Review this product
16 March 2009  

Things I liked: Look and feel is great. It came with the pump and it's very easy to fill it. I get quite a few shots between 2000 and 1000 PSI. I have not been able to shoot it a lot, but I have found it to be very accurate with a few different types of pellets at 20 yards. I need to do more testing.
Things I would have changed: The trigger of course. This thing is just all around bad. Why crossman doesn't do something about this thing I don't know. If you shoot the gun enough you can get use to it, but it's just terrible at the start. This gun is loud! I can't stress this enough. If you plan to shoot this gun in an area with neighbors even remotely close make sure they don't mind. Other than those two things the gun itself is great. I don't understand why crossman wouldn't include the degass tool on a gun designed for CO2 and air. Just seems like a nickle and dime kind of thing if you ask me.
What others should know: If you are just getting into PCP or have been in it for a while this gun is a lot of fun, easy to use and it's the cheapest gun in the PCP class. This is one case where the old saying "You get what you pay for" doesn't apply. This gun proves you don't have to pay $600 or more just to get into PCP.

Things I liked: I scope my benjamin .177 cal. once I got it, with BSA 3-12x44, this is my first time owning a PCP rifle and let me tell you it is light which is good if you are planning to take it hunting or plinking, very accurate manage to put 5 shot inside a penny at 17 yards outdoors, for varmint head shot is no problems, I use to have squirells problem here in Tampa Florida better them then me, wood stock is okay my is walnut, trigger could be better.
Things I would have changed: quiter, once you shoot the other varmint run scare, lighter trigger.
What others should know: This is a powerfull air rifle not a toy, manage to hit and make a hole in a empty can of crossman pellets aiming 1 inch high, at 80 yards with discovery hollow .177 cal 10.5 gr., my pump when bad after 3 day, return it back to pyramyd, customer service was very helpfull, I can't wait for the new pump to arrive!

Things I liked: I todaly love this gun. It definately lives up to all the hype i kept hearing about it. I never owned a pellet gun that was more accurate than this one so far. Even over 65 yrds i was keepin nice shot groupings. And all my freinds would tell you i really hate it when i miss or get crappy shot groups. And the pest in my yard never stood a chance aginst this super accurate rifle. Every time i pulled the trigger the rats just kept going down. Outstanding!! Out freaking standing this rilfe kicks ass!!
Things I would have changed: If you dont have a multishot magizine for this rifle already it would really be nice. I would be able to chamber a round without taking my eyes of the target while reaching for another round.
What others should know: If your not sure about buying this gun, Go ahead and buy it its most definately worth it.

Things I liked: everything about it the gun shoots very well is dead accurate and has plenty of power plus the gun looks great the finish on it is nice
Things I would have changed: not much of anything but maybe make an affordable PCP like this in higher calibers
What others should know: this rifle is hard hitting and as accurate as you are the rifle i recieved is very well built and seems like it will last a lifetime and the pump will last just as long im sure and if your considering this rifle i highly recommend it you will not be dissapointed it has very good power mine shot through a 3/4 inch piece of plywood at about 20 ft and it only took about 5 mins for me to sight it in its very accurate and very consistant so overall its been the best airgun i've ever purchased and i highly recommend it to anyone who is considering it, very good product.

Things I liked: Very easy to set up and charge with air.
Things I would have changed: Sights provided did not allow enough range of adjustment. Wood stock had some distinctly discolored areas.
What others should know: This was my first PCP air rifle and made getting started with a PCP very easy. I ordered (and have tried) a wide variety of pellet shapes & weights to use with this rifle. I planned to mount a scope, but tried to sight in with the open sights first. Even with the rear sight adjusted as high as it will go the gun still shoots a bit low at 25 yards. I then mounted a scope and easily got it sighted in. The rifle shot a variety of pellets fairly accurately, but being new it seemed that each group had a "flier" or two in it opening groups to around 1" at 25 yards. Not bad, but not quite as good as I had hoped for. I find the more I shoot the rifle, the better the groups are getting. The break-in period for my rifle seems to have gone well past 200 shots, but as I'm approaching 400 shots through it accuracy is getting better. It seems to handle a wide variety of pellet weights and shapes well. Charging the gun was a bit of a workout, but it just takes some time & effort with the hand pump provided. I shoot until pressure drops to around 1000 psi then charge to 2000 psi, and this takes around 75-80 strokes on the pump. When fully charged it gives me around 30 shots before needing re-charged. I'd have to say that this rifle is a winner! It takes some work to get it charged, but it provides plenty of accurate shooting in return. The accuracy seem to be good throughout the range of 1000 - 2000 psi. Don't be too quick to judge the accuracy potential of the rifle, as (at least for my rifle) the barrel needs a long break-in period. The more I shoot it the better I like it!
