Verified Purchase

Things I liked: Stock is beautiful for a rifle in this price range. Finish very nice. It locks securely and is a little on the heavy side helping to keep it steady when aiming. The sights after adjusting so far have held true.

Things I would have changed: Sights are plastic and would prefer metal. They work just fine but I just hope I do not accidentally knock them off, especially the rears.

What others should know: I got mine in .22 and have shot maybe 50 rounds of JBS 14.32gr. pellets and it seems to like them. This gun is somewhat loud compared to my old Crosman 66 in .177. Some may find it a little heavy also. Overall I am quite happy with it for the price! I would recommend it for sure!

Things I liked: Not sure. I gave it 3 for accuracy as I'm not quite sure if it's the gun or the gunner.

Things I would have changed: See below.

What others should know: I entered a review on this and typed the info w/o thinking. The gun was shooting way low and I said should I get heavier pellets. I meant lighter ones. Well the arrived today and I expected even lower groups. Nope. NOW so high I had to dial the sight all the way down and still high at 25+ feet. Tried every .22 pellet I have and all were going high and left. Changed holds all over the place. I have shot many of these guns and know they all have a sweet spot. Obviously I'm missing this one if they can go so low I can't cope with the sight on one day and a week later the same thing but high AND so far left this time around that the windage could not cope. Again, I mis-typed in my first comment. This is the real one. Any ideas? I'm not saying this is a bad rifle. I'm saying this long time shooter is stumped.

Things I liked: Nice feel. Trigger is okay.

Things I would have changed: This thing fires so low that even with the "iron" sights at the highest position I am WAY low. I purchased the heaviest pellets I could find and they are on the way but no one mentions the need to for such heavy (and more expensive) pellets so I was wondering what the problem is. Breaking in period? I'm a long time break barrel shooter so this is not my first rodeo but it's the first time I've had such a drastic problem. I'm not about to put a scope on this power house until I can afford a good one that it will break sooner or later so that option with a drastic hold over is out.

What others should know: Just wanted feedback on the low poi and possible solutions other than the heaviest pellets I can find. I don't think I should have to aim 3 inches below the target at 40 feet away.

  • Bud from USA asked:

    I just received my Crosman Vantage 22 cal.. It is listed at 7.1 lbs. it is actually closer to 8 lbs. I wanted a gun right around 7 lbs. or less due to a shoulder replacement surgery. Why such a discrepancy in the stated weight? I have been handling and fixing guns for about 60 years and understand about differences in wood density, but this much difference is a first.

    • Mark from USA:

      The weights of guns are usually from the manufacturer. we do not weigh guns thru a production run. They change parts at will. It is probably a combination of a more dense stock and some heavier parts.

  • Roger from USA asked:

    Can a scope be added even though it has a sight?

    • Chevota from USA:

      Yes, it has a dovetail scope rail. Many Vantage guns come with a scope.

  • cj from USA asked:

    What pellet wight in .22 gives the 800 fps

    • Chevota from USA:

      John: Your Summit is clearly the NP2 version which makes more power. The original Summit, which is the same as this Vantage, cannot produce those velocities. Fyi you should check your seals for leakage because those #'s are a bit low for an NP2. Assuming you're interested, because most people do want it to make full power. Pretty much all of them need a new main seal, imo, which are ~$2 from Crosman. Crosman doesn't provide the part # for the seal (or trigger parts) in the parts list, so the seal is # CRS5177-012 I speculate it's because the seal and trigger part #'s are for the much older gun the NP2 is based on so the part # would be a clue the gun and trigger are not "all new" as they claim. I have both guns so it was obvious the NP2 is basically just a magnum version of the old gun. If you need the trigger part #'s, or are curious about the original gun, look up the Legacy, the old Legacy # B1K77 or B8M22. The next step in models was the RNP & NPSS, then finally the "all new" (cough) NP2.

    • John from USA:

      My .22 Benjamin Summit shoots the 8.18 grain Tin Alloy Winchester Max Speed Dome pellet across my Competition Electronics ProChrono at a 5 shot average of 1048 fps. Shot the 14.3 gr Crosman Premier Ultra Magnum Dome at an average of 829 fps. H&N 13.0 grn Hollow Point at an average of 864 fps. Get a chronograph. Woodys World.

    • Chevota from USA:

      Only the lightest, like 11.5gr, but no guarantees unless you tune it
