Have you ever admired the multi-pump tactical rifle replicas, but wanted something with a little more power? With the DPMS Classic A4 Air Rifle, consider your prayers answered! Now you can get the full power of Crosman's patented Nitro Piston technology modeled after one of the most popular tactical rifles in the world.
Firing alloy pellets at 1200fps and lead pellets at 1000fps this breakbarrel's velocities well surpass that of its multi-pump counterparts. The Crosman A4 features a rifled steel barrel set into a tactical synthetic stock with built in sling mounts. A detachable magazine holds additional .177 ammo. Mount the included CenterPoint Optics 4x32 scope to keep bullseyes and small pests in the crosshairs. Whether you're new to break-barrel air rifles or an experienced shooter, you'll love the look and feel of this rifle.

Things I liked: I like the nitro piston powerplant..and combined with the M16, it is a terrific combo! I like that I have the non-gun permit version, which I rated for up to 500 fps/4.2 fpe and Crosman didn't just detuned to shoot 5 grain ammo up to 500 fps, like they generally do with inexpensive guns like the m4-177, instead they detuned to shoot 7.4 grain lead pellets around 500 fps! When I chronographed it with Crosman's 5.4 grain penetrators it shot as high as 620 fps!
Things I would have changed: I would prefer a buttstock that was adjustable, like the M4, or at least make the classic M16 stock solid. It would be nice if the charging handle functioned as a manual safety, instead of just being a non functioning molded part.
What others should know: Shoot at least 300-500 rounds before casting judgment on the rifle, because mine got smoother as I used it and even the trigger seems to get more predictable.
Things I liked: It's accurate and, from a distance, looks like an AR. Has a picatinny mount. Good if you want to get experience shooting an AR without shooting an AR and don't want to fork out for the Benjamin Armada.
Things I would have changed: Just about everything. - It looks and feels REALLY cheap. Everything on it (e.g. safety, ejection port, primer etc) is fake and non-functional. Up close it looks like a toy. - It's ridiculously hard to cock, and requires a "tap" as well to get the barrel going down. I need to put it on the ground and push down on it, leg cocking gets painful real quick. - It's loud. Like ringing in your ears, probably need hearing protection loud. - The trigger has such a long pull that sometimes I need to stop and take another breath. - The scope loses zero almost every time I shoot it.
What others should know: It looks cool and it's the only AR-style airgun that's affordable, but you're paying for looks only. What you get is the crappiest airgun experience you can imagine. I'm going to be replacing mine with a Benjamin Trail or similar. I like the pistol grip, but I'm a basement shooter and I need something that won't get the neighbors calling the cops on me.
Things I liked: Ergonomics, accuracy, detail, ease of break-in are all among this model's outstanding attributes.
Things I would have changed: For he price, I'd change nothing. OK...maybe make the bottom sling fastener an *actual* moving sling swivel.
What others should know: The trigger may seem particularly hard to pull. It will seem to travel considerably before the sear engages.Oil the trigger as well as all other pivoting points. Using the artillery hold, consistent trigger control, breathing technique and pellets that the gun likes (mine favors Crosman Premier HP 7.9 grains) I can shoot bullseyes inside of a dime at 23 yards all day long, using the provided Center Point 4x32 scope. This is a wonderful shooter and realistic, as well!!

The trigger is horrible, has anyone found a replacement or some way to make it smoother? Does Charlie da tuna make one? I screwed mine all the way in and all the way out and everywhere in between and it still feels like a 10 pound pull that is dragging across sandpaper. Also what kind of pellets work? Mine shot best with RWS supermags, but it is pretty inaccurate at 30 yards. It's not broke in though, maybe it will get better.
There are several videos on YouTube showing how to improve the trigger greatly by using a 2.5 mm bearing found in hobby shops that deal with rc cars. Makes a world of difference
Are you able to change out the buttstock?
Is this compatible with standard AR iron sights ?
Yes, it comes with the standard picatinny rail.
