with good attention to detail. All parts accounted for, and all connecting screws firmly tightened. I like to option of using open sites or the scope. Having the open sites available in the event of a scope malfunction while hunting is alway a plus.
Things I would have changed: The open sites work fine, but they are made of plastic, alloy sites would be a nice option. I would also opt for an adjustable post front site. I would also like to see sling mounts.
What others should know: As others have commented, it's a idea to pass a few patches through the barrel prior to shooting for the first time to remove the heavy oil build up from the factory. I find sighting in the open sites prior to mounting the scope is good a practice. They sighted in quickly and seem to be very accurate. Take your time mounting the scope. There are several good videos on the internet regarding scope mounting for air guns. The scope took some time to get adjusted and I mounted and re-mounted a couple times before getting it correctly positioned for me. It took some tweaking, but seems to be working fairly well and has stayed firm on its mounts after ~500 rounds. The rifle kicks like a 20g for about the first 50 rounds. As it breaks in the recoil settles down and the sound decreases notably after 100 rounds. As others have commented, consistency of hold, trigger pull, and breathing result in the tightest groupings, (and practice shooting from varied staces/positions).
Things I liked: I like the adjustable trigger, my "Gamo" did not have one and lead me to buy the Crosman Valiant. The provided scope was not to my liking as I could not adjust a point of aim that was consistent. I addressed that issue with Pyramydair and they concurred that the scope was not very good and maybe should have been left off of the rifle. I did contact Crosman about what i believed to be a defective scope. They were great to deal with and gladly sent me a replacement scope. I did find that the most accurate pellets I shot were the 10.5 gr. Ultra Magnum Crosman pellets. I am sure there are many other brands but as I said in my case I really liked the 10.5 gr. pellets.
Things I would have changed: Have to add a better one.Crosman either leave off the scope or adjust the price higher to add a better one.
Things I liked: The Crosman Valiant SBD Air Rifle, Nitro Piston Elite, .22, packs a nice little punch. Sure there's larger caliber and more powerful, but in this price point, I really see no downside to this rifle. I purchased this to step up from a .177, and I'm glad I did. The wood is far from spectacular, but it is good and looks great. Siting was quick, and so far, even during break in, it seems to be very accurate and consistent. In addition, I'm glad I went through Pyramyd Air, for my purchase. They are responsive and quick to resolve issues. I'm glad I went through them and not settled for what the box stores had in stock.
Things I would have changed: Crosman quality control may have an issue or two. My scope mounts were missing screws, but Pyramyd Air was top notch and corrected the issue with replacement mounts. With the help of Pyramyd Air in this matter, I decided to maintain the five stars.
What others should know: I would definitely recommend this as a daily/entry level rifle. I am far from an experienced airgunner, but am new and interested in what's out there. It took a little time before committing to this rifle, but I'm glad I did.
